Does anyone know if there is a one to one relationship between pass and attendee? In other words can one person with two passes buy double the limit?
Basically the reason why I'm asking is that if I buy an extra pass for someone and give them the money for three of these, will they be able to get three more on top of what they already want to get with their own pass?
If that is possible, I'm willing to buy someone a weekend pass and give them the money to pick me up three of these things (I think the limit for a weekend pass is four).
I think it's definitely going to be do-able Pete, but not necessarily in the same trip. Lots of folks have already suggested they could just buy extra passes to get extra figures, so there's really no way of stopping that, I'd guess. They're monitoring things by punching passes, so if a pass has no punches, it should still be valid. I highly doubt with the thousands of people going through the lines that they're actually going to remember anyones face, and that they've already bought their full allotment of four.
I just don't think they're gonna let anyone walk up there and show them two separate passes at once and get multiple figures though. I think it'll require just a little more tact than that. Buy up your figures with one pass, then return later on (preferably to a different table with a different person) and then buy some more with your second pass (with your first pass obviously stashed away somewhere). They obviously are trying their best to keep folks from taking advantage of the situation like last year, so I think if you're sly about it and make two totally separate trips to get the figures, you should be fine.
Of course, that would mean someone would likely have to spend anywhere from 15 minutes to several hours waiting in line just to score some extra figures for someone, which would obviously suck. But I just highly doubt they'll honor two separate badges in one trip, so I think multiple trips through the line would be in order.
And that goes back to the question I asked here a couple weeks ago, which was whether a 4-day pass holder could just get all 4 of their figures at once, or if they'll keep it limited to no more than one per day... Sounds like we can at least nab all 4 together, to save ourselves from wasting too much time in the figure line, and enable ourselves to waste our valuable time in other lines instead.
