I like these.  Target has an Ion Man's Lab on clearance for $5, but I haven't gone for it yet.

Thanks for the news Jay. I love that death star scene for kubricks. Do you know what stores will carry these, or pricepoint?

I need to get some pics posted- I've been having some fun making kubrick dioramas. Is photobucket pretty easy to use?

I'm a big photobucket fan.  You just need to register and upload.  Then it gives you easy links for sharing in threads, email, direct link, etc.  I can upload them for you too if you like.

Less than $10 I think.

That looks really awesome!  Great looking display... the Hasbro and Kubrick pieces really seem to go together nicely!

Display is looking terrific Dan!  I love the Sandcrawler in there with the Jawas.

Thanks guys, it's been a fun way to keep engaged with the SW kubes despite the lack of product. Here are a few other shots-

Props to Yak-face Jayson for the cool vinyl kubrick banner at the bottom of the cabinet! And Justin for feeding my addiction with Hammerhead to make the cantina more complete...

The background picture for the sandcrawler is Moab Utah, in Arches national park. We had some sand we had saved in a bottle from there, and I used some spray adhesive and put some on the display area to make it blend with the picture. It seems to be a good fit for the R2 capture canyon area.

Wow!!!!  Those scenes turned out great Dan.  The Tatooine one is my favorite - love how you blended the scenes together.  The Cantina is pretty slick too, especially with the Monster from the Black Lagoon snuck in there.   ;)  That cabinet display for the carded figs is pretty sweet.  Is that the case you were mentioning before?  I wonder how many loose Kubes I could fit in there?  Looks a lot more professional than My JL cases.  Thanks for sharing your awesome pics!
