    I know I'm excited to be getting one of these add-on kits, I've wanted a new PM Prime since Classics debuted in 2006. Now everyone has access to Vector Zeta armor without having to make the trip!

    From the Convention Website:

    "There has been a lot of interest in our exclusive for Slagacon 2011, the Vector Zeta armor set, and we thank everyone who’s purchased one so far. One of the most common requests we’ve seen, both here and on TF fan boards across the ‘net, is the desire for a non-attendee package. After much deliberation, we’ve decided to open up Vector Zeta to the general public.

    Here’s how it will work:

    On the “Pre-registration” page will be a new category, “Non-Attendee”. This is where you’ll be able to order the Vector Zeta armor. A non-attendee set will run $190 + shipping & handling. Shipping will be via USPS using Flat Rate Priority Mail, and includes insurance and delivery confirmation (where available).

    All non-attendee packages will be mailed out shortly after the convention in October. If you’ve already ordered a Vector Zeta armor set along with the Attendee package, and aren’t able to make it to the convention, we’ll contact you after the convention to arrange for shipping/handling payment.

    We thank you for having patience with us as we work through our growing pains. We hope to see you at Slagaon 2011!"

    Some who have not heard of Vector Zeta will want to see it here. This pic is hosted by TFW2005, so I believe I am okay linking it here. If not, mods please take it down. Thanks!

    How about some front page love for this one? There is a watermelon that made it. This is much bigger than that!

    If they are only going to make 100 sets, then the non-attendee package may sell out too quickly.

    This is still just the basic armor, without the Apex armor correct?

    If so...that's too much for just a partial armor set, IMO.

    Too expensive for me for what it is. Also looks incomplete.

    Yes, the Apex armor will come out next year. No word on whether or not it will also combine into Godbomber, but my guess is no.

    While the armor is a bit pricey, it is extremely limited. Considering that armor with much wider releases sells for a ton more (Scyther armor, anyone?) I think it will hold its value.

    Just playing around in the cart, it appears that only 24 of the 100 Vector Zetas are left.

    We actually have more than that, spread across Attendee, Non-Attendee, and Dealer. Also apparently we had an issue with the inventory database, where VZ's put in the cart but not purchased where not being released back into inventory, so we actually showed as Sold Out for while. But we got it all cleared up, so we're good for now.

    I can get a Powered Commander armor for around the same price or a DIA Commander set for about $130.

    No thanks.
