BUBBLEGATE!!!!  Just came back from EB Games....bought some Vintage Collection figures.  When I got home, I didn't realize that the bubble was starting to separate from the cardback on my FO Stormtrooper.   ........................It's going back to the store.

AND!...I have to say that the tape securing the bubble to the cardbacks is a wonderful added touch there Hasblow!  Cardbacks seem to be a little flimsy. Fix the issues now!!!!

If I were to order just 1 sealed case of vintage collection figures from, do they double box the case when they ship?...or do they just ship out the sealed case as is?

I guess since the price of the Dewback is $99.99 at Toys R Us, the SKU# must be different from that of the Landspeeder with Luke (SKU 340647), and Speeder Bike with Rey (SKU 340653), otherwise they would be the same price of $69.98.

Also, I think they were re-packing the Landspeeder and/or the Speeder Bike as part of the Dewback wave? (I'm pretty sure I read this somewhere many months ago.)

$81.00 with the Platinum Edge Card at EB Games is a 19% difference.....we will probably only see a 20% off sale at Toys R Us in the next little while....I might as well give EB Games my money.  Clearance probably won't come until around X-Mas this year and it will be that will have the lowest prices on this set probably.

I always find it strange that the 6 inch animated characters are always the first ones to get scoped up....I just don't get it. I would expect the Rey to go first as the new facial technology is superb on this figure and is of a real living actress. ...and Rex is an animated character.  I guess maybe it's  because I'm more of an original trilogy collector and Rogue One collector......and I don't watch the animated series.

Thanks Bob for your reply....I appreciate it.  I found it very weird because I couldnt see the screen she was using to look up my online order...the computer she was using was not sitting on the front counter of the customer service desk...but on the counter behind it where they pile all the returned would be better to at least have the monitor at the front counter so they can show the customer their order on the monitor and explain the return process prior to completing the return transaction.  I guess I will know in a few business days if CJ is correct and I'm totally screwed.

Time for a little serious note....
As someone who purchases star wars toys online from, I have never had a concern about returning anything to a Walmart store....until tonight.

I was returning a couple of black series figures...(and no they wern't Scarif Stormtroopers) a Walmart store in Oakville, ON....and they now have this stupid separate computer system for returning online purchases.  Basically, after the customer service rep processed my return, there is no longer a return receipt that is provided to the customer. She basically just wrote with her pen the return amount on my original email receipt that I printed basically, I have no receipt or email of proof that the return was made.  I asked 'Where is my return receipt?' and the rep said 'There is no longer any paper return receipt provided to the customer.'  I thought this is completely unacceptable as what happens if the return doesn't end up going back on my credit card...'What am I supposed to do?... come back to the service counter and provide what as proof that I actually did a return?'  I ended up speaking to the Duty Manager at the Oakville store and explained my concern, but unfortunately, she too said there are no longer any return receipts provided to the customer....they just say ' ok...the return has been done, you should see the money in your account in a few business days'.

So I'm reaching out to fellow snowtroopers to see if anyone else has experienced the same type of return system lately as I have a concern that there is the potential of the return not being done properly...and I wouldn't want any fellow collector returning an item to suffer a potential similar fate.
