Yay!!!  I'm really happy about these chases.  Jar Jar looks great.  I love 'em all.  Can't wait to get 'em.

Hey,

The Medicom site was updated today.  There's a really nice clear pic of series 9.  Woo-hoo!!!

Wow!  FINALLY! another picture to drool over.

Did they have an idea of a release date (so we can expect them a month after that)?

Well, I only have the fake one (which, by the way, he's supposed to finally be refunding me after this weekend - took him a while to get back to me, though).  And comparing it with my other real SW Kubricks, I find that the hands are the biggest tip-off.  The fake hands are just so hard and more plastic-y.  In real 'bricks, you can grab one with your fingernail (I guess) and try to widen it slightly to tell that it's softer - and real.  The other's like hard plastic.

AND he's still standing up.  (Shouldn't he have fallen down by now??)

Okay.  I'm back.  Sorry to take a few days with the photos of the "Logray".  (I'd left my camera at my parents.)  Anyway, please forgive the somewhat terrible pictures.  (Why is it so hard to take pics on a digital camera??  Grrr!!)

Anyway, since I don't have a real Logray yet, I can't make side-by-side comparissons.  But Wicket came in handy at one point.
- Right off the bat, I noticed the different paint job.  It's a lot more shiny than real Kubricks.  Just look at his hands and feet on some of those photos.  Way too shiny.  And it's hard to tell from my crappy photos, but his tummy's also got really shiny paint.
- His hands are not real Kubrick hands.  How do I know?  I cannot, for the life of me, put that damned stick in his left hand.  It is impossible.  WTF??  It is made of some wicked-harder plastic.  Aren't Kubrick hands supposed to be softer?  More like rubber, but harder?  This is ridiculously hard to bend.
- The paint detail on his medical bag is also crappy.  Goes outside the 'line' on some of the bits.  Looks like blotches of grey, yellow... yuck!
- And last, but not least, look at how wide I was able to open his legs.  That's what gave it away.  Star Wars Kubricks are sometimes hard to stand perfectly still.  Their legs, because of them being made 'Unbreakable', can't be moved like non-Star Wars 'bricks.  (Some of them, like my Leia and Boba Fett have their toes somewhat pointing each other - am I right?)  Try opening other Star Wars Kubricks' legs that wide, it's damn near impossible.

Conclusion: Fake Logray.

Sure.  I'll tell ya, it's really hard to tell.  Give me a bit of time to take the pic.

So I finally got my Logray today from that muthaf**ker Madsontoys-or-whatever.  And upon super close inspection (comparing with the one at kubism.net), I'm pretty sure it's a fake.  But man, thank god for you guys.  I don't think I'd ever have figured it out.

You guys know if this guy really gives money back?  I'm gonna start hounding him...

Ten Numb actually does have a new sculpt torso.  I'm sure they'll look nice all displayed with the others, though.

Really?  I stand corrected.  :)

Well, then it's cool that they're putting out some more figures now.  I still think there'll also be a nice box set of all new figures before years-end.

Hey, DaBigKahuna, are we the same person?  That's exactly how I felt collecting the Hasbros and that's exactly how I feel about my Kubricks.  :)

I was wondering: you think K-3PO will come with that accessory like the Hasbro one?  I think that would make it more than just another repaint, and would be great of them, imo.
