Cool.
Thanks for the input guys.
Some of the people I know who collect SW are not getting any of these new ones, so I may send away for as many as I can so I can give them as gifts.

Huh...Whaddaya know?  Guess I'll try and send in for a few more Fetts thanks to Dan's extra TAC UPCs.   :)

Got my two today. I'm just not as lucky as others, both crushed; even double boxed. One fared ok though, the card is really curvy but the bubble survived undamged. I'd just liked to have had the inner box not crushed. I can probably flatten the card out and it will look great. Just a heads up that not all are surviving. Not a realy big deal for me though, the promotion runs until 2011 and I don't think you can have too many of this guy.

My 2 came in the mail today both in great condition.  The outter boxes really had no damage to them, and there were no issues with the inner boxes.  Yay, I've got them!

Hasbro said in the Q/A round (I can't find which website asks the question) that they'll continue with the 2-box shipping method. It's a great idea, it really shows that they paid attention to customer complaints... this time.

Sent off for my two Fetts last week and the checks were cashed today...boy that was quick.  Hopefully that means they'll be here sooner rather than later, but who knows.

Got my Fett today... really fast too since I only mailed away for it the Tuesday before Thanksgiving, a little over a month ago. Despite being mailed in basically 2 packages (one of those thick white cardboard mailers, and inside that was the labeled "ROCKET FIRING BOBA FETT" we've become used to with these mail-aways), the card was still bent to hell and back. You can also tell they were really generous with the glue, as the back of the card behind the bubble looks like a sheet of paper after a 1st grader finished arts-and-crafts time.

Probably going to mail away for another one or two, mainly because I kind of want an opener (or one with a better card) and I have a ton of POPs from Vintage figures.

I'm just wondering, but which part of the TVC cardbacks is the actual POP? I'm running out of Legacy POPs, so I'm gonna have to start using them from the TVC cardbacks also.

Noticed that my checks were cashed today.  Here's hoping I have unsquashed Fetts on the way!

Got mine yesterday. Boxes were in excellent condition, but the card was warped some. I expect they just shoved it in there. Oh well, I'll be opening it anyway.

Got mine yesterday in minty condition.  Pretty sweet.  Now I'm tempted to get a second.

Got my Fetts today.  Oddly enough I'm not as excited about these now that I finally have them in hand.  Glad they're minty fresh though.   :)
