View Full Version : Gentle Giant CIII Sandtrooper - Anybody Lucky Yesterday?

06-02-2005, 04:44 AM
GG sold a few hundred CIII Exclusive Sandtroopers to the collectors club members on their website yesterday. I tried and tried and tried, but between site crashes and PC issues, I missed out. Was anyone lucky enough to get one?

Oh, BTW everyone welcome back to the empty SW board.

Ahhhh, a fresh start.:banana

I got as far as the checkout when the site crashed and after that was never able to get passed the add to cart screen. So I missed out >:

Yeah, it was nuts.:bonk :bonk :bonk
I gotta be honest, I already have one, thanks to a friend who attended CIII, but I was trying to get another for my collection. I guess it wasn't meant to be.

I was lucky enough to get one as well. I started right at 9:00 and after an hour and a half of 30 sec refreshes, I got it. It was alot of work and I was relieved not to have to resort to the auction site!

I was unable to get one as well :(

I tried and tried but couldn't get through. I gave up and tried to order one 2.5 hours later, but it was already sold out. :sick

I lost out also. But I didn't try too hard.

I didn't try and then I didn't try and then I didn't try. Should I have tried? :dance

Didnt get one tried for 3 hours:google

I got stopped during checkout as well. After I clicked the last submit button, message said that item had sold out between the time I placed it in my cart and completed the checkout. I've never had that happen before, hopefully never will again.

Nope, site kept crashing. :puke

I just signed up for their collectors club email so I had no idea. Though, I've made a deal that will nab me one come SDCC time :)

I am not too sad about not getting this bust since I have the squad leader on order. The orange pauldren appeals to me better.

After an hour of refreshing, I was able to order one. Glad I did since I held up my wife and I from leaving to go eat lunch.

When I was at checkout, I hit submit twice, and I got TWO order confirmations. I assumed that they would fix the mistake, but I got two tracking #'s on Friday. The two should be here on Wednesday. :yay
