They probably had some credit card declines, so they just moved on down the line.

Well, GG has dropped the ball again.  I like the raffles because when the sales went up I never had a chance because I was working or had a slow connection speed.  The talk over at GGC.com is that some people were sent a "you lost" e-mail and then this morning received a "you won" email and their orders are "processing".  One guy went to enter the raffle and it let him just purchase the set and his order is still listing as "processing".  I know they are trying but wouldn't you think a simple raffle shouldn't be that hard to pull off.  I think they would be better to put a name in a hat, draw it out, and then send an e-mail.  To those of you who lost, check your e-mail again, maybe you won.  I still haven't received anything else so I'm sure I lost.

I posted this over in the RS Gentle Giant forum, and thought it was worth re-posting here:


My post isn't so much about the Republic Commandos specifically, as it is about a symptom of a collector's long term relationship with Gentle Giant. I've been collecting the mini-bust line since about 2004. I have almost every piece in the line and I like the busts. I live in the NYC area but have gone on the road to get Convention exclusive busts in cities like Chicago, LA, San Diego, Indianapolis and Baltimore. However, there have been a couple of serious issues that deterred me from trying to get any of the Republic Commando mini-busts.

First? The Premiere Guild Membership. I joined the Premier Guild when it started. But when renewal time came a few months ago I didn't have a hard time letting my membership lapse. More and more I did not feel comfortable with shelling out $50 annually without the knowledge of what that $50 was going to get me. It comes across like my $50 gives me THE OPPORTUNITY to spend more money on other offerings down the line.

And then, there's the ordering process. Many of us have been through this numerous times, and it's still an issue. It becomes an online feeding frenzy where a number of things happen. The servers time out or are incapable of handling all of the traffic. People aren't sure whether or not their orders have gone through. And it's all very frustrating. Moreso because we are going through this process TO BUY A PRODUCT.

If this was an isolated incident, I would regard comments like mine and others as an anomoly. But this has happened numerous times. The Blackhole Stormtrooper. The Clone Commander mini-busts. The Mara Jade bust. Those instances got me angry. But I could only be angry for so long. Now, I just don't care about the Republic Commando mini-busts. And I find my own growing apathy about the mini-bust line and exclusives to be very revealing.
