The Gentle Giant SDCC Exclusives have been head-scratching, thus far.

I never picked these up before but can someone share their experience from last year? Do they sell out and are the line longs?

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.

It's clearly based on McQuarrie's Yoda.... I wonder why they didn't mention his name in the announcement at all....

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.
