their FAQ says

"Are there different versions of this collectible for different territories?

There are no plans for different versions or variants based on territory at this time."

That's what made me wonder if there would be a sideshow version. They say there won't be region specific variants but maybe there will be a non-region variant:)

If your not a big gamer you won't know much about it but I'll fill you in a little on it. Starcraft is arguably the best selling and most popular RTS (real time strategy games) of all time still to this day millions of people play the original. And this statue is to commemorate the coming of StarCraft 2. It's safe to say when it's released it breaks numerous sales records...in Korea I'm sure it will sell more than 5-6 million copies in record time.

Here is the picture the statue is based on

This image is located on the Starcraft2 site in the wallpaper page. I am sure this was one of the images used in creating the statue. I am going to print it then laminate it, and give this to my son to go along with the statue. It is great timing since his birthday is this October.

What's the ES on this and where is it shipped from when ordered from the EU? Anyone know? Shipping costs are quite high, 49EUR or so but i don't want to get hit by import taxes as well so i need to know where from it will be sent before i order. Probably shoot 'em an email, but maybe someone on here knows.

I'm still on the fence on this one. I think it looks great but I have never played the game and if SC2 doesnt get released on 360 (wich I doubt) chances are I'll never play it...

It will most likely be released on the 360 later on, just look at how well the LOTR: TBFME RTS did on the system. To much profit to pass up for the devs.

Doesn't matter, the statue rocks. You should especially buy it, with all your videogame statues it will fit right in. Anyways, I like it a lot. For me it also brings up association with the warhammer 40k universe, so that's reason enough for me to buy it. Looks awesome.

I tried putting in my order but I dont have enough funds on my cc at the moment so I get an error. At the end of the checkout it says "I also understand that I will be charged for the full amount detailed on this page, via the payment method I have provided, when I have completed the preorder form." so I guess I'll have to wait another week or so.

When I put my order in it verified my account for $50 not the whole amount. So you should only need an available balance of $50.

Well crud.

Tried to preorder, filled in all of the info, but after I clicked to send in my order at the last page, it said there was an error and I had to start over. Now when I try to preorder again, when I get to the part where you enter your CC information and fill in their randomly generated code, it won't let me go any further. When I click continue, it just reloads that same page with a new code.

From their FAQ.

How big is the actual collectible?

The dimensions of the product are approximately: 15” W (381 mm), 18” H (457.2 mm), 12” D (304.8 mm). The product weighs approximately 17 lbs. (7.71 kg).

It doesn't really say on the website. Considering Sideshow has the license to create WOW products, and they created this statue, it would seem that Sideshow/Blizzard has good relationship. If this statue sells out, it would only be logical for that relationship to continue. Hopefully with busts and dioramas included in the mix, as I really don't have room for too many statues.

Starcraft is a 10 year old title. I know there is still a lot of love for it the US, however that's nothing compared to its popularity in South Korea.

StarCraft has helped shape the modern South Korean economy relating to the tech sector.

They have a television station devoted to covering (mainly) StarCraft Tournaments 24 / 7.

Here's a page on blizzard's sites talking about some world wide products for Blizzard (most are from South Korea):

http://www.blizzard.com/insider/017/overseasmerchandise.shtml

There's a book listed call "Starcnomics" which outlines the impact of StarCraft on the Korean economy.

Here's a blog page about Blizzard announcing StarCraft 2 the pc game at the World Wide Invitational in South Korea:

http://www.1up.com/do/blogEntry?bId=8135470&publicUserId=4549175

This was held at the Olympic Stadium there.

If you check out the vid about 1/3 of the way down you can see the people present just for the announcement of StarCraft 2.

I think they had a lot more for the actual tournament.

And you can see a lot of vids of South Korean SC tournaments on you tube.

"A valid credit or debit card is necessary for pre-order. The card will be charged at the time the pre-order is placed"

That's exactly what's happened. Sold-out now and there's no waitlist for the EU customers because they've already charged everyone that ordered.

Wanted this but had some cc issues and missed out, but even if i could've ordered it i probably wouldn't have before it sold out because of the strange policy to charge us EU customers so far ahead of actual release.
