the SAS hawk and blades are cool, however I can see wehre they were going with the union flag, but its so typically american to put flags on things, so you're 100% sure you know where they're from!

Baron- maybe as a "fanclub" we could also license this exclusive paintjob, may be remove the union flag so that it is not mixed up with the exclusive con version. Hasbro would appreciate the extra numbers for limited editions.

That's a good idea. We'd need a better idea of numbers first, could we shift another 500 units?

I logged in to the Club I couldn't find how much Blades will be but I only have Trooper membership so things cost more on it it's cheaper if you have Officer membership.

man 500 units is definately doable.

Imagine if we did 500 Red Shadows only, or any of the OTHER guys

do a pre-order/paid pack of

BLADES
GAUCHO
QUARREL
DOLPHIN
SPACE FORCE COMMANDER
RED LASER
Hunter

and those would sell like hot cakes the club made 650 of the figure sets, had they DOUBLED that number they would NOT have met the demand that these guys will fetch.

These are going to be tough to come by

How much would that cost each though?

I'd certainly be up for a set, dependent on cost.

I think trawling ebay for that Blades set is going to be a pain. 500 only. Sods

not for sure on cost but the JOE CON set is running about 250 dollars for the set but it comes in a nice EXPENSIVE BOX with EXPENSIVE art LOL

I personally could care less if they only came in bags LOL or maybe single cards

take a look at the con prices tomorrow and youll get an idea of what it would cost

I'm a paid up member on the JoClub (joined when I thought it was going to be a :shadow: set), so if they do appear on open sale any anyone spots it PM me straight away (I might not be able to check the Club site myself much) and I will order as many as I can with the membership discount?

But to be honest, I suspect they will all sell out this weekend, and we will be reduced to scouring ebay.
