That robe looks hysterical.  Great idea.  I wonder if you trimmed it down a little bit if it would look perfect.

I don't know - his cloak was kind of overflowing like that in the movie - not a simple cape like Vader has.  I think it looks pretty sweet that way.

I agree the cloak should be longer than Vader's cape, but its still a bit excessively long (my opinion  ;))

Well, based on what Jon found (or didn't find, as is the case), it looks like you can add a 4th confirmed case pack -

6x Case 1 - Jar Jar & Aurra Sing
2x Case 2 - Only Jar Jar Binks
1x Case 3 - Only Saesee Tiin
1x Case 4 - Only Aurra Sing

*Based on what the Hong Kong ebayers are saying, I'm sure there are Jar Jar & Saesee Tiin case packs out there too.

We can add another 'Only Saesee Tiin' case to the list.  Someone over on Kubrick Nation bought a master case and only got Tiin.

I got my Saesee Tiin today.  I'm very pleased to have him but as with all my chases I end up scrutinizing the details.  Mine has wobbly legs and it seems like his right leg is a little longer than his left.  Also the horns have a lot "flash" on them left over from the casting process.  However, I'm not anxious to try and fix those.

Seeing this figure in person really makes me want to get Kit Fisto, Plo Koon, and Ki Adi Mundi as Jedi Kubricks!

So I was looking at the Saesee Tiin chase and was wondering why Medicom decided not to put the head tattoo on the back of his head.  In every Hasbro release that there has been, the tattoo is there in some iteration.  I'm used to seeing very good attention to detail with the Kubrick figures and was surprised that they left this detail out.

Big day for deliveries, huh DSJ?

P.S.  Doesn't that lightsaber burn his hands?

Oh yes, a very big day for Kuby goodness.  ;D

Burn his hands, yeah kinda & Qui Gon's too & Maul looks pissed with both his hands holding the lightsabers.  :D

The lightsabers are very long for these Medicom cases, I don't want to break them.  ;)

Is Anakin holding something?  I didn't think he came with any accessories?

EDIT:  Damn, I just checked other photos and he his holding something. I think I must have thrown that away. It looks like I might have to open one of my sealed boxes to get it. That sucks.

I even remember commenting to I am Sith when we were opening them that I was surprised he didn't have an accessory.  :'(

Ummm, yes he did come with an accessorie. Did you not get one?





Edit, I see you figured it out. You must look very closely at the clear baggies these Kuby's come in. I had one that the accessorie fell out as it was not heat sealed at one end.

Speaking of accessories, I should have posted before- consider me the unlucky lesson-learner for the rest of you opening Aurra- the rifle strap may look like you can move it, but doing so "moves" the rifle in half. I glued it back together and since I can't see ever selling it, it doesn't matter much. But it sucked, none the less. Sucked in a bad way.

Damn.  Well, I'm sure I didn't see an accessory with him.  All is not lost in that I've got 2 more of these guys left but they are in sealed boxes of 12.  :-\

OK DSJ, this may sound insane, but looking at you Qui-Gon, you need to put his other foot on the peg then place the saber in his right hand so it goes across his chest and he will be holding the saber handle just fine without having to burn his hands,
