Kubricks: Wishes and Wet Dreams
« on: January 14, 2007, 04:34 PM »
After arranging (i.e. playing) with some of my loose figures today, I thought of a couple more Kubys that could be created for a future ANH themed boxed set. While I don't want Kubricks to fall into the Hasbro trap of repaints, it is way to get some of the non-essential background characters with minimal new tooling.

BoShek: Basically a repaint of the Bossk body/jumpsuit. They could sculpt a new head for the hair (a la Tarkin), and include a helmet and blaster. Obviously not a top of the heap character but not any less than Ten Numb or a generic hoth/endor soldier

Captain Antilles: Repaint of the RFT give him the strained (choking) expression like Hibernation Sickness Han and we're golden.

Imperial Officer (black uniform): a no brainer here, repaint the Veer Chase

Death Star Commander (gray uniform): Repaint the DS Trooper, add the cord to the helmet

CZ-3: Use K-3PO as a base, sculpt new torso piece and head

What would y'all like to see in a boxed set?

To me there are 4 distinct Box Sets I'd Like to see:

Jabba the Hutt w/ Bib Fortuna, Salacious B Crumb and Squidface
Hoth Luke w/ Tauntaun and Wampa and Hoth Leia
Droid Sale Set: Jawa, Uncle Owen, Aunt Beru, R1-G4 and Power Droid
Jabba Skiff Guards: Barada, Klaatu, Klaatu, Nikto and Weequay


I know there are several people around here that would like something along the lines of:

Endor Rebel Soldier
Hoth Rebel Soldier
AT-ST Driver
Generic X-Wing Pilot
Imperial Officer (Black Tunic)

I'd rather have that than repaint/retools I guess.  If that's the way you want to run, most of the stuff is possible with basic bodies and new hats/scarves/paints.  The bigger stuff like Jabba obviously need to be tooled.

The Skiff guards set would be sweet Scott, especially if they make a little mini skiff (maybe 1/2 the size of the POTF one) to put them on  ;D

You read my mind, well said. I would change Squidface to Amanaman though.

I'm still waiting on my Droids series box set.  It could be amazing:

Vlix
Tig Fromm
Sise Fromm
Admiral Screed
Uncle Gundy

Geez, you could pull two of them off if you wanted too.  I would like to see them do a box set and include one or two of the unproduced figures that you often see floating around as customs.

I like your box sets, but I hope they keep the soldiers back for regular series releases. It gives them something they can put multiples of in the box besides main characters, and makes army building only ridiculous, instead of ludicrous. I'm looking at the snowtrooper in a $60.00 box set (before shipping) and shaking my head... I had dreams of dozens of bricky snowtroopers manning my Hasbro AT-ATs- I hope this box set isn't his only release.

I agree in hoping they keep army builders in regular series release. Still holding out hope that a Snowtrooper of some sort will also be in a series. I missed the boat on the AT-AT driver, but I wasn`t army building at the time, now he goes for too much for me to really get more.
All these box set ideas are great though, hope Medi keeps putting kubs out for years to come!

That is a great set, now here's hoping there is a Jabba in the works to go with it.

With the Clone Wars series about to go into full swing, I wonder if the next Kuby series might be of that theme. Any one else interested in a CW line of 'bricks?

I'd like a few, not sure about a whole wave. I could go for a wave of Droids figures though  ;D
