According to the email that I got from Medicom this AM, this set is in ADDITION to the Fett Collection Series that is coming later this year.

It is a Parco Show item, just like the carded S1 and carded S2 sets they had at the last couple of Parco shows.  Should be available to order at the show and then some sold through the Medicom site after the show.

Oh great, so we double up on the Kuby's again. A loose set & a carded set, this set may go for $160. plus on the bay. Dang, Medicom is killing us!  :-\

Those look nice, but I sure am glad I don't worry about collecting Carded Kubricks.

I will probably just stick with the non carded ones I am getting. I tried to venture into the carded series 1 only to receive badly damaged ones in the mail. So after that i decided that if I have them and they are they same I'm skipping the carded ones.

Outkast don't even get me started on getting these 6 packs shipped. Just tried getting series 2 and the damage they get from the mail makes it all but impossible to get a mint set!

The carded versions do look nice, especially that Kenner vintage figure.  However, I'll be happy if my regular set comes in and I won't be worrying about the carded set.

Actually, the only carded figure I'd probably ever chase would be an AT-AT Driver.  So, of course, they'll probably do that sometime soon and it'll be wicked expensive.   ;)

Those are great.
Will have to be happy with loose ones though.

If anybody wants the full set of the first or second release, I'll be selling mine.  I've decided I don't need the carded ones.

Now we know whats been sold at the Parco Medicom Toy show, what sort of Star Wars exclusive will be given out to those lucky b******s  (or so called V.I.P's) that are invited to the show?

My bet would be something SW carded related. Maybe some old school or even pre SW gear? As always the case when they hit the bay will cost $$$

Let the speculation begin!

I noticed that one seller is pre ordering on the bay, $179.99 plus shipping. He already sold one.
