I know you typed "NM", but for the record, they charged me shipping on my order, so I'm pretty sure they're mailing these orders out, and there's no need to go to the CON.

Yeah, that was my clue too.  When I originally went there I only saw one  Blue Snags listing and it didn't have a purchase option, so I figured you had to reserve and get it at the show or something.  But once I logged in there was a second Blue Snags listed that you can just buy.  It says it will be shipped after the con.

I signed up a month or so ago.  Your membership is manually processed, so should happen sometime on Monday and you should be all set.

As I understand, you would need to be present at SDCC to order one of these, right?  I have the membership, but not going to the Con - can I still get one?   :-\

*EDIT* NM - just placed my order.   8)

Thanks for the info guys.  I sure hope they intialize my membership before the blue Snaggletooth pre-order sells out.  Hard to believe it has to be setup manually.

If I were you, to be sure, I'd send an email to "customerservice@gentlegiantstudios.com" right now, and let them know you just bought a Premier Guild membership, and want to preorder the SDCC Jumbo Blue Snaggletooth.  And ask them to email you as soon as you are eligible to make that purchase as well.

Might not make any difference, but then again, it couldn't hurt either.

Also, I know I mentioned this before, but make sure you get that free one time promotional code (in email) to get your free gift for signing up.  And one of those is the Jumbo Gamm. Guard.

I emailed them yesterday.  They'll probably be manually emailing a lot of people tomorrow.

I don't know about anyone else, but I actually prefer the narrow cards to the full size replica cardbacks.

I'm just glad that he comes on any card, since the original figure was a mailaway, I don't think that one was carded at all.  So, now Jumbo Blue can hang on my wall like everyone else.  :)

I'm with you Jay.  The usual cards are so big that I can't even display them, so I end up taking them out of the package.  Blue Snags is tight enough that I might leave him sealed.  I hope they still use the resealable packaging.

It's the same as the others, just not as wide.  You can see in that video when they open the figure.

I managed to get my order in for the blue Snaggletooth.  I'm glad I preordered it early because it looks like they sold out of the preorders.

Preview night 6:03 I get a phone call from a Friend and he said he has my Blue snag in his hand, Must be nice to have a Exhibitor badge. I'm glad I gave him the cash before he headed down there.Got to meet him later to pick it up.
He's no good to me open

Here is a cool Jumbo Kenner figure display at SDCC

Where in the hell is Greedo?!  I thought he was originally due in Feb of this year, now he's not even in their display with upcoming figures?  What gives?

He's there, right behind Walrusman.

Here's another shot of the display from AFI:
