Those are awesome, but based on the price of the Rogue one coats they made they will be in the ballpark of $500 USD (or maybe more since it is ESB and not Rogue One)

They are $400 USD each.  except the one signed by Harrison Ford that is $1980.  All the money from the sale of that Jacket goes to charity.

Well I stayed up and tried to see if it was possible to get one.  It was like buying concert tickets.  The problem is they allow people to buy 5 per home.   So basically people with very fast computers beat every body and then put them up for sale.  One guy on eBay put 2 up for sale both mediums and they sold right for $699 US.  Not sure why Columbia would allow 5 per house - does not make sense.   

Let us know if anyone got one.

Damn scalpers. Yeah, 5 is too many. Maybe they wanted that in case you actually have a family of 5 and want to get a $400 jacket for each person. The chances of that are slim and I think there is a better chance it just fuels the scalpers.

I sent a note off to Columbia suggesting that they make the limit 1 not 5.

Here is the response I got..... it has good information as to why they picked the number they did.

"We never like to hear that we have disappointed a customer. We appreciate the time you took to provide us with this feedback. These kinds of comments allow us to provide a better experience for you. I will be sure to pass your comments about the Star Wars collection launch along to my management team.

Demand for jackets far exceeded our expectations. To put things in perspective, last year we produced 500 Rogue One jackets in each style and inventory lasted for 24+hrs. Based on last year’s sales, we anticipated that our inventory of 1,980 jackets per style would carry us even further. Obviously, we underestimated the passion and excitement around this project. We recognize that the launch didn’t go as smoothly as we would have hoped. Please know that moving forward, we’re committed to doing better.

Without customers like you, we wouldn't be the company we are today.

Please let me know if you have any additional questions and I will be happy to assist you. Thanks again for choosing Columbia!"

Ebay seller are selling them from Europe and Japan.  Stores also had t-shirts with the jacket logos on them ie Never Tell me the Odds.   After looking at real pictures of the jacket - I am not as excited about them.   
$400 is a a lot of money and I think the people paying $1000 US now will have buyers regret once they get them.

Thanks for sharing the note. Indeed that 5/address with a limited edition was scalper-prone. I’d really like to see one with my own eyes.

Anyone knows if they have some in-store somewhere?

I am shocked by the demand. Adidas had a whole line of things for a couple of years and never had this problem.

I guess slapping an edition size on them made all the difference in the world.
