View Full Version : Sent off for my Sneak Preview Figure!

02-10-2008, 04:08 PM
I found the Pit Droids yesterday with the offer for the Sneak Preview Rex. I sent it out today, so we'll see if it ships in 6-8 weeks like they say.

BTW I went through my UPCs and it looks like I'll be able to get alot of these. I have enough UPCs that I can easly get 50 or more (not that I will but I'll definitly have alot to get rid of). The offer is good till the end of the year so I order as many as I can. At least I finally get rid of some of these UPCs:yes:

How many UPC's are required per figure?

02-10-2008, 09:58 PM
4 + 6.99 for shipping:rolleyes:

02-10-2008, 10:31 PM
I have additional UPC's if any one needs them. PM me for them.

03-11-2008, 07:40 PM
I too have a bunch of UPCs up for grabs, I'm not using them....

03-11-2008, 08:17 PM
I also have some available for anyone who needs them.

sent for 3 of them in the beginning of March. some of the other websites are reporting that people's checks have already been cashed. I wonder if this figure will arrive before the 7/26 lauch of the Clone Wars line.

I remember the day, during vintage times when sending in upc's really did get you something for nothing.

$6.99 for shipping is ridiculous and they could have just saved the headache of mailing this to individual homes and put the damn thing out on the pegs. Why bother anymore really, to do mail aways?

04-05-2008, 12:14 PM
I agree. What happened to the days of actually getting a "free" figure with UPCs and a modest shipping charge? The $6.99 is obviously the "real cost" and the UPCs are thrown in to ensure that four other purchases are made as well.

In any case, I've sent in three orders, one a couple weeks ago and two more yesterday. I'll get the figures, but unlike the cool feeling we got as kids by getting a "free" thing for UPCs, the feeling of being raped to get these will never go away.

Nowhere on the package does it say it's free, though, just that you can get this variant early.

Its probably to pay for the fols out diarama packaging.

By law, if they say it's shipping and handling charges, then that's what it must go to. The box for VTSC Lucas Stormtrooper suggest they're getting bolder and bolder with mailers though, that and the TAC coin set boxes were fairly substantial - no more little boxes with baggied figures within. That said, $7 is totally ridiculous, this is a promotional item, they could eat 100% of the shipping costs and write it off, but at the very least they could have dropped it to a more reasonable $3 or $4. Then again, USPS prices have gone sky high lately, so it's not THAT surprising either.

I suspect we'll see these in May or June.

I mailed mine today, not really because I HAVE TO HAVE THIS FIGURE, more that I could use my UPCs for something. There should be a Constitutional Ammendment that requires:

a) French bread loaves to be $.99
b) boxes of cereal at $2.50 or less
c) SW figure S&H at $3.99 or less

My check was cashed on Wednesday. As for as the mail aways are concerned, Hasbro has a good track record delivering them to me in a timely fashion so hopefully I'll be among the first of SSG to get them.

Dang, mine just cleared too, that's fast turnaround. We'll see how it goes, I'm not expecting it any time soon though.

Mine cleared a few days ago, but i just got the things to actually use the UPC codes for something besides mixing paint on! Not because i like this line or even have to get into it...I ordered four of them before i knew they were animated...*Grumbles to myself* Anyhow...how about them Yankees?:ninja:

I sent mine off on April 2nd, and I only did it to be a part of the mailaway.

Anyone still needing certificates and/or UPCs, PM me. I have a few left and I don't just want to throw them away.

Okay, I have no more UPCs left as of this morning (all are spoken for now). However I still have several REX certificates. If you need one, send me a self addressed stamped envelope and I'll get it right back out to you. (PM me for my shipping address)

I still have UPCs and Rex Certificates. PM me if you'd like some of them.
