Well.. I just made my 2nd Kubrick purcahse when I was at CIV.   My first was the TIE Pilot cause he fits perfectly in my LEGO TIE Interceptor.   I saw the Max Rebo set way atop the shelf of one of the vendors at CIV and started to drool.   If I have a collecting focus, it's the OT aliens- more specifically, the musicians.   So I had to drop the money and pick them up.  Now to just find a set of the Modal Nodes (6 will do)

A carded 400%?  :P Sorry, it's a bad pic for size comparison. Regardless, that's a rediculous price for either the 100% (75-90) or 400% (90-125). It's a shame how people try to capitalize just because it's a SW convention...

Oh...that is a 400%! I really thought it was 100%, but looking back at the pic, of course it's 400%, as it's surrounded by all the others.

In case you're not referring to the Blackhole, that's what I paid at CIV for the Max Rebo set.... I'm such a fool!

Nah you're not a fool, they've really gone up in price and is the most desirable of the SW box sets. I'm the fool because I sold mine last year for $160 shipped, lol...

Yeah, I just looked at the Black Stormie, didn't realize it was a 400% Madcow. The small carded one in a booth for 200$ was what I'd seen.

Army Building days are over for me.
Although I'm not a completest anymore I can't bring myself to sell the Indy, its one of the best Kubes ever.

Picked up my Boba Fett last night through HW guy for TH trades. Was informed this morning I am getting Zuckuss and Dengar as well (he won them off an asian ebay seller for 20$ each and free shipping).

Now I only need 4-lom from wave 1 and Greedo to complete my original trilogy 'bad guys' Kuby collection ;D

These HW Treasure hunt trades are really working in my favor...the unlikeliest of allies-a scalper
{greed- a powerful ally}

I've probably acquired 1/3 of my Kubes via scalper trades :D

Agreed! Even if I were to sell the all the series, he would stay...
