Strange isn't it... I would guess that there was some sort of glitch during manufacturing that slowed them down a bit maybe?
I can't wait for these figures. Yeah, they may not be the "ultimate" version that we were all giddy for back in February, but they are still pretty cool. Above average sculpts on kick-ass cards. I love it.
Other random thoughts...
* 3PO - Hope he has good articulation or else he'll be pretty silly with the rest
* Lando - elbows, smelbows. Chances are I'd pose him holding the gun anyway. The cape is a little confusing though... he PotJ cape was great!
* Chewie - If I can get a super-articulated Chewie with the RotJ haircut, that'd be fine. We've already got GREAT Chewies for Ep4 and Ep5.
* Fett - still waiting for info on him
* R2 - the mind rolls with anticipation on what gadgets he'll have (if any)
* Stormtrooper - I must keep telling myself "I don't need to army build, I don't need to army build, I don't need to... well, I should get two, one to stand on either side of Vader. And maybe another two to stand guard while Obi-Wan deactivates the tractor beam... and another two to pose with Han as he escapes the Death Star... and DANGIT! I don't need to army build, I don't need to army build..."
