You got 2 Jabba's you lucky man!
I received my Knights of Unicron set today. The FedEx box was all smashed up and there doesn't appear to have been any packing materials inside (although it is BIG!)
I have two questions:
1. Was it ever sealed (meaning, shrink-wrapped)? Mine arrived "open", but seemingly complete and intact otherwise. Based on the condition of the box, I'm now curious.
2. What's your opinion on this? ...It came slightly damaged (see attached pics). I'd prefer it perfect, but I was given two options when I called HTS: they will give me small % refund or exchange it; however, they cannot guarantee it will still be in stock for an exchange, which they would only process upon receipt.
Awww, that sucks. I wanted to display it sealed. ;(
Man, Jabba came in a pretty freaking oversized box.
Good thing I got three other boxes in the past 2 days to stuff inside to make disposing of them easy.
His packing has a slightly bent back corner and the rest have clearly all been rounded a bit from bumps.. But it doesn't bother me since I wasn't going to use that. And it's not that bad at all.
Just glad to have this all over with.
Mine was't sealed either. My Unicron set was fine but dinobot was smashed so gonna email them.
That is terrible, the boxes they are using are just way to large they are to lazy to get boxes the correct size.
That is just insulting, I'm sure they have others they can replace it with however they just don't seem to care.
I was thinking of including these lightsabers with my Jabba's and these packs of cards with my Dinobots. However I'm not sure if this stand I have in the picture to the left would work for the Magic cards. I'm not sure if who ever bought the set off me would want to display it like I had planned.
These are the stands I use for my MP cards however I would think one that has these cards would want easier access to said cards and not have to find a screw driver to get the card out. Thoughts???
EDIT: Picture Removed
Here is a better picture of the other stand.
My opinion - VERY high likelihood that it will still be in stock so option 2 seems reasonable. Although mine wasn't sealed at all and you may not get one in much better shape. While not great how you received it, they look MISB compared to some of the Soundwave boxes TRU shipped last year.
Your display looks friggin' awesome with the figures in both modes with the card and coin. Now I'm wishing I had gotten the coins with my MPs.
I'll take the 10% mines not as bad
when you unfold it can't really see the damage but gonna suck if I wanna sell it off and some point. I didn't call just emailed them, lets see what they offer.
Well got my order in and...it was wrong. I ordered the Marvel Legends set and they sent me the Marvel Infiniti Gauntlet set. They said I could return it for a full refund or get a partial refund if I wanted to keep it, but they couldn't exchange it at this point because they don't know if they have any more in stock. OR, I could wait and try to grab one if it gets restocked.
So, my question, was the brief restock(s) that happened today a glitch or are we expecting a bigger restock after cancellations of previous orders?
^ That sux! The Legends are $25 more than the than the Universe set too. If you get a partial refund I hope it's more than $25.
Finally received my Rom, Thanos 4 pack From HTS & my Dinobot set from ebay (should have waited and saved $40 but oh well) Rom Is Cute (I own The original), so Big Rom has a little brother now. Thanos set is huge. The dinobot set is great BUT... it is very delicate. From the outside it looks fine but underneath on the inside there is an area where it expands and it was engineered a little screwy, so it of course.... rips. It is unnoticeable, but if you look inside, AS you are opening it, it tears. Nothing can be done , glue, tape, nothing. I suggest everyone look at theirs. Hopefully nothing on the outside will get damaged
I don't know of any tearing but mine has some really weak glue in several spots and it's pulling apart. Nothing a little hot glue wont fix I suspect. Other than that though I'm loving this set, it's going to make a great display for my WST collection.
Thank you kinda sir, I have about 70% of my collection displayed like that.
Sorry man, but I looked at your picture of MP Rodimus and he just broke...
Friend of mine got his notice his Magic set is shipping. I still haven't gotten my Kre-O set. Called up and they said it was still in process but there are delays with sorting all the orders.
Stop breaking my STUFF!
I'm expecting one day to come home to a busted MP-5 or MP-9, they just seem so frail.
MTG set and other exclusives just taken down...again
Let the games begin again...
Jem, Thanos, Gauntlet, Jabba icons = still appear with "out of stock" tag...
Now Jabba's gone too.
