Because this is probably a one time deal and the chance of a second series is not going to happen

What?  I'm saying why didn't they just say this is Series #12 and here are the 6 boba fett figs associated with series #12.  Just seems like that would make more sense if they are going to release this similar to a standard series of figures.

Nice work Jeff.  "Everyday attention"?  Pestering the folks at Medicom, someone is?  LOL.

They have done the same thing in the past (most memorable to me is the Oscar and Elmo Kubricks)

Oscar and Elmo are good examples.  Like Scott said, they were not Sesame Street Series 3 or 4 , they were just "Sesame Street Oscar" or "Sesame Street Elmo", but they were handled just like the previously two SS lines.

I think it's the same thing for Fett.  It got a standard Kubrick Series number (No.246), but it isn't called "Star Wars Series 11" because it's not technically SW Series 11 - it's just "Boba Fett Collection".

It may have been less confusing for folks if they had called it SW Series 11, but for whatever reason they chose to keep it separate as it's own thing.

Maybe "Series 12" will be a Droids series then  ;)




yeah, I know, Clone Wars would make way more sense.

I looked up a couple feedback links I could find on them and they appear legit.  It would be nice to have another cheaper option for these figures (boxes of 12 and MC's) other than BBTS in the US.  I've never seen Toy Tokyo or Ningyoushi stock these in anything larger than sets of 6.  I took a chance and pre-ordered boxes of 12 of both Series 10 and the BF Collection.  Fingers crossed...


Ive ordered from NCX twice-- both my cases came quick-- one had a Shakk TI , the other a Jar Jar.

I would recommend them-- although the last time I ordered a case was only 124.--- Damn Dollar

Good deal, thanks for the info.  As far as the price goes, Series 10 is only $127, so that's only a $3 increase over Series 9, which is actually not that bad.  For the BF Collection, I thought the initial price from Medicom was significantly higher than the Series 10 price, so I can understand why that's ringing up $30 more than Series 10.  Either way it's still significantly less than what BBTS is charging for their pre-order.

I haven't ordered my own Kubricks in a while but I took a shot at this one and put in an order for the Boba Fett box as well.  Crossing my fingers...

Well, if they do end up having chases with this release, with this many JDer's pre-ordering from them, there's a good chance at least one of us will end up with a chase.  Thanks again for posting the info DSJ.

I just ordered a box of the Boba Fetts from NCSX in New York. I only want the single set, does anyone else want my duplicates?

So I am Sith and I are sitting here at work (really we are working) debating whether or not there will be chases in this series.  So what do people think?  As best as we can tell there is no indication that we'll get chases.  However, when is the last time Medicom ever released a series that didn't have chases at all??  Thoughts?
