I had ordered 40 of these prior to receiving my Shadow Stormtroopers. Looked like they were an improvement over Star Cases, as they fit all types of cards (including Clone Wars!!).
After receiving my Shadow Stormtroopers, I got worried because they arrived in their Hasbro cases and the two top angle cut corners were bent. The cases didn't seem to fit quite right.
Well, today I received the 40 cases I ordered and they are essentially the same deal. I was hoping to use these for TSC and animated Clone Wars figures, but they don't quite fit right for either one.
The TSC cards get bent on the two angle corners at the top, and the Clone Wars cards get bent on the lower-right sharp corner. If these things were 2 milimenters bigger in all directions they would be absolutely perfect, and by far the best "universal" fit. Unfortuneately, it seems that Hasbro does not have any of their own figures to try out as a test case and designed these to be too small.
Not sure what to do now... I have 40 nearly useless cases. I don't really feel like paying return shipping to Hasbro and getting soaked on shipping twice (the high shipping was the reason I finally decided to order 4 sets of ten). I also don't feel like selling them on eBay where I won't even likely get what I paid for them.
I'm sure they would fit vintage and POTF2 designs fine but I already have plenty of regular Star Cases for those. What I need are cases that fit the newer designs.
What is the point of cases to protect figures if the cases themselves damage the figures??? Couldn't someone at Hasbro figure this out?? This is just really disappointing, and I certainly feel like I got screwed here.
I guess I could wait for the 30th anniversary cards and hope they will fit... I heard Hasbro mention this to be the case (ha ha) on Star Wars Action News ComiCon episode. But then again... Hasbro seems to think their current figures fit too.
