    Question What's the status of the Star Wars Kubricks?

    A few months back there was a story here about a couple of sets of Kubricks mini-figures based on Star Wars. One was a main character set the other an ESB bounty hunter set.

    Soooo, what's the story? Any news on when they will be released or how much we can expect to pay for them? I can't even find the pictures anymore, they are not in the database.

    I really am looking forward to these, I hope they haven't been cancelled.

    Dengar, IG-88, Boba Fett, Bossk, Zucukss, and 4-LOM.

    These Japanese Exclusive figures will be available in February. They will retail for 780 yen (about $7.00 each). These are sold in a closed box so you don't know which figure you are getting, like trading cards. There may be some figures not announced and we won't know until people are finding them.

    Doh!! That's what I get for ignoring the front page and coming straight to the forums.

    Thanks Jar Jar!

    These looks awesome! I want to get them all, but am not sure if I want to participate in the whole random package thing, sounds like a pain in the butt to do online. I'll just wait and order a complete set from somewhere.

    No problems, BigB. And I agree, they do look really nice, but I wonder how much they are gonna jack the prices up for us in the States to get them. I think the Bounty Hunters look alot better then the Early Bird Package though.

    Fortunately I have connections in Japan. Actually my brother does, but I am not sure how aggravating it will be for his friend to go hunting these things down if they will be randomly packaged like that. Well, the guy sent my brother all three Kotobukiya statues for free, so it couldn't hurt to ask.
