I got this from Hobby Link Japan regarding my order for Mando:

"Thank you for being a HobbyLink Japan customer! We have an updated release date for an item you have ordered.

Medicom has announced that the following items that were supposed to be released this month, will be delayed and will release at the end of June:

MEDMAFEX-129 MAFEX THE MANDALORIAN"

So lookin like the end of June for me

No he's not. there are at least 5 figures that were announced before him that haven't come out yet, and at best they release 2 in a single month. The only recent thing that was actually delivered on time was the Black Hush Batman repaint.

I'd be shocked if he comes out before September.

Not too surprising. It’ll come out when it’s ready.
They gave an explanation this time
“ Regarding the following 4 new MAFEX products scheduled to be released in May,
Due to the tight power supply in China, a manufacturing plant
Development has been significantly delayed.
Therefore, we are sorry, but we would like to postpone the release.
MAFEX No.127 LeBron James (Los Angeles Lakers)
Reference retail price: 10,450 yen (tax included)
Release date: June 2021

MAFEX No.129 MANDALORIAN
Reference retail price: 9,680 yen (tax included)
Release date: July 2021

MAFEX No.132 Michael Jordan (1992 TEAM USA)
Reference retail price: 10,780 yen (tax included)
Release date: July 2021

MAFEX No.138 WOLVERINE (BROWN COMIC Ver.)
Reference retail price: 8,580 yen (tax included)

In addition, regarding the following products,
Due to manufacturing reasons, we have decided to postpone the release significantly.

We sincerely apologize to everyone who has been waiting for the release.

Wonder if the Cap delay was to adjust the shoulder socket moulds.

I know this isn't how it works, but at this point it'd be great if he was delayed another 6 months and they made it the definitive season 1 and 2 Mando.

Add a leg with the new thigh plate, the jetpack, the mudhorn pauldron, the spear and the hands to hold it, two unmasked heads (one from each season), and the shorter cape.

Yeah, that'd be great.

Technically it’s the same cape, just tattered. The Mafex shoulder pads are typically attached to the torso or the floating shoulder socket thing, neither lend themselves to swappable options.

This is what Mando looked like for most of the first season (4 full and 2 half episodes), I like that they’ve done that rather that have an up to date bells and whistles version.

They wouldn’t change the release anyway, no they might do a back half of season 2 version in a year or so.

They just updated their Endgame Iron Man figure to include an awesome face portrait as well as an Infinity Gauntlet... and it comes out in August. Hoping beyond hope they decide to give Mando a jetpack, at least. The jetpack is such an important accessory and will allow so many extra poses. Didn't think it was worth hoping for until I saw that Stark portrait.

I agree. Jetpack and mudhorn pauldron would make me the happiest boy in all the land.

I don't think they will do the pauldron because of what Benedict mentioned about their shoulder joint system.

I know it's way too early for this but I'm not sure if I'll pick up a season 2 Mando from any import company just for the thigh & knee armor upgrades.

Sure he will probably come with a jetpack, signet, spear & other stuff but between the current SHF & this Mafex version I think I'll wait for the season 3 look.

I have a feeling the Armorer will give Din a Krayt Dragon signet of his left pauldron & then I'll look at my Mando as incomplete again :lol:
