Canada Post Parcel Delivery Delays: A Star Wars Story

Hello fellow collectors!

I just thought I would vent my frustrations with Canada Post right now.  I get it that there is a Pandemic....I get it they are social distancing at the sorting facilities....what I don't get is how disorganised from a customer perspective they are at processing & delivering parcels during this time within a reasonable time. The delays I'm experiencing (and probably most of you) are beyond comprehension right now. Who the heck is organizing things there???  Nobody by the looks of things.

This is what I'm waiting on:
1. Parcel shipping from Entertainment Earth, left the USA for Canada on May 25th, has yet to processed by Canada Post  (heck I will gladly pay any duties and taxes just for a tracking update)....waiting over 2 weeks.
2. Parcel shipping from Mississauga ON, which is being shipped to my home address in Mississauga ON, shipment was picked up on May 29, was processed yesterday June 08, ye

New Black Series Packaging

If you haven't seen it, the Black Series packaging will be changing for wave 25 and the Rebels wave (Btw - you can preorder at amazon and redshift7 already)

So, basically, they went all Marvel Legends for the packaging.  Is it better?  Sure - especially from the side where you can get a nice pic of the figure.  This is a HUGE deal for placing items on the shelf, where you can get a lot more shelf space when they are on the side like that.  In a place like EB Games where shelf space is at a premium showing that picture is a much better draw than the awful side of the red line.

But the front is boring as hell.  It's boxy, and makes poor use of the small band of color.  It would have helped a LOT if the inside had the same band of color, but they've made it white(ish).  It's the BLACK series and they made the inside WHITE.   :sign0065:

In addition, they will regret the decision to make the sides o

New Hasbro figures at Superstore - These are not the figures we are looking for

While at Superstore I took a look at the toy aisles and there were 2 new Hasbro figure lines out. Unfortunately they're both budget lines.

There were 3.75" zero-articulation figurines: Luke, Vader, FO Stormie and Chewbacca - 5.98. Made in Vietnam with a date code of 93651. Yakface has a report of these being found in the US in November https://yakfaceforums.com/main/2019/11/26/articulation-free-figures-at-five-below/.

There were also 9.5" Olympus 4POA figures: Luke, Vader, FO Stormie and Kylo Ren - 12.98. Again made in Vietnam with a date code of 00381. JTA has a post about these figures https://www.jeditemplearchives.com/2020-03-21-hasbro-introduces-yet-another-new-star-wars-action-figure-line/.

Black Series 40th ESB Anniversary Figures

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!
