I received my 15-day e-mail as well.  I'm excited to get this figure!

I got the same notice.  I know they don't guarantee delivery by Christmas, but it would be awesome if I received mine before hand!   :D

Cool Beth!  Mine's still listed as processing so it looks like I'll be getting mine after Christmas.  Oh well, as long as I get to see it before I have to head back to California.  :D

I was off on my initial assessment of the processing and shipping time for Sideshow. I had originally thought it would be a few days after Christmas that we'd start seeing these, but this was a very pleasant surprise for sure.

Well, the cat let me open my present early, so here he is!!

I have pictures of Hasbro's version on the left for comparison.  This is probably as perfect a figure as you can ask for.  The extra hands, saber (and the holo Leia) just add to an incredibly detailed figure and, IMHO, the best one Sideshow has made. 

*Sorry, I guess you'll have to scroll to the bottom and move the slide bar to the right in order to fit the pictures in the screen.*

Thanks for the pictures Beth! Wow, that's a great looking figure. I'll have mine on Monday, but that just doesn't seem soon enough. :P

Sweet pictures.  I really love that figure.  However, I think I like the Hasbro outer-robe better.  The inside seams on the Sideshow one seem kind of "frizzy"

Hey, hey, hey! Old Ben has made his way to my house. I was getting a little worried since UPS normally doesn't deliver until after 5:00pm around here, but they just showed up at 2:15pm to deliver Obi-Wan to me. I'm leaving town in just a little while, so I was concerned that he might have to sit outside all night and all day tomorrow until I got home, but it's all good.

This marks the first time I've ever gotten a 12" Sideshow figure without a piece of tissue paper in between the two windows. There's no damage, but that's just strange. Great figure though and I couldn't be more pleased with the job that Sideshow did with it. The little blue Holographic Leia is simply beautiful!

Glad he arrived safe and sound.  I think I must have gotten your tissue because mine is super long and hangs way over both sides!!  :P

Have a safe trip!!  Merry Christmas!!

I got mine today as well.  I've already got him out of the box and up with my other Sideshow and RAH 12" figures.  What a great job they did on this figure!

ONe small problem though, the puch that is on his belt was coming off when I took him out of the box, but I was able to fix it easy enough.
