I have no chase Kubrick's and I am totally happy.  The variations are relatively minor.  Carded versions would be nice and I would be happy and would keep any variations I got.  The only one that interests me is the Indy figure.  

I also want to get the early bird set.  I had hoped they would release the original four figs again in slightly modified versions, but it doesn't seem to be the case.  

Can hardly wait until they announce the Indiana Jones series ;)

Here you go!

Kubrick Star Wars #2

Just a note, HLJ are now listing series 2 as backordered.

As per HLJ:

 Item is currently out of stock. The item was ordered from our suppliers to fill customer orders more than 60 days ago. Additional supply is unlikely in the short-term as the manufacturer is also probably out of stock.

As for the backorder, you can still place an order but chances are slim you may not get them but then again you might. Depends if they get more in or if the item is discontinued. You have to order 12 to get a case. It's a hot item.

Backorder

Last time series 1 went on backorder, they didnt get any more in!

I have 5 cases coming & 1 is spoken for & the others are mine thus far. Depends on how I do on the chase figures!  ;)

I did select SAL (Surface Air Lift), but do to the volume of my order, my order order was shipped via EMS, International Express mail & a tracking number was supplied & will be delivered by Purolator. I expect that 4 cases will be in a master case from the factory.

I do expect to get hit by customs as they mark the full value & list it merchandise.  :'(

At todays rate, the cost per case was $112.88 & shipping was $16.43 per case, all in Canadian.

I'm sure Vlix and I will be selling off our spares.  No telling what that will mean for sure given some of the case assortments being seen overseas.

Yea, those ratio's are weird from what we have seen. Givin that Indy is a ratio of 1/48, if it's a master case I'm getting, then the odd's are pretty good I'll get one but then again!

Well, I would hope based on the odds you'll see one, but when HNGTMD is getting all chase sandtroopers in a box, something weird is up.

I hate to say it, but those are likely just production run ratios.  Hopefully there's some consistency.  If there is that consistency, you could end up with two Indy's :o  One in the case "guaranteed" and one in your other case.  Which you can then send to me for cheap cuz I let you open more Boba's :P
