The auction below has a set of six + Jabba for around $90 shipped (although this is with regular shipping and not express). That's less than half what my order for a box of 12 from NCSX would have been, so I decided to just cancel and get it from the guys on ebay. With the bing.com 8% cashback, it's actually under $85 shipped, although I'm going to ask them how much EMS shipping would be.

That's a pre-order auction and I just don't trust them.

Do we know for sure that the figures all have the same Jabba piece?  

That is what Medicom said a while back and based on the auctions and pictures that are out there right now (see the pic back one page - each box shows you the Jabba part you are getting), it sure looks like each Jabba piece is linked to a certain figure.

- 3:12 R2 always comes with Jabba's torso
- 3:12 C3PO always comes with Jabba's head
- 2:12 Luke Skywalker always comes with ?
- 2:12 Chewbacca always comes with ?
- 1:12 Amanaman always comes with ?
- 1:12 Bib Fortuna always comes with dais-left

So, if you buy a box of 12, you'll have:
1x complete Jabba w/dais
1x [mixture of parts] - depends on what parts come with Luke & Chewie
1x tail-less Jabba (Head and torso only)

I'm still filling in the puzzle pieces...    if the "dais-right and tail" pieces come with either Luke or Chewie, then you could end up with a second Jabba in a box of 12... he just wouldn't have the complete dais to sit on.



And, here's another look at Chase Bib...

Well this product is already released, essentially, and they have good feedback so I don't think it's a big deal. But you have to do what you're comfortable with.

I was just looking at the (admittedly bad) picture of the Fett chase that is purportedly part of this line.

The only difference that I can see between this figure and the S1 chase with the red gauntlets is the tone of the plasitc for the figure itself. The S1 figure looks to be a dark grey colour and this one looks almost white. Has anyone else noticed any other differences?

Also any ideas why Medicom are rehashing chases when there are a millon other figures they could give us?

If we are doomed to getting repaints how about a vintage style Yak-Face....I'd rather something like that as opposed to seeing older figures thrown up again.

First ebay (US) auction I've seen for the Bib chase:

$170 + Shipping

Nod to the vintage line or not, this is not worth $183 shipped IMO...

Not even close, at least for me. Heck, you could replicate this chase pretty easily with a regular Bib and some red paint.

You'll also need some cream to repaint the wristbands and blue to repaint the feet.  ;)

It looks like the tail and dais come together? the bag looks joined to me.

So luke either comes with the tail and dais piece or the hooker thing whatever it's called

I think Luke = Tail/Dais and Chewie = railing/hookah

Yes, the tail and dais-right are packed together:



I think Luke = Tail/Dais and Chewie = railing/hookah

That would be excellent if true as you could then at least build a dais-less Jabba w/Hooka out of your box of 12.  And, if you picked up the Chase Fett (amanaman box) and chase Bib (bib box), you could finish it off and have a second complete Jabba.

Might be a sneaky way to get a little money back off your chases by donating the parts they come with to get a "Set of 4 plus Jabba" that you could sell...

Anyone starting to think there will only be two chases?   How long did we have to wait for all three chases to be revealed for S10 and the Boba Fett Collection.  It doesn't feel like it was this long.  Of course, its only been a week.

It does seem like a long wait to see the third one, and I've been searching Japanese auction sites and so forth to see if any have cropped up.

I'm not ready to give up on Chase #3 yet.  I don't think enough volume has been released yet for us to really know everything yet. 

We've seen what, one Red Bib on eBay?  And have we seen anything on Fett beyond the one pic?  I think the N number is really small so far because there is only a small preview quantity that was sold.  Once the big guns get their stock from Medicom, I think we'll see more...  (I hope).
