So I got home to find the Slave I box sitting on my front porch, shipping labels on it, handwritten UPS numbers written on it, and one end flap hanging completely open. I immediately called Amazon Customer Service and explained how disheartening this situation was, and she said she could either give me an expedited refund or a discount if I wanted to keep the item. As I hadn't inspected the toy itself, given my disgust with the packaging, I asked if I could call back later, and she offered to call me back instead.
Upon inspecting the already damaged and opened box, I found several pieces of the ship (including the passenger seats and boarding ramp) simply laying broken, loose and unsecured in the box. I immediately slid the inner cardboard back into the outer box, and resigned myself to a refund.
This is simply unacceptable, and I made that clear to Amazon. I certainly hope that others do, too. In all my years of ordering from Amazon, this is the first time I've ever had an item arrive without even being packed in any shipping material and, even worse, it has driven yet another nail in my figurative Hasbro coffin. While I'm glad to be getting a refund, I'm still tremendously disappointed. Amazon should know better. Period.
