Glad to hear that the chase figures are not packed in a 1:48 character box this time around.  Makes it difficult if you're lucky enough to get a chase when you have to track down the one figure you didn't get in a box of 12...

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).

I like both chases, they are good looking figures. I would like to get multiples of each, but probably won't get any. The new chases are just too expensive to justify (even to myself), and neither of these is a character I have to have.

Well the At-St Driver makes me actually want to put one together now. Damn it, i may be in for the set and both chases again.  ::)

Been thinking about this.  With the more manageable assortment of Chases (that is replacing a 1:12 figure with a chase), I'm considering a Master Case again.  I figure, I can get a full set of 6 + 1 chase + 1 backdrop and still have three sets of 6 to sell and help recoop the costs.  Plus, I think the Snow Trooper commanders will be easier to sell than many of the previous high ratio figures.

Is there a discount code for NCSX?  The shipping north of the border seems fairly attrocious at $30 but I'm not sure there's any benefit in having it shipped stateside and then on up here.   :-\

Yes, agreed on the chases not being in 1:12, that is a bonus.  I can't find this on ncsx, can someone provide a link?

There is a set of 6, plus the AT-ST and hoth trooper on ebay right now for $239 shipped- That is only $65 more than a box from NCS, and you get a chase with nothing you have to sell. Just search for Star Wars Kubrick DX 2.

I was lucky enough to scoop up the Backdrop for 29.00 plus shipping just now. Not too bad.

I spotted that one and was tempted but have nowhere to display it so didn't bother. I'm glad a JD'er got it though ;)

It would also appear that you got a deal considering that there's one out there right now for $105 shipped :o
