That's the best part about Medicom is that you truely have no idea what they will do...  :D

Fantastic!  I really like the Deluxe concept but am really worried about how/if we are getting chases and if they will have parts of the Build a Jabba set.  I can see a lot of people pulling out their hair to get the last two pieces if they can't afford/find the chases with these releases.  I guess we'll find out all in due time.

Really glad that they are releasing details of these though.  I couldn't have waited too much longer for an update on these.

I"m just seeing this now.  Wow, awesome set.  Brent, I don't suppose you're planning on getting it?  If it looks like there's an extra set I am totally in.

I'm I the only one that has a problem with Bib's face?  I think that Medicom did a good job sculpting his head, but has fallen short with the painted face.  I would have liked to have seen them continue with the previous OT trend of sculpting the alien heads/faces and painting the human heads.  I thought that the face paint job on the Series 10 Tion Medon was also sub-par.  I think that they could have done better by sculpting that head as well.

Thoughts?

I'm looking forward to the new set, and Bib looks OK to me. If Mace is any indication, it may come out a little differently anyhow. I would be more excited if there were more aliens and less re-issues (Luke, R2, Chewie, 3PO), esxpecially at higher price-points.
I'm hoping the chases simply have the same "piece" as the figure they replace in the basic set. It seems unlikely that they would make chase pieces, but as Jeff said, Medicom can and will do nearly anything.

So awesome! I cannot wait for these. I wasnt going to say it but since Jeff said it first, i am willing to bet you need the chase figures to finish the set. Either way, I am goingt o be spending alot of money im sure.

I am planning on getting it though I don't yet know what I'm ordering.  Depends on how simple it is.  $700 for a master case - no.  $165 for a box, yes.

So after the closer pics of Jabba i am thinking he is broken up into 7. If i am right, that means one of the chase figures probably has a part. If they do the arms seperately, and they could, that brings us to 9!  :o All chase figures would have a part.

It's all speculation at this point, but I have to agree that looks like (at least) 7 pieces.  Three Jabba pieces, three base pieces, and maybe the pipe/railing as a 7th.  I'd likely go for the common chase anyway, so I'm okay with this, but if it's collect all 9 with two super rares I will not be pleased.   >:(

Yeah, I'm thinking 7 pieces too after looking at the larger pics & frickin' huge boxes. This set is going to be interesting.
