Thanks CB,cool encouragement from you..I'm really thought of giving up in searching for those Kuby's..It's really hard to get it from the place where I'm residing now.Yup,time zone differences,whereby have been bidded out most of the times..SW is part of my life though,but due to most figures either rare in getting or damn expensive from ebay...sigh..might be a sad turning point to others Kub's  released though.Ie..Metal gear.etc..
still in a midst of consideration though,as i'm still wish that miracles can happen,as i still believed in the Skywalker family still rocks the galaxy....

Same thing happened with my Imperial Officer (Veers) from Series 6. These things happen from time to time. I've had loose arms on my Bespin Luke and Hoth Han as well....

Yeah, I've given up on being a completest.
I'll still get a MC just in case there is a Chase I want to keep, but from now on its only a few from the regular series and a carded one here and there, oh and a 400% here and there as well, oh and an RAH here and there as well....
Seriously, I found that the Chase figures are the hardest thing to keep up with because of price.
If I cut them out it will leve the door open for some cool carded stuff and a few loose series ones now and again.
But alas with Star wars there is always something I want!
If my pockets were deep I'd buy those damn Attakus Sandies!
I also had to have that McQuarrie book that is on the way, the man is amazing and he did art for so many other things that include one of my other interests...Bigfoot!
All my geekness (well a good chunck) in one wonderful book!

Congrats!

The extra Luke Jedi will come in handy- You can boil & pop his head off, and put it on a Luke X wing from series 6 to create "Pilot luke with helmet off"
I would recommend getting a cheap TRU box set # 2 and using the ceremonial Luke head- it is younger looking, more new-hopey. those sets can be had in the $20- $25 range if you are patient, and they give you an extra imperial droid plus an ewok to crush with an AT-ST.
Title: Re: Recent Acquisitions
Post by: Gorkoracing on March 7, 2007, 09:45 AM
Thanks for the tip BDSWF.  I got all 10 of those for $51 shipped after the seller combined the shipping so I am even more excited that I got them for that price.  Do you have a link to the boil and pop method? I've never tried to do any customs.

Picked up a set this morning off good ol' eBay that I've wanted for quite a while now: the Luke/Leia Speederbike Set. I was sober so I got it for a relatively good price, I think. $110 shipped.   8)

I guess this paves the way for justifying the tracking down of the Imperial Speeder Bike with Scout Trooper set too.
Title: Re: Recent Acquisitions
Post by: Dan on March 20, 2007, 11:21 AM
Congrats on the endor twins!
I haven't pulled the trigger on the scout/bike set myself. I have a small army of scout troopers already, and they look pretty good standing next to the GH speederbikes. It's tough to spend that much on a prop I already have with Leia and Luke. But if the right deal presents itself...

Just thought i'd add that i got my third Kubrick now...the Spirit of Anakin Skywalker. Unfortunately, it wasn't the variant (sighs)

I wonder if, now that they've done the Blue Senate Guard variant, if they're going to move onto the prequel trilogy next? I for one wouldn't mind a Jango Fett, or Mace Windu, but the sheer volume of Clone variations would be nuts, unless they only did certain unique ones like Cody, Bacara, Bly, etc. Grievous would be an awesome choice, in my opinion, but then again i thought Grievous got the shaft big time.

Two more, there's actually 7 members and there's a pic to prove it.  I'll see if I can dig it up.

ETA - while there are seven (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Figrin_D%27an_and_the_Modal_Nodes) members, only six were playing when Luke and Ben came to the Cantina.  So I guess six Kubricks would be correct if you're looking for OT accuracy.  :P

Yeah a set of all 6/7 would be cool.  Weren't 2 playing very similar instruments so you could pretty closely remake the scene.

Edit: just checked and there are 5 different instruments out of the 7 so i guess you could have all 7 if the 2 different kubricks came with a total of 5 different instruments.  I'd like to see a pic of the kubrick cantina band when someone finally puts the set together.

Those blasted instruments are delicate! I was rummaging through my accessories the other day, and 2 of the wind instruments have broken at the mouthpiece- luckily each band member comes with a set rather than just one instrument, so I'm not short, but it was sad to see the debris, and they are still in their plastic!

Well.. I just made my 2nd Kubrick purcahse when I was at CIV.   My first was the TIE Pilot cause he fits perfectly in my LEGO TIE Interceptor.   I saw the Max Rebo set way atop the shelf of one of the vendors at CIV and started to drool.   If I have a collecting focus, it's the OT aliens- more specifically, the musicians.   So I had to drop the money and pick them up.  Now to just find a set of the Modal Nodes (6 will do)

Oh...that is a 400%! I really thought it was 100%, but looking back at the pic, of course it's 400%, as it's surrounded by all the others.

Picked up my Boba Fett last night through HW guy for TH trades. Was informed this morning I am getting Zuckuss and Dengar as well (he won them off an asian ebay seller for 20$ each and free shipping).

Now I only need 4-lom from wave 1 and Greedo to complete my original trilogy 'bad guys' Kuby collection ;D

These HW Treasure hunt trades are really working in my favor...the unlikeliest of allies-a scalper

I've probably acquired 1/3 of my Kubes via scalper trades :D

Hey guys, I am now a Kubrickaholic!

It all started the other day, when I acquired a basic Series 2 Han Solo from a local toy store. I was stunned at how great this little guy was...and I suddenly felt the urge to buy him some friends!  ;D

So I am now at:

Series 6 (RA-7, Rebel Trooper, R4 unit, Death Star Trooper, TIE Fighter Pilot, and Luke Skywalker X-Wing Pilot), purchased from forum member Padawan.

Bossk- I saw this guy on eBay and could resist it. He looks like my pet lizard. So I bought him.

Luke Skywalker (Jedi) and Yoda from a trade with forum member evenflow.

I will definitely be posting pictures of my growing Kubrick collection once all of this Kubrick delight arrives! Then I'll buy more. ;D

Not new acquisitions as much as newly freed...

I finally got around to getting holo Leia and Droid's Fett off of their cards.

I had heard somwhere on these boards that ironing on the back of the card (with a towel in between) would loosen the glue and allow you to pull the bubble off- Well I tried that for about 20 minutes, but the plastic just off of the cardback became very weak and brittle, while the glue held strong. Not a big deal but I thought it was worth a try-

Title: Re: Recent Acquisitions

Mine was a really snug fit and I was initially scared to push it on all the way too.  But I did without any damage to the paint and was still able to get the helmet off.
Title: Re: Recent Acquisitions
Post by: SaaiBork on November 24, 2007, 06:00 AM
I think the trick is to let the air escape from the helmet while putting it on or taking it off. I was struggling with this too on the 400% stormtrooper. If you tilt the helmet while putting it on it all goes much easier. However, I have not tried this with Boba Fett.

I don't think that he's done, I just think he was cleaning house a bit.  He posted this over on Kubrick Nation:

I'm a bit nervous now, the shipping box weighs 23 pounds.  I hope it doesn't destroy my wall.  It wouldn't be spouse-approved anymore if it did!

If it doesn't match up with the wall studs exactly, just build a quick frame for it to mount to and screw it into the studs for sure.  You can paint whatever amount of frame is needed to match the wall and it wouldn't really be noticeable.  I don't know the dimensions, but I'm thinking 23 pounds into just drywall maybe not so good.  Might be ok as long as you hit one side into a stud, top and bottom, but still a bit risky. 
Title: Re: Recent Acquisitions
Post by: BrentS on January 4, 2008, 11:30 AM
I'm hoping the actual weight is less than 23 lbs!  That doesn't even have any Kubes either.  The overall dimensions are 27" high and 39" wide and 2" deep.  Its made from acrylic with a mirrored back finish.  It will have 160 slots.  It is drilled for mounting and will come with mounting hardware.

My other problem is that in my infinitely short sighted lack of wisdom on all things building, we had the commercial grade metal studs used to finish the basement.  I let the contractor talk me into it and never considered the possibility of hanging something this size onto the drywall.   :-\   

Your idea about buiding a backing on the front is a good idea.  I may have to have someone far more experienced in building things come over to my house and make a few suggestions.

The good news is, it seems to weigh a lot less than 23 lbs.  It only have four screw holes in the middle portion.  I still think I might want to attach some backing to my drywall first and then screw it in. 

Still meditating on this.

Yeah, that case looks sharpe. The Kuby's will display nicely with the mirrored background. Looking foward to the whole set up.  :)

Post by: Morgbug on January 9, 2008, 12:50 PM
That's a beauty.  Do we need that many slots though or are you optimistic for the future? 

Maybe you could use some self tapping screws into the metal studs?  Or drill a smaller hole in first through the drywall and the metal stud, then put a larger screw into that?  I assume the four holes for mounting are in a square orientation; if you can set it so two of the screws are anchored into a stud, you should be fine.  I'd just hate to see that thing fall.   :-\
Title: Re: Recent Acquisitions
Post by: BrentS on January 18, 2008, 01:32 PM
Morgburg - 160 slots is a bit optimistic for sure.  However, I'll have plenty of expansion room and can do some alternate displays for some Kubes too.  I've got a handful of Marvel and Batman Kubricks so I can fill out those collections as well.

With some lunchtime help from I am Sith today, we got the Kubrick Case mounted on the wall.  We used 4 heavy duty dry-wall toggle bolts.  It feels very secure and it looks fabulous.  I'll post an update picture from Yoda and Luke real soon. 

The fun part will be unboxing, opening and arranging all the Kubricks.

I am Sith, how much are you getting second chance offers on the Snowtroopers?

I didn't write down the first one, so I can't remember how much it actually was.  I want to say it was in the $60-$70 range plus shipping.  The one I just got ran me $50 shipped.  I was outbid with 6 seconds left on the auction.  I e-mailed the seller to ask if they had any extras and if they would consider a second chance and the offer showed up within the hour...  Knowing what they have gone for in recent auctions, I consider $50 shipped a pretty good price for one of these.

Title: Re: Recent Acquisitions
Post by: icruise on May 5, 2008, 05:28 AM
We're in Japan at the moment visiting my wife's family, and so I decided to take the opportunity to find some Kubricks. Strangely, I had *very* little luck finding Kubricks of any kind in Osaka's DenDen Town, but I did find some good online stores, and just today I found a fantastic store hidden away in my wife's (relatively small) hometown. They had all sorts of Kubricks, and quite a few Star Wars ones. The prices weren't too bad. Better than ebay, in any case. My purchases break down like this:

In stores:
Scout Trooper + Speederbike set
Star Wars Series 4 & 5 sets
Tron Sets C & D
A few miscellaneous Star Wars Kubricks

Online:
Two 400% Darth Vader Kubricks (it was either pay over $50 for one with shipping or pay $80 for two and get free shipping, so I decided to get two)
Minority Report box of 24
Edward Scissorhands box
Monsters Inc sets 1 & 2 (minus Yeti)
Sesame Street series 2 + Ernie
Universal Monsters series 1 & 2
Back to the Future normal figures
5,000 yen Kubrick grab bag (included Kubricks from a number of different series, like Alien, Kelloggs, Disney, Marvel and a Kaws Kubrick set)
+ various miscellaneous Kubricks

I was happy that I got a chase figure in my box of Minority Report Kubricks (Lara Clarke) and was amazed to find a blue Snaggletooth in my set of Star Wars series 5 figures. I thought for sure they would have removed the chases, but no. Anyway, I spent way too much, but it was fun.

No, I meant Obi Wan (I can't afford Yoda!).  And I do think that it is awesome, with his awesome translucent blue skin and white outlines of spirit-ness.

Out of curiosity, why is Yoda more awesome than Obi-Wan  ???  He doesn't even have any cool, white outlines indicating that he is clearly a scary ghost, and not simply a blue gelatin muppet.
Title: Re: Recent Acquisitions
Post by: icruise on July 18, 2008, 10:58 AM
Spirit of Obi-wan is just a very common figure that people can't even give away, while Yoda is an exclusive figure of which very few were made, so it's going for $200+ on ebay. Aesthetically, one isn't markedly better than the other (and as you say, I might in fact prefer Obi-wan).
Title: Re: Recent Acquisitions
Post by: Sir Real on July 18, 2008, 11:08 AM
Hmm, got my Yoda Spirit for $120, guess I got lucky.

But I like the other Spirits better, I think.  The whilte highlights really add to the look.  I would have preferred they used the series 5 Yoda as the base instead of series 9, since s9 is a Prequel version (younger Yoda), and the Spirit version should be the oldest version of the character (Lucas film redo of ROTJ ending notwithstanding... grr).  Like Spirit OB1 is old, Spirit Yoda should also be old.  And I'll have to compare the figures to be sure, but didn't the series 5 version also have smoother clothing, which would have make the white highlighting more possible?

Kane with Chest Burster was the first Alien figure that I got (he costed me as much as the entire Power Loader set did).  He is probably in my top 5 of Kubricks.

I finally get the time to register for this kubrick forum and tell you my recent kurbrick purchase I have made. Or should I say a disaster

Got and paid $105.00 for a Carded Blue Uzay on ebay and this is how I got it

Welcome to JD kaysui0248.  :)

Oh my, not good at all.  :-\

I looked at the auction you won, a little eBay research.  ;)  You should be able to get the funds back through Paypal. Did you take the insurance? If not it, it still not as shown in the auction. Did you send the seller an e-mail on this matter? Was the Blue Stars shipped in a box or an envelope? Sure one heck of a card crease.  :-\
Title: Re: Recent Acquisitions
Post by: kaysui0248 on September 3, 2008, 06:05 AM
Hi there DSJ. Have contacted the ebay seller and filed a paypal claim. His/her reply back was "I feel so sorry to hear that. I will not take responsible for item damage Unless the extra insurance fee is paid.you didn't pay for insurance fee and you naver asked me about the insurance fee.so i cannot refund you. you should ask to the postman". Ok fair enough I did not ask and pay for that little bit of extra insurance

But turns out on the postage label the amount paid was 3,400 Korean Won (which is a bout $3.00 USD on xe.com). Seller charged me $16.00 USD for shipping to the UK and this is how it arrived. A paper envelope used and 2 bits of bubble wrap, wrapped round carded  kubrick

Front & back view of envelope and when I opened it

No issues. I was a little apprehensive at first but I question him of a few other loose figures from the set, like did they include there accessories and what not, and things seemed to check out. I paid under $40 for  it with a few bucks in shipping so I think I did alright. Of course this means I have to try and track down the others  ;)
Title: Re: Recent Acquisitions
Post by: DSJ™ on September 3, 2008, 06:35 AM
Holy crap! That is what I feared, a bubble envelope.  ::)

Should have been sent in a box, to many horror stories of cared figures sent in an envelope. I have see the results on vintage SW figures and it's not pretty.  :'(

Registered air mail with signature, it may have cost that much. Sometimes the label is the cost but being registered & with signature would be above that and not show on the postage label.

Even without insurance, it's still his own damn fault IMHO that it got damaged sending it like that. Hopefully Paypal will come thru.

"Holy crap! That is what I feared, a bubble envelope."

DSJ just for your info no way was a bubble envelope used. Like I said before just a standard paper envelope with some bubble wrap for carded figure. I know, I can't believe what some people do, just to cut overheads. I understand the the world economy is not that great with all the words about credit crunch!

Not really, yes I found the auction doing a search & looks to be kinda hidden. No "Star Wars" in the title & ships to United States would be a factor. Also the time it ended at 21:42 PDT & the middle of the week, I would say people would have been nappy for the night.

I paid $122.50 total.  That covered the cost of the 400%, shipping within Japan and shipping from Tokyo to me in Canada.  So the prices that are out there on the Bay as of yesterday weren't bad at all.  I don't know if my friend in Japan nicked me for a little out of pocket expenses or not, but he usually doesn't, so that should be ballpark to cost and shipping.  I know there's an auction sitting there for $99 before shipping. They don't seem to be flying off the market right now, so maybe you can beat the price pretty easily?

I was on somewhat of a eBay spree earlier this month and I bid on this guy kind of just for the heck of it. My max bid was the starting bid of $9.99 and nobody else bid on it. I didn't really think I'd have a chance to win it and figured at least one other person would bid. After winning I think I figured out why I was the only one... Shipping was twenty ******* bucks. I know it's Hong Kong to the US but $20, seriously? I kind of feel like I got screwed on this one. Lesson learned I suppose, always remember to check the shipping before bidding. ::)

Did I at least pay a fair price for the Kuby itself or did I get completely screwed?

$20. seems to be the shipping standard but it could be had for a bit less but not much, $15. bottom line. Rates are up all over, heck our rates go up in the new year which I'm afraid to see. Most of the Kuby's come from the Orient & ship EMS (Express Mail Service), priority handling from acceptance to delivery in the destination country or territory & end-to-end tracking plus signature on delivery.

All in all, yeah the shipping is about right.

Got these guys a few days ago. They were one of the few main series Kubricks I didn't have. I wanted them, but never found a good deal -- series 3 seems to be the hardest to find for whatever reason. I particularly wanted a C-3PO because I have the Sideshow life-sized droids coming early next year and I figured I should have them both in Kubrick form. Anyway, I got them while the Live.com ebay discount was at 30%, which brought the price down from "obscene" to merely "ridiculous."  ;D I'm keeping Han in carbonite bagged since I already have one that I got for $3 or $4 in Japan when I was there.

I just have a couple of the bounty hunters left and I will have all the normal series SW kubricks.

I finally got my carded Greedo today. It sure is a nice piece. I just wish these buggers didn't have to be so damned expensive. I'd love to pick up a few more but I don't think I can spare the dough.

Picked up a complete set of Series 2 carded figures last night.  The auction showed the figures outside of the display box, but the description stated that it comes with it.  I'm not confident that it will though.  I don't care either way, I just want them to come in good shape so I can display them.

I'm happy to report that my carded Series 2 figures arrived today.  They didn't have the display box as I originally thought, but there were in perfect minty-mint condition!  Can't wait to get more Oscar cases to display them.

Sweet, congrats. After my experience with Series 1 I'm glad yours came okay. Bummer about the display not being with it. The chance of cards getting damaged and the lack of the display has prevented me from getting Series 2 like that.

Yep, that was the one.  He had it up for $85 + $6 shipping and it didn't sell.  He re-listed it for $80+$6 and I asked if he would take $80 shipped.  He took the deal and adjusted the auction to account for free shipping.  I was quite pleased.

Since Medicom is delaying Series 10, I felt a purchasing void so I bought a few more non-SW Kubricks to add to my collection.  Picked up the Marvel Series 2 Spider-Ham chase, the Matrix Reloaded Architect chase, Alien Series 1 Nostromo Suit Ripley and Series 2 Kane and Ripley figures.  Series 10 better get here soon or I'm going to spend all the money I have saved...

Okay, so I just picked up this Carded Kubrick Shadow Guard (http://cgi.ebay.com/Medicom-Star-Wars-Shadow-Guard-Kubrick-Card-Board_W0QQitemZ270404222837QQcmdZViewItemQQptZLH_DefaultDomain_0?hash=item3ef558ff75&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14&_trkparms=65%3A10%7C66%3A2%7C39%3A1%7C240%3A1318%7C301%3A0%7C293%3A1%7C294%3A50) for $20 on Ebay.  Was this a good deal?  It's $35 shipped, which seemed to be about what people were paying pre-shipping in other auctions.  I only collect loose and will probably just open it anyway - did I get a deal or just suckered into paying an average price because I have S10 cravings on my mind?

I'd say you did good on the Shadow Guard, when it 1st came out it was going for $49.99 plus shipping on the bay. I just checked completed & one went for $32.01 & another for $34.99.

Thanks - I saw those and decided I had to pull the trigger, even though I don't normally go for any of the carded releases.  I couldn't talk the guy into shipping loose for less - I would have had more leverage before buying, but didn't want someone else to scoop it up while I was waiting.   :P

No dice - he doesn't have any more shadow guards or any other Kubies for sale.   :(  I did put in a plug for us all that if he comes across more,there is a large group of interested collectors here who might be willing to buy outside of Ebay to save everyone some money.  I'll post to the group if I ever hear anything back, but not counting on it.

Anyway, I was getting a weird error when I was looking up my order history so I decided to give them a call.  I spoke to someone at the store who then looked up the order and confirmed that it was on its way.  I still have yet to get an e-mail confirmation on the order and my CC hasn't been charged yet either.  We should know in a few days if they actually had two in stock or not since they are only shipping from WI.

I got my last carded shadow guard in the mail, so no more Kubies for another week or two - probably not until S10 and the Fetts arrive.  I almost won an Early Bird set off Ebay early this morning, but price went just a little higher than I Wanted to spend given all of my other Kubie purchases of late.  Also kind of hoping to see what Deluxe W3 brings in case there are better versions of these figs to nab.

I got the Series 1 Boba Fett Prototype with Red and Yellow gauntlets from Ebay for 102.00.   Was that a good deal? Also  this figure is different from the chase in Boba Fett set  right?

Well, you might want to double check that.  A very similar easier chase comes with the Fett series, and that should be more in the $40-50 range.   :-\  Hope you actually got the S1 chase - that is much more rare, though I wouldn't pay a lot for it now given how similar the new one is.

kenji over at RS posted this pic. The backpack is different, I am guessing that this is the rear of the "Prototype/Vintage Color" Fett with the green gun as we have seen the backs of the other Fett's.

(http://threads.rebelscum.com/photogallery/watermark.php?file=111457)

Quite an interesting color scheme.
Title: Re: Recent Acquisitions
Post by: Jayson on June 27, 2009, 12:42 AM
Weird. Where did this color scheme come from? I think for a little more variety, they should have had a chase use the Vintage 12" Fett color scheme.

If he has over 500 feedback and the item was packed well, I don't think it makes sense to assume that he was just lying. At least contact him to give him a chance to make it right. I wouldn't just file a complaint with paypal right off the bat.

Boba Fett - Vintage.
Boba Fett - ESB.
Boba Fett - ROTJ.
Darth Vader.
Han Stormtrooper.
Luke Stormtrooper.
Shadow Stormtrooper.
Wicket.
Paploo.
Teebo.
Wicket 400% & 100%. (Cartoony).

Well, I just finished a bidding war (probably with some of you) for some Stealthtank's goodies on Ebay.  I managed to get the Endor Luke and Leia for $39 and $37 respectively and a Skiff Guard Lando for $3.50.  I tried to get a few other chases, but with everything ending within a 3 minute time span I wasn't able to bid on all I wanted and knew I would get sniped if I bid beforehand.  Really low prices on early bird Luke and Leia - I would have paid beyond those prices, but oh well.  I'm pretty happy to get the Endor set - that's one I never figured I would own.

I think we were all trying to win that in the last few seconds.  I had it at $10 most of the day and bid up to $30 thinking I would get it for sure, but $32 took it home.   :-\

There were sime nice prices all around.  Veers was relatively cheap, as were Blue Snaggletooth and the S4 Chase Vader.  There was a "Protype Fett" that I almost won as well - looked like the common chase from the fett series, but it said J-Slot in the picture.  I think the description was wrong - if not, someone got a great deal at $60.

I'm glad you guys were able to score some nice kubs last night.

Though it pains me to have to sell much of my top shelf goodies, every penny has helped to bring our new store, Super7 Florida, to life on August 29th.

Many here may recognize the S7 name by the magazine, books, toys, and artwork we produce along with being the official sponsor of the popular Skullbrain.org message board.

But we are also the guys producing the new Jumbo Machinder Stormtrooper (complete with rocket firing fist) in collaboration with Lucasarts and Kotobukiya of Japan.

It was tough keeping the news under wraps for so long, but those of you who are interested can read more about the new store opening on the 2nd page of Vinylpulse's SDCC coverage on its website.  CollectionDX also has a nice little write-up about yesterday's comic con unveiling of the new Jumbo Stormtrooper at the Kotobukiya booth.

I still have my very best, top shelf Star Wars kubricks safe and sound in my room, but lately it's been like an episode of survivor whenever a new bill arrives in the mail.

It said I was outbidded so I did not put another bid in. In the end, I only won 2 auctions. Then today for some strange reason I won it for the bid of 124.50. I never placed a higher bid. The auction ended and I lost. Not sure what happened here.Has this ever happened to anyone before. I 've been on Ebay for 11 years now and its never happened before.

I won the Anakin  for 104.00, Logray for 148.00 , and Yak Face for 124.50.  Ouch my wallet hurts. The weird thing is my max bid on Yak Face was 124.00. It said I was outbidded so I did not put another bid in. In the end, I only won 2 auctions. Then today for some strange reason I won it for the bid of 124.50. I never placed a higher bid. The auction ended and I lost. Not sure what happened here.Has this ever happened to anyone before. I 've been on Ebay for 11 years now and its never happened before.

Nice wins!  Logray was a great score.  I hardly ever see that available. These are all good prices - I was bidding on all three, but they surpassed my limits. 

Are you sure you didn't bid higher on the Yakface?  The bid history shows you were the last person to bid with no earlier bids, which looks to me like you sniped it right at the end with a bid of 124.50 or higher.  The bids increase by $2.50 when you get to that level, so it makes sense that your bid was $2.50 higher than the next highest at $122.  I initially thought something wasn't right with the other guy's bidding, since he went from $120 to $122, but looks like he put in $120 about half an hour before it closed, then bumped that to $122 ten minutes later.  Your bid registered about 20 minutes after that and about a minute after I hit my limit ($115).

My guess is that he probably thought he typed '4' for '124' but hit either the '5', '7', or '8' key by mistake to actually bid 125, 127, or 128, to have placed the 124.50 bid.  In any case, all good prices for Yakkie.   :D

Nope, not relisted... yet. He ended the auction which results in cancelling the bids & resetting what was the original listing when posted on the bay. When an auction is listed with a bin & someone just bids then the bin vanishes.

I had a BIN with the original listing in the amount of 59.99, but before a JD boardmember could buy it, someone laid down a 1 cent bid.  So I just added the Han to the boardmember's current order and ended the listing.

I'm playing major catch up as I only started collecting in June, mostly concentrating on basic 6 sets. So far I've got :-

Series 1 Basic 6
Series 2 Sandtrooper & Both Band Members
Series 3 Basic 6 except C-3PO
Series 4 None
Series 5 Basic 6 + Han Endor
Series 6 Basic 6 + Wedge
Series 7 Basic 6 (just got my Gamorrean Guard woop woop)
Series 8 Basic 6
Series 9 Basic 6
Series 9 Basic 6
Series 10 Basic 6
Bobafett Series
and today I just received the 2005 TRU boxset that I bought on ebay over a month ago (thought I'd been ripped off).

Can't get enough of these guys but a bit worried about some of the Chase prices.

Is that to say you don't like them or just don't think they're worth the price.  I love my Kubie set - I just think the figs look ultra cool and it's a bit rarer than a lot of my other stuff, which makes it feel a little more special.  The prices are definitely hard to stomach though. :P

They are small enough to keep without a rented space, which save some money  ;)

When the line first came out, they weren't really very pricey. Series 1 basic set of 6 cost me something like $30-35. I don't remember what the chases were going for at the time, but since they were just repaints of Fett I wasn't interested in them anyhow.

The Parco show carded figs were always spendy, but at one a year that was no big deal.

The same is true of the later series, if you picked them up as they came out it wasn't too expensive. But by series 5 those chase figures were approaching triple digits. The early boxsets were reasonable, as they were wide releases to Japan Toys R Us ($30-40 each).

But since the mail away exclusives started, and the boxsets come out commanding 200-250 each, I can't imagine playing catch-up. Now the re-releases of the series on cards are expensive, but may or may not be easy to pass on depending on your collecting habits.

As usual, it all comes down to buying what you like at prices you can live with.

I should re-phrase that, I'm worried my wife finds out about the chase prices   :o. I got what I thought were some good deals, like Series 5 for £22 and the TRU Boxset for £18. Once I've got the basic series I'll maybe slow down a bit  :P. And as for the total ebay tokens I've spent I'm refusing to add it all up, I might get a shock  :'(

"Posting an image" is actually a misnomer, you don't post an image, you post a link to an image that is uploaded somewhere else.  The main point to understand when posting images here (or to any messageboard) is that those images don't actually exist here, they have to be uploaded to another host/site first.  (You can't upload images directly to a message board.)  Once those pictures are uploaded to another site (e.g., Photobucket.com), you create a message here, and in the body of that message, you provide links to where the pictures actually "live".  Those "image links" are clearly provided on Photobucket, so you can easily copy them and paste them directly into the body of your message here.

I don't know why the Super Battle Droid has such skinny legs, when the regular Battle Droid has standard kub legs.  Makes the SBD really hard to keep standing, I had to use double stick tape under his feet just so he wouldn't fall over.

Yeah, not remotely impressed witht hat figure.  If it had been something better, I probably would have splurged to get the different clone and Jango, but couldn't see paying $200 when all I really wanted was Padme and TC.

My max bid for that one was $100 shipped.  Glad I was outbid by a fellow forum member!

That's a nice grab.  I was hoping to land that for about $100 as well as one of the harder chases to come across, but $123 is still a very nice price.  Well done GT!

Faked using what?  I haven't looked at one close enough to know - I take it there is something similar enough to the orginal out there to act as a suitable fake?

Yeah, the factory mold rejects.  Not too long after Series 3 hit, a whole pile of fake Lograys hit the secondary market.  I have no idea where the last round of chat about it lies, but suffice it to say that someone got a hold of a pile of Medicom Logray cast-offs and re-painted/touched them up enough to sell them as the legit product.  I'll dig around to see if I can find the links, but fake Lograys are out there for sure...

I just bit on the 2009 5pc Box Set.  I think I've got the Black Friday bug and just couldn't resist.  Found it on the bay for $199 with $10 shipping in the US, so after Bing Cashback (10% right now...-$20) and Ebay Bucks (-$4), it's only going to cost me $185 shipped.   8)

Nicely done.  I had my window open to bid, then had to go upstairs to help one of my kids and forgot all about it.  Out of curiousity, what was your max bid going to be?  I might have gone up to $100 on it, so if you were going to bid more, it's just as well that I didn't bid and you got it for less.   ;)

That's a nice price on the Fett.  Solo for $110 seems a bit high - they've been going for well under $100 if you're patient, but sometimes it's worth a few extra bucks to just get it done.  Nice additions!

I've been eyeing up the Jango/Boba 2-pack for a while tonight.  Found a BIN tonight for $70, so I finally caved.   ;)

Title: Re: Recent Acquisitions

Nope. I bought them off bigj22.

If you are looking for a loose Sacul he just put one up on ebay at a very good price. I'd be surprised if it lasted long. I was torn between the loose and the carded as I will ultimately be opening the figure. Decided to go for the carded in the end as I tought it a steal at $200.

Title: Re: Recent Acquisitions
Post by: JediJman on January 14, 2010, 05:29 PM
Thanks for the tip!  I picked up the loose Sacul and Jar Jar as well.  I would have bought them off Ebay had I known they would be that low!  Jar Jar is one I had been avoiding, but I have all of the other "common chases," so it's really nice to check that off the list.  I figured Sacul would be one of the last ones I'd add to my collection, so great to find him as well.   ;D

By the way, I already bought a big batch of figs from Jerry and they were in great shape.  Don't hesitate to buy from him if you need any of the goodies he has up for sale!
Title: Re: Recent Acquisitions
Post by: Jonny on January 14, 2010, 06:35 PM
Glad to help.

I have another batch of stuff coming from Jerry also. Once that arrives I'm very close to completing my collection. All I'm missing is Series 9, the Sith speeder, the Jango/Boba 2 pack and Saesee Tiin (which seems to be one of the most elusive figures).

I hope to be up to date by the time the Deluxe wave comes out.

Got the Rebo Band set today in Tokyo. I wasn't really even looking for it, but I've wanted one for a long time and with the Jabba wave coming up I really wanted to get my hands on one.

I picked up a Saesee Tiin off Ebay today for $77 ($70 total after Ebay and Bing rebates).  Only problem is that he doesn't come with his lightsaber.   :-\  Does anyone who has one of these have a reference for how similar his saber might be to others?  I think it's green, so I'm wondering if Grievous or Jedi Luke or Qui Gon have sabers that are fairly similar.  I couldn't find a good reference pic on the interweb, but I rarely see this figure offered up anywhere and decided to jump on it while I could.

As you can tell, there isn't another lightsaber that I'm aware of from the other series that has a hilt that is all black and that long.  You might be able to get away with painting the green Grievous saber hilt black, but I doubt the hilt will be long enough to pass as the real thing.

No coincidence - I outbid you in the final seconds just before you outbid me.  Sorry about that as it just worked out to you paying a few bucks more.   :-\  The same guy emailed me with a second chance offer Buy-It-Now price of $65 + $12 shipping.  That actually worked better for me, because BIN deals quailify for the Bing discount of 8%.   ;D  Kudos to you on getting one as well!

Not to freak you guys out, but I'd be wondering about these being real or not.  Sounds like castoff figures maybe without their accessories?
 

You mean factory rejects?  I hope not, but I bought with Paypal, so should be protected if it turns out to be a crap item.  The guy has 1100+  Ebay feedback and sells a ton of Medicom stuff, so hopefully the figs are in good shape.  I'm bummed about the missing lightsaber, but when am I going to have a shot at Saesee Tiin for $70 shipped?  Besides, Dale dared me to finish off my missing Kubes by the end of the year and I've only got about ten more to go.   ;)

Hrm...it's actually longer than the others?   ???  That's not good.  The Grievous saber does look like the best option of the three.  Not perfect, but it will have to do - I can't justify $30+ (minimum) just for a slightly different saber handle.  Not yet anyway.   ;)

Did you 2 both get a win e-mail from eBay/seller on that one or is there another auction that ended that is not showing?  ???

From what I can see in the end of bidding (http://offer.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewBids&item=140377872523), the 07:02:28 bid was out bid even tho it's the same amount as the 07:02:34 PST bid. Tied for the proxy bid then the 1st bid wins until you can bid higher.

I only see this (http://cgi.ebay.com/Medicom-Star-Wars-Series-8-Kubrick-Secret-Master_W0QQitemZ140377872523QQcmdZViewItemQQptZLH_DefaultDomain_0?hash=item20af2c588b) one auction completed for Tiin.

Sorry for the confusion on this.  Here's what happened:
 - Spooks and I bid each other up on the one that sold yesterday.
 - Spooks won it in the final seconds with a higher bid
 - Seller contacted me with a second chance offer, stating that he had a second Tiin, also without the Saber for a BIN price of $65
 - I searched for it on Ebay and couldn't find it (trying to log into Bing then buy it for the rebate)
 - The email had a link to buy it and was available only to me until Feb 1st.  I have never seen that before
 - Looked up second chance offers and sellers can sell a duplicate item without relisting by offering to the next highest bidder

I went ahead and just bought it via the link provided and was very happy to see that I got a bing rebate even though it didn't initially show up when looking at the auction page.  Guess we'll see what kind of condition they're in when they arrive.

When appleheadbb was selling all of those loose Snowtroopers, I ended up getting two of them by receiving second-chance offers.  They have worked out for me in the past, I hope that they work out for you two guys as well.

OK, gotcha on the Tiin auction. Really strange why the seller would have 2 loose & no accessories like Brent mentioned, hope it pans out. 
Title: Re: Recent Acquisitions
Post by: JediJman on February 1, 2010, 10:02 AM
Thanks - I hope it does too!  What was Appleheadbb's story on why he had snowtroopers with no accessories?  I imagine these are factory guys who just pocket a few items, but am hoping they're not the leftover scrap with defects.   :-\

TheSnowtroopers didn't appear to be rejects, but it could have also been my untrained eye ;).  I also purchased an uncarded Blackhole Stormtrooper from him that was definitely a reject though.  It came with only one gauntlet.  However, I contacted him about it and he gave me a partial refund, so I was okay until I bought a carded one...  Again, I hope the Tiin works out.

They may not have been "rejects" in that they may not have failed some QC check due to defects, but they are/were definitely "rejects" in the sense that they were/are excess unused product from Medicom. 

They may just be "extra" as in they were not needed due to the volume of cases sold.  Medicom makes more than they need to ensure they get enough to build all the master cases they want to sell.  The extras are supposed to be scrapped, but these guys pull them from the dumpsters and sell them weaponless/as-is.

Post by: Morgbug on February 1, 2010, 02:04 PM
Second chance offers are totally legit too, I often use them if I have a second of an item on auction and am happy with the second place bidders bid.  I've also been fortunate enough to have had the offer on several occasions with great success.  So I think that part is totally legit for what its worth.

Well done.  I was hoping to buy the second offering in advance and ship with the Saesee, but the seller said it already shipped.  I was tempted to wait for the second chance offer because I get $4-5 back using BIN, but like I said, hard to resist at these prices.  Did you get your Saesee yet?  I got a tracking number, but can't seem to get it to work.  Really hoping these aren't crap figures now that I've ordered two of them. :P

Yeah, it was an auction listing that also had a BIN.  The BIN price was only a few dollars more than the openning auction bid, so it didn't surprise me that someone bought it.  Oh well, someone ended up with a great deal.

Say it ain't so!

I've made my committment to the Kub's- They'll be the last SW line I sell.

I've been in a pretty aggressive clean-out mode with the Hasbro stuff (probably 60-75% of my figures are gone from its' high point).

But the Kubricks aren't terrible space eaters- they have all the characters I really need to have a good star wars collection, and can fit in one nicely sized plastic tub if I decide I am tired of looking at them for a while.

By the way, how long does it take to get registered at KN?  I submitted a request several days ago and STILL have not had my registration go through.  I might be interested in the Lost figures that guy has up for sale if anyone can PM him on my behalf. 

In related news, I broke down during the drought and bought 3 Lost Kubes.  I found an auction for Jack, Sayid, and Kate for $20 shipped, so I cracked.   ::)  Got them today though and they are amazing.  I didn't realize they came with cool little accessories (Gun, Walkie Talkie, and Hand-cuffs respectively).

I did and for a price I was happy with although slightly more than I would like to have paid.

Just picked up the carded Parco Sandtrooper this afternoon.  I think I got a steal too at $77 shipped.  I'm just hoping it comes in as good a shape as it looks on-line...

BTW, for anyone still looking for the Medicom Collector's Club 5-pack that has the Snowtrooper, Droids 3PO, etc., the same seller I bought this figure off of has a set with a BIN of $75.  Also seems like a steal for those figures...

SCORE!  I picked up a few full sets on Ebay recently and they arrived in the mail yesterday.  I spent a little over $400, but landed the full set of 9 from waves 3 and 5.  I have most of these, but the group buy nets me:
- VC Jawa,
- Blue Snaggletooth,
- Ponda Baba.

I also have two full basic sets & common chases to recoup some of my money along with a really nice looking Logray.  Only about 9 more Kubes to go (excluding deluxe of course  :-\).

Congratulations Justin!  I was watching that Series 3 auction and had the same intention as you (buy the set for the one figure I needed).  Glad I didn't get into a bidding war with you, and the price you paid for that Series with the 3 chases was really good.  Good luck with the additional sales...

Actually, I wasn't going to be around, so I put in $205 about 4 hours beforehand.  I was shocked to get back later that night and find that I won it!  Very glad you decided not to bid as well.   ;)

Nice score on the Tion - that is one I still need as well.

I've got lots of extras Mike - get 'em before they're gone!

Speaking of which, anyone need a Logray?  I have a spare Logray (legit), along with complete 7pc sets of Series 3 (includes Carbonite Han Chase) and Series 5 (includes Han Endor Chase).  Any interested parties can shoot me a PM, otherwise I'll start posting offers elsewhere or resort to the Bay.

Got my Star Wars Deluxe Wave 1 Box this week.  Definitely liking Bib and Amanaman, but wish that they had blasters or staffs included.   :-\  The rest of the figures are cool, but not overly exciting if you already have alternate versions.  I was happy to see that Chewie is not a straight repaint of prior releases.  Jabba is very cool and a definite must have.

Speaking of must haves, I completed my LOST Kubrick collection recently.  If you are a fan of LOST & Kubricks, you need these.  I was on the fence about them for a long time, but they are really amazing likenesses of the figures and extremely well done.  Take a lookskie:

Desmond and Ben are the rare chases - I nabbed Des and 4 others for $120 on KN, picked up the other three via Ebay for about $20.  I'm okay excluding Ben from the rest of the castaways, though I might grab him someday if I can find him on the cheap.

General Veers
Old Anakin Skywalker
Tion Medon
Shaak Ti
Saesee Tiin
General Grievous (4-arms).

I already have two of those - Shaak Ti and Saesee Tiin so if anyone is intereste in acquiring those two, send me a PM and we can discuss.  The other four will make happy editions to my collection.

Only recently got back into Kubricks after the prequel waves. Love the new DX series, but really can never afford to be a completist with these. Can't even really afford the full regular 6 from this wave, but managed to pick up the 4 regulars pretty cheap on the bay... And found a use for half an AT-ST  ;)

Cheers, yeah a 400% would be insanly amazing- especially if they included his head hunter staff, the one thing the 100% is missing.
Casually picked up the cheap figs in this wave thinking I wouldn't be too fussed about tracking down the whole lot... I must have forgotten the addictiveness of the kubs  ;D
Found Amanaman in a french online store- bizzarely they had sold out of all the regular figs but had him left  :o

I know its off topic but as a fan of photography, I'd love to know your set-up to get these stunning Macro shots.
Thanks- its pretty low-tech actually! My shots are lit with a torch app on my iPod touch, and taken on a long exposure. Can really play round with the lighting as its so portable, and the long exposure makes the colours and detail really pop. Backdrop is just a plain white piece of A4 paper.
Started using the set-up when I was taking some Lego shots and liked how the results came out- loads more up on my flickr page  :)

Received the carded Silver Vader I ordered many moons ago. My dilemma: So far I've opened all my carded kubs, but for some reason it seems extra foolish to open Vader. Maybe because he doesn't fit into any particular "scene", whereas Spirit Yoda was begging to be opened and placed next to his fellow ghost pals.

Ehh, I'll probably open Vader anyway. Anyone else open theirs?

I've opened all my figures EXCEPT the Rebo Band, Uzay Blue Trooper, and the Silver Vader.  I just really like how the Silver Vader looks carded and same for the Uzay.  It doesn't help that they are on minty mint cards.  The Rebo set I will open as soon as I can figure out an acrylic box to display them in.  I say keep your Vader carded in an oscar case unless you don't have space.
Title: Re: Recent Acquisitions
Post by: MikeT on February 11, 2011, 05:42 PM
Hmm, you both make good points. Looks great alongside other Vaders loose, but it's also nice carded. Blue stars was the hardest one for me to open, but ultimately I wanted to put him in my little Hoth display, so I did. I think I'll leave Vader carded for now, just in case.
Title: Re: Recent Acquisitions
Post by: Sir Real on February 11, 2011, 06:58 PM
That's the best decision then.  If you're not absolutely sure you want to open it, you're correct to not.  Or, you could do what I did with the carded Indiana Jones kub, and get two; one to open, the other to leave on the card.  It's the only card I really liked.  (Plus, I got lucky with a low winning bid on a Japanese auction to get the second one.)

It's $100 off the going rate, the last time any popped up on Ebay and that's been a while.  They sure seem sparse.

Very cool 'gift' Jayson!  I too received a vinyl Jawa, but I had to pay for mine.  Other than the two ridiculously overpriced Deluxe Series 2 chases, I'm all caught up on Kubrick chase figures.  I also bought the first carded Vader figure and the carded Carbonite Han figures from a seller on ebay.  So I'm only a few carded figures away from the complete set as well.  This is all just in time for Deluxe Series 3 figures to be released and I'm sure another carded 'Series' offering from Medicom.  Considering we've been given the three Series 4 chase figures as re-releases recently, I wouldn't be surprised at all if we get Series 4 as carded figures this summer...

My 04 PARCO Sandtrooper arrived in the mail today. It was one of the last carded Kubs on my want list. I got him for $140 shipped in an Oscar case.  Now just have to wait for a good price on a Blue Stars.

Was finally able to track down a Blue Stars Snowtrooper.  Been wanting one of those for a while now.  Was also able to secure both the DX3 Owen Lars chase and the background piece.  Now it's just down to Hammerhead.

Good Luck I am Sith. I've resigned myself to not being a completist. I was going good until DX2 but with the prices today I'm most likely just focusing on the series. I'm even getting away from the carded ones too.

Congrats Mike!  Do you have the other background pieces as well?  I think they are cool, but have no room to display them. 

I landed an Uzay as well - not sure why they are coming out of hiding after all this time.  I have a spare for trade or would probably sell minty for $150 if anyone is interested.

Speaking of the Bay, I just found a set of all 9 Harry Potter Kubricks for $99 and Free shipping on Ebay.  This includes the basic set of 7, as well as the S. Black and Draco chase figures.  I already have the basic set of 7, but couldn't pass up the chance to get the chases too.

Anyone want a basic set of 7 unopened for $45?  Includes Harry, Hermione, Ron, Hagrid, Dumbledore, Voldemort, and Snape)

Ended up winning another Yahoo Japan auction for the three 15th Anniversary carded figures.  Final price including shipping was $164 for the three pack.  I didn't think it was that bad considering I haven't seen the Ben go for less than that on his own.

Down to needing only 2 individual carded figures (Jorg and last year's Anakin) and the Series 3 set.

That's definitely a first coming from you Jeff!  I've spent the last several years envying your collection for sure...  As I've told BrentS a lot recently, Kubricks are the only line I collect now, so it's been easy for me to keep up with things.  I really only a few bricks away from the full SW collection.  With the exception of the DX2&3 chases, I was all caught up on the 'Series' releases.  Only need the last two boxed sets (droids be@rs and Han/Luke Stormies) and a couple 400% figures...

'Almost there...'

I think they're probably the same. The carded one has his rocket removed and displayed in the bubble--not sure if the original one was removable or not. At least you got the official "vintage" J-Slop. ;D

Are you looking to have both a carded and loose Jorg or trying to swap out carded for loose?  I've been looking for him and would likely open him, so maybe we can work something out when you get a carded one...

It was Honorius and considering he hasn't sold that box set for years you'd think he'd be happy he got some money at last. It was $229 +$32 but he wanted $329 +$32 based on what he re-listed it as. Clearly $100 greed dollars are more important than actual dollars.

Yeah, that guy is a pill.  I have tried to work with him on some of his ridiculously priced stuff over the years and he won't even come close to what fair market from other auctions is.  He must get some suckers who have lots of money to spare - I don't see how he ends up selling anything. 

I wonder if you can file a complaint with Ebay?  They have a three strikes rule for stuff like that I think .  Maybe he'd reconsider if cancelling on you was going to hurt his ability to sell at all...?

Well this is the email reply I sent him before reading your post.

"I'm very disappointed but as there is nothing I can do to stop you other than complaining to Ebay I'll accept the refund. However may I remind you that you've failed for years to sell it at the higher price so maybe you should think about selling it at the lower price. That is if you actually want to make some money."


The only other kubrick related item I would have bought from him was the carded spirit yoda and that sold the other day so I may remove him from my ebay searches.

Pretty good Kubrick day for me...

Got my "J-SLOP" in the mail today.  Nice tight figure in minty condition.  No blaster, but I dug out a spare vintage Fett and viola, Fett is armed and dangerous.  As an added bonus, he included a second regular vintage Fett.  I know there were two in the auction picture, but I thought the basic one was just for comparison.  Now I have two spare basic vintage Fetts with no blasters.   :P

I also snagged a DX3 Owen Chase from an Ebay seller today.  Obviously don't have it yet, but nice to cross this guy off my want list, especially with so few auctions of him showing up these days.  Ended up costing me $190 shipped, which was a few bucks more than I was hoping, but oh well.

And if that wasn't enough, while I was putting away my J-slot Fett, I noticed something peculiar in my display case....a loose Pilot Sacul!  I seriously can't remember ever buying this and have been trying to land one for the better part of a year.  Woohoo!  For now, my happiness over finding out I have one is slightly stronger than my fear that I'm going senile at age 37.  Wait, what was I talking about...?

Well after my 2007 boxset fiasco the other week (and some carded kub stuff) I've managed to get Droids C-3PO, 2-1B and the B-Wing Pilot (I already have the Luke and backpack Yoda and would have given him to a buddy had I got the full boxset). So that just leaves the Snowtrooper who has lost most of his value since DX2.

Also in the post was a Sirius Black chase from the Harry Potter series.

So all in all a good day for me :)

Congrats on the Owen chase JediJman ;) but seriously create a database/spreadsheet of your kubs! You forgot you had a sarcul?????  :o
Title: Re: Recent Acquisitions
Post by: JediJman on September 8, 2011, 08:39 AM
Yes, I seriously forgot I had him.  Can't believe it.  I have a spreadsheet, though I need to get it up to date.  I checked though and I have Sacul listed on there - wish I also included the date that I added things, so I could look up how drunk I must have been to forget about it.

Nice scores yourself!  How did you get the lone 21B?  Did you make an offer for the one that was up on Ebay?  I think it was listed at like $200, so hopefully you got it for much less!  I don't have the little accessory for mine, so I've been itching to get a new one. 

I have a spare Snowtrooper if you want one.  $15 shipped if you're in the U.S.

A UK seller had them and I got all 3 for less than $200 I think (not checked £/$ conversion). Also I'm in the UK to answer you question but seriously you would sell a snowtrooper for $15 to a U.S. resident? You did realise I was talking about the 2007 boxset version right? I mean sure he's lost some value but that's cheap!

I also got Ponda Baba a few weeks back and checked off the Holy Grail of all kubs for me personally.

Anyway my personal Holy Grail Kubricks are now

Logray
Y-Wing Pilot

and my Holy Grail Kubricks picked by Indiana Jones are now

AT-ST Driver
Hammerhead

My Holy Grail Kubricks picked by Elsa Schneider are now

Luke Stormtrooper (yes yes yes there is the two pack but I still want him)

Picked up a Holiday Special Fett, the only non-chase/ limited kub I was missing. Since I bought the Droids and vintage versions before my complete-ist aspirations set in, I had to get the rest of the Fett's piecemeal. It was pretty fun to track them all down from far-flung locations, but I shudder to think how much I could've saved if I had just bought the set.   ::)

This was a must-have for me too, but I did have a minor gripe: For some reason, they used a shade of grey for the hair that's almost the exact value/tone as his skin color. It makes his facial hair and eyebrows invisible! They accurately show this on the card art Ben, so I guess it's intentional. What's odd is that the whites of the figures eyes are also grey, leading me to believe that they haphazardly switched white to grey on some template and forgot about the eyes  ::).

Yep, that was the one.  Came out to $99 with shipping, but that also included an acrylic case (according to the auction details).  If I take into consideration that an Oscar case would have cost me $20 with shipping, that means I got the figure for about $80 shipped.  I'm happy with that.

Also ended up picking up the carded GSX Indiana Jones exclusive figure (no watch though).  So now I'm only down to needing the carded Series 3 figures to complete my carded collection.

But it's nice to see someone here win them and also get a great deal.

Regarding the carded Indy this one (http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Carded-Kubrick-Medicom-Indiana-Jones-MOC-GSX-Watch-Exclusive-/220864446558?pt=UK_ToysGames_ActionFigures_ActionFigures_JN&hash=item336c8c005e) with a watch popped up in the UK a few days before the one I Am Sith won so it didn't sell because I'm sure the cheaper one got the more attention.

This is the GSX version:

And this is the Series 2 version:

And just to add the one more variation, here's the 2-pack version:

Well ****.  Hedging my bets, I had also put in a bid on another Hoth Rebel.  As luck (or lack thereof) would have it, I won that auction too.  So needless to say, I now have two Hoth Rebel chases on their way.  Anyone need one and willing to buy one of mine?  Shoot me a PM and hopefully we can work something out.

Nabbed the Han/Luke 2pack for $35 shipped, a pair of TC-14s for $85 shipped, and a Holo Yoda + Vac Metal Threepiofor $180 shipped.  That last one bit a little bit, but when the Kubrick bug bites, it's hard to stop.

Got my R2-Q5 from Yahoo Japan the other day to finish off Wave 4.   8)  ;D  :-[  Still not sure he was worth the money (okay, he wasn't), but you can easily tell him apart from the Box Set version.  The finish is more Matte on "2-Legs" (even more dramatic in person) and the copyright is on the undercarriage vs. printing on the bottom of his third leg stem.  The foot cables are a little more detailed on 3-Legs as well.  If you have the Box Set version, you're not missing anything with 2-Legs IMO.

Here's a comparison shot of the R2s (sorry, no Droids R2...yet!).  The Vac Metal is not nearly as critical on the astromech vs. Threepio or TC.

Picked up the R2-Q5 from Yahoo! Japan.  Although the auction ended for less than I was hoping to spend on the figure, the shipping and fees from Celga will probably end up costing me more than I wanted to spend...

I was also able to work out an arrangement with a Japanese co-worker to get the 400% Teebo, 400% TC-14 and R2-D2/C-3PO B@earbrick 2-pack from the Project 1/6 Store.  I won't get these for a while, but she saved me over $100 on fees and shipping by picking these up for me.

Thanks! I got the Imp. Commander for about $250. More than I wanted to pay, but less than I've seen it for sale anywhere.

On everything besides that, I'd say prices have cooled a bit, at least for the time being. Kinda hard to tell, because the only DX4 chases or full sets I've seen listed on ebay have been priced so outrageously high ($900+ full set,  $500 lackey, almost $400 for r2) that no one would ever buy them.  My R2-Q5 sold for a little over $150, which I think is a very fair price.



Title: Re: Recent Acquisitions
Post by: JediJman on May 30, 2012, 07:31 PM
$250 is a good price for that figure.  I know others weren't as happy with him, but I like the generic Imp Officer.  R2Q5 for $150 is a pretty nice deal too.

Title: Re: Recent Acquisitions

First I had to register with the site then selected the Maul. I took EMS shipping which you have no idea the cost as of yet. Once the order was complete, an email was sent out.

Quote
We will inform you the availability of the ordered item(s) and
its grand total include shipping and handling within 3 days. If you
do not receive any reply within 3 days, please contact us.

2 days later I received another email to proceed with the payment (link in email) & it also included the shipping cost of $15. Once paid I received the Paypal payment sent email & another email was sent when it was shipped with tracking. Nice & easy.  :)

I had a few ebay bucks, and went a bit overboard. Sometime next week I should get carded ESB vader and TIE pilot, Royal Guard, and the box set with padme etc.

With no news coming from medicom, I just had to get something. What a bleak time between Hasbro and medicom. If it wasn't for lego, I would have thought everyone had abandoned Star Wars as a retail property-

I think the difference you are looking for Brent is that the Series 7 Biker Scout has clean legs and the speederbike set Biker Scout has the dirty legs.  I don't remember there being a clean legs speedbike set scout.  But I could be wrong...

That seems like a pretty nice deal to me- way to go!

The rest of the armor on the Speederbike Scout also appears to have some battle wear, versus the ultra clean basic figure.

There is a green tinted spot or wash on nearly all the white armor pieces- faint on the chest, helmet, back and shoulders. Darker by the wrists and codpiece. The kneescaps even have brown painted streaks. The shoes look muddy, but of course they didn't do it to the holster so it is bright white against the brownish leg.

The carded figures ran $30-35 each shipped, so I think they have been dropping some (although there aren't alot of opportunities to get them).

While I think the chances of Medicom making a carded Death Sqaud commander are about zero, they are so close to having the original 12 carded I wanted to have the others just in case. All they need to do is DSC and a regular leia. While some aren't the SW card (C-3PO, and I like the vintage-esque Vader even if he is on the ESB card), it is a good looking group of figures.

I would prefer to see the dx3 tusken on the card instead of the series 2 verson, but I can live with it.

Hey everyone. Haven't posted in a while, but I've been checking in and keeping tabs on Medicom's latest offerings. Pretty disappointing stuff, although if you're a carded collector I guess they're not too shabby. Hopefully they're just trying to keep the ball rolling until they're able to do a new wave of kubs...Maybe to coincide with the release of Episode 7??

I won an auction for the DX1 Boba Fett ROTJ chase, which was pretty much the last tough to get chase I needed...my collection is almost complete! **Emperor laugh**

There's a bit of a theme happening here in the last few posts, I just BIN'ed the Limited Edition 2007 Box Set (http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/151076844826?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1439.l2649) for $200 USD. Of course it had to happen right after the Aussie dollar takes a slide.

It's been that holy grail piece for a while and with there not being any other kubrick action I can afford to splash out $200. The 2008 and 2009 box sets have been going for some 'reasonable' prices comparative to what they used to sell for.

One small problem this purchase has created is I already own the Droids C-3PO and A-Wing Pilot that I purchased loose back in the day for about $40 each. I'm not in any hurry to get rid of them but if someone wants them let me know.

Apart from a few uber rare and expensive chases that I'll never own I think that's it for Star Wars kubricks.

Hammerhead
Uncle Owen
Rebel Commander
Imperial Commander
At St Driver

Don't forget the amputee R2-Q5!

Every chase since DX1 has been like this. I would guess that you are right, they were probably much smaller runs. What surprises me is that the basic series go very cheaply, especially considering what a box costed! It seems like the lower run should have the basic figures floating higher too. So maybe the demand is simply that much lower, and that is why they aren't doing baic series at the moment.

With the exception of some of these rare dx chases, prices are as low as I have ever seen them for the earlier series. I used to pay an average of probably $18 or so for stormtroopers when I was amassing my troops. Now they go for $12 or so, when you can find them. A full set of series 5, 6 or 7 might only get $25-30. I used to pay $20 just for an extra gammorrean.

no, I gave up that aspiration, as some that are or were quite expensive weren't all that appealing to me. Especially with the carded realm getting much larger, and not offering much new. I haven't updated my spreadsheet in a while, but I would guess I am at least 10-12 short of the full loose collection.

The first 3 I sold my carded versions a while back, and if I find them loose someday, great. The last 3 I still have carded.

You motivated me to catch up on my missing inventory-
Uzay blue trooper

If your interested Dan, I have a Uzay blue trooper for sale which is still unopened from the card. The reason I want to sell it, is because the carded packaging is creased when by mistake I put something on top of it which damaged the carded packaging

I am on a lookout for a replacement

Woot woot... Picked up Imperial Commander Chase for 248.00. A little high for me but much better than 500-600 asking price. Couldnt pass up on it.

Finally filled the Owen Lars gap. $350 on the bay. It had been at 400 something, and he dropped the hammerhead to 280, but I was afraid Owen wouldn't last for the next sale price and bit. Now he can hang out with floppy hat luke by the Sandcrawler.  ;D

Wow!  Those later chases have really held their value (unfortunately!).  Nice grab though - finding these at any price is getting harder and harder nowadays.

Jesus, I don't know if I would have pounced on it but at that price I would have given it serious consideration. I think it was on ebay all of 1 1/2 hours.

No apology necessary, but sometimes I worry about jinxing myself posting about a purchase before it arrives  ;)

the AT-ST driver showed up today, between him and Owen that is the most I have spent on Star Wars toys in a very long time. I'll have some ebay bucks to burn in April...

Picked up Yak Face again... this is probably the third or fourth time I've added him back into the collection. This time he's still in his clear cellophane bag so I think I'll keep him there.

picked up a sealed box of dx4 at bbts for $151. Just felt like opening up some kubricks, and who knows, maybe there will be a chase?

I saw a vinyl jawa on the bay with a BIN of $100, and he is open to offers. If anyone is thinking of filling that gap, it isn't a bad price range-

I confess I've been going back through the kubrick threads reminiscing. It probably led to the box purchase.  :-\

Over the weekend I picked up a few ebay scores.

I had an old ebay 'followed search' for R-3PO and one popped up for £6.99 + shipping. I've already got one from DX 2 but because it is a 1:12 I though why not, it's pretty cheap and it's one of my favourite kubricks.

I looked to see what else the seller had in the way of kubricks to combine shipping and they also had both A and B Cantina band members with instruments as a pair for £9.99 and the white pauldron sandtrooper chase from the same series for £7.99. I never made these particular kubricks my priority in the past because they can get a little bit pricey and are a bit harder to come by but at this price I pounced.

In USD terms:

R-3PO = $11.10
Sandtrooper = $12.70
Cantina Band = $15.90

Plus about £8 shipping. They seller is a UK comic dealer and may not normally deal in kubricks and hence not know prices and rarity.

That or the market price is dropping after several years with nothing new and waning collector interest. 

Either way, nice scores on some of the harder to find figs.

After not having bought a Kubrick in years, I've been on a bit of a spree lately.  Some of the guys on here helped me get some of my stuff back in the day, so I figured I would update.  Acquired all of the commons for series 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 and 9 in the past couple of months, as well as Aurra Sing, Yak Face, Blue Snaggle Tooth, Shaak Tii & Old Anakin.  That brings me up to a complete set of commons for series 1-10, along with those chases.  Will now be chasing down the secrets and eventually move into the DX lines and other boxsets.  It has been a slow burn, but the bottoming out of price on these has helped expedite the process.  Now just for the even less available ones.  Ha.  Cheers!

Also, a big thanks to Spookedhippie for some recent deals that enabled me to move along with the collection.  It was much appreciated.

Met up with a friend who had just returned to the States after a three month rotation in Japan for his job.  While he was there I asked if he could find some of the remaining 'bricks I needed.  Although he wasn't able to find the ones I was looking for, he did manage to find the Medicom store so he bought me what they had in stock - General Grievous, Darth Vader, DX Luke, the Boba Fett Collection figures and the carded Emperor's Royal Guard.  No chase figures to report (didn't think there would be), but pretty cool to open up some Kubricks again!

Your post just reminds me how bummed I am that we didn't get a TFA series.  Would have been so perfect: Basic 6 = Finn, Rey, Poe, BB-8, FO Stormie, Kylo; Chases = Han (Rey box) and 'Ben' (Kylo Box); Super-Rare Chase = Phasma (FO Stormie box)

*sigh*  :(

You'd probably swap Phasma with an Stormtrooper with Phasma being a chase.

My son was sitting at our island this morning looking at the Boba Fett figures and he said, 'Dad, why didn't they make any TFA figures?  It would be really cool to have a Kylo Ren!'

Do you hear that Medicom, my 11 year old wants a Kylo Ren figure (and maybe his father too)!

Those are some solid prices, especially on the rebel commander.  I've seen most of the others upwards of $400, so you have some bargains there despite the high ticket prices.

Anybody know what a "fair" price on an AT-ST would be?
Title: Re: Recent Acquisitions
Post by: Qui-Gon Jim on June 23, 2016, 08:48 AM
Speaking of AT-ST's...

My son's room is decorated in Star Wars.  I purged a bunch of the collection many years ago, but many of my most favorite items are in his room.  I am a SUCKER for the neo-vintage look, especially when it is a toy that I had as a kid, so there is a lot of that in there.

I had the K-Mart Endor AT-ST on a shelf in his room.  Two mornings ago, he came in and woke me and told me he wanted to open a toy.  I told him not to open anything and to go back to sleep.  About ten minutes later I heard a bunch of commotion from his room.  I went in and he was trying to put the AT-ST together.  He DESTROYED the box in the process.  All I could do was laugh, and put it together for him.  These are his toys now so if he wants to open them I guess the OCD collector in me has to go with the flow.

The thing looks awesome but it is a **** toy compared to what we had when we were little.  Lots of futzing to get it to stand.  I am surprises no one has released a more properly sized set of feet for this.

I have a question. I want to buy the BOBA Fett L switch prototype chase figure. There is one listed but out of wrapper. I am worried it's the carded version just opened up. Is there a marking or year or what stamped on the leg to know which is what?
