Got a collection 1 & collection 2 crate on line. Won both of them, and for $60 each (delivered) that isn't too bad. Working on getting #3 and then other than a few figures I am done with the Indy stuff.

Another e-mail arrived from GG on the exclusives.

Yeah, I assume that's today since this email didn't clearly state as much.  I'll be lurking to order at that time.

I'm hoping the prices drop a little after today's sale.  I want to pick one up but I'm not joining the PGM just for this.

I really want the crate with the Idol and tablet.

I got one.  I assume I can only order one.

No indication of where to order them, so in digging around if you're in the store, click on accessories on the menu on the left and it will appear.  I'm waiting on the confirmation email though.

I  haven't seen them on the web site either. i have been looking for the Desk Accessories (Ark Business Card Holder, Grail paperclip cup, and Idol Pen holder). Depending on cost I might get those to go with my Red Swingline Stapler.

I got to a PC at work 1hr & 15mins after it went up & it showed as "Currently Not Available". Still does, that's that I guess. I expected an e-mail to a link to the crate, not searching for it like Brent mentioned.

That wasn't the best executed sale I've ever seen, but I guess the plus is they were up on time.  Still, between refreshing my email and checking various boards to see if anyone else knew anything, I had a third window open where I was just poking around the GG website.  Searches didn't turn up anything, so I just started poking into the various categories and they appeared.

Some suggestion at the other site that these may be sold at SDCC as well and maybe have an after sale online as well?  Pure speculation at this point, but I'll watch and see.

It's not all speculation, it was on the GG blog during Toy Fair, shortly after these Indy Desk Pieces were announced.

From what I understand, the on-line sale today was just the NYCC left-overs.  There is definitely still an allotment for SDCC'08 that has yet to be sold...

Groovy, as always the man with the inside track. 

This means then maybe another online sale and something to ask for from my SDCC helper 8)

I went looking and didn't see them either.  They weren't where they were yesterday.
