I don't understand why Hasbro doesn't just clear this up and explain what the real deal is.

Because if they are going to re-release these as basic figures later in the year, it's better kept a secret until after the convention so as to sell the convention supply for $12.00 a piece.

If we all knew they were coming out later no one would care about whether they get them here or not.

I just assume these 3 will be made available at retail.  The reason being is I doubt they would the cost of all that tooling and not put them out for retail.  Coins will be exclusives for certain.  Just my opinion.

Let's not forget the Entertainment Earth Box Set of McQuarrie figures that will undoubtedly come out after we all try to chase down the "exclusives."  Yup, I can see it now, a nice 6 pack with:

McQuarrie Stormie
McQuarrie Vader
McQuarrie Chewie
McQuarrie Luke
McQuarrie 3P0/R2

I smell this, in addition to the previously discussed distinct aroma of ass.

Its funny, I was just thinking about that yesterday too.  "What if Hasbro decides to pack all of these into a 'Limited Edition McQuarrie Box Set' later on down the road?".  Of course, they'll probably pack in one new/different figure so that we'll all want it ;).

After trying to bribe, beg, borrow or steal a way to get a set of these, this was the same conclusion I came to.   It would be way out of character for the Exclusives to be new or one shots.

Every previous figure was a frankenstein/kit bash or a repaint (or horridly Red).

If the big H won't resculpt for the basic line due to $$, surely they won't sink that much into a limited release (and therefore limited revenue) figure.


That does not mean I'm not willing to pay for one of these, I just won't buy a half dozen at Ebay prices....just 3 of each.

That would be a relief for most of us if the "exclusive" part of the figure would be the coins and packaging and not the actual figure itself.

I think things are going to shake out favorably for the people who aren't able to attend the event.  The Celebration III Darth Vader wound up online at Star Wars Shop on April 25, 2005.  I'm not certain that it wound up online at any other point, but I think it's likely that the C-3PO with R2-D2 will show up on Star Wars Shop as well.

Hasbro mentioned in their article today that they will be selling the Luke at their Hasbro Toy Shop booth.  The fact that they mentioned Hasbro Toy Shop specifically in that article infers that HTS online will be offering the Luke.

Hmmm... if only there were some sort of bi-weekly Q&A with Hasbro that the fan sites could use to try to sort all this out.  :D

The next batch of answers is due this Friday (4/13), and I'm sure somebody out there must have asked about the availability of the Droids and just how exclusive they will be.  Luke was announced too late for this week, but there will probably be Luke questions/answers in the 4/27 batch.

So this makes me wonder, are we going to get McQuarrie versions of Han Solo, Luke (as a girl) and Lando (wearing Leia's dress)?

I guess this is worth repeating for those who don't keep track like us OCD folks...

These are confirmed:
Concept Stormtrooper (wave 1)
Concept Boba Fett (wave 2)
Concept Chewbacca (wave 3)
Concept Darth Vader (wave 4)
Concept R2-D2 & C-3PO (StarWarsShop @ Celebration)
Concept Scuba Gear Luke (HasbroToyShop @ Celebration)

These are not officially confirmed yet, but highly likely based on the retail list that came out this winter:
Concept Luke Skywalker #2 (wave 5) *
Concept Snowtrooper (wave 6) *
Concept Han Solo (wave 7) *
Concept Rebel Trooper (wave 8 ) *

- Again, those last 4 are not officially confirmed, but everything in wave 3 and 4 on that list panned out so it looks really good at this point. 

- There is some speculation that the wave 5 Luke is perhaps the Girl Luke since the Celebration Luke is Scuba Luke.  There is also some speculation that the wave 5 Luke is instead a basic figure version of the Celebration Luke.  No one knows at this point, but we should know within a few weeks I would guess.

- There has been no Concept Lando speculation/rumoring that I have seen.

I'd just like to go on record in case Hasbro is reading along - that I absolutely love these concept figures.

Fantastic Idea to make a whole line of it.
