For those that are interested, the R2 in this set has a different paint job than the recent R2 from the C-3PO/R2 Two Pack - notably the side of the legs, the blue slot on the front (under the dome) and the detail on the front and rear holo projectors. Just sayin'

After seeing these pictures, I actually like that R2 more than I thought I would.  I think R2 and 3PO are both different enough to be worthy of display  ;)

Well that couldn't have been any worse news IMHO with regards to the chases and the display.  So, three 'rare' items with respect to how they are packed in every case.  While I like the display, I will not be hunting that one down since it's nothing more than a 1:48 piece of cardboard.  And with respect to the two chase figures, those are no better than common-chase worthy, repaint crap.  Like BrentS had said previously, I'm considering dropping my order from NCS for a Box of 12 and just picking up a set of 6 + Jabba off ebay.  I'll save the extra money and put it toward still trying to get the Series 10 Tion Medon chase.  Although that too was not the best character Medicom could have chosen for a rare chase, at least it was a brand new figure/mold.

Question: Did the Series 1 chase Fett (or any other) include the ROTJ blaster rifle or is this new DX chase figure the first to include it?

Yes - the red gauntlet Fett chase and the original carded Droids Fett had that gun.

First full set of 9 is up on eBay. $499 from ronnicshop. That's mad money for this set. I can't see either of the two chases going for much more than $100 once the hype dies down...

Excellent.  In a couple of weeks prices should have dropped considerably and I'll step in to get my set.  Passing on the Fett chase but in for the Bib chase.  In time.

Received my e-mail too.  Looks like I'm too late to cancel my order and just get the basic set and Jabba...  Oh well.  Can't wait to get these figures...
