YATTA! that was way faster than I thought it would be!!!

Nuttin' yet for me, but fingers crossed. Seems like it took about three weeks to start sending them in previous years. Good show, FP.

There they go using those time travel postal services...

I didn't get a notification yet, but good to know they're sending them out now!

No notification for me yet, either, but I didn't order until about the time of the Great Site Crash of 2012.

Nothing yet on my end, but if it follows the route Drift and Runamuck did, probably I should get a notification next Monday-Wednesday.

The one benefit of Botcon being right next door to FunPub.

Mine showed up last year without a shipping notice at all. Keep an eye out

What were the prices for the non-attendee sets, and the process associated with preordering them before botcon?

I always thought the only way to get Botcon exclusives was to buy them at the show yourself, or pay secondary market prices on websites/eBay.

same here,
im a bit curious as to why so many people got theres and the same amount didnt get there notice, considering when they posted up the non-att. form i was literally watching there site so i know i paid for mine pretty early in the game.

maybe it has to do with the type of shipping that was chosen?
Kaijumaster
I'm hoping to get my box set by next week at the latest, really want me Magnus & Treadshot.

^nice!

IMHO the standouts for me from the set are, according to order of awesomeness:

1) Gigatron - dat color scheme and head-sculpt!
2) SG Ultra Magnus (Powered Convoy homage colors. you know a super armor add-on is coming!
3) SG Tracks/ Threadshot = tie!
4) SG Soundwave = headband-gate and weak mould usage. sigh..
5) Metalhawk- no new weapons and a weak head-sculpt kills it for me.

Got my email notice today, looking forward to getting it sometime this week!
Ikkstakk
Shipping notice received about an hour ago.
Kaijumaster

Ikkstakk
^ Well, I just tracked my set and it's supposed to be delivered today. So I think this is two days after I got the email notice.
