Very nice, now you just need Zam Wesell & all is good.  ;)

Indeed and hunt goes on....


Just a quick question, did you only get 1 Yellow Clone in your case or did you get two?  Want to make sure early reports of 2:48 Clone Commanders is verified...

Also, don't forget the green clones...  And we are getting a red clone in the next 5-pack...

Got this as a set of 8pcs, but as told by the seller, yellow clone ratio do appears as 2:48.

Oh yeh, how can I forget the green clone:P and thanks for the heads up.

Congrats on the chases, but I'm kind of surprised that there was only one Clone Commander in your MC and 5 Dooku's...

Got this as a set of 8pcs, but as told by the seller, yellow clone ratio do appears as 2:48.

When I opened that box and found 2x Dooku instead of just one, I wasn't sure what was going to happen... lots of thoughts popped into my mind - is that how they pack Zam?  is it an oops?  Did I get screwed this time?  What the heck?!?!

When I opened the Dookus though and they were both just Dooku and not Zams, I was all "uh-oh" and the worrying kicked into high gear...    :-\

I guess it sucks if I was "supposed" to get 2x Yellow Clones in my MC and only got one, but at least I got the one so I don't have to chase him.  Now I just have to track down Zam before all of you guys find out you need her too...  :P

Congrats Jeff.  :)

Yes, very interesting this series will be once members get there MC's & see what the ratios are & what chases are found.

I am very excited but also nervous. If i get another master case with no rare chase i am goingt o flip out.  :-[

I hope you do good this time around Dan, keeping my fingers crossed.

Boy, those thoughts sound vaguely familiar...  I seem to recall them from about three months ago.

It kind of stinks though that you didn't end up with an extra Anakin, because at least you would have had three complete sets of 6...  Now you have 3 sets of 6 with three extra 'apparent' 1:12 figures...

I have a bad feeling that the case ratios for Series 9 are going to be as screwy as Series 8.

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...

2 Yellow Clone Troopers in one box.

As per this auction:

KUBRICK 9 SET 9 CHASE ZAM SHAAK TI

Quote
Yellow Clone Trooper (CHASE) (1:48)
Shaak Ti (CHASE) (1:96)
Zam Wesell (CHASE) (1:96)

That is the only auction I can find right now giving chase ratios.  :-\

For those interested in the Series 9 Scorecard:

Actually, that's not really accurate anymore...  it looks like this now:

Series 9 Master Case #1 - Jeff = 1x Yellow Clone; 1x Shaak Ti
Series 9 Master Case #2 - Scott
Series 9 Master Case #3 - I Am Sith
Series 9 Master Case #4 - Brent S
Series 9 Master Case #5 - Gorkoracing
Series 9 Master Case #6 - Dan
Series 9 Master Case #7 - Outcast34
Series 9 Master Case #8 - rdm5777
Series 9 Master Case #9 - Adrian
Series 9 Master Case #10 - SPLIT
  2x Box of 12 - skyward72
  1x Box of 12 - Jon
  1x Box of 12 - {pending}
Series 9 Master Case #11  -  SPLIT
  2x Box of 12 - jedijaybird
  1x Box of 12 - JediJman
  1x Box of 12 - [Brian G]

Brian dropped his order from 2x boxes to just 1 box due to price increases for Series 8/9, so I moved him to Box #11 since they are all local MN guys...  that freed up his two boxes in #10 which have been re-assigned.

Yellow Clone Trooper (CHASE) (1:48)
Shaak Ti (CHASE) (1:96)
Zam Wesell (CHASE) (1:96)

That is the only auction I can find right now giving chase ratios.  :-\

If Yellow Clone is 2x Per Master Case, then shouldn't they list him as 2:48... why do they have him listed at 1:48?   ???

That Jeff is a big if I'm afraid. We only know that the Yellow Clone is 2:48 only because someone over at KN found 2 Yeller dudes in a box of 12. A fluke, maybe.
Also take in mind the sellers on the bay are not always right but then again...:-\  Heck some of the sellers can't even spell Wesell right.  ;)

Guess we will have to wait it out & see what the other members get in there MC's to figure this out.

When I looked up the eleven tracking numbers, 9 of the 11 boxes were already in Chicago customs as of last night! :)

The mailman just dropped off four of the eleven Master Cases.  No idea where the other seven are though...    ???

I guess they are somewhere between Chicago and here... I'll have to check the tracking numbers after lunch and see.


Another visit from the mailman this afternoon (this time it was the "express mail" postman, earlier was my regular mailman).

He had five more Master Cases for me... and some bad news.  :-\

The last two Master Cases were "missent".  They are attempting to retrieve them, but they have no ETA.   :o

When I check the tracking info it says...

Missent, July 13, 2008, 6:08 pm
*Your item was misrouted. The error has been corrected and every effort is being made to deliver it as soon as possible.
Processed, July 13, 2008, 5:47 pm, CINCINNATI, OH 45275

Cincinatti?   ???

I hope nothing bad happens to them on their trip back to MN otherwise there will be some very unhappy folks out there...  :-\

So before I start getting really stressed out about this, what does this mean for those of us that have ordered?  If you don't get these last two you don't send any out, you choose who gets one, you put names in a hat and draw for the lucky winners?!  Starting to get a little shortness of breath and the pulse is starting to rise...

I'll offer up that my case can be one of the missent ones as I am in no hurry to get mine and am VERY low on funds at the moment due to waiting for a guy to send me his part of a deal that should have been here last monday.  The longer I can wait to pay for mine the better at the moment but I do plan on getting my case still.

I was getting really worried again because i opened my box starting with what you had listed at #4 but got nothing. everything was pretty much reverse.


Here is how things worked out for my Master Case:

Box 1 2 Yellow Clones

Box 2 Shaak Ti

Box 3 (nothing)

Box 4 (nothing)

So 2 yellow clones for me. Not sure if its a fluke or not but it should help in the fund so get myself a Zam.
