    Stupid Question Regarding SideShow Waitlists...

    My cash and I didn't quite make it in time to pre-order one of the Side Show Indiana Jones figures before they were "sold out". My question is, now that I've set myself up on a waitlist for one, how realistic is the expectation that I'll be able to get my hands on one? In general, is the waitlist a waste of time?

    Thanks,

    -Brian

    Hiya, Brian!

    I've had pretty good luck with the waitlists. As long as you're not after something "long gone", I'd say you have a really good chance, especially if you get in before the product starts shipping. I've gotten several things I was after due to "order cancellations", as SSC puts it.

    Good Luck!

    Cool, thanks...think my best bet would be with the non-exclusive?

    Your best bet at this point is probably the non-exclusive, though I know from idle discussions over at the Sideshow Forum that a lot of people drop their preorders all of the time before an item ever ships.

    Hot Toys will drop another Predator figure soon and 65% of the Indy preorders will be freed-up....
