    Yeah, that's a good point. I'm mostly hoping they have a few to sell, BBTS is estimating late October arrival. The same way wheelblade was an Athena rework, I wouldn't be suprised if we get a Ace Hitter rework this year.

    BBTS has him as a late 4th Quarter release. Realistically that means late November at best and late December at worst. In the real world it will be pushed till February or March due to shipping issues.

    Like most businesses - they are at the mercy of the China container ship log jam - I would not be very hopeful on additional exclusives at con unless they arrive day of con. Not a positive notice But - It should honestly have been expected for a month now - if not in last 2 weeks seeing as most retail stores & supermarkets are cleaning out like doomsday.

    I fear that you're right, but the last time they had this in person (2019) they announced stuff (Bulkhead, Pharoah) the day before and the day of. I still have hope.

    Realistically all of the exclusives should have been in country for the last six months so they are positioned to be shipped to the venue. But there is no guarantee that they were using their brains when planning this con. If all we get is one exclusive I will be talking to a event manager about getting a refund for the difference between my premium pass and a weekend pass.

    Two bits of news. The T-Shirts are AWOL from the convention; to be shipped sometime next month. Reply to your email from TFCon if you bought a shirt. And the second exclusive (NOT AN EXCLUSIVE) is R-49 Mentis that I have had pre-ordered from PSX for months now for $89. LAME. They want $125 at the convention. Have to decide if I want two or not.

    Man, I really like that figure but I don't know if I can afford both him and the Pistolonyx at that price. Going to have to do some serious thinking, if there are even going to be any left by the time I get in there on Saturday morning.

    Selling. If you have something any of us are looking for, we might buy or trade, but we are just trying to thin out our personal collections a little bit.

    You know the Baltimore Convention scene is slow when you can reserve parking at the garage closest to the convention center for just $10 the night before

    Its been that way for a decade sadly. Historic Repeated Corruption in the Mayors Office, lack of action maintaining infrastructure & ever growing transient population have truly crushed the inner harbor. Covid was just the icing on top. When you lose a 20+ million dollar annual convention after 16 years due to failing infrastructure & 5 years later still have done nothing, yeah there is absolutely no interest in saving what was left of the city. Was once a historically rich city with a vibe. Now, you treat it like the subway in New York - with a tactical assault team & a will drawn up daily.

    Should be. They were allowing premium ticket holders to get two if they wanted. If they run out I am sure there will be some for sale as side hustles. R19 Mentis was strictly one per person.
