I just don't believe anyone would know anything about the ratios.  Its never happened before

Like the Chase figures, nothing is ever known until they hit the street

Exactly, we will find what the ratio is and what the chase figures are all in time. Just waiting hurts.  :-\

It doesn't really make sense for the Stormie to be a 1/12 ratio either.  With Vader it would.  But I guess stranger things have happenned.

I would think that the stormie will be the same ratio as the sandtrooper was.  These guys seem to have a really good handle on how to pack things and what should be in cases.  From a traditional, OT standpoint they've pretty much rocked all along.  For them to make the error of one per case would be a pretty darn big surprise.  People would be nuts. 

Have to admit, seeing these I'm really tempted to order a box :-X

Thats what I was thinking too, the Sandies were 3 per box, so the Stormies
should be too. Maybe someone was trying to get people hyped up and neverous
about the Stormies availability.

We have a master case coming, can`t wait to get the shipping notification  ;D
Then we get a case of beer and start the opening of 'da bricks'

Assortment for Star Wars Series 2

Sandtrooper [4:12]
Han Solo [3:12]
Cantina Band Member [2:12]
Obi-Wan Kenobi [1:12]
Greedo [1:12]
Tusken Raider [1:12]

Sandtrooper (white pauldron) [4/48] meaning that in 1 box you would have 4 white pauldrons and 0 orange.

hope that helps.

I got mine with a set, never got a box of series 2, so I hope they were four
and the Stormies at 4 per box would rock!
Its gonna be a long month waiting for these to come out.... >:(

It does suck!  >:(
I figured with them being shown recently, they were just about done with them.
I was hoping to have them shipped with RAH Vader to save on some shipping too.
Oh well, as long as I get them at some point, I guess I can wait some more.

Ever get an itch you just have to scratch?  I did

I really wanted that piece and it saves me from the moral dilemma of having to open it and then having a useless card around. 

Due apologies if that was you with the first bid Adam, but two other guys beat you out as well, so I don't feel quite as guilty :-[

Nice one Brent.  Is that your first carded opener so far?  I've only gotten one opener myself (the Droids R2), so I'm woefully behind on those.  But I sure as **** ain't opening any of my carded ones though!  ;)

I don't mind the delay on Series 4 personally, since I still haven't grabbed the chases from last time.  So it gives me a little more time to catch up, not to mention the whole initial ROTS run of regular figures has tapped my collecting budget a bit too.  So I'm fine with a little more recovery time here...

I still haven't opened my R2 yet...I haven't been looking real hard for a Fett but I will get one eventually. 

As far as the delay...not a huge deal but as others have said, more time to save :P

I've been watching the carded auctions every once in a while looking for a "bargain". 

I don't have any yet, but eventually I'd like a carded set and a loose set for the "new" ones - Holo Leia, Droids R2, Droids Fett.  I can pass on an opener Luke, Fett, and Sandy since those are so close to the regular figures.

As for the Series 4 delay -  :(

Patience I guess...

Nice one Brent.  8)

The only carded loose ones I have thus far is Luke blonde hair and Holo Leia.

If I can wait for my 400% Boba to arrive, I can wait a bit longer for series 4.  :)
