I think they are the same? Well, I'm kinda guessing, but from the original approval release it sounded like a "3" variant to me.

Personally I don't believe it could be the 'new 2001 CE Roc' no way they have the same plastic. It is only the newest Roc. That is all.
Are you saying 2001 CE Roc's are San Marino molds? Because they are not. They are Rancho molds.

I think you are misinterpreting what he was saying. I think he was comparing the two in terms of desirability and collectability, not claiming they were the same thing

The sad part is the 'load' being experienced during these releases is relatively pathetic compared to any other sort of website that sees a rush with limited availability items.

I don't think it would cost them too much to get some 'on demand' CDN support to handle the hundreds (lol) of customers hitting their store when the know a limited release is coming out.

DB/cache/etc load balancing is definitely a bit trickier but on a scale this small... relatively trivial.

The nice thing about this release is it's proved I'm cured of the high-priced-first-release-plastic syndrome I had.
I didn't even try to buy one of these.

innova is a distributor and the retailers are their customers...innova can't service the public by themselves which is why they sell through distribution...if retailers arent happy with innova and don't buy innova then innova makes less and less profit which means there is no more innova
