SDCC Zarana
« on: July 25, 2011, 03:45 PM »
Ok JoeDefender guys.

I have two extra Zaranas in Pink, sorry my source dropped the ball on the variant.

If you don't get one tomorrow on HTS.com, come back here I am giving them away right here.

YOU ROCK PAUL!  I'm only really interested in the pink version, but I know she's going to go quick.  I've still yet to find a good deal on the basic version of Slaughter from last year.

That's awesome, between this and the Indy set.

Zarana and Skystriker/Starscream are my two top wants for tomorrow, followed shortly by the Indy set.  It's nice to know that I might have a second chance at two of them if I miss in the morning.

It'll be interesting to see what happens tomorrow. I know I only want two pink Zaranas, so at least I don't have to chase the variant.

I looked on ebay earlier today, and there was about five pages worth of SDCC Zaranas for sale aready.  ::) I'm sure Hasbro made more Zaranas than they did Slaughters, but the speculation on this year's exclusive will make it just as hard to get as last year's.

Awesome Paul!  I'm hoping I'm able to grab Zaranna today at some point, but it's nice to potentially have a backup plan.

I'm not getting either the Indy set or the Starscream Skystriker, but if I'm able to grab them, I'll pick them up for someone here.

Waited all damn morning for these to go up. Finally got a chance to order, and it took so long that even the regular version went out of stock. Dang. eBay it is, just like with Slaughter.

Yup it's just a losing battle.  I'm just glad their site kept crashing and they weren't stealing stuff out of my cart this year.  Looks like I may need to toss the Zarana's in the parking lot and hope for a good deal someday.  I was able to secure Starscream through a local on tfw so not all was lost.

Missed on this one.  Lack of computer access and dead battery on my laptop after the store kept crashing for nearly 3 hours.

At one point, I had the DS set, Starscream / CC, Zarana and the Indy set all in my cart. By the time I finally managed to check out, I ended up with Zarana and Indy sets only.

Oh well, managed to get my number one want in Zarana, the others were just to help others out here.

Sorry Mike.  I had Zarana and an Indy set in my cart for a long time, but just couldn't get past the first check out screen.  Hopefully you can find one later on through some other means.   :P

Ok guys, I have a couple extras.

Let's be civil about this (like 90% of our guys are)... please only enter the draft if you didn't get one.

Send ME a PM and I will have one of the non participating staffers pick a number (that I will randomly assign to those of you that enter).

Don't go to EBAY YET!!!  Get a free one off of JD.com.

I will pick a name at 3pm Tomorrow, Fort Worth, Texas (Central) Time.

Ok I got the email/pm's from a few of you.

I am going to give one away today and then we are doing a Site giveaway with Indy sets, Death Star Sets and the other 2 Zaranas... So a total of 3 given away here at JD.com.... Sorry guys we are just a lowly Star Wars site, we didn't get as many to giveaway as the "Real" Joe sites.

I know I said 3pm, but I had a client call take longer than it should.

Today's winner is..................................................

P-Siddy!!!!

Congrats.

I am going to assume if you guys didn't get this one, you still want one and leave your name in the HAT for the other 2.  If you do score one, please let me know I want to make sure everybody gets a chance.  Can I police it? Nope.  But with our group here, I won't need to.

The few times I checked, it was sold out.  I just want one loose for my son.

P-Siddy (Stevey) was in line to back me up (he sold me almost his entire vintage Joe collection of which I am forever in his debt) so you can take me out of the race for Zarana.

Congratulations Steve and Mike!  I was just hoping to get one for Mike as well, so please take my name out of the hat too.  Thanks for offering up some freebies Paul!
