    Right now, if there’s gonna be a Hasbro panel during this, that they reveal Studio Series Leadfoot and finish off the DOTM Wrecker Brothers

    Sounds fun, but... What about the scalpers??? :( 

    All those guys buying exclusives because it's their right to profit off the hard work of the toy makers and the quiet desperation of poor collectors. How will they get to d*ck us out of exclusives now? :) 

    In all seriousness, it sounds like a disaster when fans compete globally for exclusives. If they do a virtual lottery, expect to see hundreds/thousands scalping virtual tickets, too! Ughh....

    But let's be more constructive: I think mini-events for small groups. Take a small set of fans and put them in chatroom, where they can meet guests, compete for prizes, answer trivia, get special reveals, etc.

    Like mini panels. Because massive podcasts will not have the same punch, imo.

    If they want to make getting exclusive fair, they should make it ONE type of exclusive per physical address.  That way more people will be able to have a chance to get one and not have scalpers grab them all.  That is my suggestion.

    It's the 40th anniversary of Empire Strikes Back. I guarantee you there will be a Boba Fett exclusive.

    That was last year. And That was a nightmare to obtain. Which is why I didn't want to go though CPR again.

    Technically, the actual 40th anniversary is this year. No idea why they didn't save that Boba Fett for this year. I really wouldn't be surprised if it is related to Mandalorians, bet it Boba or Din.

    If it were that Mandalorian, that would be worst.

    Sweet. The first time I went the first footage of Batman Begins was shown to a bunch of impatient jerks. There were no long lines or camping. My girl and I just waltzed in and saw the footage. It was awesome. Now not so much.

    If everyone can buy the exclusives, they may be even more difficult to get, everyone all over the world online at the same time? Everyone clicking buy? I hope more stock is made to accommodate but that's wishful thinking

    Anyone know if you need to register online? I know it\'s free to participate, but all of the virtual cons I\'ve seen so far have required participants to register for a free online pass.

    Now watch as making the exclusive figure available to everyone actually just means making the figure available to everyone who just so happens to live in North America. I always have to buy SDCC exclusives for jacked up prices on eBay, and I bet this year will be no different.

    Well, I mean you could just uproot your entire life and move to the USA. Makes buying toys easier.

    I laugh because it was a reasonably big part of the reason I moved here :D

    Well....I kind of expected with this crazy year we've had that San Diego would get the axe...and while it does suck....I'll just be a blunt one and say you're either got the budget or you live near San Diego to get there....I don't mean to sound like a dick...but this whole deal with the exclusives (that I shit you not are being sold in BBTS right now....which is odd for me to see but OK I guess)...At best some of the reveals might be interesting....I'll probably hold my odd prediction for another thread but for now...lets see what we're gonna get next year...

    That’s good news, especially if it means that we can actually watch the panels to see upcoming products without having to resign ourselves to grainy photos
