hi, i'm new to jdforums..

anyway i gotta say these guys are trying their luck too much..

must be trying to target pple who are new to kubricks/ebay and have a bit of cash to spend.. hoping they will worry that they're hard to find so they will buy it at their buy-now prices..

jst look at the metal gear snake eater.. the price is obscene man..
and they're all the same guy.. he must be like this now..  ;D

but its quite good business ah... fancy getting like 10000% profit.. enough to cover for his/her entire japan trip..

Hi Yujun.

It's Simon in Japan here. I think we were speaking a few weeks back. Welcome to JD.  The friendliest boards in Star Wars collecting world. Enjoy the stay.

I'm not sure how the jawas and the logray are split, But i got a box from bbts and got the logray and i got a box from hlj and got the jawa. The boxes had a different lay out in my box from bbts the hans were in the front. The box from hlj had the hans in the back. First series i bought boxes for and came out pretty good. I would send a pic but not real sure how to do that.

Sounds like the Hong Kong/Japan ratio to me. BBTS may have got theres from Hong Kong, in the last series, BBTS had the Cantina Band member with the instrument that goes around his neck & the Japan version had the Cantina member with the stand.

If you want to post a pic, you need a hosting site to upload the pictures or you can send the pic to a staff member & we would be happy to host it for you.  :)

OK, heres your picture.  ;)



Just a tad blurry, I get that too when I get close to the figs for a close up.

So you bought 1 box from BBTS & got Logary & one box from HLJ & got a Vinyl Jawa?

I too want Leia, I don't necessarily want a carded one either, I'd take a beat up one to have open

I got our case from BBTS and got the Vinyl Jawa. Is there any markings on the box to tell where it came from?

I just ordered a box and not a case. They were the same on the outside. I got really lucky on the two boxes. Just picked up a han on ebay for seven dollars, so my set is complete.

I want all of these damn things loose.  Never see them that way, so what to do?  Buy them and cut them loose :o  I'm having the same dilemma with the Droids regular 3PO and R2 :-\

I think I bid on a beat up R2 a while back but didn't win, not getting a Sandy either, not worth the $300+, same goes for Fett, R2 and Leia Droids Fett though I will buy eventually

Wow! I just had my first look the the exclusive TRU set on another site! Sweet! Nicely boxed just like the Speeder Bike set. It does have Toys R Us printed on the front bottom of the box though. The Star Wars logo is covering about the bottom half of Holo Ben & a almost the bottom half of Han.  :-\

Overall, a very nice set. Guess I'll have to get Oscar to make me another display case!  ;)
