That's it?!?!

Did they even run slides for new battlepacks or the other Class 1 Fleet sets?

So they finally address the distribution problem, and the solution is to reship them all in 2012?

How does that get rid of the 10 million clones and sandtroopers clogging the pegs?

Case assortment needs to be part of the fix as well.

Sure sounds that way...unless the other stuff is early? 

Deleted scene figures?  Hmmn.
