I got an email today (after I had signed up for the lightspeed pass) that told me I could now order the holiday edition yoda. Are there three forum users that will not be able to order this figure because you are not a member? If so, I can order up to four. I need one and I can sell the others (for same price plus shipping) to those that need him. Just PM me or email me at untyl@aol.com if interested. Offer is open to the first three users who respond. Here is a copy of the email:

It’s time!

We are ready to take your order for Hasbro Holiday Yoda figures, brought to you exclusively by the Official Star Wars Fan Club. Go to http://starwars.paizo.com/holidayyoda and place your order now for up to 4 of these collectible figures.

As a member of the Official Star Wars Fan Club, a Lightspeed Pass holder, and a recipient of this important email from Paizo.com, you may now purchase your Yoda figures online. Only those who have received this Lightspeed Pass email will be able to order at this time.

You may order starting now or any time after this, while supplies last. If you do not order immediately please rest assured that there are many Holiday Yoda figures in stock -- more than enough for all current Lightspeed Pass holders, even if everyone orders the maximum of 4 figures per person.

After our subscribers with Lightspeed Passes have had sufficient time to order their figures, we will open up sales to subscribers who are not holding Lightspeed Passes. Finally, if we have any Holiday Yoda figures left in stock, we will open up ordering to everyone.

If you have specific questions about the Holiday Yoda figure or the ordering process, please email us at holiday.yoda@paizo.com.

“Santa Yoda” is the second of the Holiday Edition commemorative figures produced by Hasbro - a 3-3/4” scale Yoda dressed in Santa garb and shipped in a plastic case that’s suitable for display. Included with each figure is a full-sized greeting card featuring a reproduction of the 1980’s Lucasfilm holiday card art by Ralph McQuarrie, the concept artist responsible for much of the look of the originalStar Wars trilogy.

Enjoy! And Happy Holidays from the folks at Paizo.

Yeah, I got that same e-mail on the subject. I went to the site, but my subscription/membership was not attached to the right area. I had to e-mail Piazo and they attached it, but I was having problems getting to the ordering page.

Got mine in the mail today, came in great shape.
I was a bit surprises that these are packaged different from last year, although still cool.

What kind of different are we talking about Banthaholic? I mean id it all a clear case? Or is it packaged similar to the Saga scenes? I'm still waiting for mine. I think I had it delivered standard mail. I can't remember if we had a choice of delivery, but the UPS driver was here today already.

I don't know what is going on because I ordered mine about a MONTH ago and still have not received it. I wonder what happened to it. Is standard mail that slow? I bet they are slow to process the orders.

No it's not in a clear bubble case this year.
It's in sort of a screen ceen like cardboard, with a bubble attached to it. Kind've hard to describe, hopefully my photo will show a bit.

Yeah I won't worry. I signed up for my lightspeed pass just as we were getting infro about it out of the summer conventions. Becasue I signed up right away I was able to order it from the first batch of invites.
So I'd image you should be getting yours in the next week or so.

I ordered four Yodas and two silver Boba Fetts on October 23 and received the Fetts on November 12 and the Yodas on November 14. Paizo sent me an e-mail with the UPS tracking info so I was able to monitor the progress of the packages. The packing is well done, each figure is rolled in the large-bubble bubble wrap to help protect them.

Last year's Holiday Edition should have been released this way as well. I never did see the 3PO or R2 at any Wal-Mart and had to buy from eBay, but even then it was still under $20 with shipping. I think they've skyrocketed in price since.

Yeah, I'm hoping mine show up soon. I ordered two. One to open, and one to leave in it's case. I made the error of not buying 2 of the 3PO and R2 one from a couple years back and they had two on the pegs. But I thought I'd leave one for another collector, and haven't seen them at retail since.

Also waiting for issue #72 of the Star Wars insider. Must be a Piazo thing..... :D

Thanks for putting my mind at ease, guys. I have been patiently waiting and I guess I will have to continue to be patient.

I just got an e-mail from a company that notifies you when something is being shipped to you UPS. It has a link that you can track your shipment, and this time it was from Piazo which can only mean my holiday Yoda(s) are on the way, due here by the end of the week!

What was your final tally on these, guys? Did anyone wind up getting any extras they'd consider selling? Im going to have to get one at some point, and haven't made any arrangements. PM me if you might consider helping me out.

Sorry Reason, all 4 of mine are for myself and 3 friends.
Will they ship to Canada if there are some left after the initial sale?
If not, I'll gladly jump on it when they open them back up to the public.

I thought I placed my order last month but I just checked my records and I first ordered them 2 weeks ago today. So I have awhile to wait, I expect. As long as I get these by Xmas . . . 2 of them are gifts . . . :)

I got a second e-mail today stating that Paizo has shipped another package to me. Well I'm not sure though, it had a seperate tracking number from a place called QuantumViewNotify@ups.com. This site allows me to track my packages if the sender so desires. The first tracking number I checked on shows only results of the first day and it's already the third day. The second tracking number the sitr says I have to agree to the terms before tracking. All I know is I better have them here by the end of the week.

Well, I got both of my Yoda's today, wrapped individually in bubble wrap, that however did not save the box they were shipped in. I saw the box and went "Oh no". I openeded it, and the first one I unwrapped had a giant dent in the bubble, and the second one had a crease in the card all the way across. Very dissapointing. I'm trying to decide if I will return both, or just open the one with the crushed bubble, and keep the one with the crease as it's across the back of the card and not noticable in the front.

bobafrett- Even if you don't want to return 1 or both I'd email Paizo about your Yoda's just so they know they sent out damaged merchandise. I had a problem with my silver Fett's and they were very helpful and appreciated my feedback. They had no problem sending me replacements and cut me a check for shipping the damaged figures back in a very timely fashion. :)

I think that my Yoda's are being delivered by tiny little gnomes........I just looked at my tracking info......5 days to go from Washington to Decatur, IL. Yes, part of it was over the weekend, but still.......I thought I would have these by Turkey Day to decorate around the place with.....ohh well, at least they are coming......
