That makes sense.  Its getting to the point where I feel I need to check on SW stuff hourly to avoid missing out.   ::)  Hopefully I can snag one in store.

I woke up and ordered one this morning at about 7:45am EST with no problems, thankfully.

I saw JTA put up a front page post about it about 8 minutes later and I'm sure that was the nail in the coffin. I kinda wish they wouldn't do stuff like that.

I wish we could get some definitive answer on if these are completely dunzo or if they plan to keep releasing the odd character here and there like Proto Boba.

Fett went up for sale at 3:15am ET. C-3PO (red arm) and R2 have hit stores as well.

.

Nabbed a pair over lunch at the Ridgedale store.  Didn't see any sign of Threepio or R2 yet, so I'm sure they are holding for for the mid May release.  I did get the cool free Fett pin though.

Cool stuff! I know 3PO is the Ep 7 version, but am curious if R2 is exactly the same as the previous con exclusive release. Don't see why it wouldn't be, his look never changes anyway.

I read somewhere that they will be available on the 15th at Disney Stores, so I'm guessing 2am tonight on the site.   ::)
