    Is anyone going to SDCC?? I am looking for a fellow board member to hook me up with the TF and GI Joe exclusives. I can provide money upfront.

    I will, but I'm helping someone else as well. Can you tell me what you want? Sometimes the Hasbro booth limits you to buy one of certain toys.

    I am looking to get at least one of each of the following:

    Rust in Piece Cliffjumper
    SDCC Bruticus
    Shockwave HISS Tank with Destro
    Constructicon BAT and mini G1 Soundwave with removable cassettes
    Kimi Arashikage AKA Jinx figures

    If possible more but I would be happy with one of each.

    I'll be willing to help. I don't need you to pay me the money up front for the items. I do ask that you're willing to pay me 150 dollars to wait in line for a chance to possibly get what you're asking for. There's no guarantees though, because it's still kinda like a lottery. So for me to take the time out of my weekend to help you out is important to you, 150 :D

    I appreciate your offer but for the price of the items plus your "line" fee I would need a guarantee. This is the first year I believe I may miss out on the SDCC Items :( 

    Thank you though but I will have to pass.

    True, there's also HTS.com. Last year I couldn't secure the items at the con itself, so I still had to resort with the website. Got lucky too.

    this is true! There still may be a chane to go to SDCC as well. The tickets should be going up for sale again soon.

    can you answer this question for me, do the toys go on sale day one of SDCC or is it on a certain day during the con?

    They actually start selling items during Preview Night, which is the day before SDCC opens. Then they sell throughout. Hasbro only sells a certain amount of their products a day, so if it sells out on Saturday, you still have another chance on Sunday.

    I'm sorry but I can't get you the G.I. Joe stuff. I'm already getting them for someone else and the limit for Cobra Starscream last year was one. If the limit was six, I could buy it for you. What the mod said also.

    I currently am going on just Sunday but I will try for Thursday when ever they sell them again.
    I am totally gonna take video of things for my two or three youtube channels.
    It would totally rock to meet up with some folks while I am there.

    And I wanna be up front, I am already helping a guy get some when I go.

    I tried to get a badge at the resale today but couldn't get one. My computer must be slow. Sucks.

    SDCC Resale

    So is anyone else trying to get any SDCC resale tickets today? I am currently in position #2788. Hopefully I can score some tickets to SDCC.
