After 48 hours of availability, the BotCon Convention sets are over 60% sold-out!
We increased production numbers significantly from last year.
Even so, the demand for this year's set is out pacing last year.
Don't delay in getting your order to us.
Watch for pictures of Scourge next week!
Also note that the Thursday class is now sold out.
This set is selling at a ridiculously faster rate than last years "Shattered Glass" set. If you want to get this set, better make preparations fast.

I'm bummed out that I couldn't get the customizing class. Wednesday is still open, but I can't do that day. At least I was able to fax in my requests for 2 Primus packages. 1 for me and one for my Dad!
When do they do the panels and announce all the upcoming goodies? I know about the dealer room, but apart from that I couldn't see anything that said when various panels would be up.
Thanks for the correction. That's what I thought it was.

Last year all over again for me.
It's hard for me, too. But I think I'm gonna fax it in and wrangle some cash over the next few days before they process it. They usually take a few days to do that/
Anyone want to buy a kidney?

Having been to the last 2 Botcons I'd say it is both. They unfortunately let people get multiple primus packages so I saw certain dealers carrying around 10+.

I really, really, really, really, really hope it doesn't sell out by next Tuesday. If I'm gonna go, I assume I need to have the money when I fax in the app for it, and that's why I need to wait until Tuesday to do it. Not concerned about airfare (because I can buy that nearer to the actual event I think, as long as I plan ahead) and the room I'll need (shouldn't have to pay for that until I actually go, right?)... I just don't have the money to set all of it up right this second.
