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.   :-\

Since it's a 2007 piece edition, the range should be anywhere from $60 to $120.  It definitely should be cheaper than the rarer Parco Show carded figures since those are usually only 150-500 piece edition sizes.

It's a repaint EU trooper, so it could bottom out around $60 like the Shadow Stormtrooper and Holo Leia figures did.  But, the fact that it has "Kenner Vintage" appeal probably means that it will hover closer to the $100 mark like the Droids carded R2 and Fett figures have done.

I can see this going for around the $100 mark too, if this sucker is carded like the vintage UZAY bootleg then maybe a tad more.

Wow.  :o  That's way out of my price range for one fig.   :-\

$100 will be a good deal, I'd suggest.  Be like the Blue Snaggletooth in that it will draw in Kuby chase fans plus a huge draw as a vintage nod.  So priced like the Droids R2, but higher.

One thing that hasn't been pointed out yet is that these are on a lottery system for the members of the collector's club.  There is no guarantee even for a member, because the numbers are limited.  So you enter the raffle as a member of the club and still have to have some luck to win.  Limited numbers and all that.  I believe some of the collector's club exclusives are run on a 'per order' basis where there is a window for ordering and when it closes the edition size made is however many orders were received for a piece.  I think the latest box set was like that, but am not certain.  Obviously not the case with 2007 pieces only.

Can someone help me with the Japanese website where you actually can join the collectors club?  I still pretty new to Kubes and I can't find it.  I'm hoping to get my neighbors brother (still lives in Japan) to join.

to the best of my knowledge there is no collectors club as such.  If its the same as in the past you just pay, or, in the case of a lottery, give your address, and details. later they email you.

actionhq.com has the Star Wars Kubrick Snowtrooper (Blue Stars Ver.) up for preorder for $49.95 US plus shipping. I **** you not!

Item status:
This is a PREORDER item and is expected to be in stock on:
Friday 30 May, 2008. Subject to change.

You can pay via CC or Paypal but it looks like they charge you right away but if they crap out & don't get it, then they refund.

I have never ordered from them before but I took the chance.  :-X

I took a chance on this one but not the Maul.  I can't see these selling for $50 on the bay.

I took a chance on both. Hope it works out better than the 2007 box set I tried to get off toywiz

Well it looks like they adjusted their prices quickly, $99 for the snowtrooper and $169 for the maul.  :P

Holy ****!  It's a good thing I ordered them when I did, because there's no way I would have ordered them at those prices.  I just checked my order status and it's still showing the original prices; hopefully they won't adjust them up to the new prices...
