Using the retail code alone doesn't entitle you to the Connie, iirc. Because if it did, someone who didn't pre-order could just buy a box in a store someday that was left over from pre-orders, redeem the code, and have a Connie, even though they didn't preorder.
That would be curious, if someone used a Beta code from 1 retailer (I've heard they've giving them away so Beta access wasn't really a bonus) and purchased from another it probably wouldn't work.
