Judging by zero replies to this news in 10 days, it seems likely that the excitement around character keys has run its' course.

Yeah, I'm still debating.  I stopped grabbing Prequel stuff from Sideshow, maquettes, etc.  Character keys shouldn't be any different.  I might grab it because it's Maul though.  The only other ones I'd be interested in are Qui Gon and Obi Wans.  No interest in Jar Jar, Panaka, Amidalas, young Anakin, etc.

I still have a few of these in the collection- they really are nice pieces. It actually shows just how good an animated OT seres could look. Here's hoping some of these artists are involved in Rebels.  ;)

I struck out.  Was on right at 9PM EST and missed both.  Guess I'll have to resort to ebay.  I don't need both, one or the other will do.  It's not like I'll have a complete set anyways - I'll eventually get the first Yoda but Grievous and the Carbonite Han rarely, if ever, show up on ebay.

I had a couple windows open, 1 for the main page secret & the other for the standard key. Once the secret pic changed I clicked & added to the cart then flipped over for the other. It was painless for paying & quick. In & out within a minute.
1 secret key did show up on eBay for $80. & was bin'd shortly after. Another has shown up tonite with a bin of $288.88.  ::)

Anybody need any of these keys.  I'll never display mine and will sell cheap.  Sorry Mikey, none of what you're looking for.

Just received both my Oola character keys from Dark Ink. Both marked variant 123/150 & LE 123/250, very happy I got them for cost. Now to wait another year for a key or two unless they have something during the year which I doubt.
