At least there is a limit of 2 per customer/household

Do we know if they are doing certain exclusives on certain days or is it some of them all each day? Like are these sets only going to be on (say the 22nd for example) and other exclusives sold on other days or do we have 4 chances to get the exclusive each day?

There will probably be a limit of two, but once you buy two on the 20th, you will probably be blocked from buying any more of them on subsequent days.

Is anyone here planning on ordering sets to put on eBay? I have over $100 in eBay bucks coming in on July 3rd and would rather use them towards a set someone here requested than actual cash if possible.

Anyone planning to get family or friends who live nearby to create accounts and have more shipped to them to get around the limit per household? I did that when they put the Villains set up on their website in order to obtain a total of four sets.

That's kind of a crappy thing to do if you're just doing it to resell it for a profit... I would assume this is what most scalpers probably do. I'm all for helping my fellow turtle fans out, but if I can manage to get a second set it's already spoken for. I was going to barter one off for a commission from an artist who wants one and can't afford it and keep the other one for myself... this is assuming I can even snag two of them in the first place.

Not crappy, I've had several overseas members here request that I obtain this for them.

Because I'm just that much more awesome than the rest of you.

Haha! I was actually told if I had an extra they would do a really cool commission for me in exchange so I'd put up a trade offer if you think its a good idea. I just happen to love the artists work so I jumped on the chance to get a super cool commission from them.

I'm also looking to get a set from a fellow dromer hopefully without a crazy
mark-up.

One thing to keep in mind is in previous NECA website sales they've posted the items a bit early. The comic bad guys set was up 10 minutes early.

If you would sell at cost 200 that's helping someone out but if your gonna take a profit for yourself I agree that's crappy

I'm not saying you do that but that's how others look at it. However I do recall you selling newly released Megabloks figure packs for 20.00 when they cost 10

I have a local regular that I am going to try and scoop up a second one for cause he cant get to a computer during the day, but I wouldnt gouge him. The way I figure it, if Im already on the page and I buy 2 instead of 1, I am not spending any extra effort. I told him he pays any shipping costs, plus the 200 retail which i figure covers my time mashing F5 at noon....

I bought close to 50 Leonardo and Donatello Battle Packs from Mattelshop.com at Christmas time and sold them for twice what I've paid. I've never been a closet re-seller, I've always been honest about what I do.

Point is, if someone in Europe is willing to pay me a high mark-up on one of these, you can bet your @$$ I'm going to get someone else to use their account to order me another set.
