Premium Format Han Solo


I keep looking at Jared's pics of Han and thinking I might need to get one of these.  ::)  Since I have Leia pre-ordered, the two would look really sweet next to each other...

I wonder if the delay also impacts sws.com orders (for some reason I ordered through them). They list Jan 30 as ship.

My wallet can use the break though. I'd happily wait until later in the month.  :)

Looks like Sideshow goofed on their dates for the shipping info for Darth Vader:

"Orders placed prior to February 19, 2005 are expected to ship the week of February 1st, 2006.
Orders placed from February 19, 2005 and later are expected to begin shipping the week of February 20th, 2006 when we receive our final shipment of these statues."

Since I ordered right on Feb 19/05, it actually doesn't make a difference - it's still going to ship Feb 20/06.

Yet another update on Darth Vader:

"As previously notified, we will be receiving split shipments of the ¼ Scale Darth Vader Exclusive, the first due to arrive in our Los Angeles warehouse February 1st.

We have now received updated information that the 2nd shipment of the Darth Vader Sideshow Exclusive will be arriving in our Los Angeles warehouse the week of February 8th, therefore; we will begin processing all orders for this item beginning January 25, 2006. All orders will be fulfilled in the order in which they were placed."

If they can correct her lazy eye (her left, our right), it will be great.

We can definitely count on more changes to Leia before she starts to ship. I'm glad SS shows us these updated production pics as the statue progresses and that we can watch them fine tune it.

As for Han, I got my exclusive (HERE) and it looks amazing! I couldn't be happier. Not too long of a wait now for Vader either. :D

Nice, Mini-Rock. I really wish I had been more alert to get in on the exclusive version. I think the base makes a world of difference. Wasn't it limited to something crazy, like 250?

Yeah, 250 WW...that's it. It really is an awesome piece; the regular is also. Now, we only have a couple more weeks until Vader ships. :)

Best of luck.

I should be able to make it through this shipment, but the Grievous later this year might put my wife over the edge.

Not a peep from SWS.com, though it says "shipping Jan 30".

Edit: Eh, scratch that. It now says:

20" Darth Vader Statue with Mouse Droid
Ships Feb 15

So much for them putting the Mouse Droid version up for preorder first. Sideshow honored thier own customers first.
