Good luck with that.  They're few and far between on ebay and those that do come up are at least $150.

I still want to see Indy's parts swapped with Kermit's to make a Kubrick Adventure Kermit.


That would be pretty cool.

They can be found on eBay, here in our classified forums, or from various overseas e-tailers.

They are not normally available from regular retail outlets in the USA.

I figured I should tell this to everyone here in the advice thread I started...

Well, despite promising myself I wouldn't buy any of these things...I bought one of these things! Just the basic Kubrick ANH Han Solo. And this is one cool little guy! Now I feel the urge to buy him some friends!  ;D

At least this is all happening around my birthday... ;)

A good one to start with- If I remember right, padawan still had an early bird set for sale in the classifieds here- That's where I got my indy a week or two ago so I can vouch for him.

The best place to look for individual figures is to head to eBay.  There are a few places that sell individual figures, but most are sold out since it's been so long since we've had new figures.

Thanks. I do check there on occasion. The few I'm looking for tend to be way more than I want to spend.

I think Kubricks always end up being more than any of us want to spend!

Greetings!

I'm not really a newbie to Kubricks, but I am a newbie to board. After being a long-time lurker, I figured it was a good idea to actually participate!

I guess I'm more of a medium-core Kubrick collector, having all of the standard series figures (except for part of S1 and all of S4), but I would like to get into some of the more limited (albeit pricier) figures. I have a smattering of other Kubrick figures from Lupin, Trigun and Reservoir Dogs, and I also collect some Habro 3 3/4" and Sideshow 12". Space and money have definitely become factors!

Anyway, wanted to say hi. I'm posting this exact post on Kubrick Nation too - also a long-time lurker locale.

Hi Wampachow, welcome!

There are some pretty hardcore kubrick-heads around here, as I'm sure you noticed.

Well, pending the successful completion of a purchase from JesseVader08, I'll join the ranks of the rest of you kubrick-a-holics.  I purchased the Luke X-Wing Pilot, Luke Jedi Knight, and possibly the Scout Trooper.  Let the madness begin...

Hey guys, for someone who's never looked into these before, what was the original price for the 400% Han and Luke in Stormtrooper Disguise figures?  I'm interested in getting these and want to know what the baseline was before I start looking.  Thanks.

At the start, you could pre-order them for around $62 (US), but that did not include shipping...

HLJ has the 400% Luke and Han Stormtroopers listed for pre-order!  :o   :o

Early bird special for both: 7,238 yen. Approx $62.18 US each.

I think with the shipping to the USA, the end price was closer to $80-90 each depending on how you had them shipped here.
