Those of you on the GG CC e-mail list, check your e-mail. Post Con exclusives sale is now on. No more Lucious but Mara and Shock are still available.

They went quick. Mara and the shocktrooper were out as of 5:20 CST. I almost picked up the vader bust-up, but they wanted to charge 10.61 shipping!

Oh well. I'm no completist for this line anyhow.

Same here.  I never got the notification email, but someone at another site was very cool and provided a link.  Scored the Mara Jade.

But the whole deal points to systemic problems at Gentle Giant.  The fact that so many collector's club members didn't receive any kind of email notification is troubling.  Thankfully there's a good network of collectors who are prepared to help one another out with the link, but it really shouldn't be that way.

No e-mail for me either...

If anyone scores a Shocktrooper and doesn't want the Bust-Up, let me know!

Thanks!

Just got home from work so no Mara for me, never got an email from GG either.  I guess I will wait a little bit to buy one off ebay or trade the Malfoy bust for one.

Same boat here.  The one day I'm not online and they release this stuff without warning.  Not that it would matter, since I just checked and I still don't have the GG email to this point ::)  Disappointing, but at least thanks to Darth Slothus I'm only out the Mara Jade bust.

Wow.  How many times can this company continue to botch up orders like this?  Collectors receiving only a couple hours notice, and many didn't even get the e-mail?  That's ridiculous.  ::)

I never got the email but due to checking out another site I was able to snag a Mara.

I think its weird that no one has gotten the email from GG. I still haven't received a confirmation email but my credit card was charged.  ???

I'm on the mail list and I never got an email, not that it would have mattered though as I'm in the U.K.

I did receive the email, but the subject line was "test email 090506"
and as I posted above, the only thing left after 2 hours was the Vader bust up with superspendyshipping.   ::)
