But according to SW.com:

If supplies allow, there may be some of these figures available at the show for people who have not pre-ordered them, and StarWarsShop may also have some to offer online following the con...

We'll see if these show up later.

Cross your fingers that they do show up at SWS.com.

So here's an interesting tidbit on the Holo Leia figure...

Hasbro (or SWS.com) apparently wised up, and nixed both of her ridiculous holographic blasters.  The bubble still has slots for the blasters though, but the blasters are definitely gone from the figure now.

One point for Hasbro, I guess.  :P

This news actually ticks me off somewhat.  The main reason I did not get this figure was because she was sporting twin blasters which made this piece look insanely stupid to me.  Now it does not look that bad and I would have gotten it.  It's cool in the end that they came to their senses though.  But nothing like hyping up the wrong product for the masses and then changing it at the last intant without any mention of doing so.

Jared's pic (one among many) of Leia from the Image Database:



Much better.  Nice to see that Hasbro came to their senses and removed the ridiculous blasters.

I think it sucks!

Now, when my TRU Holographic Palpatine comes after her with his Holo Lightsaber and Holo Sith Lightning, she won't have Holo Blasters to shoot back!  It's an outrage!!!

I guess Holo Yoda, Holo Plo Koon, and Holo Aayla can still step in to save her with their Holo lightsabers though...

 :o

Do you think the hood from the TRU Holo Emperor would work?   :-\

If the hood is removable on that figure like it is on the #11 RotS figure it is based on, it might just work.  Hmmm... I might just have to try it when I get home with my RotS #11 Emperor and my FF Leia.   :)

Anyone heard any more information about when the "extras" might be available on StarwarsShop.com?
