No real problems ordering. It wouldnt add to my cart initially but after a few tries I got it. I signed on around 1:30.

I got mine :)

Congrats!

I'm shocked that I've decided to break my SS collecting habits and try to go for this one.  I've got all the websites loaded up ready to go.  Hopefully I can snag one.  If not, then it must be financial gods keeping me in check.

Got one.  That was remarkable painless for me.

Damn sorry to hear that DSJ.  I was hoping everyone would have as easy a time as me.

Oh it was easy to do but just not fast enough I guess. If it was only 10% of the 2000, then only 200 were up.  :-\

Is that true that there were only 200 non-attendee versions?

Me thinks yep, from the prior e-mail:

Quote
The total edition size for Luke Skywalker and Han Solo in Stormtrooper Disguise 12-inch Figure Set will be just 2,000 pieces worldwide.

I am basing it on the post quote I made below. 

Quote
At least 10% of each edition size is set aside for Non-Attendees; however, that percentage may change at our discretion depending on the individual license involved. Our Comic-Con Exclusive edition sizes include both Attendee and Non-Attendee allotments to make up the total number available.

Quote
Once you are qualified for 'Priority Pre-Ordering,' simply go to the Sideshow Collectibles home page (www.SideshowCollectibles.com) on Thursday, May 7th at 10:00AM (PT) for ATTENDEES, or Friday, May 8th at 10AM (PT) for NON-ATTENDEES. *The website will be STREAMLINED for both of these events. We suggest refreshing your browser window approximately 10 minutes before the Priority Pre-Order begins to make sure your browser has detected our streamline system.* You will be prompted to enter your Online User Account user name and password. If you successfully login and you are verified by the system as a Newsletter Account holder, you will be directed to the "Purchase" option for the Luke Skywalker and Han Solo in Stormtrooper Disguise 12-inch Figure Set Comic-Con Exclusive! Please expect to wait briefly as the pages load and remember that refreshing will only begin the page loa ding process over again. Shoppers who do not qualify for our Priority Pre-Order at 10:00AM (PT) MAY have the opportunity to purchase this collectible after 12:00PM (PT), if supplies last.

So all in all, it went fast!

I actually managed to get my order placed on a dialup connection. Edition sold out in 2 minutes, about fifteen seconds. Waitlist people don't need to worry, though, I sincerely doubt SDCC is going to sell even half of the 1,800 they've got on hand. All of the extras will be converting. That's not even mentioning the couple hundred people who ordered online that will eventually cancel for financial reasons.

I actually got it pre-ordered.  I went with the Flex Pay option.  I assumed they would end up going pretty quickly.  So, my booty was in front of computre a few mins before 10am.

Whoot! A good news e-mail from Sideshow, my wait list reservation will be converted to an order in 2 days due to recent cancellations & credit card declines.

Now I'm a happy camper!
