My 6 inch X-Wing Pilot Luke figures came yesterday. At least Hasbro shipped FedEx with all the money the charged me. They were well boxed and pristine. For anyone thinking about buying one of these, the cards are actually different from the other 40th anniversary figures. The are a double card with the clam shell actually sandwiched between layers, not just stuck on the front. Also it's a foil card and Luke has had some paint updates. Looks really good.

Sounds cool! I'd love to see a pic as well.

Regarding the group offer - we're still stuck at finding a US post office box. The other issue  is the "2 per order" factor someone posted above.

I'm not sure if reaching out to Hasbro Toy Shop might work or not, but I'll send an email describing the situation and see whether or not they answer.

I missed that post - thank you!!! Waiting on a reply from Hasbrotoyshop - they have none in stock now but I figured opening a line of conversation might lead to someone there being really helpful - we'll have to wait & see.

I went to Crypticon in Seattle which is a convention for all horror stuff. Walked around and saw this one vendor selling non horror action figures so I took a look and saw 2 of the X-wing lukes for $40 each and bought both for $70 after he gave me a discount. Sick score as I didnt expect any SW stuff there and considering this figure is going over $90. They had other 40th BS figures but no Han Solo or R2D2 but I'm just happy wtih these 2 figures.

Not sure how clear this is but the plastic clamshell isn't just glued and pressed to the card. It's actually in between layers of the card.

Oh, I see. Kind of like how the TFA and R1 5po figure cards are. I was thinking that you were describing a clamshell around the whole figure, kind of like the Gentle Giants 12" original vintage line of figures. :P

No, just slightly higher quality packaging.

Interesting they did the sandwiched bubble for these but none of the rest of the 40th Ann 6" figures.  :confused0024:

Here's the nuts & bolts of the first reply:

Regarding your request to order over the cart limit on an exclusive, you would need to inquire with our corporate office for bulk ordering, which would be B2Bcustserv@hasbro.com.
To also place a bulk order, the item needs to say ‘in stock’ on our website.

I've sent the chaser to B2B.

Ugh.

"This item was a Star Wars Celebration exclusive and the bulk of the product was sold in Orlando during the convention.  We limited all sales to two per customer and we are completely out of stock."

Looks like we're on our own.  :(
