Truthfully I just want the Jawa. I am sure people will be selling singles on ebay, like how I got my cantina band member.

Should have guessed they would card another series for the Expo again this year.  I still haven't tracked down the Fett set of 6 from last year, so I guess I better finally tick that one off before this one gets released this summer.  :P

I just want the AT-AT Driver.  Anyone have a ballpark amount for what singles from these shows have sold for in the past?

The Parco sets are sold as sets of six and usually run $150-180 after all is said and done.  Most of the eBay sellers who break up the sets to sell the figures indivdually go anywhere from $25-50 each depending on the popularity of the character.

Personally, I wish they would stop with the carded re-issues. I like show exclusives, but 6 at a crack of existing product is unimaginative. Compared to the uzay trooper, translucent han carbonite, spirit yoda, shadow repaints, etc these are just lazy.
I've bought the other 3 carded sets at one point or another, and sold them all again. I just can't see spending the extra $100 to get them each oscar cases, find a place to display them, store the big cardboard holder, etc.
The more like Hasbro medicom becomes, the less I like them...

Another reason I'm glad I'm not interested in the Carded Kubricks.  Good luck guys!

I'd spend $25-$30 for a carded AT-AT Driver but I'm not interested in the others, or in paying more than that.  ****, I've got some vintage carded that I only paid around $50 for...I'm not going to pay more for a modern item than I would vintage.

I'm also growing tired of Medicom re-releasing these figures on cards, but when they continue to release original trilogy figures like the Jawa and C-3PO on cards that match their Vintage counterparts I can't stop myself from wanting to get them for the nostalgia of it all.  Damn it, why did I ever start collecting these things?!?!?!?!

I can't help myself from wanting these either, especially since this has to be one of my favorite series. They really don't produce too many of these exhibition releases, so I don't really see it effecting pricing on the originals. It's actually kinda nice that they give collectors a chance to pick up a figure they may have missed the first time around. I'll definitely be looking to pick these up on the after-market.

I feel sick today.  I was watching a carded AT-AT Driver on eBay that started at $9.99 with no reserve.  It went off yesterday and I forgot to put in a bid before leaving for the PSWCS Summer Social....it sold on 2 bids for $13..50.

I hate stuff...
