I have a Master Case ordered as well but I'm thinking of dropping that in leiu of picking up a full set w/ chases like I did before.  That usually runs around $200-$220 instead of the $300 and hassle of selling sets


That's what I'm thinking about doing.  After the trouble I had of catching up, I figure this is the easiest (and most likely, least expensive) way to go.

Thats not a bad way to go. If I were just buying for me, I would do that.
But my buddies and I like to order the master case, get a case of beer
and make a night of it. Last time I got the chase, so I`m out for this
chase  :-[

Man that is awesome. Yoda looks incredible. I cant believe we got a look of series 5 before we even got series 4 in our hands. Just fantastic. Blue Snagg i hope and think is a definate for a chase figure.  ;D

This is my plan with both four and five.  I'll just watch for it, bite the bullet and be done. 

I think HLJ is not filled with fools.  I think they know which boxes to ship out as single boxes of 12 and which to retain otherwise.  Much as the folks here have a really good notion of how the box arrangement in the master case is set up.

I purchased 1 box of 12 from HLJ and I pulled a VC Jawa.  I don't think HLJ goes through master cases and sift out the one with chases.  That would not be good karma.

I'm trying my luck again as I order  a single box of 12.  ;D

Well I'm more than pleased to be shown wrong on that point.  I think that's a spectacular piece of business for HLJ to be doing things that way. 

Thanks for pointing out my error, I guess it's just been my bad luck with boxes from them. :'(

Here are my predictions/thoughts-

Yoda- 1/12 (He's way too big)
Jedi Luke- 3/12- Chase Holo, Dagobah, or caped (We should be getting the cape anyway!)
Slave Leia- 1/12 (What's with her boobs?)
Admiral Ackbar- 1/12
Death Star Gunner- 2/12- Chase Death Star Commander (only one from the original 12-back missing) or Tie Fighter Pilot
Snaggletooth- 2/12- Chase Blue Snaggletooth (Seems we all agree on this one)

I definitely sense the Jabba boxed set coming.

If they make her boobs too big, she will fall over. Her hair isn`t big enough to
counter weigh them I think.
The Kubrick Jean Grey has a big rack, but huge hair to keep her balanced.
I took her hair off (yeah, I play with them some when I get them, so what!  :P )
when I got her and she fell right over. I also put her boobs on Daredevil (don`t ask) and he could hardly stand  ;D

I think we should mail Medicom and demand a better rack!  She's not 80 years old.  She had a tight little body back in '82.  Let's do it for Carrie Fisher!  I'm sure Medicom can fix it.  Those must be protos.

HAHAHAHA....oh, that Slave Leia figure just cracks me up!!  The rest are very cool and I'm bummed I never jumped in to this line in the beginning.  I was wondering if anyone has acquired all the chase figures?  Is Ebay the best way to go for these or do you just buy a cases??

I too ordered a box of series 4 from HLJ and plan on doing the same for series 5.  This is great news to release in Fall or Winter. 

The wait for series 4 has been hard.  BTW, any hard and fast dates on the release of 4?

Yep, the place where I ordered them from said they will ship to them on 2nd-5th sometime. Same with RAH Vader in case anyone has that on order.
