Has anyone started collecting these? I just completed a full set and they are AWESOME. If you like the Gentle Giant maquettes, these character keys are a great companion piece for them.

Looks like there's gonna be a Sidious exclusive at San Diego comic-con this year - sweet!!!

i can't believe mike of razor's edge took the time to email everyone that ordered one of these keys!

unfortunately the ARC keys are all sold out but thus far, the service has been great from these guys and i'm glad i preordered a set of CW bust ups from them.

That was the second time I spoke witj Mike, he seemed easy going. I tried to make it to the store when I was in NYC a few weeks back, but didnt make it there. I will hit it up the next time I am there though.

Ok, I'm into these things now. I picked up the Exclusive Tarkin key at Celebration IV. ACME had a great bunch of guys to talk to and they informed mt that they're doing a bunch more -so I'm not worried about getting the already sold out pieces.

Errrr! I got Kit and Dooku on Sideshow's waitlist. I have a feeling that I'll be ordering Ventress from Razor's Edge.

The Character Keys are great. I've been collecting them for a while now and have a complete set. Just received Tarkin last week and he looks great. :yes:

I really like the Clone Wars Giclees ACME has released as well. They're bigger than the Character Keys at 16"X20" and are limited to 500 pieces. Not sure why their popularity hasn't taken off like the Keys have but I almost like them more.

If you liked that one Snags you'll love the other 2. You can still pick them up at ACME's site but they're running low on stock. Shipping is free too.

Jayspawn
06-13-2007, 09:50 PM
Bah! I have Ventress now. Razor's Edge has fast shipping dont they?

pm sent BlueSnags.

I recieved my Dooku and Kit Fisto Keys in the mail from Sideshow. I dont believe this, 5 keys in just a month! You know they got me hooked now.

Funny though, the Kit and Dooku keys went from waitlist straight to shipped from SS right after BlueSnags hooked me up with Dooku and Anakin. :lipsrsealed:

Thanks for the info Jay, thats the first I've heard of the TIE Pilot. Looks really cool. :thumbsup:

Managed to get an order in for the ACME TIE Pilot key today. Apparently it sold out in 10-12 minutes.

SWS.com and RazorsEdge will be carrying it starting 7/16, so if anyone missed it today, keep checking those sites.:whip:

Thanks for the info Snags but the one i REALLY want is the Sandtrooper key!

Hellboy
07-11-2007, 12:14 AM
Darn, darn, darn :frus: I forgot about the TIE Pilot Key yesterday.

Thanks for the heads-up on the other sites carrying it though Snags. :thumbsup: Looks like that is where I'll be looking for mine.

Yeah whats the deal with that one? I wasn't aware of it until I did a search for SW Character Keys on eBay today and there it was. I know its supposed to be for the SDCC but is there any other info on it's online availability? I couldn't find anything on ACME's site regarding it. :confused:

I got the Sandtrooper key preordered but passed on the X-Wing sketchplate. I could've sworn the R2 plates were only $30!

Cant wait for the non-attandee preorder.

The Non-Attandee preorder goes up soon (today)! Hopefully I'll be able to get this one and wont have the same disaster happen as did with the TIE Key.

Hellboy
07-25-2007, 07:17 PM
It was supposed to go up at 5pm PST but I don't see it yet?? :confused:

Jayspawn
07-25-2007, 07:19 PM
Its up! GOT ONE!

Hellboy
07-25-2007, 07:21 PM
Is there a link on the main page? I still don't see it???

Jayspawn
07-25-2007, 07:22 PM
Did you get one Hellboy?

Hellboy
07-25-2007, 07:22 PM
No I can't find it?

Jayspawn
07-25-2007, 07:25 PM
The guys over at RS are saying its sold out! :confused:

Hellboy
07-25-2007, 07:26 PM
WTF!!! :upset:

I've been refreshing the main page for 25 min. and never saw a thing. This is complete BS.

Where did you find the order page Jay?

Jayspawn
07-25-2007, 07:32 PM
www.characterkey.com

Hellboy
07-25-2007, 07:40 PM
I don't get it I was checking that page and the main page non-stop since before 5pm PST and I could never add the item to my cart and the "Comic Con Attendee Pre-order" never switched to a non-attendee pre-order. :cry:

Jayspawn
07-25-2007, 08:01 PM
The page is down now. Hmmm? I made sure to clear my cookies this time and I got through ordering in less than a minute.

Jayspawn
08-03-2007, 03:13 PM
HEY! The CE Exclusive TIE Pilot Key is IN STOCK over at StarWarsShop.com! GO! GO! GO!

Hellboy
08-03-2007, 07:25 PM
Thanks for the heads up Jay I missed this one when it went up initially so I snagged 1.

I was also able to get a friend of mine to pick me up the Sandtrooper Key at the SDCC since I wasn't able to get it off ACME's site a while back. Got me a Cody bust too. :D

figrin bran
08-03-2007, 10:50 PM
#705 of the Sandtrooper keys is all mine! :D

Jayspawn
08-15-2007, 12:15 AM
Hey! Hey! I recieved my CE TIE Pilot and SDCC Sandtrooper Key today! Need to stop by Walgreens and get some frames now. The Sandtrooper key has a nice color contrast to the other-darker ones.

Jayspawn

Looks like Durge is the latest Character Key. Despite the rumors round the net that Boba Fett was the next, Durge is going to be the 2nd to last Clone Wars key.

I'm hoping that Roron Corrob is the last.

09-08-2007, 07:32 PM
Any details on when Durge is going to be released?

Jayspawn
09-09-2007, 05:15 PM
They havnt posted any release info yet. They've just shown it. Still wondering what the last CW Key will be.

Jayspawn
09-11-2007, 10:41 AM
FYI, the Sandtrooper Key is IN STOCK at SWS.com!

Jayspawn
09-23-2007, 09:26 PM
Another heads up, the Durge Character Key goes up on sale TOMORROW at 11am PST at www.CharacterKey.com

Hellboy
09-23-2007, 10:01 PM
Glad you're on top of when these Keys go up Jay because I always seem to forget. Thanks for yet another reminder. :thumbsup:

My CC got charged for the key and some people online have recieved theirs already.

Jayspawn
10-05-2007, 05:46 PM
WOAH! The Exclusive Boba Fett Key is up at SWS.com.....NOW!!!

Go!

My Durge arrived today. I have to say, it was nice of FedEx to send me an email saying it was delivered at my house at a specific time.

I'm ordering the Fett print tomorrow.

Jayspawn
10-12-2007, 08:39 PM
FedEx has been doing that for me too -love it!

Another heads up, EE is offering an Exclusive Darth Stewie Character Key over that their site. I went ahead and preordered one. I plan on mixing it with my other keys as an odd-ball.

figrin bran

#28 of the Boba Fett keys arrived at my home today! :D

I picked up a Ventress key at my SW club's fall festival yesterday. Fett should arrive Monday or Tuesday.

Jayspawn
10-22-2007, 12:49 PM
He has a SW Club. Wish my state had one. My Boba should be arriving soon methinks.

Jayspawn
01-13-2008, 05:13 PM
Well its been a while. Since the last post I've picked up the Animated Boba Fett and Darth Stewie Keys. ACME has also said that they have the LAST Clone Wars Key in the works. I'm campaigning hard for Roron Corob or Foul Moudama.

OC47150
01-13-2008, 06:46 PM
I'd be pleased with either Roron or Foul.

I could see the series continuing for a while. A lot of interesting characters still out there.
