Kubricks / Pepsi Nex Star Wars Be@rbrick Promo
« on: June 9, 2008, 09:38 AM »
Ugh...  good luck tracking down all 16 of these little buggers.  ::)



For those unfamiliar with the Pepsi Nex promo be@rbricks, they are free promo items included when you purchase a 500mL bottle of Pepsi Nex in Japan.  Over in the "other Kubricks" thread, evilalive has a nice pic of the last promo series, Pepsi Nex x Fox, which was based on some fox movies/shows.

These be@rs are usually 65-70% the size of the regular be@rs and they often have the clip screwed into their heads (as seen in the pic).  From what I have gathered so far, these will be included with Pepi Nex bottles sold at Celebration Japan and there will be 16 different be@rs:

- Boba Fett
- C-3PO
- Chewbacca
- Clone Trooper (Ep2)
- Clone Trooper (Ep3)
- Darth Vader
- Darth Maul
- Jango Fett
- R2-D2
- Stormtrooper
- TIE Fighter Pilot
- Jawa
- Wicket
- Yoda
- Imperial Logo
- Rebel Logo

As if I didn't already have enough stuff to waste money on this summer...  ::)

Kubricks / Medicom Toy Exhibition '08 (Parco Show)
« on: May 23, 2008, 05:12 PM »
* For the newbies, The Medicom Toy Exhibition is sort of like "Kubrick Toy Fair".  There are always exclusives (SW and non-SW) at the show.  Almost every year they've held a show, there has been some sort of carded SW Kubrick as well as a few other things for sale or order at the show...


Since Medicom has announced the dates for this year's show (6/21 - 6/30), I thought I'd get a thread rolling so we can all spend the next 30 days hoping/praying/speculating on what we'll see...  :)

So... what are you hoping to see?  Series 10?  Series 11?  A new box set?

Well of the Souls / Indy Sales, Discounts, and Deals
« on: May 18, 2008, 09:25 PM »
This week at TRU all 3.75" Indy figures (Basic and DLX) are "Buy 2, Get 1 Free".  That works out to about $5 each for the basic figs, even better than the Target coupon price!

I was able to grab 3x German Soldier 2-packs today for just $21.28 - about $3.50 per fig!  :)

1:6 Scale Figures and Collectibles / Sideshow 12" Darth Vader
« on: May 15, 2008, 11:39 PM »
You can't really see much, but I guess you can consider it confirmed...

He's more Machine now than Man…

All I can see is a silhouette behind Anakin...  I'm guessing he'll be a "big reveal" planned for SDCC'08.  ;)

Let the "lame variant of a lame animated figure" complaining begin!   :P

Celebration V: Orlando / The Celebration V Speculation Thread
« on: March 26, 2008, 11:41 AM »
Looks like rumors are aleady popping up...  from the folks at StarWarsActionNews and Rebelscum:

SWAN reports: Celebration V is very likely in 09, with Chicago the frontrunner as the venue.

Sansweet: We are hoping to do a Celebration in the U.S. next year, and we’ll be looking at Midwest locations like Chicago as well as some further east.



Speaking as a person who lives within driving distance of Chicago, that would work just fine for me. :D

Well of the Souls / Hasbro Indy Q&A Discussion
« on: March 20, 2008, 10:41 PM »
Since I don't want to sully Matt's nice Warehouse thread with discussion, I thought I'd start a separate thread.

First up - no Midnight Madness plans for Indy yet.  This kind of surprised me.  I thought the odds would be good for some kind of thing... maybe someone will wise up to that eventually and get something going.

Also this week, Hasbro passed along word that they are not planning on doing a separate dedicated Indy Q&A, but said again that we are more than welcome to keep submitting them as part of our site's three SW questions.
