Can someone post an updated version in the other collectibles thread,  lock the thread, and make it a sticky as a reference point?Same with other Medicom offerings? 

I am trying to find images of the new chase Vader and an image of the 1st and 2nd Vinyl Fetts.  Time consuming to say the least.

Please don't bash me with see what a little searching can do etc.  This is a feedback thread and something like this would benefit all Star Wars Medicom / Kubrick Collectors that come across this site.

Actually, I've been silently working on updating the JediDefender Image Database for this very purpose.  A link to the image database will be added to the start of each Kubrick thread moving forward.

All I've had a chance to upload so far are pictures of the Star Wars Kubrick Box Sets and 6/7 of the Star Wars Carded Kubricks.

I'm currently working on Series 1-3, and we'll have photos of Series 4 to add very soon...  ;)

I'll see what I can do about adding a section for Medicom to cover things like the RAH series and the Vinyl Figures too!

But I don't necessarily have the space or funds for the volume I like to produce. 

This is what happened to me.  I sat down one day and had over 200 custom figures!  I picked my favorite 100 and sold the rest on eBay (starting at $3 each).  Some - mainly Jedi and Pilot Customs - went for a good price (able to recoup what it cost to make the figure), but the majority went for $3-5 each - no get rich quick sceme, but that's fine.  I was able to get rid of them to someone who may enjoy them instead of me just trashing them and recycling the parts into more customs.

I used the cash for fodder and RotS figures so it was the best of both worlds - I made some room on my shelf by selling a lot of my early customs (which were a lot crappier - simple head swaps and what not) and got some cash so that I would keep working on better, more advanced customs for me.

Hall of Justice / Re: DC Direct Figures
« on: July 22, 2005, 10:38 AM »
Looks like there is a Green Lantern Series 2 on the way from DC Direct as well. :)

Yeah, that was great news from SDCC!  I can probably pass on the Shark (I hate when they "re-interpret" Silver Age villians ::)) and the Manhunter as I've skipped bost of the villians (except for Sinestro). 

As for the GLs included in this wave, I'll probably pass on Guy Gardner too (unless he's in the Yellow Ring Costume) because I've got the previous "bowl-cut" version they made.  Salakk though, now that's what I'm talking about!



 ;D

I hope that 5th figure turns out to be another alien GL- Chaselon, Katma Tui, or Abin Sur maybe?   :)

Revenge of the Sith / Re: Why there are no more pictures of Bly
« on: July 22, 2005, 10:00 AM »
Oh and BTW, the fact that you were present when it happen and didn't really see it either (or did nothing to stop it) does not speak all that well about you Tydirium.  If I were you, I would keep the story in closet because it is quite embarrassing.

Huh?  I'm pretty sure Jared said he was talking to the Hasbro guy and didn't realize what had happened until after it happened. 

As he was setting up the last figures, and I was tinkering with my camera next to him, out of the corner of my eye I caught someone approach the cabinet, to the left of the Hasbro rep, but thought nothing of it – until the Hasbro rep turned suddenly, slightly confused, and immediately angry. Looking back at the case, Commander Bly, the figure farthest to the left and closest to the front of the display, was gone. Disappeared. Stolen. Right out from underneath him, someone reached in, grabbed the figure, and took off. I had noticed someone approach and leave, but didn’t know who it was, or see him swipe the figure.

I doubt there was much Jared could have done to stop it.  Unless maybe Jared has some eerie ESP powers that I'm not aware of and knew the guy walking up to the case had stealing on his mind.  ???

Nice of you to take a shot at Jared like that though...  ::)

Original Trilogy Collection / Re: Carded Wedge, finally!
« on: July 21, 2005, 11:41 PM »
Wow!   :o

What a HUUUUGE improvement this new kitbashed Wedge is over the 1997 stinker they originally pictured.

See Hasbro, THIS is how you use re-paints/rehashes to keep us Fans excited!

- Don't re-paint the Nemoidian Warrior.
- DO re-use the Dutch Vander Body with the Cinema Scene Wedge Head to give us a great new Wedge!

- Don't re-paint Shu Mai.
- DO re-use the Dutch Vander Body with a new head to give us a great new Biggs!

- Don't re-paint the Grievous Bodyguard.
- DO re-use the R4-G9 body to give us great new astromech paint schemes!

See?  It's not hard!  You're almost there!

Hey Hasbro! / Re: Wedge Antilles
« on: July 21, 2005, 11:35 PM »
Dear Hasbro,

Thank You for changing Wedge. 

Sticking us with the 1997 PotF2 Wedge at this point in the line would be a really dumb thing to do.  I am eternally grateful that you heard the voice of the fans at San Diego Comic Con and did something to make Wedge better.

That new Wedge with the Saga Dutch Vander Body is a 1000% improvement over the 1997 PotF2 Wedge or even the 1999 Cinema Scene Wedge.  Instead of begrudgingly buying my one Wedge to keep my carded collection complete, I'll now be enthusiastically ordering two and anxiously awaiting his arrival this winter!

Thank you for doing something very good.  Please don't screw it up by changing him to something different.   :)

Your Pal,
Jeff

Wow!

Check this out... Wedge is now up for pre-order at New Force Comics.

Wedge for $9.99 plus $4 shipping - plus, only $1 more in shipping for each additional Wedge you order.  2 shipped for $25, 3 Shipped for $36!

Case of 12 Wedge for $109.99 plus $9 shipping - that works out to $10 each including shipping!

I'm taking the gamble on Rick and Co and I orderd myself a case of 12 - $10 each shipped is a great price compared to what the other guys are charging ($13-$16).   ;D

To be honest, I wouldn't mind seeing them upgrade some of the figures from the POTF2 range as well.

We'll have to start a wish list of those guys too... ;D

Some people around here have already started their  PotF2 Resculpt Wish List.   ;)

Well, it seems the Asia e-tailers are all getting the Clone and Sith sets in-stock.   :o

I guess they should still be on track to get here in August!

Yet another great deal with Jesse from Saskachewan!

He gave me some money, I sent him some Kubricks and figures, everything went smoothly as always!   :)

Yeah, the extra Clone Pilot Helmet was mentioned by Hasbro at Celebration 3.  You can just barely make it out in my picture from the C3 Hasbro QnA:



Seems like a little nugget that everyone has forgotten about!

Kubricks / Series 5
« on: July 21, 2005, 12:18 AM »
Jeff. IMO what happened to you was a scam. Have you recieved any money back? I mean, if you get a Master case, you need those chases to make it worth while. I'd be asking for at least $120 for the fact that there were no chases. That is unless you got the Master Case at a discounted rate.

That's what I already told him too, Simon. I'd say he needs to be compensated close to the current market value of the 3 chase figures that were excluded (less the price of the 3 regular versions in their place). Considering the 3 chases collectively, and conservatively, go for about $240, I'd be asking for at least $200 back. >:(

Well, I did get a refund of $60 from the guy on Sunday (which I passed along to those who bought from me, it worked out to $15 off each box) and according to an e-mail I got today, the guy is going to send me his chase Luke Vader tomorrow.

I guess that helps make things a little better, on my end at least.

So:
- I got a more-than-fair price for what I got (4 boxes of Series 4)
- I sold off the extra 41 figures (I kept a set of 6 plus 1 extra Vader) so I'm not out any extra money by getting stuck with unsellable extras
- I'l end up with 1 of the 3 chases at least (but I kinda feel guilty because Jesse, Scott, and Paul missed out)

On one hand, it sucks that I didn't get what I thought I was getting, but on the other hand the guy does seem like he is trying to do right by me, first with partial refund and now at least one of the chases.

Like I said, I'll just chalk it up to a case of "buyer beware" and that will be the end of my dealings with Ryouei.   :-\

« on: July 20, 2005, 11:43 PM »
I've had quite a few trades with spacemantis - a good egg for trading or dealing, he's never let me down. 

I sold him some Kubricks and he paid me old old American cash.   :)

Thanks again Paul!
