I'll be happy to get this, but even happier if this Owen ends up on a vintage card.

I agree - even if they end up being exclusives, I would love to finally see Beru and Owen on ANH Vintage Cards.

Looks purdy. I might have to pick this up now, even though I originally had no desire. Love the packaging!

^^ I really like this set now! The packaging is absolutely beautiful, and the paint apps on Maul are very good. I expected this to be around the $19 range, but its only $14.99!!

I had no clue this is a "box" set.  Kinda neat I guess, but unnecessary IMO.

The Cammie/Fixer set is coming the same way. I saw a preview of it on a G4 Special on Celebration V - one of the segments on the show was about the Hasbro memorabilia and they showed off the Bounty Hunter mis-name pack and the Cammie/Fixer Comic Pack.

I kinda like it - it makes the set stand-out from the others. I think they may have gone ahead and done this box packaging 'cause they probably have even more Comic Packs that were in the pipeline and a comic pack makes total sense as far as an exclusive for a show like SDCC. I would totally be happy if each year we got a really great comic pack as the SDCC exclusive.

That Owen needs to be given a Vintage Home!

The packaging for this set is very nice -the concept ? To each their own.

I just realized Uncle Owen has no articulated ankles. And this is definitely the year of Cyborg Maul - first an action figure, next an incredibly beautiful Premium Format Figure.

So who is supposed to have this online? HasbroToyShop.com or StarWarsShop.com or both?

I know they said that quantities were limited, but they say that all the time and then figures like the Stormtrooper Commander are still available a year later...  :-\

It seems this time, though, that quantities are EXTREMELY limited. They were making a limited run in the first place for attendees at SDCC, but I think it's any leftovers that are getting sold on HTS and SWS, if there are any.

Well - if quantities are "VERY limited" - I hope thast means that they aren't so "VERY limited" that Brian's toys can sell plenty of sets at $40 and HasbroToyShop.com and/or StarWarsShop.com sell out in minutes after they're posted online. >:(

Every exclusive at shows like this have "extremely limited quantities", and I think they probably are a shorter production run.  However they've rarely proven difficult to get online, so I wouldn't worry.

It's actually available for order now from StarWarsShop.com

http://shop.starwars.com/catalog/product.xml?topcatID=1300264;product_id=1321850&ReferrerID=CJADBN-00001

I just placed my order, so I'm happy, this is one less convention exclusive I have to worry about.

I went ahead and nabbed it now, rather than wait to see if there was anything else on HTS to get with it.  Rarely is.
