You guys must not have complained as bad as I did  :D  I got my response on 05/31 and posted it on page 17.  I'm still not going to cancel my order, but this whole situation has left a bad taste in my mouth.

I know at least 6 ways you can fix that.

Somebody call the whaaaaaaambulance.  ******* crybabies. 

Yeah!  Let's just keep whining and bitching (because we never make mistakes ourselves) until we get through to them and they understand our pain!  I want my $10.34 baaaaaaaaaack.  Whaaaaaaaaa.   :'(

Again, I think most everyone here is with me on this as it is not the money issue, this is about PRINCIPLE! Yes we all make mistakes, but if you were raise right, you don't make others pay for your mistakes. Again PRINCIPLE! As I don't like dealing we people or companies that don't keep there word or can't own up to their mistakes. This is the problem with the world today and will be the down fall of society in time.

Do you or would you teach them it is okay to lie, cheat, and steal? Well if you do or would teach then not to keep their word you already started them off to the other stuff. I do not offer my money to any one that would lie, cheat, and steal. The government is bad enough that they force you too, but I do not have to take this crap from a company that does these things.

Well said Roran, what a subservient attitude towards not being able to change anything. Some people like to bend over and take whats given to them without complaint. Your are dead right, its not the $11 its the principle of it all. I cancelled my order so the groveling "give anything because its Star Wars" saps can pick the scraps off Hasbro's plate.

We all make mistakes. But personally when I make a mistake, I do my best to correct my error even if I am at a loss. They should have met us halfway as a sign of good character/faith.  Case closed for me, I cancelled and moved on but I will remember that. Not cool.

I got another e-mail this morning from Hasbro, not sure if anyone already posted it here (sorry if it is repeated):
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Dear Customer:

After your recent purchase of a Star Wars Ralph McQuarrie Signature
Series Concept Luke Skywalker Figure with Collector Coin, we informed you
that the Friends & Family offer was not intended for use on that item
as advertised in the promotional flyer created for that event.  The
discount was applied due to a technical error and we apologize for any
inconvenience this may have caused.  In an effort to make the purchase of
this item fair and equitable for customers who attended STAR WARS
Celebration IV and those who did not, we must apply the standard price and
shipping rates for your order.

In order to complete and ship your transaction, please call
1-800-408-0052 by June 9, 2007 to confirm that we may either apply the standard
price of the item and any applicable shipping charges to your credit card
or to cancel your order.  Instead of simply shipping your item(s), we
need to confirm your acceptance of the additional charges before
authorizing/charging your credit card.  After confirming the updated charges,
we will schedule your items to ship on June 11, 2007.  If you do not
call the number above we will be forced to cancel your order on June 9,
2007.

Thank you for your response to this request. We look forward to hearing
from you. Again, we regret any inconvenience this may have caused.

Good for Hasbro. A lot of people were posting that they were going to do chargeback on their credit cards after they get their order. They would have been unsuccessful in the long run, but this will save a whole lot of hassle on their end.

Yeah you shouldn't try a scam to get one over on Hasbro over it.  I didn't mind making the call, that should probably have been the way to do things in the first place instead of them sending a 2nd email.

There was a $10.34 difference on two figures shipped. 

Actually, after talking with Hasbro just now to confirm my order, my difference was $13.03 with the shipping...  jerk.  >:(

I just did the same thing.  By the time I was done with his ear, he was tripping and stuttering over his words.  I made sure to get my money's worth.

And my Lukes.

CIV Droids now available at StarWarsShop.com

Moral of the story: Convention exclusives, while available at the convention, are not exclusive anymore.

Expect more after Comic Con.

Man, I just wish someone would have guessed this would happen sooner.  It could have saved so much grief and frustration for lots of people.  If only someone would even have hinted at the possibility. :-X

HOLY ****! The droids are going for retail on SWS. I figured they'd be at least $35.

Speaking of the droids... has anyone gotten their order from ToyRocket yet?

While the droids may be easy to get, Luke is not.

In response to your question, I received my Droids from TR on Monday.

I got shipping confirmation from ToyRocket yesterday, so they should be on the way sometime in the next week or so.  I'm glad that these are available online so that (hopefully) everyone can get one, but as it was mentioned, I feel bad for the people who stood in line for hours to get these (especially for others).  It would be better if we could just know before hand, so we wouldn't have to make the begging lists like we do "just in case".

Except for when I can't get one from a convention, then it'll never show up again and become the next Toy Fair Vader. :P

Toy Fair Vader was available online after the event.  Yes, it was limited, but even little old me managed to score a couple.  I will admit that was more like a Gentle Giant online fiasco, but it was there.
