Official C4 non-attendees beg for exclusive **** thread
« on: February 23, 2007, 11:23 AM »
Like me, I'm sure there are people not attending the Celebration 4 festivities and need help acquiring any exclusive stuff companies will probably have.  Post your lists here and hopefully those people going will be nice enough to help out.

My list (and I'll update as we find out more info):
1.  Acme's exclusive character key (whomever it might be) - sounds like it might be a pre-order for those attending which should make it fairly easy to abtain.  No waiting in line hopefully. - Already pre-ordered
2.  Gentle Giant animated R2 / Yoda maquette
3.  McQuarrie R2-D2 / C-3PO x2
4.  McQuarrie Luke x2

Heh, at least someone else started it :P  I may, or may not be going, it is undecided but leaning towards not attending, so I'll jump in here:

1. Acme exclusive character key
2. Gentle Giant Commander Gree bust
3. Gentle Giant exclusive bustup - I'm guessing here
4. Hasbro exclusive McQuarrie R2/3PO 2-pack (2)
5. Hasbro exclusive titanium 3" ship - the gold Jedi starfighter is inevitable
6. Gentle Giant R2-D2/Yoda animated maquette
7. Master Replicas Wedge Antilles scaled helmet

I'll happily provide moolah in advance.

Same with me, I have always tried to help out those who couldn't go so I shouldn't stop now.  As long as I get my stuff and (possbly my cousin) I will help out anyone else here.

I'm looking for the Commander Gree and Darth Malak Mini Busts.  I'll also be looking for a total of 3 of whatever Hasbro is offering, 2 for myself and 1 for a buddy.

Dale's offered to help me out, but if anyone else is going and waiting in that line and NOT buying them, let me know - I'd love to get an extra Gree/Malak or two to try to trade for the other two busts that will be Japan and UK exclusives later in the year 

PM me.   :)

Updated my list.

From what I've been reading, it sounds like the Acme key might be a pre-order for pick up at the show.  Hopefully that's true as it greatly reduces the hassle involved.

I'll do wahtever I can for all of you but the down side is you might have to pay a little extra for postage as there is no way I can bring all this stuff back in two suitcases.  I "might" just have to ship it from LA (assuming the convention will have a shipping center set up)....unless someone else takes it after I buy it.  I guess we'll have to see how it all works out as it draws closer.  I drove to C2 and C3, so that was easy to buy extra...this will be more challenging!!

Always nice when someone is willing to help.  ;D I don't want to speak for everyone, but postage is not an issue for me. I assume most would feel the same way.

I'll gladly pay shipping from LA and am willing to throw in a bit extra for the trouble to anyone that's able to help me out.

Since I live the area I'll try to get extras of the Hasbro stuff and see if I can get a couple of the GG Maquettes since I have no interest in that one. As for busts I may see if I can get an extra of each one but it all depends on how many people I can get to go with me that doesn't collect.

Just remember, I'm making stuff up/guessing as to what will be there.  With respect to the Hasbro stuff, I'm not sweating too much as I expect anything from them to be at the online store in time.  Geez, I still have 2-3 extra CIII Vaders around here somewhere.  It's crazy man.  Crazy.

Also note I'm realistic in my expectations based on what happened at CIII.  I hope they figure out a better system than the mad dash approach, so if I get shut out on everything, so be it, there'll be no gnashing of teeth.

Agreed with Brent.  I'm not going to lose sleep if I miss anything. 

Sidewshow is setting aside some of the Yavin Luke for non-attendees.  I had no problem acquiring the Sith Anakin from C3 and I'd imagine Luke will be no different.

It sounds like Acme is also taking the necessary steps to get a key into the hands of everyone who wants one, attendee or not.

We'll see what Gentle Giant has to offer with regards to service.
