It appears that coupon codes aren't working during this promo. I've been trying to use of the brickmaster codes (over $20) and no luck so far.

Maybe someone else has had better luck...

Oh, so I'm not the only one who had trouble with a coupon, huh? I placed an order and used one of my Brickmaster coupon codes, and there was no price change, but I called Shop at Home and spoke to one of their people, who said she'd apply the discount for me. Those of you with the same issue might want to give them a call.

So do you get another poster if you put another order in? Or is it a one poster per household kind of thing.

It's one poster per order. I did place two different orders to the same name and address and there was a poster with each order.

If you want to let Lego know about your disappointment with Lego and the various exclusives they run, why don't you do what I did and write to the Lego CEO? (I found his name and office address via Google)

I didn't get a personal reply, but they did write back to me. The more people that actually do this, the more evidence they'll have to change their marketing strategies in the future.

Yeah... and I ordered 3 Clone Walker Battle Packs once, and then 5 more later.... and, without contacting me or anything, reduced the amount in the second order to 2 several days later (I will honestly say I wasn't trying to exceed my limit, in a frenzy of buying I'd ordered 3 and before they even arrived ordered the 5 more).

Not taking a chance, I asked my mom to order some stuff for me so that I could make sure to get two.

On the other hand, I didn't see where it placed any sort of a limit, either.

Hope everyone got theirs early! Posters are now all gone

We apologize but due to the high demand of the limited edition LEGO® Star Wars™ Poster we are now out of stock. Your order will still automatically enter you in a chance to win a first-edition Ultimate Collector's Millennium Falcon™.

No, not all Falcons have the COA. Only the "first edition" ones had it, but it is unclear how many were in the first edition. I got mine in July 2008 and it didn't have the certificate. Besides, the S@H entry for 10179 doesn't mention the certificates any more.

PM Me if interested.

Thanks

Other 2 may be pending

I'd have loved the poster but the fact that it's folded paper just didn't do it for me. No way my wife would let me stick it up and no way I'd be able to keep it flat. Giant laminated poster? I'm in. Fingers crossed for the twentieth anniversary. I would like a high res jpeg of the poster though if anyone can oblige.

So what is the size of the poster?

Also, in regards to the numbered COA for the falcon, I preordered mine when it was first announced and received a number in the 10,000s so it was very 'un'limited.

Joxer,
I thought someone on here had mentioned in another thread that numbering was in the +10,000's so thanks for the confirmation. Because of my completionist ways (now just OT sets), I am not planning to open mine and am formally requesting that all other Falcon owners take the time to at least get out their certificates so as to deduce my number. ;)
