I checked out Evilbay, but ran into two issues: #1 - I can't tell what's real and what's a fake. Seems like figures like a Han Stormtrooper might be pretty easy to fake. #2 - there really isn't much of the older stuff out there right now. Anyone know of a good source to buy some of the older chases? I'm not looking to get the really expensive ones, but items like the Hong Kong Cantina Band Member and Han in Stormtrooper disguise seem like possibilities.
1st of all, Welcome to the Kuby asylum.
Yeah, crackbricks they are known as. Once you get 1, you're hooked.
The only known Kuby fake that has ever cropped up thus far is the Logray
chase. Tho I have never seen one inhand, reports in the past had discrepancies from the original.
As for the Han Stormtrooper, none that I know of have been faked tho it is quite possible but to me not worth the effort for a low end chase.
One other that is not faked but can be pond off as a chase is the carded Fett from the Bounty Hunters - Individually carded set
. Remember, both are the same
. I have suspected that this has happened ripping the Fett off the card & selling him as a chase. I saw too many Bounty Hunter card sets being offered on the bay without the carded Fett.
Lastly, is there a thread dedicated to showing the best deal on future pre-orders? I'm totally confused on the best way to go about ordering S10 or the upcoming Fett set. I've pretty much either picked up a box or leftovers from someone else's cases in the past. Not looking to get a master case myself, but I might be game for picking up a box if anyone needs someone to split costs
Sorry, no individual thread dedicated for that. We mostly post what we know/find in the threads that are partained to Kuby sreis & what not in question. Best to have a read up on the threads of the newer stuff coming out. I'm sure you'll find the
information but I will have to check. Some places stopped taking orders as not to over order & have cancelled preorders due to not getting the allotment.
To find older chase figures at a site online, I would have to check into that. I don't know as I really don't look for them.
Edit: I just saw Jeff's response but no way in hell I am editing this. LOL!

And yes, the best thing you can do is post here or give Jeff, myself or anyother member a PM for advice.
