But did you divine some of the information that I offered in my article, oh great old cocky bastard?

Added a blowup of the card

Now I got you Nick...the Bubble Insert shows the same image that was leaked a few months back

Holo Emperor? A Holo version of a figure I already have?

Pass.

They went through with including the Star Case in the price, which is a good positive step. Maybe they'll really pull off a stunner and use some bubble wrap or peanuts when they ship it, too... one can dream.

I still think this should have been in the regular assortment.  It would have been a nice way to trumpet the changes (or at least one of the good ones) for the DVD.

Floating head is still a better idea I think.  This'll be ok for a while though.

Thanks for the head's up Fish.   ;)

Ordered mine, now I'll just have to wait and pray that at least one of 'em shows up in mint condition...

Of course, the buttdarts at SWS.com are apparently charging sales tax on not only the figure, but also the shipping charges.  At least that's what it looks like on my bill.  Go figure.  With both of those factors added in, my Emperors came out to $14.63 each, or almost 3x what they should be...   :-\

**** that ****, I'll wait until they're actually for sale. I don't even care what condition the card comes in.

$14.63 is WAY too much for a rereleased and modified figure that I bought for about $10 less around 6 years ago...

It appears that my order went through alright.  But the image on the bubble insert pretty much seals the deal that the monkey eyed woman has been replaced in TESB with Ian McDiarmid.

Eh. I'm indifferent. I might get it, but then again, I might not.

I would have bought it if it shipped by Friday, but since it won't ship till October, no rush.

Anyone willing to help out a Hyperspace-less brother?

I know they'll probably be more available later to us non-HS folks, but I'm kinda thinkin' I should cover my bases just in case...  :-\

Like Nataku, I hate to have to do this, but my rampant paranoia that this will be yet another case of SW.com completely ignoring the non-pay side of their web ventures forces me to throw myself on the mercy of you Hyperspace subscribers.   :'(

So could anyone out there help me out with one Holo Emperor as well?  I'd even go so far as to say that if SWS.com does manage to damage the figure's card in shipment, I'll take the one that is most damaged (as long as the figure's okay, I'll be fine).

If I were to see this at Wal-Mart for $4.77, then I'd definately grab it - it looks pretty cool. But for $14... No way. Looks like the only way I'll be getting this one is if they don't sell out and some day have a half-off clearance sell.

I'm still not a Hyperspace member. I thought that was included in the Insider subscription. >:(
