Card those Legos!
« on: February 16, 2007, 02:23 AM »
Hello,

So as most of you know I am the guy who cards all those Star Wars Kubricks.  It's fun, I  must admit, and I just think they look better on a card (maybe I'm a little nostalgiac but aren't we all).  Anyway, I'm thinking of breaking into the Lego line.  Can anyone shed some light on whether or not people would be interested in carded Lego figures?  I think they'd look pretty cool but damn they're expensive!  I want to start with the basics- Vader, Chewy, etc.  Take a look at my Kubs and let me know what you think.  Until then...

Tony

I think I have seen carded Lego's on Ebay from time to time...  I'm not sure what kind of interest there is I guess, but it's definitely a different idea.  Something that could be cool as new figures come out routinely in that line.

  Hi ! I think your carded Kubs are truely amazing. If I had the money I would buy everyone. I collect lots of Legos and it's a cool idea...but I think the price would be a huge problem. Not that I think you are over-priced, just that another expense for many collectors would be a problem. One idea you might consider for the Legos (or even the Kubs) is a multi-pac. 2-4 figures in one blister based on a theme....Early-bird, Villians, Heroes. Not exactly a new idea but would maybe make it more affordable. If I love Droids then I could just buy your Droids multi-pac ect. Keep up the good work, you really have talent!

Great ideas!  Thanks!  Maybe 2-packs.  C-3PO and R2, Han and Chewy, Luke and Leia, etc.  I'm gonna mull this over.
