The new 3-pack was announced today. It looks amazing.

Just wished it was available for online purchase as I won't be able to attend either SDCC or Canadian Fan Expo :(

Looks great. How impossible is it going to be to get a hold of this set?

I'm going to FanExpo and I'm staying overnight.  Since they only allow 1 of each item per person...i'm gonna pack 100 outfits/disguises so I can get 100 of the vintage collection exclusives.

Some sellers out of the U.S. on eBay are already pre-selling these for around $175.00cdn....and people are actually buying them in advance.

The previous 3-packs were around $19.99US at Target and around $24.99Cdn at Zellers. This new 3-pack will be $49.99U.S.....so I'm guess-timating around $69.99cdn at FanExpo.  I hope they don't just have the silver foil cardback....(I did not like the 6-inch Luke pilot version with silver foil) ...I hope they have a regular cardback as well.

Seems pricey for 3 figures, one of which will be re-released.

When you mean only 1 person Ian, is it for the whole expo or you can get back in line and buy another?

(I was considering to attend to get 1 to open + 1 to keep sealed...)

YMMV.....ive never tried to get back in line right away on the same day as my hands are usually full with purchases. You could get stopped if they recognize you from just being in the Hasbro store a few minutes ago and you try to purchase the same items at the checkout again.

They put up signs that say only 1 of this item per person.

Last year it was a 'one stop shop' for me. I hope they have other vintage collection items there.

Word of advice.....take cash with you. Sometimes their debit/credit card system crashes and you have to wait a long time otherwise checking out.

Wow, very pricey in my opinion. I'm actually very content, since it is EU characters I have no liking of. Tried getting into the comic and just lost interest. Figures are nice enough I suppose, but this is not for me. I'm happy this exclusive is nothing I'm interested in since they are once again price gouging because it is an exclusive.

Interesting about the one per person thing. Last year they apparently sold their entire remaining GI Joe exclusive stock to one buyer with 1/2 a day still left. That's what the hasbro rep told ,my friend who was trying to get me one of the Cobra Missile sets at around noon on the last day. I guess depending on the day and what the demand is you can score.

Also I seem to remember getting charged the US price but in Canadian $$ for Thrawn. Was this a last day sale price, or was that what they charged the whole time? That would be better than $50US for that set for those who want it.
