SDCC McQuarrie Obi-Wan and Yoda
« on: May 15, 2007, 09:13 AM »
OK, let's see where we are at...

Following the news of Yoda and Obi-Wan, that leaves us with just one of the 12 McQuarrie concept carded figures for 2007 to be revealed:

#1 - Stormtrooper (30AC Wave 1)
#2 - Boba Fett (30AC Wave 2)
#3 - Chewbacca (30AC Wave 3)
#4 - Darth Vader (30AC Wave 4)
#5 - Starkiller Hero (30AC Wave 5)
#6 - Snowtrooper (rumored for 30AC Wave 6)
#7 - "Han Solo" (rumored for 30AC Wave 7)
#8 - "Rebel Trooper" (rumored for 30AC Wave 8 )
#9 - C-3PO & R2-D2 (Celebration IV Store)
#10 - Luke Skywalker (HasbroToyShop @ C-IV)
#11 - Obi-Wan Kenobi & Yoda 2-Pack (rumored for a summer convention)
#12 - ?

I guess I'm not sure if Obi-Wan and Yoda are carded together (like 3PO and R2), but all we've heard so far indicate they will be.  I'm starting to wonder if there will be two SDCC figures this year like Celebration IV, one at SWShop and one at Hasbro Toy Shop.  Otherwise, I'm not quite sure where that 12th figure will land...
 
All bitching about exclusives aside for a moment, this is shaping up to be a very cool sub-line. :)

I hope those rumblings pan out, as it would be nice to get a couple more McQuarrie figures added to the collection.  I was particularly hoping we would see that version of Yoda, and having a set of 12 would be kind of cool.  I hope, even if they are exclusives (to Comic Con maybe?), they aren't too tough for everyone to get.  It really is a neat subline.

Oh, yeah. The Budda-like one with the four arms. That would rock.

Enough with concept exclusives!! Release them in the basic line, they're popular enough as it is! If Hasbro wants to put the Mcfigures on exlusive con cards, then great! Just release them to us regular folk who admire Ralph and Joe just as much as the con-goers.

Sounds like the Yoda & Obi-Wan are bound for SDCC.  That's the logical move, since that's the one summer show that Hasbro attends like clockwork.

I personally wouldn't mind either a Jabba or a concept Lando. I must say, I am not looking forward to finding what is looking like it will be the SDCC figure(s). :-\

I guess it is possible that the 12th figure isn't really even going to be a Concept itself, it is just General McQuarrie, or did they already say that isn't the case?

I'm not convinced that Yoda/Obi are bound for SDCC necessarily.  I think it's a reasonable assumption, but from what I can tell they seem more like a general release.

I don't think we are getting another 2-pack. I think the 11th will be Yoda and the 12th will be obi-wan. Now if they gave us a human jabba that would be awesome.

No, not a hatah to those who can go... it's just unfair for those who don't live close enough to go or can't afford to travel and expenses, plus the overpriced figures. That's my gripe with Hasbro.

I'm not sure where the Yoda/Obi 2 pack exclusive rumor came from, but man am I not going to be happy (again... times 3) if it comes true.

I always hated that I couldn't go to the other Celebrations... it's OK though, I simply networked with Matt to get the excl's so no need to hate the Manufacturer on that note for me.

 Then, so do me a favor, don't buy from them so I can get more, thanks.
