    Does anyone know long long it is going to take this bad boy to get to mailboxes around the country?

    I would guess 4-6 weeks, which is the usual for promo stuff, although since this was online, it might be less...

    Yeah, the 5000 went pretty quickily, probably from SOME people who got multiples by "beating the system". :mad:

    well, they gave you a free one for every unique email you give them, so I don't think it's cheating the system if you read the rules of the giveaway ;)

    I highly doubt that it will be a few weeks before the TIEs reach our mailboxes. I doubt that Lego is in a hurry to get a free product out. You know they'll send them out when they feel like it.

    from my site:

    Dave: "Ik heb via een Lego StarWars fansite vernomen dat er een mini T0EI gratis te krijgen is via www.starwars.com.
    Helaas kwam ik er achter dat het alleen voor de US geld. Dus kan ik deze set nooit krijgen , want hij zal niet in de winkel worden verkocht.
    Dit vind ik heel jammer, en mijn vraag is, wordt de mini TIE ooit nog in Europa (Nederland verkrijgbaar?
    Bij voorbaat dank."

    "I found out via a Lego StarWars site that you can get a free Lego StarWars mini TIE at, www.starwars.com. to bad I found out that the offer was only available to US residents, so my question is, will this set ever be available at retail in Europe (Holland) ?"

    LEGO: "Als u de TIE bomber bedoeld, dan kan u de 4 figuurtjes (4484, 4485, 4486, 4487) die nodig zijn om deze te bouwen, normaal gezien bestellen bij ons vanaf januari 2003
    Indien u de TIE Fighter bedoeld, die zou in principe te koop moeten zijn vanaf januari 2003"

    "If you mean the TIE bomber, you can order the 4 sets who are needed to build this vehicle(4484, 4485, 4486, 4487), order from us starting januari 2003
    If you mean the TIE fighter, it too should be available starting januari 2003."

    Thanks to dave for sharing!

    Apparently they gave away more last night, but they went fast. maybe they checked how many will be sent and saw they had a few remaining.

    Yeah, it's real nice if some people get 5 for themselves so some people don't end up getting any.

    That note is probably referring to the Darth Vader's tie that comes in a MINI set.

    no, becouse Vaders TIE is part of the normal set, and it said about the EXCLUSIVE MINI TIE

    No. And probably not for a long time. Free stuff takes time to get.

    Got mine today. The box appeared to have been used as a postal frisbee for a dozen drunken soccer hooligans, but everything inside was ok. Came with a fun little fold-out poster showing the mini At-St's fighting some snow speeders on Hoth...a couple of At-At's in the background as well.

    I still don't have mine, but Rebelscum is getting reports of folks getting them...

    LEGO Mini-Tie Arrives

    "The recent LEGO Mini-Tie Fighter Starwars.com and LEGO gave away started showing up in mailboxes today. In addition to the set, there is also a mini-poster depicting a Hoth scene, showing Snowspeeder and AT-STs and a sneak preview of a mini AT-AT."

    And here is a pic of the package:

    Yeah but it was free! Can't complain about that. :)

    This was brilliant marketing by Lego. Now i'm gonna buy all of the mini sets.

    Well, I finally got mine today! :D

    The box looked like it had been through hell and back, but when I opened it up everything was there and in perfect shape. I'm not a big fan of the Lego sets, but this really is a neat little thing.
