I think I Am Sith mentioned emailing Hasbro about it today Rob but didn't mention a reply yet...

Hopefully they just let you mail them in on a piece of paper...  That'd be dandy.

As far as the CT figure goes the sculpt is decent and holds up even in today's age.  I'm ok with that...  They're good for filler that way.  Their articulation is not swift though.  Wrists are all the figure needs to be passable so I'm working on something for all mine...  The rest though is just tough noogies I guess.  He harkens back to a time Hasbro was sorta trying, but still doing little goofy **** like bent ankles and things to mess the figure up...  NOt that this time in question has passed completely *cough*Cmdr. Cody*cough* but at the time it was more common.

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?

I can probably spring for another Luke if need be to get the form.  I can always put him in one of the X-wings.  But I'll wait on word for the order form criteria/requirements for now.  Thanks for the help. :)

Figures Hasbro would relax the rules, especially after I picked up additional Han's and Greedo's just so I could order another two Lucastroopers. Good thing they were on clearance.

Monday morning and still nothing back from Hasbro.  I'll make sure I post right away if I hear anything.

BTW, did any of you hear that WM has started their clearance for the VTSC figures?  I read $3 in some areas.

I haven't heard anything back from them either. My local WM had VTSC figures for 4.25

I received a response from Hasbro. Instead of sending me a replacement sticker and order form they want me to send the packaging and the figure back to them and they'll ship me out a replacement. Supposedly they are shipping out a prepaid box of some sort to send the figure in.

I wonder if it would of been cheaper for them jst to send the sticker and piece of paper than go through all that.  ???

I hope that goes well.

A few years back Hasbro told me to send an ATT in for a replacement b/c the box came with two right hand sides of the tank; basically the part of the tank that fire rockets and has wheels which is connected once opened.  I could not assemble it so they send me a replacement.

The replacement was Jabba w/Han beast pack and monkey leia.  I have always wondered if there are dozens of tank like this out there but nobody knows b/c they kept them in the box. :-\

Straight from Hasbro:

So, there you go.   :)

Thanks Jeff for creating that link.  Hasbro responded to my e-mail about 5 minutes ago, but attached a .pdf version of that document and I had no idea how to get it into this response.  You definitely saved me the trouble!

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.

If you can gather up five bucks worth, yes.  The official announcement is undoubtedly coming.
