@ tiny--I also won a stealthtank auction, hehe. Got a set of six w/ AT-ST parts; I'm pretty jazzed!  ;D
You outbid me in the last few seconds on that one :(  but I won the other lot :D

Someone got an absolute steal with the entire case for $100.

Oops, haha. I guess it's karma that I lost on the background, then. Glad you got the other one, though. I briefly considered bidding on the chase trooper, but decided against it in the end (think it went for like $110.  And I placed a futile bid for his Mace Windu, but to no avail.

Yeah, I saw that someone had gotten that case for $100--pretty crazy. And individual figures went for like $3.00 and even 1 penny. Someone could've picked up Luke, Han, Chewie and Snowtrooper for under $20/shipped, I bet. But they wouldn't have gotten the cool ones, though...*evil/greedy chuckle*

I do hope you mean box rather than case.  Case = 4 boxes.

A box of 12 for under $140 shipped is a steal, considering most foreign sellers are selling for $189 shipped for 12 or $110 for the basic six.  So, a box of 12 for $110 shipped is incredibly insane, and that would be the lucky bastard that gets the 1/96, right?

Anyhow, I appreciate stealthtank alerting the community here, and in the future would gladly pay $140 shipped for DX3 if you want to cut the middle (ebay) man out of it.

I got my box from NCSX today and I'm sad to say like the last two boxes I have purchased no chases.

Bummer, I to no chases from them as well.   

Looks like we're 0 for 3 so far this time around.  Nothing but basic figures in my box too.

My DX2 set arrived this weekend! Gotta say, this is such a good looking set--especially Leia and the Snowtrooper. Anyone else struggle trying to put the damn AT-ST together? Snapping on the stupid side guns was ridiculous--they made Salacious Crumb's tail seem like a cakewalk.   ;)

I opened my Box of 12 tonight.  I came up Empty on chases as well  :(  I thought I had hope when I noticed that one of the two Luke boxes had been inverted in my case but nope still just a luke.  Still, I'm very pleased with all 6 figures in this wave.

Got my set of 8 today.  I really like this set, but I had a lot of trouble with the body parts:
-5 of them had too shallow of a right foot hole to completely cover the peg in the acrylic cases (Luke, Rebel, and Chewie were ok).  I had to use a 7/64" drill bit to deepen the hole so they would stand flat on the base.  
-AT-ST driver, R-3PO, and Leia had floppy bodies / leg articulation.  
-Chewie's right hand was frozen/glued in place and wouldn't turn.

I liked the trays the chase figures came in, to protect their antennas (helmet, backpack).

AT-ST is okay, but I really wish it was a Taun-taun.  :)
