It's comments and bad attititude like that, that have kept me from coming back to visit you in Tennessee any more.  Jerk.

But I'll see you in our Comic Con room in a couple months though...

Even though you're still an *******.  And a belligerent one at that.

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  ::)).

The preorder line will probably be as bad but at least you're guaranteed to get your figure(s) at the end of it, unlike CIII.

What happens in the unlikely event that the line is so prohibitively long you literally can't get to the store? Or if you have an emergency and have to leave early? Wouldn't they have to ship it to you, despite their policy? I mean, as long as you were on record as having checked in at the con.

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

Strangely enough, you can pre-order up to 4 but you can only purchase 3 at the con. And conceivably you might be able to order 4 with case and 4 without, because they are separate items in the cart.

So I just got this e-mail from SWS.com tonight:

Dear Matt,

The holographic Princess Leia figure, appearing as a transparent image projected by R2-D2 in A New Hope, will be debuting at this year's San Diego Comic-Con, and StarWarsShop is making it available for pre-order now!
In an effort to cut down line-time so fans can enjoy all there is to see and do at Comic-Con, StarWarsShop is offering the chance to purchase figures in advance, allowing shoppers to simply pick them up at the Star Wars Pavilion with a purchase confirmation notice and photo ID. Advanced purchasers can come to the Pavilion throughout the show, during any hours the Comic-Con exhibit hall is open, to pick up their figures.

The holographic Princess Leia figure comes packaged on a unique card in the style of the retro Original Trilogy Collection, featuring the Comic-Con logo and scene from A New Hope displayed behind the figure.
Please Note that you must be able to pick this item up during Comic con in San Diego. You must also bring a photo ID and either your confirmation page or your confirmation e-mail to the StarWarsShop.com booth Comic-con in San Diego in order to claim your figure.

**** that.  I replied to them anyway:

That's lovely.  But what would be even more helpful than your head's up about the pre-order on the Leia figure is if the stupid thing would actually be LISTED on your site for pre-order at any point in the last 2 days since your supposed promotion started.  I've heard there's been a couple windows of about 10 minutes each when it actually showed up on your site.  The rest of the time, it's just been the same thing:

"This product is currently unavailable."

Totally worthless.  Thanks for nothing SWS.com, as usual.  I'll see you in the real line at Comic Con...

- Matt

P.S.  Love those two holographic blasters too.  That was by far my favorite scene in the whole saga!

Idiots.  ::)

Yep - and I don't understand what makes them think that $14.99 is a fair price for this figure?

I guess it's fair 'cause they know we'll pay it.  >:(

Now that is just plain weird! I wouldn't be too surprised if it was released to some online retailer based overseas. But on store shelves, and K-mart of all places??
