Did you preorder Sideshow's 12" ROTS Obi-Wan?
Last Friday, Sideshow Collectibles revealed and put up for preorder their 3rd 12" Star Wars figure, Obi-Wan Kenobi from Revenge of the Sith, and despite some server issues the Sideshow Exclusive version - limited to 1750 pieces - sold out during the Priority Preorder period with 45 minutes left to go before it went fully public, the fastest preorder sell-out time in the line so far. With an expected delivery date months away - likely the latter part of 2nd quarter '06 - Sideshow has again proven that the anticipation and demand surrounding this new 12" Star Wars line is running hot.
Sideshow's exclusive version of ROTS Obi-Wan comes with Grievous' blaster as the exclusive extra accessory, not the most important of accessories which should be an easy pill to swallow for those who missed out on the exclusive and could only preorder the regular version. The appeal of the ROTS version of Obi-Wan may be the highest yet of this Order of the Jedi series, as fans who didn't preorder Luke or ROTS Anakin have chimed in about getting this one.

I sort of regret not bothering to shoot for the exclusive version, but I did preorder the regular version. Out of the three, this has been the nicest one (I think), and I'm hoping for an Alec Guinness Obi-Wan to display along with it someday. I'll probably want to open this, and I just can't see doing that with the exclusive version, so...
(It's a bit weird having a "blaster hand" that comes with no blaster though.)
