This may not be the place to ask but does anyone have any of the Ark stickers to come off of? I'd love to have the ark but I'm not all that interested in the 12" figures themselves. Check my up for trade list for star wars trade items. I've got crystal skeleton stickers but I'm not sure how many of those I have to trade.
The most prized possession of my entire star wars collection is my Sega Trilogy Special Edition Pinball Machine.

Thanks for the reminder.  At the risk of having egg on my face, I didn't note whether you can send a single check to cover multiple items or if you have to send multiple payments in different envelopes?

Dunno.  I just sent off for three skeletons and two Indy/Horses a couple weeks ago, and I did five separate money orders and envelopes.  Didn't even think about combining them.

Thanks.  Probably safest to play it that way.  Not sure why I'm getting multiple skeletons, other than I have the stickers for them.  One for sure, two is ok but more than that isn't much point to me.

With the extension of the Capt. Rex offer, think we'll see an announcement on this with so many figures still widely available?

I hope so.  I just picked up a handful of $3 figures.

Since they already extended it once (original date was Oct 31st), it's not outside the realm of possibilty that they would extend it again if they are sitting on piles of left-over mail-away figures...

I'm hoping so.  I passed on it, well, more properly dawdled/dragged my butt and didn't mail in the forms.  I really would like one or two of the skeletons and would love to get the large Ark and the Indy/horse too.  But I haven't bought any of the Adventure heroes or large figures, so the latter two are unlikely.

I have an extra Indy/Horse on the way that you'd be welcome to if you weren't Canadian.

If you want Stickers Brent, let me know.  I've got a pile here for maybe 3 Skeletons?  If they offer them I could mail in for a few and mail you one if you want or whatever.  I'd probably take some more simply because I have the stickers for them, if they extend the offer.

If Brent passes I would be interested.

Anybody receive a postcard re: the Crystal Skeletons? Supposedly they won't ship until February because they had to order more. I did not receive a postcard though. Several people have posted on Rebelscum.

On Monday, I entered a question to Hasbro Consumer Affairs through their website re: the Crystal Skeleton offer.

I sent away for a total of twelve of them and had yet to receive a postcard letting me know that I might (or might not) actually get them at some point.

Anyway, after a couple of days, I got a response from Hasbro to my question which essentially said two things:
1) they confirmed that I had 12 skeletons on order
2) that they had sent me a post card notifying me of the delay

Ok - so the first part was welcome to hear - that my 12 certificates and payments had made it to the order processing center and that 12 skeletons would eventually be coming to me.

The second part was a bit confusing, since, like I said before, I never received a post card. Turns out that they probably meant that they sent me a postcard about the delay THAT DAY, 'cause guess what arrived in the mail today (Saturday) - a postcard!

For anyone who hasn't gotten one of these yet, here's what it says:

Quote
We have received your redemption request for the Indiana Jones Crystal Skeleton collectible figure. We received more requests for this figure than was originally forecast, so we had to place an additional manufacturing order. Due to this situation, we will be unable to ship the figure(s) to you until June 10, 2009. If you don't want to wait until then, you may cancel your order and receive a prompt refund by calling our toll-free customer service number, (800) 327-8264. Customer service hours are M-TH 8:30am-5:00pm; Fr 8:30am-12:30pm. If we do not hear from you by May 15th, 2009 we will assume that you have agreed to this shipment delay. Please DO NOT call the toll-free number unless you want to cancel your order. We thank you for your patience and apologize for the delay.


If this is redudant and everyone already knew this I apologize. I had not see anywhere the shipping date for the "additional manufacturing order" of these, so I thought posting the card's message might be some welcome news to anyone still waiting on these.

Considering that these things go for anywhere from $10 - $20 on eBay right now, for me to have sent away for 12 only to ask for a refund now would just be foolish since so far I'm only out $72 + the costs of the money orders I used. To get 12 on eBay right now would run me anywhere from $120 - $240 BEFORE shipping. No thanks, I'll wait two more months for my Crystal Skeletons.

Thank goodness the call-to-action statement on the postcard is only to CANCEL your order and not the reverse, asking you to call to confirm you still want the figures you ordered. Hopefully there are quite a few figures coming in this batch and scoring a 13th one to complete my Akator throne room will be cheap.

I wonder if they have that "new" factory that was making the Indy figures making anything else before they shut down Indy line operations? It's wishful thinking I know, but I wonder if they're cranking out those Wave 5 RotLA figures for an upcoming exclusive offering?  ;D
