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.

With the Amazon Vintage Collection Slave I shipping, many collectors may have their hopes dashed when they open the door to find that it is being sent out without shipping box! Here's hoping that this image sent to us by Rebelscum reader Tim from Ellicott City, MD is a one off mistake and we aren't looking at the standard shipping procedure for this piece.

Now that you've seen the prototypes of Hot Toys' upcoming Movie Masterpiece Series MMS261 Han Solo and MMS262 Chewbacca 1/6 scale figures, our ever inquisitive Probe Droid is tasked to find out whether you are going to collect the line.
Hot Toys had me at "Hello There"
1/6 scale collecting has just lept forward. I'm in!
I hope the actual products are better than the prototypes, and if they are I'm interested in collecting this line.
This will be my first venture into the realm of 1/6 scale collecting...
I'm a 1/6 scale collector, but I'm not interested.
I'm not a 1/6 scale collector, so no, I won't get into this line (yet).
