Cool, I just got my order confirmation. I really like the idea of the alternate portrait.

Pre-Order placed.  I think the alternate head was a nifty idea, and looks great.  Asajj is one of those characters that could have had several choices for the Exclusive item, Dooku's lightsaber giftbox, her old Jedi Lightsabers.

I got my exclusive version, but this was a tough one to get for me. I was at work so of course was ordering my phone, it took a while to finally get through.

Ok I tried to pre-order this but it's not working? made an account, signed up for the newsletter and everyting but nothing. Did I miss a deadline or something I registered after work so not sure if that's a factor.

You need to have the account for a few days before you're allowed to order.  If you set up the account the day something went on sale, you won't be able to order via Priority Pre-order.

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.

As long as you get on the waiting list asap, I say your chances are very good for your order to convert.  I've heard of people's waitlist orders for various items converted weeks after they placed their name on the list.

Btw, Welcome.
