Well, the only problem I have with you selling them, is that I was kind of hoping to see some pics of 24 white Boba Fetts posed ready for battle.  ;D

Now that would have been cool!

I sent 1 check, 1 order form, 1 Bag O' UPC's for 24 in a padded yellow envelope for my first order the day they offered the form. I got the case and an extra box of 4.

Wow - so that does work?

Did you include a letter or anything else with it indicating that you were bulk ordering 24? Or do you think they just figured it out based on the 120 UPCs and the check for $167.76?

I have only one "real" form now and I want ten of these - I already have my 50 UPCs, it would be great if I could just use the one form I have now...

This is news to me as well.  I only ordered two, but filled out two forms, envelopes, checks, and used 2 stamps.  Definitely worth combining it all into one package in the future!  Thanks JOT!

I dunno why, but there's just something about the pristine look of the white boxes and the actual mail-away... I'm still pissed there's a slightly visible crease on my rocket-firing Boba. ::)

No since the original one is shipping in the packed in figures I believe.

For people that printed the redemption form, did you just cut it out and fold it in half?

Yep, exactly what I did...

So basically all the RS-started drama means nothing. They will take any form you got.

Yep, except for the watermarked one printed off their site.

I received three of the four I ordered today (the fourth was mailed in a couple of days later so I should receive that one in the next few days). 

The figures are well packed in the mailers and thencards are nice and unpunched.

The figure itself is really nice and looks good with the rest of the mandos in my collection.

I received mine today as well- despite not being double boxed like the rocket fett, the one I opened appeared to have held up well. The cardboard insert that wraps around the bubble was a good idea-
The gray does seem a bit dark, but I like the look. Nice figure, and I love mail-aways- it sure beats the store distribution system.  Thanks Hasbro!

Got mine too, and it's dreamy.

I'm going to aim for 10 I think.  I was going to get just a couple but now 10 opened is kind of my idea.  I like the "Mando Army" notion behind Boba or something like that.

Got mine today. My son is having a good time with it. I might have to order another. Do you think they will take the UPC from the back of this one?  :P

It's a TVC figure so I'd think so.
