Well it's official now. Jabba with Hooka and Salacious Crumb is the SDCC exclusive!
'Star Wars': First Look at Hasbro's new Jabba the Hutt Comic-Con toy | PopWatch | EW.com
Hasbro is just cheap and greedy anymore. I don't expect anything from them anymore. From what i've seen coming out at Disney, their in-house stuff looks much better anyways.
I would also like to point out that I am very disappointed that this boxed set is not a general release, it should have been.
I am beginning to think Hasbro dont want my money, or take great pleasure in making me jump through hoops to get the figures. I got into the Black Series late, but have caught up despite the abysmal availability in the UK of wave 3 in particular. I knew about the carbonite block and not being able to get that for under £100 was disappointing, but this is even worse. I have no issues with convention exclusives, but ideally the exclusivity should be the packaging with the figure/contents being available to other consumers. I would love to go to SDCC but I am in another country and do not have the income to allow me to do it - so I now have to settle for an incomplete Jabba? Makes me want to pack in with the 6" figures all together and put my money into something else. Come on Hasbro, as I said do you not want my money?
It's a real slap in the face those of us who enjoy collecting but can't travel around the world to pick up an exclusive piece and don't want to support scalpers.
I agree with the poster above me, the packaging should be different not the items in them. What next a Darth Vader we might be able to get? No accessories for any future releases, they'll be with the exclusive versions?
It look to me like Crumb has some articulation like ball joints? But it seems like this actually hinders him from sitting in a natural pose. Probably would have been more satisfied with a little figurine of him in a static, but realistic pose. He looks "zombified" in the press photo.
Indeed. Hasbro does a fine job reminding me that quitting their stuff was the proper choice for me. If I collected this line it would only be my faves; Han, R2, Stormy, Pilot Luke, Fett, & Carbonite Han... about half of which I'd likely never find for/at retail.It doesn't matter since most people don't have Han Solo in Carbonite as it is to put him next to Jabba
