Cooder and Llewellyn Sinclair Arrive!

The flood of new WoS continues! Collectors have started receiving their Cooder and Llewellyn Sinclair mail-away figures today. SCS member WooHoo shares this info: "They were in a small white box. The figures were bagged and held in place with cardboard filler. Inside some of the filler were the accessories (so don't just throw it out!). The accessories are rather nice. Cooder has a novelty size comb, 3 ring-toss rings (that are connected together), cash (reuse from Burns) and a cash box. Sinclair has a play reveiw ('Play Enjoyed By All'), a script for 'Oh, Streetcar!', a business card for the Ayn Rand School For Tots and a ball point pen". These were shipped First Class, so everyone should receive them soon.

UPDATE!: We have added an image of these to our Release Guide. Thanks to Laura Quirk.
