Celebration V
« on: August 11, 2010, 09:37 AM »
So, I'm not there and chances are most of you aren't either...anyone have a schedule as to when Hasbro has a presentation...when the show opens etc?

I'd expect to see AOTC and maybe the first 2011 Wave (TPM?)

Yeah, I wish I could go, but I'll definitely be following along with stuff online as much as possible.  I'm wondering what we'll see that's "new" as well.  I'm sure we'll finally get the reveal of the Slave 1 set, which at this point has already been found at retail.  Like you said Scott, I'd guess the AOTC wave, and then a peek at 2011.  I can't remember for sure, but do the "themed" waves go away after AOTC?  I thought originally they said next Fall, but then later updated that in a Q and A saying that this year's offerings would be the last one.  I guess we'll find out in a day or two.  I was curious when the Hasbro presentation was going to be as well.

Ryan and I were going to go until it was annouced that it would be in Florida. That completely killed our plans for a sequal to our Ultimate Group Project diorama. If it was in Chicago or LA it would have happened. This version was going to dwarf C4's version in size. We even talked about having the biggest collection of imperial troops ever assembled for a convention in the middle of the diorama. It would have been amazing!

I'm hoping for a sneak peek at the next 1-2 (or maybe even 3) waves of TVC for 2011, same for TCW. I just hope though that Hasbro's slideshow panel isn't 99.9% of the one used in SDCC.

I see on Scum's preview pictures they have some neat dioramas set up for the Hasbro stuff...  A large Bespin Gantry that features a funny "hidden" glimpse of what our very own ICMG was up to I guess.

I thought the Ryloth Bridge scene from Clone Wars was particularly well done.

They also had a Hoth display that may (or may not, I didn't really look it over) be the same from SDCC.

 I think it will be mostly what they showed at the SDCC with a few more things like the AOTC wave like Scott said.  I am hoping for some sneak peak stuff from the ANH wave but I don't expect it.  I suppose they may show carded figures from the ROTJ wave? 

I am just not getting my hopes up as far as new reveals go.  It will primarily just be showcasing stuff that is out now or in the very new future we have already heard about or seen. 

But hey if they want to announce they are making a Sail Barge feel free to do so Hasbro  ;D

Is it too early to be disappointed already?  ;D

I'll be curious to see more photos from today, but the initial galleries on Sandtroopers last night were totally underwhelming. All I saw was crap that has been leaked for months...the Carnie/Fixer comic pack, Vintage Wave 2, Slave 1, etc.

I know there will likely be more out than what has been pictured to this point, so I am cautiously optimistic, but bracing for a letdown.

Where's the HMP? Cato Parasitti? Undead Geonosian?

I guess the best hope is that the slideshow gets updated from SDCC and they actually show off some stuff from next year.

I think we could see a couple of new waves. Up to ANH at least. I'm expecting a nice surprise or two.

Yeah - I'm thinking the same thing - where's the AOTC Vintage Wave?

Tomorrow! I do not expect to be surprised but I expect to see that wave in pictures at the very least. When Hasbro said they were going to hold some items back I am sure they had this wave and the leaked Slave One in mind at a minimum. I am hoping there is at least 1-2 unknown exclusives and or a preview of next year. If none of that happens I must say it would be underwhelming. Let the bitching start (if warranted) after the slide show tomorrow.

They really should have saved the big guns for the all SW show but we must have Jedi patience until then.

This is Hasbro's last chance to showcase a sneak-peek into 2011. And they always (at least usually) have something to show off for the next year. Here's to hoping they don't disappoint... again. ::)

GH says something about him keeping his #26 slot in the line, even though he'll come way later.
