I feel like I see more common DX02 figures than I have in previous waves.  I cringe everytime I see the photo of the 4 common guys with a big X through the ones NOT in the auction.  Can this poor bastard just crop the images already?

PM sent for 7 figs, thanks

No chases in my box/12, bummer.  I have extra Han, Luke, Chewy x2, if anyone wants em, PM offers.

A box of 12 for under $140 shipped is a steal, considering most foreign sellers are selling for $189 shipped for 12 or $110 for the basic six.  So, a box of 12 for $110 shipped is incredibly insane, and that would be the lucky bastard that gets the 1/96, right?

Anyhow, I appreciate stealthtank alerting the community here, and in the future would gladly pay $140 shipped for DX3 if you want to cut the middle (ebay) man out of it.

Yes, agreed on the chases not being in 1:12, that is a bonus.  I can't find this on ncsx, can someone provide a link?

i know no one has this set yet, but does anyone know if there are any differences from the chase figures? I woory if they keep rereleasing chase figures then it will bring down the value of some of the chases.

They appear spot on the same.

My S4 Hoth Solo and Stormie had head issues, and my chase looks just like your Luke.  It looks pretty real to me.  At least the paint job is nice, my (original) S2 Han looked like a bird **** on his head...but it swiveled just fine ;)

I am no longer miffed by the "re-released" figures w/ new vinyl capes if they are all as cool as Kenobi.

And to Dan's point, to go along with our fourth threepio, I'm sure we will be getting our fifth Chewbacca soon that will come with a net for goldenrod...

If that happens, hopefully his bowcaster is a new mold.  Of all the excellent blaster molds, the bowcaster really looks silly.

I don't buy this reasoning.

I think that the chases/unique figures are the thing that keeps this line going. If they continue to release weak chases (ala DX1's Boba Fett) fewer people will purchase Master Cases which means reduced sales which could be bad for the longevity of the line.

I'm not holding out much hope for the chases for DX2 at this stage though...

By comparison, the weak chases (DX1) are right up there with the weak selection of basic characters for DX1-DX4.  The majority of the basic 6 for all the DX series have become repaints, tweaked repacks, or vinyl capes versions.  If DX2 chases are battle-damaged Luke and blue star Snowtrooper, I'm skipping a box of 12 again.  If DX2 chases are AT-ST Driver and Rebel Trooper, I'm spending some cash.

And how did Johnny Depp get involved in this.  What?  Are you drunk-posting?

I think what Tiny was getting at is that Medicom's love for BF is only rivaled by their love of Johnny Depp (in terms of the number of Kubrick releases there have been of both).  So it wouldn't be surprising if they melded the two and we got ourselves a JD SW figure at some point...

Yes, that is what I was saying, but somewhat joking that Johnny Depp might show up in a stormy costume.  I like repaint/repack chases that aren't "character" critical (Yak Face, Logray), so DX1 is a blessing that for less than $100 anyone can get the basic 6 + Jabba.  If regular Bib was actually a 1:96 in this set, lots of folks would be sad.

Given the Bib, I think a Battle Damaged Luke is still a good possibility.  Since neither S1 Chase was all new, I'm less hopeful about the Rebel Soldier, but maybe Veers in Armor is more likely...Can't wait to find out!

I prefer this.  Variants of the basic figure or repeat chase figures is actually a blessing in disguise -- if you are not a completlist.  What if it's Johnny Depp as a stormtrooper?  Between Fett and Depp, they have the most Kubrick releases.

Yeah, Dengar was barely in a scene, most likely obscured by the fat chick w/ all the knockers.
