Yup, that's about the only one pressing for me too.  The Han is nice, but without being a real coin and not being significantly different enough I won't pick it up either. (The carbonite is different enough, but not $300 different enough for an opener)

So this is the one I have my eye on, will pick up and will open.

So nothing still on this one?  This is the only Kubrick that has a pressing interest for me at the moment (until they slide an OT chase in series 8 anyway) so I'm kind of wondering.  Wonderfest exclusive?  Where else could they release this, aside from a collectors club piece?

I just hope its one of the easier carded figures to get, around the 80-100.00 dollar mark and not the 300.00 ones.

I believe that is the case, but it has not been confirmed.

eBay will be your only option most likely.  99% of the time, the Medicom Collector Club exclusives are never offered anywhere else.  :(

The best example of this is the 2007 Box Set from earlier in the year.  A lot of places (like BBTS) took pre-orders, but the Collector Club (or someone who bought from the Collector Club) was the only place to get them.

Any opportunity for a group purchase among the MN collectors?  I might be in for one or two of these depending on price.   ;)

Nope.  Generally the collectors club items are restricted to Japanese households, one per household.  No collectors club members outside Japan (and possibly Hong Kong) is there standard policy as I understand it.

Any of you more experienced kubie guys have a guess as to what these will go for on Ebay?  I'd really like to get one, but don't want to get my hopes up if the cost is going to be astronomical.   :-\
