My second one came yesterday.

Is the offer still valid? I think I have 4 more stickers thanks to a couple of bikerscouts I found while Christmas shopping  ;)

Got mine today, it's pretty neat. I was surprised to find out that the head is ball jointed, I thought it was a regular neck joint.

I wouldnt call it a ball joint, but it is different from the standard neck joint.

I do believe the offer is still valid BD SW fan.

Received my second Georgetrooper this afternoon.  This time around it came nice and minty, so now I can open the other one that came banged up.  Strange that some people are still waiting on theirs.  I sent my check on 11-27 and Hasbro cashed it on 12-1.

For those who sent for multiples, did you send separate checks for each one, or just one check for them all?  Still have a few stickers left to send for a couple more George's.

Holy crap, is that Ricardo?!?  :o  Good to see your MIA ass floating around the boards again!

...I just checked my bank account online, and apparently all five of my Lucas Trooper checks were cashed a few days ago!  I guess that's a good sign...  Hopefully they'll be here early next week then.  Have they usually shipped shortly after your guys' checks have cleared, or is there not much correlation between the check(s) clearing and the package's arrival?

All five of my Lucas Troopers finally arrived yesterday (in 5 seperate boxes).  I sent in 5 different checks in 5 different envelopes, btw.  I wouldn't dare try to combine them all into one with Hasbro's oft stupidity.

I was rather horrified when I saw the mailer boxes up close, as four of the five were smashed pretty good.  But to my utter amazement, the contents inside made it through relatively safely (aside from some scuffing on most of the bubbles).  I'm just glad to finally get those suckers out of the way, after thinking that I may have missed the boat on them by waiting 'til the very last minute...

Stiiiiiiiiiillllll waaaaaaiiiiitiiiiiiiinnnng....

From August... ::)



EDIT:

I just called the CS dept and I got a really nice woman on the phone. She said she'd see what they could do and call me back. My phone rang 10 minutes later to tell me that they'd be shipping me out a replacement and i'd get it in about a week. NICE! If this comes through, major kudos to Hasbro...

It's nice to see Hasbro working on satisfying their customers.

I actually have had good dealings with Hasbro Customer Service in the past...  Got some figures from them once.  They don't always have it on-hand which you just have to accept at times, but if you act quick enough they can usually hook you up with what you need/broke/lost.

oh yeah, hasbro CS is very good, ive gotten everything from coupons to figs for complaining to them.  ;D

and...

MY LUCAS FIGURE CAME YESTERDAY! YAY! YAY! YAY! YAY! YAYERS!  ;D  ;D  ;D

my comments:
*I will not open because it is the commtech sculpt and being the fig it is itll be super rare in a few years.
*It did have a big dent on the bottom, but isnt very visible, and im overdue for a votc han solo in my collection soon, so ill just rip him open and put his clamshell on my lucas fig.
*It actualy LOOKS LIKE HIM! Very kool!  ;D

im pretty happy with it.

Open it. This figure is not going to be "super rare". They made an abundance of it.
I remember my dream now.
