In case you are heading to the San Diego ComiCon this weekend, the show staff are enforcing a raffle only policy on all exclusives. They are doing this for safety reasons.
Retailers are forbidden to sell exclusives on a first come, first serve basis.
They even sent security to booths like NECA to stop them from selling the Hordak and switch it to a raffle.
This policy was announced a couple of days ago but no one actually believed it would happen.
So be prepared for longer lines and angry Con goers.
