« on: May 07, 2007, 07:08:06 PM »

I have a little over a thousand of these. I keep them because I know if hasbro ever decided to redeem them (they probably wont) but if they do I will be very upset if I kept them all this time and then threw them away. They dont take up that much space anyways so I may as well keep them.

There will come a time when your training ends. There will come a day when you have learned all the lessons, when all my knowledge of the dark side will be yours. On that day you will challenge me for the title of Master, and only one of us will survive the encounter.

I cut all mine out one evening so they barley take up any room at all.

Basically they were a little box you would cut out around the UPC code. It would say like 10 Jedi Master Points for a figure, on up to 50, I think for a bigger ship. In the beginning they weren't good for anything, but people cut them out and saved them anyways hoping that someday Hasbro would allow us to use them. Then they phased them out, but people still had tons of them and complained loud enough that Hasbro ran some auctions for a few months, but everything went so dag-gum high that people with only a couple of hundred points didn't have a chance

That Jedi Master points scam was perhaps the biggest crap stain since Hasbro took over the line! He with the most points shouldn't win, all that have the points should have been able to redeem them. What a good idea a VOTC Stormie would have been for this? What do I know, I'm just a collector!   :)

Yeah I have about 2000 points stashed away. The shaffel Hasbro did just plain sucked, and I held on to the points all these years. ??? I was convinced that Hasbro would do something extra special down the road for the people who held onto their points... I guess I was a lil off. YOU STILL HAVE TIME TO REDEEM YOURSELF HASBRO!

Probly only have about 200 all together, so couldn't get much even if I wanted to.

I've never counted how many points we have, but it must be a ton. I still have all of the cardbacks during that era. Why I hold onto them, I still can;t figure out.

Yeah, join the club. I think mine are going out in the trash with my next cleaning.


Yeah, right... I say that every time.

Same boat. Every time I go to the bins, I look at them and think why? It's the classic pack rat logic: as soon as I throw them out, they'll launch a redemption contest...

I've kept the card backs, the bubbles, everything from the stuff I've opended since SAGA 2002-Present. I don't know why, but it helps keep my loose stuff organized when moving!

I used to keep all the cardbacks from my loose figures but about 2 months ago I threw them all out but I cut out the jedi master points and kept them because if I threw them out then they would finally be worth something

Just an FYI for anyone out there that does still have these, get ready to use them. I say that because I finally got up enough courage to throw mine away... so I expect an announcement from Hasbro next week at some point that these things will be like money starting soon...  ::)

While I was digging through the archives doing the Questions to Hasbro Index thread, I found this question:

The Jedi Master Points auction still left quite a few collectors empty handed.  Is there another project to look forward to for turning in our thousands of Jedi Master Points?
Excellent question and one that we need a little more info on.  Did collectors toss out Jedi Master Points after the auction, or keep them?   We don't want to upset those collectors who thought that there would never be a use for them and tossed them away.  Can you dig a little deeper for us on this by questioning your readers on what they did with their points?

Now, I realize that this question is more than a year old, but I realized that we never did any kind of "real" follow up on it. So I'm going to add a poll to this thread, and collect some data for a while, and then hopefully ask a follow up question in a few weeks.

EDIT - couldn't add the poll to an existing thread so I had to make a new one - cast your vote here
