I got my basic set today. I didn't realise R2's head spins/swivels kinda neat. As for Antilles my kub is fine but the head on my friends looks big. I'm gonna have a closer look then report back.

*edit*

I've just compared my Antilles to my friends and it would appear that the hair piece in the helmet is too small for the head so it doesn't fit on as snug as it should. Not really sure how to fix it.

Arrived they have!   ;D



Very nice set... Antilles helmet is a tad small for his head so might have to sand the head down to get a proper fit... the Imperial Lackey is not bad but still a bland chase... R2-AMP-U-T chase is ok, the head rotates like R2`s... others are fine but that Probot is fricken` awesome... overall, very happy with the set...  8)

Now bring on the carded TC-14 & DX5 with hopefully better chases...  :-\

I struck out again with my box from NCS (0-3 for the last three Deluxe releases).  Good luck to the rest of you who ordered from them!

Get busy! We want to know which chase you get!

Drat- I had an order with them for a while too, but backed out once I saw the chases.

I will open them up tonight and post what I find.  Can't wait!

Someone backed out for one of my basic sets, so I still have one full set of 6 plus the Probot @ $85 plus shipping.  Please don't make me resort to the Bay...

MC arrived when I got back from work. After previous MC buying experience from the other DX series the first box I opened was from the far left, or as I call it Box 1


Surprise surprise, bagged the Imperial Astromech Droid


A regular R2-D2 from the same Box 1

Congrats on the Dark Droid of the Sith, Kay!

I opened my Master Case this morning.  NCS is such a pro.  They included a note to let me know they had opened the master case just to include the invoice, but left everything else the way they received it.  The display was nicely backed against a large cardboard piece to protect it and is mint off the press.

From Kay's photo above, I opened the Boxes in the same order 1, 2, 3, & 4.  Nothing in boxes 1-3, but I pulled the Imperial Officer from Box 4.   8) ;D 8) ;D 8) ;D 8)

Past assortments have had all kinds of random packing I think, but this one was pretty predictable.  Here's the layout of the first three boxes:



Here's the layout of the last box with the Imperial chase:



Not sure how the box with the R2 was stacked, but if you open a box with the dignitaries next to each other, you likely do not have the Imperial chase.  Now, to work on some rank badges. 

Like everyone else, I was very disapointed in the inclusion of R2, but the ability to turn his head is a nice upgrade.  Definitely makes for improved poses.  Makes me want that Black Astromech a bit more as well.  I haven't opened the others yet, but will hopefully have more time to dig in this weekend.

If anyone's interested, I still have a full basic set of figures plus probot for $85.  I also have spares of R2, Leia, Antiles, Tie Pilot, and Vader All gone!  Steve - I am working on getting another dignitary for you.

I would like to add to the layout of the box I pulled the black droid and similar to JediJman layout, R2 was split

R2-D2, TIE, TIE
Antilles, Leia, Leia
Antilles, Digitary, Dignitary
Vader, Vader, R2-D2

JediJman out curiosity did you have a number written on your MC? Something like " C/NO...... "

Mine was C/NO. 168 on the outside of the box. Wanted to know and find out if this had any bearing on the chase you get. Even number Droid and Odd Imperial Lackey

I will check on that when I get home.  Was it hand written on your case?  The original shipping label to NCS was torn off and replaced with a NCS shipping label, so if it was on there, I don't have it.  I will check though...
