If you don't want to wait, 'thestealthtank' has a ton of them on ebay with starting bids of $0.01.  Looks like he bought a few Master Cases and is selling off everything extra he has.

Thank you.
What is a good price to pay for one though?
I've been out of the loop here.

Retail for individual figures will be around $15 for the seller to break even.  Anything below that and you're looking at a bargain. 

Big reason why I steered away from a box.  Hard sell at that price.

I ordered straight from Medicom, with a dealer discount of 22.5% off of the retail price, however with the unbelievably low US to JP currency exchange our WHOLESALE cost including shipping (which in and of itself was ludicrous) from Japan ended up being $725 for each of the Master Cases (or 181.25) we ordered.  Most expensive Kubrick release ever, by far!

Did you get the AT-ST driver in any of your cases?

Yes, I got the AT-ST driver in one case and the Rebel Trooper in the other.  I haven't opened up the third case, yet, however I believe the chases are split pretty evenly.

I don't think one has been listed on EBay yet so I was starting the think the Driver may be harder to come by.  Looks like more popular may be the real reason.

Fingers crossed that I end up with the Rebel Trooper at the end of the auction your running.  Leading bidder right now...

The commander is different than the regular Snowtrooper.
His face plate is solid.
The regular Snowtroop face thingie looks more wrinkly.

The Commander Kubrick looks more like a vintage figure though.

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

It may stink, but with a single 1/96 chase per case the odds are only 1/4.  Playing it out over the long run and considering the good luck members here have had with single boxes, the odds are simply catching up.   :-\

Bummer, I to no chases from them as well.   
On another note, anyone selling their Snowtroopers, drop me a PM. I need 3  more.

First post (though I've been lurking a bit and learning the ropes)--Hi everyone!

@ tiny--I also won a stealthtank auction, hehe. Got a set of six w/ AT-ST parts; I'm pretty jazzed!  ;D

Got outbid on the background card though. *sad trombone sound*
