The old boxed set of Muscovite Reiters has been replaced by blisters that only include a single Rota. Fine in itself, but the old boxed set included a command base with dedicated Muscovite Reiter command figures. I can't see those figures in the online shop anymore, so I'm wondering if an where they might become available again.

Yes, there will be also regimental box containing dedicated reiter commanders, however there is no release date yet.

Ok. The old box contained six bases. Will the new box contain the same? This will help me determine whether it would be worthwhile to get a few separate Rota's now.

new box will be definitely larger - we haven't decided yet but I suppose 12 bases + commander base

I think that the best idea is 18 bases of reiters, two bases of lancers, commander and lieutanant. This way You have full regiment in a single box.

Full regiment has 20 bases of reitars (yes, I know 99% players will take 18 ;)) and it would be just too expensive.

Full regiment can have 24 bases (with 4 additional - to make 4 squadrons) ;)

Can anyone tell me a bit more about the Reiter command figures?

The standard bearer looks like he could be the same model as the Lancer Rota. Or is he different?

The musician looks like an ordinary trumpeter from the Muscovite command sets. Is that right?

The Lieutenant Colonel is the only one who looks like a specially designed Reiter command figure. Is there just one variation or multiple?

I have since understood that the Reiter command figures are dedicated command models for this set. That means that the musician is without armour and without the breastplate that other Reiters wear. Why is that? Why is he left out? Is there a historical reason for that?

Because musicians often didn't wear armour, instead having better quality clothes to show off ;) The say goes for example for winged hussars, where we have pictures of unarmoured musicians within the unit.
