Title: Official C4 non-attendees beg for exclusive **** thread
Post by: Mikey D on February 23, 2007, 11:23 AM
Like me, I'm sure there are people not attending the Celebration 4 festivities and need help acquiring any exclusive stuff companies will probably have.  Post your lists here and hopefully those people going will be nice enough to help out.

My list (and I'll update as we find out more info):
1.  Acme's exclusive character key (whomever it might be) - sounds like it might be a pre-order for those attending which should make it fairly easy to abtain.  No waiting in line hopefully. - Already pre-ordered
2.  Gentle Giant animated R2 / Yoda maquette
3.  McQuarrie R2-D2 / C-3PO x2
4.  McQuarrie Luke x2

Post by: Morgbug on February 23, 2007, 12:22 PM
Heh, at least someone else started it :P  I may, or may not be going, it is undecided but leaning towards not attending, so I'll jump in here:

1. Acme exclusive character key
2. Gentle Giant Commander Gree bust
3. Gentle Giant exclusive bustup - I'm guessing here
4. Hasbro exclusive McQuarrie R2/3PO 2-pack (2)
5. Hasbro exclusive titanium 3" ship - the gold Jedi starfighter is inevitable
6. Gentle Giant R2-D2/Yoda animated maquette
7. Master Replicas Wedge Antilles scaled helmet

I'll happily provide moolah in advance.

Same with me, I have always tried to help out those who couldn't go so I shouldn't stop now.  As long as I get my stuff and (possbly my cousin) I will help out anyone else here.

Post by: evenflow on March 2, 2007, 01:14 PM
Well since people are asking i am interested in:

Hasbro C-3PO/R2-D2
Gentle Giant Yoda/R2 maquette
Sideshow 12 inch Yavin Luke
Title: Re: Official C4 non-attendees beg for exclusive **** thread
Post by: Rob on March 14, 2007, 10:27 PM
I'm looking for the Commander Gree and Darth Malak Mini Busts.  I'll also be looking for a total of 3 of whatever Hasbro is offering, 2 for myself and 1 for a buddy.

Dale's offered to help me out, but if anyone else is going and waiting in that line and NOT buying them, let me know - I'd love to get an extra Gree/Malak or two to try to trade for the other two busts that will be Japan and UK exclusives later in the year 

PM me.   :)
Title: Re: Official C4 non-attendees beg for exclusive **** thread
Post by: Mikey D on March 15, 2007, 10:51 AM
Updated my list.

From what I've been reading, it sounds like the Acme key might be a pre-order for pick up at the show.  Hopefully that's true as it greatly reduces the hassle involved.

Post by: jadesfire on March 16, 2007, 11:52 AM
I'll do wahtever I can for all of you but the down side is you might have to pay a little extra for postage as there is no way I can bring all this stuff back in two suitcases.  I "might" just have to ship it from LA (assuming the convention will have a shipping center set up)....unless someone else takes it after I buy it.  I guess we'll have to see how it all works out as it draws closer.  I drove to C2 and C3, so that was easy to buy extra...this will be more challenging!!

Title: Re: Official C4 non-attendees beg for exclusive **** thread
Post by: evenflow on March 16, 2007, 01:39 PM
Always nice when someone is willing to help.  ;D I don't want to speak for everyone, but postage is not an issue for me. I assume most would feel the same way.
Title: Re: Official C4 non-attendees beg for exclusive **** thread
Post by: Mikey D on March 16, 2007, 08:40 PM
I'll gladly pay shipping from LA and am willing to throw in a bit extra for the trouble to anyone that's able to help me out.

Title: Re: Official C4 non-attendees beg for exclusive **** thread
Post by: Rob on March 16, 2007, 09:34 PM
I'm gladly in for whatever shipping costs.

Post by: MetalJedi on March 17, 2007, 04:32 PM
Since I live the area I'll try to get extras of the Hasbro stuff and see if I can get a couple of the GG Maquettes since I have no interest in that one. As for busts I may see if I can get an extra of each one but it all depends on how many people I can get to go with me that doesn't collect.
Title: Re: Official C4 non-attendees beg for exclusive **** thread
Post by: JesseVader08 on March 17, 2007, 08:48 PM

Post by: Morgbug on March 19, 2007, 01:40 PM
Just remember, I'm making stuff up/guessing as to what will be there.  With respect to the Hasbro stuff, I'm not sweating too much as I expect anything from them to be at the online store in time.  Geez, I still have 2-3 extra CIII Vaders around here somewhere.  It's crazy man.  Crazy.

Also note I'm realistic in my expectations based on what happened at CIII.  I hope they figure out a better system than the mad dash approach, so if I get shut out on everything, so be it, there'll be no gnashing of teeth. 
Title: Re: Official C4 non-attendees beg for exclusive **** thread
Post by: Mikey D on March 19, 2007, 01:51 PM
Agreed with Brent.  I'm not going to lose sleep if I miss anything. 

Sidewshow is setting aside some of the Yavin Luke for non-attendees.  I had no problem acquiring the Sith Anakin from C3 and I'd imagine Luke will be no different.

It sounds like Acme is also taking the necessary steps to get a key into the hands of everyone who wants one, attendee or not.

We'll see what Gentle Giant has to offer with regards to service.

Post by: Rob on March 19, 2007, 06:43 PM
I'll lose a little sleep over the Gree and Malak Busts - only because I know they'll cost $100 each later on.  I'm also a little concerned about the Japanese and UK Clone Busts, so multiple Gree busts would help me not lose as much sleep over those. :)  The Hasbro thing, depending on what it is, I'm not worried about.  Talking Vader just takes up space as far as I'm concerned. if they actually make something cool on the other hand...

No pressure of course, I'm very grateful for any and all help.   :)

Really!  This time I won't have my muscular "front man" to get me to where I want to be - so I'm screwed if that is the approach  ;)

Post by: evenflow on March 19, 2007, 10:46 PM
I will probably lose a little sleep. I have hope with Sideshow and Hasbro offering stuff online, but the R2 Yoda Maquette may prove to be more difficult.

I always look at Con exclusives a little differently I guess.  If I were going, what would a one day pass cost?  What would a four day pass cost?  How much is my time worth to stand in line for four hours before the doors open so I can run in and stand in another line to see guys that weren't in the line and miraculously seem to be in front of me now?  $100 for a Con exclusive doesn't bother me a single bit to be completely honest.  I'm all for paying $55-60 instead of course, but I can justify the other costs pretty easily. 

As for the Japan/England exclusives, well, I have a shot at the one from Japan thanks to a friend there, but the one from England I'm hooped on.  I'm just not obsessed about being a completeist with anything, anymore.  I want 'em all, but I'm not about to obsess (he says now, knowing he'll eat his words later).

Post by: Mikey D on April 2, 2007, 09:50 PM
Updated my list to add the 3PO/R2 McQuarrie two pack.
Title: Re: Official C4 non-attendees beg for exclusive **** thread
Post by: Rob on April 3, 2007, 10:21 AM
Yeah - me too.

Go figure they put out a lame repacked Vader with a voice box when I go, but when I can't it's an awesome two pack of never before seen figures.

I need 2 for myself, and one for a friend if anyone's able to get extras.

So the list looks like this, in order of importance:

1 Gree Mini Bust
1 Malak Mini Bust
Up to 3 Artoo/Threepio Concept Figures
And extra Malaks and Grees if possible for trade bait.

Post by: Darth Kenobi on April 4, 2007, 09:43 AM
I think its going be a limit of 4 figures for the entire show, per badge.  I assume that since the have the 4 imperial symbols like the, C3 badges  did, again.

Do we know what the purchase limit is going to be each day on the McExclusives?

From the StarWars.com (http://www.starwars.com/community/event/celebration/news20070402.html#hljs) story:

"For Celebration IV, quantities of the action figures will be limited per person, based on which admission badge is purchased. Those purchasing 4-day badges will be able to purchase four of the droid figure packs, while supplies last. There are four Imperial symbols on the bottom left of the 4-day badge; these symbols will be punched to show the number of action figures purchased. Those with 1-day badges have one Imperial symbol on their badges, and can purchase one figure pack. Badges will be punched at time of purchase."

http://www.jedidefender.com/yabbse/index.php?topic=14957.msg294442#msg294442

This is getting out of hand.

I need 2 to 3 of these too if at all possible - but the list is getting so long it's understandable that some of it might not be attainable.

1 GG Malak
1 GG Gree
1 GG Yoda
3 Hasbro McQuarrie Luke's
3 Hasbro McQuarrie Droids.

One giant hole in the wallet.   :P

Any of these that are offered for sale on-line I'll order and scratch off the want-list.

Cool guys - I'm completely good to send money whenever you have a total of whatever I owe you.

Let me ask you this out of curiosity.  For us guys in the states, are you planning on trying to ship from California, or are you taking everything back to Canada and shipping internationally once you're home?  I'd expect that getting all that stuff through customs would be a pain in the ass.

Title: Re: Official C4 non-attendees beg for exclusive **** thread
Post by: Deanpaul on April 10, 2007, 02:48 AM
I know this could get out of hand, but I'd really like the McQuarrie R2/3PO and the McQuarrie Luke if it's possible.  If not, I totally understand.  There's no way I can make it to C4.

Post by: Brian on April 10, 2007, 09:22 AM
I know that there's probably going to be a lot of people wanting help with the great exclusives this year, but I'll add my name to the list of people hoping for a set of the McQuarrie R2/3PO and Luke figures.  I had actually hoped to get two of each of the McQuarrie figures this year (1 set to keep carded with the spiffy cardbacks), but at this point I'd be happy to at least get one of each.  If anyone is able to help, that's great, but hopefully everyone can just enjoy the show too - and not spend the whole time standing in line :).  It is great that we have such a nice community here where people want to try to help each other out - thanks to everyone for at least attempting to cover people if possible.

That's a damn good question and something I hadn't thought about.  I don't know how we'd get all that stuff across the border without paying duty. 

I think the best thing to do is have everyone PM me their shipping address before CIV starts and I will plan to ship things out while still in California.  It'll making shipping prices cheaper too, although I'll probably have to buy shipping supplies (boxes, padding, etc).

I'd better buy some caffeine pills because I don't think I'll be sleeping for 5 days during CIV!  :D

You could also have people who live in the area (SoCal) mail them out for you as will.  Could be a little easier since you won't miss the convention while packaging stuff/shipping it out, especially since you only have 3 days in which the PO is open and there could be some issues with the UPS store that the con may have.  Last year I ended up getting someone else's stuff.

ETA: Who is planning/knows there are going to the convention.  That way we could start to plan on how much extra stuff we can have for other's here.

I'm looking for 1 - (preferrably 2) of the McQuarrie R2/3PO and the McQuarrie Luke if anybody can help me out.  :-*  We only have one member of the MN clan attending so most of us will be at a loss.
Title: Re: Official C4 non-attendees beg for exclusive **** thread
Post by: jadesfire on April 10, 2007, 05:41 PM
I am hoping for on site shipping from C4.  If anything, I will send my box back to Ohio and then sort it out from there.  I know that I won't ship anything to Canada directly due to the insane custom fees.  I would prefer to ship everyone's loot instead of stuffing it in my suitcase since I trust the airline less than the post office.    :-\

I am sure I will meet up with everyone throughout the weekend so we should be able to get everyone's stuff sorted into their respective piles and figure it out from there.  I also assume I will be able to buy as many Luke's as I want and they will only punch my badge for C3PO/R2D2.

My only question/concern is I will have all these boxes/carded figures/pictures and stuff - how am I suppose to carry it around all day??  At the other conventions, I had Jay (my pack mule) and he just carried it all and when he was sick of carrying it, he walked across the street to dump it off and then came back.  C4 doesn't have a skywalk and I am quite sure that the hotel I am at is a a bit of a walk.  What did everyone else do?  How did you all carry your stuff around?  Do I need a backpack or just bring my rolling suitcase and stuff it full?

Title: Re: Official C4 non-attendees beg for exclusive **** thread
Post by: DSJ™ on April 10, 2007, 06:39 PM
As far as I know, the convention centre has no lockers. At C3, I had small day pack so I could carry the loot around plus snacks & drink. I expect the prices for snacks/drink to be high as usual.  ::)

The Wilshire Grand is approx 0.9 of a mile. The Holiday Inn where Jesse & I are staying is 0.2 of a mile so we run across the street & drop stuff off & run back.

The maps below should help you out planning any walking routes needed. 

This PDF map shows downtown hotels & more (http://www.seemyla.com/pdf/dthotel.pdf)

Interactive downtown L.A. Map (http://www.downtownla.com/map6.htm)

I think there was an area in the centre at C3 where you could mail stuff out, not sure about this centre tho. The hotel Bob & I stayed at had a UPS store around the corner so we mailed most of our stuff back & Bob lost 1 item.  :-\

Yep, customs up here is a killer. Smaller items (loose figures) that can fit in a jacket pocket well no claim. :-X  ;D

But yeah, mailing stuff out from the US would be better.

I'm going to have to add my name to the list for the ACME Character Key - Grand Moff Tarkin.  Of course, the Hasbro McQuarrie figures are the priority for me, but I'm hoping to try and keep up with these OT character keys - so I'll add my name to that list if anyone is able to help out.  Thanks again.

Post by: jadesfire on April 29, 2007, 09:57 PM
So-what's the breakdown of where all this exclusive stuff is at?

Star Wars Store = C3PO and R2D2??  Boba Fett Animated Maquette??

Hasbro Booth = Luke??

Gentle Giant = The Busts and Bust-ups along with the Yoda Maquette??

Sideshow = 12" Luke

Acme = character keys

I kind of need to know if I should go to the GG booth first or the Store (the Boba Fett Maquette is the top priority item).

Also - does GG punch your badge???

I'll just link the RS thread here Beth, hopefully that will help out a bit.  :)

Convention Exclusives List (http://threads.rebelscum.com/showflat.php?Cat=&Number=2536397&page=0&view=collapsed&sb=5&o=&fpart=1#2536397)

GG pre-orders will go live 2 weeks before the convention, if you have a Gentle Giant's Collector Club or Premiere Membership then you're set.

One member in the thread mentions that the Boba maquette will be $79.99 as per the new issue of Insider.

Also the Kotobukiya Exclusive Spirit of the Force Yoda  (http://www.figures.com/databases/action.cgi?setup_file=fignews2.setup&category=actionfigures&topic=105&show_article=167&nl=1) will be available & run $60.

May 24th 500 pieces (Star Wars Fan Club Day)
May 25th 300 pieces
May 26th 200 pieces
May 27th 100 pieces

Purchases will be limited to only 3 toys per person, but there will be no individual limit on Star Wars Fan Club Day. Yoda will retail for $60 and will be available at Kotobukiya’s booth #921.

I was listening to last Friday's "ForceCast" from TF.N, and they have an interview with Steve Sansweet - and he mentions that on the first day (Fan Day) that Fan Club members can buy five of the McQuarrie Droids set at once.  I guess there are four punches on the badget normally, but they'll allow you to buy five if you want/need to.  People who are going probably understand the badge thing better than I do, but I thought I'd pass it along in case anyone was interested.

That good to know since we should get that they will allow us five if we go on the fifth day seeing how the limit is 1 per day.

Thanks for the link Dale.  Now, I have another question (or two).  Just where IS the Star Wars Shop store?? It's not usually inside the Exhibit Hall (and really couldn't be if it is open 24 hours a day) and I am assuming that both McQuarrie figures are going to be sold at Hasbro's booth and NOT in the store like I originally thought??  The link states they are Hasbro items but I could of swore that C3PO/R2 were Star Wars Shop items and not available at the Hasbro booth.

Oh well, I guess I need to find out where the Star Wars store is since that will be my first line for Thursday.... :-\

The McQuarrie Luke (http://www.starwars.com/collecting/news/hasbro/news20070409.html) will be available at the Hasbro Toy Shop booth #513 in the Exhibitors Hall (http://www.gencon.com/2007/swciv/exhibitors/default.aspx). The McQuarrie R2-D2 & C-3PO (http://www.starwars.com/community/event/celebration/news20070402.html#hljs) will be available at the Celebration IV Store a different location in the center which is open 24hrs.

The Star Wars Shop store is #419 which I think is separate from these exclusives.

This is what I have read over at RS from one of the Admins:

I've heard that we should see a map and schedule approx. 2 weeks before the show. They should have 90% of the events and contracts in place by then.

Well it looks like instead of trying to pick up exclusives for people, I'll instead be begging for them like everyone else.  ;)  With our baby arriving not long after CIV, my wifey and I have decided it's just a little too close for comfort, especially if there's any complications.  The right decision to make, but still a tough thing to miss out on.

So, anyone going to try for the exclusive Koto Yoda with voice chip and light-up feature?

Sure-promise us a round of beers and then don't show up.... :-*

So now I get to shadow Dale and Bob....the Canadian count is sure slipping fast.

Your bust-ups shouldn't be a problem and if we can pick up five of each figure on Thursday, I really think everyone that is going might be able to fill the action figure list here or close to it.  I wish I knew about that fast-pass thing though, now I get to stand in the four hour line instead :P

Now that I've seen it, I'd like to; it would look pretty sweet on top of the TV in my SW room.  But with those quantities and purchase limits, I doub't I'll get one.  I signed up for the first store fast path slot, so if I go there first, I'll likely miss out on the dealer's room exclusives.  I guess I could try for the Yoda first and then head for the store since my fast pass is good from noon until 3 PM.  I guess we'll see.

ETA: If anyone else is planning to head straight to the... whatever booth these light-up Yoda doo-dads are sold at on Thursday morning, and you'd be willing to snag a second one for me, I will gladly get the money to you prior to that morning.  Please let me know.  Thanks!

Post by: evenflow on May 8, 2007, 03:26 PM
I know alot of here want some GG prduct, so here is what they had to say:

"Exclusives Information

We will start taking pre-orders for the following Star Wars Celebration IV 2007 Exclusives on Thursday May 10th.  An email with the links and information will be sent out on Thursday, May 10th:

Commander Gree mini bust - pre-order quantity - 800 pieces - $50
Darth Malak mini bust - pre-order quantity - 800 pieces - $50
Spirit of Yoda mini bust - pre-order quantity - 800 pieces - $50
Star Wars Animated Yoda and R2-D2 Maquette - pre-order quantity - 100 pieces - $75
Luke and Han in Stormtrooper Disguise Bust-Up 2-pack - pre-order quantity - 100 pieces - $10

* Please note - price reflects item price plus tax.


Only a portion of the total edition size will be available for pre-orders. We will be selling the balance of the convention exclusives at our booth (901) on a first come, first serve basis.  We will have an allocation of quantity to sell by day, so that those who will just be attending the last days of the show have the same opportunity as those who will just be attending the first days of the show. Limit one of each item, per person.


*PLEASE READ BEFORE PLACING PRE-ORDER*
The following measures are in effect in an effort to make these items as widely available as possible:

* You must be logged into your collector's club account (regular or premiere guild) to place convention pre-order.
*Do not place a pre-order if you will not be attending Star Wars Celebration IV.
*Limit one pre-order per person.
*Limit one of each item per pre-order.
*Must bring printout of Confirmation email with order number and a valid photo ID to convention center to pick up order.  Name/address on photo ID must match name on order confirmation, or you will not be able to pick up order.
*Pre-Orders can only be picked up at the Gentle Giant Booth (901) - There will be a separate line for those who have pre-ordered for pick-up.
*If you already pre-ordered the exclusives, you may not get a second of any of the exclusive items, as all badges will be punched when your pre-order is picked up.

For our club members who will not be able to attend the Star Wars Celebration IV, we will be holding a portion of the above exclusives for sale through our website after the conventions are over.  An email will be sent out when they will be made available."

I wonder how the animated Boba Fett will be handled.

I wonder how the animated Boba Fett will be handled.

I'm just guessing here, but given SWS.com didn't exist at the last Celebration, they're probably going in blind and without a plan.  As a result of that I'd expect a free for all not at all unlike the Gentle Giant approach at CIII.  So if you're outside the exhibition hall and first in line, expect to be about #200 in line when you get in the doors ;)  I think they might be smart enough to have an alotment for each day but don't expect that to last more than five minutes after the doors open, if there are any even left.

You are right, but I wrote what I meant poorly.  Indeed it did exist even three years ago (http://www.jedidefender.com/yabbse/index.php?topic=3914.0) but they were not in attendance with a booth at C-III.  So my meaning was that they haven't been there physically and experienced the joy of the mad rush for exclusives at a Celebration.  No booth presence at CIII = inexperience at CIV and probably be just like the GG booth was at CIII.

Well, you must have had one too many beers or something because they were at Celebration III (http://www.starwars.com/collecting/shop/shopnews/news20050407.html).

Granted, they didn't have anything for sale there, but they were there with signings and freebies (those little red wristband dealies).   ;)

Is that where we got the posters?  No, that was the Hasbro booth with the free Attacktix right? 

Yeah, must have been too much beer, I have exactly zero recollection of those guys being there.  Well, I'll further ammend my statement to match yours.  They were there and didn't sell anything leaving them still unprepared for this year.

Dan,
I placed an order for jadesfire with GG.  She/I are splitting the order sort of and she/I ordered one of each. 

Edit: I clicked on Jeff's link and now I remember because they had the holo-Leia figure so they were near the front of the room a couple of booths over from Gentle Giant.  Not that memorable I guess :P

I got one of everything except the Yoda-R2 maquette for a collector friend in the UK.  Fortunately he didn't want one of the Yoda-R2 maquettes because it sold out long before I could get my order to process.

Now I think I can finally relax for the next two weeks.

If the ACME item shows up for pre-order, I'll try to snag that beforehand.  I really want the Koto Yoda and am torn between which booth to go to first:  sws.com, Hasbro or Koto.  They are all close to each other so it will be a toss up as to which line looks the shortest.

I'll have to stand in the regular store line (I still can't believe I never knew about that fast-pass) and hope that all the female shirts and pins aren't sold out after my shift ends at 8:30 on Thursday. 

I am just hoping Master Replica gets their head out of their ass and lets us pre-order.  It's not that hard for them to do.  Otherwise, it's another line decision I have to make  :-\.

Thanks again to Brent for fighting the GG server and getting me Yoda.  :)

From Morly at RS on the Tarkin preorder:

Quote
OK, THIS IS IT, GUYS:

The 200 keys for NON-ATTENDEES will go on sale Tuesday, May 15th, at 10am, PST. Again, PLEASE do not buy one of these if you are going to the show. It's kind of a crappy thing to do since you have an opportunity to get one from a much larger pool of keys!

The pre-order for ATTENDEES to pick up their keys at the show will take place two days later, Thursday, May 17th, at 10am.

We have set up a new site to take care of all of this. The site can be found at the following address:

Character Key Website (http://characterkey.com)

Good luck to everyone!

Attendee Pre-Order Information

The Grand Moff Tarkin Character Key will be available for pre-order for customers attending Celebration IV. Attendee pre-orders can only be picked up at our booth (#404) and will not be shipped. Orders not picked up by 12 noon on Monday, May 24th will be canceled and offered to walk-up attendees on a first come, first serve basis. Please bring your order receipt with you when picking up. Celebration IV begins Thursday, May 24th and ends Monday, May 28th. We hope to see you there.
 
Non-Attendee Pre-Order Information

For our customers not attending Celebration IV, Acme will make available a quantity of 200 character keys for order online. These keys will not ship until June 1st.
 
There is a limit of one (1) piece per person - either Attendee or Non-Attendee. Please do not order from both pre-sales as we will be cross-referencing the lists in order to enforce the limit of one per person. Non-Attendee orders will not be available for pick up at our booth. There is an additional $3.00 shipping and handling flat fee for our Non-Attendee orders. Finally, PLEASE do not order one of the 200 Non-Attendee character keys if you are in fact going to attend Celebration IV. Thank you.

200 eh, this is going to go fast!  :-\
Title: Re: Official C4 non-attendees beg for exclusive **** thread
Post by: jadesfire on May 12, 2007, 07:00 PM
I've been scrolling around various threads and can't seem to find the answer.  Is there an alloted amount of McQuarrie figures (the droids) for the Celebration Store each day?  Since it is open 24 hours I am hoping the answer is no (escpecially on Fan Club day).  I guess if you have a really late fast path, it would be pointless if they didn't let you get your four figures right?  So I am hoping the same is true for the regular line.  I know at C3 (and I think C2), they only sold around 10,000 per day and once those were gone - you were screwed(for that day anyways).

I guess I have the same question for the Hasbro Luke figure....any idea if there is a set limit to sell each day???

I already know the quantities on the KOTO Yoda, MR items, sws.com Fett, ACME frame just not the figures...
Title: Re: Official C4 non-attendees beg for exclusive **** thread
Post by: JediMAC on May 12, 2007, 07:10 PM
Beth, I seem to recall seeing that the droids would be limited, I think to four per badge again like last time (or one per each day's individual badge), but that no limits had been put on the Luke figure (yet).  I could be mistaken, but I'm pretty sure that's what I recall hearing somewhere when these were first announced...
Title: Re: Official C4 non-attendees beg for exclusive **** thread
Post by: DSJ™ on May 12, 2007, 09:03 PM
Yeah, nothing I have seen on a set limit on the Luke figure thus far.  :-\

Not sure if anyone saw this but Kotobukiya is also have an R2-D2 Kiriko Glassware (http://www.figures.com/databases/action.cgi?setup_file=cjtnews2.setup&category=cooljt&topic=3&show_article=37) in addition to the Yoda: Spirit of the Force ARTFX Statue.

Due to the complex production involved in creating this glassware, only a small quantity (less than 200 pieces) of the R2 Kiriko Glass will be available at Star Wars Celebration IV. The glass will retail for $35.00 and can be found exclusively at the Kotobukiya booth (#921).

This will make a nice addition to the bar.  8)
Title: Re: Official C4 non-attendees beg for exclusive **** thread
Post by: jadesfire on May 12, 2007, 09:30 PM
Oh, I think I wrote my question wrong.  I know it is a limit of four per badge (five actually for those of us going on Fan Club day - that's a direct quote).  I meant, if I wander over to the store at 9pm on Thursday, is it even worth my time because they probably went through "x" amount of figures by then??  At C3 - they ran out a few hours after they opened (they didn't really run out but they hit their alloted 10,000/day limit).  I can't find a number that they plan on selling per day anywhere so I am extremely hopeful that if I stand in the line for 4-6 hours, at least I'll get my limited number of droid figures.

Dale - now it's almost a no-brainer....I guess I hit the KOTO booth first thing.  I hope they limit these to two per person (at most).

Yeah, I heard it was USCwannabe.  Dustin is currently disputing it.



I would hope that Hasbro has enough brains by now to make so freaking many of these McQ figures that they don't have to allocate them to a certin amount each day.  Even if they didn't, IMO the allocation should not start until the convention is open to the general public at 10 AM on Friday.  If they bring 100,000 figures and go through 50,000 of those on FC day, so be it.  One of the perks of FC membership should be being able to buy these figures on FC day. 

So, while I don't know for sure, I sure think the McQ figures will be available in the store throughout the night Thursday night.

It looks like I should be set on the Character Key as well, so I'm just looking for the McQuarrie figures now if anyone is able to help.

You know what, I've decided that I want 2 of both the Hasbro C-3PO/R2-D2 set and the Luke exclusives. So whoever will be getting everything, mucho thanks in advance! :)

Changed my mind again, I only want one of each. I'll take my chances on the secondary markets if I ever decide for a carded set of McFigures.

Well I can't make the show afterall.  Which kind of ticks me off but oh well.   If anyone could pick me up 1 Mc Luke and 1 Mc Droids set that would be greatly appreciated.  I don't expect it but it's worth a shot!  To be honest I'd rather have 2 of each if possible.  I got a funny feeling even 1 is probably going to be tough.

Woeful non-attendee Spuffy would LOVE if someone could help him out with one each of the following:

McLuke
Mc3-PO and R2

I will cover cost and shipping and also be indebted to you lots and lots.   :)

Post by: Darth Broem on May 24, 2007, 08:57 AM
If anyone saw my original post I just want 1 set of each.  I don't want anymore than 1 set.  Now that the prices came out my wife would kill me if I got 2 sets.  LOL!

Brian,

Pretty sure we got you covered for a set.  I'll PM you once it is confirmed.

I'd like to get Luke & the Droids. A member is possibly getting Luke for me...we'll see. I'd also love some of the coins they're handing out; the 30th one and the vintage style ones!
Title: Re: Official C4 non-attendees beg for exclusive **** thread
Post by: DoctorPadawan on May 26, 2007, 11:46 AM
Is there a chance that, in addition to the previously requested (on page 2 or 3, I think) McQuarrie Luke and Droids sets, someone could get me one of those 30th Anniversary coins that Hasbro is giving away?  PLEEEEEEASE?   :)

Managed to grab the concept Luke online, so now I just down to the droids and animated Yoda and R2
Title: Re: Official C4 non-attendees beg for exclusive **** thread
Post by: Brian on May 26, 2007, 05:27 PM
I grabbed the Luke(s) online as well, with the free shipping/discount code I figured it couldn't hurt.  I hope people didn't go through too much trouble helping everyone here, since they turned out to be available online as well.
Title: Re: Official C4 non-attendees beg for exclusive **** thread

I got the Luke online as well. You can cross that one off for me.

Got my Luke online, just need those McDroids.  Would be very grateful to any kind person who helped me out.   :)

I ordered Luke today. I believe someone is giving me the free Hasbro 30TH coin, and I understand the "vintage" coins are not plausible acquisitions, LOL. So, that leaves McQ Droids on my want list.

I wish I had known about this thread sooner, I would have asked if someone could have picked up a couple of droid packs and a Gree bust! Oh well, I'm definitely going to try to get Cody from SDCC. Or maybe I'll just try to make it there myself!

You can take my droid packs - assuming they came through.  We had one local MN boy who actually came through with a ton of extras.

+1. Our boy came through better than expected with all those "limitations" of 1 per day on the droid.

Just got back from C4 and have extra Lukes for people.  5 are in good conditon one got crashed (bubble and card) so it only good for someone who needs to open.  PM me if anyone wants one.  The Price will be for retail (14.99 plus tax). 

I will have some Droids as will later.

I had two Lukes preordered through HTS, but we'll see how that goes now with the news on the front page.  If someone has them picked up for us anyways, I'll probably just cancel the HTS nonsense.  I'm guessing we won't end up getting free shipping out of the deal either yet.  Thanks to everyone for their help with the exclusives.

Has there been any word on what people were able to pick up?  I'm sure everyone is still recovering from the weekend, and that is totally understandable.  I was just curious if I should try to pick up the exclusives online as they pop up this week.  Either way, thanks to everyone for all of the work trying to help everyone here out - it sounds like it wasn't exactly a picnic again this time around and hopefully it didn't ruin anyone's weekends.

I have an extra Concept 3P0 and R2 if anyone needs it. It will be $25.50 shipped or I'll trade for 2 VTSC/VTAC Snowtroopers. PM me if interested.
Title: Re: Official C4 non-attendees beg for exclusive **** thread
Post by: jadesfire on May 29, 2007, 04:50 PM
Brian- I bought extra's and am more than happy to ship some your way!!  It's great that they offered them online but kills all of us that stocked up to help.  Also, we were forced to pay sales tax as well so for the Luke, it's $16.23 and the droids are $21.64. 

No worries if you don't need them (that is for everyone here), as I am sure someone will want them down the road.  I also realize that it is impossible not to grab them when they are available online.  I couldn't really guarantee anyone that I would be able to get what they wanted until I got to the convention (I certainly didn't know Luke was limited to 6 per line visit!!). 

Oh well - the ones I do have (just so you know) come in a star case and the cards and cases are mint.

Ya, I'm feeling kinda guilty that I asked for the site's help with getting these exclusives, but I honestly didn't think they'd be avaiable online, nor did I expect for 1 Minnesotan out of our group to help all the rest of us with the Droids...I think he pulled 20+ of those.

That being said - I'll still be more than happy to pick up the stuff I asked for, but I'm sure that there are others out there that don't even have anything yet.

Just let us know what the tally and what not is when everybody gets settled.  :)
Title: Re: Official C4 non-attendees beg for exclusive **** thread
Post by: jadesfire on May 29, 2007, 05:33 PM
I don't want anyone to feel guilty - please...that is not what I meant at all.  I would have ordered online also (just to make sure) and I have no doubt I will be able to sell the ones I have to those that missed the online sale.  I'd rather have everyone be able to get one that have to try and decide who to sell the extra's too!!

I didn't, however, get anything extra besides figures.  The KOTO Yoda was cash only as well as the R2 glass they offered.  GG was a nightmare line (as always) and SS was all pre-order.  And the sws.com line.....hahahahahaha...yah-good luck on THAT one!!!

I assume some of the celebration store stuff will show up online so it's basically those coins from the collector panels that will be the 'hot' item (IMHO) besides that Fett maquette.

If there is a leftover Threepio/R2 and Luke after all the folks on the list get theirs, I have a friend who is looking for these, and I'd be happy to take an extra set in addition to my one of each for him.

I ordered the droids (and Luke) online as well, just in case, but if there are lots here that people picked up for everyone - I can always cancel the orders.  Like others, I'd feel bad if people spent their whole weekend waiting in line for those of us here - only for us to be able to pick these things up online.  Is there a tally of how many "extra" sets people were able to pick up - I'd hate for people to be stuck with extras, especially since they are so pricey.
