I got another today.

I staggered these because, like a moron, I get all kid-like when I get a white mailer box in out of the blue. :)

Shitdamn.  I ordered 5, all in the last week of the promotion, but no sign of them.  Too early for me to be nervous about Mandalorian-obsessed mailmen stealing them from me?

Yeah, I've got a lot left. :)  No panic yet, but the final several i sent in for are what's arriving now for me, so I think they're winding down.

My last batch of checks were cashed on 4/27 (I had mailed some on that Saturday the 31st), so I expect to get those fetts in the next week or two. I do like mail-aways  :)

My last run was 7. We addressed them to my daugters, and the pets. That way the mailer box is collectible too (at least from our perspective).  ;)

I topped out at 4.  I just got annoyed with filling out the forms AND writing out the checks.  It's a painful reminder that most of my written communications are typed on a keyboard.

I forget my total # I ordeered but maybe it was 12 or so?  I know I'm on my last ones but I spread them out throughout the last 2 weeks of ordering in hopes that I'd get some random stuff often just for the fun of getting random stuff.

I ordered Zero.  Meant to, gt reminders from Jesse about once a week during the last months even.  I suck. They will probably make me sell the website now. 

Rob did send me one, so I do have one.

I went for 15. I was not sure if I wanted to army build, but I figured better safe than sorry. Paul, if you want an extra or three feel free to  PM me.

Doesn't that seem a little excessive?

No more so than buying 100 Stormtroopers or something...

I got an "army" of the Fett's to have like a Mandalorian squad behind my Boba and Jango figures.  Like they're a team they call up for something.  I'm going to probably shave the wookiee braids off the "team".  Don't know if I'll hang onto all of mine or not though.  Probably will though.

Excessive is definately a tough word to toss around on a website with dozens of individuals with thousands of figures!
If Hasbro wanted to put a limit on them, they sure could have as they have in the past (5 per household or whatever).
At least with the mail away, it's not leaving anyone in the cold like army building at retail. I don't blame anyone that does it, because we all have our desires for what our collection looks like. I was a big army builder for a long time, but that takes figures off the shelves for others (and is nearly impossible in an age of 1 figure per case, sometimes in only one assortment).

I haven't heard of anyone not getting a Fett, or getting one of the dreaded "unavailble" post cards that have been part of some mail-aways.

With the mail away, all anyone had to do was send in the $7 and some cardboard. I wish they would make more army builders available that way- Rebel fleet trooper, gamorrean, imperial commander, good stormtroopers,  etc.

If they made army builders available by mail-away and sending in $9, I'd probably **** my pants.  I'd then buy a box of envelopes, a book of stamps, and a new batch of checks.
