I see it now.  Really nice set up.

Thanks!  It was quite a labor of love, not to mention a severe pocket book drain.

Well, let's see: I see about 10 rows of 14 cases = 140 cases @ a couple bucks each...

Yeah, I'd say it must have been a heck of a pocket book drain.   :o

Looks pretty impressive to see all those Kubricks together like that though!

Having free shipping from New York certainly helped.  I just rationalized it by considering it like a chase figure or 2.  To be honest, it was quite painful opening all of my chase figures, did you notice all the carded figs I opened.  I could practically hear their worth draining as I cut open the plastic... :'(

Nice job StealthTank!  I have had similar thoughts of expanding out my Johnny Lightning display to showcase all of my Kubricks...



But alas, I don't think my wife will let me wallpaper the basement with Toys :-[

on a sadder note I've been checking ebay for a few weeks now and haven't been able to find a carded Droids R2-D2 for less than $100+  :'(

guess I just have to be patient..

Thanks Scott.  I remember when you were putting your collection together; exciting times.  Yeah, the spouse factor is huge with toy display.  I have had all my kubs stashed away in plastic bins, still in their plastic for a while now; I just never had the nerve to open them all up and display them.  Finally, I decided last night that I was going to go big. 

In fact, I think I have enough ceiling room to move about three more stories of kubs onto the top.  Just need to find my step ladder.   ;D

I just received my series 3 case (of 12) from National Console Support and pulled a Vinyl Jawa :o, my 1st (1/96) chase figure. I was hoping for a Logray but beggars can't be choosers ;D.

Now to keep it or sell/trade for a chase I really want???

Well, if you don`t want it, I`d say sell it. Maybe Simon can track down a Logray
or Walrus Man for you if you ask.

Where do you guys get those plastic cubes for display?  Are they available in the U.S. or online anywhere?  I need a good system like that to display my Kubes.
