Kubricks / Show me Your Kubes!
« on: June 24, 2005, 12:06 AM »
Since we were talking updates to our collection pictures, here's my Kubrick Case with nine empty slots ready for Series 4:

And, not to be left out, my display case with my Speederbike set and my Max Rebo Band:

No carded Kubricks (yet), but for now (until Series 4 debuts) I'm happy with my chase-less Series 1, complete Series 2 and 3, and all 4 box sets (EB Kit, Speederbike, TRU, Rebo).   ;D

It'll probably be $20 unless they pack in an exclusive Plo koon pilot that can actually fit in it.

That's what you'd figure, but with Target's current "let's charge a few bucks more because it's an exclusive" policy (Lava Vader = $13, Clone Trooper = $13), I wouldn't put it past them to hike up the cost a few ($5-10) bucks...  :-\

Is this the same ship from the CW (non-animated) line?

It is a re-hashed ship (the Episode 2 Jedi Starfighter which has already been released 3 times - Saga Red, KB Exclusive w/Pilot Obi-Wan, and Clone Wars Green) that uses the paint job from the Anakin Clone Wars Ship:

You can see from the comparison picture below that while it is very similar to stuff that has been released before, it actually "new" in that this paint job has never been used on this model ship (but it was used on a different model ship).

I was afraid that was going to happen.  When the hell is Target coming to Canada?   >:(

When Canada finally abandons Quebec and joins the USA.   ;)

I still go with the fact that this item was originally planned for the OTC/DVD run. 

So, if it would have come out last year when the rumors first popped up during the late Saga / early OTC stuff, it probably would have been a lot closer to 500.

For whatever reason (probably the RotS Vader hoopla they were expecting/planning), Hasbro decided to hold Vader over until now and as a result there is no way it is #500.   ::)

according to RS, target has it as an exclusive item!

I thought you were smarter than that, Target.   :(

Now, Target, please don't try to charge $25-30 for it too or I'll be swimming in these at the local stores for months.   :-\

Kubricks / Series 5

This was my thought too after seeing this latest wave.  Unfortunately, I'm concerned that I'm just too far behind at this point to catch up...and I'm not sure I can afford to anyways.  I'm sure as heck figuring out if I can though :)

Series 2 - Mos Eisley:
Set of 6 - $60.00

Series 3 - Ewoks and more:
Set of 6 - $48.88
Set of 7 - $62.88
Full box - $69.99

Enough to get you started... plenty of other good (cheap) things on eBay now.  ;)


I too will be ordering Master Cases when the time comes for Series 4 and 5.  I think JV08 is the only interested party in pairing up so far, still room for one or two more folks (hint hint Brian :)).

Kubricks / Series 5
« on: June 23, 2005, 11:39 AM »


Way back in December, I posted a "wish" list for series 4:

Wave 4: Return of the Jedi
1.  Darth Vader (3:12)
2.  Yoda (3:12)
3.  Slave Leia (3:12)
4.  The Emperor (1:12)
5.  Jedi Luke (1:12)
6.  Stormtrooper (1:12)

I can't believe that I am getting 3 from my wish list in Series 4 and the other 3 from my wish list in Series 5!   :o

I love Medicom!   :-*

I'll go ahead and guess a Boushh Chase for Leia and a Blue Snag chase too!   ;D

Plo Koon Jedi Starfighter - Cancelled?

"June 3 2005: This item is not available at Entertainment Earth. Entertainment Earth has not received any units of this item from Hasbro."

Does this mean it's not coming or just that EE won't be carrying it?

Maybe it's now it's going to be an exclusive someplace else?

Well, according to GH's latest QnA, it sounds like the Plo Koon Starfighter got cancelled from EE because Hasbro optioned it to someone as an exclusive.  So, it sounds like it's still coming, just not to EE.

Now the question is, which retailer was dumb enough to take a "new" RotS vehicle that is actually a repainted Episode 2 ship as an exclusive?   :P

I thought I should point out for all you "variation" hunter guys that there is currently an error on the 5-pack box.  You can see on this picture I took at C3 that it says it includes "Stormtrooper" Armor.  Oops!  :-X

No idea if they will fix it or not, but it's there for now...

Well, judging by the news on the front page and the latest infor from (and despite the fact that JesseJames and I pointed out the error to Hasbro at C3) it doesn't look like Hasbro fixed the "stormtrooper" armor on the final product packaging...

Does anyone remember when these two sets will be out?

I can't seem to find the dates again.   :-\
