I wonder if the Jocasta figure was originally slated as a mail way before they canned the idea. It seems to fit like it was.

We'll probably never know, but I think it was likely the Celebration VI exclusive.  Packaging seems a little too nice and too many accessories to have been the mail away.

Too limited appeal for mail-away...remember they acted like Sgt. Brick didn't do well enough, kinda doubt they'd have promoted some old librarian to general audiences as a mail-in.

It screams Celebration exclusive to me.  What is amazing is they had all this time to get an exclusive for it and could not deliver on one.  It's very strange.  Yeah, there is no way it was going to Brian's Toys.  I would think Entertainment Earth would get it before Brian's Toys would.  Good score for them though.

It wasn't that long ago that we got Qui-Gon and Eopie as a mail away. I am sure that was more plastic than what we are getting for three times the price with Jocasta. And no matter what they are trying to say about Bric, they did have to produce more to fill all the orders.

I ordered a Jocasta, not because I am dying to have one, but because I like the possibility of having other figures that a portion of the collectors' world wants but the general public would never support.

I fogot about the Eopie.  Good call.
