Blizzard’s pushing a somewhat counter-intuitive offer; Blizzcon attendees can log onto their online store and buy special, Blizzcon-only merch.  Here’s the pitch:

    BlizzCon 48-Hour Sale: Shop Before the Show

    Heading to BlizzCon 2010? Planning to purchase some souvenirs at the show? From October 9 at 10 a.m. Pacific time until October 11 at 9:59 a.m., BlizzCon 2010 ticket holders will have the opportunity to purchase select BlizzCon 2010 store merchandise online (while supplies last). Items purchased through this sale will be shipped directly to your home, giving you more time to take in the panels, tournaments, and other events at the show. To participate, log in to the online Blizzard Store during the sale hours using the Battle.net account provided when you purchased your BlizzCon 2010 ticket (viewable in the buyer’s Order History), and head to the More Products section. A second 48-hour sale for BlizzCon Virtual Ticket purchasers will be taking place beginning October 13—place your order by October 10 to participate.

    Can someone who bought Blizzcon tix through their B.net account log onto the store through the links above, and if there’s any cool Diablo stuff in the moar prodaux section, take a screenshot so the rest of us can see whatzit? or post them in the gallery or whatever works for you.

    The Blizzard store at BlizzCon is always a big draw since they sell stuff that’s not available elsewhere. They actually added a second store at the other end of the hall last year, to alleviate crowding. Most of it’s WoW and SC stuff, of course, but they’ve had some nice Diablo merch as well. We’ll see how that goes this year; perhaps the above link will give us a preview…

    Update: There’s nothing to see on the page, at this point, even if you’re properly logged in. Items for sale will only appear during the sales time, so we can’t find out what’s going to be there… until it’s there. October 9th, 10am PDT.
