501st or Shocktrooper as a chase figure for sure ... 

Nah, I don't think anyone is agreeing with that idea.

I know that was one of your original guesses as a chase, I was just saying that since there was a link between this set and the Series 9 chase, do you think that puts more behind the possibility that a 501st could be coming in Series 10...  I think a 501st or a Shocktrooper is a logical choice as a common chase since the Clone Trooper will more than likely be a 4:12 figure for Series 10 as well.

If there's a common chase.  N still equals 1, doesn't it?  No idea what or where medicom is going with stuff and they've never been particularly predicatable.  I still think they could do a clone flavors box set pretty easily and slap a 501st, Shock, Gree, Cody, Neyo in it without missing a beat.  So while I think 501st/shock have a shot that's better than average, I never count on anything from Medicom, they're too wacky.

I was browsing at BBTS and saw that the preorder for these had already sold out, which of course made me panic even though I wasn't even sure I wanted them. So I checked ebay and found a "buy it now" for $48 (and $12) shipping. Plus I used the live.com 20% discount deal (google it if you want to know more) to make the final price $38.40 + shipping. I couldn't resist at that price.

Those images posted earlier look quite nice, I must say.

Very good deal.

And now they're here! I saw some duplicates in the package so I was afraid that maybe the seller had given me a random selection instead of a full set, but it turned out that they gave me 20 instead of 16, so there were 4 duplicates (1 stormtrooper, 1 yoda, 1 imperial logo, and 1 boba fett). I'm keeping the stormtrooper so I can have one on either side of Vader, but I'd be interested in selling or trading the others if anyone is interested.

I have them displayed on my "brick wall" that I recently finished. I'll post some pictures of the whole thing once I get my desk cleaned up enough to make it presentable.

Anyway, they're quite nice. They'd be perfect if they were full size and didn't have the keychains, but even so they're very well done, I think.

Those do look nice.  Can you snap a picture next to a regular Kubrick or Bear for the size comparison?

I actually like them more now that I know how relatively small they are.  I might have to pick these up at some point.
