SDCC'08 Disturbance in the Force Set
« on: February 17, 2008, 07:43 AM »
One other nugget to come out of Hasbro's mouth yesterday - the SDCC exclusives were announced!

No pics yet, but expect to see an exclusive Commander Gree Mighty Muggs and an exclusive Executor Chamber set featuring Vader and a light-up Holo Emperor.  :)

Well Chamber sounds interesting, is this the holographic emperor head they were talking about.

I'm also guessing that it will feature either a pre-posed Vader that is kneeling or the Evolutions Vader since that one can probably kneel the best out of any of the Vader figures. But I agree - this will be where we get the Holo Emperor head.

Speaking of exclusives, no toy fair exclusives for Star Wars or Indy?

Evo Vader and Bespin Sculpt Vader both kneel perfectly.  I think my Bespin one I have in a kneeling pose with his head tilted down like he's bowing to the holographic image... 

This is awesome news I think...  Some of the coolest stuff out of TF this year. :)  Kickin' rear end on that.  I've always felt that was iconic, and would dig a display for that moment.

Commander Gree Mighty Muggs

Very cool! Will it have ball-jointed wrists?  :D

Doesn't the Bespin Vader have the flip-up cod-piece like the VOTC figure? I guess if Vader is happy to see the Emperor that figure would work just fine.  ;D

It's a separate piece, but if you're careful it slides under the cut of the thigh and stays flat...  No "I'm your papa boner" jokes for Vader.

Jeff, was this shown at all?  Or simply announced?  I just can wait to see this.

Only one 3 3/4" exclusive? Thank goodness.

I could do without a Hasbro Star Wars exclusive this year to be honest.

It was not shown, but simply announced during the small Q&A that they did at the end of the presentation...

I'm calling it now, the Gree Mighty Mugg will cost $25 (due to the "Special SDCC Packaging") and the Executor Chamber will be $50. Meaning that SWS.com will sell them afterwards for, oh, double the cost.

I don't know, I'm not expecting much from the Chamber. Sounds like it'll be a rehash Vader on a small platform with the OTC Holo Emperor over a flashlight.

I think the chamber will be pretty sweet. Hasbro has been doing a great job on the mainline and will not cop out. Far superior to the lame ass (Read this with an echo in your voice) SHADOW SCOUT!!!!!!!!!

While I think MM's are the dumbest things ever making an exclusive fits the audience. I would have preferred a real figure repaint or something but this will be one less headache to obtain.

Man, I hear ya.

I don't get the obsession with MM figs. They are cute, but not $10 cute. And they are very redundant. I'm only slightly tempted, but it's a temptation I can easily overcome. (Especially with what is coming out later this year..AT-TE  drools on self)
I'm just a humble collector trying to make his way through the universe...of toy aisles.
