Is THIS a fair price for the HK version of Cantina Band Member?  I have the Japan version, but have been saving a spot for the HK one.


Thanks!

Yes, that is a good price & shipping to you is not bad. Way better than shipping to Canada... $21.00.  ::)

I picked up my last one to make a set of band members at C4 for $15.

Okay, I went ahead and bought this and got free shipping because I ordered something else from the seller.  Yay!  It arrived yesterday and looks cool next to my Japan version.  In addition tot he 2 flue-like pieces, it comes with some kind of large bent horn devise and a bent wire frame that looks like it should plug into the bigger gray horn thing.  There's even a hole for it on the horn thing, but mine doesn't seem to fit and I can't see how it would fit onto the figure anyway.  I'm not seeing the wire frame thing pictured in the checklist either.  Anyone got an inside scoop on this or know what the heck I'm talking about?

One end of it is "keyed" to fit in the hole only one way and then wraps around his neck.

Nice - thanks for the reference pics Jay!  I didn't make the connection that Yak had photo archives of Kubies too!

Hey Everybody!

I'm a long time Kubrick collector who bought a couple of Star Wars series when they were first released.  I've always wanted to collect the rest of the Star Wars Kubricks that I missed but never could afford it.  Well I've went on a little bit of a buying spree lately and am nearing completion of the Original trilogy, sans most chases which I feel are too expensive for the character you get in most cases.  Still there are some chases that I want really bad.  I was wondering if anyone would tell me a good price a few items can be had for.

Grand Moff Tarkin - I want this Kubrick so bad!!!
Logray
Early Bird Set

Thanks in advance!!!
- Jake

Moff Tarkin usually sells for 175.00-200.00
Logray  175.00-220.00
Early Bird set- 100.00-135.00

Good luck finding them cheaper. If you do and can afford it, buy them. I still need all 3 of those but thr prices are just too high for me.

I got my Tarkin for $94 (shipped) off of eBay.  Its probably been at least a year since then though.  I haven't watched the prices recently.

I have Tarkin listed from $122.-$162., Logary $157.-$198. & the EB $120-$140. but the list has not been updated in a few months so yeah, those numbers that bigj22 are roughly in the ballpark.

My name is chap.

I have been lurking this forum for awhile.  Decided to finally introduce myself.  I recently got into Kubricks.  My first purchase was a box of series 10 with no chases, but I really enjoy them they look awesome.

Today my Bobba box came from NCS and I got a L-Rockett CHASE! Soooo pumped.  ALSO I bought 2 boxes from my other friend who runs no idea records and I have a series 6 and 7 box to go open right now! **edit, not chases in my series 6 or 7 box, but my series 7 had 2 gamorrean guard boxes, no leia and one felt lighter than the other, so I'm thinking yak face???  Nope, leia was just in a gamorrean box. 

Oh well!
