    Awesome, thanks Murphquake! Just took advantage of it to add one to my minifig collection.

    Thanks, didn't get my order in before double points expired but since by order was only slightly over $100 I would much rather have this than the $5 in VIP points. BTW, does not have to be star wars stuff you purchase, I just bought some train tracks, PF accys, a couple Easter poly bags and no star wars and the code still worked.

    any news if this will be uk too? I certainly hope so.
  • noblebricknoblebrick Member Posts: 19
    I didn't actually see the promo code stated, so here it is: “FRA1". If I had any limited edition ones, that I was planning on selling, I would do so now.
  • SupersympaSupersympa SwedenMember Posts: 534
    looks like only US promo....

    Enter FRA2 if you are a resident of Canada.

    Thanks a bunch Murphquake,i made an order on the morning of the 15th, for my DS.2 days later i hear about this offer and called LEGO, the lady on the phone was more than helpfull, and added a ARF to my order from 3 days ago. Lego Customer Sevice is the best.
  • richoricho Member Posts: 3,830
    shame this is only US & Canada, but just checking ebay, the prices on these are drifting down, with plenty available for circa £18 buy it now, including free shipping to the UK. Much more realistic pricing!
  • murphquakemurphquake Member Posts: 651
    @Jonn420 I just did the same!
    @Huw thanks for the s/o!
  • murphquakemurphquake Member Posts: 651
    My first one is here =-) Interesting that the unit & ext. price and subtotal on the invoice is $19.98! Really glad I called and have another that should be arriving in a day or two with my next order. I assembled the little guy in the bag and he looks awesome, but will remain in there until he's needed for the war effort against the shadow separatists =-D
  • weinnerweinner Banned Posts: 148
    Mine will be here tomorrow, I can't wait.
  • BrickDancerBrickDancer Dunes of TatooineMember Posts: 3,639
    I made 3 separate orders just so I could get 3 nice Shadow ARF's. 1 here 2 to go.
  • murphquakemurphquake Member Posts: 651
    @BrickDancer I've got too many jobs but 2 or 3 checks will be here this week and each will get an order... actually the main gig I did a day of overtime that will cover all 3 orders so maybe 4 ;-o

    @weinner I think you'll be quite pleased, I'm really smitten with mine... even if he has the same voice as all the other clones =-D
  • BrickDancerBrickDancer Dunes of TatooineMember Posts: 3,639
    ^Are they still available? I figured they would have ran out by now.
  • jadedancjadedanc USAMember Posts: 1,303
    My order shipped on the 24th and they say there is one in the order.... we shall see when it arrives :)

    I just made a purchase yesterday afternoon and got one, so I think still in stock.
  • scratchdeskscratchdesk Member Posts: 155
    Mine arrived today.
  • murphquakemurphquake Member Posts: 651
    @ BrickDancer supposed to be on until the 31st, no? make sure to put the code FRA1 (or FRA2 if you moved to Canada =-)

    I'm getting paid in the morning and making another order... and then another when my other check comes... and if i ever go get the one in Far Rockaway that will be 3.... Hurt my paw at work and will be out until next weekend at least so more lego will be very welcome!

    My 2nd one came also and it had the price as 34 cents? quite amusing
  • ZonZon Member Posts: 214
    Sad that I missed this. I put in an order totaling $99.97 on March 13. Had I known, I would have waited and skipped the double VIP. :(

  • lilmonster777lilmonster777 Member Posts: 53
    thx just picked one up :)
  • weinnerweinner Banned Posts: 148
    Mine came today,yay! He's pretty neat.
  • BrickDancerBrickDancer Dunes of TatooineMember Posts: 3,639
    Yay my 2nd one came today. Waiting on the 3rd now =)
  • CoolsplashCoolsplash Member Posts: 935
    Any chance to get one of these? I missed out :(

    This is pretty curious to me, I got a couple of ARF troopers from Lego.com during the last promotion that offered them and oddly, one had a $9.99 price sticker on it. I can't figure out why?

    Is Lego selling these somewhere for $9.99? or were they going to?

    Any thoughts are appreciated.

    Oh I hope so :)
  • fyrmedhattfyrmedhatt Member Posts: 128
    Lego does give a price to certain promotional sets, I think I remember last years christmas exclusives having the $10 price on them as well.

    One has to ask the question of how many they even have available to sell, it doesn't seem that there are that many left, given that they've been unavailable in Europe for almost a year.

    Just got off the phone, ordered 4 of them at $9.99 each +tax&post

    Hope this doesn't blow up their phone lines...
  • cynthilinacynthilina Member Posts: 188
    Damn I tried to get them to send me some and I was told I needed to spend 99 and then its one per order. She did say they have allot left so they may be a VIP special for "May the fourth be with you"
  • jadeirenejadeirene US, CaliforniaMember Posts: 475
    In the fine print is says that the approximate value of the minifigure is $3.99. Go figure.

    I tried to order more too, they blew me off as well. If you got any you're lucky.
  • weinnerweinner Banned Posts: 148
    Not cool
  • LegoFanTexasLegoFanTexas TexasMember Posts: 8,409
    Am I the only nut here who thinks paying $10 for a minifig is nuts? :)

    For $3.99, I'd think about it, for $10, you're crazy!

    If they are a promo, that would be nice. :)
  • cynthilinacynthilina Member Posts: 188
    They are a promo right now for purchases over $99
  • BrickDancerBrickDancer Dunes of TatooineMember Posts: 3,639
    ^^But if you can turn around and sell it for $25, wouldn't you want it too?
  • andheandhe UKMember Posts: 3,704
    If you tried to buy 11, would they then sell them, and give you an extra one for free? :s
  • LegoFanTexasLegoFanTexas TexasMember Posts: 8,409

    $25 is even more crazy...

    I get that the chrome C-3PO that was random in the boxes and 1 of 10,000 has some value ($250 is just nuts however...), but this is not limited and it isn't even that "special", at least as far as I can tell.

    It is screaming "hey, give me a year, I'll be included in some cheap battlepack soon!"

    Of course that's just my opinion and I could be wrong... :)
  • sidersddsidersdd USAMember Posts: 2,432
    ^ It may be crazy to you, but it's rare enough to be worth $20-$25 to some people - just like the white Boba Fett.

    Yea, I know... hey, many people would call me crazy for what I spend money on, so it's all good... :)

    I was just offering my opinion... :)
  • scratchdeskscratchdesk Member Posts: 155
    Well I got my shipping notification today, so they are on their way. Guess it's ok for $10. More than I care to pay usually but unique enough that I'll let it slide this time.
  • weinnerweinner Banned Posts: 148
    Legofantexes is cheap.
  • ZonZon Member Posts: 214
    Follow-up to my post from March 28 above - I emailed Lego shortly after posting that expressed my sadness about missing that particular promotion. They were awesome enough to send me one for FREE!

    No complaints about that kind of customer service!

  • RennyRenny USAMember Posts: 1,145
    That's awesome @Zon. In an age were I can't even get my local Burger King to get my order right ONE time, it's great to hear a company treat their customers so well.
  • The_Brick_BuilderThe_Brick_Builder Member Posts: 658
    Wow awesome story Zon. Proof that TLG has the best customer service.
