Okay lets start taking wagers.  Will this end up online or not?  So how many convention figs never ended up online?  Not counting overseas promotions, would it only be the C2 and C3 figs ???

C3 Vader came online at SWS.com a little while after the show itself.  Sacul did not though other than secondary retailers. 

I'd suggest the odds are very good this will show up on SWS.com by September at the latest.  I'd prefer to have my hands on it prior to that, but if I don't get it, it won't be a huge deal.

Looks like Hasbro has confirmed that the 501st San Diego Comic Con figure will be available on www.HasbroToyShop.com sometime after the convention...

That is good news. Plus I love when morons spend $40 on a presale at Brianstoys.

Wondering now what the price'll be.  I'd be willing to pick up a handful if they're $10 or less I think...  I love these guys for a possible front row to my army. :)

Unfortunately, I doubt they are below $15 since that seems to be the new price for these exclusive figures from on-line shops...

I'd guess I'll end up getting soaked for about $40 for my one opener and my one loose figure.   :-\

Hmmm... anything over $15, I'll pass on it.

I really don't think it'll be over 15 due to the fact that the last 2 SDCC Hasbro exclusives were both around 14-15 dollars (depending if you got the star case).
I remember my dream now.

You know, come to think of it, one could make your own decals and make your own 501st(s). :P

I'm only hoping for a lower price because it is Hasbro's shop this time...  You're likely right though Jeff, and this'll just be too much.  I'll get one if they're $15 and if they're available anywhere for a while I might cave for a 2nd one but definitely not army building him.

Hasbros' shipping will quickly wash out the lower figure price if they even are lower at all. Its nice they are offering this mediocre exclusive.
The new Sandtrooper is the bomb you can make all the VOTC Stormtoopers you want. A little paint thinner cleans the up really nice and its have the price with worthwhile extra parts.

More on-line availability confirmation tonight...

From www.StarWars.com:

"This HasbroToyShop.com exclusive will be sold on site at Hasbro's booth and simultaneously online at HasbroToyShop.com. Any quantities left over after the show will continue to be sold online."

Guess that means we can look for it to go on-line sometime during the show...  :)

Excellent news.  Whatever the personal limit is, I'll probably order that many.  I'm not sure why I like this one so much, I guess I'm a sucker for that flag and it's apparent homage to WWII.

I hope the price is a bit more reasonable...  I don't have a lot of hope for this, but still I really am wishing these were $10 or less.  I'll try for two I think, as opposed to just the one...  I figure they can at least go to the front corners of a display of Stormies. :)
