Remember when Hasbro says they will "never make this", that's code for "coming next year".

I'm totally down for this and Hasbro can reuse most of it for a Qui-gon funeral pyre as well.

MAKE IT HASBRO!!!!

It is definitely an iconic scene from the OT. I'm down for sure on this one if they end up making it, and I really hope that they do. It is one of the better pieces at SDCC this year, and it has been a really good showing, so that's saying something.

As a toy I'd buy it.
But from the movie the thing that bothered me from that scene was that the wood was chopped, didn't Luke have a lighsaber  :-\

The more I look at this, it definitely reminds of a Hallmark ornament.

Someone mentioned earlier to make this next years SDCC exclusive, they really should, just like the Vader/Palps scene from last year.

I guess one should never underestimate the power of martyring a product.  I smell a turkey.

Would you honestly pay $30 or so, and maybe shipping, for this?  It wouldn't be a $20 item.  If this were a $13 comic pack I'm sure I'd be seeing the exact opposite reaction regarding more of the same, Hasbro putting the screws to fans, etc. etc.

Yep.  I don't do customs, and I'd love to get this scene onto the shelves.  $22.99 - $24.99 sounds about right for it.  It's essentially a cinema scene / battle pack.

Except that it isn't, and it's going to be $30+ if it gets made.  If it goes online only it's probably going to be more by a couple of bucks.   Would it be as appealing at a $30 price point, before tax and possibly shipping?  Or are you, like me, a fan that will buy pretty much anything?

Custom or no, there's really nothing appealing here at that price outside the fact that our being shown this has created a "gap" in our collections which may never be filled.  And last week, we probably wouldn't have ever cared either way.

I told Hasbro yes. Neat idea. The asked me what I think people would pay for it, I said people would start grumbling if it was more than $30.

AP - I'm curious to know why you disliked the set.  I thought it looked pretty neat for what it was and yes I'd pay $30 for this.

The Funeral Pyre for Darth Vader set was a blemish on an otherwise shining product offering, and if you liked that set, I'm sorry. You're wrong.

Yes.  I'm a collector.  What gets me the most excited about continuing to collect is new items that I haven't bought already.

The difference between $25 and $30 isn't going to kill me.  I spent way too much on that crappy Joker Squad, I'd much rather overpay a little bit to buy an iconic, never-before-made movie scene.
