You forgot an option; "I want to see them in person".

I think this will be a good line, but I really want to see them live before I decide. Of course I will get them, but then, I bought the first Disney Indy, and it was crap. Hasbro doesn't have a good track record lately. But at least their designer listened to the fans at SDCC.

Is that add from a catalog or something? I'd like to pick one up.

Well, the listing underneath the photo has the first wave hitting shelves in February. Let's hope the hold to that.

Hello All!

I think Hasbro has rolled out their tried and true formula for this line and the samples I saw a SDCC last year looked pretty solid! What I don't like is the fact that Hasbro is rolling out a promo where you have to buy "X" amount of items, collect stamps or whatever the case maybe that will come inside the package to send away for exclusive items. Case in point, I plan on buying the offerings from Sideshow collectibles in the 1/6th scale category, But if I want to get the 1/6th scale Arc of the Covenant, I have to buy 3 of Hasbro's 1/6th scale figures in order to get one. Not too thrilled about that.

I'm actually excited about the mail away offers. I can understand your fears about having to buy more than you want in order to get the exclusives, though. But the Sideshow 1/6th scale will probably have their own version of the ark anyways.

The way the offer has worked for Star Wars is like this; all the figures in the particular wave associated with the offer come with a sticker inside the packaging, as well as an order form. On the order form, there is a spot to affix each figure's sticker, and all the figures' stickers are required to qualify for the mail away. Mail in the order form, along with the cash amount for the exclusive. The Vintage Original Trilogy line did this for the Lucas in Stormtrooper outfit (?!). The figure arrived in perfect condition, so that was a relief.

If you don't want to buy all the necessary figures, there's always to vastly-overpriced secondary market... wall

I think the Arc would be to be BIG for an accessory from Sideshow but if I am proven wrong than I will gladly take that spoonful of humble! lol I know all about Hasbro and their mail away offers believe me! I amcurrently buying G.I Joe comic 2 packs to get that Doc figure. whip
