I was just thinking Hasbro was kind of sucking big fat eggs at the moment...   

Well, I'm admittedly more impressed by the Sideshow and Gentle Giant line-ups (I sat going through those pictures for an hour last night), but from the coverage I've seen over at GH and RS, it looks like there are a few cool repacked and repainted clones.  I thought it was funny how you guys took pictures of the bottom of the case.  I bet they love that.  ;D

This may be a desperate fanboy in me, but did anyone at comic con get a better look at what this said?

 Actually, upon further observation, it looks more like "Figrin D'an and the Modal Nodes" Is this a multipack?

Yeah.  I was under the impression that it was one of the collectible tin sets based on some comments GH made early on, but after further consideration, that wouldn't make much sense, since the ones that we've seen for the Prequels are mostly all core-character rehashes.  So maybe there's a seperate, stand-alone, set just for the band members or something...  GH mentioned that there were 2 Band members in one set, and 3 in the other.  Not sure if that was based on visual confirmation, or just the artwork on the package though...

Matt -

If you go by Sideshow's booth, see if they have a price point on the 1:1 C-3PO and R2-D2.  I can not believe that they are making these - I gotta try to get R2 at least (cringes at what Jay will say :P).

Sounds like you may have to wait a bit to find out Beth:

Pricing and order information for both R2-D2 and C-3PO will be available later at www.SideshowCollectibles.com.

But I'll still try to hound 'em for the scoop.  ;)

I had no idea that R2 was for sale. I knew Sideshow wanted a bunch of 501st guys to pose for pictures and that they were going to have some droids there, but I had no idea that those were future products I could buy.

Man, I better save up now. I really need that R2.  ;D

As far as I know nothing happen at Hasbro Q&A, lucky for the Hasbro people after the joke they pulled with the "new figures" that were being release on 4-01-07.

What was really sad about that was that when they announced hood and hermie first ALOT of the audience was REALLY cheering...then when they showed all the 'death figures' following people knew it was a joke. Wonder if Hasbro noted the Fan reaction to the first 2 much demanded figures they 'joked' about and took note ::)
