So, as per the Q&A this round on the front page, it seems like it's 5 POP, and will go back to the Red packaged stuff too...  Meaning if that Boba offer pops up early online to print-out, people should be able to start sending in for them immediately.  I threw out half my BAD figure POP's but kept a baggie full incase I wanted another Vebb.

Good to have that information ready.

That's great news! I didn't want to have to throw out my red LC POPs when TVC starts. There was a story on Rebelscum (last week?) in which a reader had already(!) gotten 2 mail-away Bobas - I wonder how he did it. There were pictures of the Bobas and everything.

It was from an overseas collector.

I'm glad you guys asked about the requirements on that Boba Mail-away.  Apparently that information was irrelevant on the RS forum, they were more concerned with the Vintage Collection hanger tags and if they'd be punched by the factory or not.

The Fett is unpunched in those recent pics BTW  :P

To be a true vintage tribute, the mail-away Boba Fett should not be carded.

Peacekeeper, when it absolutely, positively has to be nuked in 30 minutes or less.  Or the next nuke's free!

Excellent point Mr. Fury.

Great to know that we can still use all of the Legacy collection UPC's.

Which is interesting because we posted some carded Wave 1 Vintage samples which were brand new, and they were all punched.  I wonder if they went the extra mile on Fett, and the basic figures are just going to come out with the holes punched.

Mailed off for my first two this morning.   ;D 

The placement of the stickers didn't turn out to be a big a concern as I might have thought; either I lucked out or whoever (or whatever) is doing it is placing them where it looks best.

Is it okay to send out the Boba Fett offers so soon?

The cases do indeed indicate that they are not to be sold until August 6th.

Sure I know there are leaks and nothing will come of them, but I could see Hasbro rejecting any submissions that come in before the date the product is supposed to be sold.

I was wondering the same thing about the Sargeant Bric offer too - technically we're not supposed to be in possession of either certificate at this point.

I don't think I'd worry about it.  I plan on sending them in as soon as I pick up the forms which, hopefully, will be this weekend after I make a trip to TRU. 

Although I'm not holding out hope there will be anything left to buy since this stuff already dropped a couple days ago.

I probably wouldn't chance it.  I'd either use a form from a figure or a printed form if Hasbro offers one on their website like they did for Vebb and the Eopie.

The redemption company would probably honor it, as long as the POPs and check were in there, but the forms should be easy enough to pick up, so why chance it?
