Excellent work as usual! I like the reveal Vader a lot, nice how the helmet floats
a bit off the face to show it off, very cool!

Kubrick 12-Back!

Just put up an all new 12-Back design and 4-Lom card.  Scroll down to look.  Let me know what you think!

Why don't you put it on its correct ESB card?

I love your customs Tony, great stuff!  That 12-back design is really cool  ;D

Here are my first attempts at carding Kubricks (the glue that I used messed up the ink, so I have to redo them  :-\).  I downloaded the templates from FFURG.com  :)

Boba Fett



Bossk



After I took a pic of the Bossk, he somehow got turned around in the blister and his foot fell off  >:(.  Oh well, all the more reason to try again  ;)

Is the terrible AT-AT walking machine.
It's as big as a house on walking legs,
and whatever it steps on it crushes like eggs.

Not bad.  I think you should go for the vintage bubbles with the "canyon".  Footings make all the difference too.  You don't want your figs bouncing around in there.  Glue sticks work great!

Thanks Tony, I really appreciated your advice before I started  ;D
I just used blisters from a hotwheels car, it was the only one that was big enough and I didn't want to order the bubbles until I knew the steps of making a card. 
When you say "canyon" are you referring to the bottom of the bubble (how some of the older ones had a bump-like thing at the bottom)?  Should I put the colored cardboard inserts in the bubble to help reduce "shifting" of the figure?
Thanks again Tony  ;D

This all depends on what your goal is.  If you want to hang these on your wall then it doesn't really matter.  Use heavy paper.  It makes a big difference.

Hello everyone,

If anyone is interested, I can add you to the mailing list for my Carded Kubricks.  Being on the list means first dibs on deals and a discount on all orders, including bulk deals if you own a store or just want to buy a few.  I've has some inquiries from JD list members so I thought I'd make it a public announcement. 

Right now, I'm extending this deal to JD members and Carded Kubrick list members only.   As a promotion, I'm selling Jawas, Wickets, and IG-88s for $16 or all 3 for $45.  If you've been wondering about these but can't bring yourself to shell out the cash, this is a good opportunity to get one cheap.   

As always, trades are welcome!

Thanks!

Tony

Just want to mention what a great job Tony did on some custom carded Kubs I recently ordered (esb fett/sandtrooper/vader).  The removal helmet vader is awesome and I especially liked the custom painted black pauldron sandtrooper.  I think I like them better than the Bape and Parcos I've married them with; thanks again Tony!!!
