Jeff & anyone else that got the Blue Stars, do you have the TOMY sticker on the back of the card? Mine came without one but not a big deal to me. I do have the holo sticker on the card tho. I have seen the odd auction pic's of them having the TOMY sticker. Maulsith mentioned he never got the TOMY sticker on his carded Droids Fett & I was just curious if anyone else got this.

Mine has a Takara Tomy sticker on it, right next to the holo sticker.

Okay, 3 people thus far with the TOMY sticker. Like I said, it's not a biggie. I'm chalking this up to a factory error/oops, forgot the TOMY sticker thing.  ;D

Just a heads up for those who preordered from Action HQ, I sent them an e-mail on the status of my order & if they are expecting the items to arrive soon & received this reply a short time ago.

Quote
Hello Dale
Thank you for your email.

We are expecting the stock to arrive in June.

There might be an increase in the retail prices of the Star Wars kubricks.

We will inform you and seek your permission if there is.

We do apologise in advance if this is the case, as these figures are exclusives, and their prices are often volatile (meaning what we were quoted from suppliers might change when the stocks are on hand) Although we do our best to make sure the prices are low on the onset when we list them.

Thank you
Best Regards


So now it might be in June. Might be an increase in price! I don't ******* think so.  ::)

Nice.   >:(

I think I'll be giving them some serious grief over a price increase.  Might have to ask them why, considering I know what retail is.  Ask them how honorable they are in business and if would do them well if I wrote to the local paper asking about stuff like that.  I don't really know how much saving face matters anymore but I'm gonna make them look bad if they start jacking me around.  I've got my blue stars, this was an opener for me, so if I lose it, I can survive it.

Boy, that's distressing...  I'll do my damnedest to get them to honor the original price, but I know it will end up as a losing battle.

I really was hoping that I could get these.  I guess I still can, just at a pretty unreasonable price :-\

My local connection came through.  Blue Stars and Darth Maul were waiting on me when I got home:



Crazy to think I got the blue stars carded version before I got the regular boxed set version of a snowtrooper.

Now what to do about opening the card???
