There are Nicholson and Ledger Jokers. Ledger Joker sucks, though.

So I have to admit I have a few of these....Halo 3 set, a Hobgoblin which was dissected for parts(mostly his glider), a Tony the Tiger(really really wanted the Kelloggs minimates), a Prof X which may get dissected for his hover chair, a bunch of Aliens ones(thanks Sam!), some random guy that was passed along to me which I am told I have to grill BHM about who it is...all the while I pick up a random one it always amounts to the same thing...they look good in a picture but once I have one in hand its not so great.....the Aliens ones were the first glimmer of an exception....the queen varies from the typical kubrick body type so she doesnt count but the warrior was fantastic! I may have to get another one or two of that one! Then I get a package in the mail today and in it among the minimate treasures is the kubrick Havok. I love this costume of Havoks...the 90's X-Factor suit with the jacket....so visually that part is win....but there is something else...for some reason this kubrick doesn't fail in hand like the ones before it did....I cant explain it but this one looks good to me

Yeah, Kubricks can be a bit hit-or-miss. I think most of them are pretty great once you get used to them, but those Marvel ones. . .for the most part, they just aren't that great, particularly compared to the Minimates (of course). I still like them for what they are, but they certainly aren't the best figures that Medicom has produced in my opinion. The Alien, Star Wars, and Metal Gear figures have to be my favorites. Some of the Batmen are OK, some are kind of lame. The Muppets aren't as great as I would have hoped, though Kermit and Gonzo are pretty good.

The alien ones so far rank pretty high on my list.....I am glad to not have any of the star wars ones cuz that could lead to a more invested interest, the original trilogy being a childhood fave that has carried through to now.....I like my off color oscar the grouch too....I dont why this havok has struck as a nice looking one, something about it has sat it apart from all the other marvel ones which I really have little to no interest in getting

This guy was one of the reasons i started considering Kubricks. Even though the Storm, colossus, Jean Grey figures semmed to fail, the Havoc one always looked great - and it is from the era that i first started reading X-Men comics. Damn, i'd love some 90's X-Fator 'Mates. I'd even settle for a Kubrick Random figure.

BHM, I have no idea if you'd consider my post original or not, but here it is regardless. wink.gif To me, this auction seems sort of silly. I mean, he advertises in his listing that the fig is marked "not for resale," yet he's doing so anyway. That's just asking for his auction to get yanked or for him to get reported.

Makes me think of those "America's/World's Dumbest Criminals" videos that they show on TV. (Not saying that what he's doing is criminal, just dumb.)

It's all about the 'fro, baby!

"Not for resale" is printed on many Kubrick promos/give-aways & is a 'loop-hole' marketing technique which allows Medicom to produce various characters without infringing licensing arrangements. If I use the 'Fantastic Four' kubricks as an example - these were GIVEN AWAY as a promotional item at a Film Premiere or DVD release at a point in time where Medicom were perhaps not holders of the licence to SELL those Kubrick versions of the FF in Japan . The words "not for resale" attempts to cover Medicom's ass. Please excuse the caps which I'm using to emphasise the fine line being trod. Kubricks are rarely sold officially outside of Nippon.

My explanation is the best I can do without my attorney present. wink.gif

*But really I'm for anything that'll help Chuck see clearer and diversify the line even more, so that everyone will be happy. Also, I still want Inhumans even though DST said that might take take a while. Also also, I really do not understand DC's decision-making process sometimes. Also also also, the Book of Minimates needs to become a real thing. Also also also also, I'm still looking for Femme Fatales Minimates.

The Tron and Max Rebo Kubrick sets are among the few that I don't yet have, but would like to one day. The Max Rebo band is ridiculously expensive, though.
