I got the Vader off of Ebay a week ago.  The bubble is damaged which when displayed in a case can't even be noticed.  The card has some very slight wear.  Overall a great deal.

I won't steal his thunder but I know the last one was a virtual steal.

I didn't write down the first one, so I can't remember how much it actually was.  I want to say it was in the $60-$70 range plus shipping.  The one I just got ran me $50 shipped.  I was outbid with 6 seconds left on the auction.  I e-mailed the seller to ask if they had any extras and if they would consider a second chance and the offer showed up within the hour...  Knowing what they have gone for in recent auctions, I consider $50 shipped a pretty good price for one of these.

My carded bounty hunters arrived today.  I think I'll be leaving them in the outer envelope. 8)

I got a carded Parco Vader and Jorg Sacul from a member on Kubrick Nation this week. And my box of 12 series 8. Unfortunately no chases though.

Bought the bounty hunter set on ebay. Missed the fine print that the backing wasn't included and the package must have been kicked around a few times from overseas. And of course it wasn't packed well and the cards on them are trashed.   >:(

We're in Japan at the moment visiting my wife's family, and so I decided to take the opportunity to find some Kubricks. Strangely, I had *very* little luck finding Kubricks of any kind in Osaka's DenDen Town, but I did find some good online stores, and just today I found a fantastic store hidden away in my wife's (relatively small) hometown. They had all sorts of Kubricks, and quite a few Star Wars ones. The prices weren't too bad. Better than ebay, in any case. My purchases break down like this:

In stores:
Scout Trooper + Speederbike set
Star Wars Series 4 & 5 sets
Tron Sets C & D
A few miscellaneous Star Wars Kubricks

Online:
Two 400% Darth Vader Kubricks (it was either pay over $50 for one with shipping or pay $80 for two and get free shipping, so I decided to get two)
Minority Report box of 24
Edward Scissorhands box
Monsters Inc sets 1 & 2 (minus Yeti)
Sesame Street series 2 + Ernie
Universal Monsters series 1 & 2
Back to the Future normal figures
5,000 yen Kubrick grab bag (included Kubricks from a number of different series, like Alien, Kelloggs, Disney, Marvel and a Kaws Kubrick set)
+ various miscellaneous Kubricks

I was happy that I got a chase figure in my box of Minority Report Kubricks (Lara Clarke) and was amazed to find a blue Snaggletooth in my set of Star Wars series 5 figures. I thought for sure they would have removed the chases, but no. Anyway, I spent way too much, but it was fun.

Awesome score on the blue snag  :o  That had to be such a huge treat to open that up.
