I ordered mine from starwarsshop.com too, I used that $50. gift certificate they sent out after there site crashed!
Yeah, I know.... she sat at my house for a few weeks before I shipped it out. I should have told you it was broken and just kept it
Originally, Padme was solicited just like all the others, through Diamond Comics and GG direct. Somewhere along the way, it was changed over to a SWS.com exclusive. A buddy of mine owns a comic shop, and gets me all my GG stuff, and I had no idea they had switched it over to an exclusive. Then one day I find out AFTER it had sold out and started shipping, and was too late. No way I'm paying $500 for it on ebay now.
