Title: Black Series 40th ESB Anniversary Figures
Post by: IanToronto on April 27, 2020, 01:54:47 PM
I ordered 2 cases/sets of the 40th Anniversary wave 1 figures. They arrived today. I opened the cases up and I'm disappointed....why?..because of the return of 'Bubblegate'.
Both AT-AT Driver bubbles were separating from the cards....and one of my Leias is starting to separate on one corner. UGH!

I picked up a yoda and it appears to be fine, tight glue all around.

I've seen these at two Walmarts now and they all looked ok.  I've decided to pass on these, I got the first wave and had planned on the second, but I'm just not feeling the nostalgia for these ones like I did the first set...

It's hit and miss.  My Luke is good.  I saw three different At-At drivers.  One was peeling and half the bubble was falling off and the other 2 looked fine.

Found the wave Yesterday, looks like Walmart is going in pretty heavy on these. The store I was at had branded cardboard display box with the ESB 40th Logo and the 29.97 price tag printed on it. Looked like it would hold at least 12 figures plus there were at least another two cases on the pegs.
