Any word on how many will be in a set (300? 500?)

thecollectorzone.com lists it as a 300 13.5g chip set. I would rather have a 500 11.5g set.

I definitely agree with you there.  I really like the feel of the 11.5g chips and having 500 in a set would put me all in for two sets without hesitation.  I don't see myself getting three sets.  That's really unfortunate because I liked how these looked when I saw them at CIII.

I thought I had read a Q&A somewhere with MR that they had given up on this set since they couldn't figure out how they wanted to do it and didn't think there was too much of a demand for it.

Well WTF is happening with this set? The site above now has a release date change, 30/08/2007. So like is this going to happen or will it be on the backburner.  ::)

I'm betting that we can kiss this set good bye based on yesterday's news.  I was looking forward to this too!

Yeah, it's been gone long ago I'm afraid. I was looking forward to the set too. Oh well, c'est la vie.

I know.. I was totally looking forward to it... But now Cartamundi will be having a poker chip set (I pre-ordered mine at CIV).  They don't even mention it on their website but they had the prototypes there.   Granted, they're plastic, only in 3 colors (Green, Red, Blue) and 4 faces (Yoda/Luke, Vader, and I forget who was on the blue- Obiwan?).   They do glow in the dark though.   It's only a 250 set though and will run around $150.  I've been looking for SW poker chips for a while now so I of course jumped right in.

Damn. That is one impressive set. :o

If I actually played poker more I would absolutely HAVE to have that. As it is I may have to try to track one down slightly cheaper on eBay. I love that light up feature.

Honestly.. it's "OK".   I applaud Cartamundi for getting this out but there are a few things that I think suck immensely:
1.  Three colors of chips but 4 characters....   that's just stupid
2.  The nice LED case that they come in doesn't have a FRICKIN HANDLE!!!   WTF?
3.  Artwork is kinda dumb imho... like pasted on stickers in the middle of the chip.

All this can be yours if the price is right.... or wrong in my case since I pre-ordered it at CIV....
I'm not unhappy that I got it... I just wish it felt more like it was worth the $150+ tax I paid for it
