It may suck that the box set is exclusive, but isnt it good that its for a large retail store? I mean I know toys r us exclusives are easy to get here?

Wow.  And to think, everyone thought I got a steal on my R2 for "only" $82 last month...   :-\  Damn, just a little more patience and I would've been in even better shape!

Oh well, that just means I'll be able to get a relatively cheap loose one soon as well.   8)

Good Lord.  Just looked around, and you weren't kidding Dale!  $54 Droids R2   :o

Where the hell were all you guys on that one?!?   :-\

Wonder what the Sandtrooper will finally settle in at in another month or two.  I'm gonna hold out for a while to see how things look down the line just a bit...

Updated the ol' Official Unofficial Kubrick checklist here too.   ;)  Do we know what's coming out first yet - Series 3 or the TRU boxset?

Hey everyone, haven't been able to get on jedidefender lately for some odd reason.  I can get to every other site I want to go to with ease, but I haven't been able to get in here since the last time I posted.  Wow, great news for the pre-order from BBTS.  I love dealing with them.  They have hooked me up pretty good in the past with some Matrix, Marvel, & Star Wars series 2 Kubrick's.  I think I'm going for a master case as well.  Cheaper in the long run to buy a complete set with chases, but it's just so much fun to open a few cases of Kubrick's.  So here are some updates on my collection.  

I received my carded Sandtrooper from Kozik about a week ago.   ;D
I would like to thank Simon for making that awesome trade possible.  

 

I also received three acrylic cases from Oscar's cases for my carded Kub's.  



Bad news is they sent me three cases for a Luke.  So the others won't fit.  The good news is they are making me new ones for no extra cost, and they are letting me keep the others as an apology for sending me the wrong ones.  So if you need a case for a Luke let me know.  As soon as I get the replacements in hand I will hook anyone up with the Luke cases for the cost of shipping only.  

In other news I just ordered a Medicom vinyl Fett from Spanky.  I have wanted that thing so bad since I first laid eyes on it.  I got it for approx. $125 plus shipping.  For those who still need an Early Bird set, Spanky has them back in stock for 10,000 yen.  That's a steal IMO.  I guarantee once series 3 comes out the Kubrick hype will be stronger than ever and the prices will go back up.  So it's good to be back, as I have missed talking Star Wars Kub's with everyone here.   Can't wait for series 3 and the TRU Japan boxed set.  :)

Very nice.  8)  Thoses cases from Oscar are awesome, glad there replacing the mix-up.

Might be awhile before HLJ puts there pre-order online for series 3. Hope they do soon or I may has to go the BBTS way.

Incase any cares, Andy Thong aka dip**** (Popsalute) is back in business on eBay. Looks like the suspension is lifted.  >:(  Like what, a whole 2 bloody weeks!

Are the Oscar cases different for Luke than for R2?  I did not know this :-\
