For many, the joys and pains of collecting can be summed up in one word–exclusive.  A hard-to-obtain, limited piece can be the prize of a collection both as a rarity and as a memory of a trip.  But obtaining these exclusives often is difficult for many either involving expensive trips or high premiums on the secondary market.  But as the 2013 convention season commences new exclusives are being announced every week.  Last week came news of Hasbro’s San Diego Comic-Con exclusive Han in Carbonite and Boba Fett Black Series 6-inch figures.  Now on this week’s Star Wars Action News podcast Marjorie and Arnie look at exclusives announced for Star Wars Celebration Europe 2.  From T-Shirts to posters to pins, the first round of exclusive merchandise offers some collectibles with a vintage style and others with a more modern and German flare.  Join their discussion and start your shopping list now!
