Finally got to open my opener and I have to say that I'm underwhelmed. :P It was really disappointing that the Lucas head was just sculpted to fit in the Stormtrooper head joint. While I understand the decision from a cost and design standpoint, I think it came off as cheep.

Cheap too.  The whole figure doesn't make sense to me.  Here they are putting a Commtech figure on a VOTC card when they have the damn VOTC stormtrooper to use.   At the same time, they use the VOTC stormie mold on a SAGA2 card for the sandtrooper, but not the VOTC stormie mold on the VOTC card for the Lucas figure.

Where the hell is the sense in that?

Good additional point. I was just annoyed that cheap parts were used for what should have been a premium figure.

I got my second as an opener and after hearing the less than steller reviews(kinda expected) I think I'll just try to see if I can trade it for something I really want.  :-\

I got mine a few weeks ago. I haven't opened him yet, and from the looks of the reviews, I never will. He arrived in pretty damn good condition, not all smashed like Ive heard from other people. :)

I would bother opening him unless for display purposes. I'm kind of sorry I did. :P

I seem to recall that the offer ends in November.  Does anyone know of sure?

From what I see, Redemption Certificates must be postmarked by November 30, 2006 & received by December 8, 2006.

Interesting. I should have thought about this sooner. I have enough stickers to get at least two more, but, am not interested in the figure. Should have put them up to trade.

I finally stuck my certificates for the Lucas Trooper in the mail yesterday. I think it's funny people paid $50+ on ebay for these things. :)

Got the check written tonight, and it's all ready to mail. Going out tomorrow.

At some times I wonder why I didn't mail it back in June but then I read people's thoughts about the figure and then I know.
