View Full Version : Celebration 2 Exclusive Figures!

04-01-2002, 03:24 AM
Well now, that certainly came out of left field now didn't it? Actually, it came completely out of the ballpark. All 12 original figures, re-released on exact duplicate cards, w/facsimile Lucas autographs on them! Hot damn, that's a nice idea. Of course, it'll be impossible for someone to get a complete set with them being limited to 1977 each. Hopefully they'll be able to actually get this right & make sure that each person only gets one, as they've said they would. Might actually keep these in the hands of the actual collectors for once.

Oh yeah, since I'm stuck at home & can't go, if anyone goes & gets one of these, but for some reason doesn't want it, e-mail me. If they have to be purchased to get one (although, I'm assuming they won't be charging since it doesn't mention that in the article on the main page), I'd be more than happy to reimburse the cost of the figure. And if you're driving back home & heading west to do so, you could just take a short detour & drop it off in person. images/icons/smile.gif

Psssst. Today is April 1st. I highly doubt that it's anything more then an elaborate April Fools joke by Rebelscum. After all, Hasbro knows how well us collector's complained after they released those 4 vintage figures in that TRU exclusive 4-pack. Of course, anything is possible with Hasbro, but I don't buy it.

Had those figures been released I would hae been real tempted to go, or at least try to get them in some form or another. What a cruel joke to be playing, especially about the repackged POTJ figs.

Its pretty hard to believe when Hasbro confirmed for us a total of 52 figures were coming out this year,There would be no way anyone could afford 230 at retail price this year anyway.
