I'm in the same boat as Sith Lord Chaos, I need a leia but unforunately can't attend. I need 3 of them, I for me and 2 for a couple of buddies of mine, I know the limit is 3 per person. If any one can help, I'll greatly make it worth your while. Thanks.

I'm thinking I'm gonna hold off till 2006 ComicCon. A little too close for me to raise a comfortable amount of cashola beforehand. I'd love to go, though.

I'm sure I'm going. Haven't made arrangements, but I can't see why it won't happen again.

FYI:

At the San Diego convention this year, the MR mini will be the Black Smoked Chrome Yoda ROTS .45 Lightsaber (like Obi-Wan's for CIII).

I am assuming the same price point of $35.00 like at C3.  I am also assuming you'll be able to buy other props there but, hopefully, the line for this one won't be too bad.

I am moving to Mesa, AZ on the 20th.  I will actually be within range of this place.  I think it will be to close to my move.  Plus, the wife is probably still shaking her head by letting me go to C3 :)

I may be able to go for a day or two.  My Brother and sister are thinking about taking my nieces to sea world on july 17th so I ask for the week off.  If I go I will end up going with my cousin to try and get what every exclusives GG has to offer and the Liea.

So Gentle Giant just announced their Comic Con exclusive, and it's a rather unexciting Silver Jango Fett Bust-up.  Huh.  Surprised if they don't have a bust this year, in the middle of all the ROTS hype, with the last big hurrah going on right now, and after having regular busts the last couple years.  Strange...

Maybe they'll surprise us all and still announce one though, and just have two exclusives there.  But I think it sounds pretty doubtful at this point.  One less headache for me, and everyone else, though.

So who all's going to want the Silver Jango?  They're supposedly limited to one per day, but we'll see what we can do about that.  No word yet on price, but I'd expect it to probably be around $10.

I think it's time to start a running tally here of who wants what from Comic Con next month, so I'll get it started here with a preliminary list.  Holler if you've got an update/revision for it!  These names aren't in a completely finalized order here, as I've also gotten a number of requests at various times via PM as well (that I haven't gone all the way through again lately)...

Hasbro's Holographic Leia ($14):

jokabofe x2
Morgbug x1
DSJ x1
Jesse James x1
Scott x1
Jeff x1
JesseVader08 x2
Kneel Before Zod x2
Sith Lord Chaos x1
jadesfire x1
JoshEEE x1
erb1975 x1-3
evenflow x1
JedioftheNorth x2
chuckles


Master Replica's .45 Smoked Chrome Yoda Mini-saber ($35):

jadesfire
psu189
Jedidz23
JuvyD (if it's not at WW Chicago)


Gentle Giant's silver Jango Fett Bust-up ($5?):

JoshEEE
Morgbug
JesseVader08
chuckles


I think that's all so far...

Morgbug x1 (or 2?)

One is fine, if you score enough for a second, I'll open it up and put it in the never happened collection.

If you can swing it, I'd go for 2 of the Holo Leia's.   :)

Can anyone help a Canadian who can't attend all I would need would be 2 at the most.  If anyone can help please let me know.

Thanks

With what, the Yoda saber, or one of the other exclusives we've been discussing in here (Holo Leia, Jango Bust-up, etc.)...?  I already have you down for a couple Holo Leias, so I wanted to double check.

LMK, and I'll add your request into the official exclusives wants list above.  Also need a definite 1 or 2 for your order, since we don't want to be stuck with any extras of anything...

First Look: Comic-Con 2005 Exclusive .45  Yoda's Lighsaber

Not much to look at but I have the other two already so.....
I really wish MR would get their three-tier cases done.  I'm tired of these mini's sitting in their boxes.
