I say we all get our cases from Oscar Didier.

Apparently Oscar in is town taking courses at the University of Alberta. I'll get ahold of Shane & he can pass the message to him if he is still here.  ;)

Not a bad opening price on eBay for them.

Hello everyone,

Can anyone give me an idea of how much the Speeder Bike sets cost- retail?  Will they be widely released or is it just a limited thing?   Thanks!  Tony

Hi Tony,
overseas release only.  Presume Japan and possibly Hong Kong.  Mail in orders only and those happened some months ago.  Price for them with shipping works out to around $75 or so to the door at cost.  I expect they are only now to be found on ebay or online retailers that may have ordered some extras.  

Others here can provide more detail, I just saw it first :)

A better option than ebay probably is to get one from Spanky.  They are a Japan shop and have a great selection of Kubrick's.  I have ordered from them a few times and they ship EMS and are lightning fast.  They are charging approximately $63.00 for it and with shipping it would probably be around $76.00 delivered to your door.  Send them an email describing what you are interested in and where you are from.  They will promptly reply with the total cost.  Hope this helps to those who want one.

Yep, send them an email in English stating in detail what you want, where you live, and how you would like to pay.  They will send an email back to you with the total cost.  Then you can either pay by paypal or credit card.  To pay by credit card you have to give them the info over email.  Do not feel at risk, they are legit and are great to deal with.
