I found cheep Hans and Greedos, so I'll be able to mail away for a second one. I'm still on the fence about it though.

You should get it to trade. If not, I'll give you something for a Luke POP.

I wonder if mine got lost in the mail.  They cashed my check over a month ago and I still haven't received anything.

Are there others still waiting?

I'm in the same boat here.  My check was cashed over a month ago as well, and still no signs of Georgetrooper.  Hopefully its still on the way, and maybe they just haven't made to this area yet.

I always used to pick up extra exclusives to trade, but for some reason, I've just never had any luck getting rid of them. :P

I finally received my George Lucas Stormtrooper in the mail today, so they are still making their way out to everyone.  Unfortunately, it was kind of bashed up (clamshell smashed, figure bubble smashed, top of card bent a little).  Still happy to have it though.

My check was cashed a little over a month and I just recieved my today, so they should be arriving soon.  I was kinda disappointed in my.  Like others have stated, mine had the clamshell smashed, bubble smashed and the card was bent.

Due to the difficulty of finding vintage Scout Troopers, among others, at retail, we are relaxing the criteria that consumers send in one of each of the five vintage figures to complete the offer for the George Lucas in Stormtrooper disguise mail-in figure.  Effective immediately, consumers may send in five stickers from ANY mix of the five eligible figures.  Certificates completed as such will be honored. Thanks for spreading the word to the Star Wars collecting community!

Good news for those who have piles and piles of extra tabs... of course, you still need the proper form from X-Wing Luke though.   ::)

I was just wondering the other day if anyone had tried beating the "five different tabs" system, and if so, if they were successful.  Guess that's kind of a moot point now.  Which is a good thing.

So is it due to the "difficulty of finding Biker Scouts," or is it really due to a surplus of Georgetroopers because of their silly redemption requirements?

(And couldn't the Luke X-Wing order form thing be photocopied?  I mean, as long as they've got the check and the five tabs, then who cares if the order form is genuine or not?)

Nice! I still have 3 Hans and a Greedo sitting around. Now I just need another Luke w/order form...
