Luke actually looks pretty damn good, now... $200 was my ceiling, and it looks like I might be in town to place an order... Very tempting, indeed.

The non-attendee price is $199.   That really isn't horrible all things considered.  Last year, I had no problems getting the Aayla non-attendee exclusive.  I don't think I'm going for this but it is tempting.

That price is not bad at all.

Hmmm, 2000 seems low.  I am kind of nervous there won't be enough left on Friday?  Oh well, $200 kept if not I suppose.

Well, I think I've convinced myself that they are a good buy.  I'm going to try and get the non-attendee pre-order on Friday.  I bet its going to be rough.

The 1st to hit the bay.

SDCC 2009 Star Wars 12" Luke Han Stormtrooper

Good god! Let's bump the price up from $229.90 to $279.90.  ::)

SDCC 2009 Star Wars 12" Luke Han Stormtrooper Sideshow

Like I said earlier, I didn't see how they were going to make much money assuming the price was around $200.  $10 less at the con, but there is tax.  Having it shipped for non attendees will probably be around $10.  After ebay and paypal fees, $230 is just not much of a price to make a profit.  However, why someone would waste their time trying to win this auction and not trying to buy it direct from SS is beyond me.

I'm pretty sure I'll try to get the order in, but I'm definitely conflicted about it. Sideshow is starting to piss me off with their ever increasing prices.

I'd really like to get these - but I just don't think I can afford it.  It seems like I have to say that about a lot of Sideshow's fantastic line, but the high prices in combination with a much lower budgeted year for me personally means these will likely have to be left out.  It is tempting though.
