Got my order in for the exclusive yesterday. But man did those Sideshow servers get slammed! Even with streamlining their website they were running pretty slow. It took about 10 minutes from when I tried to get on the site until I was actually able to place my order. But when it got to the point where I could place my order things went through pretty well.
Now here's something that might be the cause of an *interesting* discussion. When Gentle Giant held their most recent online sales for their summer exclusives, there was a whole lot of complaining and comparing. Notably that Sideshow ran their operation much better. Well, looking at how things went yesterday for Asajj, I would definitely say they went better. But not that much better. You still had a load of people scrambling for the exclusive that was limited to 2,000 pieces. It seems like Sideshow has some better website architecture, but the volume of users still slammed them pretty well.
Now as for the exclusive, I like it. The one thing I'm wondering is whether or not Asajj falls into the Lords of the Sith line.
