They haven't done a Hologram Jedi Luke have they? Surprisingly you think it would be an easy one to do and it would have come before a Hologram Vader.

..and it is from ROTJ.

It only just dawned on me that Medicom chose C-3PO and R2 because it's the 30th anniversary of ROTJ and these two are obviously ROTJ variants easy enough to put on a ROTJ card. Why 3PO and R2, well Medicom loves protocol and astromech droids ;)

It's been so long since we've seen new Kubricks I've already forgotten the 24th is Medicom update day.

While I don't consider the carded C-3PO and R2 from DX 1 'new' it's still at least nice to see new Kubrick output from Medicom. I was questioning whether we'd even see these carded re-releases anymore but it's my guess we'll only see carded re-releases exclusive to Wonder Fest and the the Parco Toy Exhibition each year at best.

I'm not all negative, while completely nonplused by the R2 and 3PO on cards, I am quietly anticipating what Medicom will do for the uber rare carded release for this show if one at all. The one that's limited to like 200 that they only hand out to VIP guests and is not for sale.

It will be a re-release but which one! Hey, I need my kubrick fix  ;)

Tion Meddon chase for 38 Pounds sealed but without its accessory.

So I picked up one of these 'Logray fakes' for $14 shipped. I wasn't really interested initially. It wasn't because I was scared of the quality, my expectations were more than met after reports of guys here buying them, but at that price I thought why not? I could have got any even better price had I been more vigilant.

My question to you all is does any one have a reasonable explanation/theory about these? I'm quite well aware of their supposed history as per this topic but what I don't quite understand why these are being offloaded for such a cheap price and why now years after the fact? If you went to the trouble of making Logray copies good enough to possibly fool collectors why haven't the counterfeiters released them sporadically and at 'chase brick' prices? Our gain I guess.

If you went to the trouble of tooling these and the paint and everything you're probably selling them at a loss letting them go for less than $20. I can't imagine they were made on a mass scale but rather a small high cost per unit run.

Now if anyone wants to make some real money please counterfeit at AT-ST driver and in high volume ;D Logray was hardly at the top of my most desirable chase list.  ;)

Earlier this month I made mention at kubricknation that the Winter Wonder Festival 2013 was set for 10th Feb and no sign of of a carded exclusive. 

Each WonderFest (both Summer and Winter) has had a carded exclusive Star Wars kub for the last 3 years but there was nothing this Fest, which has obviously now come and gone.

I did a search around the blogs for photos of Medicom's booth but the best I could come up with was from Medicom's own site:

Not exactly the best pictures but it's my impression there were no kubricks shown. Usually you can capture a glimpse of them (as well as the be@rbricks) in front of or behind the RAH's on their respective blogs and forums.

BBTS also has all the WonderFest 2013 exclusives to purchase and only RAH's from Medicom.

You can probably work out what parts/kubricks you need from here:

Each box has a diagram on the side showing which part is included inside and I think I still might have my empty boxes but I don't have access to them right this minute so if the Instinctoy blog page doesn't help you out I can probably tell you which character you need to source a new part.


Apologies for the small image it's the best I could find after a quick google search.

I had a feeling this would be the case but it appears you're out of luck in regards to the right leg, R-3PO is pretty hard to find at one per box. Luke on the other hand shouldn't be too hard to find on the cheap to replace the front guns.

The cloth cloak would have been a lot more interesting - good suggestion.

I'd bet money that the guard is going to be a carded release. When is another issue.

From memory the silver TC-14 and the Shadow Stormtrooper amongst others, were shown at the Parco show before release uncarded.

Stole this from space monkey's post over on Kubrick Nation.  Couldn't wait for him to post it any longer...

Post away...

I'm not saying this is either a scam or a fake but this Dagobah Luke from ronnicshop on ebay has neither the original hair or weapons. It's one of those factory seconds that pop up from time to time and still go for a pretty penny.

Just a heads up if you were thinking of bidding.

Wow, where did this come from?

At least people can now stop complaining that there are no new kubricks coming from Medicom  ;)

I can deal with the re-release. It's obviously it's part of their m.o now and isn't the line better alive (even if on life support) than dead. Medicom's been doing the repaint thing for years, the 5 packs don't exist anymore and it's now down to the 2 packs ie Han/Luke, R2/3PO, Wicket/Paploo.

edit: I don't own the first version so I had to remind myself just how similar or different they are from each other.

Not just the mouth but the eyes and probably a change in robes. Was the original's robes cloth or paper like, it's hard to tell? It might just be the fact that they're prototypes and not the final product.

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

The same Parco Toy Exhibition Medicom has every year. It's usually late July or August.

Yeah that's what I thought.

Medicom must love you "Oooh, shiny droid, I'll take three thanks!"  ;D

Rhetorically speaking, do we really want more than a deluxe series a year? At $250 a chase on top of the increase cost of just a basic set it's kind of a blessing.

There's plenty of time for Medicom to announce a fifth DX series and have it out at the end of the year/early 2013. With a couple of carded convention exclusives sprinkled in in between.

Speaking of, Medicom's monthly update is today and no kubs.

I appreciate the tie pilot side by side.

Not being interested in the vintage-esque tie (and turning down your offer to buy yours  ;)) it's nice to see the comparison with out actually having to buy it  ;D

It's interesting to see there's definitely some minor differences and it's not a straight repaint.
