If Hasbro does not announce general availability of both the Luke and 3PO/R2 figures soon they can simply kiss my $1,000+ per year collecting their lines goodbye.
These figures are pivotal to the collection of McQuarrie figures and I am going to be right pissed if they don't make these available (on single cards to match the other Concept figs and in reasonable quantities, no single day availability on a website that barely works and then is immediately sold out) to people who cannot attend C4.
I feel extremely misled by Hasbro with these... I had planned on having an AFA certified collection of the concept figs as well as loose ones to display. But these figs could easily top $80+ if they are not available elsewhere.
I totally understand what you're saying. It's like Hasbro figures the general public isn't going to know about these 2 new figures that continue with the spirit of the TAC line and most don't care about concept figures anyway (except the diehards from whom they can squeeze another large $ amount). It would have been better to have an exclusive figure that's not directly related to the current line... but that would make sense, wouldn't it?
