I received my e-mail - it's cool that they're allowing previous buyers of Premium Fomat figures direct from SS to preorder first:
"Collectors who have purchased a figure from our Star Wars Premium Format line
directly from Sideshow Collectibles (phone or online), and had it shipped out prior
to February 7th, 2007, will be qualified to place a pre-order for the Sideshow Exclusive
Darth Maul Premium Format figure beginning at 10 AM PST on Tuesday, February 13th.
Prior to the Special Order Event, qualified collectors should see a red Darth
Maul banner at the top of their online account home page under the welcome message.
Qualified collectors must log in to their Sideshow online user accounts at
10 AM PST on Tuesday, February 13th to access the ordering link on their account
It's a great looking statue, but I'm going to pass. I have the Kotobukiya version which is really nice, so I'll have to be happy with that. Besides, I'm not willing to take the hit to the wallet that the PF will require.
