Me three... but the price is now back UP to $34.99.  ::)

Congrats to those who got the $5 credit or were able to snatch it up for the $29.99 "sale" price.

Have any of you guys who got the $5 refund actually seen it on your card yet.  The email I got was talking about who my order was being ready for shipping and as soon as my card get charged they will give me the $5 (hopefully $10) refund but I already got my package the day I sent the email off so my card was already charged.  Hopefully I will notice the  refund soon.

I got an e-mail today saying my set has shipped, and they would be giving me a $5 credit as well.  And now the price is back up to $34.99 - silliness.

Guess I should have ordered it when it was cheaper.  Now I won't order it again for the higher price ::), at least not without complaining.  I'll wait for the next sale ;)

I ordered 2 of them and got my $10 credit just in time before they pulled it. I got the heads up on yakface and inquired immediatly.
They saw how much money they had to give back and put the kie-bosh on it when they saw too many fans found out.
Refunds usally take 3-5 days to appear, so save their email just in case.

C'mon Lucas give everyone who ordered one their $5 back! They are going to give back to you eventually anyway.
Make them feel like you care about your fans for 1 minute!

I got my set in the mail today...

Just got done opening it and it's pretty good.  $30 plus shipping is a bit much, but it's exclusive and all that jazz so I guess I understand.

Anyone else notice anything particular about the top of the Baron's cane?   :D

The cane is cool, and it's the kind of thing that lets you know there are some fans working, at least in the sculpt area, on these figures...  :)  That's neat.

The price didn't bother me as much because of these being new figures...  I can certainly choke down $30+ on 3 new figures and a repack, all kind of obscure and uninteresting ones too but ones collectors like having, as opposed to $15 repainted Clones or Grievous with snap-on crap.

Those are the exclusives you feel jipped on.  I even like the item, just hate the pricing there.

My  sets  were  waiting  for  me  when  I  got  home  yesterday.  The  figures  are  well  done  and  the  packaging  is  pretty  unique.

I may have mentioned it, but one thing I did notice about the cane is they actually used an appropriately sturdy plastic for it instead of the gummy garbage they've favored for some time. Guess I didn't pay as much attention when I got Sun Fac, but someone mentioned his staff is also rigid. Hope this is a reversal of the cheap-out trend they started with the floppy weapons.
