Was pondering that myself...  nobody tried that I'm aware.

I'm using the UPC's I had and calling it a day.  Might try a last minute one using Maul stuff maybe, just give it a whirl.  If it works great.  If not, eh, I'll just void the check out ultimately.

Finally going to mail away for mine within the next few days since the deadline is about a month away. I'm assuming I shouldn't try sending any Movie Heroes/Maul Packaging UPC codes?

I've been waiting on sending out for one of these for a friend.  I had 4 UPCs from Vintage figures here and was waiting for the new stuff for the next UPC.  I picked up a Phase II Clone and threw in that UPC to get to 5.  They cashed my check.  I don't think sending in 5 from the new stuff would be a problem.

Interesting...  Might be worth getting a couple more or something.

I'll glady send off for more...when the magic fairy gives me some offer forms. I only ever got one.

No figures..NONE in this area in the past 3 months with that form in the package.  But, hey, everyone wants a chance to win a big Darth Maul, right?  ::)

The only thing with the forms here, for the last little while anyway, was a couple Keyan Farlanders at K-Mart...

I had a good stream of stuff for a while, but that dried up fast.

I think this may honestly be one of the first times a mail-away figure was actually hard(er) to get for many folks.  The UPC's were available, but the forms were not.  What was it, like 3 waves that had the forms?  7, 8, and 9?  And out of them, only 8 was ultimately easy for anyoen to get and it was all recards, and even then 8 was only easy to get speaking relatively.  Figures like the TIE Pilot and stuff were still rougher finds.

I sent off for 4 of them about a month ago, and they arrived today.

I sent off for five earlier this week. Hope I wasn't too late. Damn procrastinators...

I doubt it, Hasbro is probably sitting on a butt load of the figures. Makes me wonder what happens to the extras.

Yeah I sent probably 4 in within the last 2 weeks...  I got a nice grouping coming my way, and that'll be a nice little squad to hang out with Boba I guess.

My four Fetts arrived today. Haven't opened them yet to check the card condition, but here's hoping I have at least ONE minty one.

I got one before I left for a trip this weekend.  I should have quite a few more on the way.  Yay!  :D

Recieved the two I ordered last week. They both arrived in excellent condition. Now to figure out which one to open and which one to keep carded.
