Amazingly they haven't turfed me out just yet.  But I do occasionally buy other things from them and they might feel guilty because they royally screwed up a couple of my orders. 

Jesse, I just don't want to break up my set, otherwise I'd send you the Vader but that'll leave me with five lonely deformed figures with no real homes.  I'm sure I could move Fett and the stormtrooper, but after that it gets iffy. 

My buddy is looking into the deformed shadow trooper for me.  He's telling me it'll run about $10 after all is said and done with the magazine.  Not sure if he's pocketing a couple of bucks or not, but it doesn't bug me that much.  He's saved me so much on Kubricks it's easily worth it.

I'd take the Yoda if you start splitting the case.

Case Break down for my box of 12:

Stormie x2
Vader x2
Fett x2
R2-D2 x2
C3-PO x2
Yoda x 1
R2-Q5 x1

I promised the Yoda to my neice's husband to be, so I'm after that one for myself now and the K-3po if I can find it!

Morg,
If you still have a set of 6 I'll take it.
Jesse, I'll sell you the Vader if this happens.

You know what?  I checked and it looks like they pop out the Yoda in each box to put in the chase figure.  So I don't have an extra Yoda or a set of six at all.  What I have is the following:

Vader
Fett
Stormtrooper
R2-D2
C-3PO

One of each of those.  $5 for each.  Shipping extra or we could trade maybe instead. I'd prefer to offload them all to one happy home.

So Jesse, since Doc mentioned it first, if he can help you with a Vader, go that way.  If my not having a set for him puts a damper on it, I have a spare, lonely Vader and you have first dibs.

I'll pass since it does not have the Yoda I'm after.
I may just get another box of 12 and take my chances on the chase.
I'll let you guys know what extras I end up with if I do this.

Hey Doc, if you decide to get another box let me know and I might order one too (if you can get two boxes)

You might be better off ordering them yourself, save on shipping.
Someone over at Yodas News posted the link(below)
As far as the chase, I hope I get the K-3po this time around, if I get the R2-Q5 I'll see if anyone here wants to make the swap.
Another line to get hooked on!
From Kubricks to this!

While you are chasing R2Q5, watch for the 3rd chase too - Shadow Stormie:



Got my shadow stormie wrapped up, it's in the mail on the way here now.  Just need to find the R2-Q5. 

Anyone know if they've announced series 2 at all?  Don't know if I'm going after that round or not.  I'm expecting much more along the lines of a PT set in series 2 so I'd probably pass on that.

Nothing on a Series 2, but I hope they keep making them.
I may have the R2-Q5 if my new box does not have the K-3po in it.

Got K-3po in my other box which showed up today!(sorry Morg no R2-Q5)
Have the whole series now.
Also got the Shadow Stormie from my friend in Japan, the box it comes in is big!
I'll have to get SB to take some pics for me.
I hope they keep making these.

Ha!
I just posted the link over at Yodas news, was just looking to find a R2-Q5 for Morg, no luck so far on ebay or retailers.
Might be worth a shot to ask Freebento though, he may have ordered more.
He has some on ebay as well, but more expensive.
Here is a link to all he has:

Can some one tell me a good place to get a few of these at a reasonable price? I just saw these for the first time today and would love to get the Vader and Stormtrooper. Does anyone here have these to for sale?
