My son is 6 and I'd like to take him, I'm planning on signing him up for the club and using him to get my extras. Any Problems with this approach?
BTW, other details. Coming from FL, planning to drive and stay in off site hotel and arrive Thurs afternoon and leave Sun afternoon.
Many people purchase a second set and sell it to recoup some of their costs. As for piecing it out versus selling it whole, it really depends on you and your potential purchasers. There are usually at least a figure or two that are less desirable than others, so if you sell it piece by piece, you may end up with a figure or two left over that nobody wants to buy. Personally, I would lean towards trying to sell the entire set and only resort to piecing it out of you can't find a buyer for the whole thing.
Any Primus or Minicon or Protoform Package holder can purchase the Add-On figures from the Club Store, so if you get your son a package as well, you will have a chance to buy more of the add-ons. There is usually a limit for how many of each one person can buy initially.
Also, I strongly recommend making your Club Store Add-On purchases Thursday evening immediately following Registration. The line may be horrendous, but many times the more popular Add-On Sets sell out sometime Friday. Shattered Glass 2008 is a great example.
