not wanting to be negative but I think the fact these havent sold out already is quite telling and as well as the fact the club dont tend to revisit stuff will add to the feeling this hasnt been the most successful of convention sets. at the same time from my point of view its the best thing theyve ever done...

Look at it this way TK they didn't sell too well at the con but they certainly will after the con by us fans who couldn't attend.

agreed its the best thing, but the sets never sell out at the con ( except the very first one ) and all past years toys are still for sale in the store, so if this sells out ,,,,,,,,,,,,maybe they will ? or maybe Hasbro will take notice and produce some ( which they have done before when they saw the success of the crismon strike team from the first year ) and if Hasbro Does it, then it will be cheaper!

also I do want to add that the over all response to most of this stuff has been much better than past years.

sorry didnt make myself quite so clear - wasnt referring to the actual set as up until recently they had the dreadnok set for sale which is pretty old but meant the attendee exclusives. Ive never known so many in both qty and variety to be available after the con, basically everything was available except the z bike which was only produced in smaller numbers.

as i say not meaning to be negative but i think using this as a springboard for more con stuff is high unlikely. hasbro doing something is a different proposition as I could see that happening. not while they keep "reinventing" the line as this means there is an ever higher number of core character reissues but maybe if there is ever "stability" to the line...

your probably right, LOL but I can hope !

and actually, if we never get any more stuff from the club or Hasbro, I still feel really lucky, happy, content, and like we accomplished what we set out to do 5 years ago.

cant wait to get my stuff

( oh and didnt the staff car sell out too at the con? I was told it did, doesnt make sense why that did but I was told it did )

Yep, the staff car and the Red Shadows T-Shirt are the only Items I know of that sold out at the con.

Now here's something to ponder over. Is the reason the exclusives didn't sell out due to the characters or the toy parts they used?

My example being the T-Shirt. There were two different con shirts this year, a black Red Shadows one and a green Adventure Team one. The club made more AT shirts than Shad shirts because apparently they can't make an even number of shirts for both versions. (seriously, they told me they always make more of one shirt than the other one) Now if the shirts were selling out because they were con shirts I would assume there would be more AT shirts sold, but from what I understand the Shad shirts lasted a very short time. People in line on Thursday night for Pre-Registration couldn't get them because they were already sold out. And while at the con, I saw at least 5 Shad shirts being worn for every one AT shirt on someone's back.

Now that tells me everyone really liked the Red Shadows (Either that or they all just really like black shirts with skull and crossbones on them :D )

that is interesting, hmmmm makes you wonder, had they used 25th figures to do the Red Shadows would hey have sold out? or the same?

thanks for that interesting bit of info there Shogi.

its really good to know lots of people were wearing the RED SHADOWS shirt, I bet thats something Hasbro couldnt ignore!

You and me both! I went to the con and couldn't even get the shirt. :(

Here's a picture of the shirt. The front has the Red Shadows logo and the back had teh Convention logo (I couldn't find a pic of the actual back, but it's the same as the green AT one so I included that)
