Kubricks / Re: Attack of the Kubricks!

Hmmmm.. I thought my ears were burning.   ;D

Yes, I bought that Parco Sacul, went through that unfortunate business with Andy Tong, and have been collecting Kubricks way before the Star Wars stuff happened.

I'm sorry that I haven't been here before, because in a day of very vile and hatefull commentary on message boards I ran across respect for a fellow collector and  some caution before the flaming.  Credit to this board and it's moderators.   ;)

Not to defend my purchase, but want to share my mindset.  I've collected Kubricks for a loooong time.  I've used friends with Japanese relatives, Ebay, and retailers.  I haven't purchased any previous Parco exclusives as they were esentially the same as the regular release with a huuuuge price tag.  I don't know what it was but I said "Oh, hell yes!" on this one.  There is another on the Yahoo Japan auctions that is now about $250 so I think I look less like a tard.

My Miditoylarians were tingling on this one... from someone who made his own Han Stormie chase rather than buy one, I hope I'm wrong and Jorg Sacul's all around!

So, is the Biker Scout and Black Hole Stormie heading for the collector club?  Not as bad as the Parco give a ways but still a bitch.  %400 Vader..... best Kubrick ever!   8)

You guys rock,

GBU (tard who bought that overpriced Sacul)
