I haven't really kept up with this series, which species is Krayt? Is that the Chagrian?

No he's really A'sharad Hett (the half Tusken/Half Human Jedi)  from the prequel era who lived that long to see this time.

Ruin for everybody why dontcha.  :P

Sorry, I thought by now this was common knowledge. It's been out for awhile and posted here and everywhere else. Hey at least if you haven't read the story, you can go back and find out how it all happened.

Sorry Sal I was just kiddin'
Damn I was wrong on the M&M stormies that I'd predicted earlier in the thread, I thought it'd be good tie in for the FU.  But glad I was wrong this far out ways what I'd expected ESPECIALLY LOVIN' DARTH SQUIDY.  Thanks Mr. Pawlus for all the efforts and contributions that you made to get this set to all of us, pure awesomeness.

EE is now saying April of next year. When did that happen?

You get the feeling these figures where created about two hours before being put on display at comic-con?

I'd guess there are some dleays due to production needs for all of the stuff that's coming out over the holidays, but April sure does seem like a long way off.   :(

Could be an April Fool's day joke on us to tie in with the theme of the set?   :D

It does take time to actually sculpt the new figures, cast them and get them ready for production. This is a case of Hasbro taking preorders on something they havn't actually created yet. Pretty much the same as an early bird set but without the stickers, display or box. I never preorder anything where I'm charged before shipment. That's just giving the company interest on your money.

Does anyone have a realistic timeline on this?  Seems to me that there were outlines of the figures ages ago, which maybe were something other than what we eventually saw.  But we saw the figures themselves in what, August/September?  That means prototypes were already complete or nearly so.  Not sure that I buy that the usual timeline on figures is 8 months to cast and put into production.

I'm really hoping that they're delaying them until April so Hasbro can do the comic-accurate helmets with the thinner eyes instead of just slapping OT-era Stormtrooper helmets on them.  After all, they fixed the Mandalorian helmets from the Omega/Clone/Mando sets pretty quickly after those were revealed at SDCC last year, so there is a precedent.

Bummer. Of all the exclusives, I was looking forward to this set the most.

No plans for any changes to the products at this time-- the production delays are pretty much just simple production delays, due to a variety of reasons I can't go in to, the item will be shipped a smidge later.  Hopefully by then everybody will already have their Cade/Talon and Ganner/Antares sets...

I think most will have their Cade/Talon and Ganner/Antares sets with 6 months of dust on them... :-\

I was hoping that the productions delays were related to the production delay on that Ultra articulated Stormie - that the ultra parts were going to be used on Joker Squad.

We saw these at comic con in july. So we now have to wait nine months for them. Are we sure Adam isn't just giving birth to them?

Would you believe I get a steady stream of fans emailing me telling me that they can't find them at retail?  I was surprised, too, but apparently some parts of the US aren't getting the same great comic pack distribution as wherever the heck you and I live.

Don't make fun.   Have you tried getting knocked up by someone with the right genes to make *female* Stormtroopers?  Not easy.
