Yep, the bubble is a tad bigger than the other bubbles, sticks out more too. May need a new custom case made for this puppy!  ;)

Congrat's on your score Dale.   ;D  I was praying Droids Fett would be the same size as the carded Sandy and R2.  Drat!

It's not much yet, but...



Well, I managed to nab a few more of these little guys in a trade, so very soon I'll be adding Greedo/Tusken/Obi-Wan to my shelf!   ;D

Still watching eBay for cheap speederbike sets to pop up...

Can you give us a picture of the entire collection Dale? I don't think I've ever seen a picture of a complete (up to now anyway) collection before.

I'm off to Australia for 2 weeks lads, so hopefully those box sets won't come out between now and then. Doesn't look like it though.

Thanks for the congrats gang.  :)

If I ever get these Kubrick's properly displayed, I'll take some pic's of the whole collection. I still have to work on the display cases for the singles & get me some cases from Oscar for the carded ones.

Have fun in Australia Simon & be safe!  :)

Picked up my Fett/4-LOM/Zuckuss/Dengar package at the Post Office today on my way to work!   ;D

I cracked open each of the boxes and they are all really cool!  Now I just have to finish off my Mos Eisley set so I can get cracking on the early bird set and the speederbike set...

I'll have to update my picture of my "collection" when I get home from work.  ;)

Jeff

ps.
I opened my boxed Fett... two green gauntlets.  That's the regular version, yes?  No chase for me :(

Yep, thats a regular ESB version so no chase for you.  :'(

The chases are (ROTJ version w/ 2 red gauntlets) & (Vintage version w/ 1 yellow and 1 red gauntlet).

Nice to see you catching up abit on the Kubrick's!  8)

Won an auction for a full box of Series two for $99 shipped.

I'm going to split the case with two friends, so that way, I get the last four I need (Obi-Wan, Greedo, Tusken, White Pad Sandtrooper) and I'll only be stuck with 1 Sandtrooper and 1 Han (and I may have a lead on selling those two as well). 

Plus, with a whole case, I'll end up with 3 chances at Indy... maybe I'll get lucky?  :-\

Um, how do you know the case has the white sandtrooper?  Isn't the orange the regular?  I know the cases were odd, Dale's boxes had all orange or all white, but I don't think I heard of any mixed boxes.

Brent's right. It's a hit & miss on the Sandtroopers. If it's a sealed box then theres no way you will now what you will have till you open them.  :-*

Orange is regular & white is the chase. Out of 4 boxes (1 master case) 3 I opened & 1 box had the white. The other sealed one the Matt Brand received from me had white. 

There have been no mixed boxes that I have heard about.

Um....  I should have been clearer.   :-\

If my case is all orange Sandtroopers (as I assume it will be), then my plan is to trade a Orange Pad Trooper from the case to one of those guys I am splitting the case with for the White Pad Sandtrooper.  He has the white pad sandtrooper (he bought at comics shop), but he doesn't really care which one he has, so he's willing to swap white for an orange if I need to find one!

Under this scenario, it'll look like this:
1x Greedo - for me
1x Tusken - for me
1x Obi-Wan - for me
2x Cantina Band Member - sell 1 to pal #1, sell the other to pal #2
3x Han - sell 1 to pal #1, sell 1 to pal #2, 1 extra/leftover
4x Sandtrooper (Orange Pad) - Trade 1 to pal #1 (for white Sandtrooper), sell two to pal #2, 1 extra/left over


BUT, if my case does indeed have white pad sandtroopers, well then, I'll just get one from the case and pal #1 won't care about trading since he has a white Pad Trooper.

Under this scenario, it'll look like this:
1x Greedo - for me
1x Tusken - for me
1x Obi-Wan - for me
2x Cantina Band Member - sell 1 to pal #1, sell the other to pal #2
3x Han - sell 1 to pal #1, sell 1 to pal #2, 1 extra/leftover
4x Sandtrooper (White Pad) - 1 for me, sell two to pal #2, 1 extra/left over

Either way, I end up with a White Pad Trooper :)

Sorry for the confusion, I was just trying to cut to the chase without all the messy details that I have now caused you to read!  :-[
