Here's an email I got:
Thank you for signing up for the Lightspeed Pass for Hasbro’s Holiday Yoda figure, presented exclusively by the Official Star Wars Fan Club! Here’s the latest news on how you can order this holiday season’s most-wanted collectible:

As a Lightspeed Pass holder, you’ll be notified via email at the earliest time at which you can order your Holiday Yoda figures. In the first weeks, only those who receive their order notice will be able to purchase the Holiday Yoda online.

Please note that you can order any time after your receive your Lightspeed order notice, but not before. If you cannot get online immediately please rest assured that there are many Holiday Yoda figures in stock – more than enough for all current Lightspeed Pass holders, even if everyone orders the maximum of three figures per person.

We learned some lessons from the rush of orders we received for the silver-painted Boba Fett action figure, and we have worked hard to make the ordering process smoother and more frustration-free. The Lightspeed Pass system should help you order your Holiday Yoda figures with less hassle, and help us better manage the traffic to our website.

Heres the intended schedule:

Lightspeed Pass holders will receive invitations over a two week period in mid to late October. Active subscribers may order the figure any time after receiving their invitation.
Fear not! There are lots and lots of Holiday Yoda figures for our members, so dont fret if you are not in one of the first batches invited to order.
Active subscribers who did not sign-up for Lightspeed Passes will be able to order starting near the end of October.
Lightspeed Pass holders without a currently active subscription toStar Wars Insider will be able to order starting in early November, provided there are Holiday Yoda figures left in stock.
Here’s how you can get ready:

If you have a currently active subscription to Star Wars Insider then we may need you to associate your subscription with your online account if you havent already. To do this, sign in at http://starwars.paizo.com/mysubs
If you ordered or renewed a Star Wars Insider subscription on paizo.com since August 1st, or if you ordered the silver-painted Boba Fett, you wont need to associate your subscription with your account again.
If you have problems associating your subscription with your account, or if you have specific questions about the Holiday Yoda figure, please email us at holiday.yoda@paizo.com
If you are not currently a subscriber or have an expired subscription and want to order with your Lightspeed Pass, then subscribe to Insider now at http://starwars.paizo.com/swinsider
Thank you for your enthusiasm and let us be the first to wish you a Happy Holidays!

I haven't received an updated message as of this morning (10-3). I reconfirmed that I am signed up to be notified, just in case.

i didn't get an email either, but i did the same thing, reconfirmed my lightspeed pass. boy, i hope this doesn't get hosed up. i never saw the r2/3p0 set, so i would really like to get my hands on one of the yoda's.

I figure there's enough guys on this board and other SW boards who'll get the word out when the figure is available.

I got an e-mail, in fact I got three of them, all saying the same thing. I did get the R2 and 3PO one, and I like it. Yoda will be a welcome part to my collection.

I like the way they are handling this promotion . . . it sure beats that Kitik Keedak debacle. :crazed:

Okay.....It says the Yoda is available for order, but 1st you have to be INVITED to order them.......what the HELL??!!! I signed up for Lightspeed before it was even mentioned on any Fansite, so I'm sure I beat the RUSH to sign up...ad I've been a FC member for years, PLUS I signed up for HYPERSPACE.

I know I'm being an impatient whiner, but jeez.....do only webmasters and reporters for the sites get 1st dibs on these and everyone else gets shut out?

I got an email saying the invites will be starting soon and going through the end of the month.

Patience Chuck, patience. :D
