It says August 13th right on the page.
Damn. They are getting serious. I forget, were they this specific last year too?
I'm not sleeping at all Thursday night.
To save you some sleep time, it's 8/13, a Monday. I'm afraid that you wrongfully take it as 7/13 instead.
I agree that it should be 1 per person. Basically Nobody is buying these for their kids. So get those dumb thoughts out of here. These ARE collector\'s items. Plain and simple. 1 per person would give everyone a much more fair shot at getting one. I would wager that 90% of the \"second\" purchases are people looking to resale.
I was prepared to go Thunderdome on HTS on 7/13 through SDCC time, Prime Day, Predaking, etc.
August 13 helps spaces out the mayhem and devastation on one's wallet.
I think 1 to open and one to keep is fair and I do have two kids and one of them wants this
Use the wife's info for the second one, or a friend.
Someone is doing their job
I actually think them advertising the date makes it worse. Now everyone is going to flood the site at the same time and either the site will crash and/ or the exclusives will sell out within minutes
August 13? That's too long for me to wait. I pray the site can hold up and that I'm able to get one, last year and all the times I can remember, the one item I've wanted usually sells out as soon as I click on it
Does anyone know what the SDCC TF TCG pack will cost?
I can wait till than, no rush.
Then your son will just have to miss out so more neck-beards can get one
I'm not sure it really matters that much in the age of twitter/facebook/cellphones.
^It could mean the difference between 5 minutes and 1 hour
We now know that the sdcc Throne is 69.99, many of the online sellers are selling through retail Op Op for 64.99 plus tax and shipping for a total around 74.99, that would make the retail version MORE expensive than the retail release ! Granted TFsource has him for 54.99 plus tax and shipping and EE has him at retail for 49.99 however EE won't have him till October and TF not til Aug. How Do you guys feel about the 64.99 for the retail?
Well the fact that phone orders aren\'t accepted might give an edge...
I'm thankful for the two per person limit. I'm on vacation that week and will have no internet access. A friend is going to attempt for us. So while I understand the notion of anti scalping in this instance I'm content with the limit. Now I just hope they have enough stock.
I think this one is still a bit more expensive. Depending on the site, most don't charge me tax. HTS definitely does and that's about $8 plus shipping (I don't think the exclusives qualify for free shipping do they?).
Either way I'm hoping to get this set over the retail. Dig the colors.
If both items somehow wind up on HTS eBay and then later discounted, that might sting a bit.
Primal's about what I thought it would be. Just have to hope it's plentiful enough I can get an order without setting an alarm at 2 am.
