Naw man, waiting is half the fun. Medicom likes it this way and to be honest so do I. Gives collectors time to catch up.

I thought they give out new info in July Aug for the new series and it's Sept already.
Was looking forward to news of a Bespin series, but to tell the truth I'm losing interest with all this hush hush nonsense.
I'm thinking the BAF is going to be the demise of this line, I'd rather just have 9 new figures.
It must be costing them to much to produce and they could just scrap the line instead of going back to the original 6 and chases.
Just a thought...

I would take any news about anything at this point....

Episode 7 kubs coming 2015?

Anyway now Disney own Star Wars they may not renew the contract with Medicom (Assuming it hasn't already expired).

It looks like they've retired the kubrick line and just moved everything over to bearbrick repaints.

So, is there any chance that the reason Medicom has not produced more Star Wars Kubes is that the Disney deal was in play and they were either told to wait or wanted to wait to see how things panned out?  Probably one has nothing to do with the other, but just curious if someone more in the know thinks there is any link to this.  It would be nice if the reason they let the line die off was something like this versus just poor planning or a lack of interest.

I don't think there is any chance of that.

Remember that Medicom hasn't released any new kubricks for months now not just Star Wars. In fact since the Real Steel kubs came out I think it's just been repaints/reissues/carded Star Wars kubs.

That's true, though all of the deluxe announcements were many months in advance of the release.  If they do have something coming, that means we're still not going to see product until next Summer at the earliest.  Blech.

I wonder if the tsunami/earthquake that happened last year may have disrupted things some?

Everything is made in china so I doubt that.

I think the license expired and everything was on hold for the deal. I should think Disney would let Medicom have it's SW license back since they have a license with Disney and the Be@rbrick line anyway.
I'm sure well see more SW than ever before. Seems Disney is after Hasbro too...
I don't collect Hasbro stuff but has anyone seen a drop off in new modern stuff being produced?
I will be sad if it's over, really wanted more ESB figures and a clone wars animated line but nothing we can do but wait and see.
Watch the fakes start pouring into the market now... I'd wouldn't mind seeing a good fake of a ATST driver. 6 for $50 please...
