That would be very cool. I'd have to consider getting those since I have those maquettes coming.

Recon,

How do you like your Print?  I finally decided to get the Sidious key, so now I have the Arc, Sidious, Anakin and mace keys.  Need padme, Yoda, Obi and Grievous.

Dave,

Our you Couting Asajji?  It will be on sale tomorrow from razors edge.  Both these keys look great, however, that is not the final product with the Shaak Ti key and it will change before it is released, so it will probally be even beter.

Is it just me or have they raised the prices on these? $36.25 for a key is expensive IMO. And why is the foreign key cheaper than the US key? Only $30 if you live outside the US but $36.25 inside the US?

After you take away the shipping, it comes out to be around $31 for the key, which is more expensive than any of the other keys released so far.

I am thinking they will stay around this price.  It is higher but still not to bad.

Got my Assajj in the mail today too... 929/1250. I ordered this like the minute they went on sale, but yet 928 people got theirs before me? Doesn't make any sense. Anyway...

Still looking for General Greivous if anyone has one... it's the only one I need  :(

Shaak Ti was supposed to be released along with the second character key framed set today but both will be pushed back due to problems with the check out.

Just as an FYI - anyone who ordered the Shaak Ti key cel, if you have not gotten your order yet, contact ACME as soon as you can. I contacted them because I've been seeing around the 'net that people are getting these in the mail, yet my credit card hasn't even been charged for my order yet. Seems there was some kind of problem with the ordering process and my credit card information wasn't submitted to ACME.

Hopefully this isn't going to be a Gentle Giant fiasco all over again  ::)

Not sure what I think about it.  I do not think I will collect this line, just the Clone Wars.

Really? What don't you like about it?

Personally I would have rather gotten Darth Vader, or Boba Fett. Or if it just had to be Leia, I would have preferred the original ANH white outfit. But I'll take this one, just the same.

I guess it comes down to character choice and the scene.  While I think the Key actually looks good it just does not interest me personally.

I'm hearing from another source that Grievous was the second key, before Obi-Wan (who was third)... anyone?
