Hasbro better have these on the web!
These are awesome. I personally wanted these as basics though.

I noticed something very strange...



Notice on the Celebration IV cardback it says "McQuarrie original concept Luke Skywalker"   ???

I guess they must have been originally considering having a different exclusive for each convention?  


Also, the text in the article makes it sound like you will be able to buy both variants, the C-IV version and the C-E version, at both shows?   Strange... ???

Very cool figures indeed.  Some nice sculpting going on there too on 3PO.  R2's cool too but that 3PO is one of the nicer concept figures so far I think.

Nice articulation on both figures too...  3po possibly super articulated?  Man that's almost overkill on the figure but appreciated.

I'm with Scott's total.  I'd like 2 sets.  Nice figures though, very cool and if you like McQuarrie stuff, boy oh boy 2007 is your year.  :o

As long as Hasbro makes these available online after the show, I'm cool. I'd love to pay good money for two sets.  :)

Okay, one of you guys is going to have to pick me up a set, maybe two. *looks at Kevin*

These are super nice though. And like the McChewie, they'll fit in with any diorama or in any group of figures. I think we have ourselves the first ever totally awesome convention exclusive!

Wasn't the C3 Vader available online? They wouldn't make a 100% new figure, and than not sell it elsewhere.  They just couldn't affford to do that.  Not only that, but C3 Vader is like 15-25 on Ebay.

These look really, really nice.  However, I would have liked a shiney 3PO!

McQuarrie + Fritz Lang + Star Wars Figure = a combination between the following emoticons...  :D8):-* / and  ;D

Seriously, well played! Thanks for making me regret my decision to sit C4 out.




(Damn. I'ma need someone to pick me up a few... someone like Kevin, maybe?)

Yeah, I have not decided yet if I will go to C4.  I want to but it's all about money and time off work, etc.  Even if I make it there it's no guarantee I will get the figure.  I don't want to wait in line 8 hours and they say "Sorry.  Brian's Toys 800 employees bought them all up."  LOL. 

Kickass set though.  Yes, it kills the C3 exclusive (although I like that to).
