Thanks for posting this review, it's definitely a great set, not something I particularly NEED but I'm glad they made it for those who want it. I def want a Sandy, Bespin Leia and possibly electro-vader - I got the first potj version many moons ago. I get the carbonite jar jar is a great nod to the fans, plus the new SA jar jar is a great figure in itself.

It's a conversation piece at least. After getting it, I feel like I can skip the retail release of the Lost wave card backs.

Wow - the items aren't even up and based on the site's response time it looks like Hasbro Toy Shop is getting CRUSHED.

It'd be nice if they actually figured it out some day.

At least put them up on different days (if there's anything left)  I know there's oceans of TF and Joe guys out there F5ing all day.

Every time it stops responding and I get a connection has timed out message - I get worried that the items were posted.....  :-\

I'm sure Hasbro has learned from their mistakes over the last few years, and have definitely replaced Bootsy, their veteran wheel-powered internet hamster, with a newer, faster model of quadroped in order to handle the increased traffic on the HTS site for the SDCC exclusives.

Oh, the site is down completely?

It must be retail's fault, because Hasbro is surely doing everything they can to get those items into the right hands.

LONG LIVE BOOTSY!

It's been a hard year at Hasbro Toy Shop - due to problems with Hasbro's retail partners, Hasbro Toy Shop has not been able to sell/offer individual figures this year - only case packs of 12 and due to the case-packs contents being dictated by the retail partners, the sales of these 12 figure "value packs" hasn't been as brisk as they had hoped, and as a result, the RBWACP (Replace Bootsy with a Cheetah Project) had to be put on hold. But never fear! Bootsy has been using his down-time due to the lack of anyone ordering product on the site to work out and build up his stamina and muscle mass. So the site should never go down!

The site is actually working just fine for me right now.  We''ll see how it does when the items go up for sale...

I'm sure there was a special code that you could only get at ComicCon from a certain Hasbro rep that will allow you to buy exclusives. <bitter much?>

I was just able to get on HTS for the first time all day...nothing yet. I am thinking it will be tomorrow for some reason.

It was tomorrow last year I think, but who knows....Pretty sure they announced it last year even.
