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?
