I'm still waiting on this one. I really want a good x-wing so I'm leaning toward the tru exclusive. If amazon drops the price even more it may be too much to resist.

I ordered mine on Thursday then Fri I got the email saying they can ship it sooner around 8-21. Yet it shows in stock now. Amazon annoys me with their product descriptions and off the wall shipping times and packing. I just hope it arrives in great condition. This is one I want for the box just as much as I want the ship.

Well, with Amazon it is always a gamble, but from what I have experienced it is more of a 70% chance to get the items with some sort of damage or issue.

That's unbelivable, they to all the trouble to get an exclusive known collectors will want it in good condition then do this!! Also how about covering up peoples products so their private, not stolen and clean etc.

I guess we got what we paid for with the free shipping

for an extra $5.99, they will wrap it with "Amazon Gift Wrap" wrapping paper, but there is no mention of another box it would be placed in for shipping

I have to admit that I've never understood carded collectors. I do have a four carded figures, but at least with those you can see the product inside. With something like this, what good is keeping Slave I sealed up? You might as well just have a bunch of styrofoam in there if it's in a box like that. Mind you, Amazon should be a little more mindful while shipping, but I also know that Amazon's price for this thing is a whole lot cheaper than it would have been anywhere else.

EDIT: Okay, I just read the JTA post about shipping. I didn't realize the vehicle's box didn't come in another box. That is ridiculous!

I got my Slave I from Amazon today and it came in a thin, white cardboard box. The Slave I box fits very snug inside the white mailer box and it had a few minor issues, but overall the Vintage Style Box is in pretty good shape.

Has anyone opened their's yet? I looked at the instructions and put the thing together but I can't get the wings to lay flat as if the ship has landed. I don't know if I'm doing something wrong or if mine's defective, but the wings feel like they're spring loaded and won't lay flat. I'm afraid to try and force it because I might break the silly thing, but it bugs the crap out of me that I can't get it to look right.

Also I think it would have been super-cool if it came with a clear plastic stand that you could use to hold the ship upright. It would be awesome to display it upright with out having to hang it.
