Yesss!!! Just got confirmation from my proxy out at SDCC that she was able to score this for me tonight!

Sort of takes the excitement out of sweating out the inevitable HTS debacle, but yeah, that's cool.  :D

Definitely need a new display area though, between this and the upcoming Biker Scout, we're talking a whole new dedicated shelf.

Hmm, well we already saw both of these ships, and the figures appear to be identical to the single carded release, so I can't get but so excited about this. Still I love that we are getting new ships again and will certainly be buying both of these. Please get to work on The Ghost though!  :)

SDCC Skybound exclusive Ezekiel figure(s) should be going up for sale at some point soon at their website if anyone is interested...I guess they will announce via Twitter when sales are open. This is one of the few SDCC exclusives I didn't preorder this year, so I will be watching this closely. Good luck to all!

I was just able to order the SDCC Exclusive "Ending Credits" Jaeger set from NECA's website. Cost plus $13 shipping, best deal I ever got on an SDCC exclusive.

Now I kinda wish I hadn't predordered one for $85, but who knows if my seller will even be able to get one out there. And if so I'm pretty sure I can get my money back for the other one off the secondary market.

Scunner arrived today from too!

If these schmoes have the nerve to show their faces at SDCC, someone please ask us where the hell the rest of the dwarves, Beorn, the Bard, and $%^&* Smaug are.

Seriously, if Super 7 can find a way to get those playsets out, and that Kickstarter campaign for the Chthulu figures was such a runaway success, there is no way they can't find a way to get these into our hands.

This news about Hot Toys doing smaller scale SW figures has me intrigued. They are the gold standard in the industry IMO.

Ahhh, right. I guess I was thinking of Neca, Skybound, etc. Their stuff always goes up while the con is running.

That's actually good, I should definitely know by then if the one I pre-ordered is going to come through.

Cool, I thought i heard something about that. Are Boba and the Stormy still the other 2 in this case?

Let the F5'ing at HTS commence!  ;D

Spent some time looking through the new gallery at Hasbro's SDCC booth:

Chewbacca looks better than first glance, looks like the only potential trouble spot is the paint bleed around the teeth. Good rendition though.

Anakin looks as bad, if not worse, than previous photos indicated. That neck joint is atrocious, plus the hair is all wrong and really doesn't like all that much like him, IMHO. This is by far my least favorite figure in the line so far.

Vader - finally a shot with the helmet on! This is a nice effort, except for 3 small but irritating things: 1) No neck, 2) Red eyes?!? 3) That lower, inner cape - why is it so hard for them to display this correctly?

Clone Trooper came out pretty well, kinda boring to me but no glaring deficiencies.

10/15?!?! Yikes, that is a lot later than first anticipated.

I see a lot of guys over at RS jumping on pre-orders, but we have like 150 Walgreen's in this town and I just don't see this being that hard to find.

Nice to have confirmation on the $19.99 price tag though.

I see the price on the Simpsons House has come down a bit on Amazon, pretty sure that will be my next big purchase. :)

Mods, please feel free to move or delete this if there is a duplicate thread out there...I looked for one but couldn't find it any of the the usual forums.

Seems like a pretty low buzz for SDCC this year. I gues the past few years' disappointments have level set expectations somewhat.

What are you guys really hoping to see? Surprise 3&3/4" figs? Next 2 waves of 6" guys? Upcoming store exclusives?

I would really like to see about all of the 6" figures that have been rumored about for the past few months, including Bossk, C-3PO, etc. I know the TIE Pilot is going to be shown too.

That's pretty much it. There are a couple of pieces of information I would love to get confirmation on too though, namely, what is going on with the Anakin/Clone Trooper 6" wave that has been MIA all year, and can they please confirm plans to release the Ghost in the Rebels line?

I think the only thing I really want to know for this line coming out of SDCC is WHEN. (!?!?)

That's another figure with some army-building potential. Too bad we'll never get a ride for 'em.
