    The story goes thus:

    I registered for the Primus package and will be at Botcon Fri-Sun. Because I live in san Francisco and have to work 'til four on Thursday, I won't be able to pick-up my package or buy the souvenirs until Friday. I'm driving down Thursday night, and will be in line very early friday morning.

    Do you think the alleged troop builder set will sell out before Friday morning?

    It would really blow to have paid so much and made so many plans to come, just to walk away with an incomplete set.

    I don't think so. If memory serves correctly, they usually state that the souvenir packages are produced so every Primus Package will at least get one. After Friday is when they start letting people buy doubles and Friday night or Saturday morning is when we start hearing of souvenir sets selling out.

    If they follow past years (and I see no reason they would not this year, except for maybe making slightly more due to the popularity of this years set) the preceding statement is correct.

    Yes, but it usually sells out pretty early on Friday morning

    Okay, thanks guys- you've made me feel a lot better!

    Early Friday morning is no problem, I'll be milling around the convention center by 8 am, in line or ready to start one.
