View Full Version : LET THE BEGGING BEGIN! CIV THREEPIO / R2 THREAD

Please allow this thread to be available to one and all.

I am sure there are many of us that are NOT able to afford the time and money to go to CIV and pick up the exclusive figure. Hopefully, the good collectors that are going and know the "collect-to-collect" philosophy can help some of the rest of us out.

...that being said....


I am looking to purchase a CIV 3PO/R2 set. Anyone that can help a good guy out?





(any and all feel free to post your begging in this thread as well)

I also need a 3PO and R2. Please help.

Yes, this is a great idea. I am also looking to acquire the C4 C3P0 and R2-D2 Set. Pm me if you can help me out!

this is probably known, but maybe I'm too lazy to find it. How many can one pick up per day? I'll be going and I'll try to pick up as many as possible...

UPDATE: OK, I have 5 people in line so far, but I'm only going 3-4 days... I really don't know if I can get that many! Probabaly a good idea to ask someone else now... (persons 3,4,5 probably want to have backup plans... well, everyone should too! Who cares if you end up with more than one? It'll be a hot item for trading...)

JediJunkie247
04-03-2007, 12:03 PM
Unless I am mistaken, people are allowed to purchase as many figures as their pass is for. For example, if you have a three-day pass, that's three figures total. A one-day pass would allow one figure. Now that's how I have understood it run in the past. Not sure what will be happening with this one.

Again, if I am wrong, please, someone correct me.

Mofo_Jones
04-03-2007, 12:12 PM
Well, you're mostly correct, except for the fact that there are only four day and single day passes available. Anybody who buys a four day pass and is a fan club member gets in on the first day. The four day pass holders can buy 4 sets of the figures, while a single day pass holder can buy one. I'm just hoping that they'll still have some when I'm at CIV on Saturday!

Hello.
Well, I am going to CIV.

If I have extras, I will post.

Willing to trade one for the Celebration Europe version.

Thank you. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/cool.gif

Thank you for posting this thread hansolo_506. I was just looking for something like this and was going to create one if I couldn't find one. I too would like to ask someone for help in getting the C4 exclusive C-3PO and R2-D2. Please contact me if you can help me out. Of course I am willing to pay for the figures, shipping, and Paypal fees (if that is your prefered payment method).

Thanks in advance. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smile.gif

TrooperStitch200
04-03-2007, 08:49 PM
I will be attending and if I get extras I will pm anybody who needs one. I will be a volunteer for all 4 days so I'm not sure if the stamping for volunteer badges is different than the 4 day badges so if I can get 4 I will if not I will get what I can. I only need 2 so there will 2 up for grabs if I can get them.

obione
04-03-2007, 09:23 PM
Put me on the list! But at this point, I'm probably on the bottom of the totem poll. Can someone be responsible for putting people's names in order? Somewhat of a virtual ticket line? Or will C4 attendees just randomly offer these to whomever?

Hate to admit this, but that would blow. I agree with what someone else stated. This item should probably be kept an "exclusive." Of course, I'm sure we'll see this pair on a regular TAC card in a later wave, yeah?

DarthCitrix

The last few Hasbro collectibles, exclusive to cons have been available online. It happened with the Cele III Vader exclusive and last year's 501st stormtrooper exclusive at Comiccon.

Say, what do you think would be proper on these boards, as far as cost goes? I know the forum rules state that current items should be sold at cost, but does this apply to this exclusive? Or are we talking "fair market value?" I mean, I wouldn't mind paying a little more for this item, but I can see how some C4 attendees might get a little out of hand...

Jeditaz
04-05-2007, 03:17 AM

I am one of the many who would gladly take one from a fellow scummer who is great wnough to help out a fellolw collector. I will gladly pay ahead of time if that will help.

Randy_S
04-09-2007, 09:41 PM
this may or may not be of help to anyone, but there might be a way for someone to get a lot more figures
i do freelance work at the indiana convention center sometimes (including CII & CII) and after CIIi was taking down all the trussing and rigging in the hall beside the official shop
after a while of packing things away, the shop people came over & asked us if we'd like to purchase anything, and quite a few of us did so
there were 2 full pallets of the CIII vaders leftover so we could buy as many as we wanted, cash only of course, so if anyone works in the LA convention center or will be one of the 501st members helping out, run by the store if you can get access after the show has been closed

royalguard96
04-13-2007, 07:25 PM
Oh sure, I'll get in line.

I would be looking to purchase one of each (the Luke and R2/ C-3PO). I'll be opening both, so card condition is not an issue for me. Neither are the coins, so if the purchaser wished to keep the coins, that's fine by me.

I am also happy to pre-pay not just for the figures, but I'll throw in something extra to thank you for your time and consideration. Anyone who is going and would be willing to do this for me, PM me and we can talk about how I would compensate you. I stood in the long lines at C2 and C3, and I know what you (the purchaser) would be going through.

Thanks so much! Threads like this make me believe our collecting community still has a lot of positive aspects to it. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smile.gif

04-13-2007, 08:46 PM
My force sense tells me that this is fruitless, but I'll give it a try. The only figures I collect are the Vintage-style and now the McQuarrie, so I hope someone can take pity on me as I'm not even someone who's competing against you at Target or TRU. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smile.gif I would really like to have one each of the Luke and Droids from Celebration. Like the previous poster, I'm certainly willing to pre-pay and add a bit extra for your kindness. I'd like them carded, but the cards don't have to be absolutely mint.

If you're a kind soul, please contact me. You're my only hope... http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smile.gif
