SDCC vs Retail X-34 Landspeeder with Luke Skywalker

There still seems to be A LOT of confusion/misinformation  regarding the differences between the SDCC exclusive version of the X-34 Landspeeder with Luke Skywalker and the retail version hitting shelves in September. Steve Evans from Hasbro has posted what we hope clears things up once and for all.

Both exclusive and retail versions have the SAME ACCESSORIES* (sort of).
*Retail version has regular tunic material for Luke (SDCC has premium material)
Exclusive has premium display packaging, retail has closed box for speeder (does have window for figure)
Exclusive has more DECO on speeder
Exclusive has moving engine turbine, retail version doesn’t

Not mentioned is that Luke as a new likeness, different from the Black Series #21 and 40th Anniversary releases.

Hasbro SDCC Exclusives Delayed Until September

Hasbro* has sent an update to media outlets regarding the revised availability of their SDCC Exclusives. Originally slated for an August 14 release on HasbroToyShop.com, the indicate that they will now be offered sometime in September.

“Hi Star Wars fans,

Hope you’re having a great weekend! We wanted to reach out to clarify that the availability date for the Hasbro Star Wars SDCC exclusives on Hasbro Toy Shop has changed to September.”

Great Hasbro Booth Images

Our friends at Jediinsider.com have posted some great SDCC pics for your viewing pleasure, showing off some of Hasbro’s new offerings… check them out here!

Personal Note:  Seems like what we saw today is leaning in the right direction again for the 3.75″ brand.  Who can’t be happy with that new 3.75″ scale Wampa?  Or Probe Droid?  Many of us in our forums have been pushing for those quite a bit the past 2 years, so maybe Hasbro actually IS listening more now (like they indicated in panels and interviews today)?

It Is Just a Flesh Wound (or is it?)

While reviewing some of the new images in Rebelscum’s SDCC coverage, I noticed what looks like a possible painted “flesh wound” on one of the SDCC samples for Rey. As you can see above, the one on the left (shown today at the Hasbro Breakfast) has a bloody slice/scratch on the right arm, but the figure on the right from the show floor doesn’t – yet there looks to be a sculpted “deformity” sans blood. What do you think – battle-damage or a simple errant paint job? A variant between the SDCC release and the retail version?
