I'm really psyched right now! :) My chase Fett ended up going for $85.00! I was hoping to get enough just to cover the ROTJ Chase Fett which I paid $64.00 for. And after selling the left over non-Chase Bobas, I ended up paying a total of about $10.00 a piece for each of the two chase figures! :) Now, if I could only get the carded Kubricks....

That's great Adam!  I had that on my eBay watch list just to see how you made out on it, but hadn't checked in on it lately to see where it finally ended.  That's very cool that you covered the cost on the other variant, and that you've essentially gotten them all for about $10 each.  That's the way to do it!  Now those carded guys are going to be a different story though...   :'(

BTW Dale, I wasn't able to make the Anime/Japanese toy convention down in Anaheim this weekend.  Sorry bud, don't kill me please!   :P  Patty and I were a couple hours north up at the in-laws house for the Holiday weekend, and I just couldn't get away to make the trip all the way down to the convention.  Oh well.  I'm sure they didn't have anything good...   ;)  Forgive me?!   :-*

So has anyone gotten word on when Series 2 is due to hit yet?

Well here they all are, Boba and his two misfit brothers...

Great comparison analysis and pictures there between the 3 Fetts Adam!  A couple more differences in there that I wasn't even aware of, so good job!  Nice to see all 3 of them opened (don't listen to Dale) and lined up for the first time ever...   8)

So what's with your delay on the carded Luke?!?  I figured you'd be all over that one!   ;)  I really just can't see myself dropping more than a hundred bucks on either of the carded Kubricks really.  I'd much rather pick up a few real nice carded vintage figures instead...   :-\

I agree with Dale, that was a very nice comparison of the three different Fetts.  The pictures are great too.  Nice job!   8)

They can make ANY size acrylic case you might need!

They just made one for my Exclusive Medicom MOC Kubrick Boba Fett and the case was noting but PERFECT!!!

I e-mailed them the exact diamentions and about a week later I had the case.

Welcome to JD :)

Your name sounds familiar, did you send pictures and a description of your carded Boba to Rebelscum by chance?

If you dont mind sharing, how'd you get your carded Fett?

Welcome to JediDefender, indeed Jim!  Glad to have ya' hear, especially if you're an ardent Kubrick collector!   8)  Must say that you're the only one here who's been fortunate enough to have snagged one of the two beautiful carded Kubricks, though we've definitely been eyeing them for a while now...

Like Adam, I'm curious to hear your story!  Did you actually attend the Medicom show out in Japan, or did you go all out and plunk down a phat chunk of change for the carded Fett?  Either way, great score!  We're most envious!  Got any pix to show off to the gang here?  Did you get the Luke as well?

Thanks for the tip on the cases too.  I'm sure we'll be checking in to them.  Hopefully we'll see you around the JD boards a little more Jim!
