If they took the blasters away (which never should have been in there in the first place) - why did they leave it so the tray has space for them? They should have changed the tray to just have the figure standing in the center of the bubble, facing forward.

Pretty sloppy IMHO.

Wow, have a look at this Holo Leia that was just delivered to an on-line acquaintance:




Another great packing job by StarWarsShop.com!   ::)

I wish I could say I was surprised, but with every new exclusive figure come the horror stories of people receiving crushed figures and what-not.   :(

I guess I'm fortunate my two arrived with only slightly bent peg holes on the star case.

It's so totally lame that the tray still has the slots for the blasters. It almost flushes the whole piece down the toilet. It almost looks like a factory error, and is really sloppy for a con exclusive.

That is so bad its not funny anymore.
So many people seem to be getting stuf like that from them.
I guess they will say that was a non mint one.
Maybe they need to teach their employees that starwars fans demand mint stuff when they purchase, so they will pack things a bit better.
Thats unforgivable.
On a side note they have started to show up here in Australia at our Kmarts as well.
Picked up a couple for me yesterday.
Seems each store gets only one case of 10.
The problem with America is stupidity I'm not saying there should be a capital punishment for stupidity, but why don't we just take the safety labels off of everything and let the problem solve itself

Are they still labeled as SDCC exclsuives down there? I'm just curious.

Anyone know what might of happened with any of the holo guns that were originally suppose to ship with this figure?  We know some were made.  I would like to find a loose one for my collection to add to my loose Leia.  I know it is not movie accurate but the stance she has makes the figure look awkward plus it is a nice conversation piece.

That would actually be very cool.
