I still have not heard anything about SDCC preorders. Have i just missed it?

They put out a new SDCC McQ Vader press release, but still no pre-order info that I saw...

STAR WARS Darth Vader (McQuarrie Concept) Mini Bust
License: Star Wars
Height: 6”
Limited Edition of 2500
$75

Following the 2009, sold out Boba Fett concept mini-bust is the new original concept art Darth Vader, based on the drawings of Ralph McQuarrie and Joe Johnston. McQuarrie is often credited with developing the look and feel of the Star Wars trilogy. McQuarrie and Johnston worked side by side to develop this version of the evil overlord. Though it is uniquely different than the final film version; the piece still holds true to the final feel of Vader’s timeless helmet and black armor. This Darth Vader Mini-bust will be sold exclusively at the 2010 San Diego Comic Con. The piece features 3 different interchangeable heads and is a highly collectible limited edition.

Damn, I want that McQuarrie Vader bust so bad!  That other G4-exclusive bronzed version was fantastic.

So I guess people who are attending the show and aren't PGM members have to buy it there in-person, right? There didn't seem to be any info about online pre-orders for attendees.

Correct. There is no pre-order for this item to pick up at the show. It's only available to purchase online for Premier Guild Members. Even if you are attending the show, if you are a member, I would just order it and be done with it. One less thing to carry around the show with you and you don't have to wait in line and worry about it selling out.

If anyone is a member and doesn't want the bust for themselves, I'd DEFINITELY take it off your hands!

Anyone else thinking three of the McQuarrie Vader Mini-Busts may be needed? Three heads, three display options!  ;D

Not sure what the exact number is. Probably 500 or so.
