Slave1 has 3 pics of the carded Han Carbonite & a bit of a close up of the coin from the Medicom Toy Exhibition, very nice.

This elusive carded figure has more than meets the eye, it appears that there is a Han kuby behind the carb block.  :o

This is a side view of the block posted on the Slave1 forum, you can just see the kub inside.



You can really see Han in this image I enlarged a bit from a Yahoo Japan auction.





Hibernation Sickness Han comes with this puppy by the looks of it.  8)

It's also not quite true that they are guest only toys. When I went to see the show yesterday the guy behind me pulled a lucky ticket and scored the carded kub!

I got given one of these by a friend,  it really is the finest carded kubrick so far.  Only one small problem is that the coin is not a coin, it's just printed silver on the card.

So you could also have drawn a ticket to get this besides it being a giveaway for guests, any idea on how many were made? Maybe the usual 150-200?

That's sweetttttt but........... Gonna cost you an arm and a leg, well maybe 2 legs.  >:(

No different from any of the other give-away Kubys - Sacul, Vader, Sandtrooper.  All start around $300 and then drift down to around $200-$250 or so with time.

Man, I'm going to need to place a HUGE order with Oscar soon...  :P

It is a cool Brick.
I'll have to rank it with Jorg though, to rich for my blood.
If only I could set my eyes on one thing, but I have too many other interests to justify spending $$ on stuff like this.

If that coin was real I'd rip it open!
