Kubricks / Re: Kubrick Addicts Anonymous

Not to seem like a complete, utter rank noob...but is there any place that has a catalogue of the figures already released as Kubricks? ie: like a section on rebelscum or somewhere else? I just want to know if they have in fact done a snowtrooper yet. And are Kubricks OT only? If so, i can only hope they stay that way...I cringe at the very thought of a Kub-Kub Binks :(

Holo Sidious on the other hand...or Maul...or heck, a 4 armed Grievous would be awesome. Imagine a Hunt for Grievous Kubrick set, done almost exactly like the CW battlepack.

LOL Thanks Madcow, it's good to be i'm sorely tempted to get a second one, cause you GOTTA have a pair (at least) of RGs :p Though if i DO get a blue guard the second time...should i be pissed? LOL

Just got my first Kubrick in the mail today, the Royal Guard. I was tempted to keep it sealed, but the lil 8 year old within (the one that made me get it in the first place :P) just had to crack it open and see if I managed a major fluke, and got a Blue Guard instead. As it turned out it was the regular Red one, but it's still seriously awesome! I can see why people go nuts over them.

So, if this is my first and only, does that count as an "inhale"?  ;D

I just like the look of em, they've got that cool Anime/SD look to them. I managed to snag the Wedge/TIE pilot set the other day, and now i'm kicking myself for passing on the X-Wing vehicle when i saw it last year :-[

Now if they do an R5 like they did R2, I'd have Wedge and his droid, (Mynock or Gate, depending on which book you read ;D)

Anyone know if more vehicles are in the pipeline for these guys? They did the X-Wing, Falcon, speederbikes, the Naboo Fighter, tauntauns, that Xwing racer thing and the landspeeder, but did they do any Imperial vehicles? Am i nuts thinking that a shuttle for these guys would be both awesome and insane? ;D Or even a CW "Space Whale" gunship, complete with ARCs

Well,  I've finally taken the plunge...

I just went and scored my first Kubrick...won a Red Royal Guard on eBay for 9.79US shipped.


My question is, did i get good deal? Red Guards in ANY size are kickass, and until they do a GH Version, this is as good as it gets ;D

The ten packs are good for those of us that got into them late as well, and missed out on the first few waves...I wouldn't have a Darth Maul right now if they hadn't re-released em. If i can find em up here, i'm gonna get at least one of would be nice if they did army builder packs of clones and stormtroopers too (sorry, residual 4 inch figure influence LOL) I wonder if they have more vehicles in the pipeline as well (either Vader's TIE, or a Shuttle would be sweet...tho as cool as an AT-AT would be, it'd be a bit much since they re did them this year) And how awesome would a GH "Hunt for Grievous" 10 pk be? (the ARCs, Ki Adi Mundi, Shaak Ti, Aayla, Grievous and K'Kruhk? It'd give them a chance to do more figures that haven't been done in that scale, or at all (K'Kruhk for example)

its sad that hem is a pegwarmer hes so cool. WHY LUSHROS? LUSHROS SUCKS!!!!!! How does it always happen 2 be nemoidians. nute, nm warrior, now this? GRRR oh btway, derlin's been in no show in ca for a while now

For what it's worth, I bought two Nemoidian warriors, thinking they'd release the commander up here so i could have a little squad of em...thanks to hasbro not bringing the final 12 up here, that didn't they're flanking Dooku (not a big fan of the SBDs)

I have given it up, more or less...the only 3.75 inch figures i've bought this year were the AT-AT driver and the VTSC Biker Scout. I could have cried the other day though. Both TRUs in town restocked within 2 days of each other...snow, sand, and scout troopers and Cantina wave figures all over the place...That Endor AT-AT looks sweet though, same with the Shuttle whenever it comes out. Almost makes me glad i've gone over to the 12 inch Figures...that way i don't have any cash (or room really :D) for the figures AND vehicles LOL.

Check TRU Richard, they had the R2-potatoo today.  Regent store.

AWESOME!!! :) It's about damn time LOL

As Jeff mentioned on the front page, Hasbro is reminding us of the upcoming WM Exclusive Tater & Trooper Tin, which will be available November 1st.  I'm praying that it makes its way north of the border.  ;)

I wouldn't hold my breath jesse, 1) it's walmart...2) it's an exclusive....3) it might help people who missed them the first time around....Most walmarts i've seen in winnipeg here are still on the Hoth wave...if they have ANY star wars figures...or a Heroes and Villains R2 or Mace. That DT Does look better with the chest piece at least. I just wish R2 would start showing up already though.

ok, i gotta at least get the Lando/Luke and Snowtrooper/Hoth Rebel sets, but where in the nine corellian hells is the Emperor's Royal Guard?! (sighs) I'll probly have to wait til they do an AT-AT driver/Veers set in 08, or a Ki-Adi Mundi/Bacara set (they could just repaint the snowtrooper and they got the Galactic Marines more or less, so it MIGHT happen... provided they don't kill the line next year

RS has an article up talking about some upcoming (rumored) Galactic Heroes sets for late 2006/early 2007.

Obi-Wan Kenobi & Durge (Clone Wars)
Anakin Skywalker (Tattoo) & Arc Trooper (Clone Wars)
Darth Maul & Sith Speeder
Hammerhead & Figrin D'An

Hammerhead!  Woo! :)

About TIME they did some CW Heroes!...Now, do Foul Moudama, Shaak Ti and either a Red or Blue guard, or both(there's a couple 2 pks right there!)

I've been toying with this idea for awhile, and now that i got my AA PB, it can be realized. I figure i'll jump on the bandwagon and set her in the "legacy of the force" era. Therefore, she's Lando's granddaughter, Elandra Calrissian. She was raised in secret on Kashyyk by Chewbacca's sister Kallabow (wookiees tend to be long lived), and a modified YVH droid...consequently she's quite a wild child, much to her parent's chagrin (it's 4 AM, i don't have time to come up with ALL her backstory! LOL)

in case the links don't work:

So far the recipe includes:
BBi AA Perfect Body
Andromeda Dylan Hunt Uniform (tunic and pants)
Hasbro AOTC Obiwan boots
Lightsaber holster is cut from the belt of Hoth Luke, just tied on and tucked under the bottom of her tunic
Lightsaber (barely visible) is made from a Phono plug (like on electric guitars) that i tore apart and reassembled
Episode III Clone trooper blaster (i know haz, i know, I shoulda just cracked open the weapons set i got with her, but hey, i had this on hand and i was lazy :lol)
Shades are courtesy of Destiny
belt is just a strip of leather from the junk drawer (aka the top of my desk :lol )

I read a rumor via the TNI forums today that apparently some names have been registered that would tie the Potato Heads into Transformers as well.  "Optimash Prime" and "More than Meets the Fry" have both been registered, from what I understand :).

So does that mean Megatron would be a salad shooter?!

if nothing else, the battlepacks give slackers like me a chance to catch up and get some of the harder to find ones (leia and padme in particular) If i thought it would do any good, i'd push for some EU characters, but at this point, hasbro's probly on the verge of pulling the plug :(
