I think it's pretty cool, sure it's a little silly, but no more silly than that oversized Vader VCD. I think it's worth it, just because it comes with the whole throne and all that. Not that I'd buy it, but it's notable that it's the first Jabba release since the Kenner version to give you the whole shebang.

It's a Kubrick (look at the arms, which are normal kubrick arms) and it's part of a new wave of Kubricks for Jabba's palace. Oh, and I love it! It's not for everyone of course.

Being a Kubrick collector and fan, I actually really dig these, and will get them unless they cost over $200 or so for a set. I see you guys are missing the best announced Kubs of all, though:

http://home.comcast.net/~hobbymon/SWKubs1.jpg

I've got most of the "original trilogy" figures, but the Hoth Luke and Leia were glaring omissions. Glad to finally have a chance to pick them up :rock

And this is a "BAF" AT-ST Walker. The Jaba also appears to be a BAF (possibly that Amanaman, too [or whatever he is called])

400%, shiny 3PO Kubbie in the background here.

Possibly through paying out the nose! Truthfully, it is too early to tell, but if you just want a single figure, eBay will probably be the way to go. If these are sold like typical Star Wars Kubs, most online retailers only sell them by the case. There are a few that sell individual figures, though, if you google around. You might also try the Kubrick Nation and Jedi Defender boards once they are released (Jedi Defender is the Star Wars forum that seems to have the biggest Kubrick fans, and the most informed Kubrick discussions).

icruise
06-21-2009, 10:18 PM
Yeah, nobody knows how these will be sold. But the fact that they come with build-a-figure parts implies to me that they may even be sold individually. They may or may not be blind boxed. These deluxe series ones are a totally new thing for Medicom, so it's hard to know how they will handle them.

One bummer is the cardboard dio is not available to the public, it is only for the stores to use as a display.

You can get the display, but you have to buy a "master case" of 4 boxes, which will probably run almost $700. Since there apparently will be chase figures, there is an additional incentive to buy master cases for the more insane Kubrick fans among us.

From my understanding, pretty much. Each box will have 12 figures, in the following breakdown:

2x Luke ( Jedi Knight )
3x C-3PO & Salacious Crumb
3x R2-D2 ( Jabba's Barge )
2x Chewbacca ( Boushh's Prisoner )
1x Amanaman
1x Bib Fortuna

Apparently, the basic set of 6 will yield you a Jabba, as each will come with a different Jabba piece.

So yes, you will get 4 full sets with a master case, plus a couple chases probably, and more R2s, C-3POs, and Jedi Luke's than you could ever want.

Honestly, I thought the 1 per master case diorama was a dumb idea at first, as I thought it was a gimmick to get people to buy entire cases. But I wasn't thinking about retailers (sometimes I forget that in Japan, you can walk into a store and buy Star Wars Kubs :lol ). It is something that probably doesn't cost any extra, and is a cool thing for hardcore collectors and stores to have, so in that sense, I think it is pretty neat.

I am crazy for Jabba, but not that crazy (I don't think...). I'd love the cardboard display thing, but it's not worth paying so much extra to get a master case.

I will probably have to try and get the chases, though, which is something that I don't normally do.

Well that's what a lot of people do, or at least they did when Kubricks were quite so expensive. I guess the answer is, it depends. Unfortunately, if the past is any indication, you won't even get all of the chases by buying a master case, so you'd probably still have to spend a fair amount on whatever it is that you missed. I've even heard of people getting no rare chases in a master case (I believe you usually get one rare chase and 1 or 2 common chases per master case).

It might actually work out, but it would be a fair amount of work, and depending on demand and how many people try it, you might get stuck with a bunch of stuff you can't sell.

Is anyone here interested in buying a basic set of 6 + Jabba for like $125 + shipping if I were to get a master case? That's about a $50 discount over getting a box of 12. I'm not sure I'd want to get a master case, but if I could line up some people who wanted to get them I'd be more inclined to look into the matter.

Well, that includes Jabba remember.

If you get a box of 12, you pay around $50 more but only get a bunch of extra Lukes, C-3POs, and R2s for the difference. They'll be hard to get rid of because everyone will have extras.

I pose her leaning back on her tail. Otherwise, she is just not stable and tends to fall. And one thing about Kubricks--you do not want them falling off the shelf. I love the bastards, but durable they aren't. Ask my Buzz Lightyear and Man-Bat with broken arms if you don't believe me.

I'm way more psyched about the Empire Kubricks than the Jedi ones. Not only is it the superior film, but I love the looks, and the Luke and Leia are absolutely essential looks that were previously unreleased in Kubrick form. Plus, the snow trooper guy was previously only available in a ridiculously expensive 5-pack. Regarding Han, a brown version was previously released, but short-packed (1/12), and the toy I had as a child had the blue coat. So, this is good.

Meh, I already own that anyway. :D Just kidding. Where I of course prefer ESB to ROTJ, I am more psyched about the Jedi figs. Apart from the 'mechanic' Chewie, I feel the Jedi pieces are more visually interesting.

Are these going to be blind boxes do you know or sets? Heard rumour that the Jabba is a build a figure, is that right

I tried joing a forum called Kubricknation, but my account has not been activated yet. Have you heard of it?

Not sure if they will be blind-boxed or not, honestly. Previous Star Wars releases were not, as they had a picture of the figure on the box. Jabba is the Jedi BAF, and the Walker is the Empire BAF. Chases will supposedly also be included. I am a member of Kubrick Nation, actually (in both its previous and current incarnations). But if you are interested in Star Wars Kubrick news specifically, I would suggest Jedi Defender (Star Wars forum) over KN. Those guys are insane (dare to look at their collections), but very knowledgable and helpful.

Very nice score on the auction, BTW.

Snake Eater
03-08-2010, 01:53 PM
Thanks for the infor on the sets. Apologies, I forgot they were not blind boxed like others, MGS for example. Glad to know they are single boxes though. Prefer them that way. So, regarding the BAF, will there be a piece of Jabba/Walker in each box do you think?

Any guesses on what the chases may be? Hoping for Max Rebo stuff in the Jedi set, (even though that set had previously been released)

Thanks for the info re JediDefender. I will check it out.

Thanks. I was very pleased with it as a starting point. :)

karamazov80
03-08-2010, 01:59 PM
Based on the info. that has been released thus far, it does appear that someone obtaining an unopened set of the 6 "commons" will get a BAF alongside them. But they probably won't be cheap. I wouldn't expect a previously released Kubrick as a chase, but it is possible. Honestly, their chases are so out of left field sometimes, that I wouldn't really want to guess. Plus, I'm no Star Wars expert, so I'm not even really sure who would be the most likely, thus far unreleased character from the film. Having said that, they've already released something like 20 Boba Fetts, so my money would be on another version of him :lol

Snake Eater
03-08-2010, 02:03 PM

From what I understand, each figure will have a piece of Jabba in the box. It's not entirely clear whether it will always be the same piece with the same figure, but I would imagine so.

As for the chases, I don't think there's any chance in hell that it'll be the Rebo Band, since they already released them as a pricey exclusive and that would really annoy a lot of people (such as me). I bought the Rebo Band set (http://mightyjabba.wordpress.com/2010/02/10/max-rebo-band-kubricks/) a little while ago in anticipation of the Jabba wave's release. Max Rebo's piano would also be way too big to include as a chase.

I'm hoping for an Oola, and maybe a Rancor Keeper. Aside from that, any of the Jabba's Palace aliens would be fine.

As I posted before, I also think this is unlikely (unless there is some reason to do repaints of the original releases), but not because Medicom cares about pissing off people who bought rare/exclusive items in the past.

I saw that. If you try and figure how much those figures would cost separately, it might not be a bad deal. However, it's missing wave 4 (the most popular wave), as well as several more desirable figures (say, from the early bird set or wave 3) that might make that a more appealing price. Series 1 and 2 are the real selling points there, but the rest of the figures are, for the most part, pretty cheap and easy to find.

I don't think Medicom has ever re-released exactly the same Kubrick, but there have been some cases where they've released two that are practically the same (i.e. so close that many people wouldn't really care about the differences). The new R2-D2, for example, is different from the original one in the early-bird set because it only has two legs. The C-3PO is a different color from the first one. And the Indiana Jones chase figure is also slightly different in color (and maybe some details?) from the Indiana Jones that came with the bearbrick idol.

But I think the Rebo Band is a bit of a different case, since it was released as an exclusive, standalone product. In any case, as I said above I think the band isn't a practical choice for reasons of size.

I've been a big Kubrick fan for years now. I lost interest in the SW line when they went PT. Now that they are back to the OT I'm really tempted but financially just can't afford it anymore. The little buggers drain wallets FAST! I'm just going to stick with my 400% Kubs and random other lines within the Kub Universe.

Is anyone looking for complete sets for Series 1-7 with the common chases? AT this moment, I can't break each series up. PM me if interested...

And if anyone gets a spare Chewbacca from the new wave I'd gladly buy it off ya for my Chewie focus... :chew

I didn't know that about the R2 and 3PO. Good to know that my early bird versions are different. However, from my understanding, the horror Disney 2-packs appear to be the same, minus possibly the trademark and date. Same for the forthcoming Jessie Kubrick from Toy Story. These were rare chases that are being re-released as common figures.

icruise
03-09-2010, 08:59 PM
I haven't been following the non-Star Wars ones much recently, so I'm not sure about those. It's certainly not inconceivable that they might re-release some of the Rebo Band characters with minor changes as chases, but it would be a big disappointment because it would be boring (just think of all of the characters they could have made for the chases instead) and it would also piss off the hardcore collectors. Plus, it wouldn't even be a very good deal for the people who haven't bought the Rebo Band box set. You could easily pay about the same price for the 3 chases as you might pay for the box set.

karamazov80
03-09-2010, 09:00 PM
I don't disagree. I think it's a crap move by Medicom toward collectors. Same with their re-release of the RAH Snake figures. But the almighty yen is a powerful force.

Nitro
03-10-2010, 07:36 AM
It's one of the reasons why I stopped collecting Kubricks. I couldn't imagine forking over $200 for one of those early bird kits and find that they are going to release the same figs with minor alterations. It's not right, but Medicom knows that they can make money on that because people will buy regardless. Thankfully, I got out of chasing 'bricks...

I was really out of collecting for awhile, as well (though I have them displayed at home). But like others, these new "original trilogy" figures have sucked me back in.

03-10-2010, 09:41 AM
The smart thing to do is to just get the regular figures and not worry about the chases or exclusives, but that can be hard to do. Generally speaking I don't care about the chases, but I do plan to get the ones for this wave unless they're unappealing for some reason.

karamazov80
03-10-2010, 09:44 AM
I only care about figures representing the characters I want. But what do you do when freakin' Grand Moff Tarkin is a chase? Or chest-burster Kane from Alien? You pay up is what you do.

Nitro
03-10-2010, 09:46 AM
I like the chases, it made the blind boxes more fun. I used to do well whenever I would preorder a box from a place like BBTS. I remember scoring a Endor han is my Series 5 box, General Veers with my Series 6 box and 2 Blue Royal Guards in the Series 7 box. Once Series 8 hit, Medicom was focusing on PT...and my focus was on OT. I had to get out instead of keeping up. I never went out and spent the crazy money that the chases would bring individually.

icruise
03-10-2010, 09:56 AM
I sort of like the idea of the chases -- you're right that it makes opening the boxes fun. But even when I get one, I usually just sell it to pay for the rest of the figures. I got into Kubricks a little late, but managed to get an unopened Series 6 box and got a Tarkin chase in it, so I sold it. Bottom line is that it wasn't worth over $100 to me to have a little Tarkin figure. Same with the blue Snaggletooth.

karamazov80
03-10-2010, 10:02 AM
I personally can't stand blind boxes. I like knowing what I'm getting, and I think that is a common sentiment in the U.S. (where blind boxes are nowhere near as popular a marketing gimmick as they are in Japan/Hong Kong). But also, I'm not a fan of extremely rare items simply for the sake that they are rare. If it is a figure I want, that's that, regardless of how common or rare it is. If I did like figures with 1/96 ratios, I would probably be a stronger advocate of the blind box idea. Because you can then minimize the scalping at stores by people who will do nothing but hunt for the packages that you know have the rarer figures (like some of the previous Marvel Legends releases, for instance). But then again, I have seen lots of open "Lost" Kubrick boxes at Urban Outfitters. . .

MadCow
03-10-2010, 12:34 PM
The blind box idea is was one of the things that made me collect Kubricks in the first place. I never liked that the SW kubs had each character on them so you kinda knew what you were getting but the chance of pulling a rare chase was intriguing. Busting open those little boxes was such a high. :)

Chase figures can spoil collecting faster than anything else I can think off, because they ultimately serve only scalpers.

That is why I stopped collecting Star Wars Kubricks because of the disrespect it shows collectors to make key characters secrets. When it was a Sandtrooper pauldron variant, an non SW figure like Indy or even blue Snaggletooth it was one thing. When Veers and Tarkin were both chases I quit. That was a giant 'f@%k you' from Medicom.

Kubricks are overpriced in typical Medicom fashion to begin with and it is insane to pay more for a 6 cm figure than a full HT or even RAH 1:6 figure.

karamazov80
03-11-2010, 06:51 PM
And the Indiana Jones chase figure is also slightly different in color (and maybe some details?) from the Indiana Jones that came with the bearbrick idol.

I meant to respond to this previously, but guess I didn't. If anyone cares to know, the Indiana chase is far different from the Be@rbrick 2-pack. They have different hats, different faces, and as you say, slightly different colored clothes and different accessories.

I tend to agree with you (especially about the part of them being over-priced from the get-go), but when you collect something, price can sometimes cease to be a factor. A couple years ago I never would have imagined spending $50+ on a 2-3 inch plastic toy, but I've done it, and will probably end up doing it again for one of the Croc Cap Naked Snakes.

I went ahead and ordered a box of 12 of the Jabba wave from National Console Support (http://www.shopncsx.com/kubrickstarwarsdxseries1.aspx). They've been good in the past. (Some ebay sellers will only sell boxes that they know have no chases in them, but I've gotten chases from NCSX a couple of times in the past.) They're not cheap at $175.90 but that's better than BBTS's $199.

They also have a coupon code you can use for $5 off kubricks until the end of the month. You have to input it during checkout in the "gift certificate" blank, not in the "coupon" blank in your cart. Here it is:

Yeah, eBay is probably your best bet. Some US retailers like BBTS carry them, but their prices are way too high. There is another retailer you can find searching the Kubrick Nation site (can't remember the name) that gave members there a 10% off discount, which came out to be a pretty good deal. But still, eBay is probably best. I got the complete set for less than $100 shipped.

Yeah, the thing is that most retailers will only sell boxes of 12, which really isn't the best way to get this set. Unless there's some reason you absolutely can't use ebay, just keep an eye out for a Buy-it-Now on a set of 6 + Jabba (make sure it says you get all of them, not just the basic 6).

I picked this set up at SDCC this year...one of my favorite sets of Kubricks so far. Looking forward to the Hoth set. I like this packing of "parts" in each figure, much like the Hasbro BAD days. Makes me feel I get more for my money

It's the least Medicom could do charging such ridiculously high prices. I'm still holding out to get the Hoth set for a half-way decent price. $120+ for 6 3 inch figures and a little Walker vehicle I don't have the driver for is a little much.

HA! That's nothing. I've paid more than that for 1 Kubrick. It's sickening...

Many have, and many will continue to do so. And it is sick. Hard to consider your Star Wars OT collection complete without major bad guy Grand Moff Tarkin. But you've got to pay $150 on the low end for that single figure. Silly. Just silly.

Just forget about the chases and you'll be a lot happier IMHO.

Seems to be working for me. But on a related note, Kubrick Nation simply would not load for me on a certain computer I was using. Didn't matter which browser I was using, or the internet connection, it just refused to load on this one laptop I had. No idea why.

Floppy Hat Luke
Ben Kenobi (Kenner-style - retractable saber and vinyl cape)
R5-D4
Sandtrooper (Black Pauldron)
Garindan
Tusken Raider (Kenner-style, vinyl cape)
Build-A-Figure: Landspeeder

Wave 4 - Death Star
Darth Vader (Kenner - vinyl cape)
Princess Leia (Kenner - vinyl cape)
R2-D2
Rebel Fleet Trooper
TIE Fighter Pilot (Kenner - gray gloves and boots)

I'm gonna get me some of those, but maybe not all. . .would like the Landspeeder, but Luke driving it will have a blank white chest block, thus looking ridiculous. Which kind of ruins it for me.

Well, you could always get an Early Bird Luke to drive it, although I'm not sure if he can actually sit down.

Any pictures of the next waves anywhere?

EDIT: Found them. Yeah, Luke looks pretty strange like that.

Early Bird Luke has a skirt that keeps him from sitting. And you can't take him apart. So, there is no Tatooine Luke that you can put in the speeder without "breaking" the Early Bird version.

I like the range of weapons offered with the Sandpeople. Hope Sideshow take note of this for their 1/6 release.
