The exclusive version seems to sell out in a couple hours, but the regular version usually lasts a couple days.  So if you're content with the regular version (the only thing it won't have is the mynock), you should have more than enough time if you're back by noon Brian.  :)

To order Han, simply go to Sideshow's front page (or use the JD link to it).  While the exclusive is available, the front page will automatically direct you to their Priority Pre-order page.  Once the exclusive is sold out, the regular version goes up for sale and the front page will instead have a link to it in the news section.  If the link isn't listed, just pop in here and someone will post the link for you.

Thanks so much Jesse, I really appreciate it.  Sounds simple enough, and was probably a silly question, but I just wanted to make sure I had everything lined up so I can hopefully get one of these ordered on Friday.  I know some of you have had some headaches with the previous figures.  I hope to be able to get the "exclusive" one with the Mynock, but if not, I'll be happy just to get the figure at all.  It is supposed to be going up at noon or so, and I'm hoping to be back by then, so hopefully things will work out.  Also, I don't remember from the previous figures, but do the rest of the pics of the figure not actually go up until its up for order?  I thought that was how it was, but didn't remember for sure.  Thanks again for the info, and good luck to everyone on Friday :).

A mynock is too nice of a piece to only include with the exclusive - I'm sure we'll see it again somewhere...with someone else...

Here's the reply about ordering more than one Han Solo:

Dear Beth,

Thank you for contacting our Customer Service Department.

I am sorry; we do not yet have any information on our new 12" Han Solo
figure.  Our past figures have all had a limitation of one per person
for the Exclusive.   Chances are this one will be as well however, we
will need to wait until the item is posted before we will know for sure.

 
Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.
 
Best regards,
 
Jennifer Bigham

Ph: (805) 418-1954  Fx: (805) 418-1971


I assume one per person will be standard with this piece as well.
Beth

After the initial confusion and problems involved with ordering these, I wouldn't say it's a silly question at all.

That's right.  I guess it's all part of building the excitement (or stress?) until it's actually available for order.

Han is starting to look pretty darn good!



SideShow updated their blog with the above image and also mentioned they plan to get Han's eye colour closer to the real thing.  8)

I really think the head sculpt looks pretty amazing too.  If the paint is on par, it could be a heck of a nice figure.  It was also refreshing to see in their blog that Sideshow says "we're not above admitting we are wrong" and they are changing the eye color.  A lot of companies don't seem to admit they made a mistake, let alone fix it, nowadays.  Han seems to be coming together nicely, can't wait to see the whole figure (and hopefully order one) on Friday.

I too like the headsculpt, although that hair bang looks a bit like a surfing ocean wave!

Did you order the Mynock version?  I can't seem to get the page to load now.
