I ordered a Bric near the deadline and got a notice today in the mail that my order is delayed till like July 27th or something along those lines.  It's a ways off.  Just thought I'd give a heads up to those who ordered another last-minute as I did.

It's a weird thing...  They may just feel they don't need the promo because the line does so well on its own.  Popularity aside. 

Or they may just cost too much.  Bric had to be pricey.

I got the post card today, too.  I can wait.  Clone Wars figures are generally a lower priority for me, so it's not that big of a deal for me to wait until July.  Bric was in what, ONE episode in Season 3?  As long as I get him before Season 4 premieres I'll be fine.

For those who have received the post card, have your checks been cashed?  My check was cashed on 3/31 but haven't received the post card yet.  I'm not in a hurry to get my 1 Bric but was just curious.

My checks were cashed, and I sent my redemption forms in either in late February or early March.  Even though I got the post card, I FULLY expect Hasbro to get my Sgt. Brics to me.  I cannot imagine that they would want to start sending out refund checks.  And with the timeframe that the post cards have given us, it seems that Hasbro is probably ordering another run of figures so that they can process the outstanding orders.

I was thinking the same thing McMetal.

I agree with what Jesse said re: the popularity of the line, but I think another factor may have been demand pre-Holidays vs. post-Holidays. I could see a lot of kids getting figures for Xmas (for example) and also getting $$ which might translate into ordering the game mat and Bric. That holiday rush could be something that took Hasbro by surprise.

That's a good point Pete, I hadn't even considered that but it makes a lot of sense. 

My check was cashed not long after the due-date actually, and I sent mine in the last week I was eligible since it was just an extra.
