    I'm going to play Poison, Van Halen, and Motley Crue as loud as I can to lure in a sweet Knights of Unicron set.

    Only Hasbro exclusive I'm interested in is Jabba which will probably be harder to get than Fett from last year. So yeah.. I'm probably just gonna skip them all.

    As much as I don't want to, I'm gonna try getting things at the Hasbro booth. The ticket system for the lines is the only thing stopping me.

    I plan on trying the HTS crap but is there a set time they would pop up or is it just given as a "sometime between (insert date/time) and (insert date/time)? First time trying this and really hoping to score the Dinobots, hell I would gladly just buy the figures off someone for the cost and they could keep the box.

    Only thing stopping me is the ticket system at SDCC. Otherwise, I'd have them.

    Not much has me excited this year. I like the cardboard setup for the Dinobot set but I can do without the figures. The good news is that the only exclusive is the GI Joe danger at the Docks set which will be on TRU.com which I never had trouble with in regards to the MP releases. HTS anymore is a freakin crap shoot.

    Only really want the Kreo set and the Dinobots, given my schedule and when they usually release I'm just not going to bother.

    Though I'm a Veteran of the last two years worth of SDCC exclusives and have successfully survived the daunting fiasco that is HTS, I'm horribly disappointed by this years offerings and have decided to sit this one out.

    I was really hoping for a IDW themed Metro-Titan/Necrotitan or that new leader class JetFire in a premium clear blue plastic case designed to look like a block of ice that he was trapped in for his G1 début.

    But, nope. Instead, we got some overly eclectic hair metal band crap and some G1 colored Bay-Bots. :rolleyes2  Sure, the ark-themed box they come in is awesome, but at the end of the day it's still just cardboard. And how long is that going to last? Not very long I would wager.

    During the countdown leading up to the exclusives drop I may just drop by the thread to say HI to some friends and to entertain.

    See you all when "the F5 goes live". ;)

    I shall attempt to HTS. I mainly just want the Kreon set, even though the Dinobot set is pretty tempting.

    Not interested with the exclusives. Better to spend that money to buy new Generations stuff instead.
