Hi, my name is Jeff and I'm a Kubrickaholic.

Next stop?  Sesame Street.   :D

Well...

I had lunch today with the esteemed OCB, who hooked me up with his extra Muppets Series 1 set and surprised me with his extra Back to the Future set as well, which though I initially didn't want, I somehow ended up with.  Maybe they are like drugs?  ;)

Thanks again, Scott!

At first I didn't want the BttF set, but who can resist a Kubrick dog?  Einstein!  Or Doc Brown.  I quickly relented and accepted and now have the old Kubrick total up to 28.   :o

Star Wars - 13
Indiana Jones - 1
Batman - 5
Muppets - 5
Back to the Future - 4

Soon my swap for the White Pad trooper will be complete and I'll have 29.   ;D

Virtual Teams Overcome NHL Lockout

Looks like NGC or PS2 will get to determine next year's Stanley Cup Champion.

I can't believe that this channel is seriously going to broadcast a Video Game complete with commentary and stats and everything!  Virtual NHL!   ::)

Madness.

Nice news on the box set.  The character choice is interesting, although I really like that Bespin Han.  Excuse my newbie-ness, but how does this work when a set like this or something comes out overseas?  Do you guys go via ebay, or place "your order" with Simon, or what is the best way to go?  Since I'm new here, and not even sure if I can afford to go all out, I certainly don't expect to be able to have the same precedence as you guys...but I was just curious how you go about getting these since they aren't released in the US (and Canada).  Anyways, if nothing else, its nice to be a very small part of the club here...with my first Kubrick arriving hopefully by the beginning of next week. :)

Well, I played catch up via eBay, but I think most of the fellas here try to grab a box (or Master Case for a few of the crazies) from various e-tailers.  I'm sure one of the Club Elders will be glad to post a few links for you... or US I guess since this is the first wave to hit retail for me too.

I'm still baffled by the choice of figures here but I'll take them all...

BTW, Series 3 is only a few weeks away!!!

Not even the slightest bit of hint as to the Chase figure(s) yet?  Does that kind of info leak out or is it really a wait and see what turns up on eBay kind of thing?   :-\

I wouldn't mind seeing a TC-14 Chase off 3PO or maybe a Chief Chirpa Chase off Wicket.  I also heard/saw someone mention TIE Pilot off the AT-AT Driver.  That would be kind of neat too :)

Hmmm...

Thanks for the pics!

I was kind of excited hen news of this pack broke, but now, with the re-hashed rehash that is Ponda and Flashback Obi-Wan.... well, I'm not so sure.  Also, buying this set will bring my "cantina bar section" total to NINE.  It's now too long for anything really, even breaking some chunks off for the Outlander Nightclub.

Guess I'll have to see it in person before I decide whether Zutton is worth the $20.99 that K-Mart is charging for these here.  :-\

Shaq is looking damn good these days, can't wait to see him dunk a few types on The Raper on Christmas

A good pal of mine has coined the nickname 8-rape in refrence to Kobe.

I like it and will be using that nickname while missing the NHL discussing the NBA with you fellas in the fall.

No, he's not from Minnesota...

Maybe he will announce himself after he gets his Kubrick in the mail this weekend...   ;)

Methinks we are very close to having another join our ranks...

Wonder if he'll step out of the shadows or enjoy his Kubrick in silence?  :)

Congrats on picking them up, I know I am looking forward to this wave with HUGE anticipation!

My vOTC Han has been so lonely for his pal Chewie... well OK, maybe not too lonely since he's had vOTC Leia to keep him company, but he's missed Chewie nonetheless.

Everytime I see new loose pictures of Stormie in all those cool poses, I go crazy.  I am going to have SUCH a hard time not buying a dozen of those uber-articulated holster wearing Troopers!   ;D

Yeah, I agonized over whether or not to open Indy and whether or not to sell him for quick cash.

I thought about selling him and using the cash to buy the Early Bird Set...

I thought about selling him and using the cash for vOTC...

But then, I decided that the universe wanted ME to have him, that's why he was given to me by the Kubrick Gods, so I opened him up.  After all, it's probably my one shot at an awesome Kubrick variation, so I might as well keep him and enjoy him for his ultra-rareness.  :)

After all, who am I to defy the Kubrick Gods?  Too much bad karma involved if I sell him I think.   :-\

Now he sits happily on my shelf where I oogle him and think, "Cool."
