Last we heard, they had been delayed until the end of April (04/30/08). 

HLJ has this series listed for an April release & Robby has it listed for April 30th. 

At least another month away...  :-\

I think I'm in the minority (to say the least) but I'm very excited about the prequel Kubricks coming out, and in fact they are probably the reason I decided to go ahead and start collecting the Star Wars line in earnest. I just think they're really well done. And for all its faults, I have a soft spot for the Phantom Menace, so I'm especially looking forward to Series 8. I'm definitely hoping that one of the chases is a Jar-Jar. However you feel about him, he did have a major role in the movie, and I actually like the gungan design.

My guess is Jar-Jar will be chase.
I doubt I'll keep it if I get it though, not a big fan!
Anyone guess on the other chases?
I'll have to look back in the thread...

OOM-9 or Nute Gunray in the Battle Droid box
Palpatine or sith training Darth Maul in the Darth Maul box
Padawan Anakin or Watto in the Pod Racer Anakin box
Padme Naberrie or Jar Jar in the Queen Amidala box
Obi-Wan or Jar Jar in the Qui-Gon box
R2-D2 or Shmi Skywalker in the C-3PO box

I'm still sticking with these guesses for chases.

I hope Jar Jar isn't a chase.

I think the chases will be:

Jar Jar Binks
Obi-Wan
Watto

And the last one has a real possibility of being Nute but I just want Watto more ;)

Watto

Great prognostication skills...   plagiarist.   ::)

I wouldn't be sursprised if TPM Obi-Wan was the more common chase (like 3:48 or even 4:48) for Series 8, while JarJar and Watto end up being the harder 1:96 chase pieces.

I still think the three most likely chases are:

- Obi-Wan (easy chase, in the Qui-Gon box)
- Watto (rare chase, in the Anakin Box)
- and JarJar (rare chase, in the Padme box)

This is a good guess.
Although I think R2 may be a good one as well.

And I'm hoping the chase figures are all PT.  I understand doing PT Kubs, but don't go messing around and mixing stuff up.  That's just wrong.  Wrong like ewoks are wrong.

Wel they already mixed things up once with the Senate Guard, I could see them doing it again.

Possibly. I kind of looked at it as a nod to the future of the Star Wars Kubrick line and not so much an indication of the blending of the PT and OT from chase standpoint. But I guess we'll find out soon enough.
