Got a Gammorean Guard today. He’s really spectacular. Worth every cent.

Ain't he the best? Between him and the Dewback, it's pretty sweet.

I bought one locally and had completely forgotten about pre-ordering two from Dorkside ages ago so that was a pleasant surprise  Cheesy

He’s maybe the most well done figure in the whole line. His face is so well painted and his jaw articulation integrates perfectly. Same with his loin cloth, I was worried it would be real fluffy in person, but looks great

I found the Guard over the weekend.  I haven't had the chance to open him yet, but at $30, a 50% mark up, Hasbro is clearly testing what we're willing to pay.  I get that he has better paint ops and is a unique sculpt, but a unique sculpt isn't really cause for a mark-up.

I'll still get one, if I can find it, but probably only one at a $30 price point.  I was wanting 2-3 of them.

I was somewhat taken aback when I realized the Gamorrean was priced similar to the non-convention Jabba, or the Hoth beasties. I was expecting it to cost the same as any other 6" character, but i guess this scale goes by with a completely different set of rules.

Dryden Vos revealed.  Finally a figure of Paul Bettany that we'll be able to find at retail.

I'd be walking out of that Expo pretty disappointed.

They split the reveals pretty thin this year.  Marvel Legends had more figures to reveal and even they're only showing half a wave.
