The SDCC SW comic pack from last year actually hung around on HTS for a while. I bought one when they first went up but they were on for quite a while. I actually was surprised when I noticed they were finally gone from the site.
The Zarana figure should be popular with Joe fans, but other than some speculators, that's about it. The Starscream variant is a different story, it's going to be popular with both Joe and TF collectors and I wouldn't be surprised to see a sellout at SDCC, but I also think Hasbro will make enough that there will be some online. They own this one so they’re going to make as much scratch on it as possible.
The Indiana Jones set is a big question mark IMO. It's a set of figures that are arguably more popular than 2 of the 4 waves we did get. That alone could make it hard to get. But the thing that hinders that set is probably going to be the price. It’s not going to be cheap, and that should turn away the amateur speculators. I haven’t been able to make a call on this one. Could go either way, but again, I think Hasbro will try to get as many of this set out as they can and we should have a chance at it on HTS and SSW. I just dread what the shipping is going to be on it.
The IJ set speculation reminds me of an article Joe K had me read about SDCC. It was sort of a recap/commentary on the show (I think it was the 2009 show) by a guy that writes for one of the comic book publications. Anyway, one of the things he talked about as part of his commentary was about the attendees that were walking around on day 1, already broke, and their only goal was trying to be the first to Tweet or Facebook some scoop about a movie or toy line or whatnot. I think his basic comment was that while a lot of people attend that show to buy stuff, a lot more, and he thought it was a trend, are just attending to try and reap some glory by being “first” to get some piece of news out even if it breaks them.
A lot of those types are the target audience for these collectibles but if they have no money to spend who is left to buy? Us. Sitting at home (or possibly work) in a comfy chair, mashing the F5 key and whoring out our CC numbers...but still saving hundreds (thousands?) in plane, hotel, ticket and food costs.
