I kind of hope there aren't that many exclusives I don't want so I don't have to stand in line for hours.

Nice.

Haven't collected that many exclusives, but did pick up the 2011 SDCC Stay Puft Marshmallow Man set. This Mars Attacks! bust is something I'll consider ...

If it's not GL, JLA or Godzilla, I'm not standing in line for it.

I'll most likely stand in line if GD puts out some exclusive Green Lantern or Batman Arkham figure. Or if Hasbro makes another pretty cool giant size Sentinel/Galactus figure.

Around the 2:20 mark is information on Hasbro's SDCC Star Wars Exclusive, which includes Jar Jar Binks in carbonite.

+ YouTube Video

5/30 SDCC Voucher Pre-Sale

http://www.mattycollector.com/store/...me/pbPage.News

Quote:
Toy Fans,

SDCC is right around the corner and, as we’ve done since 2010, we’re going to offer a limited amount of products to be pre-ordered here at MattyCollector.com for pick-up at San Diego Comic-Con. It’s first-come, first-served and there are no promises you’ll be able to purchase a voucher for every product. But once you’ve got your voucher, you’re guaranteed to get everything at SDCC!

Here’s how the voucher pre-sale works (please read carefully, because there are important limitations):
Be here at MattyCollector.com on Wednesday May 30th at 9 a.m. PT (noon ET).
Choose the items you want and add them to your cart. There’s a purchase limit of 6 units per person per product, on all products.
Your credit card will be charged and a confirmation email (voucher) will be sent.
To redeem your voucher for the specified products, you must present a printout of the email confirming your order (voucher), along with a photo ID, your 2012 San Diego Comic-Con badge, and the credit card used for this transaction in person on Thursday July 12th, Friday July 13th, or Saturday July 14th from 7 AM – 11 AM or 3 PM – 7 PM in the Torrey Pines room at the Marriot San Diego Hotel and Marina, which is just next door to (and connected to) the San Diego Convention Center.
If you’re only attending San Diego Comic-Con on Sunday July 15th, this option is not available to you.
If you don’t pick up your product by the end of the show on Saturday July 14th, your product will go into the products available for sale at the show on Sunday. You may be able to purchase it then, but there are no guarantees.
The voucher pre-sale ends June 14th at 11:59pm PT, however product is subject to availability so shop early for best selection.

All sales are final. There are NO REFUNDS so be sure you can personally pick up your purchase(s) at SDCC no later than Saturday July 14th.
Products cannot be shipped. This option is for pick up at SDCC only, and only available to SDCC attendees (badges will be required).

I'm hoping those Hot Wheels exclusives are either variants or just exclusive packaging. I'd love to see either of those in regular retail stores. I've got a small collection going of licensed Hot Wheels (Ecto 1, BttF Delorean, bunch of various Batmobiles) but I'm not hooked to the point where I'd actually order them from an on-line source, or look to the secondary market.

The only things I'm interested in are:

Bruce Wayne to Batman™ The Dark Knight Rises™ Movie Masters® Figure
DC Universe DC Comics Vertigo™ Death

But, I won't be standing in a very long line to get them. As I typically do with Mattel SDCC exclusive figures, I'll wait until Sunday when there isn't much of a line and purchase them then if they're available.

If somebody can hook me up with the SDCC exclusive Bruticus set, I can work out a Transformers trade.

Yeah, there's not much DC Superhero stuff that interests me. I suppose that's a good thing.

There isn't anything so far I want at all. Less money I'll spend online.

Remember the days when they tried to wow us? Whatever happened?

Well, perhaps they're tired of dealing with crowd issues. I mean, there are always thousands of people that get very upset when they can't buy a hot exclusive toy.

I've never really grasped the benefit to the company from making a popular convention exclusive. How does that help them? I would think it would just mean the loss of the potential revenue from a wider release in some cases. They can't possibly sell enough of them at the convention to make it seriously worth their while financially, can they? Meanwhile the VAST majority of their potential customers, who couldn't come to the convention (or did, but couldn't get the exclusive) just get annoyed that it was made an exclusive in the first place.

^ Well, I believe back in the day when SDCC wasn't a sold out event, SDCC organizers probably requested companies make a hot exclusive to attract people to attend the event. That's not the case anymore, which is probably why I'm not finding anything that I'm willing to stand in line for or spend money on.
