Wanted to get this thread going... Got GG on the mind today.  Anyone got any news on this years exclusives?


I'm a huge fan of GG and their exclusives are always my #1 target.  Though they aren't hard to get really.  Anyone else here a GG fan?

I love what they did last year with the Holographic Leia.

And I'm still punching myself for parting ways with the SDCC 2015 Jumbo Droids Boba Fett...infinite sadness.

Welp, as a GG fan I know they usually do their releases in order of expected desirability.  They always save the best stuff for last on the announcements.

holy crap i forgot about the proto fett bust.  that thing is AMAZING. 

actually, i had to pull up some of the previous ones.  they did hit on some.  the misses are just really horrible lol.  but their hits are big too. 

just my opinion
you say the porkins is weird.  how about the crazy ackbar bust in uniform.  i liked the luke stormtrooper bust.  the shocktrooper bust.  mcluke was/is legendary

misses for me
holographic leia statue
anything micro whatever figure
luke and han bust-up or holographic bust-ups. 
dianoga jumbo !
pink vader helmet !

the ackbar was awesome! 

I was really pissed about the leia one.  I knew it was coming obviously but why holographic... it just doesn't look good. Looks like cheap plastic. Ugh. they should have done a better tribute to her.  I only buy busts and statues from them though so all jumbos and anything off like.... the one and only Wondercon exclusive they made ( yoda in 3d glasses with popcorn), i just don't buy. I usually buy EVERYTHING they make McQuarrie style but i really didn't like the Chewbacca and the Han Solo.

Han Solo looked so cartoony in purple and chewbacca's facial expression irked me. 

I think it's pretty clear when they have a miss on their hands.  Here they are still trying to sell that Han Solo McQuarrie bust from last year on their website right now lol.  Their good stuff sells out before the show is over.

That being said, I hope they have the prototype for the Ahsoka Tano bust there.  Very very excited for that. Will be buying for sure.

+1.  We already got this in 2015 with the SDCC Droids Jumbo Boba Fett.  The only thing this offers is a different style of retro packaging.

PS, who has the license for 3.75" scale Star Wars figures?  Hasbro?

Yes, I believe they acquired it when they bought Kenner in 1991 and have held it since then.

i think is correct.  and this is also why i think star wars funko pops have to bobble versus being straight up figures.  pretty sure. 

even lego is affected by hasbro's rights.  that is why lego packs have 5 figures but they have to throw in some small vehicle thing with it.  or the figures on magnets that they were then forced to glue on.  a lot of people also buy the figure keychains and cut off the chain or at least that is what people have told me.

As others have said, Hasbro.  At least in the US.  In Japan, there are a lot of Star Wars figures that you never see in the US.  We get the Bandai stuff but we don't get much of the Tomy or Sega stuff.  I don't think most people outside of Japan even know that Sega makes Star Wars action figures in Japan.

They usually save the starwars stuff til last. I'm guessing a marvel jumbo or bust. Probably black panther considering the hype around the movie.

going to pass.  unfortunately.  if there is something that comes up that i want there will probably be a line for scalpers who think the jumbo fett will be popular.  which might be right.

Not really. Her name is Gwen Poole so when she was getting a costume made for herself, as one does, they thought she was connecting herself to him given the similar sounding names. She does break the fourth wall but it’s explained that she’s from our universe and fell into the Marvel universe so knows stuff.

On topic of the exclusive, it’s tempting since I do enjoy her character as well as Scotty Young art. Will have to think about it ~

Had to google it myself: Via WIKI


Gwendolyn "Gwen" Poole is a fictional character who appears in American comic books published by Marvel Comics, originating as an amalgam of Gwen Stacy and Deadpool on a variant cover of Deadpool's Secret Secret Wars #2, one of twenty variant covers published due to the popularity of Spider-Gwen from June 2015.

Marvel initially produced two stories featuring Gwenpool as a character, a backup story in the series Howard the Duck, and a one-shot Gwenpool Holiday Special. A retcon in the Howard the Duck #1 backup revealed her name to actually be "Gwen Poole." Following the publication of the one-shot, an ongoing series titled The Unbelievable Gwenpool by the same creative team was announced, which started in April 2016. The Unbelievable Gwenpool #0, collecting Poole's appearances from Howard the Duck Gwenpool Holiday Special, was later released.

also reminded me of the hobbit cartoon.  sigh.  it doesnt surprise me since they have dont mcquarries for sdcc many years.  it just seems weird.  which may not be their fault.  they might just be accurately weird to the prelim yoda pictures.  the mc-obiwan is weird too.

i think the lines in the morning might be long mainly for the jumbo fett.  anything fett is usually a line causer for gentle giant.  this one might put that to the test given the redundancy of it.  not sure how popular the star trek bust will be because there is no precedence for it with gentle giant but i assume it will be popular.

my guess would be that mcyoda and the cartoon gwen will be available later in the day.

the box says "concept based".  its not overt to be sure.  but that is assumed to the diehards i guess.  previous sdcc mcquarries have been
luke
vader
snowtrooper
stormtrooper
fett
chewbacca
han
c3po

obiwan and maybe r2d2 and leia might be all that is left of the main crew.  hasbro had a two pack of obiwan and yoda 3 and 3/4 for sdcc one year.

I have have almost all the McQuarrie pieces.  Didn't care for chewbaca and han, but now I think I'm gonna have to pick them up along with this yoda and complete the collection.

the chewbacca is one of my favorites.  the han is kind of weird but super heavy.  they actually made a pretty much identical han figure a character in rebels.

Does it sell out typically and is there a limited amount each day?

GG exclusives are some of the easier exclusives to get.  Most of the time they don't sell out of everything.  There are definitely some pieces that do.  But getting one isn't hard.  They reserve a number every day so doesn't matter which day you go.  And on Sunday they'll try to sell everything they have. 

The way it worked for the last too years, when show floor opens, stroll by there both, and get a card.  The card will have a character on it.  Then starting at 10:30 ish they'll pick a character and anyone with that character card is allowed in line.  IE. Last year i went straight there.  Got a card and it was Lobot from starwars.  Came back at 10:30.  They called lobot.  Everyone with a lobot card could get in line and start making purchases.  I've been collecting GG for 7 years.  Never once had a problem getting what I wanted from them.  No line camping or staying out all night.  Non of that.  Pretty much a walk up.  Of course that could change but I don't see any of their offerings so far for this year changing that status quo.




Edit: also worth noting.  For the cheaters among us (we would never do that).  Circle around the booth a couple times between open and 10:30.  Go to a different dude passing out cards and get different ones.  Last year I had 3.  Guaranteed me a spot in line at 10:30 no matter what char they called.

What they did last year was hand out trading cards with a character on them. Then they would announce a character at a designated time and if your card has that character, they would let you buy stuff. The only one in our party that had the correct character was my grandson who lost it before the announcement. Kids.

Hopefully they come through with some solid offerings tomorrow/next week.  I'm starting to lose faith in GG this year.

very hard to pull off human faces imo.  they succeeded with luke i think with the stormtrooper and x-wing pilot.  thay have been more successful with luke than han imo.  i gave up my pgm this year.  so i will have to see if they have any there.  could go either way. 

btw all the previous preorders are listed as sold out if you really want it.
