Just completed a sale with Leebo. Awesome person to deal with and great with communication!

It took almost 3 months of waiting before receiving my Mail-In Boba Fett. Mine arrived in perfect shape!

And so long as you don't run into a stickler over whether or not you can use one of the $10 off gift cards with such a promotion, you could buy 8 figures for $30 before tax! Not too shabby! (are the kids still using that expression these days?  :confused0024: )

How can one get one of those 10$discount cards?

I have stopped beeing a completist and carded Star Wars collector one or two collections before Potf2 ended, and only bought what I liked until now. So there's many of the rehashes that I don't have, and I won't mind getting. One of the major things that discouraged me from collecting back then was the insane amounts of re-releases of a same character, and most importantly the constant change of the packaging. As a down to basics Star Wars fan, this vintage carded line fills a void I was feeling when I gave up on Star Wars, especially since the cards now reestablish the continuity with the original vintage run (1977-85). I am now looking forward on buying as many of the different character in this series. I believe that the packaging itself was the truest and strongest statement that best represented the Star Wars toy franchise. Kenner is probably gone as a company, but they left an unshakable standard which I believe Hasbro has tried to replace, emulate or adapt to the new eras but they never succeeded in matching its greatness, in my opinion. I hope that the new vintage line will run at least long enough to fulfill the wishes of many collectors.

Again, another reason for me not to take chances. Thanks Sinkie. I think I will just cut the UPC's throught the card with the help of scissors and just pretend that I am in an era where vintage or collectible have no dollar meaning yet  :D . Thanks for all for your help, this thread has been helpful and awesome.

Thanks Sinkie.

Last but maybe not the last of all questions: Do I have to submit one filled form per figure, or will Hasbro guess by the amount of the cheque how many boba fetts I want?

I've heard all they really care about is the cheque or money order for the correct amount (and yes, I guess they divide the cheque by 8.99 to figure out how many you counting UPCs). Some have received cases of Fetts this way, 20 or more. Some had claimed Hasbro does not even really care about the UPCs being from the stipulated series as listed on the form but now some are reporting (on that Hasbro has sent back their forms/cheques etc because the UPCs were incorrect. Maybe some employee who's a stickler for rules???

Anyway, I just sent away for 4 more and decided to try it all in one envelope, 20 UPCs (legit) and one cheque for the four total. We'll see!

I didn't take any chances and purchased only figures from the assortments that were listed. So I think I'm good on that side.

By the way, this is a nerdie question: do you know if Hasbro will take UPC symbols that have been peeled off with a cutter or do you know if they want the whole symbol cut out through the card. I just find that in the case of vintage style carded figures, it would be nice to be able to keep the full card as a souvenir, especially if one is not intending to buy duplicate figures for this promotion. Please let me know, thanks!

1- You're almost quoting the redemption form (do you have 1? because all you need to know is written on them)

2- and yes, you're absolutely right. Canadian money sent to US location will do it.

@Jediburrick: Yes you are absolutely right  :) but I had to make sure. Whenever I send a money order to the USA Id expect that the funds would be in US dollars, so I was skeptical but I now I know for the next times. I just had to hear it from you guys first.

BTW, did it really take you 4-6 weeks to get your Boba Fett or did it take less in some cases, or longer?

I need a clarification...

To redeem the Boba Fett, I have to send the five upc's, the cheque and the form to the state of Montana (Bozeman, MT). And the form says to send 8.99cad. So even though I am sending this to the USA, I can still send a canadian money order for the amount of 8.99 in canadian funds for each Boba Fett, correct?

Sorry to bother with my question, I just get easily confused by these details, and I figured who better to help me out than those who already ordered them and got them.

Thanks for your help!

 I dealt with u4ea for the first time ( and I'm new ) and I would do it again. Got some great figures, a great shipping total and an awesome bundle value. Thanks Steve!  :party0007:

Jediburrick is the first guy from the boards that I sold stuff to, and met in person, and wow, such a great person to simply talk to and the kind of guy that's honest with everyone, I can tell. Very easy going and honorable with payment, the transaction went supremely well to the point it was just fun and I'm glad he helped me get started the right way on the forum. Thanks again Jediburrick, you absolutely rock, keep it up... always.

Vintage Kenner (1978-1985) / Re: Finding vintage weapons

Hey all, I will post a short list of vintage 3.75" spare accessories that I would like to sell. So check out my current Sell/Buy post, If you don't see them yet, they'll show up pretty soon when I update my post. Prices won't be too good to be true as these are still scarcer than the figures, and of course the flood of repros out there, but if you take many or even all, we'll work out a good price that you won't regret in the end.  :u:

The fake ones are usually made of very hard plastic, and can be either painted or casted in the same color as the original. The blue and grey ones are usually harder to distinguish because they are casted in a similar color to the original counterparts. I wish I knew a source you could rely to, I doubt that even the most reliable websites can duplicate in image the difference between both repro and original because they look the same...sometimes even in close-up. I know for a fact that repro blue and gery accessories are lighter in comparison to the colors of the originals, but that's because I owned original accessories for a longtime and can easily tell the difference by looking a them in person,and feeling them in my hands. Painted accessories are officially repros, you need not to be an expert for this, Kenner was never cheap with plastic and they produced tons of medium soft plastic casted in different colors, take it from me a longtime vintage collector. Exceptions are accessories that have more than one color such as Amanaman's painted skull on the staff. Still be vigilant for the hard plastic. If you hold in your hand a Klaatu staff per instance and it's not bending that easily ( longer weapons should easily bend ), it would be wise to suspect that it's a repro and not bulge for it if you don't want to be disappointed. Even original weapons like the Stormtrooper's blaster should still bend a bit. If it hardly bends, chances are strong it's a repro.

Another curious fact is that you might come across accessories that are casted and completely bendable plastic or even rubber. I actually received a Plastirama figure as a gift when I was a gift from my family in South America. It was the AT-AT driver( looks and feels just like Kenner's )  but his weapon was made of rubber type plastic. These are still originals, but to the eyes of some collectors they slightly decrease the value of a standard complete loose figure when it comes to buying/selling.
