I'm getting the word that it's back up now... if you're just getting a white screen and it's loading, let it do it's thing - I believe it puts you in a line and as soon as someone gets done, it lets you in - only a certain number of people can be on at a time. :duff

The Josh
12-16-2005, 11:29 AM
I'm getting that message now as well Frank. Looks as if this new method may not work on the more desirable Pre-Orders because everyone is just gonna do what we are setting here trying to order. This happened with the Gondorian Helm Collection and the Pippin statue saying it will be up during a time frame doesn't seem to work out. As much as it sucks to miss out maybe it would be better just to toss it up and see who gets what.

That is absolutely what I am worried about. What if this had been an exclusive with an edition size of 250 to 500, as we sometimes see? 15 minutes to place an order might not be enough time with a truly small exclusive size. Shudder...

I would just like to order "an" Anakin at this point, exclusive or not, though the little holo sidious looks pretty cool. I can't load anything other than the main page on Sideshow, my account link, login link and the star wars link are all getting slammed:horror

Can you imagine how bad it would be if Sideshow hadn't made the newsletter changes and anybody could follow a link from rebelscum, etc. and add to the server congestion?

Yes I can. It would have ment I would either know if I had any chance of getting one by now. I've spent the last 47 minutes trying to load 1 page.

Oh yes....how lovely that you go back to check out your pre-order. Would you like a sidedish of smack-u-in-the-face with that? As if the damn servers arent stressed enough.

Actually all I did was hit the back button to look at the pictures on the order page which doesn't cause any stress on sideshows servers. The refresh button would have asked their servers to reload the page on my computer.

Maybe you could shove that sidedish of smack-u-in-the-face up your ass instead?

The stress and anticipation every time I saw the load screen made ordering Annie all the sweeter.
Granted, the server stuff sucked, but I'm actually greatful to SSC for the opportunity to order up first. Took me twenty agonizing minutes, but I like the system. I'm all in for the next one.
And SSC is being rewarded by having their product sell out at record pace (and record price) AND they now have a lot more newsletter subscribers to advertise to. All in all, this was a brilliant move.

To those of you still having problems, I saw this suggestion over at Rebelscum:

Clear your browser's cache and cookies, close out of your browser completely, go to this link to log-in to your USER account:

http://www.sideshowtoy.com/cgi-bin/myhistory.cgi

and use the link that's under the "you are subscribed to our newsletter" message. I'm not as technically-minded as some people, so I don't know if this theory has any merit or not, but I suppose it's worth a shot!

And don't give up - there are people on RS that have been trying since it started and have finally gotten their confirmation!

okay i finally got through. the only reason it went through this time was because i didn't use my coupon code. i had a coupon code for $20 off. and it showed up on the order form but when i pressed the "place your order" i got the error message. so i decided to finally try it without the coupon code and it went through. what's up with that. at least i got through.

Actually....the biggest reason I'm pissed off has nothing to do with SideShow or even closely related to a computer or internet. But this just triggered it off.

To those of you still having problems, I saw this suggestion over at Rebelscum:

Clear your browser's cache and cookies, close out of your browser completely, go to this link to log-in to your USER account:

http://www.sideshowtoy.com/cgi-bin/myhistory.cgi

and use the link that's under the "you are subscribed to our newsletter" message.

And don't give up - there are people on RS that have been trying since it started and have finally gotten their confirmation!

*wipes sweat from brow*
I Cleared both my browser's cache and cookies first thing, and still had problems.

Exactly, blowing up the Sideshow Building because an order for a figure cant be placed!?!? Man I thought I had problems.

Just FYI, Coupons do not work for Pre-Orders. Only for items in stock.

Wouldn't have gotten two anyway but congrats. That reminds me, though, anyone who actually DOES end up not being able to get the figure should probably sign up for the wait list as soon as possible, because of all the people managing to get 2 figures(one of which will get struck eventually).


EXACTLY right! The first people who sign up for the waitlist will probably get the figure - we have even contacted wait list members for the Exclusive Premium Format Han Solo, which only had a limit of 250 - because there are ALWAYS cancellations, credit card declines and people who order over the limit :p Of course the Waitlist is in no way a guarantee - but it's playing the odds :)

This brought up a good point. If somebody orders 2 figures, it will get sorted out eventually, and they will only ship one. BUT...as far as this morning goes, will the two get subtracted from the running tally, causing it to sell out sooner?

edit- OOPS- There's my answer.

Yeah, exactly my thought right now. I have no idea what I've ordered. The only photo I've seen is posted here on this board. But I dont want to make the traffic thing any worse by just randomly browsing the SideShow site.

LOL when Han Exc went up for order someone in the "IT" department accidently put the limit at 2. I promptly got an email oops sorry we have adjusted your order.

I've stayed off the site once I placed my order. Besides I had enough time to read the entire product description and look at all the pictures (I didn't enlarge any) by the time the next page loaded.
I noticed no Mini Binoculars in the description, I would've thought he came with them but maybe it's an unofficial piece of Jedi Equipment.

In and out in around a minute!:D

However, I've just received my Forbidden Planet newsletter and it's advertised there (non-exclusive) at 22.99!!! That's a 34% saving! The exclusive would cost me over double that!

So, my exclusive's now going back in the mix.

Happy days.

for everyone's info, I had no trouble getting in when i went in through the past email from Sideshow.
I hate to use the cliche, but, really, no pain, no gain. this is a cool looking figure and you will definitely appreciate it even more for all the hard work and stress you put in to getting it.
I'll admit, at first, I wasn't impressed with the new ordering system, but that's not really what's at fault. This was SS's first shot at this. I know if I were threatened with death and destruction everytime something went wrong the first time I tried something...well...let's just see how it works next time. I'm just happy I got one....and you will be too! James

I think we should thank Sideshow for increasing the edition size of the exclusive Anakin the way they did, compared to the smaller size for Luke. With 1750 of these to go around, most people are complaining that it took an hour to order--instead of complaining that it sold out before they could get one. We all had access at the same time to a much larger pool of figures. Could that have been more fair?

that wasn't directed soley to you wook...I could hear several fuses being lit all though the board...I'm glad you've resisted the dark side!
I'm not sure I've ever felt this geeked up about a figure before. Although when the marvel famous covers first came out, I was pretty pumped. Megos were SO cool..

I patiently waited for almost an hour, refreshed when I had a chance and was able to purchase the Anakin Exclusive without any stress. :peace

Fortunately, I'm not as big a Star Wars fan as Lord of the Rings, otherwise I may have been freaking out. :p :D
