Why were there two different distributions in the Series 3 collectable minifig boxes?

Quite a few people noted that the early S3 boxes had a different figure selection from the later ones; specifically the early boxes had fewer fishermen & more space aliens.

This was raised with LEGO through the Ambassador programme; what was the reason behind the different distributions?

The official response from LEGO was that there were production difficulties with the fisherman figure when they first started production; the decision was made to proceed with the release of the Series 3 figures, but to substitute the alien figure until they could get production of the fisherman up to full rate, and then revert to the original box distribution, which they subsequently did.
