I got mine today, very nice. I like the new shipping material they use, i think it protects better.

Well just received my Inc. Darth Maul moments ago.  I was worried about getting one with decent paint application due to the complex face pattern, and just my luck.  I get one with the right side of his face with a finger print, and lousy cover up job. >:(

*sigh* Time to hit up SSC to see if I can get him exchanged. ::)

At least SSC is listening and improving how they ship these things.  I like the foam ends, it's a good start, but the whole box should be sealed in Styrofoam.

I received my Maul on Tuesday of this week. I haven't had a chance to crack it open yet but with this said, I'm gonna do it first thing when I get home after work. I hope mine doesn't turn up the same.

I got mine today and he looks awesome!  Of course he's standing next to ROTJ Obi-Wan and Anakin...a little out of context but who cares!   ;D

I got mine last night and the new shipping method is great.. unless they fold a corner of the box when they insert the styrofoam!  So I start with a damaged corner   >:(

Not too huge a deal since I will free Maul shortly.. but still a slap in the face.

That's what you get with this mail order stuff.  You don't get to pick out the one you want.   I just hope it arrives undamaged, regardless of what I order.

I got my Maul today and he looks fantastic.

Though it did have a rather big error. He is supposed to come with two of each hand, an open and a closed. Mine came with One open left, one open right, and two closed right. I'm going to have to contact Sideshow and see  about getting a replacement part.

I really want a Darth Maul to display battling Qui-Gon, but I'm going to wait until the new year after I've spent all my money on xmas presents.  ;)

Ryan, did you get the correct hands yet? 

This figure rocks.  The poses I can do boggle the mind.  Robe on with half saber (ignited and not ignited), robe half off with full saber (again, ignited or not) and then no robe and a million different positions and either a half saber or whole (both ignited).  The paint job is perfect as is the size of his head to his body proportion.  It's just a sweet, sweet figure to have.

I just got my SS e-mail notification for the Sith Probe Droid EXPACK. 'Says it'll arrive in the warehouse in 15 to 20 days.

SS just informed me that they're begining the "pre-auth" in the next 24 hours, for the Sith Probe Droids, I might just get them early next week.

I had to cancel my preorder for the Inclusive version, since it was going to arrive before Christmas. But I was able to score a regular edition at my LCS, and I'm glad I bought it.

And then, after I bring it home, I notice on the main pages of all the fan sites that 75 pieces of the Inclusive edition are available in a Second Chance sale for the same price I paid.  :P Win some, lose some.
