A month ago we brought you the Photo Archive for the Toys "R" Us exclusive X-Wing Fighter (Biggs Darklighter Red 3) from The Vintage Collection, and now we've had a couple of reports of the vehicle arriving in the U.S., one from Rebelscum reader Adrian in El Paso, Texas, and another from our very own Chris Wyman down in Florida. It's time to hit your local Toys "R" Us!

We're receiving reports that the first batch of Slave I vehicles shipped from Amazon continue to arrive in unprotected, damaged boxes. Readers are writing in to let us know that getting a replacement has been easy thanks to Amazon's friendly customer service, but it's come to our attention there may be another problem.

Amazon has reached out to us with an update on the shipping inconsistencies of their Hasbro exclusive Slave I. Moving forward all Slave I vehicles will ship with the white Hasbro-branded mailer and an outer shipping box. Anyone who received a Slave I that went out before the correction can request a replacement without question. If you are affected, contact Amazon Customer Service via phone at 1-888-280-3321 or chat from the site, explain the situation, and a replacement will be issued. There's no need to cancel orders, mark the order as a gift or otherwise. Even better, this situation has opened discussions at Amazon on re-examining how certain items, such as collectible toys, are shipped.

International Toy Fair
Now that information about Celebration Anaheim is coming out, the Probe Droid is curious if you plan on attending the biggest party of 2015...
You couldn't stop me from attending!
I'll thinking about it...
I'm waiting for more news before I decide.
I can't get involved! I've got work to do!
That's your uncle talking.
Nope. I want to but I can't make it work.
No way! Massively cool social events aren't my cup of tea.
