2018 SDCC Exclusives: General Chat

Forum Housekeeping:

Happy Holidays!

Please use this thread to begin discussion of 2018 SDCC Exclusives. "2018 SDCC Exclusives [specific company name]" threads will branch off from this one for easy reference as warranted by increased chatter, press releases & reveals. Have at it!

Hello,

I have a really basic question regarding exclusives. How do you get the chance to purchase them. Is there a thread I can read? I have never done this at comic con and maybe will add this to my experience this year.

Thanks!

This whole section will have discussions on the many exclusives. Some companies have you go to Sails in the morning for tickets, or a lottery. Some will have exclusives at their booths. Watch this space, and there will be tips. If you see something you are interested in, ask questions (although, we don’t tend to discuss line up times).
All that being said, things are a little up in the air because of the addition of the exclusives portal. We don’t know what companies, if any, will participate, and how it will work. The general chat or the portal thread will probably be the best place for that discussion. (and don’t worry, it will be discussed in detail! 🤣)

Which vendors are having Sails tickets this year? I assume Hasbro, but Funko is not the same this year. Someone post the list here when available.
Thanks to all and see you at SDCC 2018!

Great question, may a future Toucan post or Exclusives area update soon provide the answer.

Hmm What?  I thought AzT and SamTurtledove were actually robots who never eat, drink or sleep.

They are actual human beings and they find the time to do all this for us? 

Yes indeed!  TRIPLE SHOUT OUT!   8)

Everyone else get the email from CCI for the exclusives?  The portal was a bit on the empty side on my browser but it was interesting to see who is participating so far and will be to see how well this actually manages to turn out ~

I got it too...looks like Hasbro, Funko, UCC and Lego are all participating in this onsite lottery thing so far...although they did say more are coming.

It also looks like it is just a lottery for the purchasing time slots.  Not the actual exclusives themselves.

Madness. Will be interesting to see how this plays out. If your 1pm buying slot runs long (I expect many will) will your 2pm slot accept you at 3pm?
