I sent for mine about 2 months ago, they cashed my check 2 weeks ago.

At any rate, the helmet looks like crap.  The mock ups with the VOTC helmet looked way better.

Yup, my check was cashed about 2 weeks ago and I figure it will arrive while I am on vacation next week. :-\

Then when you get back, you'll hopefully have a nice surprise waiting for you.   :)

Anybody get this thing yet? Mine came today. I figured I'd hear about from the L.A. posters a day before I got mine.

How were they shipped, Ook?  Is it in a box that will have me worried about the condition of the figure/card/clamshell, or is in a sturdy box that protects it fairly well?  And does it say "Not Steve Martin's Penis Beauty Cream" on the box? :)

In all seriousness, this is one of those figures that I have no desire to open and that I would prefer being in good condition on the card to begin with.

It's the same white box the modern Early Bird came in. There's probably pics up in the RS thread. Looks like several people there have gotten it.

White mailer:



That pic isn't mine, guys. It's from the above mentioned RS thread.

They haven't even cashed my check yet. If they're starting to show up hopefully it'll be cashed soon.

Well, I opened up one of mine. :o

The body is a standard Commtech Stormtrooper body that we have hundreds of. Nothing special here. It should have been the votc stormtrooper body for the price we paid for these things. But I digress. The helmet is a very soft rubbery plastic. It looks bigger to my eyes than the regular commtech helmet. The Lucas head itself is pretty well painted. He has lots of body and the neck post is the same as the commtech stormtrooper. It's not a ball post head. So this head isn't really compatible with other figures heads unless it's another commtech stormtrooper.

The package says the Saga Collection on it. The card is a nice vintage stormtrooper card. The case is the typical VTSC case but is taped shut not vacume sealed. The white mailer is simple and says George Lucas (in Stormtrooper Disguise) on the front. I wonder how many postal employees will manage to divert these from their home destinations to ebay.
