What do you think of them.
Like'em or Hate'em, Post'em Here!

What I think: They look cool,though I don't own any.

(Since I didn't make the first Lego Topic, I used Kubrick instead.)

I hate to say it, but I am a fan of the SW Kubricks. I just wish DST made SW Minimates.

I have about 2 dozen Kubricks and about 1/3 are Star Wars. I need to pick up an Imperial Officer and Tarkin, but both seem to be rare. Vader is my favorite, but his helmet is a tad out of scale to allow for the sections.

Growing old is inevitable… growing up is optional.

i like them and would get more but:

1 they are exspensive
2 they are hard find
3 they come out with the wierdest characters

that being said I have my Boba Fett hanging with solid snake, Wash the stampede, and mass production EVA at work.

I am a leaf on the wind
Now see how I soar!

If you decide on buying some Kubricks beware ebay sellers using the term 'Full sets'. Minimate sellers try the same trick & it's a practise that sucks. I guess most of us realise that Kubricks often have Secret Chase items & these 'Full sets' that are offered invariably do not include these Secrets. That may not be a problem to you but beware of it. Always try & get the 'blind-boxes' they are packaged in as well, these are considered by many to be 'part of the collection' .......

Good advice from BHM.

I usually don't keep the boxes, but realize people like to have them. I rarely sell anyway.

I just wanted to take a moment to thank all of you for making this new Kubrick section possible. Due, in large part, to you bringing these things to my attention, I just spent nearly 100 bucks on four figures.

Well, as mentioned above, I got the Early Bird set last week (basic, episode IV figures of Luke, Leia, Chewy, and R2-D2). It actually came in on Wednesday. That is 3 business days after I ordered it. From Japan. Amazing.

Now, in addition to those I have the basic, series 2 Han Solo, the TRU exclusive medallion-wearing Luke from the end of Episode IV, the series 7 Leia and Lando in their disguises from the beginning of Jedi, and the series 5 Jedi Luke with black glove (guy who I won the Early Bird set from included it for free!). I really love these guys. I now need the other, essential figures from the "Original Trilogy," (3PO, Obi Wan, Vader, Boba Fett, regular Lando, Storm Trooper, etc.) and I might even shell out for the 400% Boba Fett at some point.

Just when I was getting a bit satisfied with my Minimate collection, these damn things had to come along. I seriously need to graduate and get myself a real job. And apart from my toys, I am such a pragmatic, conservative spender of money.

This is not healthy behavior. They are "crackbricks." And then there are those damn Alien-Kubricks I've been pining over since last year, and that 400% Alien and Jack Skellington, and the Lost Kubricks, and the upcoming Indy 2 pack, and the Rocketeer, and the Muppets, and this fucking thing, that I'm going to spend a fortune on one of these days:

They have so many great, wacky licenses like this one. They even have a Jack Nicholson Joker Kubrick from the Batman movie.

I think they look great and I collect a lot of Star Wars stuff but the only one of these that I have is Boba Fett and he is so awesome. There are lot of others I want but they are just too expensive for my taste.

I was lucky (?) enough to buy the bulk of my SW & Marvel Kubricks from a 'get out' collector & I have subsequently strived to keep the collections complete. I am currently negotiating Series 8 (9 figures),the latest carded toy fair exclusive (1 figure) & a boxed set (Speeder bike + figure).........Optimistically sad.gif $750 + shipping!

It's insane.

Oh yeah ,Series 9 has been heralded ohmy.gif

Thankfully, I don't like the new films, and I don't even feel the need to get all the original trilogy figures. Otherwise, I would most certainly be in the poorhouse. I saw that Darth Maul with his little vehicle is going for, at least, $160-170 on eBay. Seems like both of the Speeder bike sets go for $120+ as well (add 50 or 60 dollars for the one with Luke and Leia).

Yesterday morning, I saw the elusive alligator-head Naked Snake Kub on eBay going for $120 shipped, and I had the hardest time not buying it. Luckily, some other fool bought the thing after it being available for a couple of hours. Otherwise, I think, in a moment of weakness, that I would have bought the damn thing. And I used to think that $30-40 for a single Minimate was nuts.

A guy on one of the Star Wars boards posted that once you pay $100+ for one of the Kubrick variants, that future variants at similar prices are a lot easier to justify buying. How frightening is that? Seriously, crackbricks.

After much deliberation I recently secured the 2007 Mail-Away Star Wars 5 pack. I received them today but I just can't bring myself to open the box so here are a few pictures which you perhaps might like to see.Attached File  DSC02223.JPG   152.29K   51 downloadsAttached File  DSC02224.JPG   136.65K   43 downloads[attachment=2297

OK not stunning pictures but I thought you'd like to see them.

I really like that Snowtrooper. I think Medicom scans my brain to see which figures I want and then they make them the chases! I really want Tarkin and the Imperial Officer (some say its Veers). I'd also like the Snowtrooper but don't think I want the whole boxset. I'll break down and buy them eventually I guess.

That Degobah Luke makes me drool. I really admire BHM's ability to keep them contained. I would've ripped that bad boy open immediately.
