Got my regular edition ordered.  I would normally wait to buy a character with a more complex outfit for the money, but is there any more iconic outfit other than Luke and Vader for ANH?  I think not!

I was in a meeting, so I missed out on the exclusive.  Luckily it wasn't a cool one like Han's Mynock.  I'm happy with the regular edition.

Same deal here- I was supporting a conference and didn't actually remember to order it until Saturday.  I'm not too worried about not having the binders.  As I display them all loose, most of the accessories stay in the boxes anyways.

A few days makes a big difference... I actually cancelled my order, I just don't think this is "worth" $65.  Checking on eBay, I saw several Bibs and Hans for $45-50 shipped, so I'm going to wait and see how low I can get her for.

I just seen over at sideshowcollectors.com that people have already received their Princess Leia!!??  I don't even show a pending charge on my credit card yet and others are already receiving her....has anyone from here gotten a shipping notice yet? 

EDIT:  I just noticed Chris mention in the Luke-Bespin thread he has a shipping notice and will receive her Friday.  I double checked my order and I ordered the exclusive one....man....that bites - I would have liked to get her the same time everyone else does.  *sigh - off to mope in the corner*

My girlfriend ordered this one for me becuase i was busy at work. She has not mentioned anything about getting e-mails. I am afraid to ask becuase she may be intentionally avoiding the issue and include it as part of my Xmas gift. What to do?  :-\

Oh man....that's tuff.  :-\ I guess you have to just stay silent on this one.

Sorry to hear that you haven't gotten that magic email yet Beth. Hopefully soon!

Well, I called because I couldn't stand not knowing if there was a problem or not.  Mine was just waiting to be processed so she did it right that minute and she said it would ship tomorrow  :D

Same here.  First I get the invoice email, the QuantumView sends me a shipping notice and then SS sends the shipping notice.  I'm glad I called because I have a feeling that if I didn't, it might not have been processed for quite some time!!

Cool, I'm glad you guys were able to get Sideshow to ship them out. It sucks being the last person to get something. Everyone else is enjoying their stuff and you just have to look at the pictures. :-\

Makes me wonder though, how many other people are in the same situation.
