oK, i EMAILED aMAZON SINCE i ORDERED THIS AND THE GUNSHIP since I had ordered them, and they hadn't shipped. Amazon said the had computer trouble, and they upped me to two day shipping with no charge AND gave me a $5 promotional certificate. Pretty cool, huh?

See this is the problem with Amazon.  Everyone gets screwed from them and everyone gets a different adjustment.

Some people got upgraded shipping with  a $5 off coupon.  I got updated shipping with $10 off.  Others got free shipping.

Well, the date has changed again.  Surprise, surprise!  It is now showing again as a "Preorder".  New ship date May 15th.   :P

I had gotten an initial update a few weeks ago with a revised ship date of May 8-10. I haven't received any correspondence since.

I emailed them about it and changed my ship date to July 11th, and offered me a $20 promo certificate.

They just updated my arrival date to May 16th from July 11th.  They have no idea what they are doing over there.

I'm in the same boat as most of you guys. My order is scheduled to ship on the 15th of this month, and is said to arrive on the 17th. I still have no idea on how to use the $5 promotional gift or whatever the hell it's called. I really want to order me one of them fine-lookin' Utapau troopers.

When I was going to TRU at opening for the Gunship, there were two guys consistantly showing up waiting for this to hit.

What is the deal with these things? Are they ever really going to ship? I mean it shouldn't take this long after those pics were released of it packaged over seas right?

I don't get the front page update about this thing--it says that some people have been receiving it, is this true? I haven't seen any news of people getting these yet, so this confuses me...

When it first became "in stock" back at the start of May, there were a few (very few) that did in fact ship.

According to the info I have from Amazon, many Gunships were shipped, but for this battle pack the number was less than 50 that have been shipped so far...

I think the prices of both are $24.99, at least the TRU one is. Not sure of Target yet, I think it's the same.

Do we have confirmation of what TRU's in-store price is going to be on this Battle Pack? Amazon's prices on other TSC items have not meshed with TRU's in-store price, so I'm wondering if there will be a difference.
