No carded Kubs me thinks. They came out unannounced at the Medicom show in August or they were announced prior to other shows.

ive been really lucky with these chases...

picked up walrusman for 50 dollars at an online store, then today went to akihabara looking for the other 2 chases....

something weird happened . the shop had a box of open lukes, gunneres etc, so I figured he'd searched through and taken out the chases. So I ask him if he has them and he said "NO". I asked him if he had found them and he asked me how much Id pay for one :-\. before I had a chance to reply he blurted out "2000yen!". then he picks up a cases and starts opening all the gunners in front of me! he says thats where they are! he opened them al!!! and then apologised for not having one. I suggested we start on the snaggies next, worked our way through them then started on the Lukes.  Bingo! han solo in trench coat! he says "2000yen again, but I find the second han. realising they werent as rare as he thought he suddenly drops the price to 1000yen!  of course I took them both.

it turns out he found the walrusman earlier and had flogged it for the 2000yen.

I now know the joys of ripping my way through 3 boxes of a master case, and didnt have to pay a penny until I found the chases!

Christ, I hope he really was the shopkeeper....

Anyway,  thats my quota of luck for the month used up!

Sounds like fun! Wish stores here carried them, but not much interest
in kubricks here. The comic shop got in the last marvel and the boxsets, and
I don`t think anyone bought any.

I did manage to get Wally. Spanky had them up on the site the other day,
so I emailed about getting one. I was prepared to pay between 85-100 for
Snaggy and Wally on eBay, and Wally from Spanky came to a little over 80
shipped. Now to track down a Snaggy!

Spanky has Han Trench is stock, 4800 Yen.

Maybe at the show this weekend we will get to buy the set below?

Or maybe they will show off a new set.  I think a Jaba palace set would be awesome.

Also does anyone know where to get the new toysrus set from apart from the obivious toysrus japan?

As far as I know TRU Japan will only have the set, if it shows up in other stores they probably got them from someone who bought them at TRU.

I’m down with the “Crackbrick” sickness.

I had a dream last night that I went to TRU and found pegs full of Blue Snaggletooths and Walrusmans!

And an Exclusive Mos Eisley Cantina Playset to put the Tatooine Kubricks in!

LMAO, I knew you got a Ponda Baba from Spanky.  Mochizuki sent me 2 replies to my original email and one said Dear Adam.  I'm pretty sure I was able to get one as well.  I noticed the website is sold out, but I really doubt they would go ahead and sell me one if they couldn't fill the order.  Series 5 is done as long as they can fill my order.   ;D

Looks like someone bitching cause it comes out during the week, and not a
weekend day maybe?
I`m totally lost in that forum without pictures  ;)
