I'm late in also providing positive vibes for Deacon- Thanks for the quick payment, enjoy the Boba brick!

Medicom has never released a single figure by itself that wasn't carded. My guess would be it is a placeholder for something that wasn't ready yet, like maybe a 400% version. That would still be lame, but slightly less so.

How did you end up with an extra set of these?  I sense a drunken Ebay story coming our way...  ;)

I've been guilty of buying up lots, and keeping the army buillders. I decided not to army build the vinty TIE pilot, but I was tempted. Plus you only need so many skiff Lando's in the display....

Thanks for the purchase Deacon, hope you enjoy red Fett!

extras- I'm afraid my Kubrickitis is terminal, but fortunately not fatal.  :)

ho, meet hum. I suppose it is better than a super desirable character that would become prohibitively expensive. It seems we should be getting an update by the end of June if a December release is planned.

Ryan, if you are looking for the person who jinxed you on the postcard, here he is...

I haven't heard of anyone not getting a Fett, or getting one of the dreaded "unavailble" post cards that have been part of some mail-aways.

I'm afraid he's right! I expect I'll be getting post cards instead of Fetts today  :P

But I am very glad Hasbro is going to deliver- I remember this happening with my Sgt Bric as well. They may be making some odd decisions with the lines, but at least they stand behind the mail away.

Edit: post card arrived!Great condition too...

Dewback kibbles and bits...

I don't think the grunts were going to know much- it's not their job, and would be a liability. Vader, Tarkin, and the Emperor don't seem like a trio likely to bother with running prisons, especially when the people in it are officially "dead" in the senate records.

The MTT is looking like a tougher sell as the year goes along. This may end up at TRU and on-line, with big box saying no-thanks. That's just a wild guess, not based on any information anyplace-

The other problem is the combination of high price, low cool factor, and weak movie released at a down time for retail sales may make future BMF vehicles for the 3D releases less likely. I think the re-paint of the sweet slave-1 is a given at some point, but sure would have liked to have seen a stab at a decent size sail barge.

The lack of OT ships of any sort on the shelves for such a long spell is still surprising me.

I watched A New Hope, and worked on the kubrick display ;D

Excessive is definately a tough word to toss around on a website with dozens of individuals with thousands of figures!
If Hasbro wanted to put a limit on them, they sure could have as they have in the past (5 per household or whatever).
At least with the mail away, it's not leaving anyone in the cold like army building at retail. I don't blame anyone that does it, because we all have our desires for what our collection looks like. I was a big army builder for a long time, but that takes figures off the shelves for others (and is nearly impossible in an age of 1 figure per case, sometimes in only one assortment).

I haven't heard of anyone not getting a Fett, or getting one of the dreaded "unavailble" post cards that have been part of some mail-aways.

With the mail away, all anyone had to do was send in the $7 and some cardboard. I wish they would make more army builders available that way- Rebel fleet trooper, gamorrean, imperial commander, good stormtroopers,  etc.

Found some of these at a Minnesota Target this morning. Picked up my Hoth Luke, but didn't see the Navy commander.

I found this wave at Wal Mart (Minnesota), and didn't even know there were variations until I went to post the find. I found a non-painted scar evazan, and both Kithabas have the brown sweatband.

no wonder Evazan only has one good eye. He's packaged with the gun facing himself, secured with a rubber band.  ::)

My last run was 7. We addressed them to my daugters, and the pets. That way the mailer box is collectible too (at least from our perspective).  ;)
