For those who've gotten their sets, how long did it take to arrive? I sent mine out about a month ago, and I wanted to get a time frame for when it will come. Thanks!

I think it took 4-6 weeks to get mine, so I would think you should expect yours anytime now.

I sent away for one never got it.
Called Hasbro shipped to a different address and I still never got it. I bought it last week at a toy show for $20. Chewie was the only reason to get it. I love the 70's slick hairdew on him.....

Hmmm  that's weird Jack.  Twice it didn't make it to you?  $20's not a bad price mind you, all things considered, but still you had to get two other sets so that sucks.  Maybe one will show up some time?  :-\

Yes, it sucks but sh@t happens. I think the mail men saw the white box that says Star Wars Figures on it. just a hunch.
BAD KARMA. I suppose. I will have to be on my best behavior.
One note Hasbro customer service is way cool and very accomodating. If you ever have a problem give them a call. they will take care of you.  :D

I just mailed away for my George Lucas. This time I sent it priority mail with delivery confirmation. I better get this one. 8)

I just got a set from ebay for $11.  I feel good.  All I want is that Chewie everyone is talking about. :o

I'd like to find one of these sets- Chewie looks way cool, and R2 looks nice- I think he's VOTC with only the door, and it might be glued on like with TSC R2. But in any case I never frown at another almost-VOTC R2 to display!

According to rebelscum this offer has been renewed to last through the end of the year? Is this true? If so... where the heck do I get a form for one of these, and how much does it cost?

Sorry for my n00b questions- I'm sure this stuff has already been said somewhere, I just haven't found it. Probably in a really obvious place :(

Yeah, Artoo is just like TSC Hoth. You could get the kit from walmart.com for the low, low price of $29.88 + shipping... Or look for a clearanced one at a Walmart store. You can see on their web page that the offer has been extended through 2006.

Yeah it's extended...  Put out a wants for one of these sets on our classifieds boards and someone may have one for you Mitsu.

I'd like another Chewie but I'm not too concerned about it.

Good set but one's enough for me I think.

I got my second set a week or two ago. I had mailed it out on the last day of the 3/31 deadline. I specifically got a second set because of the Chewie head sculpt, and I'm very happy with the decision. The Leia is also very nice to have.

When the sets went on sale, for about $9.00 in March, I bought two and sent them out that day. It took 6 weeks and they both arrived at my home the same day. I left one closed and opened one. And yes, Chewie is my favorite by far! ;D
