Why couldn't they have a chase for set A? They could have had a younger Comedian for the chase like the DC Direct figures.

There probably is one, and I would hope for a "Classic" Night Owl, except that he was relegated to a few seconds in the intro. to the movie and standing around during a photo session later, so it probably will be the younger Comedian. . .but unlike the DCD version, hopefully this will be his earlier costume.

Took Medicom a long while to get Dark Knight Kubs released, as well. Hell, I haven't seen an update on the Ghostbusters Kubricks since last year. They just aren't on the ball like our great American companies smile.gif

Just to let you know that the Watchmen kubricks have been released. As I understand it there are 6 basic & perhaps 3 chases. 3 chases is the norm with kubrick waves but nobody is declaring any yet.

I guess each box set has 3 blind boxes inside?

I can see where you're going with that Sam but I perhaps feel that Medicom are releasing 2 box sets each of 3 basic figures & the blind-boxed series where there will be an opportunity to find the secrets. The latter sets are available now on ebay.

Do you recall seeing this type of release before with any Kubricks? Seems a bit strange to release them this way. . .not that I'm complaining. The box sets are crazy cheap as far as Kubricks go, and if I want chases, I will buy them on eBay--no searching and hoping for me. I would be shelling out another $20-30 based on current eBay prices for the "basic" set of 6 over what I'm anticipating paying BBTS (no guarantee they won't raise the price before they arrive, or that the box sets are still being released at all).

Your last comment is the most telling...will there be box-sets? As for precedent? Yes! The current Boba Fett Star Wars kubricks have been released in the ultra-collectable 'carded' basic set of 6 & the 6 + 3 secret blind-boxed set. All the basics are identical.

Whilst I can't confirm anything about the box-sets, I can confirm that there is a chase for the blind-boxed set because I've just seen this on ebay http://cgi.ebay.com/...rie...:1|294:50

It's very unusual to have just one secret in a kubrick wave,in fact I can't think of another occasion where this has happened!

According to the BBTS listing for the "3 packs," 1 in 4 of the packs with Dr. Manhattan will have the chase with suit. . .for what that's worth, if anything:

Yeah, I don't think we will understand until the whole box set debate is resolved. Could be they were manufactured for the box sets, and they were packaged up in single boxes for the Japanese market, which could account for there being only the one chase. If 1 Manhattan is released per ever 4 3 packs with him in it, then that would mean there was really 1 for every 24 figures released in the box sets, which would ultimately make him far less rare than the 1/96 that he currently seems to be.

I only slightly dabble in kubricks so I may be wrong but I think the batman set only had 1 secret pack in which was spoiler (which I still need to find lol)

Whilst you're absolutely right & you can add all the Marvel Waves as well now I think of it, I was thinking along the lines that all the Watchmen figures are packed in equal numbers except for the secret at 1:96. This of course is probably not the case ( biggrin.gif ) & some of the Watchmen figures may be rarer than others. Time will tell & thanks for correcting me.

How dare they put Rorschach in the back! Hopefully these will come out in September, otherwise I won't mind importing just a single Kubrick.

*But really I'm for anything that'll help Chuck see clearer and diversify the line even more, so that everyone will be happy. Also, I still want Inhumans even though DST said that might take take a while. Also also, I really do not understand DC's decision-making process sometimes. Also also also, the Book of Minimates needs to become a real thing. Also also also also, I'm still looking for Femme Fatales Minimates.
