SDCC 2013
« on: May 29, 2013, 12:51:17 PM »
First glimpse of a Star Wars exclusive.
Couldn't Hasbro have done something better for one of the BIGGEST conventions of the year!?!
These things are still sitting on the shelves.

I guess they think that they just slap them on a vintage card and everything will be better ::)

Taking the 3 3/4 figures off the vintage cards and putting these things on them is a slap in the face to SW collectors

I totally agree, so the game was popular? We get that & that many of them? I get a set or 2? but this is ridiculous.
I have NOTHING Angry Birds & never will...

At 2 bucks a piece is what I figured up so thats NOT that bad of a price. Now if they are $25 a piece then thats over priced and I'd say to anyone pass on that cause thats over a C-note to own the complete set. I'd say PASS for me but for someone that LOVES these type of things then I say go for it.

So I'm guessing that the "Carbon-Freeze Chamber" was a better SW exclusive at SDCC  ;D

It would be nice to see real SW & not Angry Birds crossovers. That is a waste of a SDCC ex.
Black Series is cool, but NO Angry Birds...

What a joke for a Starwars Exclusive this year. Hasblo has done it again. Very Big Disappointment They Are! Mickey and the gang not helping too.
I am not collecting too much anymore just going to fill holes in my collection from the last few years. Either though the Kmart exclusive Ewok set I would like to have this year.

Did anyone else feel let down by the hasbro announcements this year?  I hope more is shown at CE2 but still expected to see more today.
Is it time to go home yet?

YES!! It seems lacking? Almost like they do not know what they will do? not clearly any way?
Any chance we can ask Hasbro for a release time line for future waves? or general idea of their distribution plans for 2013-2014?

I bet next year & every year from here on out will be SW HEAVY..If Disney keeps their promises?
Will be interesting to see what will be? & if SS, GG, Hasbro etc.. can keep up? if we can?
Enjoy this last quiet year..

Hasbro answer our questions, that is a joke. Hasbro is spending more money to Disney now. No wonder SW toys are higher priced. Here is the article.
