The guys behind the scenes at the Canadian JoeCon have been working long and hard to get things ready for the 2012 Canadian JoeCon, but unfortunately some bad news to report today. Due to cost considerations the proposed second vehicle for the Convention Set has been dropped.
Price quotes came out way above expectations, and for that reason, the convention set this year will not include a second vehicle.
The full details are below, courtesy of JoeCanuck.com:
“Due to unforeseen circumstances outside our control, we will be unable to offer the 2nd smaller vehicle for our 2012 Convention set by the convention date. As a result, sets will now cost $175. Those that have pre-ordered a con set will be given a $5.00 refund at the convention upon pick up of your set, or a full refund of your purchase should you wish to cancel your pre-order. The 2nd vehicle was originally projected to cost $5.00 to produce, and was a last minute addition to the set with no increase to the cost. Final costs came back MUCH higher however, and we had to pull it. We will elaborate more on this during the Staff Q&A at the convention, however we can not go into the details of it at the current time.
Sorry for the inconvenience.
– CJC Staff”
While this is a bummer, the set looks pretty impressive as it stands.
