Pics e-mailed to me by a friend...

I hope that those chases don't end up in single packed boxes (i.e. Anakin, Obi, Count).

Way to jinx us Brent...   ::)

Damn!  Sorry about that.....

I'm loving the way the chases look.  Still wish we'd get both faces for Zam


Interesting that all this news on Series 9 hits the web around the same time that Robby said they were delayed.  Do you think from your experiences that maybe the "delay" was premature and they may still ship at the end of this month??

Medicom decided to sell some Series 9 direct at the show as a sneak preview. 

From what I understand, they aren't bulk shipping them to the distributors until after the show is over, mid-July.  It's sort of an "if you take the time to go see the show, you can get them early" bonus kind of thing.

So, you may see a few pop-up on eBay as a result of the show sales, but the bulk of S9 won't hit until the later half of July...

Good to know!  I was wondering how we started getting bagged photos so early.

2 for 3 :)

I think it will shake out like this:

Zam Wessel
Plo Koon
Clone Trooper (Green or Blue or Yellow)

Mace IMO will be in Series 10

My guesses:

Boba Fett (Kid version), Arena Padme, Clone Officer


Well, I got one right (the Clone officer) not much of a stretch there, but I'm surprise that I guessed the Boba Fett kid version and we're getting one Jango/Boba 2 pack  :P

Wow, 2 chases taking 1 per box figures out- that means in all likelihood that no master case will have 4 sets of basic figures  :-\
Or if it does, you've been shafted on chases again  >:(

Very nice chases, Shaak Ti & Zam Wessell are kick ass. The Yellow Clone Trooper is not too shabby. Bring it on!

What a frickin' year for Kuby's, talk about breaking the bank!  ;D

Clones.  Why did it have to be clones. 


Pathetically, about the only thing aside from Darth Maul I have a hard time resisting from the PT is clones.  Guess I'll be going after that chase piece. :-\

Very cool chases for series nine.  I can't decide on a favorite yet. 

I hope we don't have a repeat of series 8 regarding distribution.

Just read a post over at KN from someone who was at the Medicom show and bought two Series 9 boxes of 12.  In their first box, they got 2 Yellow Clones in the 4 Clone Trooper boxes.  They didn't get anything in their other box of 12.

So with an 'n' of 1, we might be back to a Common Chase with a ratio of 2:48...

I am sure a little research would answer this for me, but I'm just too damn lazy. How much does it cost to order a box of 12? I'm really considering Series 9 and 10... :-\

I might go for a box as well.  This wave is looking better all the time...

Jeff is your most likely source.  He'll tell you a ballpark figure, similar to whatever series 8 was.  But he can't give a definite answer for sure because it's never clear if there'll be an increase in shipping or any associated customs fees (since he brings in so many cases) and I don't think we know the exact price from the retailer (Robby.jp) until they are actually shipping.  I think ballpark is around $70-90 for a box.

Depending on how the chases pan out, there may be several of us with extra boxes of 12 from the mega order for Series 9.  Series 10 ordering hasn't started yet.
