I love how the seller is trying to make this look legit by putting it in a 'sealed bag'...

So, what in the heck is that thing?  The lower part looks like a legit Kubrick but I'm trying to figure out about the head.

Nope, just shows some people like to steal other pics from other seller. A big turn off.

Then it's a good thing these are quick, one time transactions instead of a real relationship.   ;)

Looks like a LEGO version? Could be a knockoff from something like one of these sets.

I don't care how cool the Series 8 Battledroid is, this is a total rip-off.   ;)

Surely, that was supposed to be $6.99.

Depends - is that with or without shipping?

Anyone else looking to track down this RARE Series 4 CPO3 1 pc ?  $40 for what may be the only CPO3 figure ever is a helluva good deal!

I've just noticed on ebay the Toys-R-Us Exclusive Boxset 2 for $30 item number 380156509907. The low price has got thinking it's a dodgy deal but as I'm new to Kubricks I don't really know. Do you guys think this is a fair price for that boxset, I'm desperate to buy it so your thoughts would be appreciated, thanks.

It's a common set, nothing to worry about & the seller is well known. That's about average for the set.
