Haven't posted here since I can't remember when... No loss of interest in Star Wars or the toys, just not that much exciting until the past few weeks
I got a Slave I myself, which arrived in the white shipping sleeve. Corners on the box were dinged a bit, but as I typically open my items, it wasn't a big issue. The ship and all parts were there on mine - no sign the actual box had been opened or tampered with. I noticed the issues with the wing-spring right away. I found that by disengaging the strut on one of the wings and turning the part with a little force, it snapped into the flight mode and held there. Its not really anything to cause me too much worry...
I was a bit disappointed by the Han Solo in Carbonite figure, which was just a hollow shell - I wanted something more solid that at least had some weight and would make a "plunk" if I stood it upright and tipped it over.
Still, I am very happy Hasbro made the ESB version of Slave I using the large-scale tooling. Its a classic ship and was well over due. It saved me from having to eventually repaint my Clone Wars version, which was the initial reason why I got that. Now my Boba Fett figure has his ship
