I'm beginning to see why pre-orders for previously cancelled product might have been so low. Or at least perceived by DST as low.
No worries, Augie. If DST didn't want people thinking a product was canceled, they shouldn't be adding it to a list they publish as "orderforms/JAN20_Cancel.txt".
What's troubling is that you got a refund and were led to believe by a retailer that the product was canceled. I have to wonder how many other times an internal error has led to a product with plenty of preorders being perceived as canceled leading to a stop in production. Is this what happened with Ghost Rider? Classic TMNT? Bruce Lee?
