Exclusives. Love 'em or hate 'em they are currently a major part of Star Wars collecting. Collect Master Replicas? There's exclusives. Collect Sideshow? Exclusives. Collect Hasbro? Lots of exclusives. Collect Gentle Giant? Exclusives coming out of your, um, pocketbook. So what is a collector to do? The Star Wars Action News hosts are faced with this question this week.
Also this week, Wave 2 is hitting stores across the country. Which figures are the hardest to find? Find out in Star Wars Action News.
Finally, we journey back in our minds to the last year of the big 80's when Batman, not Star Wars, ruled the silver screen. What item have the hosts found to review this week?
All this, and the bi-weekly Hasbro Q&A can be found in this week's Star Wars Action News!
1) Can you share a little bit of the strategy of placing only one per case of the McQuarrie Signature Series Concept Stormtrooper in the original case release of TAC Wave 1? This figure being shortpacked has led to reports of cases being brought out from the back with the figures already gone from the cases (I have heard this from employees of Toys R Us and Target where that single figure is the only one mysteriously missing due to another employee digging it out). Even people who don't usually collect figures are buying the McQuarrie figures en masse, making this single figure very hard to find.
2) Why was Kitik Keed'Kaak's color not corrected in the Wal-Mart wave of rereleases? In the movie and cardback she is green but the figure was brown. Given that the other figures in this wave had new paint apps, why no love for Kitik?
3) Will the Toys R Us exclusive vehicles coming up have pilot figures packed in with them?
