I have no interest in the prequel series but the case reveals are always entertaining  ;)

Hopefully we'll have no series 8 chase controversy with this series.

Yeah i know thats how it's supposed to be, but i changed it on purpose

Back on topic, I can't believe how much the Kubrick sets have jumped in price. Its insane.

It makes no sense- even at Ebay prices the buyer would  be wayyy better off picking up a master case and the (assuming old patterns come back with this series) the one chase they need. And all of these sets of 9 from series 8 and 9 going for sky high prices hasn't altered the price of what a set of 6 goes for. So assuming a set of 6 would have run about $50, that's $470 spent on just the chases.

How might one go about obtaining these "master" cases?  Is there a website that offers them?

There are 2 sites that I know of. HLJ (HobbyLinkJapan) has Star Wars #9 up for preorder $99.17 per box of 12 so about $396.68 for a MC plus shipping but unknown on the shipping cost till they have them instock.

BigBadToyStore also has a preorder up for a MC for $419.99 & you can check the shipping cost once added to the cart before the final check out.

Both sites will take credit card & Paypal.

Thanks DSJ, would you not have to order 8 total boxes to get the "master case" of all the figures (including the 1/96 chase)?

Are the 1/96 chases random across master cases, so that you couldn't, say, pick up 2 and expect to get a 1/96 chase?

A MC should contain 1 sub chase (1/48) & 1 uber chase (1/96) if that's the way it's been panning out. If you get 2 MC's then yeah, you should get 2 sub chases & 2 uber chase figures but the uber might be the same depending where the MC came from (Japan/Hong Kong).

From what happened with series 8 when Jeff got his uber MC shipment, this may not be the case.

here is the latest update on the mega-order:

Master Case [Jeff] - Jar Jar, Aurra Sing
Master Case [Scott] - Jar Jar, Aurra Sing
Master Case [I Am Sith] - Jar Jar
Master Case [BrentS] - Jar Jar, Aurra Sing
Master Case [gorkoracing] - Jar Jar, Aurra Sing
Master Case [rdm5777] - Jar Jar, Aurra Sing
Master Case [SPLIT]:
  Box of 12 [Dan] - Jar Jar   8)
  Box of 12 [Dan] - No Chases
  Box of 12 [Jayson] - Aurra Sing  8)
  Box of 12 [Jayson] - No Chases
Master Case [SPLIT]:
  Box of 12 [Jon] - No Chases
  Box of 12 [Outkast34] - No Chases
  Box of 12 [skyward72] - No Chases
  Box of 12 (Brian G.) - Aurra Sing

If you want a complete set with chase figures then best to go to the bay & pay the $500. plus or get 1 MC & hope you get the 1 sub & 1 uber chase then hunt down the other uber chase figure.  It's a crap shoot.  :-\

OK, thanks.  I guess there is just no easy way of ensuring that you get all the chases (or, at least, without a truly massive overhead expenditure).  If I ever decide to rob a bank or invent a newer, better heart or something, I may go ahead and get all the Star Wars chases.
