Counterpunch brings us the news that the Botcon website has been updated and it states that all loose sets have been accounted for as well.

www.botcon.com/

We knew it had to happen. Once all of the boxed sets were sold out, it was only a matter of time before all of the loose sets went as well.

We'll keep you posted when any more news comes out regarding what is sure to be a HUGE Transformers fan event this summer!

I think this may have been the first time that even the loose sets went before the con happened. Glad I got a box set with my registration! :D

Hmm. The chances of my wangling an extra loose set for some friends on the Hub just took a nosedive. Ah well.

Botcon is going to be MAAAD.

Wow! All I can say is wow! :shock:

I am beyond glad that I splurged and got myself the non-attending package so I could have a box set. Quite frankly I'm not really suprised. As a fandom and fanbase we have absolutely loved the Classics for one simple reason. They went back to basics for Transformers but with today's engineering and beloved characters from our childhood for alot of us at least.

Us fans were begging Hasbro to do the remaining seekers as far as Thrust, Dirge and Thundercracker were concerned. Is it no suprise that despite the outrage and anger from fans concerning the price and exclusivity that the set, both boxed and loose, is sold out? Come on, no one can say they're suprised.

One thing is for sure. The after market Ebay prices (or going bids) will be absolutely crazy!

Just more proof this it was a bad idea to make these guys a Botcon set. They are in such demand that they are all gone before the show opens. They should have been made for the general public Hasblow.

Not surprised, what with all the extra attention Transformers is receiving at the moment, Botcon will be crazy for the next few years.

Also means many people will be flogging these off on ebay for even crazier prices than usual.

they should make more sets.... when we cook dinner for people, we'd rather see leftovers than none. that way we know everyone had enough.

The BOXED sets that you could get by attending or through the non-attendee Iacon package sold out a while ago...these are the extra loose sets that you can get once you've already purchased a boxed set, I believe...

And I've never been happier to see $279 charged to a credit card in my life. :)

Wow! I'm glad I got my box set in before they sold out(last day as well). Now this, is this the first time a set ever completely sold out? I never had a chance to get to a Botcon before. I'm thinking maybe next year.

Man, I am so tired of hearing the wah wah wah of people who didn't step up. If you didn't buy it when it was available, guess what? There's only you to blame. These would never have been available for sale any other way. Think otherwise? Well rock on with your conspiracy theories then. Just do it quietly so the rest of us don't have to listen to the whining. Why is it that every time Botcon rolls around people have to bitch about the availablity of the figures? It's been the same way for over ten years. Let it go man.

F****** scalpers. Couldn't they have limited it to one per person to avoid this type of thievery?

If I had money coming out of my ears, I'dve bought at set.
Sadly, I have a life, so you know...

TBH I would'a thought they'd sold out long before now.

Nice to hear that the exclusives are selling. That's definitly a positive for FP.

Much be hard for some...to actually have a life and pay for con exclusives. Whoa. I can't believe we only had a year's notice of when Botcon was.

Good thing I have paid for mine. Paying for my room up at RI. Going to the Beach for a week. Hittin Baltimore for a rave. Going to NY to catch the Rock the Bells tour. Paying for that hotel room. Life's just not fair. I hate how we actually have to pay for things we actually want in life.
