I'm sure glad I got my chase figures in a complete set off ebay...  that price for the AT-ST driver is insane...  :o

What did that cost you?  I'm feeling more lucky every day about drawing the Hoth Rebel in this wave.  I would love to get the AT-ST Driver, but until it gets back down to Rebel Trooper prices, it will be a hole in my collection.  $450 is just insane.

It was $600. shipped & included the cardboard display. 1st time I went this route, thought I would give it a try. Will be doing it again with the next series depending on the price.

It's depressing to say that is a good deal.

I have them all except the AT-ST driver. And with the price of that being sky high it has moved me from completist and buying a box of 12 to probably just buying a set of 6 off ebay for future releases now.

Yeah, me too.  I got the full set as soon as the series was released, from a private contact in HongKong, not ebay.  No cardboard display, just one of each of the figures, including chases.  I paid $380 total, including shipping.  This was well before the prices for these chases skyrocketed.  I was quite happy, but my seller was probably a little regretful.  ;D

Assuming you got the cardboard display and you're using it, how have you got your kubs displayed on it? Also do you display any hoth related none dx kubs on it? Pictures would be nice :)

I had no problem with the dx1 set as it's smaller and jabba takes up a lot of space and I have lots of none dx kubs for it but the hoth one seems a bit sparse and they seem to be just standing there more so than the dx1 kubs seem to be lol

Thanks for the picture  ;D

I like your use of accessories!

I included the AT-AT driver in my display but I may have to add vader and some more snowtroopers.

Anyone else get annoyed when they see ebay auctions from the seller "corndogcollectibles?"  I know anyone can charge whatever they want and more power to them, but to have to scroll past 100 listings of $400 Jar Jar Binks' and $200 K-3POs is getting old. Funny that when a Kubrick comes out that actually fetches $400, aka AT-ST driver, he charges $800.  ::)

That bothers me a little bit.  I know that guy, and I got him a bunch of his Star Wars kubs.  I thought they were for his collection, and now I see that he takes the good deals I give him and turns around and resells them, or tries to.  I think I'm going to think twice the next time he asks me to find stuff for him...

Man, that's really a ****** thing to do on his part.  Sorry to hear that he's been taking advantage of your good nature.  Hopefully no one ends up buying anything from him at those prices...

If you do an advanced search you can select which ebay sellers you don't want to include. I haven't been subjected to corndogcollectables greed and stupidity for quite a while now. I also include key words relating to Stanley Kubrick films for it to ignore and then save the search. I do an unfiltered search once a week or so but the search setting I have don't seem to miss out anything important.

That's awesome, thanks! Didn't realize it was possible to hide specific sellers. I will promptly block old corndog, though I'll miss seeing his rare and exotic treasures. Many don't realize that if you take Dodo Bodonawieedo out of the package and photograph him on a white background, his value will eclipse that of the entire sealed set.  ;D

Sir Real--That sucks indeed, especially if he made it seem like it was for his own collection. Hopefully next time you leave him out in the cold.
