It seems inconceivable that a company could let such a flagrant disregard for quality control pass mustard. And yet, I can't unseen that.

Got my Troop Transport from HTS as well and I have to say I'm a little underwhelmed. It's cool in a nostalgic way, but not in any other.

Hey, don't knock HTS.  They have been hitting it out of the park lately.

I agree. I cleaned up on the mission series stuff as well. Black series wave 7 is poised to break and I'm still checking HTS more than a couple of times a day.

Saw the Imperial Transport at TRU yesterday. It's packed 3 per case apparently. Luckily, mine was waiting for me at home from HTS, shipped free with 20% off.

Also saw wave 4 2-packs (Hera wave) at Target.

I was starting to think some of these Legends figures were alright, then today I got Bly and the Endor versions of Luke, Leia, and Han.

What a bunch of clunkers.  The Han's the only decent one.  The Luke looks deformed.

I was thinking the same exact thing. The vintage Endor Leia was a much better figure than this legends version.

And I didn't know the Lando Skiff guard helmet was not removable. Wow. In a negative way.

Saw something scary this passed week. Stopped in my area's flagship TRU in Los Angeles, the Porter Ranch store, and found a rest SW isle with no shelf space allotted for 3 3/4 inch figures whatsoever. Black, Mission, Legends, Rebels; nothing.

Couldn't believe it when this last wave went up as well. I picked up the three OT sets.

It's been a good week at HTS. Picked up the IG-88/Bossk and Wicket/Bikerscout sets, the next two waves of single carded figs and the Transport. Sabine and the other two packs were in stock, but I declined to purchase them.

Getting a case might be a good deal for this one. I can probably unload the extra clones no problem and just be left with an extra Luke. The Troopers will just get added to my army.

I literally just nabbed Endor, Luke, Han and Leia as well as X-Wing Luke, Bespin Han and Lando from HTS.

It's seems pretty likely that whomever Jayson was communicating with does not read/speak/write English as their first language.  And THAT was the root of the issue. 

That's most likely the case. It was my first thought when I had heard the controversy.

Interesting side note to your post is the listing for a TBS Imperial Navy Commander.  I'm wondering if this is a straight-up reissue of the 2012 TVC figure or perhaps a repaint to honor the vintage Death Squad Commander?

According to JTA's Q&A with Hasbro reps, it's just a straight repack (same with the RFT).

I would hope that they fix the shoulder emblem at the very least.

Ooooo. Mon Calamari Officer resculpt. Good one.


Anyone legitimately thinking about buying these?

I hope I can answer for everyone, everywhere -- No.
