I'd call myself a dabbler, except the only one I had any interest in is Bossk from Star Wars. Now that I've finally been able to own him, I'm done. I haven't seen any others that I feel the need to own.

Surely that Bossk isn't enough. Have you seen similarly ugly Star Wars characters like these:

I got these three in the mail today, and they are awesome. Buying one Kubrick is like eating one potato chip.

OK, I forgot about Ackbar. "It's a trap!!" That's why I'd want him -- for his famous quote -- & there are no Lego minifigs of him as of yet. The first guy, Snaggletooth, was my brother's favorite figure growing up (aside from Max Rebo & his band).

Oh my goodness homestar17, this is like reading my own childhood. Snaggletooth was my top Star Wars character when I was a kid, along side the the Max Rebo Band. Very strange, very strange indeed. That is a great quote though, I say it quite often I am sad to say. "It's a trap!"

Well, if you guys have 200 bucks to spare, the Max Rebo minifigure band could be yours!

Oooh! You are such an enabler!! wink.gif As a kid, my brother got the Max Rebo band figures (the Kenner ones) but didn't like Droopy, so he gave him to me. At first I didn't like him either, but he sort of grew on me. Now he holds a special place in my action figures (cuz I still have him) & that Kub one is so cute!

Maybe one day I'll return the favor to my bro & buy the set, then give him what I don't want -- the rest of the set minus Droopy. smile.gif

Snaggletooth? Why Snaggletooth? I mean, he was there for all of, what, three seconds?

I've seen him go on eBay (on more than one occasion) for around 10-15 dollars.

The clear "camo" (never understood how something clear can be called camo over chameleon... blink.gif ) Is my fav by far in that Master Chief collection. The black is a close second, but how rare is it? My local EB Games may have it in one of those 4-packs, and if it is pretty rare, i may just have to attempt dabbling!!! biggrin.gif

I am kinda new to the whole kubrick thing. Until the Lost ones came out the only kubrick I had to this point was Yoda. But since there was so few lost merchandise out there I got a sealed box of Lost Kubricks. But I am starting to like these little guys so much. I am finding myself wanting more. I am wanting to get a Ben to complete my Lost set. And I am also really wanting to get the Universal Monster ones. I don't know how I let them all slip by me.

You are heading to a very dangerous place with this kind of talk. . .don't say I didn't warn you. I've probably spent $500+ on Kubricks since June or so sad.gif

Wow sounds like you have a nice collection. Do you have photos posted anywhere of your collection? So far I know I want the Universal Monsters and I need to order the Indiana Jones and I would like to get the Planet Of The Apes as well. But I am not going to spend to much on myself till after Christmas. biggrin.gif

When I started, I wanted the Alien and Muppets Kubs, and a few Star Wars figures. Now I've got those and a bunch of others. My collection isn't really that big, and is too embarrasingly disorganized to show here right now. I spent so much money because Kubs just get EXPENSIVE. I spent $60 on the chest-exploding Kane (from Alien), $75 or so for the Muppets, $40 for the Toy Story 3 pack, $27 for Boba Fett, $20 each for movie Batman, movie Joker, and movie Catwoman, $100 for the "Early Bird" Star Wars set (Luke, Leia, R2D2, Chewbacca), $20 for Obi Wan Kenobi, $20 for Greedo, $60 for the Lost set, $60 for the Aliens Power Loader set (a couple weeks before I found them on sale for $20 pinch.gif ). . etc etc. Actually, my $500 estimate was probably extremely low. I must have spent well over 1K.

But by no means am I the biggest Kubrick collector around, though. You want to see big collections, go to Kubrick Nation (Kubrick forum). Some of those guys are HARD CORE Kubrick collectors. Even some members here (or at least one wink.gif ) have collections that, I'm sure, mine dwarf in comparison to.

Here is an example of what I am talking about. This is a "sale" price in Kubrick-land, apparently.

I like plenty of Kubes that I've seen over the years but they're too expensive to spend money when there are other things I'm more interested in.

I own a full set a couple times over of the Universal Monsters line, though.

I bought a few Marvel Kubricks . . . i was a bit annoyed when i bought 4 Magneto's in a row. The idea of not seeing what i was getting first & ending up with 4 of the same $15 figure kinda miffed me.

So . . . anyone wanna trade for a Magneto Kubrick?
