Wow, this kind of took me by surprise. I'm even more surprised that it's essentially another "series" release and not a boxed set or something. I'll have to figure out a way to get these. You'd think that having in-laws in Japan would be a big advantage, but there are still a lot of issues that have to be worked out for them to be able to help me get releases like this. One problem is that they don't like to use their credit card online and most places won't accept a foreign card. And I don't like to burden them by asking them to do a bank transfer or something.

Yeah, sure it will. It's a long wait till it's released in June.

As to be expected, someone bin'd that auction. I can see the price jump now for every bin.  :-\

Wow, how did I miss the posts on this set earlier?  I usually don't cave on expensive Kubies, but I may have to make an exception for this one.  Anyone find a source to order from other than Ebay?

I thought we found a source with the toys-chamelon but the shipping they wanted was just absurd.

Yes absurd shipping plus they wanted a Paypal payment before they actually received the products.

HLJ has the Boba Fett Collection up for preorder for 14,592 yen for a box of 12pcs. So that's about $160.32 US or for a MC, $649.28 US showing a June release date.

Preorder this item by Mar. 3 to get it for 5% off the regular price of 15,360 yen!

I think I will just get a box of 12, the prices are just way too high for anything more.  :-\

Yikes, that is high for a box of 12...  If I'm not able to get my own box of 12, I'd be happy to take your extras off your hands DSJ ;)

BTW, I am NOT pleased that you changed your avatar.  I think that I've told you on more than one occasion that it was my favorite one on this site.  Can I please get a moment of silence...

I heard from my friend in Japan today and he indicated that Medicom/Blister informed him that a box of 12 does not guarantee two full sets  :o  Now, I don't know what that exactly means.  It could mean they're simply going with a mixed ratio to assure a certain Fett version is more abundant or it could mean there will be chase figures.  I cannot promise it is absolutely true, just relaying the message I was given.

Not good at all, $160. is a lot if you may not get 2 full sets. Hate like hell to get stuck with any at these prices the Kuby's are going. Might be best just to wait till the sets released & go the bay route & if there is any chase figs then track them down.  :-\
