    Wow! Thank you for posting this, Pete! I was able to cancel my BBTS pre-order (which is nice, because I'd like to get at least *one* set at cost, rather than pay eBay prices for them all).

    Er.. I don't think I've even seen pics of these yet. Anyone know what thread they are in? I can't even find them in the frontpaged news stuff. There is a news story that says "stay tuned" but I see no pics :( 

    Cool they will be up on the store. I still have to see them to gauge my interest.

    Looks like there's a reason for me to rejoin the club... still, add to that the cost and it'll probably be cheaper all the way around. Meh... whatever... BBTS' price is actually pretty comparable. Too bad I don't have money right now.

    They were $79 at the con and, if the club does the same as they did in previous years, they will be $79 on the club store + shipping.

    Have a friend bringing me then for pretty cheap but still, that's awesome. Everyone should have a chance to add badass classic figures to their collections

    There's no guarentee the club will sell them for $79. The last time they had a botcon exclusive on the club store (the alpha trion set) it was marked up from the convention price. Given the falling prices on ebay (currently seem to be between $100 and $130), I don't think the markup will be more than $20.

    Does anyone know if the Banzai-tron Skyquake had sold out?

    Really? I didn't remember the Alpha Trion set being all that expensive, relatively speaking. Maybe I'm just thinking in comparison to eBay prices at the time.

    At any rate, incidental evidence seems to point to there being a few hundred Razorclaw sets left; but nothing else. Sweeps are definitely gone and Banzai sets weren't far behind, numbers-wise, on Sat. morning.

    Hmm, I may have jumped the gun a bit. Oh well, If circumstances permit, perhaps I will get a spare set.
