A basic set of 6 with no jabba has appeared on the bay. $115 is still more than I want to pay for a set which includes jabba! anyone think the price will drop once they're released officially? I hope so.

*edit*

The reason there is no jabba is beacuse the seller has put it up for sale by itself. $142 just for jabba!!!!!!!

Those prices are ridiculous...I'd say anyone who pays that'll be kicking themselves in a months time. Once the hype dies down I think these will be cheaper.

Unless I'm drinking one night when reading about these, I'll wait a month or two before buying a full set with Jabba.  I can order from HLJ if I want and pay about $160 for a box, so why would I pay more than that for a full set?  I'd really rather go along the line you're thinking, just over $100 for set of six plus Jabba and think that's easily doable. 

RED CAPE BIB IS AWESOME!!!!! I am passing on Fett though, i have enough of him.

My feeling exactly.  Bib is a fantastic nod; Fett's overdone.

When do people think the master cases will start arriving? I note they were due to ship on the 20th...I really want to see some better shots of these figures (particularly Jabba...).

Good question.  Has anyone heard from NCS?

It usually takes two-three weeks from the Parco show to us getting our Kubricks.

Here's an example from last year (the Boba Fett Collection):
- Parco Show sold "preview" product starting 6/19
- Japanese retail got their stock around 6/25
- NCSX started shipping orders around 6/30-7/1

So, if I had to guess, it may be another week before NCS gets there stuff and starts shipping it...

Box of 12:


Back of boxes, shows the exact part breakdown:


I'm still lost...
How many Jabbas are in a boix of 12
1?
If there are 2 then paying over $100 for him and the set is silly...if not then I can see the price going up.

Since certain parts seem to come with certain figures, I think there will be one complete Jabba, and some extra Jabba parts (not sure which).

I think this is right based on the case breakdown:
You will be 2 parts short of a 2nd Jabba with each case of 12.  You need to get an extra Bib and Amanaman to complete the 2nd Jabba.  You will be 4 parts short of a 3rd Jabba with each case of 12.  You will need to get another 4 figs (not C3P0 or R2).

Kubrick insanity.

So how many jabbas to a Master Case?
This would let us figure out a fair price...I think...

4 Jabbas to a master case with 4 other Jabbas missing 2 pieces each. 8 potential Jabbas.

I think.

Do we know for sure that the figures all have the same Jabba piece?  Could be different Jabba pieces in each figure box to ensure 2 Jabba's per box.  That would seem to make more sense than having a shortage of some pieces, but it is Medicom.  :P
