My PC was completely locked up trying to get through an order this morning, but I got through pretty quickly the first time I tried my phone.  If you get stuck tomorrow, might be worth trying.

I was stuck delayed at O'Hare Airport all day Monday and missed this. Guess it's another exclusive I'll never own unless I want to pay.

I was in Chicago for 4 days on a mini vacation. My flight out of there on Monday kept getting delayed due to LaGuardia being shut down for weather (plane arriving from there was a few hours late)

I got my HTS order yesterday. I like the Aphra figure and the Astromech in this set, but I've never cared for the C-3PO figure that they turned into 0-0-0 for this set. I feel like my all black protocol droid from the Droid Factory at Disney World is a much better candidate for that figure.

I know I've said it before, but I still do not understand why there isn't better synergy between Hasbro and Disney for what they do with droids, especially when it come to Astromechs and Protocol droids. They could have offered this set at SDCC and then individually carded BT-1 and 0-0-0 on Droid Factory cardbacks and sold them in the parks, since the Droid Factory packaging is identical to vintage as far as card size and bubble position, that would make a suitable alternative to having them in the Vintage line if Hasbro is not inclined to do so.

Bah.  Figures they finally got more in stock.  I waited a little over a week and when they didn't come in stock I resorted to eBay.

Hasbro's site is a mess right now.  Super slow!


Update -- it took me 45 minutes to get through the checkout process!

Peacekeeper, when it absolutely, positively has to be nuked in 30 minutes or less.  Or the next nuke's free!

I got mine the other day and opened it up... anyone else have a problem with that protocol droid?  Either his back panel pops off or his face does and I can't get them to stay on without a little sticky tack or something like that.

Same problem the C-3PO he's based off of had. It's disappointing when there's better protocol droids out there but they went the cheap route.

I canít leave anything in the package, takes up too much space.
