Yes, that would be right. You are the 1st bidder on this reserve auction with an opening of 99 cents. You only bid $5. & did not meet the sellers reserve price but your bid counts & will stay at 99 cents untill someone else bids. If they bid say $2, then they are out bid & you are still the high bidder at $2. reserve not met. If they bid $10., they you are outbid & they will be the high bidder at $5.01 me thinks, could be a few cents more depending on the auction increment. Only the seller knows what the reserve is & it won't sell unless the reserve is met, could be $100-$200. more or less.

Just a head's up for those interested in master cases.  I inquired about this at NCS:

Hello Justin, if you buy 4 boxes, you may request an unopened master case. You may mark this in the notes section when you submit the order. Thanks.

Regards,
 
NCSX, Inc

This should net you the display along with the 4 boxes.

The same seller has a listing for all 6 basic figures and Jabba for $89.90. Even with $25 shipping, that seems like a pretty good deal. But on both auctions he has this:

Quote
Will ship within 30 days of listing starts / item released.
Pre-order item will require immediately payment and is non-refundable.
Welcome to my auction!
This is GUARANTEED 100% AUTHENTIC MEDICOM PRODUCT , NOT BOOTLEG!
If you are Star Wars & Kubrick fans, DON'T MISS THIS BIG CHANCE !
This is released in JUNE 2010.
This price include every character printed!!

If you are worrying about my few feedbacks, please tell me.
I can wait your payment untill I send this item, if you are good buyer.

So i'm not sure what to think. Even if he is willing to wait on payment, I'm not sure I'm willing to put my fate in the hands of a newbie on ebay.

Okay, I just about bust a gut laughing at sentance #2 below:

Pre-order item will require immediately payment and is non-refundable.

Welcome to my auction!

He may not be trustworthy, but at least he's hilarious.

I imagine most of it is just because he's copying from other auction listings and the language barrier is getting in the way.

Newbie Question---What is a box of 12?
Does this mean you get 12 sets?

12 individually boxed Kubricks, all packed in 1 larger outer "display" box and there are 4 of these large display boxes to a case.

But of course you only get enough for 1 complete set of 6 even when you buy a box of 12, since they pack in multiples of some figures but only one of others.

As much as I love BBTS, $200 for a box of 12 kubricks is pretty outrageous.

This just seems insane...even for Medicom.
Extra Jabba parts floating around?
Can't wait to see what actually ends up in these boxes.

I've ordered my Box of 12 for $160+shipping.  I'm getting from the eTailer - DA Toys.  I've ordered many Kubricks from themsince Series 8 and I've always been pleased with the price and service.  Not sure if that price is a "repeat buyer" price or their standard pricing but I couldn't pass them up at that price!

This would not be bad to split with someone if you were going to get 2 Jabbas or a shot at a secret...but alas, such is Kubricks it seems.
