I think it's funny people paid $50+ on ebay for these things. :)

I think it's funny when people buy any modern SW stuff on e-bay. :)

If you're patient with eBay, you can steal some stuff at really cheap prices.  I've won loose lots of 5 or 10 clones or stormies for $8-10. 

You live in a good area for obtaining new stuff in brick and mortar stores.  So do I.  But I know a LOT of people who don't.

Looks like it's going to Spring before my Lucas Stormie is so rare and "exclusive" that I can sell it and give up work  ::)

Figures.  I spent an assload of time Wednesday and Thursday sorting through all my VTSC figures to figure out which to keep clamshelled, which to keep carded, which to open, and which to return/sell.  My notoriously procrastinating ass was quite proud of itself for actually getting my five entries in just in the nick of time.  But alas, it was all for not, at least not the anxiety that was involved in frantically dealing with that bogus (again) deadline that I thought I was up against.  Oh well.  I guess it got my lazy ass in gear finally, so hopefully my Lucas Troopers make it sooner rather than later now.

How many folks still have outstanding orders that haven't been filled on this figure?  At least it sounds like there won't be a shortage of the thing, which is what I was fearing most, so that's reassuring.

You're right. I keep forgetting about that. :-X

Holy crap.  I just checked my bank account online, and apparently all five of my Lucas Trooper checks were cashed a few days ago!  I guess that's a good sign...  Hopefully they'll be here early next week then.  Have they usually shipped shortly after your guys' checks have cleared, or is there not much correlation between the check(s) clearing and the package's arrival?

Either way, I'm feeling much better about things, after last week when I thought I'd wind up with none...

I sent four entries in a day before the deadline and the checks for those all got cashed on Wednesday this week.  Hopefully the turnaround time is short and they ship soon.

Well before the deadline was extended I think Hasbro said they'd all be mailed before December 30/31. So hopefully that remains true for all of us who barely made the deadline. I'm assuming that my check was cashed as well since I mailed it a day or two before the deadline.

Ok, i'm at my wit's end with this. I've emailed CS several times now with no response and the phone #'s are ALWAYS busy. Anyone have any idea what I can do to find out what's going on with my order???

Got mine today, it's pretty neat. I was surprised to find out that the head is ball jointed, I thought it was a regular neck joint.
