We asked them about Wedge again after the Q&A, and it's sounded like a 100% done deal that this was the POTF2 version.

And they certainly know that us collectors and Wedge fans aren't going to be happy with the scenario. Most unfortunate.

Bummer Jared, but nice of you to take the time to ask the questions that matter too.

Hasbro's probably regretting that thing getting announced right prior to the show. 

Glad I didn't preorder...  The cards are nice I'm sure but not on my priority list to own, not by a longshot.  I'd love a new ROTJ Wedge and ESB Wedge, but guess they're maybe down the road figures.

Thanks Jared for the conformation. Do they have any explaination for doing this? I think it's funny that you say they knew we woudn't be happy which begs me to wonder what happens durring those proposal meetings. Does anyone stand up and say, "you know the collectors are going to piss and moan?"

Wow!

Check this out... Wedge is now up for pre-order at New Force Comics.

Wedge for $9.99 plus $4 shipping - plus, only $1 more in shipping for each additional Wedge you order.  2 shipped for $25, 3 Shipped for $36!

Case of 12 Wedge for $109.99 plus $9 shipping - that works out to $10 each including shipping!

I'm taking the gamble on Rick and Co and I orderd myself a case of 12 - $10 each shipped is a great price compared to what the other guys are charging ($13-$16).   ;D

This is very strange, 'cause the rehashed (1998) Wedge was brought up at the Comic Con Q & A (in a rather perturbed manner), but the Hasbro reps stated that's the best they could come up with for Wedge at this time.  They never mentioned, or even hinted at the possibility, that it might be a better version like this one based on Dutch.  No idea why they'd do that...

Regardless, this one's obviously much better, and I'm probably going to have to get at least 3 of them now.

Aw nuts. This was such an easy pass, and now I have to reconsider whether I want it.
