I see that logic. In some ways i agree but i just think that it was something that was going to happen eventually. Series 8 will probably give us a better indication of how things will go. Now we just have to play the waiting game.

I agree Dan, these guys have been the sharpest of the bunch by a long shot and that's probably why that blue Royal Guard is so disturbing.  We all had thoughts for the chase figures that weren't prequel figures.  I can understand that it might be a creative way to save on tooling costs, and if that was the decision maker, I'm just fine with that.  If it's a harbinger of the future, not so great. 

I'm not about to up and drop the line, but a few PT figures will prevent me from ordering a full case.  I'd probably drop back to a box or perhaps even just track down a set without the chase figures.  I think a Maul could be neat but part of the draw for me to this line has been that intelligence Medicom has displayed by understanding the vintage line so well.  There's tons of companies out there doing prequel stuff but only one doing a really good homage to the vintage lineup (no disrespect to Hasbro's VOTC stuff, it's great). 

Well, that's pretty hard-core that you'd cut back. I'm such an addict and a completionist that I wouldn't be as happy as if there were only OT figures, but I'd probably continue to collect them the same as always.

I'm with Morgbug.  I refuse to buy the Kubrick Blue Guard and will refuse to buy any Kubrick Prequel figures.

In my mind they don't exist.

Saved myself at least $20.

I didn't keep my blue guards becuase I just plain didn't like them. This is actually the first series that I didn't keep the 2/48 chase. As for the PT issue, there are some characters that I wouldn't mind owning but if they were to start making lines solely of PT characters then I would stop buying sets/cases...

Looks like Star Wars Kubricks MAY be dead. 

It was rumored to be dead according to Ken Lilly formally of Palisades Toys after series 5 but we got two more waves at the very least.

Hopefully the line is not dead, although the pulse rate seems very weak.

I really hope this is not the case.  I just started collecting the little guys.  Hope they give us some more.

SW is too big of a cash cow for them to let it die. And how would Ken Lilly know? Bob Dylan SW fan may be right, this weekend may bring us good news...

In the past were they debuted at the show first rather than the website????

It has happened more than once I believe...for instance the Biker Scout Speeder Bike Set, the Blackhole Kubrick and way back to series 2

http://www.jedidefender.com/yabbse/index.php?topic=14548.msg17603#msg17603

So its happened, not too often but it has happened
