Yeah, based on the AT-ST being the build item, I'd say an AT-ST Driver is a good chase guess, same goes for a Kenner-inspired Brown Hoth Rebel based off the Hoth Luke figure (we all know how Medicom loves the Kenner stuff).

A probot, wampa, or TaunTaun would be fun chases... but man o man would they be EXPENSIVE if they were rare than 2:48.   :-\

FX-7 would be neat to go with the 2-1B we already have.  Guess we wait and see...

Here's all I could get out of Medicom:

Yeah, when it comes to chases, Medicom is super secret.  I have chatted with the Medicom guys many times and that is the one constant - first rule of Kubrick club = NO talking about chases! ;) 

I think the only chases that were ever revealed early were leaked by Star Wars Insider mag (series 6), and they haven't had a Kubrick feature since then. :P

That would be awesome to get a Wampa :o!  If they did that then I could definitely see a Wampa-damaged Luke as the other chase.  A Hoth rebel makes the most sense as the common chase considering the number of Snowtroopers we are getting, but based on the dio picture, could there be two variants (white and brown head gear) like the Cantina Band members of Series 2?  Only time will tell, but the wait is killing me!

Chases:
General Veers/AT-AT Commander (1:96)

I wonder how different this one will be compared to the previous one?

I was just guessing with my post. I was hoping for a Veers wearing is AT-AT Commander armor as the other was just in his plain officer outfit.

I see.  Oops!

Maybe I'm just late to the game with this one, but I noticed today that NCS has their pre-order up for this set.  Same price as the Series 1 box of 12:

Star Wars Deluxe Series 2 Pre-Order

*edit*
The description says that this was added to their site on April 23, so about a week and a half ago...

I would think a KubrickNation member could find a little better price than that.  ;)

Assuming you still have these available when it gets closer to the release date you know I'll be ordering them through you...  Best price I've found with the 'discount'...

Just can't swing the up-front payment right now.

I wanted to make sure everyone knew NCS had their's available since a lot of members here go through them.

Well, it's August, where are my Hoth Kubricks!?!

(update: I just noticed the pre-order says to ship on or around the 25th)

Chase guesses:

General Rieekan in Luke box
Imperial naval officer (black suit) in Snowtrooper box

Chases:
Rebel Deck Officer (1:48)
General Veers/AT-AT Commander (1:96)
FX-7 (1:96)  :P

Well, taking into account the chases from DX series 1, I'd say my earlier predictions are way off. Whatever the outcome, I just hope one of them isn't another Fett.  :P

If indeed the R-3PO and Leia are the one-counts with chases, then maybe I'd say FX-7 and Torryn Farr as chases.

I'm still holding out hope that Leia isn't a one-per. And if they are coming out this month, I might have to have one of my fellow 'sota guys keep some extras for me while I'm away on vacation.

Hoth Rebel Trooper (1:48)
Hoth Luke Skywalker - Battle Damaged (1:96)
FX-7 Droid (1:96)


Here's who I'd much rather find, but probably a snowball's chance on Tatooine:

Veers in armor or an AT-ST Driver would be sweet!

Given the Bib, I think a Battle Damaged Luke is still a good possibility.  Since neither S1 Chase was all new, I'm less hopeful about the Rebel Soldier, but maybe Veers in Armor is more likely...Can't wait to find out!

I prefer this.  Variants of the basic figure or repeat chase figures is actually a blessing in disguise -- if you are not a completlist.  What if it's Johnny Depp as a stormtrooper?  Between Fett and Depp, they have the most Kubrick releases.
