I'm just hoping I can secure one the week of June 18.

$14.99 is fine by me.

I called around 8 am MTN and couldn't get through.  The line rang and then went to a fast busy signal.

I just tried again, got right through to someone there.  My order is okay and ready to ship.

I never got a cancellation email, but the lady I spoke with on Friday was a real witch and basically treated me like a piece of trash.  It was the end of the day so I didn't feel like fighting with her over a couple of toys, but it looks like I'll now need to call back again to see WTF is going on.

This might as well have been a WM exclusive with all these hoops I'm having to jump through   >:(

**My card got hit last night with a $37.08 charge (I really liked the original $24 charge better for some reason)...So no cancellation email and a debit...looking good so far.

I called on Saturday to confirm my order, and I haven't seen a cancellation email yet. I'll have to check my account to see if I've been charged yet or not.

My McDroids arrived from Toy Rocket today. They are awesome! I am keeping them carded, but the two separate cardbacks will REALLY bug me.

Same here.  I'm just glad that they are finally shipping, and hopefully no one has any problems.  Now we'll just see what's in the box when it gets here :P.

It's just going to be a voucher for a McQuarrie Luke incase they're ever in stock at HTS again, and a Friends and Family Discount Coupon.  The package isn't going to be a box, it's going to be an envelope.

Got my Lukes today.  One thing that I noticed is that they don't have the double insert card in the clamshell.  I wonder if this figure was made as a celebration exclusive late in the game.

Coool, cool figure.  Oh, and I really gotta say that I pissed off that the convention exclusives are easier to get than the regular figures.  I have yet to see a Concept Fett or Chewie.

Got my Luke today. I am glad that is out of the way. the problem that this luke should have been in the basic line with Vader instead of the Starkiller Hero fig (which should have been the Exclusive) now we await McObi and McYoda.

Got my Lukes and the droids over the weekend/today and they're all really nice I think...  The 3PO could've used knee joints but really all 3 figures are pretty spiffy in general.

Wish I could have another set of droids for customizing pieces (I'd love a variety of that 3PO for background droids), but the price probably will prohibit me from doing that.  :-\  I'm still debating it.  The Luke is really a nice figure though in general.  Very well done...  Can be posed neutrally or in the classic art style, which is nice.  It looks like the legs were sculpted just so you could have him standing around, or in the wide stance.  That's cool to me.

I love the McQuarrie line in general and would love to have a set of these carded too actually.  I'm still on the fence on that one for cost reasons as well though.  At $15 a pop on the Luke and $20 on the droids, that mounts up darn fast buying 2 or 3 of each figure.
