Although the auction was placed through Ebay, I was able to pay with my credit card outside of Ebay so I could earn purchase points. Fortunately I didn't have to pay any Paypal fees.

I was given my choice of shipping option and opted to go with DHL because it was about $70 cheaper than FedEx.

It arrived in great condition. The piece is absolutely mint with no damage or QC issues. Old School Sideshow for sure!

As an added bonus, I was given a nice certificate of authenticity which Sideshow only does for auctions like this.

I'm so stoked to own this piece. It's honestly my favorite Star Wars collectible and probably the best Star Wars PF ever made.
Congrats. AWESOME piece!!!

Congrats, Gary. This has always been a great statue and your is even nicer

I also think it's pretty nice of SS to let you pick the shipping method, avoid PayPal fees, AND get points!

A conclusion is simply the place where you got tired of thinking.

Congrats! I agree, it is easily one of the best collectibles SS has ever put out.
