Ordering Free-for-all?

I'm a little curious about how the ordering process is going to work, come the 
first week of July (fingers crossed) when the Freerunner GTA02 hits the 
distro centers in the US and Europe.
  Is this going to be like buying Hannah Montanna tickets, where the entire 
supply evaporates within the first two minutes of the site coming on-line?  
Is there any kind of pre-ordering list that people who have been lurking 
around the mailing list since last June can get on, to avoid the throngs that 
will suddenly be interested as soon as Slashdot announces the Freerunner is 
available for mass-purchase?  Just how many of the little beasties are 
actually going to be available in the fist shipment from China?
  I'm all for free-markets, but I've also deferred presents for two fathers 
days, a birthday, and Christmas  waiting for the GTA02, and I'd hate to get 
trampled in the mad rush on "opening day" and wind up having to wait for 
shipment two, or three from China.
