Heck he's probably not wearing anything under that helmet.  Han's a little disgusting.

Ok, someone please help me here.  It looks like Toys Chameleon charges about $73 US per case and shipping to the U.S. is around $30.  My question is, do they charge more for shipping multiples cases?  I was trying to add 4 to my cart (making a master case) but it wouldn't register on the checkout page, so I wasn't able to see if shipping would increase.

Also, if anyone has websites that they suggest preordering this series from, could you please let me know since the only cases I bought were from BBTS here in the U.S.  How much do the cases typically cost and how much is shipping for a mastercase?  Can you use credit cards to preorder or do they require prepayment for international orders? 

And is there any way to translate these Japanese websites?  Your collective help is appreciated.

Haven't looked on here for a day, and I found out the big news of series 6.

Luke is top quality, and I like the army builder figures.

Hopefully, the chases will be Wedge or Biggs and Tarkin.

Sorry, never used them before.  :-\


Also, if anyone has websites that they suggest preordering this series from, could you please let me know since the only cases I bought were from BBTS here in the U.S. 

Around these parts, I think most folks who pre-order their Kubricks use one of these sites:

www.eBay.com - pretty obvious and where I started
www.HLJ.com - Japan e-tailer, good prices if you get in early
www.robby.jp - Japan wholesaler, but you need to preregister a "retail wholesaler" account to order
www.spanky.co.jp - never used them myself, but others have
www.toys-chameleon.com - never used them myself, but others have

I think toys-chameleon is the only one taking pre-orders so far...


How much do the cases typically cost and how much is shipping for a mastercase?  Can you use credit cards to preorder or do they require prepayment for international orders? 

By pre-ordering early, individual boxes of 12 usually run anywhere from $65-80.  The earlier you order, the better the price.   Master cases would obviously then be anywhere from $260 to $320.

Shipping really varies depending on where you live and how much you buy.  Probably run anywhere from $30-60 for shipping a Master Caser, depending on if you choose SAL (surface) or EMS (express).

Most of the places will take a credit card hold to secure a pre-order and then charge you once the stuff ships.  Be VERY wary of those who make you pay full price on pre-order.  Lotsa people lose money that way because they pay up front and the pre-order is never filled (especially the case on eBay  >:().


And is there any way to translate these Japanese websites?  Your collective help is appreciated.

I like to use www.babelfish.altavista.com to do my translations...

I can give props to Spanky, great seller and easy to deal with.
BUT! I would not get a case of 12 from them, they do sell chase figures,
so they do open a lot of cases. They MIGHT (can`t say for sure) put the dud
boxes on the side and sell them that way if they get the chase figs out of the
first 2-3 boxes from a master case.
HLJ or Toys Chameleon are good too, can`t go wrong with either really.
No matter what, shipping will be up there for EMS, and a lot of them don`t
like to send it other ways. EMS is quick, trackable and can be insured from
what I can tell.

Great pics Adam.  That's exactly what I want to do with the next series - I've got 6 Stormtroopers and Gunners, so I'd like the same # of TIE Fighter Pilots and Death Star Troopers.  Unfortunately I don't have any Sandtroopers since I started collecting these after that series.

I wish I had kept all my stormies now, but I sold some off with Vaders. I never
intended to get a few of each, but it just kinda happened. I got 4 Sandtroopers
off eBay a few weeks ago, wish I could find more at a decent price.
I`m going to need a bunch of Ties and DST too! And fleet troopers!  ;D
And same $(#$*@! royal guards if they ever put them out (PLEASE PLEASE!)

Exactly.  The Emperor needs some company.

Got him in a trade over at KW for a couple marvel kubs.
Bringing my Bearbrick collection to a total of 3 (soon to be 4 when Willy Wonka arrives).

Ugh, that would SUCK big time.
So far, I think, Medicom has been great about making all the popular figures
as regular series, and the chase figures are kinda non-essential ones.
If I had just the basic set from each series, I would still be very happy with
them.

NICE! I still need that one. I've gotten hooked on the Bearbricks lately, mainly the Horror ones. I just picked up the 400% SDCC exclusive and the series 10 bear. Ugh, these f'n things are sooooooo addicting...
