I wonder if those HP Kubricks will be available in the US (hopefully at TRU) like the Watchman Kubricks were?

WTF happened to the Ghostbusters Kubricks?

I heard a rumor that they ran into licensing issues (Mattel and/or Mini-Mates), but I don't think anyone has been able to get a direct answer from Medicom.  I'll shoot them an e-mail and see what they say.

Their answer was... not all that exciting:

The said item is still TBC at this moment.
If and when they are ready to be announced, we will put advertisement on our website
Until then, they are TBC


I'm guessing TBC must be like "To Be Considered" or some other form of 'to be determined'.  So, Ghostbusters are not technically cancelled... but not exactly coming anytime soon I guess.

TBC is used in the UK quite a lot for film certification (on pre-release posters and alike) and tends to mean To Be Confirmed. Not that it makes a great deal of difference.

And for those of you out there that collect Be@rbricks, Series 20 is also going to have an Iron Man be@r.  They also have a very cool looking Gizmo from Gremlins in that series.

The Series 20 Be@rs are out and the 'Secret' Iron Man be@r is War Machine and the 'Secret' Wicket be@r is Stripe.  I think I'm going to have to pick these four up...

I'll let someone else fill in the details but in summery.

DC 75th anniversary is going to be done via a series of 2packs

Tron will have a 2pack (a repack of 2 kubs from the 4 boxsets) and Tron Legacy will have two kubrick/bearbrick 2-packs also.

BTAS: Batman + Robin ... best pack, the Batman deco is much better than the S1 version and Robin is cool
DK: DK Batman + Joker bank robber ... Joker is okay.
Batman 89 (new logo) and Superman Returns as a repack ... meh

Holy ****, I am so all over this - Blade Runner box set: Bluray plus Police Spinner!  Sounds like it will hit Japan in December.

That ship looks pretty small.  Still neat, though.

Looks like the same size as the Medicom BTTF II Future car. 23.5cm = 9.25".

This beauty that eluded me for sometime arrived in the mail today.  8)  Medicom BTTF II Future Car aka Blade Runner Spinner. Now do I leave it the way it is or do I modify/repaint/decal to make it look like the Police Spinner from Blade Runner?



For those that are interested in this set, HLJ has it up for preorder for $144.49 US. I got my set ordered...  ;D

Now here's a fantastic box set for any fan of the iconic 1982 Ridley Scott film, Blade Runner! This Blade Runner Collector's Box includes two region-free Blu-ray discs, one the "Final Cut" version and the other the "Work Print" version, but the big news here is that this set will also include a beautifully detailed large-scale model of the ever-popular Police Spinner car! The fully-assembled, fully-finished and accurately marked non-scale model of the Police Spinner is made of ABS plastic, measures 23.5cm long, and features colored clear parts for the police lights.
This is the first officially licensed and produced replica of the Police Spinner in this size. Blade Runner and science fiction fans have been yearning for a model of the Spinner car for ages, and now here it is!

This set is being offered as a limited edition collector's box, so grab yours before they're gone!

DC COMICS' 75TH ANNIVERSARY SUPER DELUXE KUBRICK SET 
By Medicom Toy.

Under special arrangement with Japanese toymaker Medicom Toy, DC Direct wraps up DC Comics' 75th Anniversary year with an extra-special, super deluxe set of DC Comics' best-known heroes and villains, in an array of versions ... KUBRICK style!

Featured in this 10-figure, super deluxe set are: Batman (comics-style): New Deco; Superman (Superman Returns movie) Batgirl (animated-style): New Deco; The Joker (The Dark Knight movie): New Deco; Batman (animated-style): New Deco; Batman (The Dark Knight movie); Batman (Batman movie 1989): New Deco; Robin (animated-style): New Deco; Catwoman (Batman Returns movie); and Harley Quinn (animated-style): New Deco.

Packaged in a super deluxe 4-color window box measuring approximately 8" high x 7" wide x 2" deep.

$99.99, in stores on Dec. 15.

There's just enough new/repaint stuff in there to make it annoying...  $100 is a bit more than I want to pay for a box of repaints, so I guess I'll just watch and see what happens before I commit to buying.  Past DCD repaint box sets always bottom out on the cheap side after a few months, hopefully this one will too...

Has anyone heard if this 10 pack is still coming out?  I see smaller 2 packs covering 6 of these figures, but nothing about the large set.  thanks

Both DC Direct and EE are still offering it for sale, so I believe its still coming.

I think the smaller 2-packs are for Japan market, while this 10-pack was always meant for the US market via DC Direct.  Sort of the same way that Japan got single-boxed Watchmen while DC imported them in 3-packs instead.  Different markets, different configurations.
