I ordered at 1:04 and the exclusive was already sold out.

Oh well, did get in on the regular.  Unless it's a fantastic exclusive like the Mynock, I don't get upset about missing the exclusive version.

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

Damn...I didn't realize it went so fast.

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

Wow! I figured it would go fast so I am glad I was able to get in on it. Here's my order date:

* ORDER DATE 02/20/2009 18:01

I used the points I had also and that knocked off another $15.75.   ;D

I broke down and put myself on the waitlist for the regular and the exclusive versions of Lando. I somehow doubt the exclusive will go through but I figured it'd be good to get on there just in case. I'm starting up a Lando focus collection and this piece is a must have. :)

I still think his head looks too big, but it's only the prototype.

Limited edition of 750?! :o I think that's the lowest ever.

Interesting focus.  What made you want to do a Lando focus Ryan?

I'm thinking about canceling, but only because I'd rather have the (eventual) Skiff Guard version. But the ex. edition size of 750 makes me reluctant.

I've been wanting to get a focus collection going for awhile now but it has taken me awhile to decide on the right character/theme. I was heavily leaning towards a OT character to focus on, because I wanted it to include some vintage stuff. I thought about some smaller side/auxiliary characters, I almost chose Tusken Raiders, but I decided I wanted to do a main character. I thought about Obi-Wan but I knew someone with an Obi-Wan focus already... ;) Most of the main characters though have had so much product over the years, except for one. Lando seems to have gotten the shaft. For a character in 2 of the 3 OT movies he hasn't had a whole lot of product made of him. His figures don't get repacked all that often. Which makes it quite manageable to track a lot of it down. I have always really liked Lando as well so it seems like a good fit. :)
