    How much news do we usually get on preview night? Don't they usually not put new figures into the display case until after the toy panel? I feel so dumb asking this because I've watched comicon updates live for 3 years but still cant remember :lol

    I don't know. Wave 4 of the deluxes are all just repaints. It seems obvious that they would show them here, but it's been obvious several times already. It's just getting weird. I'm no longer holding my breath.

    Monday after the convention. The time kind of varies, but there are usually a group of us up all night each year BSing in a thread. I am too lazy to check, but I think Blaster went live at about 8:30am pst, Soundwave 4am, and Classics Nemesis 9am. Atleast that seems about right.

    Prime-Prime seems like the exclusive of the two that will sell out fast (still not sure if I am getting that). I would guess that the Starscream Joe will sell out lightning fast, and the BIG movie Prime will take a little while based on the price.

    This year is going to be a bloodbath for SDCC exclusives. They were talking about them on slickdeals during the HTS groupon offer, and there are of TON of people sitting and waiting with groupon Hasbro money to buy these and flip them on ebay.

    If you want something, get it as early as possible.

    If I had to guess, I'd think most of the new stuff will be waiting for the panels, but I've got my fingers crossed that stuff like the HA Soundwave might be out for preview night.

    Agreed, but we KNOW the stuff in the Walmart listings is coming. I mean, if they aren't showing those, it's hard to believe they're showing ANYTHING new.

    Last year's SDCC was disappointing, maybe this year's will be too, but even if Soundwave and friends have been idiotically delayed to 2012, we could STILL see them tomorrow.

    I'm expecting that. A lot of people are saying we'll see Voyager Prime Prime, Bulkhead, deluxe Movie Mirage, Wheeljack, etc, but I just can't believe it after last year, where all we got was "It's so... GREEEEEEEN" Devastator, Highlighter Decals Barricade, and a bunch of other crappy repaints.
