I like that jedi master point idea.  I might send out a few hundred of those along with the order form and a check to see whay kind of reply I get.
You are never alone when there's a clone.

I have the funny feeling that by the end of the year these Lucas figures will show up on HasbroToyShop.com. I wonder how many they made??? They just seem sooo desperate to get rid of them...

Well I'm going to order 3 more then with my extra stickers from the Tusken Raiders and Biker Scouts.  One is going to Brent, if anyone else outside of the country is looking to get one and doesn't have the means or the stickers, let me know.

Straight from Hasbro:

"As previously announced, we are accepting the five stickers from ANY mix of the five eligible figures. We are also providing you with an online redemption certificate that can be downloaded here. The online certificate will also be honored in place of the official redemption certificate."


So, there you go.   :)



Translation:

Please send us five bucks because we are stuck with a lot of this crap.  Send us anything.  Send us stickers.  Matching stickers.  Different stickers.  The order form.  No order form.  We really don't give a **** at this point.  Just send us five bucks.  It doesn't even have to be money.  Just something worth five bucks will do.

LOL!  Maybe they should open it up to all basic figures to.

I might just send a check for $4.95 and see what happens.

It's too bad really. If they had opened the offer up like this some time ago, the stores may not have had to clear them out like they did. I missed the clearance prices myself, but if I spy some tuskens or even han/luke cheap I will grab them and send in for another (assuming the figures have the stickers left of course).

I just ordered 2 more. I was thinking about taking one and customizing, putting the head on a VOTC body. Anyone else thought about this?

...or, the tin sets are coming with the Sandtrooper...

Wow, I just sent in my order form last week and they've already cashed the check. Not even a week! They must really need the $$$...

Like was mentioned earlier, I think something will 'come-up' by the end of the year where Hasbro is trying to get rid of the rest of them still. Maybe they'll contract them out to a major Etailer or something? Seeing how many VTSC on the shelves in my area stores they must proportionately have several left that no-one's claiming..( and the VTSC I see is clearanced too!)

It's likely you'll have another crack at it.

mine was probably 5-6 weeks after the check cashed- so you are a little over that, but not too much
