1 with this line seemingly dead (although who knows episode 7 might reinvigorate things...) does anyone know of any good Kubrick customizers??? I'd love to finish out the original vintage line with kubes, especially given how close they came to doing this...

I have a complete collection so any pics you need let me know. This book is an excellent idea!

I can't see any differences to the DX3 version...anyone else notice any? I know the PARCO figures over the last few years have been slight variants (Ben, Anakin) so I'm surprised so see a straight up carded figure.

My Holo Maul arrived in the post this morning...I have to say I am really pleased with this one...It's certainly a step above the last two Parco exclusives (Anakin/Obi-wan)...

It's a Japanese shop called Mandarake (link below):

I bought the carded Anakin from there last year and was very happy. I bought the Maul for JPY 8,000 and as I recall there was another there for JPY 10,000.

Best of luck!

Anyone know when we are likely to get an update on this one? It feels strange having nothing on the horizon...

I had started but I lost interest really quickly. I have the first two waves as well as some of the movie figures they released (Daredevil, Fantastic Four)...The line was lacked a focus for my taste so I left it there.

My dx4 purchase arrived today. I'm happy to have them as part of my collection but overall the selection is pretty bland.

The Vader and Leia are really nice figures, as is the Tiefighter pilot. I really like the dignitary too but it's still a fairly basic figure. While I like the Antilles figure the helmet seems to sit very high on mine which makes it look as if he has a massive forehead. I'd be interested to hear if anyone else has this problem. The R2 is a complete waste of a slot...

The two chases are also uninspiring...the imperial lackey has grown on me but I still feel like they could have done more.

The probot looks amazing and has great detail but it is still my least favourite build a figure by far...

All the same, it's always good to get new star wars's hoping that DX5 raises the bar!!!

Tragically, I'm responsible for that full set.

I'm a completist at heart and even though I find the chases massively disappointing I still want them in my collection. I kicked myself for not pulling the trigger on full sets earlier on DX 2 & 3 and ended up spending more in the end...(plus my heart was broken trying to track down an Uncle Owen).

I intend selling the background card so hopefully that'll take some of the sting out of the tail of the BIN price...
