Ok, it's a little late, but what with being in Canada and all, it took a while. Now, before you go on, as a big shock, I'm going to complain as a bit of a novelty for a geek board.
DBK was kind enough to pick one of these up for me to trade it to me. I was looking forward to getting it and we worked a fair deal and Matt packed it well and shipped it quick, so none of my gripe is with him.
I opened up the box and my first reaction was...huh
It's kind of nifty in the package and all upon first glance. Upon second
glance it was more like huh
. That's about all I could muster. Matt told me ahead of time that the outer plastic wasn't mint and I'd heard other reports too. It wasn't in horrible shape, but I pressed out a pushed in section and I can't believe how ****** the case is. It's really soft, crappy plastic for a "protective"
The Vader itself is I guess as should have been expected given it is a crappy old POTF2 Vader, but I actually liked that figure, both as the original (the first SW toy I ever owned) and the TFV version looked pretty nice too. But this one, um, sucks ****. Is that the right way to put it? I dunno, maybe it's cuz I have to go to the dentist today. I'm thrilled to have it and lame ass loser that I am, I'm getting another from Beth, but geez, I guess I was expecting more.
