Nah, don't be concerned. It's been that way for months.

HLJ has a set number of pre-orders and once that allocation is sold out they put up that order stop. Pretty standard for them, it's just that SW stuff attracts more demand.

Cool, thanks! Haven't gone the route of getting a box before--looking forward to trying my luck at a chase.

I checked in on my preorder on hlj.com and the status of my box of 12 says "Order Stop." Anybody else preorder from them seeing this same message, or something different? Can't tell from the fine print if it means that my preorder got bumped or if that's just the standard status for items they haven't received yet.

Per HLJ:

"Order Stop "- Items not in stock are displayed with squares (in-stock items with circles). Blue squares with a white X indicate items that have not been released, or that we have no stock of, and for which information about the timing and/or quantities that will become available is uncertain.

Per NCSX:

"Hi Justin, the Star Wars Kubrick DX Series 4 figures are being released at the end of this month and we should receive them about 1 week afterwards from Japan. Thanks. "

Looks like these are still a few weeks away for me, but still hoping to see them pop up on Ebay any day now!

It's interesting that we haven't seen any leaked chases yet- a little more like the old days! Except everything is more than twice as expensive...  ::)

Still very much looking forward to getting these-

So he'll be the Uncle Owen/Hoth Rebel Trooper of this series then. If I can get him cheap I will but I'm not going to go out of my way.

What makes you say he's the Uncle Owen?

Uncle Owen and the Hoth Rebel Trooper were both the cheaper of the two chases from DX2 and DX3. I guess I'm hoping the 2nd chase of DX4 is a bit cooler than the Imperial Commander.

it's an imperial commander!!!

Actually I don't think it is.

He has nothing on his chest and insignia on his shoulders.

He looks more like one of these guys.



No doubt one of the guys on here will know his name. I'm just not very good on the background character names.

Vintage Imperial Commander?  Awesome.  I was hoping for the DSC, but this will do nicely.  I wonder what the other one is?

I'd like to go easy and suggest an alternate dignitary, but I'm going to go big on these:

Vintage Death Squad Commander in the Vader box
Dutch Vander (Gold Leader) in TIE Pilot box

Well spotted. I had assumed that this was the Imperial Commander from the vintage line...I really hope the other chase is more interesting because this one just lost a bit of it's sheen for me...

Technically...it is not quite the Vintage Commander...more of the Jumpsuited guys Symposium posted

Imperial Commander has rank badges like Jerjerrod and others

What's with the grey skirt?



Those guys in the other picture I posted look like death star gunners in formal dress and without the helmet.
