As if collectors didn't have enough on their plate with San Diego Comic Con exclusives for 2006 already, up pops this new mysterious image along with the following text...

"As per the 501st Merchandising Officer:

"Hasbro is making a 501st Legion action figure to be sold exclusively at the Hasbro booth at the San Diego Comic Con. The figure will have "501st Legion" printed on its chest and include a 501st Legion fabric banner.

What the figure doesn't show is the packaging. Assuming they haven't changed the design since we first spoke, the packaging will include a special trading card, using the 501st trading card artwork, that is removable without opening the package so you can insert your own trading card.

It will only be available at the SDCC Hasbro booth for $15."

Stay tuned to Rebelscum.com for more news as it hits!

*This item has been confirmed. We're looking to find out more as soon as the parties involved do, and can pass along that info. Things like production numbers, availability after the show and daily limits if any have yet to be determined. We're also awaiting the final packaging design as it will be unique to this figure alone from what I hear. As usual, keep it tuned in right here for more soon as it comes across our desk!

Moving into our nineteenth year of shooting Star Wars collectibles, we pause for a moment to consider legacy. Our photography is obviously recognizable because of the blue background, but looking further back, especially after we published The Man Who Shot Luke Skywalker galleries last December, we've put our minds to offering more classic Kenner backgrounds to our galleries. Follow this link to have a look and then let us know if you'd like to continue to explore this train of thought.
Focus on the Rebelscum legacy and keep it blue.
I love the nod to Kenner's history. I'd love to see Rebelscum embrace a more colourful vision.
