Was just curious if anyone has received all three of the figurines that were supposed to come with the premium subscription of R2D2? All I have received is the Darth Vader figure. I finished the model back in April and still haven't received the C3PO or R2D2 Figures.

Just got an email today saying the R2D2 figurine has been shipped. Too weird. By the way I have called c/s many time about this. Never have information for me though.

I purchased the full kit and only got the R2D2 usb thumb drive, what's up with that? No other figurines were sent?

The figures only came with the premium subscription.

Premium Full Kit: $1599.

Your Premium Full Kit includes these high quality collectibles: Darth Vader, C-3PO and R2-D2 figurines

Free gifts with the standard option: Build your own R2-D2 binder and Exclusive R2-D2 USB Stick.

The page info you posted does indeed say the figures only come with the Premium full kit.
The standard full kit has the binders and R2 USB stick only.

If your own order states Premium full kit, then you need to contact C/S and enquire about the missing figures.
I'm sure they will sort it for you.

Model Space need to correct the information on the web page for the Build R2-D2 subscription. A 25 month subscription costs £39.96 per month. As cover price for each issue is actually £8.99, subscribers are paying £1 extra per issue for their 100 issue subscription. So the 'free gifts' mentioned on the subscription page (binder, USB stick and three figures) are not actually free. Subscribers are paying £100 for these 'free' items.

Ok. The discrepancy has been figured out. The magazines were printed 4-5 years ago, and in the interim there was a small (£1) price increase. It’s not a matter of misleading or false advertising. R2 is long gone from the news stands, and is ONLY available either as a full kit, or subscription via the website.

Obviously, it’s impractical to print new magazines, so the pricing you’re seeing on the webstore is accurate, and DeAgostini isn’t pulling a fast one.

I hope this clears things up for you.
