    Free deluxes for the first 150 under 12s in the walk-ins! Very cool idea IMO. Full press release sent to us by Botcon below:

    I'm still patiently waiting to see which guests will appear on which days. Too bad I'm not old enough to be considered an adult and older than the consideration for children XD

    So much for my sweet 16 :lol

    I wonder if it's all those deluxe DotM, P-FE, and PRiD Bumblebees that were on store shelves?

    :lol

    Free toys have been given to kids in line in the past (I actually was the volunteer who did this one of the days in 2011. A couple even got Windchargers before they were showing up at Ross, et al), but this may be the first time they've been specifically announced beforehand, much less as deluxes.

    That's awesome.

    Too bad I'm 19 going on 20 nor do I know anyone at that young age nor am I going to BotCon this year.

    When they say early ....we're talking lining up at 5 am

    I was there in 2009 and waited in the general admission line on Saturday for over FOUR hours.

    Don't feed the beast. Today's Deluxes aren't even worth their regular price let alone the price of admission.

    Aren't you guaranteeing yourself at least four hours by being there... well... more than that many hours before anything opens? (I double checked, and regular general admission on Saturday is at 10:00 am. Early Bird opens at 9:00, but that's $60)

    I mean, sure, that means you don't miss out on as much, but you haven't lessened the wait at all.

    General admission for children is only $10. Less than the current cost of today's deluxes.

    No free toy is worth standing in line for four hours.

    For those who didn't know, or thought it will be a movie toy:

    The free toy was TFSS Jackpot. I asked the people giving them away, the confirmed that. Not a bad toy for a giveaway. Too bad only kids got it. (Also the line barely took an hour if you got there at 9:20)

    Thought you might wanted to know since i didn't see this posted.

    Not if you're a kid. I once stood in line that long to get a happy meal toy from McDonald's at a new years fest when I was 9
