Beth might be interested in this post from "TowerRecords.com" over on the AA boards:
"Currently we are expecting our Super Skrull / Thing
2 Pack to arrive in stores and online mid-August. We are trying to express a limited number of them to offer at our Tower booth at the San Diego Comic Con in July. We will also have a limited amount of our exclusive LOTR Sauron Mini-Mate
available at the booth as well.
We will make it available on the 25th of this month to coincide with the DVD release. Online will only be able to offer the figure at $2.99 with purchase of the DVD or $6.99 as a single item.
We will be offering the figure FREE
on the first day of the DVD release at our brick 'n mortar stores across the country. Our apologies for not being able to offer the same online. After that, you can purchase the figure for $6.99 or with the DVD for $2.99 while supplies last.
Pre-Orders for figures is something that I continually push for but currently, we will not be doing pre-orders for the LOTR Sauron Mini-Mate figure online. Sorry. It will be made for purchase online on the 25th and there are no limits."
Good deal on that Sauron Minimate, and I can't wait for August to get that Super Skrull & Thing 2-pack.
