Can't wait to get my Series 5 set from Jeff on Wednesday and I can fill them up!

And I can't wait to grab my TRU Box Set#2 from you on Wednesday so I can work on filling up my Johnny Lightning cases.    ;) ;D

Might have to take a few updated pictures of my Kuby Shelves once that 5-Pack is opened and set up...

Got my Johnny Lightning Cases all set to go (picked them up at TRU last weekend!).  Can't wait to get my Series 5 set from Jeff on Wednesday and I can fill them up!

What Johnny Lighting cases do you use and what does it look like set up? Pics?

Just turn them on end and interlock them together.

Noticed same seller had quite a few things up.
Rebo band closed at 160+
Han Trooper 90+
Walrus Man 120
Luke/Leia Speeder set 107

Rebo Band seems to be going up and not sure why that Han Trooper went
that high, I think he had a Luke that ended in the 40s.


I was watching that Speeder set. I was shocked to see it go that high. The last one listed only went to 60 or 70 if I remember correctly...
Hey, good to see you over here at JD!
Last one I saw was 79 or so I think.
The one I don`t understand in the Han Trooper. When that series first came
out, a few went BIN for around that price, then settled down to 40-55 range.
I guess 2 people just watned that Han bad enough. A little searching and
I think they could have found it cheaper...
Good to see that these are still holding interest from people, hope it means
more to come! Not TOO soon though, my wallet is still smokin` from last
month, heh  ;D

Here's Scott's picture from a few pages back...




I left holes for ANH characters I still will be getting soon from Wave 5 and the new Box Set...plus Han and Luke Stormie which I haven't unwrapped yet. Next time I head to the big city, maybe I'll swing by TRU and pick up the rest I need.


And welcome to JD.  Nice to see another KubrickWorld member make their way over here...  ;)

How much do they go for?
Toy Tokyo had these:
https://www.toytokyo.com/shopping/index.php/page/product/product_id/6077
but sold out now.
I forgot to post about it here!  :-[
I ordered 3 of them when I first saw it and totally forgot about it till Stealth mentioned it over at KW.

I've seen them as cheap as $4.99 up to about $7.99 if you buy them at a Hobby Shop (like a RC or Model hobby shop).

I think they are usually $5.99 or $6.99 at TRU... but I haven't grabbed any there in a while.

That's frikkin' sweet! I might have a huge mirrored case coming from my father-in-law's old hobby shop but I have to fix/clean it up a bit first...

Honorius auction:
http://cgi.ebay.com/Sale-STAR-WARS-card-KUBRICK-set-of-7-Boba-Fett_W0QQitemZ6028310307QQcategoryZ36553QQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem
All of the carded kubs, 918 BIN.
Actually, not TOO bad of a price if someone wanted to grab em` all in one
shot.
Bape Fett, Parco Sandy and Vader all about 200 each or so (averaged together) 600 bucks
Droids Fett 75 ish
Droids R2 (seen them go over 100, but..) 80ish
Luke 75ish
Leia 50ish
Comes to about 880. Add 10 shipping on each if bought seperately so 950.
918+26: 944 or there abouts.
Wish I had a grand to blow!

Yeah, that's tempting, Adam, and I love seeing them all in one group shot like this!  I haven't pursued any of the high-end carded Kuby's (Fett, Sandtrooper, Vader), and I still need an opener of the Droids Fett, Holo Leia, and Blonde Luke, so that auction would fill almost every last hole of mine.  Of course, it would likely mean getting divorced, so I think I better pass...  :P

Ditto - I still need 4 of those carded and could use the other 3 as "openers" as well, but nabbing that auction would likely mean sleeping on the couch in the garage for a looooong time, so I think I'll just pass on those too.   :P

Here's a couple shots of my Medicom clear display cases interlocked...  I'm not sure if Toytokyo.com has any left, however when I called them recently to order some, they stated that they had a ton of them (and can get more) even though the web page had stated that they were out at that time.  Maybe worth a phone call if you are interested.

Damn that's impressive.  Why are Boba, Han and Obi Wan facing sideways?

That shot is actually from the left side of "Mount Kubrick."  If you want to check out more pics, I have them here.  Cheers.
