Hi Everyone,

**I would like to keep this topic focused on Vintage Collection figures**

I'm excited about the Vintage Collection returning....but I'm not excited when my Vintage Collection figures show up in the mail damaged or see them at retail damaged with bubbles hanging off. As someone who like to collect these figures as close to 'mint' condition as possible, it has been a struggle with orders coming from Amazon, ToysRUs, Walmart, EB Games, etc.  I've returned many Vintage Collection figures.....more than usual...because of the new Hasbro packaging and the lousy shipping and packing jobs by our local retailers.  I've even had issues with Dorkside Toys and BigBadToyStore as well. I have wasted a lot of time returning figures with damaged cardbacks and crushed bubbles.

Anyhow, I know everyone likes to spend the least amount of money on shipping....and not everyone can afford to pay a premium price....but I'm willing to pay a little more for shipping and  packaging if it means I'm going to get my Vintage Collection figures as close to mint condition as possible.

So....my most successful delivery of 'near-mint/mint' vintage collection figures and vehicles/playsets is from robotkingdom.com in Hong Kong.

I have received 3 packages from them in the last month and all my vintage collection items have been 'near-mint/mint' condition.  They double box if you order full cases, and reinforce the shipping box with styrofoam piece....and they custom cut the styrofoam to fit every little space in the shipping box. I receive my orders within less than 6 business days....so shipping is fast with tracking. They take credit card orders via PayPal. Shipping will be high.  I have ordered the following with success:

Jabba's Palace Adventure Playset $59.90 (these are 2 to a case....and they where double-boxed)
Han Solo Stormtrooper Disguise $14.90 (Target exclusive)
Lando Calrissian (Skiff Guard)$14.90 (Walmart exclusive)
Luke's Skywalkers's Tauntuan $29.90 (Target exclusive from 2011)...Yes! they have brand new 'old' stock of these.
Han Solo (Echo Base), Darth Vader, Princess Leia (Hoth Outfit), Luke Skywalker (Endor Capture) $62.90 ...these are the retooled 2nd release of these figures with photorealistic profiles

I have been so pleased with their shipping that I wouldn't hesitate to order from them again.  I would highly recommend ordering from them if you are looking to get your vintage collection figures and vehicles/playsets in 'near-mint/mint' condition....and you don't mind paying a premium.  (They also have other Star Wars figures including 6-inch exclusives.)

UPDATE: 2 out of 3 orders I had to pay customs fees on. And the funny thing is... my most expensive order, I did NOT have to pay custom charges.

Did my first transaction with Mike recently.  Everything went smoothly.  Prompt payment and very easy to deal with. Enjoy the Sideshow Dewback and Sandtrooper.

Got an Fan Expo email this morning that HasbroStore line bypass is available and you can register.....but I haven't been able to see/open the registration form....I get redirected to Hasbro's website home page.  Anyone else out there having the same issue??

(I'm thinking they might have sent out the email without it actually being ready.)

Also.....

VC Dr. Aphra Special Action Figure Set - $69.99
BS Han Solo with Mynock - $59.99
Forces of Destiny Chewbacca with Porgs - $69.99 (but I don't really care to pick this up)...except for Ookk.
Starkiller Base Centerpiece with Rey and Kylo - $149.99 (but I don't really care to pick this up).....expensive garbage.

I'm also hoping that they have non-exclusive merchandise there as well like they did last year.  Maybe they will have the BS Zuckuss there (as Hasbrostore is managed in partnership with ToysRUs Canada) or at least some Vintage Collection 3.75 inch figures (Wave 2) and I still need a BS Rebel Fleet Trooper.

Vintage Collection is finally back baby!!!! This is what I'm talking about.
It's a thing of beauty!  Box is solid, no flimsy cardboard, there is some weight to it too.
Found it at my local Toys R Us store for $119.99.  Currently in Ontario, there is only 2 per store and not all stores have them yet. Go get 'em!
