2022 Convention Exclusive TVC "The Rescue" Box Set
« on: July 11, 2022, 10:43 AM »
Yakface scoop - Convention Exclusive TVC "The Rescue" Set

Yes, all repacks with new bits...

- Looks like a repack of the Maldo Kries Mandalorian (minus the snow effects) with "Have some fire and little missiles" effects plus Beskar Spear (I think the soft goods cape is the one from the Razor Crest)
- Darktrooper with "help, I'm on fire" effects
- Moff Gideon with soft goods cape
- Grogu in handcuffs

Finally, all of the repacks with slight adjustments I've been waiting for.

Do we know anything about when it'll be available to order?

Same as the Celebration stuff.  At certain times during the show, Hasbro will pass out QR code scanning thingies at SDCC.  People at the show can pick up a code, scan and pre-order at Hasbro Pulse.  There will be a pre-order window later this summer for non-attendees.  Date/Price info coming soon...

They're going to make me purchase another damn membership for Hasbro Pulse.
This is the way.

Does having a Pulse membership help you get this or is it a SDCC exclusive?  I am neither, so if anyone has info on tracking one down please share.  I think this is a great little set.  I know people hate repacks, but there's enough different here for me and I would hate these a lot more if they were 3 repacks + 1 new figure that made everyone want one.

Can't wait to shell out $80 for some fire effects... That being said I'd agree that it is a nice set for a convention exclusive. These are all nice accessories, but none that I couldn't live without if I can't end up getting one of these. I'd much prefer that to missing out a new figure I cared about.

Echoing Jman, is the pulse membership required to get one of these if you aren't going to SDCC?

Don't be absurd, you're also getting a cloth cape and some handcuffs!

Maybe they'll set aside some for premium members a few hours ahead of making them available for purchases by all. I certainly hope so since I wound up becoming  a member several months back when HasbroPulse started charging for shipping. Getting pre-orders at the time were a crap shoot at other onlines but generally pretty good on HP.

Does having a Pulse membership help you get this or is it a SDCC exclusive?

Similar to SW Celebration earlier this year, at SDCC Hasbro will hand out codes.  The code allows you to pre-order on Pulse.  There are no in-show sales this year.  After the show, a limited quantity will be available for sale to the general public.  So get a code from someone at the show or wait until the general public day.

It remains to be seen whether or not Pulse Premium helps.  The past few convention exclusive drops have come with disclaimers that Star Wars stuff was not part of the early-order window.  There was no pulse premium member advance ordering window for the SW Celebration BS6" "Jon Favreua Vizla" figure for example.

I didn't realize that.  I didn't see it and people on Yak Face's IG were complaining about there being no spear.   If it's in there, that's worth at least $50 of the price tag.

Without a Premium membership I've been able to order all the recent exclusives.  I think if you're on the ball when these are released they're actually easier to get than a Target Exclusive preorder.

It looks like it is included to me... packed behind Mando:

I think it's actually an interesting set.  And the differences between these figures and the mainline releases make this kind of cool.  My general questions?

-Are the flame effects on the Dark Trooper removable?
-Mando appears to have a number of different features.  I think the figure is the Maldo Kreis sculpt without the ice deco.  And it looks like there's a flamethrower effect / accessory, as well as the Whistling Birds accessory.  The softgood cloak is welcome, and so is the Beskar spear.  I see the jet pack and Mando's blaster in the accessories, too.  I'm curious what else is in there.

Other notes / questions?  Does the packaging folds out similar to the way the packaging for last year's TVC throne room set did?

And then?  What's the estimated delivery date?

Oh silly me for not noticing... That's a lot of entertainment-inspired accessories in one pack!!!
