    Use of the word "Limited"

    I have been buying up a lot of the Star Wars Titanium Series ships lately and have been finding a few with the word Limited on the package front. Just how limited are these? Anyone know?
    thanks

    Ah yes, the chase vehicles, they aren't very limited really, they're "limited" to 1 per case for as long as that case ships, and then sometimes they'll show up in future cases again at 1 per case but not supplanting the wave's 1 per case vehicle. I don't believe there is a set number on these, and I don't think they're found in every wave anymore.

    Thanks JT. Much appreciated. I also notice that the ones that I have picked up on Ebay are a little different but I write that off to the fact that I am from Canada and our cards are Bilingual.

    Yeah, foreign cards always are like that. At least it's not tri-lingual for Mexico as well, they pull that sometimes. I believe all the limited ones have the silver-foil name plates on the packaging as well, is that the case with foreign?

    Yes JT. Our limited ones do have the Silver foil labels. I have also noticed now that you mentioned it that the languages on the back of ours includes the tri-lingual (Mexico) as well. So, they are not bi, they are tri, LOL

    Hey. Another thing I just noticed is on the Sith Infiltrator I won off of Ebay. It came out of California and has the word Limited on it but the label is not foil. Man, too many varis in packageing. Gonna be a long winter. LOL

    "Maniacal?" *Sniffle* That's possibly the nicest thing you've ever said about me

    Seriously- that Infiltrator sounds like a re-pack or a mispack OR a wrong sticker of some kind. Pics? Also, inspect for cuts on the side (I've gotten good cutting my opened ones so slightly that I could put them back in the package and no one would be the wiser

    The Tri-Linguals (of which I only have the Wal-Mart Wave 4 Wookie Flyer) have weird packaging, IMHO. The generica ship design is ok, but the American ones are better

    Well, it is definatly not a repack. I have been collecting diecast 1/64th cars for 10 years now and this one is clean. Here is a pic for those in the know

    I just posted over in "L.A. Found": I snagged a repainted "mud spattered" Titanium swamp speeder at Toys'R'Us, that's different to the "clean" one I got at Target. I'm curious as to which one's the rarity.

    S-trooper, that's wild, I have no idea what's going on there, it shouldn't be limited, the Sith Infiltrator is not a limited-release vehicle in the US cases, and that sticker isn't silver-foil; oh, and there's no tri-lingo on the front, is that right for foreigns? Maybe they screwed up the sticker-printing for the foregin releases, or maybe that is a foreign limited, I dunno, very weird.


    Scribe, it's not a rarity, it's from the first repaint wave, #11 - http://www.sirstevesguide.com/index...._articleid=238

    there's no way to determine which is more rare at this point.
