Thread: SDCC Spock gift set

  1. #21
    Went to a Gamestop and gave the clerk the item number. He said its been Deleted in the system and cant be ordered. Despie showing several in the warehouse. He said those will likely ship to a discount retailer in the future. Lame!

    The GameStop / Thinkgeek merger has been nothing but a disappointment in my opinion. The Thinkgeek website was taken down but GameStop 's website carries no Mego figures or anything else I am interested in .

    It looks like this now shows up as Sold out in their warehouse. So frustrating. What exactly is exclusive to this set that I wont be able to get elsewhere? Please list specific parts, accessories, clothing and paint variations versus the standard carded and 2-pack Spocks. If its just the yellow uniform shirt that is unique, I'm fine not getting this set.

    Yeah, that 1st Episode yellow shirt is the whole reason I wanted the set and was willing to pay $40.00 JUST for the shirt, so I could make my Gary Mitchell Custom. But I guess I won't be getting one either.

    Not to be "that" guy, but... Gary Mitchell didn't wear the yellow. He wore the beige-ish color that represented operations.

    I actually made a Gary Mitchell custom out of a SWAT Robert Urich head and a tailored Playmates "Where No Man Has Gone Before" Scotty uniform... and it looks pretty good. I actually like the Playmates versions of the old uniforms way better than the "EMCE Pike" style in this set.

    If someone can help me get this set, still sealed, I will pay cost plus shipping and also send them the yellow shirt for free.

    You don't want the shirt? It's the only item in the box that you can't get anywhere else. All of the other items are obtainable on carded figures,maybe even cheaper than this set.

    So you got to look it up...and I see what you mean, it does seem to be a lighter shade. But it's close enough that it wouldn't bother me. My Kirk Custom is made from the EMCE Pike. Maybe the new Spock one is a lighter shade than that? Hey, I'd love to see your Gary Mitchell custom...could you post some pics?

    Yeah I figured that out yesterday. I forgot they had released "live long and prosper hand" dress uniform Spock in Wave 5. I guess I dont need this set after all. I'm assuming the outfits are sewn the same, and Spock's heads are painted with the same flesh tones as the other releases? Also I found dress Spock on Amazon for only $11.00 yesterday, versus the $109 they are asking for this set.

    Actually, a couple of the items are different than the first released versions that are similar. Mirror Spock's head is a different color, and the Dress Uniform shirt is a different color blue. The Spock heads are made in the flesh color, and not painted.
