I had to get on wait list...
also could someone explain what sideshow points are for?
You build up points for every purchase. The more you spend, the more points you get. Next time you order, you can use your points to lower the cost. I think you need like 75ish points just to get a couple bucks off, but if you order 2-3 figs, you can build up enough points to make it worthwhile.
WARNING: I found this out the hard way - save your points for cheaper priced items, not expensive items! When you use points on an order, you don't collect ANY points for the remaining purchase price. I used my points on the Clone Wars Obi Wan to save a few bucks, but now I'm not getting any of the points for him and he's worth quite a few. You're way better off collecting points on the big tickets, then using them on something smaller.
