We saw EI stuff around Thanksgiving 3 years ago!!!

Where's the EII stuff?!?!?!?!

April 22nd is 5 months away, include in shipping and distribution time and you mean to tell me the only product they have to wet our appetites with was the Obi-Wan Chase? Shouldn't their whole line be a done deal by now, just waiting in warehouses to start shipping?

If you still want to entertain the thought of any preview figures, that cuts the time even shorter.

I do have one rather disturbing thought. Hasbro and the Retailers took it up the keister soooooo badly with EI that everyone is being OVERLY cautious with supply and orders for EII, perhaps even to the point that the stuff becomes VERY DIFFICULT to find. I don't think any of us expect to see peg warmers into the fall.....but maybe we won't see them past summer at all. I think we all better save our money and buy those Clonetroopers ASAP or run the risk of not getting them at all.

Okay impatient one, as I understand it there will be no preview figures until February/March/ April. They will precede the major release of the toys in May when the film opens. One of the preview figures may be a mail-in that can be obtained if you have saved your jedi points from the cardbacks.
Hasbro have said that although there will be plenty figures released in the episode two line they will be released in more conservative numbers than were the episode one figures. Thus nipping in the bud the potential for wholesale catastrophe as far as returns go.

Pictures of the new figures are probably not being releaed because they are protected by LFL badass lawyers who threaten anyone releasinfg non approved material with menaces at every opportunity.
Also, as many of the figures are based on CGI characters, there's a distinct possibility that LFL will alter a characters looks or delete a character in the final edit. It would be embarrasing to Hasbro to premiere a figure only to have it not show in the movie. E.G. episode 1 R2 with booster rockets..... catch my drift?

With one figure picture out it means we might be surprised when they all come out in may :)
