There is some good news and lots of bad news on the Amazon Excluisve Slave I vehicle. Lets start off with the good news. If you ordered your Slave I as a Gift Order they did ship in a brown Amazon box.
The Bad news. Some people that have opened up their Slave I are reporting that there are missing parts and that there is a manufacturing issue causing the wings not to function properly.
Amazon is aware of the problems and have taken this item down for ordering also they have issued the following statement:
"Item Under Review: This item is currently unavailable because customers have told us there may be something wrong with our inventory of the item, the way we are shipping it, or the way it's described here. (Thanks for the tip!) We're working to fix the problem as quickly as possible".
More people (including myself) have received Amazon's Exclusive Slave I in the white mailer box today. Most of the emails I received are from people outraged that these got shipped this way, because their boxes pretty much got crushed.
I received my order today as well in the White mailer box, but got lucky as it arrived pretty much un-crushed, which surprised the heck out of me. I do have another one of these coming tomorrow as well, but it was shipped as a gift, so we will see what happens with that shipment.
Also it looks like Amazon has addressed this shipping issue. They have removed the shipping info: "This item ships in its own packaging" from the product page. Also some of our readers said that when they called Amazon's customer service to complain on the condition of their order, Amazon stated they are aware of the issue and all future orders will be shipped in a Amazon shipping box from today forward. So if you get your order and your not satisfied with it, be sure to
Stopped by my local Target store today and found their Excluisve Saga Legends The Rise of Darth Vader set today. Price was $29.99 each and the DPCI# for these are 087-06-2471. This set is basically just repacks of previous figures. I have added some photos to our HD Photo Gallery of the box front and back.
If you have a order about to ship or a pre-order for the Amazon Exclusive TIE Interceptor and Slave I, you may want to call Amazon and change your order to a "Gift Order".
Amazon states: "This item ships in its own packaging. To keep the contents concealed, select This will be a gift during checkout".
If you don't select this option on both of these items, there may be a chance of you getting these shipped in the original product box and these items arriving damaged or in a crushed box.
At no extra cost you can have these items shipped as a "Gift Order". Per the 3 customer service representatives I spoke with,
"If you select this option, your items will get boxed in a Amazon shipping box or envelope concealing its contents".
Now this does not guarantee that your items arrive mint, but it does increase the odds.
Rebelscum has posted some shocking news on how someone received their Amazon Exclusive Slave I today. It appears that Amazon's shipping department felt that the original box was good enough to ship the product to their customer. You can see the results of their decision in the image provided.
I am suppose to receive my order tomorrow and hopefully my shipment will not suffer the same fate.
Update: Just noticed Amazon's Shipping notes on the Slave I:
"Is this a gift? This item ships in its own packaging. To keep the contents concealed, select This will be a gift during checkout."
The Amazon Exclusive Slave I is now in stock and ready to ship! Get them while you can. Hopefully Amazon will pack these well, so the boxes don't get crushed or I have a feeling they will get a bunch of returns from collectors.
German Collecting site Starwars-figuren.com has posted some carded photos of the Amazon Exclusive Legacy Collection's Droid Factory 6-Pack which is scheduled to start shipping in October. The packaging looks great, to bad Hasbro decided not to continue with it. Head on over to check it out.
Uploaded to our HD Photo Gallery is The Black Series #02 Darth Maul 6-Inch figure. This is probably my favorite figure in this first wave. You kind of get two figures in one. First you get Maul Tatooine Encounter and also Darth Maul Final Duel. The figure is super articulated and includes a 2-Piece Lightsaber Hilt, 2 Lightsaber Blades, Macrobinoculars, Cloak with Head, and Interchangeable Head. Be sure to check out the photos!
Some of our readers have been asking about the 2013 Saga Legends Mission Series figures, so I have photographed the card fronts and backs of the first wave as a preview and have uploaded them to our HD Photo Gallery. Also the pages have been updated with UPC, ASST, and Card Number info. I will post loose photos after I finish with The Black Series.
Just got a email from one of our readers saying he found the Toys R Us Exclusive X-Wing Fighter at his local store in California. I made a few calls and have tracked down the UPC# 6 53569 85979 6 and also the Item# 904241. Retail price is $59.99 each. Happy Hunting!
Just got a email from Amazon on my pre-ordered Slave I:
"We now have delivery date(s) for the order you placed on July 01, 2013 (Order# ###-####-#####): "Star Wars The Empire Strikes Back Slave I Boba Fett's Spaceship Vehicle" Estimated arrival date: August 19, 2013 If you want to check on the progress of your order, take a look at this page in Your Account"So it looks like these are still on schedule. I just hope they get packed well, so they don't get delivered in crushed boxes.
Another amazing Black Series 6-Inch figure has been added to our HD Photo Gallery today. The #01 Luke Skywalker can be posed in just about any position due to all the articulation points. He includes a Removable Helmet, Lightsaber Hilt, Lightsaber Blade, and Blaster Pistol. If I had to complain about one thing, it would be his flesh tone is a bit off, but other then that a awesome figure.
The Black Series 6-Inch #03 Sandtrooper figure has been added to our HD Photo Gallery. This figure looks amazing! Extremely detailed and is super articulated. As for accessories, he includes a E-11 Blaster Rifle, T-21 light Repeating Blaster, Sniper Rifle, Backpack, and a Pauldron. Be sure to check out all the new photos!
As promised, a Complete set of The Black Series wave 1 figures with Smooth Card Bubbles have been added to our HD Photo Gallery. Each figure's page has been updated and contains both the Thermoformed and Smooth Card Bubble variations.
Added to our HD Photo Gallery today is the ultra rare and extremely popular (yes I am kidding) Saga Legends 12-Inch Clone Trooper and Anakin Skywalker figures. These are just repacks and were previously released in the 2013 Movie Heroes toy line. The only changes are the packaging. I actually found these today at my local Target store.
All of The Black Series Wave 1 figures have been added to our HD Photo Gallery. Now that I have finished photographing these, there is one issue with these figures. Most of them have very sloppy paint applications, which really wreaks the look of the finished product. Hopefully Hasbro will enforce a higher standard of quality control in the future. Anyways hope you enjoy the pictures.
Today I have added the 2013 Black Series Padme Amidala #01 figure to our HD Photo Gallery. The sculpt of this figure looks pretty good, much better then past figures. She has 14 points of articulation, which are Head, Shoulders, Elbows, Wrists, Waist, Hips, Knees and Ankles. Padme includes a Blaster Rifle and Pistol.
Well we got our first Black Series figure variation and its on the #07 Biker Scout figure. A few of the Biker Scout figures with the early Date Stamp of 31401 are showing up with Black painted pouch belts from his waist to hips. The figures with white pouch belts from his waist to hips with date stamps of 31401 and 31611 seem to be the more common version as of right now. You can see photos of both versions on the figure's page.
I kind of expected this to happen, so I have been keeping a eye out on eBay and found this variation and bought one last week.
So are the Black Belt versions rare? It's to early to tell, as these have barely started to hit retail stores.
A Complete set of The Black Series wave 1 figures with Thermoformed Card Bubbles have been added to our HD Photo Gallery. Each figure's page has been updated. I am still waiting for the rest of the Smooth Card Bubble variants, but should get them Monday.
As we mentioned earlier in the week, The Black Series has Card Bubble variations for those interested. I just received the rest of the thermoformed versions today, so I will add them all to our Photo Gallery soon. First up though, is the #06 Darth Vader figure. Thermoformed Card Bubble has a date stamp of 31401 and the Smooth Card Bubble has a date stamp of 31611. You can check out full size photos of these variations on the figure's page.
Today I have added The Black Series #02 Clone Trooper Sergeant figure to our HD Photo Gallery. This figure uses the same body as the #08 Clone Pilot but uses a different helmet and paint application. The Clone's head is also a darker flesh tone as well. He includes a Removable Helmet, and 2 Blaster Rifles. This sample also has his left hand filled in and can't hold any weapons at all, just the the Clone Pilot figure I posted a few days ago.
Just uploaded all new HD Photos of The Black Series Biggs Darklighter #04 figure. Another great figure from Hasbro. Biggs has 14 points of articulation which are Head, Shoulders, Elbows, Wrists, Waist, Hips, Knees, and Ankles. He includes a Removable Helmet and Blaster Pistol. Enjoy the photos!
All I can say is wow! The Black Series #06 Darth Vader is one awesome figure. The overall figure looks amazing not to mention he has a full cloth inner robe. Vader has 13 points of articulation which are Head, Shoulders, Elbows, Wrist, Hips, Knees, and Ankles. His Waist does not really move. He includes 2 Right Hands, Blast Effect, Lightsaber, and Blaster Pistol. If I had to complain about one thing, its that both right hands will not hold his Lightsaber or the Blaster. Be sure to check out all the new HD Photos, you won't be disappointed.
Another 2005 Transitional Photo Gallery update today, uploaded are all new loose and carded photos of the Scout Trooper (Endor Raid) #13 figure. He includes a Blaster and a Base. Enjoy.
