Anyone have some extra UPCs?  Would like to send off for 2 or 3 Fetts....Kinda difficult to obtain UPCs when I don't open anything.   :-\

Ditto, Mike. I've been looking too, but haven't had any luck yet

I'm amazed how easily the bubble seems to be separating.  It's very strange really.  I wonder if you tortured a basic carded vintage Collection figure like this, would the bubble pull off the card like that?  it's a kind of almost strange natural separation.  It doesn't seem to do all that much damage to the cardback, but clearly it's lifting some of the graphic off of it.

Send me some instructions of how you want me to torture a basic card.  I've only a couple of figures but haven't opened them yet.  I don't give a crap about the cardbacks so lemme know what you want done.

I don't know, haha.  Try maybe repeatedly crushing the bubble some, and then lifting it back to original shape?  That may simulate the abuse they've been getting in their mailer boxes.

Do I need to step on it too?  Or throw it around a bit?  Play fetch with a dog?  Any other stereotypical insults to postal workers I should include?

Empty it into a dumpster if you forgot to deliver it, or maybe open it up and inspect it incase you want to keep it.

Hasbro put up the Redemption Form, so I mailed in for my 2 Rocket Firing Boba Fetts today.  Hope they come in decent packaging condition.

Anyone have some extra UPCs?
I have 3 extra ones.  It's not enough for a mail in, but it'd be closer to the 5 you need.  PM me your address, and I'll mail them off to you.

Finally sent off for this today...hope I get one before they run out. And a decent card would be nice to boot.

On a related note, I now have 4 TVC figs sans UPC's but otherwise unmolested if anyone is interested. (Not likely I know)

I farted around with this on the weekend.  Twisting the card, shaking by just holding the bubble and all manner of other abuse not involving small animals.  Those bubbles are on very solidly and when I finally got the bubble off it tore the paper on the front of the cardback.  Hasbro basically cheaped out on the glue for the mailaway Fetts is the only conclusion I can reach.

That's what I was thinking too.  I've been comparing them, and there's pretty big differences.  It could be they're from completely different factories or something.  It's definitely different.  The bubble plastic feels a little different too.
