Thanks for the pics, I was trying to figure out Adam Pawlus' descriptions of the new joints.

Nice pics, and I hope to send in for one this week.  I haven't yet because I jus tdon't buy enough figures from CW3D, but I did print out a form, so I'm on my way to getting one now.

I'm pondering ordering two though, so I can custom one to a realistic Vebb maybe.  Keep the head/hands perhaps for a youthful appearance, and maybe change the legs and arms or something?

That's a great mail-away figure though, kudos for the offer.

I got this figure a couple of months ago. They were selling him through a shop called Argos in the UK. I ended up buying an animated Kit Fisto  to go with him but I think he can blend in alright with the realistic figures, especially if you throw a cloak on him.

It seems like they're trying some new articulation out on some of these animated figures. I haven't seen one in person, but I hear the IG droid has some kind of moving pincers and the sliding head on the new Rex is another example. Do you think any of these new techniques will make it into the realistic line?

I'm very, VERY surprised at how fast this offer is gonna expire - June 30th! It's already April (!), and the Qui-Gon and Eopie offer started in August and ended March 31st - which was a pretty lengthy run.

I understand that the Nahdarr stickers started appearing in 2010 Wave 1, but those cases/waves didn't appear until February in most places. And for some people (like me :(), those cases have yet to appear!

I thought it was short but with the announcement of another offer coming this Fall, along with the Fett offer, it's not really a bad idea.

I've seen the wave of figures with the stickers, and order forms, at a couple of stores now but haven't bought any.  I used the printed form from the HTS.com website to order mine.  The offer may have a short window but Hasbro didn't really try to hide the offer or make it difficult to send for.  Hell, they gave us 7 months to send for the Qui-Gon/Eopie figs and I still saw some posts today that people put it off and didn't make the deadline.

The longer the offer, the longer you have to put it off.

Very good point. I, too, (unfortunately) am a procrastinator, and I mailed away for a single Qui-Gon/Eopie set a few days before the deadline.

I FINALLY got my check in the mail today for this guy. (A spare) Took me hours to track down the empty boxes for the proper POP's. I've only bought 5 figures for opening EVER, luckily all within the past 6 months so they qualify.

I've seen reports coming in that people are receiving their Vebb figures in the US.  My check was cashed a couple of weeks ago so I'm hoping I get a figure in this first slug like I did with the Eopie.

Ditto.  Both of mine were waiting in the mailbox when I got home from work. 

Man, Nahdar is a really nice figure.  Glad that they decided to make him after all.  :)

Got my first two yesterday. I'm sure my follow-on three which I sent away for a week or so later will be coming shortly as well...

I haven't had a chance to open one of them up yet, but I can tell he is a very cool figure.

Mine showed up yesterday and I was so excited.  As you can tell from my avatar I love Mon Calamari so a Jedi one made me super excited.  I also have a display shelf of characters with lightsabers but now I can't decide if I want to open this one or not.  :-\
