I went ahead and emailed and they said they have issued me a replacement order.

I wonder if Iíll get 0, 8, or 16 of these now.

I'm in the same exact boat.

As of this morning, my tracking number finally works.  Shows the package was picked up by UPS 11/4 at 5pm.  Tracking info says I should have the package by 11/10.  Hoping this all works out in the end!

So you might be right.  Maybe they loaded up a semi trailer and temporarily lost it on the lot.

My tracking numbers have also been updated and show the same Nov 10 due date. Looking forward to see these guys come in, Iíve been looking out my window far too much hoping to see them in my front stoop.

My sets just arrived from ShopDisney and delivered last mile by USPS 2 days ahead of schedule. Crazy how the shipping went but very pleased to see them in hand. Hopefully everyone else is about to get theirs.

My order from ShopDisney is finally out for delivery today.  But I have to say, I'm a little disappointed that they don't put the tracking information in the order history on the app.  I dug through a bunch of emails and finally found the tracking info, and it's a similar situation - UPS for the long haul, and USPS handles the home delivery.

Let me know how your sets look. I've been seeing some disappointing reports that the paint is extremely sloppy.

Just got my two sets. Wondering if I'm going to magically get two more now, but at least I got what I've paid for...

Magical extra Stormtrooper sets sounds like a pretty amazing way to start the week.

How are the paint apps?

Alright?  Maybe not great.  Honestly, unless it's terrible and I can tell from like 5 or 10 feet away, I never worry about it.  I just put them on the shelf and think about how the collection is as complete as I know how to make it:

The first set I opened looks ok. The black line over the eyes is a little thin on each of them but nothing too bothersome. I did notice that the torso is a shade darker than the limbs due to the different plastics used for each. But again not too bothersome especially in the right light.

I was annoyed with the choice of long rifle - they went with the POTF2 Commtech Stormtrooper rifle and this guy just cannot hold it. Oh well not the end of the world, I already gave the first two to my son to likely lose.  ;D

My replacement order from Shop Disney just got here.   :o



I swear, all I did was ask if they could look into the tracking number and they just wrote back and said they created a replacement order since I never got them...

That's quite the haul Rob! (The extra troopers, and the sizable bar behind them...) Gotta love it when things work of like that.
