    Wasn't able to get neither Bruticus or Cliffjumper today. Anyone know what they had in stock at 7pm tonight?

    Not sure how Hasbro is doing it this year, since companies change year to year, but many of the companies at SDCC will set aside a certain amount of stock per day: they will sell a certain number of an item on Thursday, a certain number on Friday, and so on. If Hasbro does this, then if they were sold out of Cliffjumper and Bruticus on Thursday, they may still have some set aside for Friday. Many companies do that so that people who come for only one day don't get the short end of the stick. Hopefully Hasbro is doing that this year, so that one day attendees get a chance to buy stuff they want.

    With that said - I have noticed that Hasbro is typically sold out of their hottest items by Friday, so I don't' think that they do that. In talking to Hasbro folks, they will run out of stock on the floor during the convention, and have to get more stuff from their warehouse to bring down to the convention floor, so there will be periods when the booth is out of stock, but then is able to re-stock again. I think they are only able to re-stock a few times before running out completely. If you get to the counters during a time when they are temporarily out of stock, they will tell you to try coming back later to see if they have the item you want back in stock. In that case, you'll have to go through the line again. Good luck man.
