Just try to ship this sucker from SDCC.

If Hasbro is trying to make that an issue, success!
Between this and the Death Star I never got an opportunity to buy last year, this company does a good job of not taking my money. I have very little hope, I think, of acquiring this given the pain they make it.

I am very pleased after checking out the video. I will get one initially at full price and another when I see a sale of some sort. The AT-TE and Turbo Tank need worthy adversaries to slug it out with.

I won an eBay auction from Canada for $35. Should be here any day.

Looks awesome!

Even more reason for me to pick up the Criterion blu-ray of Anatomy of a Murder later this month.

Don't forget Road House!

And pancreatic cancer, too, same as Swayze. As I wrote on PhGeek.com, somewhere Sam Elliott is getting screened for that terrible cancer.

Can you cite any one of them that was made coming off an appearance in an advertisement?

No, but I can cite aliens which *didn't* appear in movies or can't be found without the use of hi-def freeze frames.  It's not "From the hit commercial!" so much as it is "Here's a point of reference."   We've seen figures based on unused concept designs, (relatively) obscure 1980s comic books, and whatever the heck Jorg Sacul is. When you get right down to it, the bulk of what happens gets made because someone WANTS it to happen.  They don't need an excuse, or even a precedent, half the time.

Apples and bowling balls, Adam. Perhaps you should reread my original post. I'm not arguing we have over 1,800 from varied sources, I said it's doubtful the character(s) appearance here (and if you watched the commercial, you really have to know to look for them) will turn her/them into plastic. I'm all for it, I merely don't think it will happen if we're predicating it on a Superbowl ad.

I think it's a real stretch to try to get figures out of these characters just because they're appearing in an advertisement, but whatever.

Is it any more of a stretch than any of the reasons some of the other 1800+ figures got made? :)

Love the AT-TE, love the Turbo Tank. I will gladly get them again if repainted.

Good stuff last night. Gotta be available online, I would figure. I'll look into it for you.
Latest "Alcatraz" podcast by PhGeek.com, "Kit Nelson," is now available on iTunes and at http://alcatraz.podbean.com/

Totally stocked. Looks like a lot of value.

Well, he's gotta fit in a podracer somehow.

Jorge Garcia is great and we're so glad he's on this show. We've even gotten reaction from him on our podcast. You never know who could show up in the Liveblog tonight...
