Kubricks / Re: Power of the Kubricks!

Huh, I was not aware of the whole be@rbrick movement.  Interesting.  I have been acting under the assumption that the Wicket was a knock-off like the 4-packs.

Speaking of which, do any of you have those Kubrick knock-off sets?  I saw them on ebay last night, looks like a 4-pack from each OT movie and then a 4-pack of clones.

Anyone have them, or are you all Kubrick "purists"?

Dale - PM sent!

Scott - What the hell is a be@rbrick?

Be@rbrick
   31. Wicket





Please don't tell me there are more of those... I assumed that it was one of those Kubrick knock offs like the other 3 4-packs that came out a while back.

OK, I'm NOT gonna worry about chase figures (unless I get lucky), except for Han/Indy because, well, Indy rocks.  That means I won't have to worry about the chase sandtrooper or fetts, and I'll be happy with which ever Cantina Band member I get.  Also, I'm just gonna go loose with these, so I'll rule out any carded figures (unless I get lucky).

That said... 3 down, 27 to go.

Now I just have to stay focused and make sure that my Kubrick habit doesn't spread any farther than Star Wars...
and I guess DC Comics Batman since I like the look of that box set...
and Movie Batman, since those look cool and fit in above...
and maybe a Mickey Mouse from the Disney Line...
and maybe...?

C'mon in Jeff!  Nice and cozy in here...   ;)

1.  First off:  I hate you all for showing me the beauty of these little figures.   >:(

2.  My Han is no longer lonely... My first eBay Kubrick purchase - IG-88

3.  Anyone got any extra SW Kubrick to sell?   :-\

Kubricks / Re: Kubricks and Minimates
« on: August 19, 2004, 04:02 PM »
Dang.

Now I'm getting sucked in...

It started just a few days ago with the LotR MiniMates.

Then, last night I picked up a DC Direct Kubrick set.  Now, I'm drooling over the Batman Movie Kubricks.

To top it all off, my Han Solo Kubrick is feeling pretty lonely right now.  For the love of my sanity, NO ONE offer me a Kubrick Early Bird Set with Luke/Leia/R2/Chewy or my OCD will kick-in and I'l have an Army by the weekend.   :-\

Got my Mantis today...

Sweet.  Nice to finally have these figures to fill out my Cantina scene(s)!

Found a nice one with really good packaging and paint job.  Wuhers lips almost look normal.   :P

Saga '02-'04 / Re: holy crap!!
« on: August 18, 2004, 02:57 PM »
Luckily, Jeff helped me out with the Han and Madine

I happened across the Saga End wave twice, as well as pre-ordering the case from NewForce.  Found a total of 4 Hans, 4 Madines, and 2 Lando.   That was it, and they all hit in the same week.

Looking back, I guess I was extremely lucky find as many as I did... and Brian was lucky I grabbed the extras that I did see.  ;)

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Survivor 9: Vanuatu
« on: August 17, 2004, 04:25 PM »
Here's a little-known fact about me.

I haver never watched an episode of Survivor.  Ever.  Not even the first year with the naked guy running around.  In fact, I couldn't even tell you what day it is on (Wednesday?).  I'm not even sure why.  I guess it's just because I used to work nights and never got into it.  

And, for whatever reason, it just doesn't appeal to me to start now.  I know it's silly and that it's not like you need to to have watched from the start to "follow" the story (like with Alias or X-Files).  It's just that for what ever reason, it seems to me like I'm "jumping on the bandwagon" if I start watching it now, so I just don't watch it.

So, I guess, in summary, it is safe to say that I will NOT win any Survivor related game.

:(

Star Wars Action Figures / Re: Nataku's X-Wing Mechanic
« on: August 16, 2004, 11:26 PM »
That's funny Jeff.  Good use of some of the more complex fodder to use up.  Fat guys just rarely translate to good fodder.

The only thing I'd do is change up his pants to match...  maybe shave off that front thing (sash thingie) and make him wearing those big Joey Buttafuoco pants or something.   ;D  Dunno why but that makes me laugh out loud.

One of the things I am planning on doing is re-painting the lower body.  I was thinking of keeping the sash, but giving it more of an "oily-rag" look.  As for the LOL part, well we've got to have some funny unique customs in our collections or it'd just get boring ;)

I guess there is an additional positive for this cantina set #1 being released:
Now you complete-ists can pick up your Saga Carded Set... cheaper!

I've noticed that with the confirmation of Cantina Scene #1 box sets hitting stores, the eBay price of the Saga carded versions are dropping from $150 to as low as $35!

$35 BIN Kitik
