I'm still hoping we can get a group rate out of NCS this time around. :-\

From NCS:

We checked with our Japanese suppliers last night but they have still not started their preorder campaigns for the Star Wars Deluxe Series 1 Kubricks yet. We'll be glad to keep you posted once we have news. Thanks for checking with us.

Hi there.  Long time reader, so I'm just now joining as it's getting pricey to stay alive.  I'm interested in the group rate.

Thanks for all the good coverage and conversation.  This forum has cost me quite a bit of money ;)

Again?  I think this would be a first.  Since they got a ton of orders from JD though, I hope they seriously consider some kind of partnership with the site.

I think what he means is that he hopes it works out where they are carrying Kubricks again.  It's a nice place to get them considering not many US e-tailers carry them.  That sound about right for what you were getting at Evenflow?

Ah, that makes sense.  I'm fairly certain NCS is carrying them - it's just a question of whether or not we can get a group/wholesale rate.

Hey guys, if you do work out some kind of group buy deal and post the details, I might be interested in taking part.  I needs me my Kubrick Jabba!

I know Jeff has been actively working on this, so hopefully we'll have some more info soon.  It benefits everyone involved to sign up as many JD'ers as possible, so the more the merrier!

What would be the process for this?  Thanks for working on a group rate, I'm eager to sign-up.

Well, NCS would hopefully offer Jeff/JD a wholesale group rate if they order enough cases.  NCS is a distributor, so it's worthwhile for them to offer a lower rate to move a larger number of items.  JD might also offer up some free/discounted ads for NCS, so it's a win-win for both of them.  I'm sure that if/when a deal gets worked out, Jeff will post a thread on here and people can sign up for the boxes they want.  I wasn't around back when they were ordering master cases, but I think that's the gist of the process they used to use.

Well, I'll be ordering a box for sure.   :-\  Too bad the aliens are the more common pieces - I feel like I've gotten a lot of droids recently, especially with the Threepio/R2 2-pack being one of the last new items released.
