Sideshow 12" Lando Calrissian
« on: February 17, 2009, 08:47 AM »
It looks like Lando is on the way.  I haven't bought one of these in a looong time, but this one is awfully tempting.  The headsculpt looks pretty well done to me.  Looks like only 750 made, so I could see this one being tough.  I don't know if I even remember how to order these things anymore ;).

Ha, I was just looking at that. Lando does look nice & I agree that the headsculpt is amazing. Pre-orders begin February 20th at 10AM PT. $79.99 & yes with 750 being made, Lando will sell out fast. Me thinks I may get this one.

I've been holding off pre-ordering some of the latest 12" offerings - Sandtrooper, Captain Antilles, etc., hoping to get them cheaper at a later date - but with Lando only at 750 pieces, I'll be pre-ordering on Friday afternoon.

Looks great.

Wow, what a great looking figure. I really wish I could justify the $80, I'd love to pick one up.

I cannot justify the $80 price but it's just to good for me not to at least pre-order it.  Man they really nailed the likeness on him.

WOW. That's very cool. I'm actually considering making this my first Sideshow purchase.

If the exclusive was a 40 of Colt 45 I'd bite.   :D

Just got my exclusive order in and it only cost me 3.49 plus shipping. Figured it was time to use those reward points.

We lucked in Dan, reading over at RS & the Sideshow forum, the exclusive sold out very fast. Under 5 mins maybe 2 mins by the looks of it.

What time did you get on your confirmation e-mail?

Here's mine: ORDER DATE 02/20/2009 18:02
