    So what time should I get up and get ready to keep hitting refresh? I'm sure it's gonna be fast and not too fun...

    They're not getting Rodimus, though, right?

    No, they should be getting Ultimate Prime, Zarana from the 'Joes, and Prime Deluxe Prime in Matrix packaging. Oh, and the GI Joe jet painted like Starscream.

    Okay. Already got Rodimus on the way. Might want Prime Prime. Starscream Sky Striker is tempting.

    Look for them around noon Eastern, and expect the site to crash about that time, too.

    What I hope to get: Starscream Skystriker and both versions of Zarana.
    What I expect to get: Disappointment.

    I'm skipping the Transformers exclusives this year (unless you count the Skystriker as a Transformers item) because they don't interest me. My brother will log onto my account and try to get them and I will probably come home at lunch to see if he has and if not try myself. My luck with G.I. Joe SDCC exclusives are worse than with Transformers so hope is kind of low right now.

    starscream was easily the most popular hts toy at the con, i saw him everywhere,
    our dream of mixing franchises turns in to a nightmare when you have two fandoms fighting for limited quantity items

    Mostly, I want Zarana, and both versions if possible. However, I find that the GI Joe exclusives are terribly limited and bought up before they ever even say in stock. Sgt. Slaughter, I'm looking at you.

    Should we just refresh the Home Page? And is there any chance that TRU.com might have some more Rodimi pop up since SDCC is over?

    Just to let you guys know, that the codes are not stackable.

    Thx a bunch. Hope to snag me a Starscream Skystriker and both Zaranas but I expect it to be almost impossible. You'd hope they would learn from the Slaughter debacle but I doubt it.

    SDCC exclusives is the stupidest idea ever. Botcon I get. Joecon I get. Everythingcon? Retarded.

    SDCC is the largest con of it's kind in the US. Other than the rant, please tell us why it's stupid.

    I'm not even going to bother. I've noticed the trend with SDCC exclusives. They devalue in a couple years. I can wait.
