I got one too but mine's the 1st... They must like me more than you!

Spoke to my local Rymans (Canary Wharf); they haven't heard a thing about the new range at all.

Cancelled my set on Monday. Getting a full set of pencil cases requires buying a trade bin at £250. I can better use that money towards vintage helix items I still need.

I thought you could buy all the pencil cases singly, why do you need to buy a trade bin to get them all? Is there an exclusive only with the trade bin maybe?

Yes leia. Only 250 made.

But Mark Daniels has suggested that they are available through other means too

Yep, this will not be the only place you can get the Leia's BUT you will not be able to purchase them direct. They are being used as giveaways and promos. There are 250 of these Leia cases so they will be hot property.

That makes sense to me now what Jason wrote, there's always an exclusive with Star Wars, when will I ever learn :lol:
