Customs from this show will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis starting at the show opening on Thursday. Rachel (aka Heartbat Studios) will be on hand at the show to meet & greet. Tenacious will also have the factory-painted colorways of Catbat available for purchase alongside the one-off customs (see below):


Rules for the show opening on Thursday: Customers will take a number upon arrival at the booth, and the one-off customs will be sold one per customer at the beginning of the show, with all customers welcome to take another number and get back in line after their first purchase if they wish to make additional purchases of the custom Catbats.

All custom Catbats will stay inside the Tenacious glass cases until the end of the day Thursday to keep the show together, for the enjoyment of all attendees. Customers can return to the Tenacious booth beginning at 5 PM Thursday to pick up their purchases (ID required).


Beginning Friday morning, there will be no limitations on purchases. Customers on Friday, Sat and Sunday may feel free to take their custom Catbats with them immediately or leave them in the Tenacious cases for safekeeping during the day.
