Series 4

www.blister.jp has series 4 up for order. Reservation price of 8,350 Yen or $80.10 US per case of 12.

Has anyone ever delt with this place before?

If you buy a master case from them (4 boxes of 12), do you know if it comes sealed?

Yeah, nice grab Tony.  Congrats!  I'm still missing that, and the Parco Sandtrooper (like most folks here).  I hate not being complete.  But I'd also hate having to deal with marriage counseling if I bought those two...  :P

Complete, yet not complete.

Why do you say "yet not complete" Simon?  It doesn't look like you're missing anything there, unless I'm having a total brainfart.  Or unless you're counting the recently announced Series 4...

That shipping cost on the Rebo set is freakin' ridiculous!  Have Japanese postage costs gone up in general over there lately, 'cause it seems like pretty much everything is getting higher and higher coming out of Japan...   :-\

There is not anyhting left unsaid about this new series.  Napoleon could sum it up best...Sweeeeet! ;D

The Vader is long over due and the more I think how anoying another Han is because there are so many figures that have not been done, I think again because that parka is dope.  Bespin Lukes fatigue's look great too!

Yet anothe nod to Medicom for the excellence of this line.

I love that look Mikey, I've been toying with moving all of my Kubricks out of my 4 tiered case and putting them in those Johnny Lightning cases.  It looks neat

I have my SW vintage figures in my other case so I was thinking of putting their modern counterparts in the new case (and maybe the Kubricks in front of them)

Yeah, it really works out great.  It doesn't take up a lot of room and looks great when finished. 

Just wish all of the compartments were filled though.  (Hopefully eventually)

Looks great, Mikey! 

Glad you like the Johnny cases - they work great IMHO.   ;)

They look great in those cases Mikey. My supplier does not have anymore so I'll have to go another route.

Very nice display Mikey.  I really try to stay out of this thread, but with the new series announcement the other day I had to pop back in.  I so want to collect these things, but just can't afford it right now...and I'm so far behind it wouldn't be fun to catch up anyways I'm guessing.  Anyways, that next series looks fantastic (Vader, finally!), and again, nice display there Mikey.

Theres a couple of other places to pre-order series 4.

National Console Support (NCS)

Just scroll down on the left side and click Star Wars. NCS specializes on importing Japanese video game software as with other products. $8.50 each or $102. US for a box of 12.

Toys-Chameleon

Looks like 7862 Yen or $74.86 for a box of 12. Reg: 9828 Yen or $93.62 US.

I have never delt with these 2 places so I have no idea if you get a sealed master case.

Me thinks it's best to stay with places that we have delt with.  :-\

I am so torn on whether or not to order a box. I have just been buying sets with chase figures when they pop up on ebay, sadly I can't afford a master case.

When is the due date for these to hit? (Since I am asking, when are the Marvel 4 supposed to hit?)

I have dealt with Toys Chameleon.  I got my Toy Story Kubrick set A and The Nightmare Before Christmas Kubrick set C from them.  They take a while to respond, but once they get the ball rolling things go smoothly.  They ship EMS and I believe if I would have waited for their response I would have gotten my master case of series 3 for around $355 shipped.  I was impatient though and went with Spanky and paid close to $400 shipped.  Since June is a a few months off I might email them and see what they can do on a sealed master case.
