Did anyone manage to snag one? I need to check back, but was excited about it.
Curious what people thought if/after they acquired one.

Just ordered 4 from Arrow Electronics, who asserted they had 17 (now
13 :-) in stock.

Will let you know if and when they arrive.

:: Did anyone manage to snag one?

I purchased two, TI have just emailed me to say they shipped yesterday, so
the online store must now be in stock.

I just finished a 3x3x3 LED cube with my daughter (7 yo) using the LaunchPad, MSP430F2013, a shift register, 3x NPN, & 9v -> LM317.

Debugging without the uC in the Launchpad requires only TEST, RESET, and GND.  Programming was done in IAR which I like a lot.  Wrote functions for most LED patterns so she was then able to "program" different patterns by chaining the functions.

>From start to finish, this was a very quick project.  I'm considerably more experienced with uCs then when I started with PICs, but given that, I still think the LaunchPad provided a very accessible way to learn a new platform.  Can't wait for the 20 pin G series 430s.

For what it is worth, Microchip's datasheets are way, way better than TI's.  TI seems to rely on App Notes very heavily while Microchip just puts everything into the datasheet.  TI does seem to offer more sample code.  

She had to do all the soldering (on perf board) with longer than necessary 30 AWG Kynar.  Ended up being a very "modern art"-ish mass of red and blue loops inside a cathode/anode cage.
