Kubricks / Re: Deluxe Series 2 - Hoth

Medicom NEVER lost the Star Wars licence. They have stopped making any kind of Kubricks. Most likely because bearbricks are cheaper as they're just repaints.



Yeah, they've still been pumping out the SW be@rbricks in the last two years, the last one was the Jango/Boba 2-pack if I recall, and maybe even RAH's.

I'm sure be@rbricks are much cheaper to produce than kubs and in that case I'd happily take a bunch of repaint kubricks from Medicom if that was the choice between something or nothing. They could do a box set of x-wing pilots and just reprint the face and helmet.

But maybe it's not down to cost. Pure conjecture, maybe the DX line, which tried to take things in a different direction, didn't do so well.

Kubricks / New Be@rbrick Wicket & Romba and Paploo & Teebo 2-Packs
« on: March 23, 2014, 10:28 PM »
As per Medicom's update:





These don't appear to be limited like the previous box sets. That's the fourth 100% Wicket and third Paploo. I'm going to dub these the derp face variants.

I only bought the Celebration Japan 2-pack because it was cheap and I wanted Wicket to go with the other five. I can pass on these.

Here's the previous be@rs for reference:

Ha ha nice one.

Sorry if I stole your thunder by outing your score before you got the chance to receive it ;)

Did any one get this?

Jesus, I don't know if I would have pounced on it but at that price I would have given it serious consideration. I think it was on ebay all of 1 1/2 hours.

Kubricks / Re: So is Medicom killing the Kubrick Star Wars line...???

Not that this is any great surprise but the 2014 Winter Wonder Festival was held in Japan on Sunday and no Kubricks were to be seen let alone Star Wars.

These are Medicom's list of exclusives for the event and yet again no carded exclusive to be found, repaint or otherwise.

Here are pictures from Medicom's booth from the event provided by be@rbrickmania.
 
I'd take the demise of SW Kubricks and Kubricks in general with more ease if Medicom just released those Ghostbusters *sigh*

Kubricks / Kubrick Prototypes
« on: August 16, 2013, 02:28 AM »
Has anyone every seen a kubrick prototype before? One that's for sale?

I haven't. And it just happens to be the prototype for one of the harder to come by and most sought after Star Wars kubricks around. 









This has got to go for big dollars, right? Or am I making too big of a deal about this?

This is pretty unique.

More vintage homages is a direction I could live with, like the recent DX4 and carded Tie Pilot. Off the top of my head I'm not that familiar with the vintage figures so I thought I'd throw together a couple of comparisons.

Yak face



A repaint could easily be done, it's subtle but different. Kind of like the series 7 Anakin chase and the vintage repaint that was put on a card.

I only just noticed now that Yak face doesn't have regular kubrick hands.

Walrus man



A plain body with basic colours like Hammerhead's with a Walrus head.

Another almost too easy one is Greedo. Just remove the vest and orange and replace with two shades of green.

Medicom is really into only doing repaints of existing kubs so lets see some wishlists for characters that require only new paint, maybe some slight retooling for hair or something.

Some I've come up with.

Translucent blue hologram Luke:



Black Death Star Droid:



X-Wing pilot Biggs:



Green A-Wing pilot:



Lobot (new communication thing clips over protruding ears)



He obviously would have legs. Professor X is just a good reference for a bald head.

AT-ST Driver (spot the difference)



It's a obvious joke, there is none. I wouldn't say no to a straight re-issue ;)

That's a pretty good basis right there for a 5 pack, it's just a shame they came to an end a long time ago.

There's also the umpteenth R2, C-3PO and Chewbaccas but I've had my fill of them.

Let's see some creative ideas.

Cool, thanks for the quick response.

Yeah, when I was putting the above side by side picture together the quailty of the two really stands out. It almost looks like the DX4 chase is a bootleg of the series 6 Officer.

For those that own both chases, is the second Imperial Officer a re-paint of the first i.e. same hat/hairpiece and skirt piece?

Kubricks / Re: Wonder Fest Summer 2013

I love this post. A reissued Logray would make my head spin.

I've seen pictures from the festival of Medicom's booth and there are no kubricks to be seen (no surprise there) nor a carded exclusive. In previous years I'm pretty sure they've displayed the carded exclusive among the regular products.

So no repurposed old kubrick put on a card for the Summer Fest just like the past Winter Fest, only new be@rbricks and RAHs.

Kubricks / Wonder Fest Summer 2013
« on: July 22, 2013, 11:03 PM »
The Summer Wonder Fest begins 28 July in Japan and once again Medicom will be there. No word yet if they'll be a carded exclusive like in previous years, maybe tomorrows update will shed some light on this.

Last Summer's Wonder Fest brought us the very underwhelming Royal Guard on a card and this past Winter there wasn't an exclusive but I enjoyed the previous chromed droids so I'll keep my fingers crossed for something.

There's a bit of a theme happening here in the last few posts, I just BIN'ed the Limited Edition 2007 Box Set for $200 USD. Of course it had to happen right after the Aussie dollar takes a slide.

It's been that holy grail piece for a while and with there not being any other kubrick action I can afford to splash out $200. The 2008 and 2009 box sets have been going for some 'reasonable' prices comparative to what they used to sell for.

One small problem this purchase has created is I already own the Droids C-3PO and A-Wing Pilot that I purchased loose back in the day for about $40 each. I'm not in any hurry to get rid of them but if someone wants them let me know.

Apart from a few uber rare and expensive chases that I'll never own I think that's it for Star Wars kubricks.
