I was going to get four, but am settling for two. However to date I have sent off 20 certificates and UPCs sets to other collectors. At $7 per figure X 4 X 20, that has saved a total of $560 for those collectors. And I was glad to help.
I'm just a humble collector trying to make his way through the universe...of toy aisles.

That's insane.  I also thought I had oprdered too many with just four.  I would have ordered dozens, but at $7 a pop they aren't any better deal than the regular retail price.  :-\

Just as a heads up, I received a postcard in the mail today saying that they received my redemption request for the Clone Wars 2008 Captain Rex collectible figure, but due to an unanticipated production delay they will be unable to ship the figure(s) until the last week of July, 2008.  They also offer information if you want to cancel due to the delay.

That's weird - didn't they request an email address on the form?  Why not just save thousands in shipping costs and email people?   ???

Got two notices today as well.  I'm a little surprised that I got two different notices, but ordered four figures - you'd think they would either send four notices or just one?  ???

Just a question for those of you who have gotten the delay notice: have your checks already been cashed?  Not to be nitpicky, but if they cashed the check and THEN sent out the delay notice, isn't that a little bit shady, or am I being a little too paranoid?

Also, isn't the very idea of a "sneak preview" figure supposed to be that you have it well before the actual main line hits?  If they're waiting until the last week of July to send this out, it's going to be hitting just as or immediately after the rest of the stuff hits, thus making the entire thing pretty pointless.   :-\

Yes the checks have already been cashed, at least mine.

My checks have all cashed.  From the sound of it, I think Hasbro planned to be sending them out sooner, but there was some sort of production delay.  If they're like most big corporations, finance and production don't interact much, so its likely that finance just went ahead with business as usual, thinking these would ship on time.

Just think of it like the '77 Early Bird kit promotion. You buy the figures/display first, then you get the figures in the mail months later.  :P

I wonder which will get here first. Rex or the Indy Crystal Skeleton?
