Sorry again, I usually just jump straight to the forums and donít check the front page as often.   :-[

Just tossing this post in here since we don't have a basic single SDCC thread...  I'll be live-posting to our front page a single and edited/updated (as info becomes more clear and comes to me via text remotely) news story on the front page.  It's going to be difficult posting here, twitter, front page, etc.  It's just too much, so I'm focusing on our front page as a place that'll have a concise list of things as they come, which is usually what I do anyway.  This is always a bit of a juggling act, plus photo editing hasn't gone smashingly for me this year either (all kinds of errors from the images Ant has been sending me, but not his fault I don't think, just software showing its age).

Fun fun fun!  Hope Hasbro has something big up its sleeves!

There are a couple of TVC exclusive figures that I'm curious about if we're looking at the number sequence (VC 136 & 137) since they ahead of the Han Solo and 41st Elite Corps Clone that were announced.

I finally got a chance to rewatch the NYCC panel today and I noticed this time that Steve Evans says that the eight TVC figures left to be revealed are all from the Original Trilogy (around the 34min mark of this video).

ANH Han, ANH Chewie, and Bespin Luke have been rumored for a long time.  Vader, Hoth Leia, and Fett were rumored earlier this spring too but those could just be the TVC re-releases they announced at NYCC.

Thoughts or guesses on who/what we're getting?  Below are the eight that are left to be revealed for Spring/Summer 2019.

Basic Figures:
2019 VC141 To Be Announced [2019 Wave 02]
2019 VC149 To Be Announced [2019 Wave 03]

Exclusives:
2019 VC136 To Be Announced [?? Exclusive]
2019 VC137 To Be Announced [?? Exclusive]
2019 VC144 To Be Announced [?? Exclusive]

2019 VCxxx To Be Announced [Convention Exclusive]
2019 VCxxx To Be Announced [Convention Exclusive]
2019 VCxxx To Be Announced [Convention Exclusive]

Sim Aloo would be a good exclusive choice.  And that's simply because I could see the potential for that figure to be a major pegwarmer in the mainline.

But donít make new ones a con exclusive, either (like they did with the Mouse Droid and Salacious Crumb though those two were simply repacks on vintage cards).  If they finally made Sim Aloo, but made limited quantities and only available at Comic Con, there would be plenty of upset people.  If theyíre just reissues of highly requested TVC figures, then the outrage would be less (hopefully)

I meant that as a retail exclusive.  People would go bananas if Sim Aloo was a con exclusive!
