Title: 2012 CJC WebStore now online!
Post by: THE Mike™ on July 10, 2012, 08:36:25 AM
Pre-orders for the 2012 Convention sets will be available at the Canadian Joe Con Web-store (www.joecanuck.com/cjc/ (http://www.joecanuck.com/cjc/)) tonight at 7pm EST.

Currently the web-store has T-Shirts, Trading Cards and Comic Books available for purchase. We strongly suggest if you're interested in these items to go order them now, and come back at 7pm for the con set on a separate order. The site will be hit pretty hard when 7pm arrives, and you don't want to miss out on the set because you were adding a T-Shirt for your
Uncle Bob!

For more information on the Canadian G.I. Joe Convention, please visit www.canadianjoecon.com (http://www.canadianjoecon.com)

Just made an order.  Got a question:  are there going to be trading cards this year?  I have the full set so far and would love to be able to order any from this year.  Thanks for making the comic available (got all those so far too).

For those who miss the preorder for the con set, but have preordered their convention ticket, would they have priority / first crack at the con set on Saturday morning? Is there going to be a separate line up for those who have preordered con tickets?

Plenty of time to explain that as we get closer to the date.
However, having a ticket does not guarantee you a con set.

I love how the T-shirts are available in different colors this year! Am I intepretting the images correctly that they are not "2012"-specific this year?

With the pre-order clock ticking down, is there a board posting minimum that a person has to have met in order to pre-order the con set (toys)? And if so, what is that minimum number? Just want to know whether I'm eligible.

Thanks,

Blitzkrieg

How many sets are up for grabs tonight? 25? 50?
Title: Re: 2012 CJC WebStore now online!
Post by: THE Mike™ on July 10, 2012, 02:00:44 PM
As previously mentioned only 25 are up tonight. I had considered allowing more - then, obviously decided not.

Got my set (it will be my first CanJoeCon set). Thanks for the preorder opportunity!

A couple hiccups stating the resources were full or something, but made it though in about 4 minutes.

Edit: Wow, are they gone already? I redirected back to the store site after payment and checked the exclusives page out of curiosity and there is nothing available on the page!

Question: Can I order another set for a friend? Although I suspect they may sell out before I get an answer...lol!

Hyped!

I got my set too! Woohoo! No sleeping on the sidewalk this year!  ;D

Thanks THE Mike for allowing us to pre-order in this manner! This process was SO MUCH smoother than friggin' HTS (never got my Zarana)!

Is there a chance that you could post the description of the set as seen on the online store? I scrambled so quickly to make sure that I secured the set sitting in my cart, I could only lightly skim it.

See y'all in 30!

Thanks for allowing the pre-order, this makes it much easier to bring the whole family to the CJC.  I missed out on the pre-order last year, so I'm really happy.

Good point! When I asked my wife to come with me last year at 5am she looked at me sideways. Much easier to get her to come at the more reasonable 9am or thereabouts.

So if the Exclusive section is empty, do we now wait in line or are the sets sold out?

Generally you have to wait.  Unless there is a noted author exception.........

the noted author bit never gets me anywhere.  I try to stick with the "I have cash in hand" bit.

Only 25 of the 125 sets were available for pre-order, so there will be (roughly) 100 sets available for those standing in line.

Same for me, too.  I can "pre-order" a copy if that's easier for you.

I tried to access your site but was unable to do so. are there any of the 2012 canadian joecon exclusive sets still available? i got one from you last year and would like to repeat my business. Thanks.

The webstore is now shut down until after the convention.
Sets were available for pre-order in limited quantities - they sold out in 6 minutes.

Sets are still available at the convention on a first come basis.

Anyone that didn't make it to the con and still wants a box set, there is a few at the on line store.

I'm just proud that it was my picture from my Ebay auction that was used to display the convention set.  ;)

I love my new Canon camera.
