So who was able to put their preoder in within the first 5 minutes of it going up for sale?

I was surprised how fast it went. I was so glad I was close to a computer when it went up.

Missed this by 2 minutes. Couldn't get my order to completely go through. Have to rely on the waitlist. I was very surprised it took 5 minutes to sell out especially at an ES of 1250. They must have sold a bunch at SDCC.

I was on the site at the time they opened it for sale. My page kept saying it wasnt available yet. So I am on the waitlist as of 10 minutes after going on sale, or two minutes too late. I hope ppl cancel or something cause i really wanted one. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/frown.gif

Man I remember when the Original one came out, I managed to order an Exclusive version. Then a month before it's release I decided to cancel it! http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/shocked.gif Ugh!!! I thought for sure I would be able to pick this up later for around retail price. Boy was I wrong. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/frown.gif

As of today I'm still looking.

Yep that really gets on my nerves when these scalpers jump in and us real collectors miss out. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/mad.gif
I wonder what my chances are with the wait list?

I hope both our chances are good. Hopefully idiots will stop paying these outrageous prices and scalpers can figure out that there is no money to be made. Guess we will have to wait around ship time. Then it will unfold.

Hope you guys score it. I'm on the wait lists for several nice items...Stealth Iron Man will be the centerpiece of my star wars collection. ;p

I don't understand why this is so much money. It's OK, but not $700.00 OK.

I managed to score one. This will be my first Marvel piece. I was a huge comic book nut as a kid and I love this stuff. I am also on the hunt for a Bowen Surfer chrome statue.

With all the amazing Marvel stuff out there, I may have to refocus my collection and be more picky with my Star Wars stuff.

Hopefully, I'll get one of the waitlist after they crack down on all the scalpers who bought multiples.

btw- i am trading my Luke ROTJ&ANH sabers for one.

Do you think that ppl were able to buy more than one on their account during the selling period? If so, then there is hope.

I saw on the newsletter that they had 15 cancellations on this statue.
Has anyone heard from SS or had their Waitlist converted?
I'm hopeing that I'm one of the lucky 15.

I am, but it hasn't shipped yet. It seems like Canada always gets things a bit later - but well worth the wait. The pics I've seen have been amazing - I don't mind the slight change in colour - I just hope I don't have any QC issues.

Im not sure if I want to send mine back, I do have some marks, but nothing I cant live with...

Well, I got mine today! It's a wonderful piece and A LOT bigger than I thought, but sadly mine has paint defects too. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/frown.gif

Do you have like white spots on it? Also, when I first took it out, it felt like it had some type of residue on it. Not sticky, but it kind of felt oily. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/confused.gif

ambasah
01-26-2008, 10:14 PM
the oily stuff was an apparent innovation to protect the item during shipping - too bad they decided to pack it using a hard plastic as "protection" as well.

The oily residue can be buffed out.

It's really sad to see so many people with damaged statues - SS should learn from Attakus on how to package statues.

deathstar1000

I sent them an e-mail. I just want to see their response.

Also, it didn't come with an AC Adapter, right? I see it's ready for one though.

aceattorney
01-28-2008, 01:23 PM
Finally got around to opening up the box...It looks so much better in person.

But yeah, I've got the white scuff marks on mine too - on the top of his left thigh.

aceattorney
01-28-2008, 01:26 PM

Well, I finally got a reply back. This is what they said:

Thank you for taking the time to contact our Returns Department. Iím so sorry to hear that your Stealth Iron Man arrived damaged.

In order to better assist you, please provide .jpg photos of the damage to your statue as well as the number printed on your base. Please make sure that all photos are clear, focused, and contain either the base with the number displayed or a piece of paper with your full name, order number and base number clearly printed. We would like detail of the damage as well as a clear view of the affected area.

Sideshow Collectibles always welcomes collector feedback so that we may improve our products and services. Based on suggestions received from owners of our previous Iron Man products, we have improved the internal packaging and packing procedure for the Stealth Iron Man statue and continue to welcome any feedback.

Thank you for your cooperation and patience while we work to find the best resolution possible.

Please let me know if you have any further concerns or questions.

I love where she says that they improved their packaging.

Now I need to take some pics.

I know I just had to buy a 4.5v adapter from Radio Shack for mine.

For once, being a Canadian collector worked in my favour. I hadn't received mine yet, and just got an email from SS advising me a "new shipment" of these will be in their warehouse in 2 weeks with "new" packaging to prevent damage.

I can't wait !

My statue has been sent back and I'm now awaiting the replacements to come in. Hopefully we won't have any probs the second time around!

ambasah
03-07-2008, 01:14 AM
well, my statue is finally here and I am glad to report no damage! But I was a little disappointed with some of the paint application (not an issue unless you look really close in a couple of spots). But I am happy overall.

A couple of pics:

Question for those of you that returned it. I got an e-mail on Monday that SS was going to e-mail a shipping label. I have yet to recieve it. Should I worry? http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/confused.gif

Forbidden Plaent here in the U.K got a bunch of these in stock last week and were selling them for below retail.
I was lucky enough to get an order in thanks to a heads up over at the statue forum.
I was lucky enough to recieve one with no paint issues too!
