Star Wars Weekends Cantina Band Members
« on: May 16, 2007, 01:51 AM »
As per the front page there...  Lots of crap to find at Star Wars Weekends in Disney, however none will make a completist pull his hair out quite like the Cantina Band Exclusives! :)

5 figures, all repacks it seems, with new light & sound bases...  I'm likening this to C3 Vader in coolness terms.  Vader's neat but doesn't deliver a lot.  This delivers light and sound, kind of cool, might be a plus to displaying them...  Makes me that much more thankful I didn't buy the WM Tin by the way incase I get these, you at least get something new.

I think I'm just going to keep my eyes open to see if the bases turn up on Ebay. The wife got me the Wal-Mart tin for Valentines  Day so there's no point in buying these over again. Pretty cool idea though.

I did not buy the tins.  I have always wanted these on a card.  I like the bases and music concept.  Pretty cool exclusives.

I ended up picking up the Tin on sale mainly for the Art on the Tin- my favorite card from the Galaxies I set... and I thought the instruments were WAY better for my cantina scene than the brown originals.   I haven't opened up the figures though and I'm going to HAVE to get at least the bases (if not the whole shebang).

I want these but will not be at the weekend? Anyone going? Any chance these will be offered through the order line? I am going to Disney in September wish the weekend was then.

The bases look like they interlock so you can make the stage that alone is enough to buy it. I guess the set I have now will be used for customs.....

I wonder how much these will be.

Saturday and Sunday  ;)

A few months ago, fans got a sneak peek at four new exclusive maquettes bound for this year's Star Wars Weekends at Disney-MGM Studios in Florida. Visitors will have a bunch more exclusives waiting for them this year when the annual event stops in for four consecutive weekends between June 1 and June 24, with a great poster, pins, figures and other collectibles now readying for release.

Have their exclusives ever been available online??  I'm starting to get a bit peeved about all of these exclusive carded figs everywhere.  ::)

Some people had luck gettting the Disney exlusive Star Tours figures via an phone order number, but they have never been on-line by Disney before.

They say that these figures are Star Wars Weekends exclusive, so it will be interesting to see if they are only sold during the Weekends events or if they will filter out to the other Disney locations as well...

Ah, now I remember....but say you want one of each carded, how is Joe or Sally in the shipping dept going to tell the the difference.  I mean besides the instrument they're all the same so I doubt they'd be able to tell.  I missed the boat on w3 & w4 of the Star Tours stuff and it's pretty difficult to spot a complete set (in one auction) of either wave on eBay.

When an item is a limited edition, such as these figures, they typically are not made available through the Disney Mail Order department. Hopefully this may change, but it is not too likely.

Sadly, we probably wont see these over here on the West Coast at Disneyland either.

BUT>.... there may be the chance to get these after the weekends are over... they hit the store.

We have called for things to be shipped from the store and gotten them...

Just have to wait it out.

That is true. If there are leftovers, then they will be available through Mail Order.
