Carded C-3PO and R2-D2 Kubrick Figures (Medicom Exhibition 2013)

September 4, 2013

Kubricks are often sold in blind boxes, so you can’t tell which figure you’re getting, but with the Jabba’s Palace wave, they used different boxes for each figure. They were still closed boxes, though, so you couldn’t actually see the figure (and there was a even chance that the figure inside was a rare chase figure rather than the one pictured on the box).

As a nod to the old-school Star Wars figures, Medicom periodically releases carded versions of some of their figures for special events. Most recently, they released carded versions of C-3PO (with Salacious Crumb) and drink serving R2-D2 for the Medicom Exhibition 2013 in Japan.

The attraction of these is entirely in the fact that they are on cards, so I don’t think many people would be opening them up (not when the regular versions of the figures are identical and cheaper). I think they should also do a Kubrick version of the box from the vintage Jabba toy, but maybe that’s just me.
