Sweet! I like the Cantina Band Member with all the accessories.  8)

So is this the way it's going to be now, re-releasing the series one by one carded?

Hmmm... I like them, but I hate the idea of re-buying Kubricks I already have in carded form.   :-\

Last year I caved because I've always liked the Bounty Hunters, but I don't know if I'm that jazzed for carded Greedo and friends.   :P

I think this is one I will be passing on for now. But who knows maybe during a dry Kubrick spell I might just end up buying it.

Are these exclusives to the show or just announced at the show and available through the collector's club?  If it's the latter, I might bite, especially if they come in a sleeve like the bounty hunters did and only because I have a better than average shot at getting them for cost+shipping.

That's exactly how I feel for the most part.

It's a bit boring just carding and re-releasing each series but it looks like this is what's going to happen.

The cantina band member does look excellent, and if that was the only one I would be much happier.

Rereleasing these sets is just anticlimactic. I love series 2, but I don't need to spend $100 plus on these, $80 on cases, and then try to make myself justify it all by finding a place to display carded versions of everything, knowing more are probably on the way.

A snowtrooper with cannon, antilles from the tantive (repaint rebel fleet trooper), C-3PO in parts, any of these would have re-used parts, but made a much more exciting release (IMO)

I think these might be a pass for me.  I've never gotten into Carded Kubricks and I'm not a Bearbrick guy.

I've got a quick "newbie" question: does anyone know of any reputable sites where these could either be pre-ordered or ordered once they come in?  For exclusives like these, is it best to just wait until they pop up on eBay?

Some sites have exlusives up for sale but rarely do they end up delivering. A lot of us are waiting to see if Action-HQ delivers on the Blue Stars Snowtrooper and the Darth Maul speeder set but no luck so far. What usually ends up happening is they keep pushing the date they are supposed to get the items back and back. Toywiz.com did the same thing to me with the Medicom Box set 07.

The question did not get answered because I don't think anyone knows the answer yet.  It is unknown (as far as I know) whether they will be sold only at the show or done similar to last year (where you could order at the show and/or eventually order them through the Medicom website).

The Openers info was the "sneak preview", I'm sure Medicom will formally announce the full details soon and then you should have an answer (though I'm hesitent to share with you two if you're just going to brag about having Japanese pals who get you stuff for cost  >:().

I really thought that the Bounty Hunters set was a cool set, especially since they included the ROTJ chase Fett in the series.  Since all they are doing with Series 2 is including all the instruments with the Cantina Band Member, there's really no impetus for me to get this set.  The least they could have done was include the white pauldron Sandtrooper instead of the basic orange version...

Thanks Jeff for the clarification - I hope my question didn't come off ruder than it was intended.  I was just trying to figure out if we knew if this was the big 2009 exclusive through the club or some other offering.  I can't believe I'm saying this, but I hope there's another exclusive coming.
