Was surprised to see Hasbro cashed my 6.99 check already.

I haven't seen any of the stickers on figures yet. I like this mail-away, but then, I like almost all these "FREE" * mail-aways.

Still seeking stickers. So, seen? Sorry... :sad:

I've not seen a single sticker on any of the figures in our area. I guess that means that we are still sitting on CRAP CRAP CRAP!!!!

They're showing up on the currently-shipping wave 9, which includes Ponda Baba, Bastila Shan, and the Rebel Trooper (Echo Base Battle Gear). Mixed in is some of wave 8 (which has yet to ship in its own cases), which includes the Return and Revenge of the Jedi repacks.

All I know is they(Hasbro) cashed my check before the new form mandates...so we'll see.

I finally saw two figures with mail away stickers, and I bought the one figure I didn't yet have: Death Star Escape Luke (not the best of figures, but better than a repeat of Jedi Luke in Chains). There will be a letter with a completed form, 5 POPs, a check, and a Gregory-Peck-as-Atticus-Finch stamp in the mail tomorrow. :pleased:

The first one I mailed off shows its check is now cashed; the second was mailed about 3 days later, but not cashed yet.

I'll probably send off for mine this week. I ordered a case of wave 9 from HTS and got it a couple weeks ago. I'll de-POP the non-"Revenge" card figures and send in my cheques. Whoop-de-doo. LOL

I sent in one form before the new & strict standards went into effect and already received the figure back. My plan was to send of for a few more over the next few weeks to have a couple for my kids, but I haven't seen a single stickered (or for that matter new) figure in these parts for a very long time. Does anyone have two or three of the forms they could stand to part with?

It's weird that people are already receiving the new mail-away Fett and I have yet to even see a single new figure with the special-offer sticker in any store within a 40 miles radius of my house.

I've had one sighting of wave 7 (RFT, Han Bespin, Bom Vimdin, etc.) back during the first weekend of August and not a single sighting of new figures since then. The pegs are nearly empty in most stores I go to, there's just no product to fill them with.

I haven't seen new stock for months. We're still staring at pegs filled with clones and sandtroopers. If they hadn't allowed the printed form I doubt I would have ever seen this figure.

same story here. my walmarts are clogged with wave 5 and 6 pegwarmers, and the target only has 4-lom, sandtroopers, clones, and rebel troopers, and r2d2. No figures with stickers!! glad i had a printed form before they changed the rules.

I mailed two different offers out about 3-5 days apart, and I got #1 today. I like the extra cardboard part inside the mailer box, which made for less smooshing. The bottom left corner of the card was a little dinged. I didn't realize that this wouldn't be an all-white figure; haven't opened it yet (will see if #2 is a better carded one first). And Nom Anor looks awesome on the "collect these other figures" part; Aayla looks terrible.

I received my two today, and both mint. Very cool figure

I finally got a figure with the new Boba Fett sticker - a second stormtrooper with the good helmet (on a ROTJ card, no less). I'll be sending off for it soon.

Is this figure going to be any different than the one that was in the TAC line?

Edit: Never mind. I see a picture of it now and see that it is indeed different.

My second one arrived today. What is it with the bottom left corner on these? The rest of the card is in great shape; I'll have to study and decide which one will be opened.

I FINALLY sent away for one of them. I guess the other one will be mailed out in a week or so.

Does anyone have any extras they'd be looking to sell?

I've got all the UPCs and entry forms for a few more, but not any extra figures.

Can you still send away for them? If so, would you like to make a deal for the materials? :)

I only finally got mine in the mail the other day. The hose on the right arm split apart shortly after opening the figure . . . apart from that, it's a really cool piece.

I never sent away for my second one. LOL I guess I'll do that now.

After Bikerscout asked me for an extra mail-in form, I realized I should rethink not getting this figure, and changed my mind (I had 2 at hand, turned out he was able to get another one without me tho). Unfortunately, in trying to keep my place clear of packaging clutter, I had been tossing out all the UPCs with them, and only had a few basic figures from which to choose. I ended up using 2 of the Discover the Force in 3D walmart UPCs, a Vintage UPC, a Clone Wars UPC, and a Movie Heroes UPC - so, basically, EVERYTHING! :D I also felt these might violate the post office's "rigid items in envelope" rule so I included 20 extra cents in case it violated that - it gave me a chance to get rid of the last 2 old 32 cent stamps and one of the annoying 1 cent stamps I bought last month when postage went up. I wrote very slowly to be as clear as possible, I have poor handwriting, but I found it hard to read anyway because the background image of the figure was too dark over the form part.

I think the reason I ended up changing my mind on this figure was from just recently reading the chapter in Making of ESB about how the white Fett came together. So that's $7 I'm not getting back. :p
