Another e-mail from Sideshow, this item is estimated to arrive into our warehouse within the next 3-5 days. Sweet, should be shipping soon.  8)

I got my shipping notice this morning (also got one for the battle damaged Predator 2 from Hot Toys). January is priving to be more expensive than i had intended.

I haven't gotten anything yet, odd...

I did get the 72 hour notice, but nothing after that. I wonder if they're doing them in waves.

Does each figure have it's own stand?

Yes, each figure comes with its own stand.  I just took them out of the box and have a few pictures below.  Sideshow did one helluva job on these two scultps.  I had to wrestle with the hand off of the emperor to place his lightsaber one on, but I got it.  I like the fact that their box was hooked together.  No complaints on this end!!

Mine was waiting for me when I got home. Nice set. Not necessarily sure that we needed two bodies in there, but oh well...

I took them out of the boxes & something was wrong, Sidious is missing his lightsaber hilt & lightsaber hilt w/ ignited blade & also missing is the Holocron device.



I have to e-mail SS customer service & let them know to send them out to me.

Ohh-that sucks Dale.  I assume they will just mail you the missing items and not make you send back the entire package....

I hope they do send the 3 accessories Beth, just a hassle sending it back. I sent SS an e-mail last night, hopefully I hear back from them earlier in the week & work this all out.

I just opened up my set and I'm missing the metal rod for the senate cam is missing. This is two orders in a row that I've gotten from Sideshow that have been screwed up. I was lucky enough to get the Stealth Iron Man Maquette, and when i opened it up to display it there were seven different very noticable scratches in the paint. They're supposed to be getting me a replacement, but it's going to take 60 days. All of the scratches could have been avoided too if they had just taken more care in placing it in the styrofoam.
