Kubrick Prototypes
« on: August 16, 2013, 02:28 AM »
Has anyone every seen a kubrick prototype before? One that's for sale?

I haven't. And it just happens to be the prototype for one of the harder to come by and most sought after Star Wars kubricks around. 









This has got to go for big dollars, right? Or am I making too big of a deal about this?

This is pretty unique.

Glad someone mentioned this....it looks genuine but I have no idea what a genuine prototype looks like!

I saw it too, but when I realized he had another 70 prototypes for sale, and many more sold, I started thinking 3D printer in my head. Probably completely wrong, but that seems a strange thing to have hundreds of for sale-

All that said, I will probably be bidding.

Slimer from the unreleased Ghostbusters set was sold on ebay.

What if its the closest any of us will get to that sought after Kubrick though?? Maybe - even if its fake - it'd be kind of fun to own?

Oh dont get me wrong. If its the only way to get one then sure. My opinion is most are going to feel its RARE and real and it will probably go for a bit. Or maybe not. But seeing how the box sets have been dropping in price dramatically, you may get that set for 120.00 or so. I got mine for that price last month.

All this stuff is from a big trash bin from the Chinese factory. Thousands of them on ebay....
Looks more liek a mock-up to me but then again I could make this in about 20 minutes...
No provenance so resale is not going to happen but with all the big nothing coming from Medicom it's a "fun" buy.
Some crazy Swed will over pay for it I'm sure...  ::)

Please elaborate on this. I'd be curious to hear any info about this thing really being from a Medicom factory.

i think its probably a legit test shot that was stolen from the factory or the person works at the factory and did some dumpster diving.

Congrats! Be sure to post a bunch of pics. This was the first test-shot or prototype that I think any of us had seen, so i think you got it for a good price!
