I've opened all my figures EXCEPT the Rebo Band, Uzay Blue Trooper, and the Silver Vader.  I just really like how the Silver Vader looks carded and same for the Uzay.  It doesn't help that they are on minty mint cards.  The Rebo set I will open as soon as I can figure out an acrylic box to display them in.  I say keep your Vader carded in an oscar case unless you don't have space.

Hmm, you both make good points. Looks great alongside other Vaders loose, but it's also nice carded. Blue stars was the hardest one for me to open, but ultimately I wanted to put him in my little Hoth display, so I did. I think I'll leave Vader carded for now, just in case.

That's the best decision then.  If you're not absolutely sure you want to open it, you're correct to not.  Or, you could do what I did with the carded Indiana Jones kub, and get two; one to open, the other to leave on the card.  It's the only card I really liked.  (Plus, I got lucky with a low winning bid on a Japanese auction to get the second one.)

Recently picked up the Alien Space Jockey set- been wanting to pick it up for ages, really nice set... though would be awesome if it was 400% so would be kinda in scale with the 100% figures.

It's $100 off the going rate, the last time any popped up on Ebay and that's been a while.  They sure seem sparse. 

But I don't see myself owning this thing.  I guess I could tolerate $200 but no more than that.

yeah, its steep, but can't go higher.  the one for $us500 took a while to sell, but i wouldn't call it the going rate.  but, if there is anyone wanting to part with one, that's my going rate.  i need it to complete my display, thats why im willing, groan, to pay overs....

Just bought the Harry Potter Kubricks (plus chases) via eBay.  Definitely looking forward to getting these.

Harry Potter kubs are even better in person:


Iron man 2 (with a couple of easy headswap customs):


Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas set (still can't believe I found these):


Various others, new and old:

Very cool!

I received a free Vinyl Cape Jawa from a buddy that quit the Kubrick business. Cute lil bugger (the Jawa, not the buddy 8) )

Very cool 'gift' Jayson!  I too received a vinyl Jawa, but I had to pay for mine.  Other than the two ridiculously overpriced Deluxe Series 2 chases, I'm all caught up on Kubrick chase figures.  I also bought the first carded Vader figure and the carded Carbonite Han figures from a seller on ebay.  So I'm only a few carded figures away from the complete set as well.  This is all just in time for Deluxe Series 3 figures to be released and I'm sure another carded 'Series' offering from Medicom.  Considering we've been given the three Series 4 chase figures as re-releases recently, I wouldn't be surprised at all if we get Series 4 as carded figures this summer...
