Now you've seen the selection. what are your thoughts. complaints (distribution aside that is) and which will you be buying if any?

For me, it has to be the poster art set of Han, Chewie, Threepio and Artoo and the Starkiller kid. Though i'm tempted to get Ben kenobi and McLuke just so I have the magnificent seven. (I'm assuming that the Starkiller kid is Leia. even if it isn't.

Yoda looks too much like Mel Brooks as Yoghurt in Spaceballs, I've always hated the vader sdesign and don't think the stormtrooper was sculpted too well and it looks ugly. so no buying those three for me.

but what sayest thou?

I'm pretty happy with all of them. Not the exclusivity of course, but the characters chosen.

oh and I like the Fett but have no real need or place for it and the concept snowtrooper with the head like Twiki from Buck Rogers in the 25th century, could they not have found a nicer design? another concept drawing perhaps? dear god what IS that thing! it's almost as stupid and butt ugleeeeee as the darktrooper pice of carp.

Same here.

Some of the figures have disappointing articulation, but it's a great subline. I'm definitely in it for the long haul, and I seem to have incredible luck finding these figures...so I'm not worried about not finding them.

I want 'em all, or mostly all, though I buy only one of each and keep 'em carded. So far I've gotten the Stormtrooper and Fett. Hope to see Chewie and Vader before the end of the summer. Really wanted that iconic concept Luke, but I don't know how that'll happen. The droids set sucks, at least as far as paint apps, but I'd get them for the sake of completeness if nothing else.

The snowie is odd, but I'd get it anyway, since it's an odd line. The only one I've made it up in my mind to pass on is that Starkiller person. I've ZERO interest in that strange thing whatsoever.

i want all of them. originally i wanted a carded and loose set and there are even some that i would like extras of for custom fodder - fett, chewie, starkiller. it's going to be too tough to find that many so i'm just going for the loose set plus extras for customizing.

The "Starkiller Hero" was originally called "Princess Luke" in the early drafts. One of the early versions of the story revolved around Han Solo rescuing Princess Luke from the evil Wookies.

They picked a strange Snowtrooper design for the concept figure. I was hoping we would see the original "samurai" concept for the snowtroopers in action figure form.

According to the Making of SW that just came out, Lady Luke (not the name they used) was only in the 1 drawing and 1 version of the script for just a single month.


Anyway, I love this line, McQ's artwork has always resonated deeply with me and these are a magnificent incarnation of that. The Boba Fett is among the best Star Wars figures I own, he's just so much fun! Concept R2 is amazing as well, easily one of the best astromechs ever with lots of moving parts. And Chewie, I love that design so I cannot wait to find it.

I have a couple of the Stormtroopers (as well as one from 2003 which I had to get online). I ordered two of the droid sets from Toy Rocket. Just got the message today that they are shipping. Missed out on ordering the Luke from Hasbro. Haven't seen any of the others yet. I intend to get them all, and probably a set to keep carded.

Luuuuuuke
06-05-2007, 01:27 AM
I'll get them all. Two of each, because this is the rare item I want a carded version of. So far I have McFett, Stormtrooper, Luke and R2/3PO.

I think McFett looks the best. I love the articulation on it too, except it falls apart way too easily.

I've heard so many alternate version of events and retelling of the making of Star Wars, that I'm not sure what to believe anymore. I remember a story from the filming of American Graffiti where Lucas supposedly promised all of the cast of Graffiti parts in Star Wars. Richard Dreyfuss wanted to be the "King of the Wookies" since Lucas described Wookies as very furry and very short (kind of like Ewoks, before there were Ewoks).

I tend to believe that the stuff written back in the 70s and 80s would be more accurate compared to some of the revisionist history we are getting now.

Anyways, I just ordered a McFett on Ebay ($15 - I'm so tired of looking for him that I don't care about the price anymore), and I just got in one of the C4 Concept Lukes. I think I'm most excited about Chewbacca though, he looks really cool (in a butt-ugly sort of way). Even outside of the concept collection, he would work well as a background alien in a Cantina diorama or just walking along the streets of Mos Eisley.

I agree that this little sub-set is fantastic. Got 2 troopers and 2 Fetts. Ordered the Luke for HTS and 3P0 and R2 from Toyrocket. I will in all likelihood keep these carded and not give to my son, with the exception of duplicates I get.

I wonder if Hasbro had any idea how popular these would be. There is such a demand for them and they can't keep them on the shelves. Those of you that have not been able to get them on HTS, don't give up as the 501st Stormtrooper was a quick sellout and I don't think they will ever sell out of him at 14.95 unless they offer a steep discount.

I think they would have to know. Look at the ridiculous UGH figures. Those sold out too and there was nothing all that special about them.

I don't think anything catches Hasbro by total surprise. The way I see it, they like to keep the sense of urgency and demand up, so they don't make these things too easy to get. That keeps the mystique. Let's face it, if these were easy to find, we wouldn't be as excited about them.

Having said that, with a little dogged determination, I think you have a good chance of finding these at retail. I don't hit store openings as much as some people--like the folks from the L.A. Just Found thread in the San Fernando Valley:D but if I did, I have no doubt I already would have found McChewie.

It's a question if you really want to keep going to stores at 8 a.m. or earlier if it's Wal-mart or after work. That gets to be a drag. I've hit the same friggin' Target at opening for 3 days in a row and nothing. But I know sooner or later they're going to have to stock TAC 3. But it's a pain in the butt. Especially when I go to another Target later and see that they had that wave in.

But I figure if you stick with one store for a week, you're bound to strike gold with the McFigure you want(Besides, I'm afraid if I hit a different Target for just one day, that'll be the day the Target I was staking out gets what I want).

Part of the reason they cant stay on shelves is because of the 1 per case ratio. Granted if there were 2-3 per case, they would still be gone, but you would have a better chance at getting them.

1 per case is messed up. They should all be 2 per case at least.

figrin bran
06-06-2007, 01:15 AM
Wave 4 is not going to be much better with the McVaders one per case. However, wave 5 will have Vader and Starkiller, albeit both at one per case.

i wish i could hit stores at opening more than twice a week but unfortunately work doesn't permit that, nor does it permit me to make it to HTS' 11:30 Pacific restocking times.

TheRealDubya
06-06-2007, 01:11 PM
I am buying 2 of each, one for opening and one to save carded -- along with a set of the vintage, these are the only figs I am keeping carded this year. I have all 6 so far released (Stormtrooper, Boba, Chewie, Luke and the 2 droids) and Luke is my favorite. I look forward to putting together a display with all of them.

I still have not seen a single one in the wild though; I got my exclusives at CIV and have purchased the rest online. Finding them in the stores would be so much more fun. I have to reason that they will start showing up more regularly, unless these are like Scorch from last year -- I saw every single Saga Collection figure more than once in the wild, except for Scorch, who I only saw one time. That's with maybe two hunting trips per week, hitting 4-5 stores per trip.

Luuuuuuke
06-06-2007, 01:58 PM
This is the hope with McVader: that some near-sighted collectors and scalpers will pass a few of them over because they mistake them for one of the 1 million Vaders released so far. That's what it's come to.

Having said that, this morning was good to me. I found the two McChewie's I wanted at the second Target I went to--around 8:25 a.m. And the weird thing was they were both hanging in the front with almost no other figures from wave 3. Only a Biggs and a couple of reject Vaders.

I think a mischevious Target employee must have held them back so the collectors and scalpers there at opening would not get them. Bad for them, good for me.

I tend to believe that the stuff written back in the 70s and 80s would be more accurate compared to some of the revisionist history we are getting now.Right after SW came out, there was a lot bunk about SW, a lot of actors making wild claims that weren't true, etc.. I've always heard that Lucas didn't want to work with any actors he had worked with before, which is why Harrison Ford originally was only Han for the screen tests. Also, look at the earlier screenplays released back then, none of them have the Luke-type character as a girl, and there's only a very small number of concept art showing LadyLuke, just 1 or 2 that are significant. Plus, the interviews cited in the book about that are from just before and just after the movie's release.

I love this line....it feels as vintage as anything the modern Star Wars has done, including the Vintage line (though its my favorite sub line, bar none)

I have bought two of each, through McChewie - I love them all.

I am annoyed with the 1 per case ratio, but the only one that way truly a 'Motherfrogger' to find was McFett.

McVader is the next one that I cannot wait to get - I may buy three of him, since I dig both helmet designs.

I did not know there were many concepts for the McSnowtrooper - I loved the fig of this one at CIV - anyone have a pic of the Samauri design Barada meantioned? (thanks)

That wasn't the "Motherfrogger" to find for me, I can tell you that. I found 4 McFetts.

If I hadn't used the DPCI trick I would be the owner of a grand total of zero McTroopers right now. I have not seen a single one of those in their natural environemment, aka The Peg.

I don't like the one per case ratio at all. I think it's Hasbro's way of keeping the addiction going.

I bought a droids set off the Toyrocket site today. Roughly $27, shipped. I am bummed at the cost... now I don't know how I'll get McLuke, save off Ebay.

This is a great subline, but tracking 'em down is a real pain in the tail. Not real fun, either.

you could also ask employees at the guest services desk or the electronics section. if you opt for the latter, it would help to have a basket or cart with merchandise other than toys just so they don't think you're a "collector".

regarding the McLukes, at the moment i'm trying to trade some for the Disney Weekend Cantina Band figures but i should have some to trade or sell to you guys at cost soon.

You see those red scanners with numbers at Target? (1 to 9 plus a 0?) Not every Target has those. But if a store does, you just plug in the number for the item you're looking for. (Just look at the number on the peg where the item should be). It will tell you if it's on an aisle, and if so, where. The second line tells you if it's in the stockroom.

Thing is, Target has been stricter about not pulling stuff from the back. More and more Targets, at least in my area, have put out little signs saying they won't pull out collectibles.

But the DPCI will at least tell you if they have something in stock. And if the pegs are really empty, you can maybe convince them to put some out to at least replenish them. Or you can keep an eye out on that store.

But here's the thing. Using the DPCI pretty much marks you as a collector or scalper.

This isn't a great drawing of them, but you can see a few carrying their "duffel bags" out of the AT-AT (this is when the AT-ATs were much lower to the ground). The "samurai" design elements are pretty obvious.

I could use some extra ammo.Use the phones, Luke! ;) Here's how I roll with the DCPI #, I try 2 different scanners (provided the scanners are the new kind with the numbers on the side) because sometimes 1 will lie; if not, I try the courtesy phones; if I'm feeling bold I find an employee.

The second line tells you if it's in the stockroom.Yeah, but those things have been lying a lot lately, I'll go to 1 and it'll say "in stock: no" and then I'll go to another in a different section and it'll say "yes". I think they're messing with them.


Thing is, Target has been stricter about not pulling stuff from the back. More and more Targets, at least in my area, have put out little signs saying they won't pull out collectibles. Yeah, they've come down hard in my area, got to work your tail off finding an employee who isn't going to lie to your face or just say no.


But here's the thing. Using the DPCI pretty much marks you as a collector or scalper.I love when they get all antsy and protective of their mighty secrets: "how do you know about that number?!?" - hi, stupid jerk employee, it's right there on the shelf tag under the UPC number, and now I'm off to report you to the company for being rude to a customer.

Luuuuuuke
06-07-2007, 07:42 PM
I've never had an employee get rude with me because I had the DPCI, and I only remember being lied to once, and that was over the Wii. But more and more they'll just politely tell me about their policy. It's hard to argue once they do that, especially if they're courteous.

Also, I think employees have gotten more knowledgeable about hard to find items like McFigures than before. I really think the only reason I found McChewie 30 mins after Target opened is that an employee put those out AFTER the rush of early collectors/scalpers left.

And one employee at Commerce Target told me they don't always put in stock items out in the morning, even if they get it the night before. He said it was to give everyone a fair shot.

Every once in a while someone tries to buy a figure and their credit card is denied at the register. So the cashier will just toss the figures into a basket and they are put back on the shelf whenever someone has the time. So that could also be why those figures showed up so late.

Just an alternate possibility.

I think that they will probably turn up online again next week. I think they got pulled from Hasbro's online retailer over the coupon fiasco. Once that is cleared up I'm hoping they show up again.

Speaking of that, if any of you still want Concept Lukes you ordered from Hasbro's online shop, you'd better call Hasbro and let them know.

At first, after the fiasco, they said if you still wanted this item shipped despite the discount being rescinded and the shipping costs being included, all you had to do was NOT call and cancel it. (In other words, they would assume you want the Luke and they would just ship it) Well, apparently they realized that could cause a lot of problems, legal ones. So now you have to call and tell them you still want it.

Got to thinking about all the figures that have been showing up on Hasbrotoyshop lately and was wondering if they are confined by the same type of case assortments as regular retailers.
Do they get this stuff in "bulk" and just obviously sell out quickly of the more demanded figures like the McQuarries, or are they now swimming in Lukes and Hans?
There seems to have been a lot of Troopers and Fetts recently. Will they continue to stock these, or stop at some point because they are overloaded with figures from the rest of the wave.
Got me thinking, since McChewy is only one per case, unlike Fett, and in fewer assotments that we know of right now than McStormy, will he show up online in decent, accessible numbers?

Just a thought.

It's luck of the draw, it's never 1 specific time so you just have to be there after it happens, and there are certain days where it never pays off (Monday seems to be a biggie). They don't do it on weekends either.

I think you're right because all of the HTF figures sell out quickly there. Now you'd think that Hasbro would create full cases of those figures to sell on-line. There's no finite amount of pegs to clog with such duplicates, and they would sell a ton of the figures that collectors and army builders really want. And it wouldn't hurt their retailer accounts much (WM, Target, etc.) because the more common figures would still get snatched up by kids and collectors who don't want to pay shipping charges on the 27th Vader figure released in two years. :D

Chewie's 1 per case??? Nuts. I found the 1 I need at Target this morning, the only McFig on the pegs. Probably will never see one at retail again, just like Fett.

All the McQuarrie concept figures are 1 per case in their initial respective waves.

I thought McFett was the exception. Isn't he two per case in the initial wave?

I found 4 McFetts, and a lot of people say that's the one that has given them the most problem of the three that have hit retail. I've gotten 3 McChewies, one of them to sell at cost to a friend from an LOTR site. For me the McStormtrooper has been the really hard to find one.

The only reason I have a McTrooper is I had a case pulled when TAC first came out. I ordered one from BBTS for $12.99 before TAC even came out but it's been forever and no shipping notice. I'm hoping to find one at retail so I can cancel that order.

McFett was 2 per case in the original wave 2 case. 6 new figures in that wave, all 2 per case. I ordered that online, but have not seen a fett on the pegs. I got the 2 troopers I have because when wave 1 hit Target was pretty barren of figures, so most stores had them to put out when they reset the pegs. I knew if I went out in the morning I would find one eventually back then.
Now, with a few slower moving figures on the pegs, and refresh cases with fewer new figures, and the legends, there is less of a chance new cases will be put out, let alone me being the only, or first person to them.
I am ordering new cases from Entertainment Earth, but Chewy is only in one assortment so far, so I don't want to get a whole other case just for a second of him.
I would love Hasbrotoyshop to make available a "bundle" of McQuarrie figures. That would sell well. No special packaging, just all the McQuarrie figures available at once.

Entertainment Earth wave 5 is perfect for me because you get two McQuarrie figures plus several really cool figures even a non-completist like me doesn't mind getting.

I'm actually confident for some reason that the Concept Vader and Leiah Starkiller won't be as incredibly hard to find as the pervious McQuarries. I have no real good reason beyond the fact that Vader is such a heavily produced figure and there's no reason for reasonable(non-hoarding, non-scalpery) people to buy more than 2 or 3 of these. And female characters tend to not do as well as male figures. At least that's how it seems.

I'm more worried about the McSnowtrooper and other potential army builders. I'd rather not have to order these online, but I'm not sure what I'll do.

Looking at the new waves posted on Entertainment Earth, it looks like McHan and McQuarrie Trooper will both be two per case, with only re-packs being packed one per. Perhaps we'll actually have a better chance at finding them, although I have to disagree about the McLeia fig. It's one per case, and not in any other assortment. Only McVader appears in more than one case.

Incidentally, I actually found one of these at retail, for the first (and likely only) time. I picked up the entire Wave 3 at TRU yesterday morning, taking advantage of a few days off to get there at opening for once. They only had one McChewie and Jawa, but I'm glad to say that for once I beat out that local scalper in nabbing this set. Once I go back to work next week, I won't be able to get to the stores when they open anymore, so this was a nice stroke of luck.

I remember seeing the pics on the first day of CIV and the sign read exactly as you described it. However, when i went on Friday, the "Comic Con" on the sign was blacked out. As far as i know it'll just be an online and not a convention exclusive.

I didn't order McLuke or the McDroids since I refuse to support exclusives at all. After thirty years of buying SW toys and watching my interest wane over the last few years, this particular line has refreshed my enthusiasm for collecting; now only to be quashed by Hasbro's decision to make these figures exclusives or by shortpacking the ones going to retail.

I can confirm that the TAC version absolutely does not glow in the dark, and the packaging doesn't claim it does. I took the core out - it slides out easily - and put it under blacklight next to the original's core to charge it, the original glows like a maniac while the new one not even an iota.

Darth Cruel
07-07-2007, 01:19 AM
Ralph McQuarrie is given a great deal of credit for making Star Wars happen due to his concept art. I hold the man and his work in high regard.
I will happily buy all of them twice. And a third General Pharl McQuarrie for a Hoth scene. I completely love this sub-line.

I bought extra Lukes and Droids at C4 just to trade for any of these I may miss in the future. The loose set I displey will make me do something I have yet to do in 30 years of being a fan...buy art to display them with.

Edit - And by the way - I can not understand why Hasbro is messing up the names so badly. I may be completely stoned. And I will be re-checking my sources. But my memory has the "Luke Skywalker" concept figure as Deak Starkiller (which everyone now knows), but I also seem to remember the Chewbacca concept figure was Han Solo and the Han Solo one coming out later was General Luke Skywalker. I will get back to everyone on those.

Darth Cruel
07-07-2007, 03:05 AM
This is the description of General Luke Skywalker from the first draft of the story:

At that moment, all heads turn as someone enters the room. It is General Luke Skywalker, Commander of the Aquilaean Starforce. He is a large man,
apparently in his early sixties, but actually much older. Everyone senses the
aura of power that radiates from this great warrior. Here is a leader: a
Jedi general. He looks weary, but is still a magnificent-looking warrior.
His face, cracked and weathered by exotic climates, is set off by a close
silver beard, and dark, penetrating eyes. Sandage is somewhat embarrassed and quietly sits down.

And a link to a pic of "Han Solo"

http://www.entertainmentearth.com/prodinfo.asp?number=HS87500G#LargeImage

I was wrong about Chewbacca being Han Solo, though. Here is the description of Han:

General Skywalker embraces Han Solo, the underground contact. Han is a huge, green skinned monster with no nose and large gills.

I do remember seeing the art for him.

Chewbacca is described as:

The eight foot Chewbacca, who resembles a huge, grey bushbaby
with fierce baboon-like fangs, struggles to free his companions.

I guess that works for the McQuarrie Chewbacca.

Edit - And on a final note: The wave 5 "Luke Starkiller" fits the description of another incarnation of Deak Starkiller who is killed by a Sith Knight pretty much immediately after he is introduced. He is 10 years old.

Obi-Wan has a decent sculpt and good articulation in the upper body. However, the pants are really flared out like the POTC figures and he has ankle articulation yet no knee articulation which is useless if you ask me. The skirt is white and provides too much of a contrast from the light beige with purple trim robes.

Yoda's skirt is flared out too much which makes him look really ridiculous. This is one instance in which a sculpted skirt would've worked better than soft goods.

Yoda's skirt is flared out too much which makes him look really ridiculous. This is one instance in which a sculpted skirt would've worked better than soft goods.I must concur, and add that while they're both kinda interesting, neither really sings. Obi-Wan's costume shoulders don't stand out enough and the white and blue isn't much of an impact. The head sculpt is that guy with livelier eyes, but that guy is generic now somehow. What really disappointed me is they gave him the ROTS Obi-Wan lightsaber and a modified version of the hilt (modified in that it was the lit version without the blade rather than the unlit version they already had, I believe).

Yoda isn't craggy enough and his nose is too pronounced, the art is right there showing his hair and ears are different too. And he's too tall. Honestly, this is the first set where I've thought they got too far away from the 2d art sources.


I'm collecting this line 1 & 1, which is a total first for me for an entire subline. It's McQuarrie, the guy rocks and it makes me want to treat these things as art.

Hey, KH, do you need an unopened McChewie as well still?

I have the McTrooper for you. Let me know and I can ship both out to you. IIRC, the extra McChewie was from KMart and might be a dollar more, I'll check that to be certain. I believe it's MOC, however it does have the KMart price tag on the bubble, so it's up to you to remove that. Goo-gone works fine on that and won't ruin the bubble.

This can just be added to our deal for the McTrooper/Fig to be named later.

I would not army build the troopers if I could. Yes, I do have an army of snowtroopers but those are the only troops I have built an army with. I have all of these except chewie, but I will be getting him soon enough. The next one to buy will be the vader. Good luck everyone.

Hey I saw you guys were looking for a McChewie. I have a spare MOC if anyone wants to work something out let me know. And no, I would not army build the McStormies. It's a good looking figure but lacks enough articulation to make it worth army building for me. When you're limited in the posses, it makes it noticeable how static the figure is.

I have one of each of these figures so far, all carded. I've seen loose shots from other collectors here, and while they do look great, I feel that the artwork on the cards (and the art & artist commentary on the back) compliments the figures to such a degree as to warrant keeping them carded. They're the only carded figures I collect, save for the VTAC wave and the very occasional "true" vintage carded figure.

I Was ReadING The Current Star Wars Insider At Work And In The Shop Section It Had A Page Article About The Concept Grievous, But I Did Not Get To Finish Looking At It Before I Was Interupted, And When I Left I Forgot The Mag On My Desk AT WORK. I Checked Out The Star Wars Shop But It Is Not Listed. Does Any One Know Aything About This Figure?

I hadn't read the magazine yet, but I just looked for that part in there and saw the picture of the figure. This is the first I had heard of it. It sounds like it will be a StarWarsShop exclusive. No date mentioned for it. It also says prototype pictured.

Did they ever say what was the concept of this figure? Was it meant to be in the line and just didnt make it in time,or was there something else with it, it just seems odd for the star wars website's shop to have an exclusive like this that would do well at retail.

I ordered 2 since the shipping is so high on 1 and I have sealed ones of all the figures up until Vader (which I haven't found yet). Personally, that price feels too high, like $4 or so more than what it should be, but Luke was $15 at CIV I believe so it's not a huge shock.

Well I just ordered Concept Greivous off starwarsshop.com, and am out $23.94. I could go on a rant as to why the heck Greivous costs more than the convention exclusives, or why it is over 2X the price of a regular carded figure. I know the answer already: because fools like me will pay what they ask, just so I can complete my Concept figure collection. I understand wanting to have an online exclusive to the site, but to go a step further and jack up the price to double that of regular retail is more of that shameless opportunism that is driving more and more collectors from the hobby every day.

I know when I've been had, but I don't have to like it:upset:. I'll be a little relieved when this Concept line is finished; with the scarcity of the line at retail, and the online and convention exclusives, it's been more of a hassle than an enjoyable experience to collect them.

I went in with a group and we purchased 10 of them and the freight was only $11.95. One of the few times that group purchases worked out.

I think the Grievous is better than the r2 & c3 but those are vintage McQuarrie figures thus, they are worth it to me.

I've seen quite a few McVaders and isn't the figure supposed to have a blaster? I got one and opened it and it had a holster but no blaster. Is my figure missing an accessory or did Hasbro pull the blaster at the last minute?

Found me a McQ Snowtrooper today... The head looks sort of screwy. You can tell that that on the concept art that the little grey nozzles on the front should be like a gas mask type deal.

On the figure it looks like two little grey decorations.... sort of disappointing but on the whole its awesome!!!

I have to agree with this, the main art on the card is more striking than their versions (the second head in the set is intended to represent the art, but they took too many liberties with it, the "mouth/nose" and "cheeks" are trying too hard to be regular movie Vader).

And I don't like that they did the silver fabric "chain" on the cape when the art clearly shows the cape attached to the neck armor. I still dig the fig though.

I've been spying a McVader at nearly every trip I take lately, I've been avoiding the Frank&Sons scalper areas and it's been paying off. I picked up an extra Vader for trade bait, but am thinking maybe nobody wants him.

I found a McStarkiller and McFett at a WM on Monday, so shocking, I bought 'em both (Fett either as a second duplicate for the extra head or trade bait). Now I have open/moc for all up to wave 5, I have a lead on a McSnowtrooper but not in hand yet.

Concept Starkiller is an interesting figure, it's not all that accurate to the art but it's a fairly decent figure in its own rite.

Im pretty unhappy there are only 2 left to get, excluding the CE Droids & Luke and the RII Droids. I havent been this excited to find figures since the OTC line, and even still I just dumped them all on eBay. Im kind of bummed there wont be any in 2008, but then again I dont want them to make some ridiculous characters just to carry on the line.

--I got a Concept Stormie only because I used the DPCI to get them to pull open a case. I got an extra one only by ordering through BBTS, paying far too much. I have never seen one in "the wild."
--I have seen a good number of McFetts, and have personally passed on about 3 gold coin ones. Including one gold coin Fett, I have 5 of these. I've passed on about 10 of these, in total.
--I found the two McChewies I wanted almost right away, thankfully. I've probably seen about 10 since. Got one I sent to a friend on a Lord of the Rings forum.
--One late night at a 24 Wal-Mart took care of my two McVaders. Since then, I've seen about 15. It seems to have some hanging power in my neck of L.A. But they eventually get bought.
--Starkiller has been a bear to find. In fact, I NEVER saw it at retail. I got one from an EE case; got the second in a trade with a fellow collector. In my area of L.A., wave 5 seems to be the wave that is the hardest to find, by far. Even when I've seen Darth Revan or Darth Malak, I have not seen Starkiller. Thankfully I only ever wanted 2.
--I was very lucky with the Concept Snowtrooper. I found it almost right after it came out once again by being at a 24 hour Wal-mart around 10:45 p.m. I got the two I really wanted from an opened case on a pallet. A notoriously cranky and bear-like employee gave me a tough time, but fortunately she didn't tackle me, which she could have. I got one more from a BBTS order and one more from a trade. I'd like one more, for a total of four loose.
--McHan was the other Concept figure I found very fast, at a TRU. In fact, the same morning I probably saw about 25 at two TRUs. I got the two I wanted and one more for an LOTR forum buddy. Then some a-hole scalper grabbed every single remaining one at one of the TRUs--about 12 total.

So all in all it looks like I had a relatively easy time getting these but the truth is I had to drive a lot and hit stores at stupid hours. It's do that or lose out to the scalpers.

I'm surprised you've seen only one Chewie but a lot of McSnowtroopers. Chewbeccas in any form tend to pegwarm. The McSnowtroopers are at least 2 per case though, so that helps. Or should.

BigBarada, thanks for the heads up. I drove 33 miles up to Litchfield. It was an amazing sight...no Starkillers left, but got a McFett, McSnowie, and a McVader and a few others I needed as well. Considering I had only seen a grand total of ONE concept figure on the pegs ever (McChewy), it was quite a nice sight.

Glad I could help out.:thumbsup: That Wal-Mart has been in a drought for so long, I was surprised to see so much stuff show up all at once. Six pegs in the Star Wars section and an entire endcap just overflowing with waves 4-6, UGH, Saga Legends and the McQuarrie figures. Pretty amazing and I'm tempted to make another run out there tonight.

So where are you from in Southern Illinios?

A friend in NJ hooked me up with a McHan and McRebel Trooper. The one that continues to evade me is Starkiller.

picked up 2 of the McSolo's today along with an UGH McStormie, thus completing my UGH set. My wife works at Kohls so I stopped by to see her tonight and while walking around the store, I spotted the UGH Stormie. she said that she woould put it in my stocking for Christmas.

Found the Rebel Trooper at TRU during lunch so that completes my [non-exclusive] McQuarrie collection.

After much waffling over whether to get a set to keep carded, I finally decided to do so last month, but still needed another Chewie. But lo and behold, I find some UGH Chewies along with the Troopers today at TRU.

My McQuarrie Haul (to date):
Stormtrooper x7 (3 from 2003)
Boba Fett x3
Chewbacca x2
Darth Vader x3
Starkiller Hero x2
Snowtrooper x12
Han Solo x2
Rebel Trooper x4

Had a good night last night.

Found a Concept Solo & Concept Vader! WOOT WOOT!!

Also picked up Tycho Celchu & RA-7. Sort of regretting not picking up R2-D2 with Cargo Net & Anakin Spirit.

Oh well.... McFigures are the main thing I'm after anyway!

JediTricks
11-30-2007, 04:08 PM
R2 isn't worth crying over, it's nothing special, you basically have this figure already, and the accessories have some frustrations to them. I suspect he'll pegwarm hard and you'll have no troubles.


I got McSolo, it's good but not quite as good as I hoped. No ankle articulation, seems a little small, another FAT lightsaber hilt, gun is very plain, the head isn't quite long enough, the eyes are off, and the neckline of the outfit is totally wrongo.

The blaster fits, but is clearly too long to fit nicely - just hold it in front of the holster and you can see the prob. They've been doing that a lot lately.

Not the blaster, the light saber hilt. On the opposite side of the figure from the blaster holster is a little hook on the waist. The figures comes with two sabers - one extended, one just the hilt. The little hilt is supposed to snap into the little hook thing. Mine seems to be a little big for that.

Have you noticed anything odd with yours?

Yeah, I got the hilt to stay on the clippy thing, but it's so fat it BARELY stays on there, I don't know why they made the sabers on this line so very fat when the art has them the opposite. I bet if I left the hilt in that clip, it'd fall out in a few months.

No luck with McRebels so far, which sucks because I'd be pretty much done for the rest of the year if I found those. It seems like if you don't devote your morning from 6 a.m.(Wal-Marts) to 8 a.m.-ish every day, and maybe closing hours, you're at a real disadvantage in my area because of all the Frank and Sons scalpers.

There's one scalper who has even turned his boy into a scalper-in-training. Geesh!

I've been seeing more and more of the green AOTC clones. Saw like 3 or 4 at the Covina Wal-Mart this morning.

The only way I would have ever found these guys at retail is through my friend who manages a TRU. Also got the elusive DarkTrooper. Still looking for waves 7 and 7.5, for McHanSolo; these haven't hit TRU in Northern Virginia, but Wal Mart has already sold through them. The quest never ends . . . This TRU manager is a true friend to family collectors ever since he saw a guy buy 5 McVaders and an 8 year old kid came looking for one 5 minutes later.

One way to deal with scalpers is to start a network of trading among forum members - which figures do you need?

I have the Rebels preordered, so I'm not too concerned about them. I'm still missing Starkiller hero (also on preorder, but I got my waves 6&7 before 5 as the company had to reorder).

I've really enjoyed this subline - the McQuarrie paintings are one of my favorite things about Star Wars, particularly the ESB stuff.

I don't think I've found Starkiller either. I have one from the case I ordered, but want another one to open. I've been able to find all of the others in the store at least once, but usually not more than twice. After I found my two Stormtroopers and two Chewbaccas, I don't think I've seen them since. With Boba Fett, the first time I saw one it was in someone else's hands. I found one shortly after that, and got my second from Hasbro. I don't think I've seen one since. I've seen Vader a couple times but had already ordered one from Hasbro and had wave 4 on order from EE. Then I saw the entire wave recently at Wal-Mart, so I got them all and cancelled my EE order. I have wave 6 and 7 on order. I've found an extra Snowtrooper and also traded for one on here, but haven't seen one since then. Have yet to see Solo or the Rebel.

I've got a loose Starkiller w/coin, if you need it.
Will take in trade any of the following:
Hawkbat clone
Kashyyyk Trooper (the new one coming out soon)

Or any of the following Comic packs (I'll pay the difference between the carded figure and the comic packs):
Lt. Jundland (Luke) & Deena Shan (Empire) OR straight trade for Deena
Mouse & Basso in Disguise (Empire)
Clone Commando & Super Battle Droid (Star Wars Tales) OR straight trade for the Commando

Obviously some of these are pending, so if you want to make the deal with the promise to pick me up any of my wants for this trade, then you've got a deal. Let me know.

I didn't think about that. It was 15.99 at Celebration.
But I know that can't be right as I am sure no one is still selling him at retail anymore.
Or perhaps I missed the email regarding how the secondary prices are to work from now on. Move the decimal place over for each year the collectible has been unavailable. Jump on it now before it's 1599.00 next year!:D
