http://www.ralphmcquarrie.com/I order these puppies last week and they arrived today. These were apparently only available [or originally available] at the Star Wars Celebration IV. If you are familiar with the concept artwork by Ralph McQuarrie for the original Star Wars [A New Hope] then these will look familiar otherwise they look very wrong.

McQuarrie Concept R2-D2 and C-3PO The figures look really good and I am glad I got them even though I don’t really collect Star Wars figures [I only pick up the ones that really scream buy me].  🙂

I really like this size figure and I am so glad Hasbro has decided to stick with it while still giving us more detail and more articulation. Yeah Hasbro.

 The packaging had the extra plastic protector over the regular packaging. The Star Wars Celebration IV sticker was on the outside protector. I am an opener but do not know if I will be opening these yet or not. I would really like to see the figures up close and personal like. Maybe I have to head back to the store and buy another one but at $20 a pop that is pushing it even for me and I am a huge sci-fi geek toy collector [to say the least].

The more I think about it the more I think I now have to try and track these all down. Try doing that without paying an arm and a leg on eBay! Figures I know of are: Darth Vadar, Luke Skywalker, Boba Fett, Chewbacca, Obi-Wan/Yoda and Stormtrooper. Not sure if there are others or if there will be but I will see who I can get. I do have the Yoda/Obi-Wan two pack on order just need to find me the rest.
