shouldn't you have heard something from Robby.jp by now? 

Like Brent already said, nothing from Robby yet.

One thing I've learned while collecting these little buggers is that there is no rhyme or reason to the announcements and when they go up for sale.  Robby used to be a lot faster, but they did have some turn-over in the webstaff a while back.  Things seem to run slower now than they used to run. :-\



And on that note... 

I've had a lot of stuff going on this month so I was hoping to put this off until after Toy Fair, but since I've recieved so many e-mails/PMs, I'll just start it now: Jeff's Kubrick Star Wars Series 9 Mega-Order!


- First off, there are no guarantees.  Until I put in the order with Robby (and even after the order goes in), there is always a small chance that we won't get enough to cover everyone's wants.  So far though (Series 4-7), we've always been able to help everyone who has asked for help.


- All I will take "pre-orders" for right now is
   1) Master Cases (4 boxes of 12, 100% chance of at least 1 chase figure)
   2) Boxes of 12 (approx. 50% chance of at least 1 chase figure)
   3) Basic Set of 6 (1 of each of the commons)

Since we don't know ratios yet, it's hard to guarantee any specific individual figure requests yet...

 
- Since they are not officially up for pre-order at Robby yet, I have no firm prices.  The final price will depend on a number of things - wholesale price, shipping from Japan, currency exchange rate, bank fees, etc.  If the prices hold similar to the past series, you are looking at...
   1) Master Case  ~$325-$350       
   2) Box of 12  ~$85-$90       
   3) Set of 6  ~$50-$55


If I haven't scared you off yet and you are still interested in joining the mega-order, please post in this thread or just drop me a PM.  :)

Just an FYI that I had to change the potential price ranges listed above.  I was going a little fast this AM and I grabbed the wrong numbers...  :-[

Originally, I had listed the price range that we saw for Series 6/7:
   1) Master Case  ~$305-$325       
   2) Box of 12  ~$80-$85       
   3) Set of 6  ~$45-$50

But, based on the info from the Series 8 pre-order price at Robby, the cost will most likely be 8-10% higher than Series 6/7 were.  The new price ranges listed below reflect the increase...   :-\

The approximate price range for Series 8/9:
   1) Master Case  ~$325-$350       
   2) Box of 12  ~$85-$90       
   3) Set of 6  ~$50-$55

There are a number of factors that play into this increase (7.5% higher wholesale price, higher shipping rates, weaker USD vs. JPY).

Once again, these are just ranges.  I won't know the exact cost until they ship.  Sorry for any disappointment, just trying to give everyone a realistic expectation on the cost. Better to know now than to be surprised with it later when they ship...   :(

Hi everybody (first post :) )

As a beginning Kubrick collector, it is very interesting if i could join in the Mega Order.
But i have a question that Jeff (or somebody else) might help me with.
I live in the Netherlands, and i would like to know what the extra costs are for getting the order (Case) over here.

cheers, Hans
