I kinda hope I'm wrong, since if so, I'd want two, to display both ways, like I have with Rocky, Skiff Guard Lando, and Leia as Bouschh, TigerMask masked and unmasked, etc.

How Many Yoda and Jangos?

CB

As for Zam, i was thinking and hoping the same thing for the alien head. Lets hope it turns out to be true.

This order was a small one for me & the 1st time I did not order a master case since series 1, I only ordered 2 boxes as a local collector & I are involved & I get to open them all. If I get any chase figs fine, if not then I'll be on the hunt for them. Next week should be another Kuby week from the postman.  ;D

And arrived the boxes have.  8)

I was not expecting to get any chase figures with just the 2 boxes but yep, I scored. 2 Yellow Clone Troopers from the one box.  8)

The other box had no chase figures so the hunt is on for Zam & Shaak Ti, I think I did pretty damn good.  :)

Box 1:
Clone, Clone, Jango.
Obi, Jango, Dooku.
Jango, Yellow Clone, Yoda.
Anakin, Yoda, Yellow Clone.

Box 2:
Clone, Yoda, Clone.
Jango, Clone, Jango.
Dooku, Obi, Clone.
Jango, Clone, Anakin.

The 2nd box has 5 Clones & 1 Yoda.  ???

About this Zam Wessel chase, I know we're not getting another spare head with the alternate alien face.  But does anyone know if the alien face is painted on the back of the figure's head?  like the Rocky Kubricks have the busted up faces on the back sides of the head.

If it is it might make it an expensive chase!
Some people might want it both ways.

Strange...  Medicom's QA has seriously gone screwy the last two series - missing chases, odd box counts, strange case packs, etc.   :-\

Congrats on the two Yellow Clones... it's looking more and more like my "1 Yellow Clone" box was a dud.  :(

Despite my protestations I actually did buy a box of this series from Robby.  I got a box with two yellow clones in it.  My box had a different set up from Dale's too:

Front row: Yoda Yoda Anakin
Second row: Yellow Clone Jango Dooku
Third row: Obi Yellow Clone Jango
Back row: Jango Clone Clone

So add that to the mix and that Jeff's box was off from the norm.

Shaak Ti has been acquired so now it's down to Zam.  :-X  Also got a Maul & Sith Speeder today.   8)

Damn, these crackbricks! I'm insane!  ;D

Dang Brent, I thought you were not going to the darkside of these Kuby's. Nice score on the single box man & strange set up also.

Yeah  :-[  Dark side indeed.  I actually got a box of series 8 too, but haven't gone after any of the chase figures.  Mostly because of price and I think these are going to drop significantly in the not so distant future, but I can live without Jedi anyway.  JarJar?  If someone gave me one I'd keep it, otherwise blech. 

The only regret I have is not getting the box set with the red clone in it.  Stupid rainbow clones.  But I like having Qui-Gon, Maul and the Jango and Obi in this set are nice.  Actually I like all of Series 9, Series 8 not so much. 

And I was due for the chase after missing in series 1 and 2 (Indy....) plus 8.  I was more concerned about getting the Zam or the Shaak Ti because I didn't really want them, but I lucked out and got what I wanted.  Yay me. 

Up to date for now for me.  Just waiting on the Series 10 announcement from Robby and I'll order a box of that.  If they go back to OT after that, I'll go back to master cases.  Got my carded set of Series 2 as well and hoping on the shadow guard.

I don't see how any of us will be able to keep a sealed box of 12 for resale with these crazy case ratios!

Anyway, nice score on the multiple chases guys.

Had my first box opening tonight and got one of the four duds  :( but Jayson was good enough to swap his extra Yellow clone for my whitey so all is good.  ;D  The 4th box that went to someone else (Brian?) had the Shaak Ti. 

Obi-Wan and Jango are amazing - I even had to buy up a spare Obi.  Thanks again to Jeff for ordering and organizing all our purchases!
