No, they were never released.
The early salesman samples popped up on eBay and a few Asian stores took pre-orders only to have them cancelled a few months later. These 3 cups (and the rumored next wave of Vader, Greedo, Luke) are just another one of those mystery items that dissapeared into the night (like CD-ROM Bespn Dinner Vader).
It's a shame really - I would love for them to do three Cups from each movie....
Obi-Wan Kenobi (young)
Obi-Wan Kenobi (old)
Luke Skywalker (Snowspeeder Pilot)
Leia as Jabba's Slave
Luke Skywalker (Jedi Knight)
A collection of 18 cups like that would have seriously rocked. I know a lot of people don't like these because of the re-packed figures but I think it's better to look at these as cups w/a bonus figure 'cause imagine how many people would be upset if the figure was new in some way (new paint-op, new sculpt, etc...)?
