Okay, it was my turn to have a hard time. I tried for 40 min. to get connected, but to no avail. each time I tried ended up in a failure to connect message. I tried on the phone too but I kept on getting disconnect. All the while my buddy was E-mailing me "Did you get it? Did you get it?". Finally I said "You try." He responded in like 50 seconds that he got it! I sent him my account info, and he got in again and was able to use my rewards as well. I'm trying for 40 and don't even connect and he orders 2 in 3 minutes!

I got my order confirmation e-mail soon after.

Incredible as it sounds-I just got to work, tried the number and GOT THROUGH!!  Crap, it took the girl less than 15 seconds to place my order.  I just gave her my name, verified my address and my order number starts with a P.

Keep trying!! (and good luck!!)

Sweet!  I emailed customer service and they suggested calling the store.  I emailed back that all I'd been doing for the past 30 minutes WAS calling the store line and getting busy signals.   I has JUST gotten a response from them to call another number when I got through on the phone.   I gave them my email address, name and phone number and they told me I'd get an email by the end of the day with my order number.

Yay!

I'm tempted to pick up this Obi-Wan... it's freaking beautiful. Is there any major difference between Sideshow Exclusives and the regular releases?

Generally just an accessory... not sure what it is with Ben- he's got a training remote and a holographic Leia.  I'd guess the Leia is the exclusive but...

There is no difference between the Sideshow Exclusive figures and the regular editions. The Exclusives usually come with a unique accessory, in the case of Ep IV Obi-Wan, a small holographic Leia statue. The packaging also comes with a gold sticker distinguishing it.

In my opinion, for the most part the exclusive accessories add little to the overall enjoyment of the figures (Bibs special staff? Jabbas glass? Crumbs dragonfly?). Of course there are exceptions, I like to display my Darth Maul with his broken saber halves, and the upcoming Asajj Ventress with the extra head will be like owning two unique figures.

I look forward to the little Holo-Leia, it should pair up nicely with the 1/6 R2 I have.

I had to check my account this morning because I made a phone order yesterday but will not be able to check my home e-mail until Sunday.  I have one of the exclusive versions on order and will have to display that small holo leia with one of my 1/6 scale R2's!  ;D

I was browsing around Sideshow's website, and it looks like the 12" Obi-Wan is estimated to ship in late December, as opposed to the more generic 4th Quarter 2007 that was originally posted.

Think he'll arrive before Christmas?

Yes, I got mine too. It's certainly possible that we could get these by Christmas, but I'm not going to be surprised at all if we don't. The reason I say this is because it's exactly 15 business days until Christmas. I don't know about the rest of you guys, but I have all my Sideshow stuff shipped through UPS. I think they deliver on Saturday's during the Christmas season, but it's still going to be pushing it.

If I get him, awesome present. If not, what a way to bring in the new year!  :D

Just got mine as well.  This is NOT a good month for the CC... even BEFORE holiday shopping.   3 12" figures in a month?   Not that I mind but it would have been nice to get a slight heads up for financial planning-"Oh.. by the way, late November/December we'll be charging your CC $190.. have a nice day".   It's not like the pre-orders were a few weeks apart like this.

Oh well... more to be happy about.. and more to be depressed about  >:(

Here's hoping my Channuka gelt gets here pronto!

I know what you mean, in addition to these three figures, on Monday I received cases of the Battlefront 2 figures, wave 7 and wave 7.5 from Newforce Comics.  I'm just glad my credit card closes on Thursday before Master Replicas can sneak in any of their preorders.

I'm definitely digging a hole for myself, I barely got Bespin Luke and ANH Leia on the shelf, Jango's due any day now, I gave in and ordered that RAH Stormie at SWS during black Friday and that just came in, now Ben. Thankfully I get him a little cheaper because of the rewards points I used.
