Anyone know how we can ask Hasbro if you still need the actual form from Luke?  Otherwise, you might just be able to photocopy it??

I just e-mailed Hasbro to inquire about the order form that comes with Luke and whether or not it's still needed.  If I get a response back from them I'll make sure to post it.

So it's admittedly difficult to find the Biker Scout, but we're not going to do anything about case ratios...we're just gonna tweak the mail-away system. Meh. ::)

Cool stuff I Am Sith, I was wondering this myself...

I have lots of Scout tabs and a couple of other figure tabs as well, so I'd like to mail them all in for as many Georgetroopers as possible, sure, but their information was definately vague.  I hope you don't need the Luke (I'm assuming not, but you never know) as he was just about as difficult a find as the Scout was really. 

I personally didn't think the Scout was hard enough to find for a response like this from them...  I'm kind of surprised.  I just bought one the other night that's been chilling for a month now at WM.

Received my mail-away GL In Stormie Disguise today. Cool figure, but I'll keep the helmet on and add him to the ranks of my Imperial forces.

Scouts have been harder to find in some places than others. Around here, I saw a fair share of them, but not that much. They're all dried up now as well. However, I was in Houston 2 weeks ago and saw TONS of Bikers hanging around. I guess it all depends on where (and maybe when) you look.

I don't see these anymore in my area...well the 5-6 stores I frequent at least.  I still don't know why I have not sent mine in?  Maybe I will get going on that today.  I will feel like a dimwit if I don't sent it in before the promo ends.  Whenver that is.

If anyone has three spare tabs (of anything now, obviously) and would like to waste an international stamp, I'd like to be your friend. :-* ;)

I've got extra stickers from Biker Scouts and Tusken Raiders and I'd be happy to help you out Brent - but I don't have any entry forms because I didn't buy extra Lukes... are they letting us print these out from anywhere???

Can we send in photocopied entry forms?

Even with the new and improved "relaxed" sticker criteria, I still don't want to spend the $5 for the piece of ****.  It looks terrible mixed in with VOTC stormies.

I think the CT Stormie sculpt still holds up even against the likes of the VOTC Stormie sculpt. It's fairly accurate, and has decent articulation.

It's not the worst thing I've ever seen, but with the advent of the VOTC stormie, the CT stormie is junk.  The CT stormie is an army builder that can't even hold a rifle with 2 hands for God's sake.  What good is that?  I'm going to point my rifle at you!  I can't aim it and fire it, but I'm gonna point it at you!  In addition to that, the helmet sculpt is way inferior.

That begs the question, WHY did Hasbro resurrect that ancient sculpt when they had the VOTC sculpt?  Makes no sense.

Ah hem... anyone know anything about obtaining extra order forms?

Anyone willing to scan one and post it so we can print a few out?

Rob I sent an email as well to Hasbro about obtaining a order form due to the fact I purchased the Luke knowing it was missing. So we'll see what happens.
