Thanks for the head's up, Jay.

"This StarWarsShop exclusive figure includes a chrome-plated figure stand and StarWarsShop.com-branded star case. Limited quantities available. Limit of 5 figures per customer"

I just put in my order for 5 of them.   :)

Yeah, thanks for the heads up on that Jay - much appreciated.  I went ahead and ordered one, and its nice to see we can preorder them online and not have to worry about it at Comic-Con or wherever.  I wouldn't have minded getting more, but for that price one will have to do.

Dude, there should be a limit of 2 on these things.  Scalpers are going to take advantage.

Thanks Jay.  The link off the front page of JD was blocked by work :o :-X but the direct link worked just fine so I was able to get my order in. 

Did y'all catch this disturbing tidbit:

First in a potential new series of Expanded Universe action figures

I think they put that in there to attract the same people who buy up the Issue #1 of a new Comic Book series - you know, the people who think the "first one" of a line will be worth more.  After all, they had this line in the SWShop "Covert Ops Clone Trooper" pre-order:

"Debuts a new line of troopers being released by Hasbro in the coming months"

And I don't think that one went anywhere since it's 8 months later and there hasn't been another word about it...  :P

Ah, I didn't recall the initial line from the previous trooper.  That helps, but the cynic in me expects they'll start ramping this up and keep it going for as long as they can.  I like the 501st trooper and love the black stormtrooper but my enthusiasm may be tempered for future releases.

Well - I placed two orders for 5 figures each. This will give me plenty to have a squad of six, two to keep MOMC and two more for trades down the line.

I'm glad they are doing it this way.

Was there a limit to the number of figs you can get at Comic Con? I was going to buy one from someone who was going, but I may just preorder my 2.

I just preordered two and if I feel the need for more (which I really doubt) I'll grab them at the show.

It should say: "First in a potential line of awful, non-canon, made-up figures and overpriced repaints."

But you still pre ordered 2 so that means you'll buy them nonetheless.  ;D

Thanks to JediMAC from bringing this to my attention. I order a few, despite the fact that I'll be at CC. In hind sight, if I pick up enough at CC, I might cancel my pre-order.
