Razors Edge has a small banner up on the site & mentions that Asajj will be up for sale 9/29.

Wow! That was shipping from SideShow, my Dooku Key arrived today plus I got a $10. gift card.  8)

On the front page of Yodasnews.com about the Asajj key:

The key's will go on sale Friday, September 29th at 1pm EST. There will be a strict limit of 3 keys per person. The price will be $30 per key, plus shipping. In order to streamline the ordering process there will be 3 distinct United States purchase options, which will each include shipping (Fully insured USPS Priority Mail with delivery confirmation / tracking).

The 3 options will be for (1) One Key, (2) Two Keys, or (3) Three Character Keys. Razor's Edge will be taking payment in full for these on Friday since they are scheduled to arrive within 2 weeks of the sale date. For those of you who ordered the ARC from Razor's Edge in the past will be glad to know, these Keys will also ship in the same Indestrocto Boxes that the ARC Keys did. There will also be a Fourth ordering option for those of you who live outside the United States.

Thanks for that big heads up.  :)

Asajj is up for order now. 

Already placed my order.

I told you ordering the Dooku key was going to lead to trouble. :P  Dooku is due to arrive today, someone at scum sold me an Anakin for cheap, I won an ARC Captain off ebay and bought Mace from northside.  I really doubt I'll have a complete set but I'll order each new one from now on.

I wasnt able to order until I got home from school, so Im guessing a pretty high number, still dont see why they picked that time.  ::) I also go my Dooku key today, its pretty sweet, I had heard some bad reviews because of the size but I thought it looked great, now just to find where to put it up.

Forgot to add I got 298/1250 under 300 at least :D

Hmm I still trying to decide if I like these. They are cool peices but they are a bit small, the other thing is that they arent in demand any more. I started collecting them so that I could have something that was "rare" in my collection since mostly i just have action figures, and now it takes them a long time to sell out.

ACME Archives character keys are the Star Wars collectible right now.  I know the earlier keys (Yoda, Grievous, Obi-Wan) command a premium price, but I can't help but think these bad boys have all the qualities that will make them continue to have high demand, and therefore, rising prices.  The newer keys are on the cheap currently and it's my educated opinion that wise collectors would buy several and hold on for a few years.  I just can't see them going anywhere but up.  And just because an item doesn't sell out in a few days/weeks doesn't mean they're no longer a hot item.  I see this as a minor blip on the screen, a position to be taken advantage of.  Don't follow the mindset of the masses.  Be smart, and buy weakness in quality items from quality companies.

Do I need to set up an account with Acme before hand (like Sideshow and others) or can I just order one on the sale date and fill out the appropriate info then?
