Were these sent in the mail or shipped by FedEx?

US mail from Bozeman MT.

I don't know why I thought they were coming from L.A. Maybe StarWarsShop ships from L.A. and I was thinking of the Lucas Family set...

Correction...My shipping checks were cashed! They cashed one about a month ago and the other weeks later. I also received a notice in the mail that I have a package in the management office of my apartment complex. Mine very well could have arrived today as well.

Came home to find the conspicuously marked "GEORGE LUCAS (IN STORMTROOPER DISGUISE)" box sitting in front of my apartment.  I'm amazed that the figure, card, and clamshell were in perfect condition with not a nick on them.  In fact, even the white mailer box was in perfect condition.  Weird.

I have to admit, though, that I see a rash of GLISTD figures showing up on Ebay in the near future with address labels mysteriously missing from the mailer boxes.  I know I made the "Not Steve Martin's Penis Beauty Cream" joke before I saw that they actually identified what was on the box, but it's basically just telling dishonest people that "there's Ebay money in this here box!"  ::)

I got mine and my craptacular Cell Phone snapped a photo of it to share.  Yay!

I got one at Star Wars weekends and I am waiting for 6 more.  I'm sure somebody will want them.  But I am really un-impressed with the sculpt.  I've got a few already spoken for for "Carded" buddies that didn't want to open theirs, the others are for overseas guys who think they actually need this thing....

When I receive mine I think I'll keep the helmet on and use it as a regular Stormtrooper.

Recieved my Georgetrooper this afternoon.  The clamshell arrived in ok shape, considering the shipping box was thrashed.  No room for error on this one, for us MOC collectors. :-\

My  Lucastrooper,  as  well  as  my  Sideshow  Kit  Fisto,  were  waiting  for  me  when  I  got  home  yesterday.  The  white  mailer  box  was  a  little  beaten  but  the  clamshell  and  figure  were  in  excellent  condition.

My mailer box was beaten too yesterday. I was really nervous opening that but the clamshell was AOK! ;D

Got my 2 Beardo troopers with pristine shipping boxes and outer clamshells.
The shipping force was with them!

Really nice sculpt on the head, I was impressed and quit pleased with him!
Well worth the wait.

Mine arrived in great shape. After getting a good hard look at it, I might send away for one more to open.
