Yup. Thankfully patience is a Jedi virtue. I was all ready to make a move on the auctions too but missed out on the 1st one because I didn't have the funds available that moment. Then didn't know about the "new reply" feature on the forum and missed out on the 2nd auction and couldn't compete with $3K yesterday. But alas it wasn't meant to be and that just means my quest continues and I'll be on the forums everyday searching ... even if it takes ten years ;D
With such a successful run, I'd like to think there will be another run of these Obi sabers from OM, perhaps this time an AOTC edition. So for those of you who couldn't get in on this run, indeed patience you must have! I think I felt the same as some of you guys about the VV Starkiller first run. I never thought I'd ever be able to own one, especially with auctioned pieces fetching huge bids. I salivated over everyone's review vids when VV started shipping, watching over and over with intense jealously ;D But low and behold there's a 2nd run, I'm in on it, and it's looking to sport some interesting improvements over the first run. Patience was a virtue there.
Another example is Madcow's Corran Horn Run #2. The first run was so successful, it simply made sense to do another, and Madcow delivered, with even more being offered this second time, CF possibilities, and dare I say lit crystal chassis? :o
So I conclude with saying don't give up hope on there being a 2nd run of these Obi-Wan sabers from OM!
