I wonder if they'll ever do a Crimson Empire set of Kubricks? They did the Shadow Stormtrooper, so maybe EU will be next.


I can hope can't I?

I like the Sandtrooper and Biker Scout the best, but I have yet to find a Kubie I don't like.  :-*

For SW: Indy, Chewie and 400% Fett

As for Kubs in general, hands down it is the Team America box set...

Indy was the first chase figure I pulled and I still remember how excited I was to find him... it was all downhioll from there.   :P

I know its hard...but if you had to pick just one, what would it be?

I'll go with The Cartoon Boba,
He looks even better when you open him and throw him into a Display case.

Good stuff.

And now we have a new one and a whole Series...hard to pick.

Nothing has changed for me.  Indy still wins, no doubt.  Just a wickedly cool figure, a total surprise and really well done with the whip, idol, hat. 

The J-slot and L-slot Fetts are really nice touches too; I love Medicom's attention to vintage stuff.  But Indy still wins.

For Star Wars: it's hard to beat Dagobah Luke with Yoda in backpack.  

Non-Star Wars: Special Forces Land Warrior, with lots of ties for a close second: Michael Keaton movie Batman, Indy (the more recent darker brown one for me wins), Levis Miner, Big Comic Original baseball player, Captain America, Creature from the Black Lagoon, Tiger Mask purple tiger, and Casshern (red).

Luke with Yoda is an amazing Brick...I gave that one away to my niece's future husband because he is a huge Yoda fan.
I love that Creature as well.
The Monster Cereal Kubes are also great.

My favorite Star Wars Kubbie would probably have to be Bespin Luke (I wish I had that Degobah version :( ).  Though I love mini Vader and 3PO, too.

But favorite Kubbie period?
Chest Burster Chase from Alien Series 1
This :D Probably followed by my Batman Begins Scarecrow.  If the damn Ghostbusters would ever come out, this list would change, though.

After getting the Fett series, I have to go with the Kenner Boba Fett as my all time favorite to date.  I loved the kenner Fett when I Was a kid and the Kube version is just an insanely cool homage to that figure.

I can't wait for my set.
I love Fett and I love Kubricks.
The Holiday one looks great, that might top my list...

My favourite is 400% Boba Fett Prototype. I love the detailed weathering on it. It cost me an arm and a leg but it is the centerpiece in my collection.

For 100% SW Kubricks my favourite would be the Scout Trooper with Bike. Runners up would be Dagobah Luke, Veers and Shadow Trooper (glossy!).

For non-SW it is Melusine (camo version) from Maschinen Krieger. This one is what started it all for me.

I'm not familiar with all the lines of Kubricks but if I picked my favorite Star Wars 'Brick it would prbably be either Yak Face or Shaak Ti, I just like those two a lot.  I'm also a fan of the AT-AT Driver and the new Vintage Kenner Fett.  But Yak and Shaak Ti, it's a coin flip.

Overall favorite Kubrick would be either the chase version of Indiana Jones or VINCENT from the Black Hole line.  I think Indy just edges out VINCENT.  Old BOB from the BH line comes in a close third.  Still have to thank CB for the chance at all three of those figures.
