My account got hit last night right after I pre-orderded two of these.  Is this typical on a pre-order??  I've never even seen my account get hit that quick on in stock orders.

New pics at RebelScum

I dunno, this is looking like a pass. I think I'd be better off going back to find the POTF2 bantha--this one looks like arse, to be honest. He looks like he got a perm. And I can't get over how bad the eye "seams" look.

That "fur" does look kind of crappy.  I preordered two of these during the TRU "BOGO" sale.  I never had the POTF2 one, and always hoped to pick one up, and figured this might be an easier (cheaper) way to get one (or in this case, a couple).  Seeing the pics though, I might have to see how much a loose POTF2 one would run me.

That's what I'm saying.  It probably was once an unwashed, unbrushed poodle.
