Instinctoy finally got the other chase in their cases.  They are now referring to the R2-Q5 as a 1/96 figure.  Hopefully this one doesn't end up at 20,000 yen like the other chase did...

I noticed that yesterday. They also updated the Imperial as also being 1/96. No surprise really.

And that prices me out of that chase. I'd rather get the Series 6 Veers at half the price.

Some good points, but I still say the pemican and AT-ST driver are making you focus on the bitter tastes.


Truer words. 

I remain seriously bitter about the AT-ST driver and absolutely it is coloring my views of Kubrickland.  Owen I could live without easily enough as it wasn't a vintage figure.  $400+ for a Kubrick that should have simply been a regular in the series?   >:(

A Lackey or General Maximilian Veers as the seller calls it sold for a bin of $199.95. Also a Full Set with Background Card bin'd at $599.99.

The Imperial Commander on Ebay sold today for $255.  Anyone here get him?  I forgot about it until now, but wouldn't have gone that high anyway.  Looking at the bid history, there were 3 final bids all within 1 second of each other.  The last second sniping drove the price up almost $100 from $165 just before close.   :o  I was hoping the going rate would be a bit lower with all the dissatisfaction I've been hearing...

I had my eye on it...Thought it might've stayed at $165 cuz of the weird ending time of the auction, but nope.

Another one went up immediately starting at $250.   ::)  Its too bad the previous one went so high.  Seems like the first few to sell selt the going rate.

not me- I wouldn't mind paying $200 if it was a better looking figure- But that thing just isn't worth regular chase prices, much less dx chase prices. That goes double for the R2-AMP-U-T

I'd pay $200 for him, though I plan to add some deco to his torso.  He needs a promotion.   ;)

DX4 Chase guesses...

Black Uniform Imperial Officer

Well done, Jay!   8)

I was bound to be right one way or another  :P

My guesses if it's ANH based:

Dirty Luke in Stormtrooper Disguise with wet hair and dianoga tentacle wrapped around his neck
Death Star Duel Obi-Wan Kenobi w/hood up
Luke and/or Han with Stormtrooper utility belts
Black Uniform Imperial Officer
Leia with ITO-Droid
Porkins

BAD: Death Star Trench Gun or Turbo Laser  :P

I'm going to guess chases now for this series:

Princess Leia Yavin Ceremony (in Leia box)
Captain Antilles (in RFT box)
Space Trooper (in TIE Pilot box)

:P


My guesses:

Motti or Janus Greejatus in Dignitary box
Porkins or Biggs in TIE Fighter Pilot box

Did you order a master case from them?  Still nothing new from NCSX...  :P

After my vegas trip and reading the forums about the chase figures, I have been told my master case order is on the way

I would like to point out I did not order this from HLJ, NCX or bigbadtoyd

Here's hoping I bag both secret figures

Hope you had fun in Vegas.  Where did you order from?  Are you getting multiple cases?   ???

Got my shipping notice from NCS at long last today.  Of course, the UPS tracking number they sent is either invalid or just hasn't made it into the system yet.   ::)

Does anyone here know Adrian?  He had claimed one of the basic DX4 sets, but I have yet to receive payment and haven't heard from him in over a month.  Looks like he logs in pretty much every day, so maybe there's just some kind of miscommunication.  If anyone knows him and could let him know I've been trying to contact him, I would greatly appreciate it.

I guess if I don't hear from him I may still have a basic set of 6 plus Probot available...
