Celebration Exclusive 6″ X-wing Luke Purchasing Procedures

The official Star Wars Celebration site has posted their procedures for purchasing the exclusive 40th Anniversary Collection 6″ Luke Skywalker (X-wing Pilot) figure for Thursday and Friday.

In short, tickets will be given out starting at 6:00am to people in special early morning queues. Only those with tickets will be able to purchase the figure on those two days. Saturday and Sunday, Hasbro’s booth is open to shopping without a ticket.

    This would be a cool collectible to have. I don’t “need” it since I have the original TBS wave 1 release, but it would make a nice addition to the 40th Ann. “original 12” set. However, I’m not sure I’m up for the headache of trying to acquire it.

    Yeah, to say I’m pissed is an understatement – line up for this, line up for that, line up for the opportunity to line up later. Thanks for making this family-friendly – nothing like camping out in a line with two younguns’ to prove your fandom. Sorry, rant over. If all this had been made public before the last minute, my decision would’ve been different…

    Is a 6am queue to earn the privilege to stand in another (shorter?) queue later in the day better than just lining up when the exhibit hall opens?

    It’s annoying, but if it means they avoid having to turn people away after they run out of the days’ allotment, maybe it’s an improvement?

    I’m still mostly excited about going to Celebration, but is there a single thing I won’t have to stand in a long line for?

      But won’t they still turn people away when they run out of tickets?

      • RumSleg

        I guess you’re right, they’ll be turning people away from the queue line. And then those people will have missed out queuing for some other panel they might have wanted to see. But at least they won’t have wasted time standing in a line while the floor is open and the panels are actually going? Minor silver lining…

    Wow. I’m glad I’m not interested in it. Good look to those that are, and post pic’s*

    *The only accepted photo proof will be you with it during the running of the Hoods.

    Yeah, bit of a bummer. I’ll be in the 40th anniversary and last jedi panel during this. Oh well

  • Crazysyd

  • Brian B.

    And I’m gonna assume it’ll be on HTS at the end of SWCO?

  • Is it just me, or is this kind of thing getting out of hand? Celebration 5, back in 2010. Walk up to Hasbro booth. Wait in short line. Buy exclusives. Leave. Now it’s just getting crazy. Look at everything being offered. you need tickets, you need to have you name pulled from a lottery…. you need to show up at special times….. I’m both sad and yet very happy to not be attending this year.

        This makes it 100 times worse actually…

    • Rivesjunctionite

      Just make enough product, right? Maybe they got burned with all those leftover MacQuarrie figures from CIV?
