Comic Con 2011 – A Review…
Here is the official TDB review of Comic Con 2011…
First, Sideshow Collectables had several new product announcements which included this:
And that concludes our review of Comic Con 2011.
Seriously, I do not care about anything else! All the stuff on my nerd blogs this weekend was just noise when I saw this. This is my holy grail, my white whale! Ask Better Half, every year for Christmas I ask for ONE thing, Han Solo in Carbonite.
A company called Illusive Concepts had a Lucasfilm license back in 1996-97 and actually made the first commercially produced replica. At the time I believe it cost close to $2,000. I was but a young lad then, living with the one who would eventually become Better Half, and in NO way could I shed that much for a prop (Never mind the fact that I probably spend more than that on all the other little things I bought for my collection that year).
Well now things have changed! You could even say the “circle is now complete.” I’m old and I get paid pretty good. There was no pricing or any other information made available on the Sideshow site but I’ve got a number in my head (so does Better Half, but I’ll bet that number is less than the one I am thinking).
