With SDCC 2012 over, along with the initial after sales of the exclusives, how did you make out?

I am very happy with my haul. The only exclusive I didn't get was Hasbro's Marvel Legends X-Force Box Set. I was initially on the fence, but when I saw pictures I decided I would get it. That didn't happen, but it's not a definitive set and two of the figures are slated to come out at retail in a similar form, so I consider it $49 not spent.

I got all of the Matty exclusives I wanted, which was more than I expected when they were first announced.

I have all of the Marvel Minimates from their various sources; AFX and DST

And that covers everything I had on my list. I wouldn't mind trying to get the Jun Planning Wonder Woman, or last year's Batgirl, and I may consider TRU's Regular Show Mordecai (which I initially had on my list, but doesn't look quite right to me and is currently sold out anyway), but if I get nothing else from SDCC 2012, I would be more than satisfied.

So far ... I've gotten nothing.

I didn't really want all that much though.

The Tiny Titans set is for my son and still available from Matty so I will most likely pick that up once I get my paycheck this weekend.

Looks like I missed out on the Polly Pocket set (unless someone here has an extra they haven't offered up yet) but since they are some weird pre-posed pvc's, I'm not overly concerned if I don't get them.

My son also wants the new Battle Beast Mini-Mates, and we have them pre-ordered from BBTS.

I might try to snag the Batman and Plas bearbricks, but again, if I miss them it won't overly concern me.

The big item I am upset about missing though, is the new DC Collectibles 3.75" figure set. I'm hunting that on ebay now, just trying to get the best possible deal. Hopefully things change and they will find a way to offer up the figures to non-Con-Goers like me.

This year was really a bust as far as exclusives went, I think, in general, as none of the companies really had a "Must Have" item (outside of DCC :wink: )

Thanks to an awesome fellow AFIer, I did pretty well.

Got the Masters of Evil set, the ML X-Force set, the Red Jinx, and the Alpha Flight minimate pack.

I missed Jinx (white) and those super hard to get Lego Super Hero minifigs, but I'm pretty happy overall. I'm still wavering on getting the SuperHelicarrier, but the regular one looks so puny, that I'm not sure I want to plunk down the cash.

Mattel, for the first time in years, had nothing to offer me at SDCC.

I was able to order the Star Wars Jar Jar Carbonite set.

I really wanted a G.I. Joe Jinx, but of course it was sold out. Probably because they only had 10 in stock.

Is DC planning to release the Green Lantern 2 pack to people who weren't able to make SDCC?

I just ordered both Jinxes! Most of the exclusives were back up for sale a little while ago.

I got the Hot Wheels Knight Rider.

I wanted the Regular Show Mordecai but they sold out. However I found a reasonable deal on eBay so I got it that way.

I really wanted the SHIELD helicicarrier but I shouldn't have worried. TRU already has them in stock.

I got the Nosferatu print.
I picked up X-Force for a friend
I got both Jinxes
I got the Shockwave Hiss Tank
Vykron

Hopefully next year is better exclusives. I looked at the Hal Kilowog set, they're ok, but I passed. Then I saw the display that it's all GL stuff, and I'm glad I did.
Thought about Bruticus, but decided to spend my $ on G1 stuff instead:)

Got my SDCC box from Mattel today... The Batman set is neat but I could've done without the lights and sounds, was surprised that they figure and suit are not behind plastic when you open it up (which is good since I had to adjust the suit, the cowl had slipped in behind it). Vykron looks good, going to open at least one of them later tonight to see how the barbarian stuff looks on him. Smacking myself pretty hard because I forgot to order a second Dana so I could display both looks, hopefully she's not too expensive on eBay. Kind of wish I had gotten the other DC stuff now, but...

Oh, and big props to the SDCCer (you know who you are!) who picked up Scarah Screams for me at the con! Got delayed getting to the computer that day and missed out on her, I still need to track down a couple but it's much less than if I'd had to count on getting her from Matty especially after they lowered the limit to 2 at the last minute.

Now if I can just track down Hollywood Jem at a decent price...

With a ginormous assist from JDC8 (thanks buddy! :mrgreen:) I was able to get:

regular Jinx
variant Jinx
ML X-Force set
MU Masters of Evil set

Then via Hasbrotoyshop I was able to get another set of Jinxes for a buddy of mine. I'm a happy camper. :D

I paid a bit more than I wanted for her on ebay (but not excessively so) and finally got the White Jinx, so my SDCC wants are finally complete.

Sigh. Maybe next year I'll finally get another chance to actually GO. :(
