Local guy got his today.

Mine is still DOA.  So I think I have missed the boat.

Oh and I lost the bet, he did indeed get the set.  In the Boxed Set Shipping box even.

So no Indy set, Paul? Also, wasn't there going to be a contest here for a Death Star?

The mailman just dropped off a box with the Indy Set.  So it looks like we will be having a partial giveaway....

Woohoo!  Very cool.  Did you get the rest of your personal stuff as well or just this?

Every single day I get happier that I didn't buy this turd and instead gave my money to Japan.

No but the set I gave my son has been abandoned for Smurfs so I am going to just "share" with him.

As far as the Star Wars set goes, I ordered the Case from EE.com that has the Revenge figs plus Walrus Man and Hoth Rebel, so I am not worried.

Hats off to Paul on it.  He's made an effort to get these for the site himself.

Tell me about it.  Spreading the addiction fun is the part of the hobby I enjoy most nowadays.

I personally won't be entering the Death Star contest (no interest in the set) but I agree with the love for the giveaways. So much better than the Chris Berry era where JediMAC sent you a box of freebie crap he had left over from Celebration III. :-*

I hesitate to post out of fear of jinxing myself, but any word on who won the contest that ended Mon., Sept. 12?

There were a LOT of entries to sort through and unfortunately a lot fraudulent/duplicate entries, so it's taking a bit longer to go through them all - hopefully this weekend we can announce a winner!
