2012 Medicom Parco Toy Show
« on: May 23, 2012, 04:56 PM »
Looks like we'll be getting carded versions of the Vinyl Vader and Tie Fighter pilot from DX4 for the Medicom Toy Exhibition. The Kubrick line is still dead in my eyes so I can't be bothered to make a new thread about them.

ho, meet hum. I suppose it is better than a super desirable character that would become prohibitively expensive. It seems we should be getting an update by the end of June if a December release is planned.

Does anyone have any background info on how Medicom is performing?  Given that their cases of product seem to sell out in no time, I would have thought the company was doing well, or at least the SW Kubrick part of things.  I get the cost savings behind re-using existing molds to create new variations of characters (Veers/Imp Commander, Sandtrooper, Astromechs, etc.), but there's only so much collectors are going to take of this...

I'm more interested in the give-away carded figure that they are handing out this year.  Last year was the vinyl Obi-Wan.  Anyone taking bets?  Vinyl Tusken, vinyl Leia, vinyl Jawa?!

No, what I'm talking about is the following.  They announced last year that they were releasing the Stormtrooper and a re-carded Boba Fett at the show and would then have some available on the Project 1/6 site.  So we thought those were the only two figures we were getting.  Then, Medicom had a private event where they gave away carded vinyl Obi-Wan figures to the attendees.  What I'm saying is that I hope that they do the same thing this year and release another vintage nod carded figure.  I'm personally hoping for the Leia since we don't have a non-holo carded figure of her yet.

Sorry - I misread what you wrote.  Who all gets the free figure?  Leia is probably a good bet.  An Imperial Dignitary might be cool too...

Stole this from space monkey's post over on Kubrick Nation.  Couldn't wait for him to post it any longer...



This will look nice next to the 400% vac-metal C-3PO and TC-14 Kubricks.
