I'm pretty pumped just to get the chance to get a few Eopies for the Tatooine **** shelf.  One for QGJ, one for Obi to make the handoff, and maybe a couple just for some Jawas or something.

You need one so Jar Jar can sniff its farts too.  :P

Good call...  Maybe I could make it smell like that one Masters of the Universe figure did. 

Or maybe I'll just eliminate all Jar Jar and give an extra Eopie to anything remotely better on the shelf.  Even Darth Vader can ride one or something.

What happened with the Joe packs?

6 comic pack stickers + $4.95 = 1 Doc figure.  Hasbro cashed everybody's checks/money orders but they weren't sending about half of the figures out to people as promised.  Took me more than six months instead of 6-8 weeks as promised.  Eventually had to call Hasbro and fax over copies of my cashed checks since I wasn't on their "list"  Very long and drawn out.  There's about 800 different threads on it over at Hisstank.com.  Anywhoo.....

Similar problems did not occur on the Rex or Indy offers, I wouldn't worry too much about it

Rex was super easy, and Indy they are actually getting more figures made because people sent in more orders than they had figures for.

I will be getting at least three of these. One to keep MIP/MIB, one to have open and one to give Obi-Wan from EP3.

I think this is a great idea for a mail-away. I'm a bit surprised that they did this, but I'm glad they did.

I'm still waiting on all of my Crystal Skeletons, but I had no problem getting all of my Captain Rex figures, so hopefully, this will be easy to get.

I'm not expecting this to be any more proof-of-purchase or stickers, but I do expect us to pay double or triple for "shipping".

I'll be happy to get this set. I have one from the EPI era. But, I always wanted at least one more. Thanks Hasbro, even though it is a bit late in the offering.

Yeah, Hasbro should have included a fart smelling Jar-Jar figure instead of a high quality Qui-Gon! It should have included a commtech chip to with the "Pee-yousa!" line.  Then this set would really be in demand.

I'm very glad this is being rereleased but I don't know if I'll bother since I'm not going to pick up the needed basic figures in the first place.

And I'm still getting used to seeing the words "10th Anniversary" and "The Phantom Menace" in the same sentence.

2. Clearly print your name, address, e-mail and date of birth in the spaces provided.

I'm going to clear off room on the shelf for my new eopie herd.

It's more like $50 for us who don't open stuff which means I'll have to be good with my Ep 1 version.

All you have to do is ask and I'm sure someone in the MN group can hook you up with 5 UPCs to save you that "$50".   :P
