What happens if the chase figure is a 1:12 and you onle get one set of 6 out of both boxes of 12  ;)  Stranger things have happened.

You mean what if a box doesn't have a full basic set of 6 because there is a chase in a 1:12 box?  I should still have the Jabba part regardless, so a second box should still give you a second full Jabba.  If that happens I would just buy a spare basic fig from someone else to fulfill the basic set I promised. 

Any takers?  $100 for the basic set of six and a Jabba.  Otherwise I'll probably just order a single box off NCS tonight.

I'm tempted by your offer to get the basic figures, but I think I'll probably have to end up getting a box of 12. I like trying for chases, and I kind of want extra Jabba parts as well (although that depends a little bit on which parts are going to end up being extra). Hopefully we won't be missing a section of Jabba himself or something.

I'm a little surprised about how Medicom is handling this cardboard base issue. You'd think they would understand that their customers would want them.

Chase speculation time:

Oola in Bib Fortuna box (1:48)
Barada in Luke box (1:96)
EV9D9 or 8D8 in C-3PO box (1:96)

I'd be down with all of those.

Chase speculation time:

Oola in Bib Fortuna box (1:48)
Barada in Luke box (1:96)
EV9D9 or 8D8 in C-3PO box (1:96)

I'm sticking with my guesses from earlier:

Easy Chase: 8D8 in the C3P0 Box (or EV-9D9)
1:96 Chase: Malakili in the Luke Jedi Box
1:96 Chase: Ree Yees in the Amanamin Box

I'd love to get a Ree Yees, Squid Head, or Oola in this set.  Klaatu, Weequay, Barada, or Nikto would be okay with me too.  I could live without Malakili, 8D8, or EV-9D9 though.

I'd really like an Oola and a Malakili, personally. I guess that's more of a request than a prediction. ;)

Okay, so I Was digging around on the interweb today and came across these guys:

http://www.amiami.com/shop/?set=english&vgForm=ProductInfo&sku=FIG-COL-1775&template=default/product/e_display.html

Anyone ever hear of or tried amiami before?  They have 20% pre-order off Kubrick S1, which knocks the price down to about $135 plus shipping.  They don't tell you the shipping, so that's a little sketchy, but sure seems like a big discount.  The other drawback is that you can only order 3 boxes, so no master cases.  I think I would still go with NCS if the shipping is unknown, but wanted to see if anyone else knew more about these guys.

I posted this before, but since we suspect the boxes are bigger to accomodate the figure and the build a part, I'd love to see Medicom make an Ephant Mon or Hermie Odle figure as a chase.  More realistically, we'll get characters like Oola, Ree Yees, Barada, Nikto guard or Hammerhead among others.  I'm pretty sure that whatever Medicom gives us in terms of chases from Jabba's Palace I'm going to be happy.

I would love love love to get Hammerhead, but he may have to wait until the ANH wave.

I went with just 1 box, wanted to do the master case but damn grad school has me all messed up. 

As for chases:

Oola
Malakili


Klaatu, Barada, & Niktu would be awesome.

I came across this place last year, another wholesaler that looks good but reading in the FAQ's it did not look to good.
