Package has left Anchorage...

Arrived at Mpls sorting facility this morning.   ;D

Does anyone know if you have to sign for the package?  Wonder how that will work if I had it shipped to work?

Nm.  The kubes have arrived.  Now I just have to get back to Mpls...

Good luck with the kubs Jman!

Just heard from NCS.  My box will ship out on Monday or Tuesday.  Fingers crossed that it shows up by Friday next week!

Thanks man!  Good news and bad news.  The good news is that I stopped by work and picked up my two boxes of Kubes!  YES!   ;D

Bad news is that I've opened 4 packages so far - all 4 are vintage Obi-Wans.  So, I either have a Hammerhead or I have no chase.   :P

Well, I need to check again in the morning, but looks like my two boxes were chase free.  I really thought I was going to get one because the figs were packed completely different between the two boxes.  One even had the Obi box turned sideways.   :P

Ah well, the rest of the figs do look nice.  I have yet to build the speeder...

That's a drag Justin- you've had good success hitting chases, and I was hoping it would continue. Hitting the hammerhead would have been awesome-

Yeah, I can't complain with my history of chases.  I'm a little bummed about not getting either chase this time, but still really happy with the other figures.  Hoping to build the landspeeder today - from all the pics I've seen it looks fantastic!

Here's hoping Hammerhead doesn't command the AT-ST prices, though with none on Ebay yet, I'm starting to fear the worst...

I know I know, but if you look on Ebay, there hasn't been an auction with Hammerhead since July.  What a difference 3-4 days makes...   ;)

I haven't been able to find any auctions for him alone- the sets of all 8 figures were going for $500-$650 I believe.

The 2 per box ratio has some benifits, but some drawbacks as well. Nice that you can build two landspeeders if you buy a box, but who needs two landspeeders? Nice that there isn't 1 or 2 that are singles in a box of 12, but not having extras of the sandtroopers or raiders is a bit of a let down.

I would still rather have the 2 per case though.  You could buy an extra Tusken or Sandy off Ebay for $15 or less if you really wanted more.  The days of having the chase packed in the 1:12 box (like your experience with Amanaman) were awful.  With S2, you got more Snowtroopers, but guys like Steve and Jay have had a rough time trying to track down Leia or even her AT-ST part.  At least the 2 full sets make it easier to sell off your extras - I would not have ordered two boxes this time around of the ratios were mixed.
