April 11, 2017 – If you collect Hasbro’s Black Series 6-inch figures, then you will definitely want to pick up Hasbro’s Celebration Orlando exclusive: It’s Luke Skywalker (X-Wing Pilot) on a vintage-style cardback, complete with both the 40th Anniversary Star Wars logo and Kenner’s logo as well.
The price is a bit high – $27.00 – but the Hasbro exclusive will no doubt sell out at Celebration. There is a limit of two sold per person.
There are a few conditions:
1) The Hasbro exclusive is available Thursday and Friday (April 13 and 14) while supplies last;
2) You have to first obtain a Hasbro Exclusive ticket at Queue No. 10, beginning at 6:00 AM on Thursday, April 13th or Friday, April 14th. Look for a sign that says “Tickets to Purchase items from HasbroToyshop”.
3) To shop at the Hasbro booth on Thursday or Friday (regardless of whether you want to purchase the Luke exclusive or not), you must have a ticket.
4) On Saturday and Sunday, anyone can shop at the Hasbro booth. No ticket is required.
There is a possibility that, Hasbro being Hasbro, there will be an additional opportunity to purchase the “Luke exclusive” elsewhere. In the recent past, Hasbro ended up selling its so-called “Celebration Europe exclusive” Kylo Ren 6-inch figure (London 2016) and the “Celebration Anaheim exclusive” Obi-Wan Kenobi (Anaheim 2015) at its online store, months after both events.
So if you miss your chance at Celebration Orlando, keep your eyes open, for an online opportunity.
