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.

If that's the case, then I've got a whole army of POTF2 Stormtroopers, DS Gunners, and Rebel Fleet Troopers just waiting for your check(s) and UPCs!   :-X

I guess I should stipulate it'd have to be the army builders worth $9...  So yeah, it'd be all the stuff that's a bitch to find, even at $9 at stores though.

You can keep using those POTF2 and POTJ army builders to heat up there in quasi-canuckia!  >:(

I got a postcard in the mail today regarding my Boba Fetts:

Quote
We have received your redemption request for the Boba Fett Prototype Armor collectible figure - thank you!  This promotion was extremely popular - so much so that Hasbro has to make more figures to fulfill all the orders.  As such, there will be a delay in receiving your figure(s).  Your order is scheduled to ship on July 20, 2012.

It goes on to say I can cancel if I want.  Jeez, I thought for sure this would be a way I could get a new figure sometime before January (which is when I found the TPM wave).  Ugh.

Ryan, if you are looking for the person who jinxed you on the postcard, here he is...

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.

I'm afraid he's right! I expect I'll be getting post cards instead of Fetts today  :P

But I am very glad Hasbro is going to deliver- I remember this happening with my Sgt Bric as well. They may be making some odd decisions with the lines, but at least they stand behind the mail away.

Edit: post card arrived!Great condition too...

My postcard came today too. Very beat up, big fold diagonally. Sigh.

I'm sure people will complain when these finally do arrive that the mailer box didn't have an easily removed sticker or something.

Two more at my door today...  Looks like the fresh round of them is making its way out. :)  I'm giddy.

I got a hefty box full of Fetts in the mail yesterday, so they are shipping.

Two more arrived today, addressed to my older daughter. I'm sure she'll treasure them forever...  ;D

They truly do make a sweet little Mando Merc squad behind Boba...  Dunno why I like them for that, but they're cool.  I will say though, you almost need to shave off the wookiee scalps.  I figure not all Mando's have those.  They shave off very easily though.

Mine showed up as well today.  I was very impressed by the cardboard insert that filled up the "negative" space.  Very well done.

I wholeheartedly agree, and am actually glad I got my order for 3 in a little late so I didn't wind up with one of those earlier smashed boxes like others did.  Despite the nice package, and minty boxes mine showed up in, all three of the cards were actually a little dinged in at the top left edge - weird.  No biggie really, since they're probably all getting opened anyway.  Cool figure though, which bums me out even more that we're not getting anymore mailaway offers in the near future.

Softgoods suck.  Almost as much as the Prequels.

I think I got the last of mine today, and they combined them in to a larger box. The upside is they are in perfect boxes with no labels. The downside is I had filled some of those last forms out with my wife's name, my daughter's name, and even the dog's. I was looking forward to the little collection of personalized fett boxes. I guess the mando army grows some more-

Just in case Hasbro is reading:

# 1- Thanks, love these

# 2- I am more inclined to buy extra figures in the future if there is a mail away. Not for extra droid parts.

All five of mine came today; probably would have gotten here last week, but we were out of town and had a hold put on the mail.  They're neat.
