Well add another Kubrick to my collection. Just scored a Boba Fett Kubrick off ebay.  ;D

Nice score Dale!  What'd it run you?  (I can't find the auction on eBay)

But now that the official Kubricks have finally started to hit the market, we should probably differentiate them from the bootleg ones, like the Fett you just got there - unless that's really the same Fett that is coming in the upcoming Bounty Hunter 6-pack...  Otherwise, it's one of the older (non-official) Kubrick knock-offs.  Don't recall right now though...

Either way, cool figure!   8)

$19.99. Sweet.  The seller has one more left on his auction right now.

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=2475&item=3127643043

I found only 3 others in completed auctions. $14.99, $25. & $33.  I figured I should jump on it as it was a BIN.  ;)

The picture above was from another auction. Shows it way better than the sellers.

Just picked up a set of Bounty Hunters for $72 shipped, but I had to have them (about what you guys are paying at the e-tailer no?)

Nice score Scott!  My total shipped price from ActionFigureExpress beat yours by a whopping BUCK though!   ;D   :P

They just better include those cool little individual boxes with my order, or there'll be hell to pay...

Gonna track down an Early Bird set now to go with it?   :D

Those are sweet Scott. If I didn't spend so much money this week, I'd get a set. Those would definitely make the Early Bird set complete. Post pictures when they arrive.  ;)

So are the tins the bootleg versions, or are they the regular?  All the ebay auctions appear to be without tins.

Looks like the Boba Fett in the tin I got is a Kubrick. It looks like it was an Exclusive as was others.
Kubrick Exclusive

I did some checking around & found this link on SW bootlegs.
bootlegactionfigures.com

A big difference between the figures.

I will also add that there appears to be a Variation on the Boba Fett in the Bounty Hunter collection that Scott got.
This was posted over at RS.

OH that's the last thing I needed to see, a Vader Kubrick.  Greeeeeeat.  Add to that the stormtrooper (mislabelled as a clone trooper) and biker scout, whee, so much for saving any money at all.  Wouldn't that sweet ANH set look good with the cinema scene.

I would like to Thank member Auriette for a link to Hobbylink Japan which was brought up in another post in this section.
Kotobukiya and Fine Molds Wishlists  

As mentioned in the other thread, I have delt with Hobbylink Japan before with other items Non-SW related.
While looking at the Star Wars related items, I found that they carry the Kubrick Star Wars #1.
They sell them individually, & they are packed randomly so they cannot guarantee which one you will get.

I sent them an email inquiring if they sell them by the case of 12. There individual cost each is 780 Yen, $6.50 US or $9.41 CDN. So for a case of 12, it would work out to $78. US or $112.32 CDN.

Here is the link the sets. Kubrick Star Wars #1

As soon as I get a reply from them, I will post the cost. The beauty of getting the case even though you land up with 6 extra figures is, you can open each box yourself, you may get a variant  ::) & you get the display box.



Again, many Thanks to Auriette.  :)

Sweet.  thanks Dale and Auriette.  

If there is any savings to be had by ordering two cases, LMK and we can do it together.  If not, no worries, LMK how it goes and how to go about ordering said case.  Please.   Whoo-hoo!  Poor house, here I come.

I figured you would see this Brent.  :) I have no problems ordering 2 cases.  ;)
Though I do get hit by customs by them. Roughly $11. more plus the shipping. If they do sell them by the case, my guess is they will ship each case in 2 boxes.  They did that with my other purchases.
I didn't even think of checking there site out until Auriette brought it up.
I have been looking closely at everything they have & they even sell Marmit figures. I wish I would have known that before I got my Boba Fett. I would have saved aroud $30. US.  :(

I will keep you all posted.  :)
