    I.E., on what day can I stop holding my breath??? :)


    Will series one still be available when series two is released?

    If you read 'Ask Ken' this has been answered, but it looks like late October/Early November - and only series one stuff that hasn't sold in the shops yet will be available, no new shipments or series 1 figures will be produced.

    There is not a specific release date for the Figures. They ship from the factory and when they hit store shelves is up to the retailers and depends on shipping and stocking policies.

    Actually, you're both right. Annika is right that we have no way of being absolutely certain when the stuff will be on shelf for the reasons she cited, and Luke is right in that we have said that late Oct/early November is our best guess window of the stuff being on the shelf.

    Some retailers may capitalize on the Series 2 being on the shelf to also keep any leftover Series 1 they may not have shelved yet in order to take advantage of the new retail presence, but no new Series 1 figures will be produced per se.

    I see Electronic Botique's pre-order for me of Sept 16th or so was quite overly optimistic :( Oh well, I can wait. (well, not really, but if I HAVE to)

    They usually are

    EB tries to get close on those dates, but they always post their pre-orders so far in advance that it's awfully tough for them to not miss it.

    They are usually overly optimistic too, which means they have to move the date back 9 times out of 10. Ah well, all good things come to those that wait.

    Also, will the Electric Mayheim drum stage with Animal make it out in time for CHristmas? ANd when will they stop shipping Muppet Labs? I haven't been so lucky with money lately, so I haven't got it yet!

    I think they said that The EM stage will ship a couple weeks after the regular assortment. Hopefully by the end of November. Also don't want it to come out while I'm in Florida, if I see it I'll have to buy it and it'll be a pain to ship back to Seattle.

    They quit shipping Muppet Labs a while ago. Each series is produced and all merchandise is shipped out. They do not make more. They may ship in waves from China, but we're talking about a couple weeks, not a month or two.

    I just hope i manage to collect all of the basic series 2 figures, i am also saving up for the new toa nuva sets from the lego bionicle line.

    EB currently lists the series 2 release as 10/4.

    ahh..when I put my preorder on them in August, they told me sept 16...this is also in Canada, so the dates are different (and usually later) but I'm sure they've changed it too....they told me it was liable to change and that they'd call me when the figures come in...

    Dates are different in Canada? Did you switch to the metric calendar there?

    Hey Crazy Ernie, I used to be a developer on a failed Bionicle PC game. We had all the bionicle guys months before they came out in the stores. Unfortunately the game was a piece of doodie and Lego came to their senses and cancelled it.

    hmm..perhaps I should be more specific - RELEASE dates are different in Canada :D

    Series 2 release

    Kermit and Piggy figures were at my ToysRUs in June. I didn't see the others (Teeth and Honeydew) and the playset at that store until the last week of August. Very weird! I think it all depends on when the retailers can get the stuff... and here at my end of the glode, B.C. Canada, that seems to be forever. I am hoping too that the stores may have more of the lab sets in their warehouse and won't put them out until series 2 arrives hoping for a "Christmas buzz" in muppet sales. I am hoping at least! Doubt it though!

    Hey stryder wolfe! How much did your EB charge to preorder and was there a cut off date? Do they normally allow customers to preorder toys cause mine doesn't have it advertised.
