I'm not really sure where to put this question, so here it'll be. Does anyone have a list of all the previous "exclusive" figures that have been issued from various screenings, conventions, and otherwise?

There's Threepio from Jedicon 2001, Jorge Sacul, and Luke from the Special Edition screening. Any more?

And what about Fan Club giveaways? Wasn't there a Mace Windu Preview as part of that? Any more?

In general, I guess I'm just interested in those items that have not been a part of general retail. Thanks. :cool:

17. Luke Skywalker Jedi Knight (ROTJ:SE giveaway)

The C-3PO was from a convention in Germany, Jedicon I think.

The Muftak and Kabe was an "Internet Exclusive". You had to order from a special website Hasbro set up.

Not sure if you would count these, but there were at least 2 figures from SHOWTIME given away to employees. They were basic POTF2 greencards with a
RED sticker that said SHOWTIME. I think the 2 were Vader and Stormtrooper. There may have been more.

Also, the "Men Behind the Masks" tour figures.
They were also basic POTF2 greencards, with a new "Holo" sticker showing the actor instead of the character.
They were David Prowse, Jeremy Bulloch, Michael Carter, Kenny Baker and Peter Mayhew. They were each autographed and #'ed.

It's Showtime!
The Showtime cable network has the exclusive rights to show the Star Wars Special Edition trilogy for now and in conjunction with that exclusive is an exclusive set of figures. Actually, these are just packaging variations (the figures look to be exactly the same as the wide relase versions). However, if you are a variation hunter or completist, this subset might be of interest to you.

The figures are POTF2 Collection 3 figures with a special sticker on the packaging. (Green card, holo sticker). On the lower part of the bubble is a sticker that says "Star Wars: Special Edition. Exclusively on Showtime" (see graphic).

At this time, it is unclear who received these figures or how many there are. The figures were sent out in bubble mailers and many arrived with crushed bubbles. Finding a mint set might prove to be difficult as it is unlikely that many of these figures will ever hit the secondary market. There are at least 5 figures in the set and possibly more. We have no concrete information on how a set could be obtained. It is unclear if this is a subscription premium, an industry-only promotional item or something altogether different.

At press time, our calls to Showtime Networks were not returned, but we will bring you more information about this exclusive as we obtain it.



Special thanks to Rob Chatlin for the photos and info

Wuher was a fan club exclusive at first, and then dumped at TRU. That's how I remember it.

B'Omarr Monk was the internet exclusive figure. Only could order it off an internet site. I didn't have internet access at the time and had a friend order it for me.

Muftak and Kabe were fan club exclusives, too.

Wasn't the Ep. 1 sneak preview Mace a Wal-Mart exclusive? Had to mail in a Wal-Mart receipt with the two proofs of purchase? I remember doing that for a figure. The receipt had to be dated between two dates to be eligible.

Don't forget the Death Star trooper and Rhee-Yees. They were both found in stores for a very brief (blink and you missed them!) time before becoming fan club exclusives.

Then's there's the 12" exclusives but we won't go there!

B'Omarr Monk was an internet exclusive and also a coupon was available in SOME packages of the Frito Lay Spirit of Obi-Wan mailaway figure. I ordered 3 of them at the time. One coupon was for $5 off any Kenner Star Wars vehicle, another for $10 off, and one for Mr. Monk.

Wal-Mart Exclusives I have no problem with, but anywhere else, and I have to order it online.:mad:

The "green" C-3PO was a POFT2 red carded figure with THX insert that was released in Japan. I don't think it was meant as an exclusive, I think they were just a bad paint batch.

Actually the Wal Mart exclusive was the POF2 poster promotion. It was 2 UPC's and the receipt. The Mace Windu promotion was 6 UPC's and a receipt from any retail store.

Do you want to count the Star Tours figures?

This is getting ugly.:Pirate:

As for the "Showtime" figures, it would be easier (and cheaper) to have the red stickers made and attatch them yourself than to find even one MOMC!

There are literally hundreds, if not thousands of packaging variations out there. It would be impossible to list 'em all.

I remember some cool Fett art variation cards sold at conventions a few years back. Some guy bought a bunch and had 'em on ebay for $100.00+ each.:rolleyes:
