Well, we've seen multiple auctions on Ebay from people in the orient selling the E2 figures early for outrageous prices. And now Hasbro orders an immediate recall of all the cases that were accidently shipped out. If the same rules apply as with E1 cases to these, anyone breaking streetdate will be barred from future E2 figure orders for a time decided by Hasbro. I sure would hate to be the people that auctioned these off, when they cant return their cases because they sold them. Ouch!
That was a post of the news story from from Rebelscum , as well as a link to their front page where you can read the information yourself. This is really gonna cause panic to all those ebayers that broke street date to make some extra bucks.Hasbro HK Recalls EP2 Toys
Mike: In a move aimed to enforce the Lucasfilm imposed street date of April 23rd, Hasbro Hong Kong recalls all Episode 2 toy allocations that have been inadvertently distributed to merchants in that region. The huge guffaw allowed the early leak of AOTC merchandise and the ensuing proliferation of online auctions which clearly violated LFL guidelines. Hasbro HK is paying the tab for the return shipping costs and all merchants are expected to comply.
MTFBWY and HH!!
