I`m selling off stuff slowly to fund the kubrick habit. The kubs are about all I buy anymore, actually. I just love the size and detail of them.

Well I can confirm a few things for you guys, as I was lucky enough to attend the Parco Exhibition today. In the Star Wars Kubrick section, I got a chance to see the Series 7 for my own eyes. They look awesome. An it will be the classic Anakin.

In the Star Wars Section they displayed
Kubricks
- Series 7
- 400% Vader
- 400% Boba Fett (ROTJ Version)
- Bike Scout with Speeder Bike
- Shadow Stormtrooper (aka Blackhole Stormie)

There were also RAH and VCD figures which I will post in the relevant sections.

You are a lucky, lucky fella!  8)  D'ya get any better pics than those already out there?

- Shadow Stormtrooper (aka Blackhole Stormie)

What's the story behind this guy? Was he a character from the movies or just Medicom using there 'creative licence' to create an alternative colourway of the standard Trooper? . . . also, any details of how the single figure might be released (could be interesting!)

* Note to self . . . watch original trilogy again!  ;)

They are part of the Expanded Universe I believe. Check out the link.

Hey Simon,
 Any mention of where the Black Hole Trooper is going to fit? Exclusive? Chase? etc... ;D

It didn't have a price on it like all the others, so I am wondering if it is going to be some kind of giveaway item. The Scout Trooper box set had a price of 3129yen on it.

Also I picked up the Medicom Toy Manual. Here is a sample page.

Hmmmm.. I thought my ears were burning.   ;D

Yes, I bought that Parco Sacul, went through that unfortunate business with Andy Tong, and have been collecting Kubricks way before the Star Wars stuff happened.

I'm sorry that I haven't been here before, because in a day of very vile and hatefull commentary on message boards I ran across respect for a fellow collector and  some caution before the flaming.  Credit to this board and it's moderators.   ;)

Not to defend my purchase, but want to share my mindset.  I've collected Kubricks for a loooong time.  I've used friends with Japanese relatives, Ebay, and retailers.  I haven't purchased any previous Parco exclusives as they were esentially the same as the regular release with a huuuuge price tag.  I don't know what it was but I said "Oh, hell yes!" on this one.  There is another on the Yahoo Japan auctions that is now about $250 so I think I look less like a tard.

My Miditoylarians were tingling on this one... from someone who made his own Han Stormie chase rather than buy one, I hope I'm wrong and Jorg Sacul's all around!

So, is the Biker Scout and Black Hole Stormie heading for the collector club?  Not as bad as the Parco give a ways but still a bitch.  %400 Vader..... best Kubrick ever!   8)

You guys rock,

GBU (tard who bought that overpriced Sacul)

Welcome aboard.  Always nice to have another Kubrickaholic in the audience.  And you pay what you pay.  I just about paid $40 for a bloody bust up earlier today, so who am I to judge.

If you`re happy with the price, who`s to say anything?
Now, if you paid 400 for a Luke Stormie or something, well...

I know this goes without saying, but many many many pics must be posted when Jorg arrives!

Since the info comes from a Kubrick Bulk/Super-Seller, can we consider this a pretty good idea of the case pack?

4:12 TIE Fighter Pilot
3:12 Luke Skywalker (X-Wing Pilot)
2:12 Death Star Trooper
1:12 Rebel Trooper
1:12 RA-7
1:12 R4-M9


I can't wait for the Master Cases to start showing up so we find out who are the "easy" chases and who are the "hard" chases.  :)
