Not to be cruel, but I would seriously laugh if you guys had to go through what many of us Joe collectors had to go through to get their Docs.  The Star Wars team seems to have their act together, but Doc was Hasbro's last mail away that they totally ****** up on.

They dropped the ball on the Crystal Skeletons from the IJ line, too.  But almost every Star Wars mailaway in recent memory seems to have been well managed.

Got my first mailed in, gotta get on the ball and get the rest out here.  I plan to try for about 10, actually.  I want to do some customizing with a couple and things.   Good fodder with QGJ too.  I'm excited to get these.

I have an original Eopie and this one looks more yellow. I will take a shot of them together when my 6 arrive. This was a great mail away set. Hasbro has done a great job on all of the exclusives including Indy. I got Crystal Skeletons up to this past July. Hasbro has always come through in my experience.

I will tomorrow and post here.  I opened both of them and they look great!  This is the only EPI item I never received, so I'm glad to finally get one now.

I can't be the first person to get this....so many of you sent in your POP's and order forms before me!

Someone at Scum got theirs and posted.  I never got this item either Matt, so I'm happy to get several.  Actually I plan on moving QGJ's legs over to that new Jedi that's too short from the Geonosis 2 packs.

It took Hasbro almost a full year after my checks cleared to deliver my Docs to me.  I still feel burnt on that, but glad to hear these are shipping.  Might actually go ahead and send in for a couple now and hope for the best.

Great pics Matt!  - as I'm writing out my check and filling in the order form.   :)

Forgive me for being ignorant, but what was the reasoning as to why the Eopie wasn't released in the states back in the day?

Because every store was clogged with 1000 JarJar/Kaduu and QuiGon/Opee sets.  The backlog killed the beast line before the Eopies got out.  Hasbro dumped what little they had made overseas, where I guess the beast backlog wasn't as bad.

Thanks Matt. :)

And I got one of my sets today...  I spaced my orders out so I keep getting crap at random because I'm immature like that, and enjoy getting stuff in the mail.

I got mine today.   ;D  Super happy to finally have this piece in my collection.  It was sort of a holy grail for a long time.  Closest I ever came was C2.  A dealer had one and was willing to trade my Jorg Sacul for it.  I didn't want to trade one grail for another, so I didn't.  I think it worked out in the long run.  I find myself being very nostalgic for Episode 1.  Not the best movie, by any means, but it was the first new Star Wars movie, the one we all waited for, and I have always loved the designs.
