Um...  WOW.

So apparently I'll be taking my extra Leia off the trading table.  Went ahead and opened it finally (I could see it was another Leia through the window), and guess what?

Yep, my dumb lucky ass just scored the Series 1 Chase figure!

Cool.   :D

Nice score there.  8)  And from just a 6-pack even.

My 12-pack should arrive here by next Wednesday, according to the tracking number, and I'm sure to have some multiples to trade. Hopefully I can put together a full set plus chase from this.

Found the Chewbacca Bust-Up at Hot Topic today. They didn't have any other characters, just Chewbacca. And they had like ten of them. ::)

Did you actually check the little window on the box to see if they were all Chewbacca?  Because, all the 1st series boxes have Chewy pictured on the front.

Really?

Oh ****.

I just checked, and I got a Han!

Thanks for the heads-up. Now I'm gonna go back and check the rest of them...

Vader is in the second assortment which has not been released yet.   So, don't look too hard.  ;)

Picked up a complete set Monday. It was a bitch to look in that window to figure out what bust was in which box, what with Hot Topic's crappy lighting.

Luke and Han look a bit goofy, Leia's alright, 3PO is different (but neat-o), but my favorites are Chewie and Yoda.

Just got my 12-pack plus spirit Yoda from EE today. Did pretty good too. Got 5 of the 6 regular figs and also got the variant Leia. I have 2 extra Chewys, 2 extra Yodas, an extra Leia and an extra Han. All I need is the C-3PO. Pretty happy overall.

Yeah, so I've heard...    >:(

But I'll be patiently waiting on the sideline 'til precious Mr. Canucklehead figures out where he stands in a week or so!   :-*

precious is right buddy boy, you people need me (holy **** is my head getting large). 

Changing topic slightly, anyone notice that series 2 of the bust ups is no longer on the SSW.com site?  I did a search both by company and under "bust ups" and they didn't come up for me.  Wonder where they went?  Still at EE though, I think I may preorder there for a full case. 

Still expecting a chase piece in each series.  Not so concerned about series 2, but if it's in series 3 and it's the last bounty hunter, that could get scary. 

Don't worry little Matt, it will all work out :-*

Series 2 looks to be a Vader chase and Boba Fett for series 3.

Vader is logical, but I'm surprised at the Fett chase.  I thought it would be the missing bounty hunter from the original six.   :-\
