They were in such a hurry to make money off that Clone 3 pack that they copy pasted the Heroes of Endor product description onto it!

Creating this as it was oddly missing from our online shopping section & I know lots of people are making use of their website for pre-ordering.

I managed to order a wampa. It just arrived already and in perfect condition. I must say I'm disappointed in the vintage packaging though. They went and gave it that silvery reflective finish. I hate it when they make the packaging "special" like that. The reflection really takes away from the vintage aesthetic.  :speechless-smiley-004:

What if I told you only have a 1 in 10 chance of getting the silvery reflective finish vs. the regular finish.  Are you excited about it now?

Ha if that is the case I suppose it could be a nice bonus if I decided to sell it. Otherwise no, it still kinda ruins the look. For the same reason prefer no glare glass when framing photos and posters.

Is that actually the case though? The only in hand photos I've seen online have the reflective finish. All non-reflective images are the Hasbro press photos.

I don't think it is the case.  I had the same reaction you did.  It is harder to see the graphics.  Not sure why they did it.  I just wanted to get you excited about it - if only for a few seconds of thinking you had the $300 version everyone is hunting for.   :luke: :P

Haha you tease! I wouldnt have been surprised. Though I was surprised when I opened the parcel. I dont think they gave any indication of this finish.

Hi DarthMark , the Vintage Collection 501st Clone 3Pack was supposedly a hasbro pulsecon online exclusive. Pulsecon was hasbro's showcase for upcoming products that was held last Friday and Saturday with the exclusives being sold starting last Wednesday. The Clone 3 pack sold out early on Thursday but then oddly they showed up at Ebgames.ca just this Monday. Ask your local eb store to see if they can get any in, it couldn't hurt and since the quantities are limited you could end up being the squeaky wheel.
