Early Bird and Series 1
« on: December 21, 2002, 10:46 PM »
Does anyone know if those new Kubrick figures have hit Japan yet (or anywhere else for that matter)?  I'm talking about the Bounty Hunter and the "Early Bird" sets that are the first official Kubrick figures that are to be released.  Also, does anyone know of any reasonably priced sites or people that you can buy them off of?

For some reason I really like these figures.  I picked up almost all of the bootleg SW Kubricks a couple years back, and have really been looking forward to these new and officially licensed versions since they were announced earlier this year.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

The only place I've seen these are in magazines.  They look really cool though. ;)

Looks like the new Star Wars Kubricks are finally starting to trickle out.  It appears that only the "early bird" set of Luke, Leia, R2, and Chewie has been released, but check out how cool the pictures of it look:





From the early indications I've seen, including 7 or 8 eBay auctions up for them right now, I think this set will likely run ya' a good $40-60, which is pretty steep.  But they just look too cool to pass up for me!

Ha Ha. That is cute. Yep, I'll have to get a set myself.
Just have to look around the net to find one cheaper.

Yeah, finding a reasonable price on these is going to be the big challenge.

...and don't forget, that ultra-cool bounty hunter 6-pack is due out next!  8)   **drools**

Ah, ya' lucky Canucklehead Dale!  I'm jealous, but I just won't drop that kind of cash for that set at this point, though I admittedly spent quite a bit on the Kubrick knock-offs a year ago.  Hmm...  I'll have to think about it...

Looks very cool, and that ESB bounty hunter set is just going to be way sweet!  Only at retail in Japan...  NOT FAIR!   >:(  But I guess that's how a lot of people feel about the U.S. quite often, huh?  Oh well...

Action Figure Express now has the Bounty Hunter 6-pack available for pre-order at it's site, for the decent price of $59.95.  Unfortunately, you're also going to get hit with an outrageous $10.95 shipping price.  But still, $71 for this set, considering what the Early Bird set with only 4 figures is going for, is not too bad.  I placed an order!  It's due to ship some time in April.  Here's the link to order it:

Anybody find a decent price on the Early Bird set, or is eBay our only hope...?

Those are sweet. I'll have to order them.  ;)
So far, ebay is the only hope.
Just around what I paid for & up.
There were a few auctions that ended around & over $100.  for the Early Bird set. :o

Those are really neat! I have three sets of the BootLegged Sets from a few years back. If these things were not so expensive I would get them.
For those of you looking for me. I am now at www.sandtroopers.com

Great set Dale!  I'm REALLY going to be wanting one when my Bounty Hunter pre-order set finally shows up.  I guess I better start some hunting...

Do we have a "jealous" graemlin here...?   :-[

Those figures are gorgeous!  When does the bounty hunter set come out, and where can I get it?  That link in one of your previous emails Matt didn't pull up any Kubrick figures.
