I ordered this particular one through BigBadToyStore so I am just getting the regular version.  I got an email this morning stating that it will be shipping soon.  I figure I should have it before I leave on a month's vacation next Friday (insert dancing banana's here).

Received mine yesterday via Fedex. As I mentioned before, I do NOT regret getting into this line!

Received my Anakin a few days ago.  Outstanding figure, with a couple of small flaws, but incredible nontheless.  Here are some crappy pics of my favorite pose from Star Wars insider Magazine #82:







Btw, SSC really has to reconsider double boxing when they ship these beauties out.  My presentation box had plenty of creases, dings, and a couple of 1" tears on the flaps.  :-\

Ooohh...love those photos!!!  Thanks for sharing.

Was your Luke box damaged too?  That really blows for collectors who keep this stuff boxed.

It had some very minor creasing on the inside flap, nothing I couldn't live with.  That's what happens when you ship them in thin mailer boxes.  The one thing I really sweat is the dreaded "nose rub".

Pics look great, Ricardo. I haven't opened mine but am looking forward to it. Looks like I've lucked out. Both of my SS figs that have showed up so far have come pretty close to mint. With those boxes they ship them in though, it's only a matter of time :-\.

Mine should be showing up today.  The mailer box for my Luke had a pretty nice ding in it, but fortunately it didn't transfer through the bubble wrap to the figure box.

Well, I didn't get as lucky this time.  The bottom of my box was dented pretty badly.  :'(

Sucks.  If your in the U.S. contact aimee.venable@Sideshowcollectibles.com or through her direct phone line at 805-214-2158.  She is hooking me up with a new box free of charge.  I also requested that all my future SW 12" orders to be double boxed, and she said my account would be flagged as "MIB" collector.

So you can do that to, and avoid any future package damage.  Oh yeah, and make sure to mention whether you have a regular or exclusive box.

That's really cool that they do that.
