sounds fishy, wonder why so long, maybe theyre hoping by then youll forget about it, better keep the sellers info just in case you have to make a house call

I ordered mine back on march 17th and just checked the status of the order.  It says that the item will ship out May 20th  :'(

That's what mine says. But Nickel said his friend ordered his a few weeks earlier and his email said it would be shipped in May as well, but he'd gotten it before I ordered mine. I really wish I knew what was going on there.

Well, it is Amazon.com/ Toys 'R Us.com, so I don't see any reason why they'd be unreliable. I've never had trouble with them in the past.

I hate to say it but this seems like an old amazon standard.  Every once and a while a long out of stock item is suddently listed in stock, sometimes it is legit but sometimes it is just a glitch.  It does happen occasionally, so don't be too surprised if you get the old your item is no longer in available email, or worse still an ROTS Obi.

Even so I'm pulling for you Aayla, especially considering the going rate for the AOTC mini. :D

To confuse matters more, Amazon now has a pic of the AFBB Obi-Wan mini in that same listing for the AOTC mini, yet it still says Attack of the Clones.  ???

Looks more and more like you might get a mini out of this but is anyone's guess as to which one at this point. :(

Yeah, and now it says ships in 1 to 2 weeks. Yet when I check my original order it says May 15.  :-\

Worst part is as recently as 6 months ago these were in stock everywhere at MSRP.  But MR is good about keeping the high priced standard minis low by finding more, so even if the amazon order doesn't work out I really would advise against chasing one on ebay, because with the price difference you'd hate to pay the premium just before they release more.

Call it pessimism but I'd bet they are selling an ROTS Obi now. :(
