I usually pass on all carded exclusives but this is a MUST for me... sigh... Hopefully it's not too hard to get.

Hey, long time no see! I thought you might be down for this one when I saw it lol

Holy moly! How are you!!! Hehehe, yeah I've been away for a while with a ton of life changes. Well that and the lack of OT Kubricks.  ;D

Same here. I love the kubs, but OT ones are what I really love heheh. Can`t wait for those
to come around.

Tokyo Hunter had a post of this the other day. You can order with him until the 25th of July, but I don't know what his fee will be.

Can you clarify if this is a raffle or not?  My contact in Japan had indicated that this was a raffle procedure like many previous items where the supply is quite limited.  Limit of one per household as well, I believe.  No price information on my end either, but I'd guess it'll be in that $15-25 range from Medicom themselves and then skyrocket in auctions before settling out.

The order form at bearbrick indeed says it's limited to 1 per address/family. Don't know about the raffle thingy.

Reading comprehension...   ::)

So a carded Chewy limited to 1000 pieces, looks like 500 at the show & 500 online I think.

Limited to 1000.  500 at the show, 500 on-line.  Like always, if more than 500 people order via the website, it is a raffle to decide who gets them (limit 1 per address).

Also...

1,575 yen is approx $16.55 US. 60mm = 2.36".

1575 Yen = $16.50 USD plus shipping if you are lucky enough to get one from Medicom.

Yeah, I got the 500 online thing, what wasn't abundantly clear was raffle or no.  I was informed raffle when my bud ordered, so I was wondering if there was clarification that this had been stated somewhere else as an absolute occurrence.  He has yet to miss out on a raffle, so I can't say whether they actually ever get the maximum number of orders or not.  It is somewhat difficult to tell amongst all the excitement we generate at this site with our foolishly rabid toy habit.  So I asked, shoot me :P

Yes, I missed Dale's original price post, sorry.  But what no one seems to ever factor in is the shipping cost within Japan above that 1575 Yen price, so my ballpark price of $15-25 is bang on.  Now go crap on SaaiBork for asking and causing me to answer.  ;)

The top picture looks more like the Earlybird Chewie but the bottom picture his satchel and belt are a different colour.

I paid 65.00 for it which included shipping to the US from him. I should get it in 6-10 days.
