    If you got in to by the SDCC exclusives last year at HTS.com, how did that work.

    Is the sidebar selection that says exclusives where you click?

    And is their any chance of a heads up as to when the toy will be available?

    Thanks for any info you can share. TX

    That is probably speculation based on the fact that that's how it worked last year (they popped up the Monday following SDCC).

    If they're going up at all, they're going up at around 9AM eastern.

    Personally, I don't know if I'm gonna try or not. I usually have an appointment with the inside of my eyelids around that time... And I can get a Nemesis Prime out of Hong Kong for ~$30...

    My only issue with buying from HTS has been that the boxes tend to be pretty banged up and as a MISB collector I've been disappointed with my SDCC 07 Menasor and even the Animated toys I ordered.

    What were the other TF exclusives this year? I might get a NP just for trade bait. For once, I have money at the time to exclusives are available.

    Not literally.

    And I'd rather buy from BBTS and get the item minty-fresh in package than get a loose stolen one from God-knows-who in HK.

    Having gone through the Alt Nemesis Prime debacle on HTS I won't be getting any more SDCC exclusives from them again. I am going to get it from other sources this year... even Ebay is a better option.
