I wonder if there wasn't some license issue with Lego/Medicom at some point. The figure sizes are pretty close. And maybe the bearbricks are safe because they are star wars version of a different toy.
I just can't fathom why Medicom would have gone more than 2 years without a series release, and only re-issues on cards. The license doesn't make them any money by itself.
Looking back at that dx4 wave and the finale picture from Justin with the kubricks in his vintage death star playset made me almost misty... It was two years ago today.
If I remember correctly. Only Hasbro had Star Wars toy figure license in the US. Its the reason that Lego is not allowed to sell just Star Wars minifigs (they kinda got around it by making really small sets). And I've been told that its the reason why you don't see Medicom at Comic Cons or in stores with large Star Wars displays.
