I just recently signed on at sideshow for the newsletter and online account. It still says I'm not able to pre-order but I think that's because my "trial" period hasn't ended yet (needs to be 2 days I believe). If I'm able to pre-order this, I will. I missed the Luke and Anakin, but am on the backorder list so hopefully enough people cancel or missed a number on their credit card so I'll be able to purchase them.
I didn't collect the 12" Hasbro, only picking up the 12" Han and Taunton, but these look amazing and too good to pass up.
