It surprises me when people get so worked up about exclusives that they are willing to drop a whole line because of it. I think SSC is a hell of a lot fairer to their fans than Gentle Giant - at least this is merely a repaint, not a brand new item like the Mara Jade bust exclusive to Gen Con Indy from GG.
I completely agree with your sentiment. SSC has shown time and time again, they are IMO at the forefront of customer/fan relations, and they are truly looking out for whats best for their customers.
People would throw **** fits regardless, if it was a completely new figure, or as in this case a repaint of an existing figure.
6000 is a very fair edition size. With a number like that, if you really want one, your chances are very good at aquiring one.
I mean they are pretty much doing everything possible to ensure fair distribution of a Con Exclusive
-Pre-ordering day for attendees
-Pre-ordering day for NON-attendees
-Limit 1 per customer
With all that said, I hope I can score a pre-order, so I can pick up that bad boy!
