I'd heard of others getting the post card before but I hadn't seen one till yesterday.  I got the card also.  I'm waiting on 6 or 7, I think.  I'm definitely letting my order stand because while I don't think I'll ever end up with 13, having at least six would still make a decent half display for the figures at some point.

I got a postcard over the weekend too.  I just think its interesting that Hasbro had a lackluster response to this offer initially (i submitted my request by the first due date) so they extended the offer, only to run out of figures. :P  I figured that would have at least processed the initial receipts before extending the offer, but apparently that's not how Hasbro rolls.  Still, waiting another month or five is fine with me.

So if they're getting more, are they taking more orders?  I still have some finished forms lying around here.

I think they made enough, or close to enough, to fill all the orders by the original date.  But after that date they probably hadn't gotten as many responses as they thought so they exetended.  Then the line died and a bunch of the figures went to deep clearance at multiple stores and suddenly there were a lot more stickers on the market.

I wouldn't have sent for as many skeletons as I did if I hadn't bought a bunch of figures for $3 or less.  I think I even have enough left over coupons that I could have sent for one more but I didn't get the last two till after the second deadline.

I doubt they're still accepting orders but worst that would happen if you sent one in is that it would come back.  I actually should have mailed in more Captain Rex orders after that got extended but didn't.  Forgot to do it by 3/31.  I wonder if that's too late now as well?

Yeah, I love how these "new" factories crop up.

For those of you who got the cards (I did too) have your checks been cashed?  I never noticed mine being cashed, but that doesn't mean it wasn't cashed months ago.  They offered refunds on the post card, which makes me think that they already have my money, I'm just trying to figure out if by some chance I haven't been charged yet and am about to be.  I think my check was for 8 of these things...

I'm pretty certain that the checks have been cashed.  I seem to recall noticing that mine had been and thinking that I'd see my skeletons soon.  Then the delays happened.

So it's been another month and a half and not a peep.  I can't remember what the post-card said.  Did it have an expected ship time?

I sent off for these about 7 months ago!

Postcard said they'd ship sometime around June 15.

I believe.

Good to know.  If they actually follow through on that they could show up sometime in the next few weeks.

Looked at the postcard again yesterday and the shipping date was actually June 10.  The date to refuse the skeletons was May 15.

Yeah - it just occurred to me that the date was June 10th and it's now 20 days later.

So now what gives? I think I might go to Hasbro's website and update my original question from two months ago and ask what's going on...

I called.  They haven't shipped yet.

Their customer service number is 800.255.5516 if anyone else is interested in checking.
