Mine arrived yesterday. They're kind of cool, but are taking a little bit to get used to.

I received mine yesterday, too. One thing I did notice was that the background of the card is just not very good--mostly because the colors are of a similar value to the actual figure. As a result, the figure doesn't stand out. They needed a lighter (or more contrasting) background (like the Hoth Vaders).

It was funny, though, because I opened one of mine and when I saw the silver stand, I thought I'd opened the UGH version.  :P

how long from the shipping notice day until you folks receive it? I'm in the second wave (Aug 4) shipment.

Ok I got a shipping notice today.  But what is better than that?  ROB hooked me up with 2 today at lunch....So my intstatnt gratification syndrome is satisfied.

I should get mine on Saturday (or so the tracking info says on the FedEx page)

That will give me my "team" of 6.

Whoever packed my figs must of been high on PCP.  One fig was not too bad and was folded over on the top of the figure case.  The second figure was folded on the cardback and figure case.  They shipped mine in this really small box that the figs had to be stuffed in.

With us being in So Cal, I get mine within hours of getting my e-mail notice. I would say once you get your notice, the longest you'll have to wait is a day if that.

I got mine Saturday.  Not too bad.... I like them.  I agree with the others that think the packaging was an after thought, or could have been better, of course I only noticed that part as I was ripping them all out of their packaging..

I got my 6 man "Team" so I am stopping right there.  No seriously, I mean it.

I'm concerned :-\

My order review AT SWS says ships Aug 4. However I never got a shipping notice and didn't get the product Saturday either :(

I'm in the same boat. They hit my card on Friday but I'm still showing the same thing you are seeing on SWS.com. I'm giving it another day before I email them about it.
The most prized possession of my entire star wars collection is my Sega Trilogy Special Edition Pinball Machine.

Mine got here on Saturday. Cool figure, but like Anton said, it's taking time to get used to having a black Stormtrooper. I'd like a second, but it's too expensive.

I have a shipped status at the website...but I sure as hell don't have it 

I have a not-very-funny feeling about this and I'm really hoping I'm not right about it.   :(

Did your shipped status show a tracking number on the right hand side?  Mine had a clickable link that let me track the package on the FedEx site...

yes but....that link wasn't working for whatever reason. I should be good if a fed ex number was there right?

EDIT: I got home and had my x3 SS troopers waiting for me in great condition(no shipping damage). Phew I can finally stop crying about it now..... :'( ;D
