Does anyone know when this figure will be available for order?

I hesitated with the holographic emperor and don't want to miss this one.  I wonder if this figure will be in OTC packaging?

If it follows the trend of last year, the figure will first be available at the big Summer conventions - WizardWorld, SDCC, etc.  Then, once the con season is over (August/September), the figure will go up on StarWarsShop.com to Hyperspace members first.

At least that's how it went for last year's Silver Sandtrooper and the Silver Fett the year before that, so I imagine it will be pretty much the same thing here...

What're the odds ... the day I bump this thread with an observation about a tangential subject, StarWars.com updates about the main topic:

Holo Leia Figure Debuts at Comic-Con -- Preorders Start June 1!

Looks like somebody finally learned a lesson from the gargantuan ****up known as CIII Vader. ::)

IMHO this isn't even that great of a figure sculpt. Precisely when did we ever see Holo Leia wield blasters?--not to mention two at once? Then there's the aforementioned scale issue. Bah, I say.

Anybody know what the price will be on these monstrosities? Like $19.99?  ::)

I'm toying with the idea of ordering from StarWarsShop.com if there are any left, simply so I could say I got one ... but then my internal governor is kicking in and I ask myself ... "What for?"

Call me cynical, but it seems like the Exclusive tag is just being randomly applied as a way to move crap that would never sell otherwise. In my book the only good exclusives of 2005 are Holo Yoda, Green Anakin Starfighter, and the Kohl's bonus fig sets.

Anybody get a pre-order placed already, or has it been like this all day?  Just curious if these pre-orders already sold out, or if it's worth checking back in later on.

I've been checking and either I missed it completely or it's not up yet.

I checked it out earlier before the GG crap and it came up "This product is currently unavailable".

Knowing my luck, it will come on when I go to bed soon.

If it does come up, can someone get me one please (2 would be great). I know I'm going to miss it.  :-\

This pre-order is just for SDCC pick-up right?

I was under the impression that this was all this was, a way for you to stand in the "Pre-Order" line instead of they "buying line" (although the lines will probably be equally long  ::)).

No use pre-ordering if you don't plan to be there to get your order...

"Fans who pre-order this figure must pick it up at the Star Wars Pavilion at Comic-Con, which is in the front row of the exhibit hall near Lobby D. Orders for figures that are not picked up will be cancelled and refunded. No holographic Leia figures ordered for pick-up at Comic-Con will be shipped. "

Sounds like you can't even place a pre-order for a buddy to pick up with all the "photo ID required" talk.

I guess I'll just wait until after SDCC to see if someone can help me land this exclusive...

You're right Jeff, you have to be going to the SDCC to pre-order it, they won't be shipping them to people.

But according to SW.com:

If supplies allow, there may be some of these figures available at the show for people who have not pre-ordered them, and StarWarsShop may also have some to offer online following the con...

We'll see if these show up later.

I was able to pre-order mine just fine just now. If this makes up for the cluster**** that was the C3 Vader 8 hour line, I'll be very pleased.
