Which is the common chase?

Is the colorless Prototype on of the harder ones?

The "Rocket Fett" figures (J-slot or L-slot) are the 1:96 chases...

11:48 "Vintage Toy" Fett
10:48 "Black & White" Fett
08:48 "Droids" Fett
08:48 "Holiday Special" Fett
04:48 "McQuarrie/Johnston" Fett
04:48 "McQuarrie" Fett
02:48 "Prototype/Vintage Colors" Fett {found in the "Black & White Toy" Fett box}
01:96 "L-Slot Blue Prototype" Fett {found in the "Vintage Toy" Fett box}
01:96 "J-Slot Rocket" Fett {found in the "Vintage Toy" Fett box}


I got the common Chase.

Congrats on the chase find!

Congrats!  Mine box is still out for delivery and will more than likely arrive after I get home from work.

Thanks for the info.
I hope my friend can hook me up with the Chase I'd like.

Well, here's a fun story for Kubie fans...

For anyone not following along, I ordered 2x Series 10 boxes and 2x Fett Series Boxes from NCS for about $600 (one box of each for me and one box of each for Jay).  I've called numerous times to figure out when they will ship and all signs pointed to last week.  Of course, I went on vacation at a cabin up North with no internet access all week.

Anyway, I'm driving home on Saturday and go to pay for gas, only to find my Citibank card won't work.  I immediately thought about my Kubie order, so I called citibank to see what was up.  Sure enough, because the order was over $500 for an internet order, Citibank refused payment to NCS AND put a hold on the card.  ARGH!

On the bright side, I was able to authorize future payments with NCS.  I also resubmitted payment info to NCS on Saturday and got an email on Sunday that it was approved, so hopefully my order shipped out today.  I thought for sure this was going to end up with my order being cancelled.

I got the common Chase. All boxes that I own are open. Here is a list of what I am looking to sell at this time @ $15 each. For the time being I am hanging onto my 2nd chase as possible trade.

1x - Droids
2x - Vintage
1x - Holiday

grats on the 2 chases. I certainly dont want to tell anyone on how to sell their Kubs, but you may want to consider selling them a little cheaper. Those 3 listed are all over Ebay and are barely selling for 9.00 each. Just an opinion.

Understandable - I have debated selling lower, but I would like to get what I have into them back. I am willing to haggle.

Congrats on getting a chase Ryan!  That's a nice score for ordering just one box.  Did you just get one common chase in the box?

Jay - if there are two common chase in either of our boxes, do you want to split same as Series 10?

Congrats on the chases guys.  Part of me wishes I would have taken a chance on getting a chase just from the thrill of opening.  However, in the end, the finances are what they are and I didn't want to take an $80 risk to get a chase.  I'm perfectly happy getting my set of 6 for now.  I should have them by Wednesday I think.

Those of us with six extra pieces to sell for less than cost think you made the correct choice  ;)

There were 2 to my box. Right now I am sitting on the 2nd chase as I would ideally like to just trade it up with somone that got "J" hook that doesn't want it. I am not holding my breath on that, but one can hope!

Not liking my chances for a rare chase this time around, but I'd be psyched to get two commons...

Well, I opened my box when I got home and ended up with no chases.  Can't complain though since I was lucky enough to get the 4-Arm Grievous from Series 10.

So based on what some people reported today, here's the latest:
evenflow - no chases
bigj22 - L-Slot chase
efranks - no chases
I Am Sith - no chases
Jeff - ?
Dan - ?
Outkast34 - no chases
chap - L-Slot chase
knashdx - common chases
Jayson - ?
JediJman - ?

I think that there is still a box with a rare chase floating around as well as two more boxes with common chases.

Jayson and JediJman, if you guys end up getting two boxes with common chases and have extras, I'll definitely take one off your hands if I haven't gone the ebay route by then...

The bummer-age continues.  I have a Yakface for trade for a J- or L-slot if anyone is interested.  Was really hoping Sith would get it, but it's back up for grabs now.

My boxes (yes, plural - boxes  ::)) arrived today from NCSX.  

Even after I placed my order with NCSX, I kept waffling back and forth on what to do with this series.  Last week, my Kubrick gene forced me to play the odds and add a second box to my NCSX order before they shipped.  After all, 50% chance at chases is better than 25% chance, right?   :P


Anyway, we cracked the two boxes open tonight and...

First box = Prototype Blue L-Slot Rocket Fett!  Yay me!  8)



Second box = 2x "Prototype Costume" Fett chase!




Buying two boxes turned out to be a very good move.  :D

Now that I'm 8/9th of the way done, I've got no excuse not to try to track down a J-Slot Fett to go with them...  ;)

Awesome, that's a hell of a pull you got there with your boxes. I'd definitely go after that J-Slot too.
