Just got my e-mail from SS that my premium format Leia will be charged on the 14th and shipped out soon after...great news!!
here is what the e-mail said.....

Dear Valued Collector,


Thank you for your pre-order of our Princess Leia – Sideshow Exclusive Premium Format Figure (item #71191) from our Star Wars Premium Format Figure Collection. We appreciate your patience in awaiting the arrival of this Limited Edition, Sold Out collectible.


At this time, we would like to inform you that this item is estimated to arrive into our warehouse within the next 7-10 days.

Re: Sideshow Leia processing next week!!

I havnt received anything yet. Not on her, nor my Kit or my Darth vader SDCC yet. I just changed my e-mail recently and have double checked my address and whats in my address book.

Re: Sideshow Leia processing next week!!

Got my notice as well. It should be interesting to see the reaction on the size of this piece. Recall that Leia is considerably shorter than all the other characters and will be in scale to the other PF figures.

Re: Sideshow Leia processing next week!!

Can't wait to finally get this one. I ordered the regular edition so mine won't be delivered until after the exclusive pieces go out.
Post some pics when you get it, guys!

Leia will be around 16 inches tall compared to Vader who is 23 inches tall. So the scale differences are there to represent the characters correctly. There is also another benefit aside from the accurate scale difference between the characters, the shipping for this one should be a lot cheaper as well. Shipping to Canada for this PF is only a small 35.47! Which is great for me, some of the other PF's shipping fees have just been really high for international shipping.

So FartVader, looks like you are continuing your SS PF collection. I know you were looking to sell off the previous ones you had. Are you still looking sell, or will you be keeping them now?

Re: Sideshow Leia processing next week!!

Looks like I will be keeping them. I never really wanted to sell them, but at the time circumstances dictated otherwise. It's tough but I cannot let go of these statues.

Re: Sideshow Leia processing next week!!

I don't blame you on wanting to keep your PF's FartVader. I think you would have really regretted selling them, these statues are great! I can’t wait for Leia to arrive at my house

Just as I pay off Grievous....


Broke, but happy! This stuff has been wonderful to display and enjoy.

There is a spot next to the MR Leia blaster saved for the SideShow Princess.

They don't want you to have any money left to spend on their competitors' products at the convention!

Re: Sideshow Leia processing next week!!

Alright...I got my email confirmation as well. I really wish I had somewhere to display this beautiful piece of art. For now, I guess it will have to sit in the box on top of the the 1:4 scale Vader I have. Eventually, I'll get a place big enough to show these things off.

Their timing does indeed blow. Let's see what's being charged in a two week span...

Greedo 1:1 bust
Princess Leia PF statue
Kit Fisto 12"
Vader Sith 12"

last month it was Darth Maul 1:1 bust, Anakin 12", and General Grievous PF figure all in one shot as well.

This is, of course, only painful if you pre-ordered all these items.

Re: Sideshow Leia processing next week!!

I am on the waitlist so I hope there are some people who change their minds on this! Selfish I know . . .


I learned my lesson and order IMMEDIATELY now when I want something.

why don't you just look on the secondary market for a reputable seller...I get all my stuff from Razors Edge Collectables. I never pay Sideshow full retail!

Re: Sideshow Leia processing next week!!

If you want a PF figure, just order it. Seems like they take 10 to 12 months to ship and that should give anyone time to come up with the cash.

Im REAL tight on cash right now, but Im ordering Fett anyway. Figure he'll be ready come February or March-Taxtime!!

That and the fact Im a fetthead, so he's worth going into the poorhouse for.

Re: Sideshow Leia processing next week!!

yeah and plus if it gets close to time you can always cancel it if you don't have the cash or hack it on ebay and pay yourself back...no excuses here people!

But I say why not buy it off the vendors...why buy it directly from Sideshow and pay their ridiculous prices? I buy from my vendor and always save big time on money!

I got my 3(Han, Luke and Vader) off the bay and didnt pay full price for any of them. Leia However, I wanted the exclusive. That pose reminds me of the poster I had as a kid(man Id love to replace it!!)

I also think Fett is going to be so popular, the only way to get him is through SS

Re: Sideshow Leia processing next week!!

no that is ridiculous in a certain way...I personally know the vendor I buy from all teh time...and he always gets a lot of these figures...granted not the Exclusive ones, but I am never shut out of the regular editions...

I know what you mean about that Leia pose...this is going to be one hot figure...now only is they can do her in that laying down slave girl leia pose too! That would be hot!

Re: Sideshow Leia processing next week!!

I've noticed with the Sideshow stuff, unless you're getting the exclusive, there's almost no reason to go through Sideshow. The Leia sucks, because I really want the exclusive and it's $25 more than the regular; but then you see all the retailers selling the regular for ~$215. I like Sideshow's flex-pay, so I'll order the exclusives through that when I can.

Re: Sideshow Leia processing next week!!

plus it seems like the retailers ship theirs out faster so you get it quicker from them as opposed to if you ordered it directly from Sideshow

By the time I decided I wanted it, Razors Edge didn't have it on their site. Maybe they have it now but I haven't checked lately.

I had the exclusive Leia on preorder but decided to cancel it. Just couldn't justify the cost...hope I don't end up regretting it.

Re: Sideshow Leia processing next week!!

I'm on the waitlist for the exclusive, hopefully they just send it right on down to me. It is a lot of cash, but my girl would be stoked about getting it. Seems like a pretty good Birthday present.

Re: Sideshow Leia processing next week!!

I got the 7-10 day shipping notice eleven days ago, and nothing has happened yet. Not even a pending charge/preauthorization, which they do in advance of the items beginning to ship. I had hoped she would get shipped before SDCC but that's looking unlikely...

Well, I ordered the regular version (displaying Leia with her signature Sporting Blaster is the only way to go
) through Fireside so I'm going to have to wait longer then both of you!

Hopefully not too much longer though!

Re: Sideshow Leia processing next week!!

Absoultely stunning. I am hoping to get one off of eBay for around or under $200. It really completes the original PF ANH line. I would love to see a Stormtrooper though as well.

All the head-hanchos at SS are at SDCC, leaving someone behind to upkeep the site with shipping stats n whatnot and prolly jackin off.
I bet yours is on the postal truck as we speak.

If the WL didn't come through I would have went the same route via eBay.

I got the Fed-Ex email with tracking last night at around 8, then SS emailed me at 3AM with shipping stats.

Re: Sideshow Leia processing next week!!

Looks like I will have to be canceling this beauty...I'm foreseeing a lot of my funds going into SS 1/6 scale line of figures and accessories. It's still a win, win situation. Some lucky wait-list member for the exclusive will soon be getting an email unless I change my mind. Oh man this is going to hard, having to cancel this piece. Choices, choices...

Re: Sideshow Leia processing next week!!

My exclusive Leia shipped yesterday. Unfortunately it takes a week for me to get packages from CA.
