Pulsecon last year stressed me out because I wanted so much of what they had to offer. They have a few things I'd be happy to have--I'd love Trapper Wolf, I'd very much enjoy having the cantina set. But if I miss out I'd not be upset, just bummed out. I'm okay with that.

I think part of my stress is alleviated by the fact that I got the Endor set last year -- beautiful set! But I ended up re-buying Han and Leia because I saw much better paint apps in the regular release and got them 25% off from one of the online retailers six months later. I mean Paploo was worth every penny, but Han was a wreck in the exclusive set.

I do hope I'm able to get Trapper, at least. I'm not usually big on gag figures, but Filoni's done so much for the franchise, his figure deserves to sell like hotcakes.

Re: Ahsoka, I’m going to sound like a heathen here in this thread but the only Ahsoka I need is the Galaxy of Adventures figure, as it looks closer to her appearance in CW season 7 than anything in Black Series and I much prefer that look. Too bad it’s copping frankly stupid prices on the scalper market these days.

I'm expecting absolutely nothing, but really hoping that the Star Wars panel will blow me away! Don't want to speculate too much, because I'm afraid 9f setting to high of expectations.

As for the exclusives, I really only care about Filoni, the Cantina just doesn't feel worth it. Might still grab if it stays up for sale, but I'm not to worried, I'll just get Ponda and Doc as singles, and make a full bar later.

The rancor should be really cool though! That's easily what I'm most excited for out of everything. Can't wait to see the prototype.

When it comes to the Hasbro Star Wars team, you should go in with zero expectations. They're so poor compared to the Marvel team, they look like they're a different company.

Either way, I'll wait for clearance or reissue or something.

Oh man. I must have blanked out the trauma of reading it first time because I didn't remember this: I've just shocked myself by checking the price of the cantina set=
£109.99. That's $151.72 U.S.
I don't even want the quarter piece of the bar. So that's £70 ($96.54 U.S.) for Ben.
There's higher costs, there's a desire for continually increasing profit, but then there's an absolute disdain for your customers. That's absurd.
Can't see any way I'm gonna go for the Rancor based on this.

Hasbro stuff has always ignored the exchange rate with other countries.
$105 should be £77. It’s a pisstake.

The latest one was the TLJ one which is probably the best unless Hasbro does the TFA Pilot or 2 pack one in Archive line with updated photo real printing.

Sorry if it's been stated already, but are we not able to use the app to order during PulseCon? The exclusives all say phone orders won't be accepted, which I'm guessing means on the app. I guess it's fair, but I was hoping to make things a little easier. I assume we can still use the mobile Pulse sight, though?
