even have tiny marks on the image that the import version doesn’t have (Must be a printing issue as identical). Regardless they really are a bit shit. The figure is decent though. I’m trying to cancel my pre-order for the other six too, but haven’t heard back yet. Feel a bit sorry for the seller as suspect quite a lot of people won’t want them with the silly info sheet inside the bubble.

Conversely I picked up one of those funky SDCC prototype Vaders. Didn’t really want it all that much from the pics online, but in hand, the card is lovely. Feels like a premium product in terms of packaging. It’s a real shame they didn’t make the retro collection with the same care.


Yeah I feel bad for the seller too... but the product is really poor quality. I’m sure they’ll sell them eventually but collectors won’t want them.

I cancelled my order as well. Feel slightly bad for the seller as you say

Mine arrived today... in a sealed "shipping case"! The collector in me can't bring myself to open it :oops:

The printed edge wear really does spoil them, such a shame! It's ironic that they did so little research that they didn't know collecotrs of old toys LOVE them to be mint
