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
