Indy's aren't going through for me...  Death Star's supposed to be more limited, so it's probably done and nothing more.  Indy they didn't really specifically say that one would be as hard to get.

I am sincerely hoping that to be the case...

Seems like all the Exclusives are in the same boat.  I'm almost happy I didn't get a DS set - don't really feel like giving Hasbro a red cent right now after this experience.  Two PCs running with the item in my cart on both computers, and after an hour of refreshing I walk away with nothing.  Screw you Hasbro.

I have a Pink Zarana and an Indy set in my cart.  Up for grabs if I can actually get it to go through...

Ditto... still trying for Indy but wanting the set less and less with each passing minute.   >:(

After sitting on the Payment Information screen for at least 25 minutes, it finally kicked me to the "This page cannot be opened" message.  All I wanted was the Indy set, and I couldn't even get that.  At this point, I don't even care anymore.  Thanks a lot, Hasbro!  >:(

Dang, they went up literally 5 minutes after I went to lunch. All I really wanted was the DS set, and that's gone already.

I did get the Indy set into my cart, but after thinking about I'm not sure if I even want to pull the trigger.

A lot of us have had it in the cart forever, so don't take that as a sign that you would get one anyway.  Sorry guys, I was hoping to nab this and a Zarana for the group, but I'm ready to give up Hasbro and go cool off for a while.  Good luck.

I've been going on every 5 mins or so to try and at least get a measly Zarana, but I can't even get on their site anymore.

Thanks Hasbro!   >:(

Yep, I found this out the hard way. Once I hit Proceed to Checkout it was all downhill from there. "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage."

Meh, I'm over it now. Not worth the aggravation.

This experience has made me realize I don't need any Revenge carded stuff.  I'll stick to the ROTJ basics and Hasbro can go back to blaming me and other collectors for not spending enough money to support their business.

Apparently I was able to get a set of Indy figs and a Zaranna as I just got a confirmation email.  Wouldn't know it as all I was getting was error messages and ****.

The order was placed about 20 minutes ago according to the email, so with my luck all the refreshing I did since then will be an another order.  Fantastic.

I wouldn't really complain about a double order given the number of people that can't get a single order through.  Easy enough to offer up to others if you have extra or simply refuse the second package.  ;)

I don't remember, was it determined if the black Rebel Commando would be out at retail in either the Return or Revenge packaging?
