Okay, I need these. Just these! Then I'm done. :)

Well, okay, maybe some of the older ANH ones. And the bounty hunters. And then I'm done! ::)  :-\

I'd be down for a Master Case whenever we get the order together. I'm glad for the break though to save money up for other things.

Yeah, I was noticing that price increase too.

S8/S9 = 924 Yen MSRP
S10 = 1029 Yen MSRP

That's a little over 11% jump in the MSRP.  It probably means that by the time we jump through the hoops and get them here in the USA, we'll be looking at a potential 20-25% increase in price from S8-9.   :'(

Yikes!  I guess the 7 month wait between now and the release is to allow all of us time to raise the $500 it's probably going to end up costing us for a MC :P  I wonder if people will be opting to just try their luck on ebay when this series is released and jump on one of the BIN auctions for all 9 figures instead of getting a MC?  I for one will not just because I want the extra Clones, etc. for customs...

Yeah, that sure is a bit of a price jump. Oh well, save those pennies! Just hope the chase figures don't go through the roof on the bay.  :-\

Unfortunately Blister does not ship international. Will have to wait to see what Robby does but the with what happened with the Indiana/Bearbrick 2pk not sure.  :-\

May have to gamble going back to HLJ, a little slower getting them but I have not had a problem with them thus far.

For those not keeping track of the Robby.jp saga over in the Indy area, it appears that Robby.jp is going out of business.

No Robby.jp = no group mega order.  :(

I will look around and see if I can find another wholesaler, but right now it looks pretty bleak... :-\

I'm glad that I was able to get in on Series 8 & 9 when I did, and thanks again Jeff for providing the mega orders.  If you're able to find another distributor, I'm definitely still interested in a Series 10 MC.

Man that's a bummer. I was hoping to get in on the group order for the next OT wave. Would it be possible to order directly from Medicom? You guys were up to what, a dozen master cases or so an order? That's got to be close to the order of some smaller retailers.
