unless people want to wait for the .45 QuiGons to show up on ebay (which I am sure they will), this will be the only way for some of us to get it from the beginning to complete our mini collections.
I'm sure next year, MR will have found a bunch to sell to CS members again. Then the ebay market will get some more. Look at all the full-mini Mauls out there.
They still need to make an Obi-Wan EP 1 mini....
oh, i did get the new membership, so I will have my .45 QuiGon when they ship :)
