Damn, now this is one of those moments when it's not nice to live in a country like Finland. I'd really like to have the director himself as a figure, because at least in the photos, Lucastrooper looks quite spiffy.  ;D
The ironical part is that I _might_ be able to get all 5 VTSC figures from a speciality shop in here but I just noticed that it costs $4,95 to get one. Well...that's life, I suppose.

Funny thing happened,my wallet accidentally got washed with my certificate in it (for safe keeping),so it got ruined.Looks like Ebay for me! :'(

With POP's? Wouldn't it be better just to get a new Luke for the certificate if you have the POP's?

Unfortunately I'm going to have to post here the "Dressel Rebel Official Stamp of Condemnation" on this figure.

While the head sculpt of Lucas is nice, the figure has the Commtech stormie body, and Commtech stormie helmet, in sharp contrast to the early photos from RS that I posted in this thread.

Let's face it, the VOTC stormie helmet and body are superior in likeness and appearance.

Why then did Hasbro insist on using the CT versions?  It makes no sense to me whatsoever.

This figure could have been really cool, instead it turned out to be a bust because they just had to go use a 6 year old sculpt when they had a brand new slam dunk stormie sculpt in the VOTC form.

I don't get it.

Just look how ******* stupid the CT helmet looks compared to the VOTC helmet:


While every photo that I've seen has Lucas in the CT stormtrooper body, I have seen both the VOTC helmet and the CT helmet.  What gives?

From eBay (VOTC helmet):



From RS (CT helmet):




Obviously, the one with the VOTC helmet looks superior to the CT helmet  ??? ???

I still have not received mine yet, and I sent in my stickers in the second week of May.

Anyone else in the same boat....?

I haven't seen mine yet either, although the check was cashed quite some time ago (as everyone's was, it seemed).  Hopefully it will be showing up sometime soon, in the next couple weeks at least.

For those that have not sent them in yet dont be too concerned.  It seems that they are shipping these by region.

Full marks to Hasbro UK.

Mine arrived today just two weeks after posting off my coupons.

I can't seem to find anyone who doesn't need their Luke POP. Anybody want to trade something for the other 4?

Mine showed up yesterday, along with another local JD'er, so I guess shipping by region is correct. We were both lucky and they showed up in fine shape, despite using mailer boxes that look meant for something much smaller.

I received my figure yesterday and was very relieved it was in excellent shape when I opened it.  Now it's time to work on a second one. :)
