So I got the new Amazon Exclusive Vintage Collection TIE Interceptor here, and the big question I've been hearing - a lot - is "is it different?" The answer is yes, actually - the plastic color is different enough from other movie versions of the ship to be notable, so let's find out more.
It's here! Amazon's TIE Interceptor is in stock and ready to ship right now, with many orders having processed and gone out the door. It's similar to a previously-released model, with a few minor deco differences and a new box. How different is it?
Were you waiting on the Hasbro Star Wars Amazon Exclusive Slave I? Well... uh... it looks like it's going through some more drama. Also, the TIE Interceptor had a price cut of a few bucks - you may wish to call Amazon to change your order. Want to know more? Or would you like the phone number? Sure ya would. Read on!
After almost a year of waiting since it was teased at Celebration VI in Orlando last year, we finally started to get our Amazon exclusive The Vintage Collection jumbo Slave I vehicle. It's 20-inches long, almost 50% bigger than the previous releases of Boba's vehicle, and has more features than ever. One of these features is a rotating wings and a gravity-centered pilot's station inside the cockpit, and in the 2010 The Clone Wars Rise of Boba Fett Battle Pack it worked great. This new version needs some work - a bad spring prevents things from locking properly. Want to fix it? Go get a Phillips head screwdriver, an old clicky pen, and read on.
A few of you have written in because your Amazon Exclusive The Vintage Collection Boba Fett's Slave I vehicle has arrived! But here's the thing - some of them are showing up in a nice Hasbro-made white mailer box, and others, well, aren't.
UPDATE: I added some comments about an errant spring and how you can fix it with a pen and a screwdriver and just a dash of gumption.
Today's the day - and it's early! The Amazon Exclusive Boba Fett's Slave I is in stock now, for all of you 3 3/4-inch action figure fans. This is the larger mold of the ship, which is modeled after the 2010 The Clone Wars version of the vehicle sold at Toys R Us. Click here to order yours, or if you already did, it's probably shipping to you today or tomorrow. A few more notes after the jump.
