Man, after an hour of near stressing out, was finally able to get the Exclusive Anakin.   I'm so glad I was able to snag both father and son exclusives. :) Getting these "Collectibles" shouldn't be this hard or stressful. ::)

I'm going to dread when Jango/Boba/Clone Troopers go on sale. :-\

****. Forgot all about it.

Anyone know any sites that still have good deals on Luke? One place had it for $42 but it's gone....

If these items are going to sell out in less than two hours each time a new figure hits it's going to scare me away right fast.

Though I suppose a holographic mini figure isn't a big difference. Still, I think it's a reasonable expectation to be able to buy a product you want without having to make plans to be online for a two hour window in the middle of the day.

I'm right with you Ricardo on the Clones/Fetts/Stormtroopers. It will be a bloodbath if they keep to their current production numbers.

I wanted the exclusive versions of both Anakin and Luke and failed to get either one.  Not that's it's the end of the world (a blaster and holograph), but obviously it's nicer to have the extra accessories.

Sideshow needs to rethink the way they do business and focus more on letting retailers sell their product. 

It's very difficult to obtain Sideshow product via other means outside of their website...obviously there is a demand for well done 12" SW figures, why not bump up the production run a little?

Well if they keep making us order on a Friday I will never get the exclusive version since I (gasp) go to work and the company frowns upon such activities of ordering on the net.  Oh well.

Tell me about it. They should put them up on Saturdays when everyone has a shot.
I remember my dream now.

I really don't see the point of the limited exclusive version - it adds very little collectibility yet it frustrates the hell out of collectors.

The price is fine as are the accessories and sculpt, just build a ****load of the figures and be on your way.

 :P

 This one should see a remarkable following in the secondary market.

I don't get it either really.  Granted it's just one accessory but it kind of nags on you not to have it in a way.

Okay, I don't really know how SS wait list actually works.  Does any really have a chance in hell at getting this figure if you put your name on the wait list?  Or is it something like you have to hope 5000 people in front of me decide to cancel their orders?

I received my e-mail today from SS that Anakin will arrive at their warehouse in the next 15-20 days for processing. Can't wait! ;D
