Unfortunately 3 of the figures weren't truly MOMC condition (most people here know how I'm anal about MOMC condition), so I wrote their customer service about getting the problem resolved.  They responded quickly, and promised they would send replacements with my next shipment of figures.

I got my 3 replacement figures and the Tusken Raider I won, and they were all perfectly MOMC.  Thanks Kebco!

However, my most recent shipment of 3 deluxe figures came yesterday and 2 of 3 of them were in semi-damaged condition.  I know it wasn't Kebco's fault, because the box that they came in was in perfect shape with no dings and it had tons of ghost poo in it.  I contacted Kebco and they're going to send me out a replacement order.  So, I'm pretty happy with their service thus far.

Anyone a member of KEBco 1 of every figure club?

So, I'm having horrible luck (for the most part) finding new figures, none of the stores in my town have anything.  I'm thinking about joining the KEBco one of every figure club.  Is anyone here a member of it, is it worth joining?

I joined it back in March after finding nothing since Nov. 02.  My first shipment of the speeders and Vader / Leia Unleashed shipped within a week.  Since I had already ordered a case from newforce with the padawans, Aayla, etc., when I signed up, I just didn't order those figs. (leave the qty as "0")  My next shipment should be huge: Luke, Sidious, Obi Unleashed, Clone Wars vehicles, Han Hoth, Chewie Mynock, and the items I have on hold: Mace, R2 and spider droid.  So far, their service has been excellent - always a quick response on email - and they're willing to hold figs to save you on shipping (which is fair to begin with, only cost $10 to ship 2 Unleashed figs and 2 speeders).  They charge your credit card with a 50% deposit to secure your items, but everything is laid out nicely on your account status page.

I recommend giving it a shot, Cosmo.

Hey Jeff, I'm merging your Kebco question thread with that of MisterPL's from a while back so you can see a whole lot more answers to your question, which was the same as his!  Hopefully this helps with your decision on whether to join their 1 per club!   ;)

I have been a member of KEBCO's One of Every Figure Club for over a year.  In fact, I have two memberships so that I can get two of every fig, one to keep MOC and an opener.  I also order my Deluxe and Unleashed through them as well as various other items like MM series 6 and other.

I really cannot say enough good things about these guys.  Anytime I have had a problem with a figure showing up damaged, they replace it.  And by the way, that has only happened two or three times.  Two or three out of the 100 to 200 figures I have received from them is pretty good percentage, let alone the fact that they do send replacements.

You might not always get the figs right when some might hit the shelves, but I don't care.  I don't have to have my figures before anyone else, as long as I get them.  But, sometimes you get them earlier.  Plus, they will hold my figures until they get more of my order in so that they can ship in bulk and save me on the shipping costs.

I think that I pay $5 something per figure and that includes shipping.  To guarentee that I don't have to drive around town looking for one or two figs, I think that is well worth it.

Plus, if you are a member, you can now order store exclusives so that you don't have to worry about find those either.

After the retail troubles of 2003, I have started pre-ordering my figures through them (although I'm not "technically" in the one of every fig club, I order from their non-member page currently...prices are slightly higher), but I have nothing but good things to say about them as well.  I haven't received my preorders yet, but they are pretty new figures (Hoth Han, Chewie, Yoda, Younglings, Jedi Luke, etc.), but I have ordered in stock figures from them before and had great luck.  They are very good about answering any questions you might have, and like said before, they will hold figures if you want them to ship together to save on shipping costs.  I would recommend them, especially with the problems finding any of these figures this year.  Good luck!

Any recommendations on how many figures to ask them to hold that is the most cost effective?

You won't have to, just tell them to ship as many as they can together and they will handle the rest.  The get as many in a box that they can fit without damaging them.  

Sometimes I will get shipments with only one box, sometimes I get two or three.

As you guys know about the retailers never having anything new at all in stock. As for 7 months now, I haven't been able to find anything new at all since early January. Well, now thank to Kebco.com, I feel so much satifying to pre-order some of the new figuers and vechiels( and one unleash figuer).

I've pre-ordered 11 figuers, 2 vechiels and one unleash at the price of $148. That has got to be the best deal  ever.

Tee hee, I can't wait to expect a big-a** packages arriving on my doorstep in about a month or two.


BTW, I still need to find the 2003 figuers  and the following are:

Ayala sercura (sp)
Other female chick with green face.
Carkoon Fett
Hoth Han
Lama Su
Younglin jedi
Ambush tusken raiders
Anakin with swoop
Dooku with swoop
Padme in driod factory
---------------------------------

Anyway, Kebco doesn't have it, do you guys know any other sites where I can get them beside EE and Briantoys? (<cough>Scalpers)

I was seriously thinking about joingin KebCo's One of every figure club.  But, it looks like things have changed, and new stuff is finally hitting retail.
