I see your point Nick, and I wouldn't have an issue with cases being sent out and then processing the individual orders.  However, they should have ordered enough cases of this wave to satisfy both the full case orders and the individual orders.  Pretty much ever figure in this wave collectors want.  I just don't understand why my single orders are delayed until next spring without any explanation.

What really chaps my ass is that Australia and the UK are seeing this stuff way before us and while I'm happy they get new stuff as well, I'd like to see some stuff here from time to time!
This is the way.

I saw a news piece earlier today that discussed the supply chain issues that are being felt on a global scale.  Part of it seems to be a shortage of shipping containers.  And more rigorous Covid protocols at ports of entry has slowed down freight processing, too.  That's led to a backlog of containers that are waiting to be inspected and then distributed to their end recipients.

It's weird that all the full case orders are being processed and all the single orders are having to wait.

90% of the time these days, the single figure pre-orders are being fulfilled from solid-figure cases rather than by breaking up the retail mix cases.  It's one of the reasons the etailers can offer up the "short pack" figures in good numbers since they can pick and choose what they think will sell best.

Yeah, it sounds like a LOT of the Fall Star Wars product is going to be really hit or miss on delays depending on when/where it left (China vs Vietnam) and which port it is entering the US.  Get used to seeing the "your order has been delayed emails" I guess...

My ahsoka maul case is due here fairly soon...  I’m glad and all and I may cancel my extras I put in for on Amazon depending.  Be nice to have some new Star Wars.

Ordered Maul and Ahsoka from Gamestop. Both went from something like "ready to ship" on 8/16 or 8/18 to "awaiting product availability". Now Maul says available 8/27. We'll see. Hoping these are finally getting through for everyone.

After pushing out the order a dozen times Target finally sent me a cancellation email for Maul and Ahsoka.

I wonder if these will ever make it to retail or online in any meaningful numbers.

I’m still trying to track my order from EE. Amazingly there have been some status updates, but no clarity about when I can actually expect delivery.

Well that's a kick to the nuts.

I managed to re-preorder Maul, but Ahsoka was sold out...
