I'm hoping there is announcement of Series 8 shortly as well...I'm hoping this boxset (with the Snowtrooper) that's been announced doesn't turn into Series 8. ...

My friend in Japan told me Series 8 will be announced this month, also that Medicom cut back on the #s, at least that's what their shop said .

By #s do you mean production numbers of a given series or the total number of series in a year?  I'm guessing the latter, which I can live with.  I can live with the former too. 

If they are cutting the number of series, maybe they're not going to lean into PT stuff.  A resounding "yippee" if that's the case.

This is what I was told:

"Medicom Toy reduced new Kubrick of Star Wars product numbers this time and
All of Wholesale stores of toys are troubling by it."

Things sometime get lost in translation, so I don't think to hard about it.
We just discuss stuff and to be honest we sometimes misunderstand each other.

We will get a better feel about what this might mean once Robby starts to take orders.
If he dishes out the same amount he always does or doesn't mention lower #s then what I was told won't mean much.

Unless we see a drop in what ebay and yahoo Japan have to offer, just have to wait and see.
I honestly don't think this will amount to much but I thought it might be worth mentioning.

Mine showed up at my friend's place yesterday as well, so I should have them in a week or two and be as caught up as I think I'm willing to be.

Anyone intererested in just the B-Wing Pilot and 2-1B?
Don't need to keep those or Yoda, but Yoda goes to my niece's boyfriend.

Man I wish I had friends in Japan! Does anyone know if this is going to turn out like the last 2 TRU sets and drop in price, or this one only going to be available through their collector club in a much smaller quantity?

Good question.
I'd say it would not end up like the TRU sets because its Exclusive to memebrs of the Medicom club online, one per address...BUT...BBTS took pre orders, so I'd like to know how they got their hands on that many.
Maybe they intend it for another release?
Who knows with Medicom.

From what I know about it, it was a member exclusive, but there was no limit on production.  So I'm guessing they made exceptions for the regular overseas retailers like BBTS and if you had 8 friends living close by, you could get as many as you liked.  I don't think there's much of a requirement to join the club, so long as you pay and live in Japan/HK.

The only thing I can see preventing it from falling in price is the snowtrooper.  First box set with an Imperial army builder like that and a cool one too.  Me, I think series 8 is going to have a snowtrooper and they're delaying the announcement to ensure they sell as many of these as they can.

That's the best explanation I heard as far as BBTS and other retailers.
I figured out the other part though as far as people in Japan ordering them.
Tomo was seeing how many people he could get to order for him so he had a few sets to go to people over here.
Not sure how he made out yet though, have not heard from him just yet.
Makes sense.
