More cool stuff I won't be able to get.  Oh well, really just kind of like Fett and the Stormie anyway.   ;D 

How do they give these out?  Are they attached to the bottles?

Yes, and I think you can see which one you're going to get before you buy, which is nice. Are these the same as normal Be@rbricks in terms of quality and so forth?

If they are like the previous Pepsi Nex promo be@rs they have done, then yes - the figures are the same in terms of quality, but the promo ones are usually 65-70% the size of the standard be@rs (in other words 30% smaller than a normal be@r).

Do you have any information to indicate they are not blind packaged?

Well, it sure looks like the one in the plastic attached to the bottle in the second picture posted above is Vader.

Those are kind of neat.  I like the one with just the Imperial logo on it.

Has anyone been able to determine if these will only be available at Celebration Japan or will the pepsi promotion be extended to the entire country?

With shipping that works out to $4.49 each, not too bad I guess.

I thought the same thing.  I was kind of hoping for around $3.00-$3.50 each.  But considering that this is the first auction I've seen, I'm still thinking that the prices may come down on these.

Pepsi Nex Full Set of 16

Hey Doc, nice purchase!

I couldn't help myself.
I'm only keeping a few of them, going give a few to friends and sell some as well.
I really wanted the Stormie.
