The Vintage Collection / Re: Boba Fett Mail-Away Offer?
« on: September 18, 2010, 09:15 AM »
I recognize that the Fett is "free", but if I order a set of glassware from Target.com and it comes to me with all the glass shattered and they tell me "sorry we skimp on packaging" I'm not going to be okay with it.

And I may be quoting the wrong person but I think Jesse James said I'd rather have damaged than nothing. I agree with that, but still seems like they could do a little something to not let this happen.

Not sure that that analogy holds up - is anyone getting their Fetts completely shattered? I doubt Target would care if the box for your glassware was dented so long as you got the glasses intact. I know carded collectors are serious about the condition of cards, but Hasbro is selling the toys, not the packaging. All this complaining would be totally justified if the actual product were damaged, but I don't know that the packaging is really much of Hasbro's concern so long as you get the actual toy in one piece.

Not to be insensitive to the carded collectors or anything....

I don't think my analogy was perfect by any means, but I do think any business has to care what their particular buyers want and they are obviously aware that plenty of them want their packaging in good shape. So if it isn't their concern I think that would just be bad business. Now again when their business in this case is a "free" item, they don't care as much, but they still are not making a percentage of their buyers happy with this. That is never a good thing AND most important to ME is it sucks if MINE is mutilated.

I don't get how it's even acceptable to Hasbro?

They obviously know most of these are going to collectors and thus should be in good shape.

I guess I'm just hoping the bubble is still attached to the card.

When did you who are getting these send away for yours?

I thought the game was horrible. I thought it was more about bad offense than good defense which seems like a weird thing to say in a Vikings/Saints game.

I just want a Yoda.

I know there WAS a Yoda at KW Target. I'll double check today.

Bought a "pack" today in which the ANH Leia was the plain site bean and I could see a Boba Fett was in the hidden top part. Didn't need these, but couldn't resist.

This is a Boba Fett related toy and I'm NOT going to buy it. For me to say that shows how ridiculous the pricing is. I'll get Bossk when they single card him and be fine with my current Slave 1s.

Good thing I'm at work because otherwise there may have been an awkward intimate moment between me and that shot of Ackbar.

IG-88 is in the current Saga Legends line.

Oh I know, I picked one up to replace the 'battle damaged' one I had from 07 ;)
I was just musing outloud why 4-LOM was in the Vintage line VS IG-88.

At least based on why I wanted to buy the 4-LOM, my guess is since in 2007 we got a Vintage IG88 people would rather get a Bounty Hunter that hadn't been released with a Vintage version (unless I'm forgetting there was a Vintage 4LOM)

Is the Mando on bike set out at retail yet?  That is the only one I haven't seen - and probably will get.

People have found this at TRU if I remember correctly.

Very interesting. I shouldn't get it, but I think I will.

Beautifully put.

Don't get me started on the Vikings not drafting a QB.

I'm a Vikings fan and I still want Claussen to be a star just to spite the team I root for.

Has there been numerous reports of this wave hitting yet? I'm always wary to spend any time hunting when just one or two third person reports are posted.
