So... who's going to gamble?

If anyone does take the gamble on the pre-order, I hope it turns out better then the last time they put up a pre-order like this (2007 Collector Box Set) or the AHQ Blue Stars and Maul Speeder some of you are still waiting for...   :-\

I think I might gamble on these.  Worst case, I go to ebay which is where I'd end up anyway...

Nope, not going to get these. Nice as there are, it's not my collecting bag.

Here's Yoda shown with the Pepsi bottle at the Medicom Toy Exhibition.

Here's a very clear shot of these from today's Medicom update:



Would still like to get these eventually...

Oh man! I want that 501st clone one bad. Can anyone tell me the easiest way to go about getting one of these without having to spend a fortune?

So it just occured to me, none of those images show key chains on these.  Were these "confirmed" to be key chains or did we just speculate on that based on the last Pepsi Nex promo?

I decided to gamble on these and pre-ordered a set today.  It's really not that bad of a price if they do end up coming through.  We'll see.  They are supposed to be in stock next month...

If you only want one, I would wait until the individual ones start showing up on ebay.  The Fox promotional ones that were out recently were sold individually after a while.

Based on this photo, I assumed they were keychains.  The latest photo from Medicom doesn't show the rings...

I had a feeling that would be the case. Problem is, on eBay things like this tend to go for crazy amounts (unless I'm missing the good auctions ???).

Yeah, I'm pretty sure they're going to be keychains, which turns me off, personally. It's stupid to put keychains on things like this, although not as stupid as the Blister-exclusive Alien vs. Predator snap kits I have (basically 4" scale Alien and Predator figures that were sold with a keychain part you could attach). Not only are they huge for keychains (unless you want to make a "bathroom key" or something) they were also very very fragile, so there's no way you could actually use it as a keychain. I guess making them keychains (or, knowing Japan, more like cell phone or bag charms) makes them more appealing to the general public than if they were just little figures.

You know, it didn't cross my mind until now, but considering they have the Clone Trooper Commander in 70% Be@rbrick form and we are getting that same figure as a chase in Series 9, does anyone else think that we might be getting a 501st Clone as a chase in Series 10?
