Eeeeeeeeeeeek!  :o

Dale looks over at his curio cabinet with a strange look on his face. Guess I'll have to check my carded figs out.  :-\

Man that sucks Jeff but as you mentioned, you wanted a loose R2 so might be a good thing.  :-\

Damn Jeff! Good thing it wasn't a Fett or Parco Sandtrooper.  :P

I've actually have had the same problem with 2 different 400% Boba Fetts. The glue just gave out completely leave the edge split. Now I haven't done any repairs yet but anyone have a tip for a good glue to use?

Well, I had something really strange happen to me tonight...

I was re-arranging my display shelves and while I was moving some stuff around, I noticed that my Droids R2-D2 bubble had completely detached from the card.  Since it was in an Oscar case, it wasn't noticable until I grabbed the case to move it and the bubble tipped right over in the case.

I tried in vain to re-attach it, but failed miserably.  As a precaution, I went back through the other 9 carded figures I have and they all seem to have nice firmly attached bubbles.  I have no idea what could have caused R2's bubble to pop off - just a weak glue job I guess.   :-\

The thing that was so strange about it was that I had been going back and forth about dropping the cash for another one to open to go with my Droids 3PO, so in a way, I guess fate made the decision for me.   :P
Yikes..that's scary..need to check  mine as well..

Whoa! Sorry man, but at least it happened to the figure you wanted loose anyway.

My new set of Bounty Hunters came a little sketchy too.  The corners weren't on too good.  Let's hope Medicom reads this.  That's a big investment.

No one know exactly how many of the Parco there are.  Estimates range from 150-300 for the show pieces, but there is no official information from Medicom on how many were made.  That is probably why you can't find an answer...

Bape Boba Fett - approximately 150 pieces
Luke Skywalker - originally about 200, but with the club re-release it is believed to be over 1000+
R2-D2 (Droids) - 2004 pieces
Sandtrooper (Black Pad) - approximately 200 pieces
Boba Fett (Droids)    - 2004 pieces
Princess Leia (Hologram) - 2004 pieces
Darth Vader - approximately 300 pieces
Jorg Sacul (X-Wing Pilot) - approximately 250 pieces
Shadow Stormtrooper - 2006 pieces
Han Solo (Carbonite) - approximately 250 pieces

I think I'll keep my carded kubs on their back when they are not displayed- maybe it will help lessen the strain on the glue...

If there was anything to it that I don't already own, then I'd be all over it.  But I'm just sitting and waiting on the blue stars.

Damn, I would have bought that...now I guess I'll have to wait

Down to needing:

Original Fett
Sandtrooper
Han Carbonite
Blackhole Stormtrooper
 
Han is probably the only one I'll get...maybe the Sandy...eventually

Sorry guys.  That was me.  I ended up retracting my bid so it's back up for the $80 BIN if you guys are still interested.  Again, sorry about that.
