Your wife is part of the darkside you must resist.  The force is strong in you.

You will become a might Kubrickholic one day.

I'm sorry darknight2k4, there is no help.

I suggest selling everything else, and creating a kubrick fund. My balance is currently negative, but I hope to climb back up after series 7, and the blackhole stormtrooper, and 400% Darth Vader, and the other surprises we still don't know about.

I guess the only hope is to not feel pressured to be a completist- keeping up on Kubricks is expensive enough, I can't imagine playing catch-up on the whole line-

Very cool display case there, Crackbrick.  I love that it's just big enough to fit the Kubricks (the middle 3 shelves anyway), without a ton of wasted display space above each one's head - though an extra half inch wouldn't have hurt.  What's that case actually for?  My only guess (based on the holes in the shelves) is that it's made to display a collection of shot glasses.  Is that right?  Where'd you get it, and how much was it?  (sorry if I missed the details on it already)

I suppose it was a little tricky lining some of 'em up without them falling through the holes, eh?

  What's that case actually for?

Golf balls.  The shelves are actually flipped - usually the "holes" (they're more like craters) are on top and you set the golf balls in that.  I have a similar case (for golf balls) that I bought at Target for about $25.

Some great guesses!
Its actually for coins.
Got it at Micheals.
On sale for $30 sells for $40.

Not all Bricks fit, like Vader, Ig-88 etc.
But the divits for the coins work out well with others that may be a bit to tall, just stick their head in it and the fit well.
You can stager two rows of Bricks.
Put shorter Bricks on top and ones you won't mind not seeing the legs on the bottom.

I have to take a new pic to show you how I have them set up now.

Just from courses I've played.  Most of them sell a ball with their logo on it.  It's a nice little break from all the geeky Star War **** I've got.

I noticed honorious has something like 50 stacked up that he is selling- looks like there was a good clearance at TRU Japan!
