Very cool pick-ups guys.  I'm hoping I can get a Spirit Yoda eventually, just not at the $200+ asking prices these days.

I'll be posting some pics soon.  I went a little nuts on e-bay the last week. :(

I got a Sand Trooper, Obi Wan, Boba Fett, Tusken Raider, Greedo, and my 3rd Han Solo (!) in the last week.  Still missing a few core characters from series' 3 and 4, but my series 2 needs are met!  I also got some non-Star Wars Kubs in all 5 regular Muppets, movie Batman, Joker, and Catwoman, all of the non-Beyond Batman Animated figures, 3 apes from Planet of the Apes, and one of the Reservoir Dogs sets.  My Kubrick collection is almost half-way respectable now!

Got my Yoda spirit yesterday and i also got the Parco invitation as a little surprise. The only difference is my Yoda wasnt in the little baggy.

According to the USPS web-site, my Series 1 Chase Prototype Boba Fett is waiting patiently in my mailbox to be picked up.

Congrats!

Yesterday's mail had the series 2 carded set (I plan on keeping the sandtrooper and selling the rest) and my mastercase pick-up from Jeff.

Friday night will be kubfest!

I'm hoping you mean 'Spirit of Yoda' and not Obi-Wan...  While I like the Spirit of Obi-Wan figure, I wouldn't classify it as awesome myself ;)

No, I meant Obi Wan (I can't afford Yoda!).  And I do think that it is awesome, with his awesome translucent blue skin and white outlines of spirit-ness.

Out of curiosity, why is Yoda more awesome than Obi-Wan  ???  He doesn't even have any cool, white outlines indicating that he is clearly a scary ghost, and not simply a blue gelatin muppet.

Spirit of Obi-wan is just a very common figure that people can't even give away, while Yoda is an exclusive figure of which very few were made, so it's going for $200+ on ebay. Aesthetically, one isn't markedly better than the other (and as you say, I might in fact prefer Obi-wan).

Hmm, got my Yoda Spirit for $120, guess I got lucky.

But I like the other Spirits better, I think.  The whilte highlights really add to the look.  I would have preferred they used the series 5 Yoda as the base instead of series 9, since s9 is a Prequel version (younger Yoda), and the Spirit version should be the oldest version of the character (Lucas film redo of ROTJ ending notwithstanding... grr).  Like Spirit OB1 is old, Spirit Yoda should also be old.  And I'll have to compare the figures to be sure, but didn't the series 5 version also have smoother clothing, which would have make the white highlighting more possible?
