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... ???

Love it...although I wonder what that means for the basic line?  (I'll discuss that there!)  I'll take two!

******* Hasbro...  I'm lovin this guy, but I'm concerned as to how hard it's going to be for the average collector to track this and the bot set down without being at the convention or knowing somebody that can help out.  Why couldn't this have been issued into a standard TAC wave with a Mc Concept fig??  I sure hope HTS will have extras.

I can smell side by side artwork for Vader and Luke, on the cardbacks, for added display for the MOC collectors.
