Malifaux GenCon promos--anyone pick up any they'd like to sell?

I'm finding myself just starting to get sucked into Malifaux. I love skirmish-sized games and it turns out that my wife thinks the theme is good fun, so I've started to pick up some figs here and there to screw around with the system. In the course of that, I stumbled over the "Nightmare" Teddy sculpt released at GenCon this year and I really like it (I think it's a huge improvement over the standard "fat teddy"). What I have no love for is the $90 ebay sellers think it's worth (considering it isn't moving at that price is probably an indication I'm not alone in that sentiment).

Anyone out there have a spare they picked up at GenCon or off of Wyrd's site that they don't need or would like to convert to cash? Although I'm not sure where our tastes will run with this one, "Nightmare Teddy" is the one thing absolutely on my *want* list as I just dig the sculpt. (But, hey, if you don't have that one, feel free to drop a line if you're looking to sell any of the limited-run figs. May be something else that turns me on--or, worse, makes my wife say something along the lines of "OOOOH! SHINY!" ;-) )

(Kudos, by the way, to Wyrd for making those "con-limited" runs available for sale on their website during the con, too. Nice option for folks who don't follow game conventions around like it was Dead tour. I just wish my wife had said "hey, this stuff looks neat" in, say, May, instead of October.)

Those factions are some strange shit.

Heh, my friend is in a similar boat where he actually went to GenCon then later bought into Malifaux. Can't wait to try this out once he gets through his minis.

Yea, that's the thing for me. My wife likes the more "Edward Gorey meets American McGee's Alice"-style stuff while I dig the weird steampunk stuff. And, really, is there anyone who doesn't like S&M-garbed wild west gunslinger women?

It's the "wherever your tastes run" quality to the game, plus the fact that it's stayed pretty dedicated to the skirmish size, that finally got me. I started to get a bit interested in Warmachine but the factions seemed same-ish and it struck me that they were gearing up to head toward Warhammer Army-sized gaming rather than sticking to the smaller scale.
