    Honestly I’m torn. I really really want the Throne of the Primes, as it appeals to me in just about every way. But I can’t decide if I want to chance it and wait and possibly miss it going up on HTS(last year was a fucking nightmare), or if I should just get one off of ebay for an unholy price right after they are sold at the convention.

    I mean, do I really want to put forth the effort to wait so long and be so vigilent only to miss it because the went up at some odd time when I was forcefully preoccupied(like work)? Do I really want to deal with all that bullshit, or should I just pay a markup for it and have the security of knowing I’ll have one weeks before it ever goes up on HTS?

    Honestly it would depend on if there was a good deal to be had on eBay. I mean if it doesn’t look like your going to lose that much compared to waiting for the actual MSRP then I’d chance it. Otherwise play the waiting game OR just forget the whole thing. All depends on how much you want to dig into your wallet.

    I'd say give HTS a shot. Plus there will be some availability at BBTS and TCP at a markup but nowhere near eBay prices.

    Alright, so I thought there wasn't a lottery thing for exclusives but I guess I'm wrong. Since you seem to be going (good luck to you!), could you explain briefly how this works? The SDCC site I looked up was surprisingly vague and unhelpful.

    It's different this year but what is happening this year is that we show interest in companies and time slots, then there will be a drawing on the 13th and we will be told if we can purchase and when no idea of quantities and this is only for a few companies and today for some signings too. Be interested to see how it works out. Last year I was able to purchase exclusives without a pass (passes were given out first thing in the morning,.I got there at 6am and still missed out) after 3pm but as there are slots open until closing that seems unlikely this year :( 

    Hopefully I can get an opening on one of the two days I'm there.

    This Throne of the Primes is the first time I've absolutely needed a transformers sdcc exclusive! Does anyone know generally when hts sells off the remaining stock? Is it right after the con? A few days after? A few weeks?

    It’s That Time Again!

    Hasbro Toy Shop has already begun putting up placeholders for their San Diego Comic Con Exclusives for 2018!

    As of this post, none of the items are Transformers related, but we already know there will be soon. Those of us that have been doing this for years, know about the countless nights of F5ing. Fortunately, they do give a date for release, so we can all request off from our jobs LOL.

    What all are y’all planning on getting this year?

    I'm trying to save my money right now, but if I can find that set with the gold Bumblebee and the two dinosaur cassette tapes for a reasonable price on the aftermarket, I'll get it.

    Deluxe bumble and 2 cassettes... Good times when $50 gets SDCC Soundwave and 4 cassettes, or Blaster and 3 cassettes.

    If I see Primal Optimus I'll probably grab him, assuming he's roughly retail (like Shreddimus Prime was). But I'm really going to try to get Bumblebee/cassettes.
