    Yup! I hope this is also going to be somewhat effective in reducing the dumb af scalp-a-thon that breaks out every year at SDCC...
    I mean, exclusives have been in plentiful supply enough lately that people shouldn't keep thinking they can hawk
    exclusives to pay for their trips. I always get so much fan rage when I see people struggling to drag out bags filled with two of everything.

    They've always been pretty serious about cancelling multiple orders for SDCC stuff.



    I don't think they have ever taken phone orders for SDCC exclusives. Their peculiarly timed meetings some years became infamous.

    They are already showing up on Ebay as preorders for over $250 for prime and $100+ for the Bumblebee set.

    They'll never stop, I saw the throne for 400 on there, someone actually bought it, the rest are like 350, 250 etc. Someone is always willing to pay, we'll see how things change now that we all know the actual price

    "4 Convention exclusive Prime Master figures: Nexus Prime, Amalgamous Prime, Prima Prime, and the legendary 13th Prime."

    Is it just me or does anyone else think that making almost a fourth of the advertised prime master mainline part of a limited convention exclusive a real dick move on Hasbro's part?

    I know it certainly has made my desire to complete the line a low priority now.

    I'm glad I'm not the only who interpreted Hasbro making the 5 last prime masters exclusives to larger sets as a giant FU to people wanting to collect all 13.

    Been that way for the past few years. Nothing new.

    Been that way for many years. Doesn't really change much.

    And those with large wallets and impatience can waste their time and money.

    Either impatient, has money to burn, or it's someone with multiple eBay accounts or asks a friend to hit BIN just to drive the price up. I love the people who claim they will have at least ten available. If Hasbro really does stick with their limits then a lot of so-called "pre-orders" won't be filled and a lot of eBay claims will be filed...

    Call it what you will but one thing it is for sure is a good business move, "oh you want to to complete the 13? sure, sure, in addition to the 8 retail figures that come with cool Decoy armor, buy predaking 159.99 and Throne of The Primes 69.99 and you're all set"

    Not really, if you do the math they are still charging msrp for the components. So in that regard they are out the cost of the material and printing for the stupid throne.

    So not only are they talking a small loss on that, they are pissing off those who have been trying to collect the line, but haven't yet done so because of slow/crap distribution. So not only are they potentially jeopardizing the rest of the lines sales, they are also leaving a bad taste in the mouth of the collectors who might potentially pass up future lines as a result.

    I think just out of good will alone they would have been better off releasing the prime masters at retail and just including special clear variants with primal like they did for the "trilogy" boxed figures.

    It's like I said, finding this out certainly has changed my purchase plans for the line. I am just relieved I only could find wave 1 in my area up until now.
