I've been seeing reports of these arriving in poor condition.  My 2-pack arrived yesterday along with the BB droid 4-pack, but they were both in pretty good condition.

Yeah, sounds like some are arriving damaged even though they were well-packed.  Mine came with a bent-up card and a dented/squished bubble...

I'm picturing Disney employees giggling as they mangle the packaging then tossing it in the box.

I'm picturing Donald Duck trying to pack it up then getting stuck to the tape and then doing sorts of nonsense to get free as he loses his temper, then crashes into a pile of MOC figures.

Got mine yesterday. 

The outside box was crushed but the figure card/bubble were all in great shape.  I ripped the packaging apart and put the figures on the shelf  >:D

Weird. Mine just showed up today completely covered in bubble wrap. Card was in mint condition therefore I instantly ripped it open. :-p

Mine had something like tissue paper around the astromech figure 2-pack, and more around the BB unit 4-pack.  The cardback was flush against the 4-pack and in good shape.

It would be nice if that was the standard for packing from Disney.

Mine arrived in a padded plastic envelope in about the same shape as Jeff's. As an opener I'm not particular about the packaging as long as the figures are ok, but I can't help but feel cheesed that's the best my $4.95 in shipping could muster. (Large accounts don't pay the same retail rate we Joe-Schmoe pay.)

Oh, well. Figure are decent. Wondering how much -- if any -- screen time they'll have.

25% off orders on the Disney Parks app until November 12 for anyone who hasn't picked this set up yet.

I still need it so I'm placing an order.

Like the Clone Wars droid 4-pack, this set is also landing at Disney Store outlets on clearance.

I didn't even realize there was such a thing as a Disney Outlet store.  Looks like the closest Disney Outlet is 600 miles away.  :'(

Whenever we go to WI Dells, I always try to stop into the outlet mall in Baraboo and check out the Disney Outlet there.  Last time we were out there (two summers back) I picked up a couple of the 2016 Rogue One astromech 4-packs for cheap.  Make a pit stop there on the way to your next Packers game!  :P

They're not super-common.  But on occasion you can find some interesting things there.

Stopped by the one in Cincy this last weekend on our way home and scored the TFA droid 2-packs for $7.50 each.  I got 3 because Iím dumb.
