I believe it was the great Montgomery Scott in Star Trek III: The Search for Spock who said: “The more complicated the plumbing, the easier it is to stop up the drain.”
Attending Joe Con and determining what package to get used to be relatively simple. You merely asked yourself a few simple questions and if you answered “yes” to any, you proceeded to the next one. These were simple statements like:
- Am I attending the con?
- Do I want any of the con exclusives?
- Am I a 1:6 collector?
- Am I a 1:18 collector?
However, with all of the various options the Collectors Club has tacked on over the past years, things are apparently more complicated– so much so that the Collector’s Club has decided that a product matrix is necessary to make sense of it all. Released yesterday was the following Excel chart that takes into account both 1:6 and 1:18 scale and all of the options available for each– including the infamous “Golden Ticket” option.
I’ve mirrored the chart below but you can see the original HERE.
