    Oct 6, 2010, 9:33 PM - Anyone get their Rocket Firing Fett yet? #1

    It's been about 5 weeks since I sent away for my Rocket Firing fett(after buying the 5 additional figures). Has anyone else gotten thiers? If so, could you post your pics?? Thanks.

    Darrel DePreist was on a special "collecting" Forcecast podcast about 3 weeks ago. He said that there were lots of reports of damaged packages and figures caused by the mail carriers . So, they were working on a repackage that was stronger but not expense, causing a bit of delay....

    I mailed them separately but i still havens received them either . I bought the proofs off ebay for 7.00 a set...much cheaper than buying the terrible looking figures

    Basically, it's the figures with the Boba sticker on them. AFAIK, they are the legacy figures from the movies (not the cool Clone Wars figures). Target here in VA generally has a better price on them than places like Walmart or K-Mart. Based on what I see, you have until 3/31/11 to send off for it. Although I'm not sure I would wait that long.

    PS- Yes, I must admit to collecting toys at 35.

    Here's a PDF of the form. It lists which action figures qualify for the UPC

    Oh and don't let Hasbro fool you. It's not just the mail carrier that has had issues with damaging the figures. I've had figures replaced because they were absolutely mangled in the box and the box itself was fine (eg. it was damaged either before or as it was packed). They've been having these types of issues for sometime and there were some high-end collectors that got really up in arms with them over their lack of quality control. Even their mail order Bobas were coming in pretty curb stomped. I recently had an order replaced because I had bought some figures for my nephew and they looked like someone had played kickball with them and then given them to Stewie for a few days. However, know that Hasbro has a track record here recently of making good on these replacements.

    I was lucky because my buddy picked me one up at C5. It was just in a white thin box (fairly sturdy though). Not sure how he got one there but he did.

    You would think that a toy company would realize that this forum would be the perfect place to market stuff like that. I guess it's too close to a good idea. I know for sure though that they'd likely sell out of them here.

    Some of them have been reported as having been punched on arrival as are the boxes they send to stores. It seems to be random. I order a full set a month or so ago and when I got it from Hasbro, they were punched.
