They sent me an email (after I sent one first of course) that mine was shipped on july 21st BUT then I got another email the next day saying it was sent on August 20th (the day they sent the second email). In the end I am royally pissed off with hasbro. This long of a wait without even getting the letter which states the delay is pure BS not to mention two emails which contradict eachother.

For those who still want/need one, the offer has been extended.

Really?  I sent in redemption forms for at least 3, but only received 2 so far.

Yeah, mine took four months to arrive, not exactly motivating to send in the four other forms I have, especially when I got a MOMC from a friend and I opened the only one I sent it.
Wonder if they'll extend the Indiana Jones offer?

Well I didn't need to mail nothing, cuz I found a clean variant of Rex, dough it doesn't come with the diorama wich I care less cuz I wan real 3d dioramas not carded.

Cool to have both Rexes. I think its rare? cuz I saw just one, I have not found more Rexes locally but I could be wrong.

Actually they started issuing clean versions of Cap. Rex and the Clone Trooper months ago before the cardback changed from the black to blue visor cards.

Also of note, these new Rex figures use a different shade of blue paint to accent the armor.



L to R: Mailaway (clean) | general release (dirty) | general release (clean) | general release (clean and new blue)

The old ones look almost black.  Is that because of the lighting?

I saw the latest version at Target yesterday.  The blue accent was bright and very noticeable.

Yeah, it's just the lighting.  The original ones were a dark navy blue, but still blue.  The newer ones are much brighter, similar in color to the 501st Clones that are out there (which is what he should have had from the start).

I was able to mail out for 2 of these before the March '09 extended deadline. I hope they would make another mail-away action figure offer for the upcoming season 2 of The Clone Wars.

I know we've got the Episode I Eopie & Qui Gon-Jinn mail-away but we need something for The Clone Wars season 2! Well, I know I'd enjoy it, just please don't mail it too late, Hasbro. ;)
