    Same here, I feel sad that those exclusives are the seekers. But It won't dictate my life, as I got movie toys to look forward too.

    *Grabs the peace pipe off KA*

    Yeah, I'm in the same hemisphere as you. Sure as hell can't attend. The club is a giant ripoff for international fans and I don't really want to pay $200 - $300 for 3 seekers. Ah well, life goes on. EXCEPT FOR MINE.

    Funny I didn't mind spending 100+ for a single toy recently...why not 200+ for the Seekers? I think I am getting close to the bottom of my problem.
    Really, I am sure some fo you guys don't hesitate spending that much for a TF. What's stopping you? Please share. This is the place for that.

    My breath is so fresh... and only 2 calories each!

    Yeah I still want Botcon seekers. Or should I say RIPOFFCON seekers? No I shouldn't, because that is a mean thing to say and I like the guys at FP.

    They do non attendee packages.... and if you don't have a credit card, they take money orders.

    actually, at this point, the only thing stopping me from buying it is the absence of a credit card.

    how ironic! i am being thwarted from my plastic craving...by plastic!

    I made a credit card to get paypal. Since then I am going downhill.
    But seriously, how much is the non attendee package?

    $369 including international shipping. I doubt they send these things out with anything less than their full value declared for insurance, so factor in import tax too.

    Tax here is 10% of full value of the parcel (contents+ shipping) PLUS 15% of the content's value, I think.

    I must pass up. I must.

    I would just like Thrust. I always wanted a Thrust as a kid, and now to be denied one as an adult because it's a 'con exclusive... but then I was also bitter the Ironhide and Ratchet repaints last year, two of my favourite bot characters, were also 'con exclusives... so this is growing to be a common thing.

    I think I'm just going to stop reading stuff about the cons.

    Sir, I admire your courage/wallet.
    If you didn't tell me I wouldn't have known about the set...I normally don't pay much attention to Botcon sets :lol
