In the past we've had letter writing campaigns many of the wrongs of Star Wars collecting. I think it's about time that we start one to thank someone for one of the rights.
The Star Wars Fan Club & paizo did an excellent job handling the Convention exclusive Silver Boba Fett figures.
At first when Fett was announced for Mexico alot of us feared the worst, that it'd be difficult and expensive to collect. This figure is anything but. They offered him at conventions around the States, and after some modest waiting opened up to members of the Fan Club.
They did a decent job of administrating the 2 per person at conventions, although some scalpers still found a way to get more by bribing kids for a few $'s. They even controled the amount sold to fan club members.
Just take a look at the dropping price of this figure on ebay. Nice to see that scalping doesn't pay well.
I recieved mine today, they arrived in good shape. Paizo did everything possible to make sure they arrived in good condition, they were well wrapped. I know that a few people might not have gotten as 'mint' of a figure as they would have liked, but that's Hasbro's fault not the Fan Clubs.
Some might complain about shipping, although on a national average it comes to around $7, no reason they should lose money to ship figures out.
I'm going to take the time to say my thanks for offering this exclusive. If you have a minute do so too. Here's the contact info for

I'm hoping that they here good things from us. While we're just a few humble Star Wars fans, maybe they'll think of continuing to offer more exclusive figures to us members, sich as the upcoming Santa-yoda.
