Finally, some news in the Crystal Skeleton Watch!

Dear Indiana Jones Crystal Skeleton Figure Requestor [sic]:
We have received your redemption request for the Indiana Jones Crystal Skeleton collectable figure. We received more requests for this figure than was originally forecast, so we had to place an additional manufacturing order. Due to this situation, we will be unable to ship the figure(s) to you until June 10, 2009.
It then goes on to tell me that I can get a refund if I am not willing to wait so long, and how to do so.
We thank you for your patience and apologize for the delay.
So, it looks like I will at least be getting my crystal skeleton in time for my birthday. I'm not sure if this is more or less annoying than the Captain Rex debacle from last year. In the early months of 2008, Hasbro had an offer that if you sent in a few UPCs and a check, you could get a Captain Rex figure, which was a preview of the then upcoming Cone Wars line. So of course I sent in for one. I waited and waited. I received a card similar to this one. By the time Captain Rex arrived, the Clone Wars line had already launched, so he was no longer a preview figure. He turned out to be a cool figure in the end, but the way they handled it was annoying. Later this year, Hasbro is having another mail away offer. If I take part in it, I hope that it goes more smoothly.

  1. I got one of these and the figure came before the date they quoted. I have still yet to see or hear anything about my GI Joe Doc.
