    My girlfriend and I found a small stash at a Walmart in the middle of no where. We picked up a few extra Deluxe Primes and Bumblebees for those at Botcon who don't have a way to get out to the stores.

    If anyone is interested and you're in Cincy for Botcon PM me and I can hook you up.

    Just want to clear up some things. I was on the Wed tour and they were going to stop by TRU for us but we heard that some scalpers had made it into the TRU and the persons at the register that day let them slip through the crack.

    The guy showing up at Hyatt with the bags of Animated was Pete. He'd talked to the TRU near his place (which is 1hr away) and they let him take orders for all of us on the tour so the toys he was showing up with was all spoken for and paid for at retail price.

    So yes, we did get scalped but it wasn't Pete. He was great for getting us all the animated toys.

    Thats good to know that had me very upset until I found out and now this confirms it, so I guess I got mad at the wrong guy.

    Yeah, the toy manager at TRU in Kenwood was very upset that it happened at his store.

    And if Funpub is able to figure out who the scalpers are they are going to ban them from the dealer room.

    Also, we saw a bunch of Hasbro boxes in the dealer's room on Wed. Couldn't read what they were but either Animated is going to be flooding the door prizes or Hasbro may have gotten smart and put up a booth. Pete did end up with some extras (NOT very many at all) that he'll be selling at retail at his booth. I'm sure he'll be okay with me plugging him like this.

    I was surprised within about 5 minutes of posting about the animated figures I had, they were mostly spoken for. Then I ran into Draven and he picked up the last one I had.

    These things are hot, I hope Hasbro is bringing animated figures to botcon, just to teach the scalpers a lesson.

    :lol  though I guess I qualify as a scalper, I think I cleared enough money on the 6 figures I sold to pay for lunch for myself at Wendy's :p 

    but more importantly I was able to help a few people out who don't have cars.
