My sets have shipped as well ;D

What bugs me is that when you look at the EE pre-order pages, all of the SINGLE boxes and the set of 2 show a January date and people are getting shipping notices.  Yet, the "buy the case" pre-order still says FEBRUARY?   :-\

I hope I don't have to wait for them to fill a bunch of single orders before I get my cases of those droids...  ::)

That's what's happening Jeff. I called EE to see if I can pick up my case, and they explained to me that they are filling the set orders first as they have not recieved their full order from Hasbro yet.

So, basically they are filling the orders where they make the most money first?  Lame.   >:(  >:(  >:(

Didn't they get bitch slapped for doing this back a few years ago?  They were selling cases at a show before they had even started to ship preorders to customers like me

The infamous 2003 Wave 13 case... don't even get me started on that one.   >:(

I can see why they are doing it that way - a case has 5 sets for $300, but if they fill the "by the set" orders first, they get $75 per set or $375 for that same case.  It's a way for them to get the money back on them the fastest.   

It sucks ass though that those of us who chose the more economical route get penalized and have to wait... :(

Yep, that's not very cool. I was hoping to pick them up this coming Friday, but that seems unlikely now.

I need to order a set of these soon. That pic of all the astros lined up looks sweet. I think I'll wait until after all of the preorders ship though.

I went ahead and ordered one set today, don't know why I did, the price is just ridiculous.  I guess they will look cool in various dioramas.

 :P

Just curious.
