A cool item, I wonder if they will do them for all the McQuarrie series figures eventually. I'm passing, but tempted.

They advised that they will be doing select characters ... and vehicles... the next release will be a SDCC exclusive.

The sketchplate itself measures 7 inches by 3.35 inches. Sketchplate is mounted on a foam core spacer "to float" on the black acrylic backer.

I was actually hoping for a 3PO to go with my R2... and since it was not a Mcquarrie... I passed ...

I would have loved the oddity of a a concept Falcon by McQuarrie, which would have actually been the Tantive...

That would have been cool.

Good god, I thought this line died but ACME comes through with a C-3PO prototype sketchplate.  8)

Long awaited Sketchplate!

I may get it to go with R2... probably the only reason to get it.

I want this one to go with my R2.  If anybody gets #359 and is willing to sale it (or trade if I get a C-3PO) please let me know.  I think it would be cool having the same collection number of these two.

From the SDCC ACME booth, not sure what this is. Seems to be a fair size, might be just a large proto. Looks cool tho.

Rumor is it'll be high dollar.  I really want it but I don't think i can afford too much.

So we only got a small number of the TIE Fighter plates in for SDCC, but the balance of them will arrive to us in a few weeks. Keep an eye on CharacterKey.com as we plan on putting them up there the week of August 10th!
