Has anyone else noticed that MR has Winter 2008 as the ship time for the Boba Fett helmet? Are they talking winter 08 as in Jan/Feb or Nov/Dec?
ya, and really winter goes until march or so.... .....so they can take there sweet time.
next you will see srping of 09" up there
i can't imagine why anyone is surprised by MR ship dates slipping... have they ever released a bucket on time? or right on the first try?
i really appreciate what they try to do, but the seem to fall flat the first few times they do anything.
yeah, I pretty much expected mine to be a few months behind schedule before I even ordered it.
GOOD FREAKING NIGHT!!!
So Shipping is winter now?
Why am I not suprised, I better get my number helmet and plaque this time.
Well you know it will have to be by March since that is when their contract says that they have to have all of their Star Wars stuff out of there.
The contract means nothing if they were licensed for the product in the past. They have full right to sell of the remaining product and finish and sell all of those in production. They just can't make anymore than the original run.
Master Replicas must stop manufacturing SW-licensed products after December 31, 2007, and they must stop shipping SW-licensed products after March 31, 2008.
Of course, resellers will still be selling already-shipped MR products after that, but any unshipped SW items in MR's inventory after 3/31/08 would probably be destroyed, or sold to the next SW licensee, depending on the terms of the contract.
