    The only way to get ahsoka is by making a £100 purchase

    There is a couple you can buy, jabba, rex and another one cant member which, but all the other eg palpatine, general ackbar, leia, luke, anakin etc etc you can pick up off members of staff trading ones you have with them, best to find them at the info desk, and in the morning when queueing to get in after the bag check, or i did hear you can go to show store and buy "blind sets" which have different emoji pins in but as it says its a blind set so you dont know who you get

    I got a Kanan and Ben Kenobi in my blind box, which I promptly traded for Admiral Ackbar and Darth Maul.
    Also managed to get a Boba Fett and Darth Vader quite easily so i'm happy- the trading with staff system was great!

    Looked on eBay to see they're selling for mad prices. Should have bought more at the even, got no chance of getting the ones I want.

    I cant believe half the stuff for sale on ebay!! Why people think they can sell it for such high prices is beyond me, the luke skywalker lanyard for instance, i brought for £7 at show store on ebay its like £30, the pre order badge sets could buy for around £35 now on ebay at like £70 absolutely madness!!!!!

    And me. Some people just buy them to flip them, when someone who actually wants them misses out.

    Yh its absolutely disgusting, i just cant see how they can expect people to buy this stuff at such a high ridiculous price?!?! As i said the luke lanyard, £7 in show store £30 on ebay how can these people think thats what they can sell it for? I just dont understand it

    Not saying i'm defending people overselling on eBay, but you've got to understand supply and demand. The Luke lanyard for example is an exclusive you could only get at the celebration store just like many other items, which first required:

    1- Buying a Star Wars Celebration ticket
    2- Travelling to the event (travel + accommodation expenses)
    3- Queuing for hours early in the morning to be one of the lucky ones to actually get into the store first within a reasonable time to actually buy the exclusive items

    Now, i've bought things on eBay last year for example because the cost of me actually travelling to Anaheim from the UK to get them would be ridiculous, and I understand that there's no other way i'd be able to buy these exclusives otherwise. If I could just buy these 'exclusives' for the same price online a few days later then they'd hardly be exclusives to the event would they. And again, if people are bidding up to high amounts on eBay then there's clearly a demand. You should feel lucky you were able to, or at least had the option to buy them for a more reasonable price at the event yourself.

    (Good/Urgent)
    I heard from a member of staff while I was lining up for the checkout that the set of 15 pins available in the store was to be released online for £50. These pins would be the blind set and the trade able ones.
    Has this already happened and if not can you guys help me find the website?

    So annoyed, While I was getting my pins the OT love heart pack was hanging up but i decided for the normal ones cos they were classic

    Some of the listings are indeed pretty ridiculous, like the stupidity of this just blows my mind.
