In most of those photos the glasses look dark tinted, which match with mine. I'm just gonna choose to believe that there was some variation in the paint apps on the goggles, ie some got more or less black applied to the glass part.  :)

Went back and took a closer look at mine. The goggles are dark tinted, but you can still see through them to the helmet. Not totally opaque.

Mine has all-black goggles too...

All this stuff is from a big trash bin from the Chinese factory. Thousands of them on ebay....

Please elaborate on this. I'd be curious to hear any info about this thing really being from a Medicom factory.

Hey everyone. Haven't posted in a while, but I've been checking in and keeping tabs on Medicom's latest offerings. Pretty disappointing stuff, although if you're a carded collector I guess they're not too shabby. Hopefully they're just trying to keep the ball rolling until they're able to do a new wave of kubs...Maybe to coincide with the release of Episode 7??

I won an auction for the DX1 Boba Fett ROTJ chase, which was pretty much the last tough to get chase I collection is almost complete! **Emperor laugh**

Congrats guys!  How much did they end up costing you?  Are prices finally coming down on DX4?

Thanks! I got the Imp. Commander for about $250. More than I wanted to pay, but less than I've seen it for sale anywhere.

On everything besides that, I'd say prices have cooled a bit, at least for the time being. Kinda hard to tell, because the only DX4 chases or full sets I've seen listed on ebay have been priced so outrageously high ($900+ full set,  $500 lackey, almost $400 for r2) that no one would ever buy them.  My R2-Q5 sold for a little over $150, which I think is a very fair price.

Bought a full DX4 set on yahoo, then resold everything except the Imperial Commander chase.  :)  I have to admit, the stuff I sold fetched a bit less than I anticipated, but I'm still satisfied with what I wound up paying for the Imperial when the smoke cleared.... 

And some folks on ebay got some nice deals off me.   :D

To anyone who collects these and wants something to store them in, I have this spare storage box made specially for them. Drop me a pm if you're interested.  :)

Leia and R- 3PO were both packed 1 per box of 12, so I doubt anyone will have spare parts from those two, unfortunately.

I'd recommend buying Leia and R-3PO with their parts and then reselling the figures...might be the cheapest way to get a hold of those parts.

Cool, nice detail on the TIE pilot...didn't notice those differences. What is that Death Star display from? Is that vintage?

Nice work! For a minute I was wondering why Han was holding a lightsaber...forgot about his Taun Taun maneuver, haha.

Nice background too.   ;)

I just hope they're cooking something up for us. The lowered production and the R2 chase of DX4 seemed like bad omens to me.

Are there any conventions/festivals coming up where Medicom has previously unveiled stuff?

Happy to start this thread for OlBenKenobi after our recent dealings. Nice guy and a highly recommended buyer.  :)

Thanks Justin. I'm starting to wish I had the imperial lackey in there (despite earlier statements I may have made. ;))

I forgot to put in the death star trooper and the imperial R5D4. Any other death star-related kubs I'm forgetting?

Just the shadow trooper and shadow guard if you have them- although they are more EU-

Great job on the death star gunner's red visor. That looks absolutely perfect!

Thanks! It's a strip of red electrical tape cut out with an x-acto. I do have the shadow guard...never been that keen on him though. I wish I had the shadow trooper though-- he'd look sweet in there.

I dont know what other displays you have going but i would take out Antilles (never truly on the DS) and put in the older TIE Pilot.  Biker Scout could be in there too.

You're right, Antilles has no business there. I don't have any other displays at the moment so I have to keep him in there since he's new.  :)   I shall add TIE Pilot and biker scout.
