Being that I live in Bozeman, MT, where you have to send your cards and proofs-of-purchases to get the Captain Rex figure, I am probably one of the first people to receive this notice.
The postcard I received today, May 1st, stating the delay reads as follows:
"Dear Clone Wars Figure Requestor:
We have received your redemption request for the Clone Wars 2008 Captain Rex collectable figure. Due to an unanticipated production delay, we will be unable to ship the figure(s) to you until the last week of July, 2008. If you don't want to wait until then, you may cancel your order and receive a prompt refund by calling our toll-free customer service number, (800) 327-8264. Customer service hours are M-TH 8:30am-5:30am; Fr 8:30am-12:30pm. If we do not hear from you by July 1, 2008, we assume that you have agreed to this shipment delay. Please DO NOT call the toll-free number unless you want to cancel your order. We thank you for your patience and apologize for the delay."
The card has the Clone Wars logo on it that looks like the one on the offer on the packages and it was sent from right here in town (PO Box 10760 Bozeman, MT 59717).
If I could scan this in I would- however you will all be receiving the notice soon enough BUT-
You heard it from me, first
