Now that we have enough lead time and most folks are pretty satisfied with NCSX, I think I'll try to drop them a note and see if they could offer us some sort of bulk discount?  Maybe I could try to offer them some free advertising at JD to get us a better deal...  >:D

That's a really solid idea.  I would be tempted to buy multiple boxes if there were a JD discount associated with the purchase.  I'm sure it fell on deaf ears, but I mentioned JD in feedback back to NCS after my S10 and Fett Series figures arrived, suggesting that a number of us on JD bought from them via word of mouth in the forums.  I hope they go for it - it's certainly a partnership that makes sense!

Great idea Jeff.  I hope it pans out.

Depending on the price structure, I'd be interested.

I'm sure they would do something like that, it seems like a lot of us bought our series 10 and/or fett cases from them.

I think it's pretty clear from the info Medicom has released that we're getting 1x figure and 1x Jabba piece in each box.  The Medicom website clearly (well, as clear as broken English-Japanese translations can be) says:

"When the bonus part which belongs to each box is combined 'JABBA THE HUTT (TM)' you complete!"

A bit better translation would be:

"Combine the bonus parts that come in each box to complete Jabba the Hutt."

The way it's written in Japanese implies to me that you will be able to complete Jabba without worrying about finding the right parts, but it's hard to be 100% sure.

$100 for a basic set of six?  Can't decide if that's high priced or not given the BAF parts.   :-\

I think that's pretty fair when averaging out the price to include a complete Jabba w/dias.

Yeah, that's true.  I'm trying to gauge that versus the box or master case prices though.  If the Fett Series was about $160 per box, are these things going to be $200 per box?  If so, a set of 6 for under $100 is a steal.

Japanese price =

1,344 yen is aprox $14.62 US.

So the basic Japanese retail for 6 figures would be about $88.  Based on that fact, $100 for a set of six, which will invariably include short-packed figures, really isn't that unreasonable for a pre-order.

If the Jabba thing works out to a pretty standard arrangement (ie standard pack-in pieces, etc) then I'm sure the price for a set of 6 may come down a bit once things are actually released and people undercut prices just to move excess product from MC purchases.

Could be a month or 2 till this set shows up on HLJ & hopefully NCS...

From NCS today:

Quote
Hi, yes we will stock the upcoming Kubrick Star Wars Deluxe Series 1 and we should begin preorders within the next 2 months. Since the toys will be released in the summer of 2010, Medicom is expected to start their preorder campaign in January. Thanks.

Right on the mark Dale.

Thought I'd give this a bump since January is now upon us and at least according to NCSX, Medicom should be starting their pre-order campaign this month.  Bring it on!

I guess I'm kind of surprised that the regular price (16,128 Yen) has not gone up since the Boba Fett collection considering they are now including the BAJ (Build A Jabba) pieces in this release.  That being said, I'm hoping that NCSX will list theirs close to the $169 they were charging last year for the BFC.
