This is the most insanely awesome thing they have put out in this line yet! Will look fantastic on the shelf with the other Rebels figures around it. I'm totally excited for this one!

That is incredibly cool.  When I saw the images of the display around Thrawn I instantly thought "Oh, exclusive, huh?"  And the pack-ins are great choices!  I can't believe they even did the Holy Grail?!!?!

Looks cool but I have been unable to get into the Hasbro line for the last 2 years and i couldn't even get a pass for SDCC this year. This one is not going to be in my collection.

This is super cool but I am strangely unmoved by it. I think environments and vehicles in the 6 inch line just don't appeal to me for some reason. I just like lining the dudes up.

Yeah this is just a random collection of junk. $50 for a Commander Gree helmet and the Holy Grail from Indiana Jones? WTF?

Love it.  They did an awesome job with the accessories and packaging.  $50 for one figure isn't even all that crazy to me with how well this is done.  On the flip side, I haven't been able to nab a SDCC exclusive on my own for several years now, so not holding my breath to luck into finding this in the 7 minute availability window.

I won't be able to get this, but it is pretty awesome. Also don't mind the trend of the exclusives being regular release figures in fancy boxes.

I haven't bought any of the 6" SDCC exclusive versions, but I may have to with Thrawn.  He was always my favourite EU character and now they've done a really cool job with him in Rebels.  The accessories and packaging are pretty amazing.

The more I see this set, the more I'm liking it.  I hope I can get this version, because the exclusive package elements are very cool.


Now I'm hearing rumors of a possible third SDCC exclusive.  It's rumored be a 6" figure 2-pack of Luke Skywalker and Rey from the final scene of The Force Awakens.  The rumor goes on to say that these two figures will also be released individually later as part of the line for The Last Jedi, since the beginning of TLJ will reportedly pick up right after the end of TFA.  We do know that there's the 6" TBS Luke Skywalker from TFA in the works, and that figure may be a part of this set.

It seems like we've had a lot of reveals on 6" figures recently.  I wonder how long until these get to retail.  I still can't find Baze and Chirrut...

You can get those two for $20ish each on EE right now.  I have an order into them with free shipping - I can try to add either or both if you want to go that route?

Or ask Matt.  He may have them.
