    Celebration II

    32528 X-Wing Pilot with Micromachine X-Wing Fighter (No, it's not Luke...)

    Of course, this listing could drastically change given the usual circumstances surrounding advance lists and exclusives, so the usual caveat emptor applies and none of these have yet been officially confirmed. Also check out Adam May's Trade Federation for some more news regarding upcoming 2002 releases.We'll make sure to update you as we confirm and learn more!

    EXCLUSIVESSUCK.


    I never got the Skiff or the Y-Wing. If I hadn't been on-line for a six hour window, I wouldn't have gotten a TIE Interceptor or Endor Vehicle asst. I never saw either of those in the store. By the grace of god, I found two B-Wings once, but that was the only time. FAO Schwarz? yeah. Let me run down to my local Davenport, IA FAO store. ooops. It's not there.

    You guys see a list of cool new vehicles and figures? I see headaches and holes in my collection.

    Screw you and your exclusives, Hasbro.

    Exclusives don't bother me, for you see I live across the street from a mall that has FAO, KB, Target, and a Fan Club retail outlet. Whenever Hasbro releases exclusives, I just go across the street and put them all in one cart and BOOM collection complete. I'm almost bored with it really. Sometimes I have to hold off on them for a while, just to get me hyped up. What a magical place I live in.

    Gotta go with IcebergSlim here.

    Exclusives especially suck for those of us in outside the U.S.
    Our situation is worse, in the U.S. you at least have a chance of seeing this stuff.
    Our only chance is to go to the states or get gouged on e-bay.

    So I gotta go with Rollo here too...

    EXCLUSIVESSUCK!

    Exclusives aren't that bad, if they make plenty for everyone. See, there is a Target, Wal-Mart, and KB almost everywhere in the US. You might not have one in your town, but you probally know where one is and can drive there. It does such for the Canadians, and other out of Country fans, but that's the breaks. FAO is another story. I think there are only about 50 of these in the world. Plus, most of them are in the big cities. Like NY, LA, and Chi. So that cuts most of the county out. Remember the Fambaa was an FAO exclusive. Some people may still not have that, but I know that FOA.com had this on thier site for the longest time. Chances are the Shuttle will be outragously priced, so we won't have to worry about them flying off the shelves. I mean a scalper can't afford to buy 6 of these at about $100.00 each (can they?). Anyway, for us Americans exclusives shouldn't be that much of a headach. Just go shop and thou shall find.

    Happy hunting everyone. It's going to be on hell of a year, and a wild ride

    I do see your point Icatch.

    It is a fact of life and I do enjoy the hunting for stuff.

    It just frustrates me sometimes because it seems all of the stuff I really want I can't find and when I do it's too expensive.

    So for now and in the future please pardon my ranting and raving, I'll try to keep it to a minimum
