J-Man hooked me up: SW Kubrick series 5 and a couple of extras I couldn't resist. Super nice guy and a pleasure to deal with--highly recommended!   ;D

Think there's any chance they'd do a Cantina aliens box set to coincide with DX3?

I don't know?  I guess I'd rather not see it unless they aren't duplicating chase figures.  It's great for new collectors when they do things like Han/Luke stormtroopers but I'm more than a little annoyed by it.  Whiney, yes.  I am not sure whether they'll continue with box sets though and if they're like the one with the snowtrooper then ouch. 

I don't blame you. I'm a new collector, but I thought re releasing the Han and Luke Stormtroopers was a lame move. It's just not fair to people who bought the originals, and it pretty much kills their value: they were on the top of my want list until I found out they we're doing that new set. At the very least, they could've given them wet hair and trash compactor slime!

Anyway, I was envisioning a boxset with 5 new aliens. There are plenty to choose from. Let's see-- Dr. Evazen, Hammerhead, the devil guy, Kabe, and Talz off the top of my head. If it was a collectors club thing it'd be pricey, but I'd rather pay $200 for that than $150 for one chase. I know the chances of them actually doing it are pretty slim though.

It's probably the last time I buy a Master Case for awhile, though, as I would have lost money even if I had sold the chases.

That's really a bummer. You were the first US seller on ebay to have these (I got a set of 6 from you ;D) and since then I haven't seen too many others. Hopefully Medicom does something about this so collectors don't have to give up on getting cases.

I agree--sweet display, Stealthtank. What kind of riser steps are those? Are they just clear medicom cases stacked up?

I'd prefer Momaw as well. But seeing how this dastardly AT-ST driver has performed so far, it seems like the much-beloved Hammerhead would be impossible to get a hold of as a 1:96 chase.

Think there's any chance they'd do a Cantina aliens box set to coincide with DX3?

Dan is seriously the man! Not only did he give me a great deal on Series 6+7 and the Droids R2 and Threepio I've been jonesing for, he also threw in a surprise bonus--Wedge Antilles!! He told me he found something extra to throw in, but I assumed it would be a couple of stickers or something, not a highly awesome bonus Kub! That was too nice, man. Thanks so much!! Everybody do business with this guy.  :)

Nah, I think that series was the last master case I bought, so I just have a few left over is all.  No worries if not but if you do need one, lmk.

Thanks. Will do.  :D

How many biker scouts do you want?

Haha, were you building an army of biker scouts at some point? I've got a tentative deal for series 7 (the one w/ the biker scout) in the works; if that falls through I'll let you know. One is all I need.  ;)

Hmm, interesting. Thanks for your expertise, guys. I picked up a Luke and Leia speeder bike set, and I was toying with maybe getting the biker scout set. Might just save my money and just get a regular biker scout for now though, and let them take turns with the bike.  ;)

 I see that the Biker Scout that comes in the speeder bike box set has a battle damaged uniform. Does anyone know if the bike itself differs from the bike that comes with the Luke and Leia set?

It'd be pretty rad if they did Dr. Evazen (Ponda Baba's loudmouth Cantina friend) as a chase...

My DX2 set arrived this weekend! Gotta say, this is such a good looking set--especially Leia and the Snowtrooper. Anyone else struggle trying to put the damn AT-ST together? Snapping on the stupid side guns was ridiculous--they made Salacious Crumb's tail seem like a cakewalk.   ;)

You outbid me in the last few seconds on that one Sad  but I won the other lot Cheesy

Oops, haha. I guess it's karma that I lost on the background, then. Glad you got the other one, though. I briefly considered bidding on the chase trooper, but decided against it in the end (think it went for like $110.  And I placed a futile bid for his Mace Windu, but to no avail.

Yeah, I saw that someone had gotten that case for $100--pretty crazy. And individual figures went for like $3.00 and even 1 penny. Someone could've picked up Luke, Han, Chewie and Snowtrooper for under $20/shipped, I bet. But they wouldn't have gotten the cool ones, though...*evil/greedy chuckle*
