I got mine last week, only sent away 30th June, and didn't have to pay anything!:D Not often the UK gets good deals on SW!

I haven't gotten mine yet either. But I haven't actually mailed off the little gold stickers yet, so there's a chance that it's my fault.

Mine just came in today:D Very cool set. I think I'm going to get a extra set of these.

I, too, got mine today. They're pretty good, the case is nice. I think I'll keep them in this case and not the folding 30th Anniv. one. I can't recall when I mailed in for them or when the check was cashed, but it was probably no more than 5 weeks ago.

And BigB, I think that tiny little detail about mailing them in might be fairly important... :rolleyes:

Got mine today. It's a nice little set, and I hate to put them in the large coin holder, as the one they came in is pretty nice on it's own.

I wish they did another mail away figure.......coins just don't do it for me. As dorky as a George Lucas on POTF2 Stormie body was, that was way better than coins.

As dorky as a George Lucas on POTF2 Stormie body was, that was way better than coins.I think they're warming up to ake this a yearly offer. In the Kenner days, you had mail-aways (mails-away?) for at least 6 figs (Fett, 4LOM, Nunb, Ackbar, Emperor, Anakin) plus a Survival Kit (of extra guns, backpacks, masks, belts, etc.). Hasbro has had figs (B'Omarr, Han Trooper, Spirit O'Wan, Mace) and a Freeze Frame holder (I liked that one... got 2 or 3 m'self). They're fairly consistent.

But I hear you; figures usually top "misc." anyday.

What do you have to do to redeem? Couldn't find anything on starwars.hasbro.com and have not opened them. Is there a way aroun opening them?

They're tabs taped to the cardboard tray which is sealed in the clamshell.

Since I didn't find a thread on this, and I didn't want to start a new thread, does anyone know if the gold coins are "rare?" Not that I'm going to sell them on the secondary market, just for the knowledge. I found an oil slick R2 and lightning Mace with the gold coins, with stickers of the '07 Galactic Hunt on their blisters. Hadn't seen them, and since I passed on those pegwarmers many a month ago, I figured (pun always intended) eh, why not.

They're packed 2 or 3 to a case in the wave 4 revision waves. So they're not too rare but then again we're not exactly swimming in them.

If they were packed in with the saga legends (aside from Dark Trooper), there would be enough to stretch around the globe 9 times.

Anyone have an extra set of coins they'd be looking to unload at all?
