Well, they just took my order for them now. 

They'd been gone for a couple of days and I was unable to place an order, receiving an arbitrary error message each time I tried.  But just now it went through pretty easily.  Confirmation email has already arrived. 

Go figure.

Congrats Brent - at least one of us still interested was able to order.

I'm still getting this:

"Sorry, an error occurred with the item you have chosen, we cannot add it to your cart."

Those ******** won't even let me add it to my wish list.

I'm getting the same thing, error and I can't add itt to my wish list! Then I go use another browser and I get "This product is currently unavailable".

It's the cookie thing all over again!  >:(  Empty them out all over again!  ::)

That's truly bizarre.  The error message Jesse quoted is exactly what I'd been seeing of late.  And at one point the whole piece had disappeared from the website. 

Then last night, presumably fueled by Scotch and beer, it showed up.  Confirmation email received.

This is not to say it won't result in an email from SWS.com's crack smokin' monkey saying oops, we forgot to turn that off last night ::)  But I can hope and at worst I get nothing, what I deserve for dragging my ass.  The consolation is that SWS.com's reputation for screwing things up will continue to be solid as a rock. :P

edit: just took a wander over to the site and it's absolutely gone again.  Maybe I just caught a cancelled order or they found some more in the back ::)

I can't believe these are already gone :o. From the mixed reaction in the announcement I would have thought they had several left to sell ???? Or is it a trick to get us to order more? Glad I ordered mine right in the beginning because...when you wait/ You're late. 8)

Can I suggest that the ad be removed from this site since it's "no longer available?"  It just keeps taunting me everytime I see it.

Actually, SWS.com provides that ad, so we have little control over that.

It is cruel though, isn't it?   :'(   ;)

Rebelscum has front and back carded shots of the Cover OP Trooper.

Note the error on the back: It says the figure was created to celebrate the release of the final chapter on DVD and VHS. Uhhh sorry Hasbro but ROTS isn't coming out on VHS or Beta for that matter. Just another example of the left hand not knowing what the right hand is doing.  ::)

He keeps popping up from time to time so I'd sit tight...

I've found him several times over the past week on the SWshop, but it never lets me add any to my cart....  Just worried about not picking up another exclusive brings cold feelings to my heart.

I think Jeff is helping me out on this one though  ;)

That's some kickass packaging. Like I've said before, I wish they'd used this on the basic ROTS figure line. :'(

He popped up today, but I wasted so much time trying to sign up for Hyperspace via the Early Bird free trial - hoping I'd get a discount - that the damned thing sold out.
