I think the reason they haven't sold out isn't because there aren't a lot of collectors, but because a lot of collectors are not impressed with the set for the price. I don't think the movie figures look great and the inclusion of a ring and a cheap base with a number stamped on it is not enough to get me to drop 30 bucks on a 7 dollar figure. Glad they sold the rings separately, because now I really have no reason to want to order this.

If that were true it wouldn't have sold out the first time around.

So are the TRU keychain rings($9.99) the same as the early bird rings because I just picked up a TRU ring and it looks exactly the same as the early bird ring(sorry if it's been discussed before I didn't want to go through the whole thread).

They are being sold in a bag as a keychain for $9.99 at TRU. My local TRU just sold out of them so they seem to be pretty popular.

Yeah that kinda sucked on Mattels part selling the set with (IMHO) a crappy 4 inch figure with a ring as a "limited edition" for $30 when they were going to sell the ring seperately as a keychain AND include it with a MM Hal figure. It is a nice ring though and happily paid the $9.99 for it as I didn't want the Early Bird set.

I went to TRU over the weekend and they had a bunch of rings in a box at the front counter.

As far as the early bird figure, I think they're pulling the wool over our eyes and had several different production runs of 2814. As many people/collectors as there were that placed multiple orders, 2814 would have been sold out long ago. TRU even cancelled orders and wouldn't take any more from lack of product and now, all of a sudden there's more? I smell a rat.

I agree with you on that one...
