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)

Beware, it's the dark side of collecting trying to seduce you! Mind your training, save your money it can!

Also beware of the drought times, that's when will all will be most tempted to buy filler product.....

SDCC'08 Exclusives Revealed
« Reply #16 on: March 12, 2008, 09:07 PM »
From JTA

Q. In a previous Q&A with JTA, Hasbro grudgingly seemed to confirm that we might be getting a giant Emporer Palpatine's holographic head.  Would said hypothetical offering be in the Basic Figure line, or part of a Battle Pack?  And if it is part of a Battle Pack, what else might we get in such a set? [post-Toy Fair note: This was confirmed at Toy Fair]

A. Chuck we are pleased to announce the details on this one.  "Disturbance in the Force," the HasbroToyShop.com exclusive for San Diego Comic Con, consists of an existing Vader, a newly tooled base with lights and sounds, and a new holographic Emperor bust.  When the medallion in the center of the base is pressed, the hologram and light in the middle of the medallion light up, and a loooong sequence of movie dialogue is started.  This is one cool exclusive, and will also be available online after the Convention starts.

It's a really iconic sequence too, to me, so this may be one of the better exclusives (IMO) they've ever done...  Far superior to a Shadow Scout, which was an inaccurate representation of other EU characters.  I'll take something like this any day over that.

This does sound pretty sweet, and at least they are letting us know up front this time that they will be available online as well.  Hopefully everyone will be able to get one, because it sounds pretty nifty.

Knowing it's a HasbroToyShop convention exclusive, I'll guess that it will cost at least twice as much as it should cost...  :-X

Yeah, from the sounds of it too, it could be fairly large, so I could see the price climbing up there a bit.  I mean, we were paying anywhere from $15 to $20 for "regular" basic action figures, so this could be twice that, depending on how big it is.

I am very happy about this item, it's nice to have a real exclusive as opposed to the crappy Shadow scout. I really want to see more OTC exclusives like this, this is going to be sweet!

What stuck with me is one of the Q&A responses Hasbro eluded that they are making the old school frog eyed Emperor. I wish they would do a 100% new head for the evo one. I am really yearning for OTC, I am starting to get prequeled out.

At least I'm only buying one this year, so if it's a tad expensive, I wont be too bothered.

My guess is $30. If it's really a nice piece and big I do not mind paying the price as long as it kicks ass. If it's that good I would pay $40, which after buying online you will wind up paying close to that anyway.

WOW That is another big pass for me,  it looks like just a Vader with a base stand and a gentle giant bust.  nothing special to want me to get it.
