Yup he showed up again.  Was in stock for a whole 5 minutes.

This is so odd, seems like he's popping up for like 5-10 minutes at a time.  Anyone get a shipping confirmation?

I got this far...

"Shipment #1: Shipping Soon   We are preparing these items for shipment and this portion of your order cannot be canceled or changed."

Still looking good!

I have a bad feeling about this.  Hopefully there are not a bunch of pissed off people.  But to your point Scott, it is strange it only appears for a few minutes at a time. With 3PO at only 1 per case, it seems strange all these are showing up ???

Amazon.com seems to think that I have no recent orders with them, yet I got an email from them stating that my order would be shipped out on 11/01.  I haven't received anything else from them stating that the order has been canceled, so I guess I'll have to wait till tomorrow to find out more.

I've had no word either way at the moment, so we'll see what happens.  It's like Marvel Legends or McFarlane chase pieces, order and hope for the best.  My luck thus far has sucked, so we'll see what happens here.  Everything else I've ordered from them of late has shown up.

According to Amazon, my C-3POs are set to ship tonight via USPS (lol).

I am pretty sure it is going out in the mail tomorrow... we shall see what I actually end up with!

[fingers crossed]

Very interesting...

Seems like NewForce got in the wave 2.5 vOTC case and are shipping them now (I got my ship confirmation today... I totally forgot that I had ordered this case from them). 

It would seem that the vOTC case wave 2.5 with C-3PO is starting to finally hit some places again, as 3PO has turned up in stock at Amazon, NewForce, and OMGCNFO.com too, I wonder if EE (who adjusted the ship date to Nov) is getting their cases in as well?

Maybe they will start popping up at retail again too?
