I ordered a box of series 4 from toynk in Chicago a couple of weeks ago. The box bottom was loose (like the glue had been broken) and I figured I had a repacked box on my hands. 

Opening boxes of Kubricks from the bottom is easier than opening along the perforations at the top, at least in my experience.  They're very frugal with the glue these days, both on the boxes inside and those that contain the individual pieces.  My series one boxes are pretty much shredded at whatever end I opened but series five almost popped open without trying. 

I remember buying a Series 2 solo box off eBay and pulling Indiana Jones - man was that a great feeling!   ;D

Wicket isn`t as bad as I thought, and K-3PO is probably my farvorite of the
set (with Luke a close second)

lol, I`m suprised there wasn`t paint on the baggies with how strong
they smelled!
They are funny though, nice addition and petty cheap too. I love the BIG HEADS they
have!

I finally went and opened all of my kubricks (they had been stowed away still in the bags since the early bird kit) and put them out. They are fantastic! I now consider myself a happily suffering kubrickaholic.

Now I am finding myself eyeing those 400% guys... ::)

Happy New Year everyone, and thank you to the Jedidefender staff for keeping up such a great site!  ;D

For those who have not seen this aution, the seller is using the picture from our archive without permission so I would be careful on bidding it. eBay has been informed but like the last one (loose Logray), it had to go through eBay in Europe and they did squat!  ********!  >:(

RARE STAR WARS SANDTROOPER KUBRICK FROM EXHIBITION 04

Forgot to mention, the seller even copied our text for his auction!  >:(

Is it possible to e-mail the bidder to warn him?  I can't find a way to do that.

I'm already working on that.  ;)

Click the bidders feedback number and on the right hand side it mentions "Contact Member". Click that and your set.  :)
