I've pretty much given up on Chases with the DX waves.  I got lucky and got a Fett in my box of 12 for DX1 but didn't get any for DX2.  I'm not even looking for them... just way to expensive to justify.  I paid $150 for Saesee Tiin back in the day and swore I'd never do that again.  So I will probably never have most of the chases.

Me too.  And it sucks... 

Hammerhead as an uber-rare DX chase is just a kick in the nuts.  What a pisser to have Greedo, Ponda, Red/Blue Snags, and then not get Hammerhead because he's going to cost what four cases of Hasbro figures cost.   :'(

I never really focused on the 1/96 chases because of the ridiculous price.  Most collectors have one form of OCD or another, and trust me--I know there's a compulsion to get everything you can, particularly more popular characters (Tarkin as a 1/96 chase is still one of the most mind-boggling things I've seen in my time as a collector).  BUT. . .$100+ for a Kubrick is very difficult for me to swallow.  I collect Hot Toys figures, so I'm not averse to paying a lot of money for something, but for a 3 inch plastic figure it's just tough, no matter how rare or cool it is.

Compound that with Medicom's troubling trend of re-releasing rare chases as cheap, easy to find 2-packs, and you've got a formula for tears down the road  :-\

That's a good point... Of course, this is a relatively new phenomena in the last two years...

Did anyone from JD win the Owen chase that just closed?  I went a little past $150 on it, then gave up.  Dumb chases.

4 Owen's, 1 currently marked as a Ben... as for full 9 figure set's, 6 set's bin'd... Hammerhead, nada on the bay thus far... very sad...

Definately a let down for DX chase availability. Kudos to you for going for the full set of 9 early-

Thanks Dan, this is the 2nd time I have bin'd a complete set off the bay & I have no regrets... with what the AT-ST Commander is commanding, it worked out great for me... a hell of a lot cheaper than get the chases separately & I think the Hammerhead will fall in with him which is unfortunate... and on that note they have arrived...  Behold!  ;D 
Sorry for the crap pics, frickin' hot outside...  the cardboard background stays sealed...  :P

Nice. They should have given Owen more of a scowl though - the grumpy bastard and vintage-esque feet would have rocked on Hammerhead, too. :P

Jay - did you end up ordering Series 3 or still waiting?

I'd like to see a cantina wave w/ the vintage versions of Greedo and Walrus Man, and do a Hammerhead re-release, looking more like the Saga 06 figure..  Heck, considering they are re-releasing everyone in vintage style, this might not be too far-fetched.

I would like Hasbro to do that in the vintage line... or whatever line it would be in.
