Is anyone taking preorders for series 5 yet?

I just placed my pre-order yesterday at HLJ for 2 boxes of 12 for series 5.

Where can I preorder series 5?

Is anyone taking preorders for series 5 yet?

Do you guys realize that a master case from Robby.Jp is only about $230 if you pre-order it?  You can't beat that. 

I received my e-mail registration membership for RoBBy.jp and pre-ordered Series 5.  8)

Thanks

I know this is old hat to you hardcore Kubrickaholics  ;)
I received these in the mail today:
<<SNIP>>

I like the speeder and clone set quite a bit! I passed on the boxed sets though,
My buddy had them and the only figure I would have wanted was the Vader, but
Medicoms is WAY better. If I can get them cheap I`ll grab them.

I got the red clone with pack, I see you got the yellow, I wonder what other colors
they did? I think these might be the only 2 colors though.

I used a few of the rifles for my stormies:


I had the clones holding them, but the wieght of the gun and the softness of
their hands made them drop them a lot.

Nice grabs though! Is that the Fett from rupinthe3?
He`s a great seller, super fast shipping and product is always top notch.

I'll second that!  I picked up the carded Holo Leia that rupinthe3 had for sale ($51.90 shipped).

I bought it on Sunday, it was shipped on Monday, and I got it on Wednesday!

Now that's the kind of service I love!

The figure arrived in fantastic shape, the packaging was excellent and I even got a small refund on the shipping since it was less than expected!

I'll also add my praise for rupinthe3.  I bought a TRU box set and an Early Bird set (two separate purchases) from him and both arrived in absolutely fantastic condition.  His prices are outstanding and he doesn't gouge you on shipping. 

Has anyone invited him here?  I know Matt's bought a few things off of him too.

I got an early bird set and Rebo set off him seperatly too.
He emails me when he`s getting new stuff in sometimes too!
I have pointed him here a few times, not sure if he`s ever stopped by though.

Yeah, I think one of the seller's descriptions said that there were either "red" or "yellow" clones as "Mystery Clones".  I would have rather had the yellow, but I have 4 whites so I wouldn't miss one if I painted him  ;)

Yup, rupinthe3 is a great seller!  I didn't realize they sold Kubricks on a regular basis, I might have to check them out again! ;D

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.

If robby.jp hasn't closed their ordering yet and you want to go to the trouble of registering yourself there, their price for Series 5 works out to about $65 plus shipping (anywhere from $15-30 depending on the method you choose).

That works out to about $80-90 per box of 12.  You aren't going to find a price much better than that, and the longer you wait, the higher the price gets.

I have to say i really enjoy those bootlegs. I have been thinking about trying to pick them all up, but cash is a bit tight. If i see them at teh right price i plan to pick them up.

On a side note, 100 pages on the thread, thats awesome!

Yeah, we've let this one run a lot further than all the previous ones.  Add those prior 5 threads (I think) to this one, and we're probably closer to about 400 pages of Kubrick discussion, actually.  :o

If anyone wants those small single display cases that came out from Medicom, kubricka on eBay has 120 available for $3.33 each.

I was going to get 50 of them but that came to $166.50 US.  :o  Pass.  :'(
