Scored one of these today. Heard they might be pretty limited but something for you hardcore to hunt down. Got it at sdcc today. Will include a picture soon.

What's it made of?

Same plastic the figures are. Probably just extra blaster painted and a key chain added.

Very cool, but it would be nicer if it didn't have their URL and logo all over it. If I could get one, I'd be spraypainting it black to cover all that up. I assume it's only available to show attendees? Wonder how much they'll end up costing on Ebay :(

It's cool, but certainly something I can live without.

Probably because its exclusive to SDCC for those who attend the con. Most of us will have to get it from Ebay later on. :(

I don't know, something like this, my guess is you'll also be able to pick these up at CVI.

Yeah, that's what I really meant. It's probably a con exclusive for both SDCC and C6. But for those of us not attending either one, we're going to have to pay scalper prices on Ebay to get this. :(

Cool promo. I love when companies do extra little things like this for show attendees. Also gives those of us not at the show something to hunt down. Good job GG!

I hope I don't get one of these delivered to me in a box with a note saying: "Sorry to inform you, but we oversold the Blue Snaggletooth exclusive. But please take this free gift with our apologies". ;)

Actually they should have included it with ALL online Blue Snag orders as a nice little bonus "thank you" from the company for supporting this line.

I'm surprised these haven't made it to ebay yet.

With all the money each of us has sunk into the 12" line so far, we should all be getting atleast 2 or 3 of these for free

How much were they?

They are free but how exactly how they are being distributed or how many were made isn't clear to me.

I have a person on the floor today, that is going to try and grab me one!

I do too but he said that they were already gone... oh well.

I'd make a mold of the blaster myself if I didn't have to open mine to do it. Wouldn't mind doing the solo blaster as well. Although I do agree G.G. SHOULD be including these with EVERY order of a vintage KENNER figure from their website as a thank you for spending so much money on these things.

Yeah....however the gal I had looking asked, and GG acted like they didn't know what she was talking about. Sigh.

Still surprised this hasn't shown up in the secondary market. Maybe people haven't unpacked yet from CC.

Zuma77
07-16-2012, 11:37 PM
yeah I have been checking everywhere for this item, but no luck yet!

Sounds like there might have been some truth to the "extremely limited" talk when I got mine. Sorry it is this hard to find. I do see someone listed one on eBay so they are out there. Pretty cheap so far too.

yeah I don't understand why it is so hard to track this thing down, I mean they had to have had quite a few of them, I would think?

I have a feeling these will be all over Celebration VI. I bet they just brought a few to SDCC and then "acted like they don't know where they came from" on purpose! Cause some discussion (like we are having here) and some hype. I'm not paying ebay prices because I'm getting one free (hopefully!)

dockingbay97
07-18-2012, 11:26 AM
I wouldn't hold your breathe for C(insert number here). I bet they won't hand out many there either. The more time that goes by I think these weren't meant for the larger collector base. They must have been a party favor or something for SDCC. Or possibly for retailers or the such.

I wish someone would get me one from CVI, if they have them!

If I can I will. PM me so I know who asked me.

Not sure why people are so hyped about these , just case the vintage 12" guns in resin and sell them all day long on the 'bay..Ig88's guns would be perfect too.

This thing just went for $40 on Ebay!!!!!! I think I just might make a mold like I mentioned before.

Yeah, I was surprised it went for that much, but then it was the one and only one up for sale. I see there's now a 2nd one up for auction. Surprised more aren't popping up already.

Yeah I was watching the one that went for $40 bucks on ebay, once I saw it hit more than ten bucks, I lost interest in it. :\

Hopefully they'll give some of these at Celebration

In case anyone is wondering, Gentle Giant has these at CVI. However, they only give them out if you make a purchase. Also, you have to ask for it. They don't make it widely known.

Luckily, I still needed the McQuarrie Stormtrooper bust, so I got one.

Since I could not go to Celebration, I reluctantly paid $20 for one on Evilbay.

I don't get this concept, it's a KEY CHAIN, why be so stingy with them, isn't it supposed to be used as a marketing tool. I'd actually like one to USE as a key chain, but I'm not going to pay anything exorbitant like $20-40 for it, MAYBE $5-10 on the secondary, but that's the max!

Did anyone pick up the 12" Laser Pistol (Han Solo gun) keychain at SDCC? They seemed to be in short supply. Even more limited than last years' Laser Rifle.

Well I bit it and got one on evil bay for $16 shipped... Im ok with that price I suppose... plus it will go well with my Stormy blaster... I so want GG to make life size blasters off of the vintage guns... I would be in all the way.
