Recent 3.75″ Figure Assortment Cancelled?

A few days ago, Robot Kingdom posted a new case assortment of 3.75″ figures featuring a mix of Rogue One and Rebels characters that included Fenn Rau (Star Wars Rebels), Imperial Death Trooper Specialist (Rogue One), Admiral Raddus (Rogue One)Shoretrooper (Rogue One), Galen Erso (Rogue One) and Lieutenant Sefla (Rogue One). We have intel that this case is being cancelled.

Hear it for yourself at the 51:50 timestamp.

3.75″ Jyn Erso (Imperial Ground Crew) Variant

It looks like we may possibly see a running change to the upcoming Sergeant Jyn Erso (Imperial Ground Crew Disguise) figure as original solicitation imagery shows her wearing the commandeered helmet, while a new carded image as turned up showing it packaged separately. No official word on whether both will be available or if this is like the 6″ K-2SO “blaster/no blaster” production change.
