I scored two of these today. They let me ring up separate transactions. I would have gotten more, but the selection of Star Wars sets in the $11.99 price range was pretty limited.

Well I have 2, one mailed from Spain and one from TRU.
I am trying to decide if I should just keep those or hope my
TRU re-stocks(very, very slim odds) and buy 5, get 1 free
for $15 to get a small army of them.

Apparantly this is a one time deal.
They got one shipment and aren't expecting any more.
Looks like I won't be getting an army :(

thank god I was travelling to quebec for march break, I picked up a few at Williston just south of Burlington VT near the quebec border on Tuesday. Just to be on the safe side, I made separate purchases of battle packs to get multiple chrome stormies... I volunteered my wife and sister in law. I did not try to buy more than 1 myself and I did not try to buy them without buying $11.99 of star wars lego. After paying the $1 premium on the battlepacks and a $2 premium on last years clone battlepack, you sort of end up paying $1-$2 for the $2.99 chrome stormies anyways, so they were not exactly free! I would prefer to just have bought them alone.

i think it's taken out of the price of the other sets when you try to return the items minus the premium. if you bought a battlepack and got a chrometrooper, and then returned the bp, you'd get 11.99 - 2.99 back as a refund.

Last year with the Vader promo at TRU you had to return both if you wanted to return the set.
Set and Vader - or nothing.

How convenient that I read the blog post on my Road Trip to US of A. I had been meaning to pick up a rebel trooper BP anyway, so............... :D

I went today to get a Republic Swamp Speeder, and was disappointed to hear that the first day the Chromies were released, someone went to the store and bought them all. :'(

RfAurora, sorry to hear what happened at your local TRU. I just picked up two at my local TRU. When the promo ends this weekend, I'll return on Sunday and see if I can purchase more. I want everyone to have a fair chance to purchase before I buy more for me and the kids.

My wife and I had our first baby last weekend, and with all the excitement in our home this week, I didn't get online and find out about the promo until Thursday night. On Friday while picking up baby supplies, I checked 3 local TRUs and called 2 others that were further away - every single one of them was sold out. Then I look at eBay and see someone from my area (Salt Lake City) selling one for about $32.00 . Does he have a ton? Who knows, but it still ticks me off a little - I only wanted one and there's none left in the whole state of Utah after 6 days? >:(

For those still looking, don't give up! I went in to TRU on a whim this morning and asked about the chromie, and the service rep (very nice lady, for once) let me know they still had a few left. One rebel pack later and I was able to get one.

This particular store was adamant about not selling them individually (they mentioned it without me even asking), so there's still hope that not every TRU's been hit by your local eBay-obsessed nimrod.

I have a feeling that my local one might be one of the less-slammed stores. Of course, there's also the chance that people from Lucasfilm came and raided the store (it's happened in the past), so it's possible that everything might be gone. I would like to check again soon. I'm satisfied with my 2, but if I can get more with some battlepacks, I would feel great. :)

The lego stores here in MD still have lots of the magnets, I've heard about the quality differences, but you can still just buy em. Had my son been more adamant about getting one, I would have made the trip to TRU last sunday, but he wasnt all that interested, and neither was I.

Tyrant, I agree with you on a few points, and I can't help but laugh at others. But we're not taking ANOTHER thread in this direction. Try to refrain from ranting every time you see someone express their displeasure about resellers/scalpers/"eBay-obsessed nimrods". This is a forum for fans and hobbyists - not the people trying to make a profit off them. This is a standard complaint and you're wasting your time trying to defend everyone's favorite scapegoat.
