    or yah know, just another exhibitor who gets to witness the insanity that hits hasbro's booth every year and talk to their workers during the show about how things are going for them.

    So believe me or not, I'm just relaying what they told me during the show. I got my Kre-o set and that's all I was really after. It did appear that they had a lot more inventory this year vs 2013 as everything but Magic set and Angry Birds/TF shirt were available on Sunday morning. By lunch the usual suspects were sold out, even the Kre-o.

    Yeah, you actually have an easier time getting the exclusives than buying a ticket. This isn't like going on ticketmaster!!

    I thought I was gonna stick through till the end, but this is getting boring now... The long anticipation is starting to get replaced with boredom, and if they don't go up by Friday, I say screw it... Lol

    Called my comic shop. They got all the exclusives EXCEPT the Thanos Imperative set, which of course is the only thing Im after. Wonderful. Guess I'm here until the end.

    Man! This is taking forever. Do you guys think that HTS has to count more inventory that didn't sell at the convention? HTS has to get their "ducks in a row" before they post the SDCC exclusives?

    Never saw abusing Magic fans as a sin personally.


    Disappointed he hasn't put another dinobot set up, I just convinced myself its worth it when he sold the last one.

    So close to buying the kreon set off the bay for $105 shipped. At that price it's still only $3.50 per kreon.

    What if we are all reading this wrong and the reason it isn't up is because they sold them all out already? Or a dealer black marketed them off the truck on its way back.

    I love how I can come back after a few hours and read the latest chapters of "Frustration Rising"

    Ooooohhhhh........Now I need to go modify a Beast Hunters screengrab. "SDCC Hunters: Frustration Rising". How appropriate!

    $3.50 is less than the the blind-bagged kreons SRP. No wonder these sold out at SDCC when it was even less there.

    :lol  agreed


    I'm trying to remember how many Crossover sets he sold last year but I think it was in the 20s. I'm sure he has more Dinos, but that is a pricier set so you never know.

    Funny enough all that made me think is "Where's G1 colored Slash and Scorn?" to go with this set..
