Hey Guys,

Thanks for the welcome!       :)

Yes, I am the one that was mentioned on Rebelscum.com a few weeks ago.

I live here in the U.S. and wasn't able to go to the Medicom show, but did find out about the MOC Fett exclusive figure from Rebelscum.com on the day of the show which was June 7th.       They posted a picture of that figure and I knew I HAD to have one for my collection!

What I did was start looking for sellers on e-Bay in Japan or Hong Kong that sold Kubricks AND Star Wars related items.       I e-mailed a TON of people and even over there, most had not even heard it was given away at all!

On the 8th of June, someone did reply saying they could get one for me for $260.00.        Long story short, I Paypaled him the money and then the person he was getting it from backed out!       He tracked down 2 other people for me that had one, but they did not want to sell either!       I did get my money back, BTW.      :)

So... more e-mailing!

Then on June 15th, I hooked up with a very reputable dealer in Hong Kong.       $400.00 Paypaled and a few days later, I had my MOC Fett!     :)

Then they started showing up on e-Bay selling for $500.00 and I'd heard that's what they were selling for on the Yahoo Japan auctions as well.

I did also get the MOC Luke a few days ago along with the 9"x11" Art Of Star Wars ad poster and a rare first day entry ticket when the fella picked up the Luke.

It's odd how they stopped selling the MOC Luke's in the gift shop all of a sudden!?!?!        What's the story behind that?      

I also heard that only 100 of the MOC Fett's were given away on June 6th. and only 148 of the MOC Luke's were sold in the gift shop.

These have to be some of the rarest licensed SW items ever!

BTW... I'm also in the market for both of the boxed "Variation" Kubrick Fett's!!!       The "Prototype" which is also the carded version and the "ROTJ" version if anyone has these they'd like to sell.

Nice to be here and check out the custom acrylic cases!      I'm really happy with mine and it's also not a large "retro-fitted" case either!       It's totally in scale with the smaller Kubrick card!!!      :)

- Jim      

P.S.    Hey Simon!      Thanks for the Luke and the extras!      ;)

Could you post those pictures I sent to you here?

Jim to JD.

Wow! I musy say Congrats on getting the 2 carded Kubrick figures.  8)

You may have to look around on eBay to find the variants you need. There is only one member right now that has both the variants & I don't think he will give them up.
Notice that I said "one member right now".   ;)   :-X   ;D

There are 2 on eBay right now.

Chase2

Thanks for the link on the cases. Must check them out.

If anyone is looking for a carded Boba Fett from Japan, looky, looky:

Boba Kubrick Bape

Seller will ship internationally.  Postal or Bank $$$ transfer.
Looks to be a BIN of $330. US.

I used this onlin translator to get some information. Works better using the URL translator.

Well, it looks like I'll finally be getting my mitts on the Early Bird set thanks to Simon here.   8)  Kudos to Mike for the suggestion as well!  Still need that ROTJ Chase Fett though...   :-\

Judging by those numbers Jim just quoted on the carded Kubricks, I probably won't ever be able to get either of those.  As much as that will forever gnaw at my completist tendencies, I just can't drop that kind of moolah on those right now (or anytime in the near future).  The wife would have my head!   :o

Congrats on picking both of those up Jim!  Those are an awesome addition to anyone's collection.  If anyone's else has got an extra $650+ lying around, you can snag them both right here or here.   ;)

Too bad none of us snagged this carded Kubrick Fett for only $0.88...   :o  :P

Here's a nice shot of the Bounty Hunters in some of the official individual Kubrick cases (I think).



So, does anyone have any word yet on when Series 2 is due to hit?

I'm sure liking those cases.  8)  

That seller ended the auction to sell to the top bidder.
The seller ended this listing early to sell to the high bidder(s) at current bid price.

He must have liked the bid he made as there were 3 other bidders.

The bidder may have made an offer to end the auction.

I just checked HLJ & there is nothing on Series 2 yet. I check daily so if they ever have them posted, I will sound the alarm.  ;)

I can't wait for the 2nd series to come, but I'm still missing a few of the original Kubricks (Boba Fett ROTJ, 4-LOM, and Dengar).  The Sandtrooper is definitely going to be my favorite of the 2nd series.

Dale, take them out of their baggies.  There's no reason to keep them in there.  They're much better looking if they can stand up on their own, and be able to breathe the fresh air.   :-*

Dale... great snag on the two variation Boba Fett's!    :)

I'd like to get both of those, as well.

I wonder if any more figures are planned to be released on cards???


BTW... I wouldn't take them out of the bags!
