I hate that this year vacation time is so packed that I won't be able to make SDCC again.
Especially with Tron being so close to release. argh!
btw, afaik with limited items like this, they're sold one per person, and the lines can get HUGE! In other words, if you want one, better make sure you're there early early and never leave until you're done.
No one takes risks with things like this, so even if it's NOT that popular, there are still very early lineups. One thing I learned last year, you'll never get the whole experience at SDCC. The only way to be satisfied is to set your eyes on a couple of things, and focus entirely on them. Then if there's extra time, explore a bit
So if you want something, prioritize your goals and go overboard in your effort to get it. hehe

If I'm not mistaken, theres a guy that was part of the SF security distraction team with me that actually designed this. his signature should be part of the design on stitches head.

Wow... people are already preselling these exclusives for a crap load of cash!! Some on ebay are as high as 50 for the lightcycle and 85 for the figure! This is my first year not going in the last 5 so if anyone here is going and can grab me any for a reasonable price pm me to let me know, cuz there is no way I am 10x the price for a five dollar lightcycle.

I've been able to pick up multiples of "limited edition" items before, as long as they're FOR SALE. The freebies, though, are almost always one per person, first come first serve.
That said, I'm sure you can't walk away with a hundred of them. But I've never had a problem picking up two or three of a limited-to-5000 Comic-Con exclusive figure. If you're willing to give them money for it, they're usually happy to take it
No question about the lines though... you've got to decide ahead of time what you absolutely MUST HAVE, and go get it before you do anything else. I'll be jumping on these first thing

SDCC Tron Stuff I have a friend, a nearly life long friend and "Comic Book Guy" who sells every year at SDCC. I work his local Comic shows for free so when I CAN afford to go to SDCC, I get a free Dealers Badge which is the Golden Key to getting exclusives. Sadly, can't afford it this year and fund my two October trips (Halloween Haunt at Knotts and Dallas for a Glass collectors Con) I've already asked them to get me one of the action figures if possible, and God love him, he's never NOT been able to score me the Limited I ask him to hunt down for me. (Skeleanimals, Ralph McQuarry Boba Fett, etc.)
I wish I was going because I would try to get stuff for you guys. If I hear of any other reputable sources for stuff at decent, or non markup prices, I will let you know.
