Man, this is starting to get complicated...

Understatement of the year. 
- how will they pack the Jabba's Palace Display Base?
- will the Jabba pieces be packed randomly or assigned to certain figures?
- how many Jabba pieces are there (4, 6, 7, 9, 12?)
- will there be chase Jabba pieces?

So many questions, so little info...  June is so, so far away. :(

Wow, I think I'll be fine just using the POTF2 pop up diorama for this instead and avoid that headache altogether. It looks like that is what it was based off of in part anyway - right down to the Rancor in the floor.

I do think it's a tribute to that, although using the POTF2 diorama directly with the Kubricks might not work that well. The scale will be off, and you'd have to remove the cardboard throne. Still, I suppose you could make it work. They aren't expensive.

BTW I'm starting to think that the Jabba parts may not come with the individual figures at all, and are just going to come as one set per box of 12.

We'll see, but I'm still thinking they will be in the boxes.  Seems silly to me to call them "Deluxe Figures" if the BAF parts are just a seperate part of the packaging.  Anyone know what people who pre-ordered off Ebay are supposedly getting?  I thought these were advertised as basic set of 6 + Jabba, but that might be hard to deliver on.

Was there a POTF2 Hoth pop-up diorama background?  Might be worth the speculation now that they will be releasing one of those with DLX S2...

No, just this and the Cantina diorama.

That.

I hope that we get some clarification on what's involved (via Jeff's questions) since I want the Hoth one and am curious what's the best route to go.

Well, you're in the best shape because we'll know answers to most of these questions by the time you can order any Hoth figures.  Per Dan's post, I would suggest just getting a basic set of 6 online as the cheapest way to go if you don't care about chases.

Just to make sure I don't miss out on these I ordered a box from HLJ along with the 400% C-3PO.  If NCS comes through for us and the prices are comparable, I'll cancel and order from them.  Couldn't pass up the C-3PO for sure...

One cardboard diorama per Master Case is just insane.  What the hell is Medicom doing?

NCS has their pre-order up:

NCS Deluxe Series 1

Again, it's higher than HLJ at $175.90, but the domestic shipping will probably end up being less.  Decisions, decisions...
