Are the Biker Scout w/ Speederbike or Black Hole Trooper out yet?

No. 

The Biker Scout w/Speeder Biker is a Medicom Collector Club Mail-Order thing and was supposed to ship in November I believe...

As for the Shadow Stormtrooper, I don't recall if that one has even been officially announced by Medicom yet... lots of rumors/promo images but nothing on the Medicom site yet.

Well... What have I done.

Just ordered boxes of Series 5 6 and 7... I'm crazy, I cant believe I've done it. Once they arrive, I'll re-evaluate and see if Im still into them. If I like em, I'll have trade fodder...

Welcome back to Kubrickville Adam.  :)

Thanks for the homecoming wishes fellas. Good to be back ;) I still have fond memories of this little obsession. It was hard leaving that throne of almight Kubrick collector ;)

Do I have any reasonable chances of finding a sealed carton of Series 4? Or earlier, but I was trying to keep optimistic about 4, realizing 3,2, and 1 are nothing but pipedreams...

Sealed box of Series 1 to 4, boy that might be a tuffy. Long gone & discontinued I'm afraid. I have not seen any for awhile & that was on the bay during the summer. Some might show up but they will be pricey, might be best just to get a regular set of 6.  :-\

You could try Kubrickworld & put out an all page bulletin, great bunch of guys on the site that might help.  :)

Maybe in November I think :-\  My friend in Japan who is hooking me up said maybe December instead. No reason why the delay, just that's what he said.

Well, I slapped some sense into myself before I got carried away, and cancelled the Kubys. As much as I miss these badboys, the prospect of getting back into them and re-obsessing has pushed me away. Im sure many of you remember my completist habits. Simply too expensive to play catchup at this time.

I find myself in the same boat as you. I think I came aboard much too late to get into this line and frankly, I don't have the money for the exclusives too. Instead, I think I'm going to put my money towards some higher end SW collectibles like the PF line. I already started with Princess Leia. I'll probably pick up the Vader and Ben. My intention is to set up a movie room in the basement much like what Gruson has set-up (if you have ever seen his pics in the Sideshow 1/4 statue thread).

Just thinking about shelling out over $100 bucks for sets of series 1 & 2 sends shivers down my spine. I remember showing my wife how much the chase figures go on the bay. She threatened to send me packing if I ever spent $100 on a single kubrick. It made sense though, as cool as they are...to me for a 2" inch figure there are so many other things I can get. I'll probably pick up future SW figures in the line here and there (ex. series 7)...but not to the level I was once at...I'm just going to concentrate about picking up just a few more PF figs to tide me over and I think thats gonna be all for me, as well as far as my future in collecting.

How many people have 6 Cantina Band Members in their collection?  Its something I've thought about doing, but they are usually pretty sparse on eBay :-\

I've been contemplating the same thing but finding them is very hit and miss.

So, I'm stuck with one still.

Six?  Jeez, I just got my second, the other variant. 

I love Kubricks (these and the vintage collection are my favorites) but I have no intention of army building.  I might have a spare stormtrooper around to pair up with Vader, but that's about it really. 

I love seeing the displays guys have with armies in them too, but I'm just not going down that road.

I've consided it too, but I haven't yet pulled the trigger.  It would be cool to have one posed with each style instrument...   :-\
