no my tracking number isn't working either... hope this isn't some dodgy thing!

I got an undeliverable card stating my package is at the post office, so I'll see how this looks tomorrow...

Perhaps I should have written that they dropped off a card notifying me that I had a package waiting at the post office.  IT was undeliverable because you have to sign for it.  And of course, the post is closed today.   :P

I got mine from the post today as well and it looks great.  Tight joints and no noticable paint issues.  I'm guessing these were over produced rather than errors?  Weird.

I knocked S2 Indiana Jones Chase off the list this week thanks to forum member Dan (AKA the Kubie-King).  Now to find somewhere to display him... :-\

Ended up picking up the last figure I needed to close-out the Marvel series.  Got the Doppleganger Spiderman Series 3 chase figure tonight.  Feels good to finally be done with one Kubrick series I collect ::)

Did anyone on the boards pick up the vinyl Jawa that was just on the bay?  $100 shipped to the US was a great deal...

I ended up picking up four of the Batman movie Kubricks off of a Best Offer.  Only have two left to get...

Was that a BIN offer?  I didn't see it available.   ???  That is a steal.

Yep, it was from GB.  The BIN and shipping came to about $100 shipped.  Don't think I'll see another one for that price any time soon...

I found it on completed auctions, but it does not look like it was BIN.  Did you see it active as a BIN auction?  Stang, that would have been a nice grab.

Yeah, it was an auction listing that also had a BIN.  The BIN price was only a few dollars more than the openning auction bid, so it didn't surprise me that someone bought it.  Oh well, someone ended up with a great deal.

I got my Zam Wessell in the mail today and she looks minty sweet.  I wish I didn't have to shell out so much money for them, but man the chase Kube characters are all really really nice.

Made an impulse buy today and picked up the 2009 Parco silver Vader.  Still have six carded figures left to get, but this was a unique one I've been wanting to pick up since it came out.  Hopefully it will arrive in minty shape...  I have my doubts.

Patience paid off - Basic set of Boba Fett collection for just over $14 each shipped.

Might try to track down the common and rocket firing chases, not really interested in the J slot (or is it L?) chase.
