I had hoped it would go down as well, but all signs point to "no"

I will hold out a bit longer, and may just decide not to get this set  :-\

Yikes

Ah Kubricks.  Every time I start to get sucked in, something like this brings be back to reality.  Thanks for the cold shower Jay.

For those that are interested in the differences between the 3 Jangos (basic, 5 pack and 2 pack), here are Dale's 2 pics of the back of the basic and 5 pack versions.


and here is my shot of the 2 pack version


Aside from the obvious color difference in the suit, the 2 pack version doesn't have the holster straps on the back of the legs like the other two.

Do they all look pretty much the same on the front?  Obviously the helmetless one has a different head...

I picked up Padme, Jango, and TC loose from a friend for about $100.  Just couldn't bring myself to pay twice that for a repaint clone and a really goofy looking battledroid.  Pretty average set in my opinion - I like most of the figs, but there are how many different protocol droids and clones now?  The Padme is great and I have to have all things Fett, so definitely like those.

2008 was really really rare for some reason...it was the beginning of the super high priced Kubricks too :-\

since there is no word from Medicom on future releases, I decided to pull the trigger on this set I found on a Japanese website. I can live with 180 shipped.

I don't deal with that guy for two reasons.

1) He asks for paypal fees on top of his auction/shipping price.

2) He has more than one ebay account.

i dont think he can ask for additional money in an auction... i'm pretty sure you can report it and get his auctions shut down. at least you use to be able to do that.
