Morly on RS mentioned that the ACME C4 exclusive character key will be Grand Moff Tarkin. Edition size of 1250 pieces & a pre-sell system for people to pick up their key at the show & a number of them on the ACME site for non-attendees.

No pics thus far but should be soon.

Nice.  I love the dark colors.  I see the edition size is 1250, should be pretty easy to get.

Still haven't received my shipping notice for the droids yet.  Waiting patiently.

I just purchased a Padme key, but this one is marked 'Special Edition 10AP/25.'  Up until this point, I wasn't aware that ACME produced AP versions of these.  Does anyone else have any info?

It was an auction win on eBay.  It came along with a promo Padme maquette as a 'toss-in' bonus.  The ad mentioned that the key was an artist proof, but I presumed that information was referring to the maquette itself.  To my surprise and delight, both items were AP versions, not just the maquette.  Although I paid a small fortune, I feel I lucked out on this find.

I just checked the auction, looks good to me. I never heard of the AP key before but I have seen a character key cromalin proof sheet. The only info I can think of would come from GG themselves.   

Maybe someone else has info on this. Pretty darn cool tho.  8)

I've never seen one personally, but I have watched several auctions for APs come and go, so I'd have no problem accepting it as legit.
