So obviously this thing isn't a comic-con exclusive anymore right?

I ordered 5 - two for myself, two for a friend, one for another friend.

Dude, there should be a limit of 2 on these things.  Scalpers are going to take advantage.

 >:(

People find ways around it regardless of the "limit" anyway.  I am going to spend $15 on something else.  Man.  I am a negative Nancy tonight.

I got one...  Kinda wanting a 2nd though.  It's not a bad figure honestly.  The price though....  Even on a group order, they're coming in at a butt-reaming $17 each after shipping.  Sheesh.

In the photos at SWShop.com,. it still has the SDCC logo on it so the assumption is that it's still a go for this year's con.

I think that is why the shipping date is August (after the con is over).

If it's still a con exclusive it would be nice if they'd let us pick it up at the con. Could at least save on shipping and make the cost a little more bearable.

I guess having the SDCC logo on the package means nothing after all...

From the Official Site:

"Please note that this figure will not be offered at the San Diego Comic-Con International or any other convention venue --  StarWarsShop is the only place to get this worldwide exclusive!"


Wonder why they changed their minds about selling it at the Con?   ???

Maybe because they decided they would use the 501st Stormie as the SDCC exclusive instead of the Blackhole Stormie...

Yeah, it's pretty clear that for some reason they decided to switch them up - make the 501st the Convention exclusive instead of this one.

My question was meant as more of a "why do you think they decided to switch the SDCC exclusive to the 501st instead of this one?"

It's obvious from the carded photo that it was originally going to be the SDCC item (otherwise why have the SDCC logo on the package  ???).  Why abandon it in favor of the 501st? 

Beacause the 501st is more "fan oriented" for a fan convention?

That makes sense. They also may have figured that more people want the Shadow Trooper, and aren't able to make the trip to SDCC to get one. Either way, they're still getting us to buy $15 figures.

Yeah, I'm not buying it, either.  I can make my own Shadow Trooper with a Sharpie.   ;)
