Kubrick Holy Grails


Recommended Posts

I know this is sacrilege but trust y'all may just bear with me, but what're some of your Kubrick holy grails? not necessarily rare ones or even expensive ones, could be ones you missed out on or ones you always liked the look of but could never get ahold of (that now go for silly money)

- I'll start, as a kid I always wanted toys of, then noticed Kubrick provided
1) the minority report spiders
2) the T-1 (with treads and machine guns)
3) the brick camo solid snake/with crocodile head in either Toyfare or a playstation mag (perhaps both)
4) the twins in the matrix line (obviously a pair of them hehe) 

and to give this post a happy ending, I'll have you know I've gotten my hands on 2/4 of those entries! indeed, I was lucky and got a lil job lot with not one but TWO spiders as well as troubled copper John Anderton...unfortunately I am still yet to manage to assemble the spiders, the balls are far too large for the sockets (bhm inbound lol) even though I try the hot water trick

After much deliberation I have decided upon the Panzer Cop ,Jin Roh Ken Roh (version ) . it's perfect.  If you've never heard of the 'Panzer Cop' (Hellhounds legend) be warned ,once you find out about it you may well get hooked .  Incidentally that license (also referred to as Kerberos ) has my favourite 1/6 figures , there are several .

My interest in Kubricks has only ever really been when they made a figure we were missing from the Marvel Minimates line, so any 'grail' has shifted over time. 

I wanted the hoverchair Xavier in order to customise a minimate of him for a while. I was *very* excited when AoA Morph and 90's Havok came out... but eventually, DST got around to all of them. 
Because collecting and team-building is my jam, Kubricks have never been super high on my list. 

Having said that, if they ever made Phoenix or Sinister, I would probably have to add them to my collection.

Marvel kubricks that just about everybody would enjoy as Minimates are Peter Porker ,Venom Ham & Venom Punisher .  I'm not sure whether I love 'mine'  just because they are brilliantly executed or whether its because I took so long to find them ?  The Captain America kubrick is perhaps my favourite Marvel kubrick.

Metal Gear Solid is a favourite as well . There are some pretty stunning Snake versions ,especially the promotional versions, beautifully painted .

Oh my giddy aunt bam you weren't kidding with that warning! much like many entries on my list, I always thought the Helghast from killzone, a game of my youth, would make fantastic toys and these panzercops were perhaps a major inspiration in their design (outside the obvious common ancestor) thank you as ever on that scoop!

Also very glad for the additional write-up on those Marvel chases my friend, many here mightn't know those strange lil entries and a very salient point on how the thrill of the hunt can be a big influence of one's enjoyment of the feast, so to speak :)

I love the morph Kubrick (wound up with him by chance) and had no idea DST had now caught up there, must check him out...one of my favourite things is the Kubrick and mate of the same thing side by side, having them duke it out etc I hope the hover chair was a decent fit while you needed it...I have a Xavier Kubrick and the early AFX wheelchair Xavier you've now inspired me to combine!
