Definatly be picking up a set of 6 on the bay for these, though its a shame that Luke's got no chest print under his poncho.

If I wind up with an extra Luke, I'm popping that poncho right onto white prototype Fett.   :)

According to BBTS:

This box of 12 will include the following figures, along with the parts to make a (possibly two) Landspeeder:

2x Luke Skywalker
2x Tusken Raider
2x Obi-Wan Kenobi
2x Garindan
2x R5-D4
2x Sandtrooper  


Great news in my opinion. If you buy a box of 12 and don't get a chase, you'll have an extra set of six and probably an extra landspeeder to sell off.

Even though that's what it says, previous DLX boxes haven't had an equal number (2x) of each figure. (Ex: you couldn't build 2 Jabba's or 2 AT-STs) So, unless Medicom changed their packout procedures I wouldn't expect anything different than before with this release.

Jabba's Palace Asst:
3x C-3PO & Salacious Crumb
3x R2-D2 (Jabba's Barge)
2x Luke (Jedi Knight)
2x Chewbacca (Boushh's Prisoner)
1x Amanaman
1x Bib Fortuna

Hoth Asst:
x3 Snowtrooper Commander
x3 Chewbacca Mechanic
x2 Luke (Hoth)
x2 Han (Hoth)
x1 Leia (Hoth)
x1 R-3PO

Garindan and R5-D4 will be 1x I think.

I just saw the BBTS listing and came here to see if there was conflicting information regarding the case ratio breakdown.  Surely, there aren't gonna be 2 Garindan's per case (excuse me, "box" :D ).

I figured they knew something we didn't, as they've carried the last 2 DX sets and must know how the ratios usually break down. But yeah, I guess this info could be wrong. I'd be pissed if I ordered a case based on this info and the ratios were different.

I for one will be shocked if that case ratio turns out to be accurate.  I'm expecting the Tusken and Sandtrooper in a 3:12 ratio, Ben and Luke in 2:12 and the other two as singles.  But, if it does end up being accurate, it would be nice to pull a box that has a chase and not have to worry about still getting a set of six because the chase was in a 1:12 box.  That always bugged me about when there are 1:12 figures and Medicom decide to put a chase in that box.

I also found it interesting that the pre-order price is $5 less than what they charged for DLX1.  I half expected to see $210 as the pre-order price when I clicked on the link ::).

Yes, I'm happy to see the cost is down, but I wonder if they DX series haven't sold well (overall).

It's confirmed the ratio for these SWDX3 Series


2x Luke Skywalker
2x Tusken Raider
2x Obi-Wan Kenobi
2x Garindan
2x R5-D4
2x Sandtrooper

Known Medicom they could change it

I'm quite happy with this new case ratio.  Quite happy.  I think this might also drive the prices for a set of 6 down as it will be a lot easier to get a set of 6.

You know you'll still buy a box just so you can get a shot at a chase figure ;)
