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  ??? ???

Hmmmm... that's odd. I wonder if the one with the CTC helmet is just a prototype image? It seems weird that they would retool both bersions to be removeable.

I wonder why it is in VOTC packaging?

Now that I think it's the CT sculpt and CT helmet, I think you can put the emphasis on "bad".

It appears they reduced his 70's white man afro. The production sample looks good. I hope I recieve miine. I mailed away 3 weeks ago.
I never got my Early birds and FYI I had them shipped to 2 different addresses in 2 different states.

Makes me nervous.........

Has anyone sent off for theirs yet?  I have all the stickers and form, but just haven't sent it out yet.  I guess with all the horror stories that came from the Early Bird set, I was a little nervous to send it in too early and have it get lost ;).

I sent mine in about a month ago.  I check every couple of days to see if my checked has cleared.  Still nothing ::)

Nothing here either on about the same timeline as you, Jim, and the check hasn't cleared. I sent another in this week to my new address.

Jack, I actually had luck with the Hasbro Customer Service folks in redirecting the EB figures to a new address. You should give them a shot and see if they can fix things for you. Not like they don't have a ton of those things they're sitting on.  ;)

Jared, Hasbro customer service was great but after they sent the replacement that did not make it I did not want to think I was a liar by telling them. A guy at work sold me one cheap and I bought an extra Chewie at a flee market for $7. So I am covered, chewie was the only reason i wanted it.
Thanks for the encouragement to try again and you are right that they have a lot they are sitting on. Brians toys will probally buy them up and charge 3 times the price

I just sent in my second GL Stromtrooper today via Priortiy mail with delivery confirmation. I better get both or the mail man is personally meeting an angry buff 6'5 star wars nerd. I am watching the confirmation tarcking and my bank account.

I guess at SW Weekends in Orlando if you purchase the set of 5 VTSC figures you'll be able to get your GL figure as well. No having to send in the POPs. Not sure if this is entirely true.

If it is true then it's bull**** making everyone else send in those little stickers when someone can walk into the Star Tours store and purchase it outright.
I remember my dream now.

GL available at Disney. Don't you love "exclusives"?

Bah, I was only beaten by 13 seconds. :D

I would not be too upset, knowing how they inflate prices they will probally charge $15 a figure so you will wind up paying more. 
Actually, I am wrong be upset, the best advantage they have is they can mail away for another one with the tabs they have in the figures.....F@ckers!
