KUBRICK 5pcs SET



February 23rd online Japan only & a planned July release date. 6,279 yen so about $70.80 US.

Or about $350 on eBay.   ::)  ::)  ::)

I'll still probably buy one though...   :-[

Dang, I thought the Chewie was going to be a the version Holiday Special. And I thought that was R2-B1, they're calling him R2-B5. An error?

My favorite of the set is the Y-Wing Pilot.

Keep an eye out on the bay in July, the Feb 23rd deadline to order online has past.

Place your bets!

My guess... $300. to $325. US.  :'(

The Hoth version of Chewbacca in this set makes more sense now, with the recent announcement of the Deluxe Hoth series.  Can't wait to get both sets.

I just noticed there is no center leg for the R2-B1 pictured in this set, which is different from R2-D2, R2-Q5, R5-D4, and R5-J2, all of which have the center leg.  Think this one won't have that extra piece?  Or, is it retractable?  I'll have to check my droids.

Well, this set isn't out yet but is expected to be released this month, so, in the next two weeks.  I've got one on order, and I hope to hear about it soon.  

Anyone have any insight on the missing center leg of this R2 droid?  Seems like an expensive fix to customize if it is indeed missing, in that I'd have to cull that part from another Rx-droid, and none of the previous releases is too plentiful.  Plus, I hate to hack up perfectly good kubs.  Then again, all the others have it, so this one would look a bit odd without it.

I'm wondering if it wasn't a pre-production photo and they caught the problem subsequently?  I'm not overly concerned though, I'm just happy to get the set.

R2-B1 probably shares the same (new?) body with the Bartender R2 from the Deluxe Jabba's Palace series. That version doesn't have the middle leg either.
