OMG, it's the Death Star! You may very well be the first to have noticed?! :D

Guess someone caught it earlier.

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 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!

Just got a second email confirming that I was refunded 10.85.  It should be seen in 3-5 days.

Congrats! You beat them before they retracted the offer! ;)

I was really looking forward to this set, and eagerly opened mine earlier tonight. Aside from the 25% rehash, it's a very nice product, and Papanoida is my favorite figure of the year.

Not to sound strange, but did any else one look up the skirt if the black robed daughter?  She's got some sort of silver space garter on. Odd.

Sadly, yes. It also look like she wearing silver/chrome diapers

I just got min ein the mail and since I'm a MOC collector I'm so glad to see the Death Star can posted on the front.  That is pretty neat to hide it in there lik ethat.

Alos, what does everyone think about the shape of the box.  I personally think it is a cool departure from the square shaped ones.

The box is cool but I'm starting to get buyer's remorse over this set.  $40+ is a lot for four "boring" characters.

Anyone else feel the same way?

Kind of. My saving grace is that I only bought one set (I usually buy two of everything.)

For whatever reason, I love it when they make the boring figures...  They're usually NEW figures that haven't been made before and probably are less likely to be made anyway.

Then again, the IMP Dignitary was my favorite as a little kid.
