An eensy-weensy, teeny-tiny bit of hope for the future...?

I sent out a "what's up with Star Wars Kubricks" email to the Medicom Press/PR rep and got this response:

Quote
We are sorry but we cannot give out informations of our future projects.
However, the Star Wars KUBRICK is an ongoing project so we have plans releasing items

I sent back a follow-up to ask whether the 'ongoing project' items were actually NEW or just more old figures on new cards, but I'm not expecting much more than the first line above as a response.  :-\

Thanks for asking Jeff, it helps remind them that there are people interested too. I will hope this means something for 2014- hopefully early 2014.

We've heard similar from Medicom before.  Good that they didn't come back with "the line is dead," but I'm still in "believe it when I see it" mode.

Kubricks have got to be dead. There hasn't been a new set, Star Wars or otherwise, in ages.

I wrote in and asked a bunch of questions yesterday, as I tend to do every 90 days or so. Here is the latest from Medicom, which is the same story they've been shilling for a few years now.  The line sure seems dead - I wish they would just confirm it or offer some explanation as to why there's been such a gap.

12/13/2013:

Dear customer,

Thank you for your inquiry.
We have not released a new item but the series is not discontinued.
We are sorry but we cannot disclose any further information.
Thank you for your understanding.

Best regards,
