If you’ve never heard of them, Kubricks are a toy made by Medicom Toy of Japan. They’re about two inches tall, resembling a cross between LEGO and Playmobil figures. There are tons Kubrick sets based on anime titles, movies, video games and more. They’re often produced in very limited qualities which make certain sets extremely hard to find, and quite expensive when you do.
Here are a few that are currently up on eBay.
Grand Theft Auto: Vice City – 28.90 BIN
Metal Gear Solid 2 – Whopping $378 BIN
Metal Gear Solid 3 – $98 BIN
Metal Gear Solid 3 Camo – $9.40 BIN
Super Mario Bros. – Currently around $10
This seller has a bunch, including Zelda and lots of Mario ones.
Overall, there nifty little toys, but as you can see, they can get rather expensive. If you see something you like, make sure you get it at launch, otherwise you’ll pay through the nose for it later.
Personally, I want the Resident Evil figures. However, I cannot find them! Even a quick Google search couldn’t reward me with an image to show you. There out there….. and they will be mine!
