The 12" Fett is very popular, sells out fast. I was lucky to get 1 for myself.
Yeah, they're running $150+ on evilbay at the moment Thought about snagging one then thought better of it.
I saw them at CV running for $250, crazy!
It's been a week since CV came and went and now that's I've finally wound down from that I wanted to share some thoughts...
* I should have paid attention as to who was all coming to CV, would have been nice to meet some of the JD crew I didn't meet @ C3.
* Thursday for me was the best day for deals at the vendors, scored some great vintage pickups including a mint Boba Fett for $6! Thursday was also the day to catch up with a lot of old friends - Curto, Niubniub, old Listserv and BHC folks - as well as meeting new folks like Jayson, the Hasbro team, and several people at the Yakface/SWAN party. The Yak/SWAN team did a fantastic job for their party, it was a great atmosphere with loads of fun.
* Got to sit front row for the One Man SW Trilogy, that was a great show. The guy running it does a fantastic job of hamming it up and expressing visualizations without props. The control of lines by the con staff for this show was a bit hampered by the humongous line for Mark Hamill. My only complaint for the show was the poor handling of some of the lines, especially the entry line everyday.
* Huge props to the Belgium propmasters for bringing their full scale TIE Interceptor and
Outrider interior. The details on all of their pieces were fantastic and they deserve all the kudos they were receiving throughout the weekend. The same goes for the Rebel Legion and their Snowspeeder and the crew who put together the Jabba/Cantina scene - I could never get in to the scene the line was always so long!
* The various panels were fantastic - Gus, Chris G, Duncan, and everyone else involved put together intriguing discussions on the various topics. I especially enjoyed the "Filming Locations" panel as I found out lots of details about various sets that I never knew - I always thought the Lars Homestead hut was an actual building in Tunisia, turns out it wasn't. A shame though that so many people were only interested in the cereal boxes and not the content of the panels, it made for some rather rude exits at the end of one of the panels I was in.
* Dave Filoni is AWESOME! If you were there and went to any of his sessions, especially the Saturday Clone Wars session, you understand why I say this. Do NOT hide what is inside! Can't wait for Season 3 to begin, Dathomiri Nightsisters, hell yeah!
* The entire Hasbro team deserves kudos as well, they were very open and willing to discuss whatever topic was on people's mind. Their displays were over the top cool, the Build-A-Droid trading idea was great, and getting to play with the R/C Hailfire Droid was sweet. Also getting to see a few hints at the sculptor's (Dave something or another
) booth was cool - 2011 Han headsculpt was a big surprise, likely the Bespin Han since Derryl went all "no comment" on it.
It was also interesting to sit on their panel to get an idea how it is ran, too bad they went too long would have liked to hear questions from the media.
Though by Sunday I was beat and had no desire to walk the halls any further, I wish CV had not ended. It was a great time and a stellar effort put on by everyone involved.
