From JediMAC: Alright, since our prior Kubrick thread was getting too big, it's time to start all over again with yet another new one - so here we go with Star Wars Kubrick thread #6 - Attack of the Kubricks!  Good time to start over, with Dale's news on the Series 4 figures!  So here's a quick recap of our Kubrick history here at JD, for anyone looking to catch up on things: Revenge of the Kubricks! (part 5), Power of the Kubricks! (part 4), Return of the Kubricks! (part 3), The Kubricks Strike Back (part 2), and if you want to read all the way back to the original thread that started it all, New Star Wars Kubricks (part 1).  Now carry on, and enjoy the Kubrickmania, here at JD!
--------------------------------


Series 4



Darth Vader, Stormtrooper, Emperor Palpatine, Luke Bespin, Han Hoth and Nien Nunb.

**** me, I'm excited!  8)

Holy God!!!

Maybe that post would be a good spot to start up an all-new Kubrick thread.  We're pretty overdue, as this one's gotten huge, and I know Scott's probably growing pretty antsy about it...   ;)

Now that is sweet :o  I'll try hard not to order a case ahead of time, but this just injected a lot of enthusiasm back into the line for me.  I was languishing, not really loving the last couple of releases while still liking them.  That is just awesome.

I'm just dumbfounded that we're getting another all-OT series.  Man, Medicom must seriously dislike the Prequels, 'cause I was sure that they'd be taking advantage of the ROTS hoopla and finally putting out some Prequel stuff.  Guess not.  That's excellent news to me!

So, who's in for guesses on the chase figures?!  Mine:

Blue Coat Hoth Han
RH Vader

Yep, that's what it'll be.  You heard it here first.   :-*

Holy f'n amazing!

This, is one of the greatest waves of figures ever!

Hoth Han = Brown Coat!
Nein Nunb is a tad bit blah
Luke looks great

But the troika of Emperor, Stormie and Vader...all too sweet.  I was getting a little bit bummed after the Rebo set prices were set but this more than makes up for it!

Oh...and I'll be buying a 12" RAH Vader...that may be the greatest thing since Kubrick Series 4

Very nice.  It's great to see them tackle more of the main characters.  They even look scaled nicely with Vader being the tallest.  Since I'm a Vader fanatic, I don't imagine I'll be able to pass up on this one.

They just hit one out of the park.  Beauty.

WOW!

Here's my Kubrick "Most Wanted" list for the next few waves:

Wave 4: Return of the Jedi
1.  Darth Vader (3:12) w/Spirit Anakin Chase (1:96)
2.  Yoda (3:12) w/Spirit Yoda Chase (1:96)
3.  Slave Leia (3:12) w/ Boushh Chase (3:48)
4.  The Emperor (1:12)
5.  Jedi Luke (1:12)
6.  Stormtrooper (1:12)

Cool, I got 3/6 of my Most Wanted in Series 4 and I can handle Bespin Luke instead of Jedi Luke so that's 4/6, very nice!

I'll have to go with the Han for a Variant (based on the fact that the S2 and S3 both had Han variants), but I'll stick with my Spirit Anakin Chase guess for Vader.   :)

Not available on HLJ just yet :P

Any word on the cost/availability of the RAH Vader?  I don't really need another expensive Vader item, but that won't stop me.
