Are exclusives typically available online after the shows/conventions? X-Wing Luke is one of my favorites and one of the reasons that I started collecting this line, please don't make him hard to get :(

This is my first year with a PGM Mbshp, but I believe if you purshcased one, you can pre order prior to show

The Stormie was SDCC xclusive last year & I was able to get one after show, but they tend to pop up on the GG site & then sell out & then re appear again

Glitch
05-27-2012, 01:46 PM
actually, the Stormie was two years ago - time flies. The vinyl cape Jawa was last year.

In past years, the PGM was tough to pull the trigger on, but, now that they give us the Gamorrean, it's an EASY yes. Anyway, we generally order them before the show.

I don't see this happening either. This would really tick people off if they offered particular figures as exclusive rather than variations (or card variations) of certain figures.

That's why I said "card variation." We all know Fett is coming on a SW card...and that's the one I REALLY want.

I'm just saying I don't think they will make certain figures totally exclusive to a show. The Luke X-Wing on SW card needs to be widely released unless they really want to kill people on this line. I'd be cool if they went ESB or RotJ card for the show, but keep the preferred SW for the primary wide release.

I already ordered Luke X-Wing, so I decided to order Red Snaggs with the $30 off coupon code!

Bespin Luke

Hoth Luke

I'm betting that Bespin Luke is the next figure to be announced.

My guess is that they'll go back and forth between main characters and bounty hunters as long as they can. That would most likely keep up interest in the line rather than doing the more minor characters. It'd be cool if they could do every figure (even if I'd need to remortage my house and add an addition:) ) but I don't know if they'll ever do ones like 2-1B or Bespin Secuity Guard. I do hope that they do a Luke Jedi Knight and Princess Leia Boushh before the line wraps up.

I'd be surprised if GG honers the discount code. Things like that have happened before and they typically get cancelled. For fun I tried the code on an in-stock item earlier to see if it would work and it did. I tried it again tonight and now it says it's expired.

xphillips
01-17-2013, 07:47 AM
GG is honoring the code for customers who ACTUALLY purchased the Old Republic game/bust collector's pack (which I did!) I never looked at the coupon because I just assumed it was for 1st time customers or had restrictions for preorders. They honored it for me after chatting back and forth with someone. They were very nice about it. Thanks GG for doing the right thing. As much as we all want coupon codes, GG needed to remove the code. But be sure to call them if you actually have a coupon in hand and they might work something out.

dockingbay97
01-17-2013, 12:06 PM
I have got two emails - the initial order confirmation and then my receipt. I think they are honoring the code.

Glitch
01-17-2013, 04:53 PM
I jumped on this one because of the low price and the code. Don't disappoint me, GG.

If they would drop the price of this line to a $48 per figure price point, I would fully support it again, but not at close to double that price.

Still don't know what was going trough their heads when they decided to go with the tan helmet - IT'S SUPPOSED BE WHITE, GG!!! Not only that, but they painted the leg straps the same tan color.

You're over thinking it, GG. Only four colors of paint on this guy: black, white, flesh and red. VERY simple.....overly simple. The way Kenner planned it to be.

Also, I wish GG could find a nice gloss black paint to use on figures like this and the Death Squad Commander. Oddly enough, they did use gloss black paint once....on the Stormtrooper.

Ugh... :wtf:

It is a little weird that they used an off-white for the helmet and ejection harness, but it is only just perceptible under most lighting conditions. Given my nostalgia for this particular figure, I can forgive that design choice.

Yeah, it actually really bugs me that they did this. It's like GG goes out of the way sometimes to make things inaccurate intentionally. Did they really think Kenner used a different color of paint for the leg straps? Nope. Kenner used as few colors as possible - in this case four. Don't even get me started on the helmet. They need to dump that off white vinyl. It really killed the Leia figure.

Thanks for more great pics, JN7!
