That they are!
Hey Pete, glad to see you're checking out the news story. Just wanna address the elephant in th room about availability on this item. I have a great idea on about how to handle demand: When members renew or signup for next year's member figure, have an option for them to prepay for this figure as well. Persons already eligible for the current figure could be notified by e-mail to prepay as well. After deadline passes for 2012 set, open orders for additional figures with no limits on purchase. You eliminate thre birds with one stone, everyone gets a shot to get one, retailers can fill orders after deadline and you make enough to satisfy demand of one set per eligible member.
I've also PM'd you this info as well, and I'd really like to know your thoughts.
