I have not seen a Tion Medon chase on the bay yet, he maybe the tuffer one to get. Will see what he goes for when one pops up.

Still no Tion Medon yet. Lot's of Grievous 4-Arm getting bin'd tho.

My conact in Hong Kong told me that he could get the Grievous chase, but for Tion Medon I'd have to get that one from Japan.  Could these series 10 chases be regional, like the Cantina Band member variations were?

Yes, I suspect Grievous being the Hong Kong version & Tion Medon being the Japanese version.

I've seen Tion bundled with the others in a 9 piece sale, but not individually..........

Overall I'm not too fussed about the 2 chases the Grievous is take it or leave it and Tion would be nice to have but is obscure enough for me to not be that fussed about picking one up.

Commander Gree, however, is already on his way  :)

Well, just sighted a Tion on ebay. And of course it's from Honorius charging a rediculous price of $277.80

I think we just need to be patient and the prices will come down just like Series 9.

Honorous is a business man, plain and simple.  Like Dale's been saying, not many Tion's yet and I'm sure Honorius is all too aware of that.  He'll start high and stay high until he has a reason/competition to bring his prices down, pretty standard for him...

Yeah, Honorius usually eventually comes down. Since it looks like Hong Kong is getting Grievous and Japan is getting Tion I'm hoping more will show up as more Series 10 shows up in Japan.

If it holds true than Tion should be in our case from Japan.
The Gree looks great, going to have to keep him.

Good ol Honorius, I expected it to be high but wow. All in time the price will come down, heck stuff that went for uber coin came down in price. I'm surprised he didn't post a pic of multiple Tion's.  :D

I do have some good news tho, I got an e-mail from HLJ. My MC is on the way, should be here sometime next week.  ;D

So this is how the price worked out as per xe.com but the actual cost on my CC will be the final tally plus if I get hit with customs.  :-\

1 box of 12: 11,172 yen or about $113.870 US.
4 boxes of 12: 44,688 yen or about $455.524 US.
Shipping for the MC: 5,400 yen or about $55.0445 US.
Total damage: 50,088 yen or about $510.287 US or $568.2955 CDN.

Yah, My crack-brick addiction is going full speed this week.  Do you have any idea whether NCS gets their stuff from HK vs. Japan?  I'm not expecting to get a rare chase with just one box, but you never know.
