Does any one have any places that they have purchased sets from for a "reasonable" price. I really do not want to deal with ebay on this one because most sellers are in Japan. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Hey evenflow,
you could try these guys. It's probably the cheapest you'll find on the 'net in the US, and Bigbadtoystore comes highly reccomended.

There is someone on the JediDefender forums (He's No good To Me Dead (http://www.jedidefender.com/yabbse/index.php?board=12;action=viewprofile;user=knunt)) who runs his own store, he can get you stuff at cost sometimes, shipping is still usually high though since he's in Japan, he was able to get me an Early Bird set and has hooked us all up for Luke and Leia Speeder Bike Sets

Nice! BigBadToyStore is having a sale until Sunday.

SW kubricks wave 2 (set of 6 standard figures) has been dropped to $29.99. Thats the cheapest I've seen them, so I folded and ordered a set.

Also scored a loose vintage Jabbas Dias from them for $5 to go with the ultra Jabba. I'm very stoked about that!!! :D

Anybody still lookin for the kubricks should check 'em out! They also have single figures.

I have the Bounty Hunter set, and I think they are very sharp figures. I wih the Lego characters were that cool, but then I guess they wouldn't be Lego's.

evenflow
03-23-2004, 03:42 PM
I really love these figures. I am pretty much finally caught up. I got my series 1, just ordered series 2 from bidbadtoystore, got wicket, an early bird kit, and just picked up an indiana jones. I am pumped. I can't wait for more of these little guys to come out. Is there any info on whose next after the Speeder Bike Wave?

Reefer Shark
03-24-2004, 01:09 AM
There's a wicket kubrick?!? No kidding, I'd love to see a pic of that.

I thought I had heard that there were Speeder bikes w/Luke & Leia already released, and exclusive to Japan. Is there any truth to this?? I haven't been able to find any official reports or pics of them.

Well that website was helpful but very evil. Now I want the carded Luke and the other 2 Boba Fetts. I am already trying to save up for the Droids R2-D2. I guess I will have to save up some more.

Reefer Shark
03-25-2004, 01:14 PM
Hey thanks for that link OCB!

The speeder looks great, hopefully it wont cost an arm and a leg to get one....

That wicket looks lame to me. It's a bearbrick, so I'm not gonna consider it a part of this line anyways. The carded Fett, Luke, and R2 look great too, but $$$ = ouch! Same goes for the early bird set = ouch! I'll probably never own these.

Ah well, I'm happy just to have the bounty hunters. Those really are the best ones IMO.

Is there any place to get the speeder set for cheaper than it is on ebay?

Reefer Shark
04-26-2004, 11:51 PM
Jeez... I really hope there's a cheaper place..

I just took a look on ebay, and what I saw was a sad thing... $75 average price = ouch! Well, looks like I won't be able to get this one (just like the early bird & single carded figures). Bummer... I really wanted this set too.

I say go for the Early Bird set, very nice item. I have not picked up the Chase Fetts or Carded Luke Yet. I am working on the Droids R2-D2, but it is not an easy task. Ebay is a bit too expensive.

04-27-2004, 11:58 AM
I,too, am interested in the Kubricks only because of their uniqueness. The cheapest I've seen the r2-d2 online was 168.00. I can't remember the seller, but I do remember it was buy it now.

I made some $$$ over the weekend, so I finally got that earlybird set. Can't wait to see how it is. I also purchased the rotj Fett.
I've seen an even rarer fett turning up with the red & yellow guantlets. Anyone got their hands on that one?

evenflow
05-19-2004, 08:19 AM
No chase Fett's for me yet or the carded Luke. I am in the process of acquiring the Droids R2-D2. Other than that I am caught up and love these little guys. I can't wait for the announcement of Wave 3.

Just in case anyone is curious I got my Droids R2-D2 and it rocks. I love the artowrk on the card. The cartoon version of 3PO is cool, can we say next exclusive?

Well if anyone is looking to get into Kubricks and has the money to spend, there is a huge set on ebay. It pretty much has everything.

Turbowars
06-05-2004, 08:34 PM
I think these are kind of cool. I have only 2, Fett and IG-88. Maybe if they were easier to get, I would have more. I see these at some Comic stores and they want $10-$12 bucks per figure and I think that's a joke for a inferior action figure. This BS about unmarked boxes is ridiculous also. Aw it's just as well, I can't really get involved in an other line anyways. I need to get rid of the stuff I do have.

How much do the Japanese pay for these things anway? Can't be too much. They sure are socking it to us Americans though. :rolleyes:

Wow! series 3 looks to be good -- and expensive. I've got the luke & leia endor on the way, then I'll be complete since I'm not getting the carded figures.
Has anyone seen the 3rd version of fett with the red & yellow gauntlets (same as the carded version)? I saw one on ebay several weeks ago where it was reportedly 1/289 or something whereas the 2nd version is like 1/80ish.
Anyone know if the black pauldron sandtrooper will be released in a regular box? I wouldn't want to pay for the carded figure just to open it.

evenflow
07-07-2004, 04:16 PM
The new box may be th eexpensive one. I am waiting on word of who the chase figures will be from this wave and if the Han Carbonite actually comes with a different Han figure. It not I guess that why they chose Bespin Han.

Turambar
07-07-2004, 10:45 PM
Yeah, I was trying to guess what the chase figs would be, too. A different ewok, maybe? The han carbo figure or han bespin? difficult to say with this wave.
I sure hope the black pauldron sandtrooper will be released to the masses, too.

Samuel Windu
07-11-2004, 12:04 PM
They are not expensives.Just 819 Yen each.

09-06-2004, 08:25 AM
The Droids Boba Fett is out fo rthose interested. They will probably drop in price once the remaining ones are relased, but I scored mine for 100.00 so i am happy with that.

I guess that is only available at TRU's in Japan? Bummer. off to ebay, again. The set looks great, though! My Kubricks collection is getting much larger than I was expecting.

I dont mind the Greedo wannabe Dodo. He is just a little bonus. It also gives me hope that they will make the res tof the band members since they included him. I am also hoping for Jabba the Hutt somehow and Yarna Da'l Gargan.

Hi guys, Well i'm a very happy colletor today as i've just got myself the sandtrooper (black pauldron) carded kubrick. I must be nuts cos i paid 183 which roughfly amonts to $342.

Good grief! It seems like there's a new set every week. Somebody over seas is getting rich off us collectors. They don't know the power of the dark side. . . I must buy these tiny pieces of plastic.
Series 4 sounds awesome!
Anyone forked over the almost $200 for the rebo band yet?
With the 12" medicom line beginning, now, and sideshow statues forthcoming, I just can't blow my money fast enough!

sith_killer_99
02-26-2005, 08:58 AM
I only buy the basic Kubricks, no "chase" figures, "carded" figures or "boxed" sets. They just aren't worth it IMO. Sure they are cute and kina cool, but none of them are worth forking out more than $10.00 a piece for, even in their box sets.

The only thing I don't like about this line are all the "exclusives" sure they are kinda cool, but for me Kubricks will never be a high end collectable.

Turambar
03-09-2005, 09:06 AM
I saw a preorder for series 4 on ebay yesterday. It looks great. I'm hoping this will be like series 1 with only one chase figure: helmetless vader. That way I can catch up on the others.

I will finally be caught up with my kubricks once I get my logray in the mail this week. I got the rebo band a few weeks ago, and series 3 came in this week with the two other chases. I thought it was odd that 3PO is about the tallest of the kubricks.
I can't wait to see what the chases will be with series 4. They could be really boring and obvious. I'm sure we'll see a han hoth blue coat variation and a unhelmed vader. Fitting in with the previous series, that only leaves 0 to 1 more chase. It could be nothing, something else boring like a Luke dagobah, or something really cool like a royal guard or dignitary in the emperor box.

evenflow
03-30-2005, 07:18 PM
Nice on catching up. I am pretty much all caught up with Star Wars too (need the 2 Fett chase figures). I am hoping for soemthing cool like a Royal Guard. I think that it may be a safe bet that Han Hoth may have a chase and a removable helmet Vader as well.

Turambar
03-30-2005, 09:56 PM
Technically I'm still not caught up, but I won't be buying the carded figures -- I would have liked that sandtrooper, though. I also decided not to get non-movie figures (to cut down on expenses) ruling out the Dr Jones and the chase vintage-style Fett.
I'm betting the 3rd chase will be the royal guard!

evenflow
04-13-2005, 09:44 PM
Well it looks like next up for us Kubrick fans is a 400% Boba Fett limited to 1000.

The black pauldron Sandtrooper goes for serious cash, the white and orange and very affordable. It isnt cheap to collect, but if you only go for the basic figures and not the chase, its actually not too bad at all.

Did Carrie get back into her slave outfit recently to pose for this figure? :razz: It reminds me of the Lego slave Leia, no curves. You would think if they could give Yoda pointed ears, they could give Leia a slender waistline. I still like Kubricks, but I have had to cut back on my spending. :(
