While we're still waiting for an official announcement, I'm willing to bet that the SDCC version will just have special packaging and maybe an exlcusive Han in Carbonite. I am pretty sure there will still be a retail version of Boba Fett.
Maybe the only difference will be the colors of his costume. Empire vs Jedi. Time will tell!
Either way, you guys are totally right...Hasbro's SDCC exclsuives are the hardest to get. I didn't even bother with them last year, because even though I'm at SDCC I just don't have the time to wait in 2 lines for several hours just for a chance to get the exclusives.
So I'm definitely holding out hope Fett will also be a retail figure.
Given how the announcement is worded I'm sure the only thing distinguishing the SDCC exclusive as exclusive is the fact it has special packaging and comes with carbonite Han. They're never going to keep a fan-favorite like Fett exclusive, no way. So don't worry about it, there'll be a regular version soon enough.
Just make sure you support the line at retail so it lasts long enough.
Heck yeah Fett will be available later. It's be like throwing money away otherwise. A good SDCC version would really be Holiday Special or prototype (toy or costume!) colors.
The problem for me is it may be the only way to get Han in Carbonite.....which is one I really want....lol
I imagine the SDCC version's block will be a simple block. Hasbro would likely make a true figure of Han with the block later, possibly with different deco (melting, transluscent like the vintage version, something).
Or for a future Han they could maybe release one where you clip the figure into the back or something, if this one is a solid piece.
Speaking of Jabba, I damn well hope Oola doesn't become a future SDCC exclusive.
So I'm looking forward to this line. So many SW characters I'd love to have in 6" scale. Interested to see what the other four in 2013 will be.
Also, what's the deal with Maul's head on the cloaked version? Does it move at all or is it all one peice?
Anyone know when these will start hitting store shelves or online store pre-orders?
