Kubricks / Re: Custom Star Wars Kubricks

Hey Jake,

Congrast on getting the box set for starters - that's a nice piece.  For the Snowtrooper, I personally would just wait a year for the Deluxe wave to hit.  That has a very similar snowtrooper and you can just swap heads.  That shouldn't be too expensive in comparison and will look better than any kind of fix up job.  Just my two cents.  Good luck whatever you do!

I didn't even think about doing that.  I'm sure the Snowtrooper will be common as well since most of the imperials have been, so that's a plus.  I might keep my eye out for a single Stormtrooper as well in case a really good deal hits eBay, but ultimately I think I will swap the heads when the new Snowtrooper comes out.

Thanks a lot,

I've got a question for all you customizers.  I recently made a purchase on eBay for the Star Wars Mail Away Box Set which includes the Snowtrooper.  I rushed my bid only to realize later that the picture included in the auction was not the actual set being sold and that the Snowtrooper figure had fallen out of a 5th story window of an apartment building!  I'm a little upset with myself because I think I overpaid for the set but at the same time I'm still really excited to get the figures.  Anyway the seller sent me pictures of the Snowtrooper and it actually looks like it is in a lot better shape then I expected.  The only real problem is there is a deep scratch on it's head.  So basically I'm wondering what the best way to remove/cover up the scratch would be.  If you'd like a picture before making a suggestion I can provide one.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions you may have!

Hey Everybody!

I'm a long time Kubrick collector who bought a couple of Star Wars series when they were first released.  I've always wanted to collect the rest of the Star Wars Kubricks that I missed but never could afford it.  Well I've went on a little bit of a buying spree lately and am nearing completion of the Original trilogy, sans most chases which I feel are too expensive for the character you get in most cases.  Still there are some chases that I want really bad.  I was wondering if anyone would tell me a good price a few items can be had for.

Grand Moff Tarkin - I want this Kubrick so bad!!!
Early Bird Set

Thanks in advance!!!
