Hi

This is a question to anyone who lives in HK.  I'm thinking of making a trip over before xmas, as was wandering if there are loads of shops which sell Kubs and are they a good price compared to EBAY?

If so does anyone have any recommendations.

Thanks in advance.

As much as I like the look of the carded figures, not gonna happen, on a side note though I did organise to get another 10 tie pilots and 2 death star troopers, should be here sometime next week
The problem with America is stupidity I'm not saying there should be a capital punishment for stupidity, but why don't we just take the safety labels off of everything and let the problem solve itself

Nice looking arrangement! It's always nice to see a blocky army assembling to defend the bricky empire from those angular rebels.  ;D

It was so your fault, dont try those Canadian mind games with me sir.
I remember the day like it was yesterday.

Hey Hemish would you like to buy some of these little plastic figures from me?

Sure Dale as long as they arent too addictive

Oh no Hemish they arent addictive at all dont worry about it, infact as soon as you get this first set you wont want anymore ever again muhahahahahaha

6 series later and god knows how much spent........

Thanks Dale

Made the trek to Ikea a few days ago, picked up a few Detolf cases.
Well worth the 60 bucks and hell ride to Philly.

Couple in progress pics for anyone who happens to be bored.
For the risers, I used the ones I had. However, they are textured on top, and kubs do not like to stand on them. I got a piece of black foamboard at AC Moore and cut it to fit the shelves. If they still fall a little, I will put put brads in the board, so the kubs will have a footpeg.

that set-up looks fantastic sithbaker!! i've got 2 ikeas about an hour and a half apart from me (in stoughton,ma and new haven, ct...about same distance from my house)...i was looking into the detolfs but the other case (i forget the name...it was $99 and was untreated wood) caught my eye as well and i'm having a hard time choosing between the two for my own collections (besides kubricks).

you did a great job setting those up...your collection is incredible (i don't think i even have 3/4 of your collection!!) and i love all those stormtroopers!!!  8)

Great loooking arrangement- It's nice to see them all visible from multiple angles like that.
Congrats on the collection, it is very impressive.

Adam, thanks for sharing the pics!

I picked up this today.  Glad I did not have to "pay through the nose" on shipping costs.  Bring on Vader...

They did have some other cases, but I liked the mostly glass Detolf the best.
One was called Bertby, I think, and you can mount it on a wall. It wasn`t as deep, but it looked good. I fit 3 of these in a Nissan Altima with the rear seats folded down, I think most of these cases would fit ok in a car doing that.
