I'm personally glad they made this a convention exclusive, although I think having this be an online exclusive would have been fine too.
I'm just glad they didn't stick this in stores to warm the pegs.
Yeah I think if it's like a Target thing a pack of repaints for an Arm and a leg would be twice as frustrating.
I was looking at the ebay auction pics of this set today and was a little bit confused when I remembered something. At Toy Fair in February, Hasbro was hinting that the 2016 SDCC exclusive would be Rogue One teaser item (trooper in exclusive packaging, like they did for TFA).
This doesn't seem to be a Rogue One item (unless Red Squadron X-Wings of Wedge/Garven/Biggs are part of RO). What if this set isn't the Hasbro
SDCC exclusive, but possibly the TRU
SDCC exclusive (like the awesome 6" Han vs Greedo pack they did once upon a time or the mega-3.75" box sets they've done the past few years)?
I guess what I'm saying is that there is still a chance that this set will end up in a store after all...
