I also didn't get any chases from my NCSX box, but oh well. I have a 2 extra Vaders, 1 Grievous, and 2 Clone troopers (although I might keep those).

The 490 included shipping to me. I bought from a toy seller that bought a fairly substantial size order and his shipping costs averaged out. Having said that I think I got a pretty good deal all things considered. The BF collection is going way up though, it will cost 630 for a MC of those!!!

So no one has gotten a rare chase from NCSX yet?  Hope that means they've set one aside for Jay or me!   ;D

Somebody asked me to take a comparison shot of the old and new vaders, so I thought I'd post it here. The new one looks to be almost an entirely new sculpt (compare the shape of the cloak, the ribs on the gauntlets, and the saber, for example). Although it is of course similar to the old one. It's noticeably shorter though. I like the new one better except for the red face.

Hey, I already said you were having a lucky couple of months, so I jinxed you way back then.  I've now effectively unjinxed you.   ;)

I take it you're excluding me in that 'hope' because I swooped the Veers from Jayson last week...  I guess I'll know in less than a day whether or not I have anything other than the basic 6 to show from my box.

Hunh?  I excluded you because A.) Jay's box is part of my order and B.) I didn't realize anyone else was still waiting on a box from NCSX.  Good luck to youon getting a box with chase figs as well.  Did you guys find out whether there was just one Veers or not?  Pretty poor handling by Brian's IMO.

Well guys.
I'll have allot of extras and some chases to sell, my boys (and myself) can't eat the cost of this series by splitting it 3 ways.
I'm not going to leave my friend hanging since they gave me lots of help in the past with things from Japan and would never cheat me, so if anyone is interested in a Gree or whatever 1:96 I get drop me a line.
I'll also have one if not two basic sets of six with an extra Clone thrown in and a few singles depending on what comes in the case.
Still doing B N B as well.(even though I ain't drinking)

Looks like Ningyoushi got their shipment today too:

4-Arm Grievous Chase

$140 with free shipping.  There are ones on ebay right now for about $125-$130 shipped, so this isn't the best deal to be had right now.

Gree Chase

$35 with free shipping.  This is about average for this figure, maybe a few dollars less.

Brian's Toys got their shipment and it looks like their chase prices have gone up a bit since Series 9:

Tion Chase

$199 plus shipping.  Yikes!  That's a little hard to swallow...

Gree Chase

At $40 this one is at least closer to the prices on ebay and what they were charging for other Kubrick common figures...
