Any idea when this ships? 


They're claiming 2nd quarter 2006, we'll see if that's true.

So does that mean probably the 3rd quarter?? I am wondering if Padme will even see the light of day for 2006.

I had multiple chances to get one but I couldn't figure out why the order button wouldn't show up.

Come to find out that your email addy must match between the newsletter subscription AND your account.

Now I must wait for the regular version. 

Oh well.

I think I was on the website just right before it went on sale.  I don't know if that made a bit of difference, but I only refreshed about three times and then the order page showed up.  Like you said, once that came, everything went smoothly.

Exclusive succes!  ;D  Ordering was alot less painful this time.  Still got the error page a few times, but their streamline ordering method is a great improvement over the last time.

Kudos to SSC for listening to it's customers, and the ultra quick implementations to upgrade their servers.

Now if they could figure out that their potential customer base is about x4 what their edition sizes are. Then perhaps they'd lock in more long-term customers.

They lost me on this one. Gee, I had a meeting at work and couldn't sit around the computer waiting for the exclusive Obi-Wan.

That takes me out of the completist mode on this line, which is ok actually, like I was thinking earlier.

I cancelled my Anakin and Luke today.  I can't stand Sideshow as a company.  Hasbro may be clueless, but this company is downright foolish.  It bums me out too.  For a long time I've waited for affordable, nice looking 12" figures.  Now that they're here, they're a pain in the can to get.  Screw 'em.  I just saved tons of money over the next few years.

Forget the exclusives, I've yet to get one because they're not worth the trouble of sitting at the computer for an hour and a half!

I'm also considering canceling my Anakin and Luke orders. I honestly regret that I have to think about doing this, as I have a sincere admiration for Sideshow's goal of producing quality collector items, and I'm a big fan of their Premium Format SW statues. But since their production numbers on these are so low and the frequency that will seemingly be necessary to be chained to the 'net to lock in items tells me I won't have the patience or the luck necessary to collect them all.

I'll go out of my way for items I see as must have, but not ones I simply like or have moderate interest in. Both Luke and Anakin fall under the latter.

I wonder how many folks they alienated in a similar way right out the gate with Jedi Luke.

Well if anyone is thinking about canceling their order for an exclusive Anakin, let me know before doing so becuase i will take it off your hands becuase i missed out.  ;D

As much as the exclusives annoy me i am excited about this line. I think my hopes will be let down in soem way though. I want amazing things like a Jabba in 12 scale.

Good idea.  Obviously take care of evenflow first, but I'd be interested in Luke and Anakin also if anyone decides to cancel their order.  I don't care if they're the exclusive edition or not.

Probably should go in the Anakin thread, but my wishlist for the Anakin exclusive is now an order so i am going to get it =o)

How cool is this pose?

Obi-Wan is starting to become my favorite figure so far from SS...
