    Did a bit of searching and couldn't find info, for attendees of SDCC last year (or other years), does anyone know what the quantity limits were per time through line on for attendees?:
    Ultimate Optimus Prime
    1st Edition Edition Deluxe OP
    GI Joe Starscream

    or anything from the past if you have attended.

    Thanks in advance.

    Starsceam was 1 per every wait in line. The other 2 I'm not sure what the limits were.

    The only one I can say with any certainty was that Universe (2008) Nemesis Prime was at least 3 per person in line; myself and a friend were able to get one each through another friend in line, who also got his own. Beyond that, I don't know anything about the limits.

    Thanks for the replies. Trying to gauge what to expect for this years exclusives. But I am not sure how excited I am going to be about Bruticus by then.

    I think Ultimate Optimus was 2 per person and Prime Optimus was 4 per? I thought the GI Joe Starscream was actually 2 per...I thought the only thing from last year that was 1 per person was that huge Death Star/Star Wars figure display set thing, but I could be mistaken.

    Ah sweet! I must've flipped the Sentinel and the Starscream in my head I guess.

    Wow, 4 Ultimate OPs...I completely forgot about that (most of the larger items end up limited to 1-2 every year, it seems like) but considering how people were walking off with boxes of crap at one time, that makes sense I guess.

    Yeah, no prob. If this year is anything like the last, CJ and Bruticus should have a limit of 4, while GI Joe Shockwave will be limited to 1. The GI Joe stuff goes quick.

    ^Well, if I had been able to get a Starscream last year, I would be more excited about Shockwave, but that is a bit more encouraged about Cliffjumper and Bruticus after seeing the limits from last year.

    That is if you're lucky enough to order the high demand items before they evaporate 5 minutes after the order page goes up.


    It is funny (and I guess not surprising) that the items with the lower limits are the ones to sell out more quickly.

    That's fine for those in the US, but HTS won't delivery internationally :( , hence the begging thread.

    Unless you know different, I would be very happy to be wrong about this.

    Lucky? Every time the exclusives come out they're at the shop for at least a month or more. Heck when the sdcc blaster came and went with the convention I was bummed until someone told me about HTS. 3 months after the fact. I bought one and it was still there for another month more.

    Fair enough but there are plenty of international shops that take pre orders for the items. A bit more but when you factor in the cost of someone paying for a ticket to the con, buying the item and shipping it to you it comes out pretty even.

    I don't know much about SDCC exclusives, but have any TF stuff become very hard to find after the initial frenzy? I was always under the impression HTS sells a fair amount.

    I never see botcon stuff there but always see SDCC after the show. Asian exclusives don't show either. It's all stateside I'm guessing, minus the botcon. Also doesn't hts sometimes have hts exclusives?

    Oh I'm sorry I wasn't clear, I was only talking about SDCC exclusive TFs sold at HTS after the show. (Apologies if I'm still missing your point....)

    Off topic, but I've once found SDCC holograph Leia at Target here (there were lots, all had damaged cards) and always wondered how she ended up Down Under in a clerance bin.
