Very cool-looking, and very disturbing.

Holy shit. It looks like I will own a few kubricks after all. These look sharp.

Agreed. I think I will be picking them up for both reasons. :D

I actually like them and they suit the body shape.

Agreed, they are scrumtrulescent.

These Kubricks are like looking into the face of God, and having him say back 'You are my most wonderous creation!'

Gah! There it is -- I think Kubrick's finally hooked me!

Bernard & the chicken-thing are my favorites.

Just like Minimates, these things can put you on a slippery slope to the poorhouse. Beware, and be forewarned. . .

I will definitely get these! The trailer is amazing too. I used to say, "Oh, I'll just get a few Star Wars Kubricks." Then when KB closed, I grabbed the Halo box set for cheap. Then I found a neat set of Mazinger Z and bought that. I got the Batman box set on sale on FCBD too... The other day I was at Urban Outfitters and almost bought all the Lost Kubricks they had because they are clearanced. If they get to $1.99, I will buy, but not yet. I'm being sucked into the Kubricks vortex!!!

I still prefer minimates, but Kubricks are growing on me, especially the WTWTA set.

Really? I'm surprised by the overwhelming positive response. I don't like them. They're not block figures, they're sculpted 3" toys; strayed too far from the minimalist concept for me.

that might be what does it for me, i'm not usually a kubrick fan... having a grand total of one. I'd love these, although they're probably out my price range.

To respond to Cappy's post, I think the sculpting sometimes works very well with Kubricks. Some of the Alien, Muppet and Disney characters, for instance, just wouldn't work if they didn't have sculpted heads. However, I generally dislike the excessive sculpting on Minimates. I guess there is no rational reason for my distinction.

Yeah, guess it makes me a hypocrite that Kermit is in my Top 5 Kubricks list. So I'll rethink my position and consider the Wild Things Kubs in the "must have sculpting" category, like Muppets. :)
