Took me 14 minutes to get in.  So much for no one going for ol' Bib. :P

I just noticed that the edition is 2500!!! :o
I never dreamed it would be that high.  I assume they are basing this off of Jabba sales.

Didn't place my order until about 1:30.  Got out of my meeting, logged in and ordered was placed in less than a minute.  ;D

3 and a half hours later he still hasn't even hit the low numbers yet. ::)

Why SS decided to make almost twice as many of him as some of the main characters is just silly IMO.

It seems to me SS isn't as much concerned about making collectibles anymore as much as they are selling as many as they think they can.

Well i placed my order over the phone at 1:00, and just got home around 6:30 and see that its still not sold out. Not sure if its just character selection, they offered too many, or becuase of all the money people spent on Jabba, but i have to admit i am surprised. I hope Leia is this easy next week.

Well their line is redhot now and they know it.  Gotta capitilize on that.

I think SS is finally realizing the demand for these High-Quality Figures and are trying to give collectors what we want.

Kind of odd since it is so out of character for companies we're used to dealing with.

I just placed an order right now for Bib. Given my internet provider has been down for the last 3 days >:( I ended up missing out on the Exclusive version. I may just have to grab that one from secondary market. I just doesn't seem right not having Bib's Staff. :-\

This Jabba and his environment thing is driving me nuts.  I did end up ordering the whole environment.  But I am seriously considering dumping the throne and creatures because of the insane $250 it those two thing it will end up costing.  I mean $120 is okay with me for Jabba.  I just wish they would have thrown in the hookah, pipe, and bowl with the Jabba figure itself.  But no they make you buy that stuff with the damn throne. 

 Normally I would bite the bullet on this but we are going to be closing on a home at about the same time this puppy hits the credit card.  Which again would be okay but we also have to buy a refrigerator, washer and dryer, and landscape the back of the house along with whatever expenses will be incurred.   I will be lucky if the wife even lets me hang onto Jabba himself.  Damnit!!! 

Why did they have to release this at the wrong time for me personally?  LOL.

I really want that base. Too bad it's $200 something bucks. Dammit SS!
I hope Jango or Boba are next for this line.

There's a Jabba video over at Sideshow - the password is JABBAVID if anyone is interested.
