Between this blurb about Hasbro sticking UPC/tracking stickers on the figures and this post:

HTS has bothered to ship my Stormtrooper yet. They were suppose to ship on 7/29. It is still sitting at not shipped status. I think they need more trained monkeys.

It sounds like even the people who managed to get a First Order Stormtrooper from HTS are unhappy with Hasbro?  Man, they really can't win at all these days. :(

Bout sums it up.  :)

Saw a few folks chastised Hasbro over those WM shippers.  *shrugs*  :-\

Well, to be fair, if you are getting this you probably care about the packaging, and to slap that ugly UPC right front and center is kind of a jackhole move. Especially if it doesn't come off easily, which apparently it does not. I could see being irked about that.

But yeah, I don't have THAT much sympathy because AT LEAST THEY GOT ONE!  >:(

How hard would it be to just put the UPC on the back or the bottom?  You know, where almost all UPCs are found?   ???  That's just lazy and inconsiderate.

HTS has bothered to ship my Stormtrooper yet. They were suppose to ship on 7/29. It is still sitting at not shipped status. I think they need more trained monkeys.

Got my shipping notice today (supposed to ship 7/29 as well). I assume they are still trying to sort through the valid or declined CC orders.

I agree that the UPC covering the packaging is a legit gripe. I mean the packaging is pretty much the only reason TO buy this figure.

+1 on my Ant Man and Kreo sets.  Any word on when the second wave of stormtroopers might go up for sale?  Is it typically about a week?  Not holding my breath as I'm sure it will just be for a minute until they've sold out again.

Mine arrived ;D . A lot smaller than what I was expecting (waiting for that's what she said jokes).

Mine arrived today in great shape. The eight year old opened it immediately.  :'(

I was just lucky enough to pick one of these up off eBay for $32 shipped, which to me was a phenomenal deal. Glad I was able to wait out the craziness...I still remember that day these went up on HTS when I was on vacation. Ugh. Redemption!

I came across this link on Facebook and thought maybe it could help someone here.  It looks like a third party seller via Sears' website.  $64.99.
