As long as it comes on time and undamaged they could ship it in a cereal box for all I care. As long as I get it and it is minty fresh, I'm good. :)

Unfortunately, I haven't heard any word on this.  Anyone think to ask the Hasbro guys at C3?   :-\

Jeff: "Are the EB figures here going to be carded or in a mailer box when they ship?"

Hasbro Guy: "Yes."

Jeff: "Yes carded, or Yes Mailer box?"

Hasbro Guy: "Not quite sure yet.  No firm decision has been made."

More proof this was all thrown together at the last second.

I really hope they're in generic mailers. If they show up in some sort of unique packaging like the EE Clones, I'll be super-pissed. I won't be able to open them if that happens.

And why not? You should try it. It feels so good. :)

I laughed out loud when I read the "Yes" part. The guy must have only heard the carded part. :P

Nope, he heard the whole thing.  Surprisingly JediMac JediWhack was silent long enough for Jeff to get the question out.  It was classic Hasbro all the way ;)

Hmmm.  Selective memory.  I was there and don't even remember that.   :(

That whole thing happened more than once.  I, in my poor judgment, took a seat in the back and they didn't hear my question clearly at all.  I even tried deepening my voice, and it still didn't get up to them as clearly as I wanted because their answer didn't even jive with what I really asked.

Thinking about this set, once again Hasbro comes up with something half assed. I like the figs, but what is the point of the display stand if only 4 figs will be produced for it?  We know Hasbro said this was a one time thing, but who would not of wanted a soft goods Tusken, Jawa and a new Grey DS Trooper.  I can definitely live with the VOTC figs we received last year to fill in the void on this stand but these 3 figs would of been a perfect chance for VOTC to tie in with the mail in promotion.

Sure you can open them if they are in fancy packaging.  We collect figures, not cardboard.   ;)

I wish that were true.  Unfortunately, a lot of us collect both.  And yeah, if these show up in a fancy window box, or carded, I'm gonna have to nab me an additional set to keep packaged as well.  Praying for white mailer boxes...  ;)

And some of us are so mentally off-kilter (pointing at myself) that they sent away for two ANYWAY 'cause even if they come in a white mailer box, there is a need to have a set of them MIB even if it's a bland/blank white mailer box you can't see the product inside.

I have an unopened white mailer box for every mail-away figure of the modern era (and some of the vintage era) that ever came in that format.
