Same here Babs! Very happy how both worked with the original Robin Hood scene release.

Hopefully these did as well as Marketing hoped and we see more characters added in 2010. There are so many great characters that are part of this scene that could be added! JTDO.

Very happy to hear that. Glad i got mine early. But if they were limited to production year 2009, shouldn't they still be produced for about 4 months? I always thought that it meant they would produce them the rest of the year and then they finish making them.

I think these will be a couple of pieces that will increase in value when time passes. I mean, they were gone after only a short time, many might have missed them.

I too wondered how they handled items that were limited to a specific production year. Do they initiate orders that allow production to flow until the end of that year or schedule so many orders, once they're produced, that's it?

Glad also I got mine when first released. Twice have waited on pieces, thinking I had plenty of time, then had to search out. Will be interesting to watch the secondary value on these.
