My set is on order from HTS, along with Maul/Owen, and 4-lom/Zuckuss.

Mine shipped here the other day, but my road's being paved and is closed in the day, so I'm guessing I won't get it for a couple days now.

I put my order in on August 12th and it hasn't shipped yet.

I'm not too impressed by that.

Is this the same for the Maul/Owen set? I placed my order in a while ago too (maybe three weeks ago?) and I still haven't got it. Oh well.

Camie and Fixer arrived tonight...  My road work is, i think, mostly done and so the Fed Ex guy came in late...

Very cool figures.  I like that they're not necessarilly aimed at the comic and more at the films.  I'm a little disappointed that Fixer's coat is sculpted to his torso, not separate.  They're both nicely articulated figures though, and Camie's especially detailed.  her hands are very plain, not sculpted aggressively but rather to hold the pet she has.  The Fixer figure is really nice though, I like them equally. 

Having to get them and pay shipping atop the price they cost KIND of bites, but I'm happy just to get them.  If comics keep coming out with good stuff, at relatively good prices, but only online (and thus you eat shipping), I'm happy to see them come out at a trickle.

The elaborate packaging is completely unnecessary to me though.  I'd 100% be happy if they ditched that stuff to save a couple bucks on the set's prices.  It's not like this stuff is really commemorating anything special.  It felt almost goofy with the Maul/Owen set even.

Both Owen/Maul and Camie/Fixer made me wish for Biggs from the comic before he goes away to the Academy, and the "in between" Obi-Wan from the Maul/Owen set that has him looking older but in his ROTS robes.

My order shipped 8/12 and I am STILL waiting. Last time it made it here from RI in about 2 days. I think there is some kind of problem going on if everyone is experiencing these delays.

FedEx sucks! They have my package within five miles of my house and refuse to deliver it for another two days. At least the USPS doesn't sit on things just to meet their shipping speeds.

Got mine (and my bounty hunters) yesterday.  They came in this ridiculously huge box two times too big for what was inside.  Love the figures, though.  For someone with high nostalgia right now for that period of the OT, they're fun.

I agree.  I'm a carded/boxed collector and I could care less for the fancy packaging....Just going to take up more room.  It is nice though, but ya - no thanks Hasbro.

For me, all that stuff is going into the recycle bin and the two figures are going on a shelf. I believe the packaging is most of the cost.

I agree - I think the overblown packaging for the Maul/Owen and Cammie/Fixer sets borders on the ridiculous.

I didn't feel that these were over-priced though considering that they were exclusive comic packs as opposed to mass released ones.

I keep a lot of my packaging for the stuff I open and right now the Maul/Owen box is keeping the cardbacks from all of the comic packs I opened during the entire run of that sub-line. I'm gonna use the Cammie/Fixer box to store the comics. I figured that's as good a use as any for the boxes.
