Don't know if this has been posted here or not, but one of the chases is apparently based on an early Kenner figure with a launching missile.

Nice to see one of our guess confirmed for the chase figures. One down, two to go.  ;)

Nice, a Rocket Fett.  8)



Seems to be the other chase Fett?

Star Wars (precedence) BOBA FETT secret



This one has the Yellow & Red Gaunlets like the vintage Fett chase from Series 1 & a different gun seen in the upper pic.

Man, those chases are sort of boring...  rocket fett is OK  I guess, but another chase is the vintage colors on the B&W sculpt?  Not that exciting since like Dale pointed out they've already done that one, AND there is a better vintage Kenner paint homage already in the set.  Weird...

2 down... 1 to go?  Or do you guys think it will be just 2 chases this time?

I wonder if the vintage colors Fett isn't the common chase?  Kind of a bummer if it is and identical to a previous chase but maybe something else is different enough to make it special (or less special).  I'm stilll expecting one more.  Hoping maybe is the better word.

well, these chases are easy passes for me and I'm happy to not be worried about getting a Box of 12 or Master Case for this set.

Neither of these chases are "must haves" for me, but I certainly won't complain if I luck into them.  Did I miss any updated news over the weekend on release dates?

No... the story is the same as it was the other day - early sales at Parco (not uncommon as it has happened previously), then full release as scheduled after the show is over (6/30 is still the date listed on the Medicom store site).

I was just getting a better look at the differences on the 2nd chase Fett with the green blaster. From what I can see, the gloves are a light brown instead of the red & white finger tips plus the edging & bottom on the boots are light brown compaired with the black on the vintage Fett. It also looks like the pockects that are painted above the knees are different plus no red line under the belt.

Not sure what differences are on the back till we see more pics.

Ahh the fun of collecting Kuby's, this focus will be the death of me.  ;D

I of course want the rocket firing chase, probably the rare one.

Only two have been uncovered and even those are not confirmed.  I'd still bet on a third chase popping up.

Boy these chases are a complete let down to me.  I'm really disappointed that they re-did the Series 1 chase in this wave.  The rocket Fett is a nice nod, but as BrentS pointed out to me today, how is everyone going to display it, backwards :P?  I really hope that there is another chase out there...

I like the rocket Fett but don't care for the other one that much, it's too subtle.  I'd rather have seen them do that vintage proto paint app version from the case insert or even a different Mando character like Jodo Kast or someone (not Jango). 

It would have even been cool to see a Bounty Hunter that wasn't in armor, although they've already done some of the obvious ones like Aurra or Zam.

After waffling back and forth on how I was going to handle this series (1x box, 1x MC, or in pieces via eBay), I finally decided to try my luck with a box of 12 at NCSX.  Since some of you lucked into chases with S10, it seems like a pretty honest place, so we'll see what happens...   :)
