Saw this first hand in the stores myself. Just confirming that the Sidious head is the exact same one as from the vintage line?Yes. there maybe the most minor of paint differences, nothing to consider "new".
For the curious, the wing problem:
The wings won't stay in position for "flight" mode because Hasbro used a spring that is too strong and too thick. If you swap it with the 2010 version, it works fine.
Also, I have no idea where to get a good tiny spring. Mechanical pencil? Pens? I'm going to gut some stuff and see what I can get.
Check out how Amazon is handling the shipment of some orders. I think I've seen 30yr old Vintage Kenner boxes in better shape.
Mine came in a Hasbro-branded white mailer box, I'll be posting it in a bit. Mine's basically mint and it came from the Kentucky DC if that makes a difference.
Here's the problem with mine - either I'm a moron, or the wing mechanism is faulty. Or both, I won't discount it. The wings will not rotate but the cockpit will - the wings just bounce back into the "landing" position on mine.
My 2010 Jango Clone Wars Rise of Boba Fett TRU one works fine, though, so I know it's not an assembly issue on my part but it feels internally, something's amiss. What are you guys finding?
Should've make it with an "exploding" feature, like the old Micro Collecton X-Wing.
