Still nothing on HLJ.com so I wouldn't be holding my breath for this series to be out any time soon.  Just my opinion.

Chases revealed! I dread to think what the cost of these are going to be. Having said that I wonder how many we'll see of these? Will Hammerhead be the new AT-ST Driver? (Assuming Uncle Owen is considered more common like the Hoth Rebel Trooper)



The Uncle Owen chase comes in the Obi-wan Kenobi Box and the Hammerhead chase comes in the Sandtrooper box. Both are 1:96

It looks like the 2:12 ratio for all figures is true (if you discount the chases taking up 1 space)

Sweet.  These are pretty nice chases - I'd be happy to score either one of them assuming BBTS can actually score me a box.  Hammerhead looks pretty nice, but I can live without him if he's going to be $3-400.

Looks like they changed the colour on Gary  :P

That could just be the camera that was used as all the colors in the second picture look a little dull.  I like the brighter colors int he first one, but really the second looks more true to the movie.  You don't really want an Imperial spy with a bright blue cloak.   ;)

Damn it.  I like both those chases.  I can likely live without Owen if need be.  Hell, with the AT-ST driver being what it is, I can live without that too.

I cannot bring myself to spend $400 for a single chase... but it's Hammerhead.   Here's hoping the prices aren't horrible this time around... :'(

Great chases, but I echo others by saying price does matter. Hammerhead is super cool, but anything over 125 or so would be too much.

With your new promotion, Justin, I think you could push $250-300.  ;)

I'm not so sure. If you look at luke they've not included the bandage effect on his legs that was present in the medicom pictures.

 I was digging that blue and green Garindan, but this new version is pretty nice too. I like the contrast of the cape with the muted green body. Maybe they added some chest deco to Luke.
