I agree entirely Nick; I didn't even order the Luke at all and the Stormtrooper isn't nearly as well executed as I think it could be. I think there's potential in the line still though:
OT Ben with hood up
Jabba w/Salacious crumb
Jedi Luke (or Death Star version from 1st movie with blaster)
Essentially the usual cast of characters. I've really liked when they have combined two figures (Leia/R2; 3PO/Jawa) so I think it would be neat if they'd combine Han and Chewie. I imagine that one would have to be a bit pricier, but I'd consider that acceptable personally. I wouldn't buy all that I listed above but I would pick up a couple for sure depending on how they looked. The fanboy in me would love to see Jabba with a Slave Leia.
What I do hope is they spread out the releases more. This fast and furious
release schedule feels a bit Hasbro-esque, like they're trying to tap the license as much as they can, as soon as they can.
I'm not overly surprised that Boba might be oversold. I dragged my feet on it and ordered quite late. I was pleased to find one at BBTS at all and a little surprised when I got the email asking me to pay for it. Even more surprised (and pleased) when I got the shipping notice with tracking number. My guess is certain retailers might have oversold more than anything else, as per your suggestion. I've ordered every piece except Fett from TalesofWonder.com and when I went back to order the Fett from them they no longer had it listed and that was maybe three weeks after initially putting it up for pre-order.
As mentioned above my Leia/R2 has already arrived and my local comic shop is suggesting he's getting his Fetts this week too (Diamond). We'll see if that happens. He's a good guy, but he got screwed by Diamond on the ROTS Vader bust of all things, so something even more rare makes me nervous to order from him.
