Well, if you change your mind again or want to make a few bucks, I'd be interested in some of what you picked up.  Nice score!

By the way, how long does it take to get registered at KN?  I submitted a request several days ago and STILL have not had my registration go through.  I might be interested in the Lost figures that guy has up for sale if anyone can PM him on my behalf. 

In related news, I broke down during the drought and bought 3 Lost Kubes.  I found an auction for Jack, Sayid, and Kate for $20 shipped, so I cracked.   ::)  Got them today though and they are amazing.  I didn't realize they came with cool little accessories (Gun, Walkie Talkie, and Hand-cuffs respectively).

Another Blue Snag!  Did you get him off the Bay?

I did and for a price I was happy with although slightly more than I would like to have paid.

Just picked up the carded Parco Sandtrooper this afternoon.  I think I got a steal too at $77 shipped.  I'm just hoping it comes in as good a shape as it looks on-line...

BTW, for anyone still looking for the Medicom Collector's Club 5-pack that has the Snowtrooper, Droids 3PO, etc., the same seller I bought this figure off of has a set with a BIN of $75.  Also seems like a steal for those figures...

SCORE!  I picked up a few full sets on Ebay recently and they arrived in the mail yesterday.  I spent a little over $400, but landed the full set of 9 from waves 3 and 5.  I have most of these, but the group buy nets me:
- VC Jawa,
- Blue Snaggletooth,
- Ponda Baba.

I also have two full basic sets & common chases to recoup some of my money along with a really nice looking Logray.  Only about 9 more Kubes to go (excluding deluxe of course  :-\).

Congratulations Justin!  I was watching that Series 3 auction and had the same intention as you (buy the set for the one figure I needed).  Glad I didn't get into a bidding war with you, and the price you paid for that Series with the 3 chases was really good.  Good luck with the additional sales...

Picked up the Series 10 Tion Medon chase figure from someone over at KN.  Just down to the Series 3 Jawa (DLX1 chases aside).

Actually, I wasn't going to be around, so I put in $205 about 4 hours beforehand.  I was shocked to get back later that night and find that I won it!  Very glad you decided not to bid as well.   ;)

Nice score on the Tion - that is one I still need as well.

Picked up my first 400% Boba Fett over the weekend (ROTJ gauntlets).  Paid a lot less than I thought I was going to ever pay for one of these figures.  Two more to go...

Picked up x5 Hasbro Scouts and x1 Brick Scout at our MN meeting last night.....Really diggin the Kubrick version over Hasbros for some reason.  Lando and Spirt Obi didn't really do anything for me, but this?  Very neat.  Sure hope I don't get sucked into these things.   :-\

I've got lots of extras Mike - get 'em before they're gone!

Speaking of which, anyone need a Logray?  I have a spare Logray (legit), along with complete 7pc sets of Series 3 (includes Carbonite Han Chase) and Series 5 (includes Han Endor Chase).  Any interested parties can shoot me a PM, otherwise I'll start posting offers elsewhere or resort to the Bay.

Got my Star Wars Deluxe Wave 1 Box this week.  Definitely liking Bib and Amanaman, but wish that they had blasters or staffs included.   :-\  The rest of the figures are cool, but not overly exciting if you already have alternate versions.  I was happy to see that Chewie is not a straight repaint of prior releases.  Jabba is very cool and a definite must have.



Speaking of must haves, I completed my LOST Kubrick collection recently.  If you are a fan of LOST & Kubricks, you need these.  I was on the fence about them for a long time, but they are really amazing likenesses of the figures and extremely well done.  Take a lookskie:



Desmond and Ben are the rare chases - I nabbed Des and 4 others for $120 on KN, picked up the other three via Ebay for about $20.  I'm okay excluding Ben from the rest of the castaways, though I might grab him someday if I can find him on the cheap.

I ended up buying the chase Bib and Boba Fett for DX series 1. I paid a little more than I wanted to but got them out of the way. I would like to get the diorama someday but not willing to pay more than $40. I also ordered some extra older Kubricks to put up in my office. I got a Pilot Luke, Ackbar, TIE pilot, and Iceman Kubricks on the way.
