Re: The Action Figure and Toy Collecting and Discussion Thread!

HEADS UP FOR STAR WARS COLLECTORS HERE:

Reports are coming in at the SW collecting sites that some 3.75” Black Series figures in the first wave have a serious packaging defect. The blister bubbles are peeling and even falling off their cardbacks, both in the stores and after some people buy and get them home. If you're strictly a loose collector and opener this won't matter as much, but more than a few mint-carded folks are pretty disappointed and upset after blowing cash on the new figures.

Mine don't seem to be experiencing this bubble glue issue, but I'll keep an eye on them in case it starts with my carded copies. Looks like Hasbro's factory in China is having some problems with sealing the packaging and the quality of this particular blister glue.
