Just went to Target here in Burbank, CA. I found something so bizarre, that I have to get some answers. I found about 8 gold carded figs saga/OT: Han Solo with Endor Cape (his arms camouflaged, but the cape is removeable- really lame), Han Flight from Alderaan, General Lando, Lando Jabba's Skiff, Lando (blue muscle shirt), R2-D2 (basic, no accessories other than the new flat stand): None of them had the decals on the bubble that identify the character/with photo. Just a giant bubble. What kind of f*#$-up is this? :crazed:

I didn't buy the figures (I don't collect errors). And I didn't have a camera with me. Believe me, I'd rather post a pic than try to describe this situation.

you don't collect errors?! Well i don't either but if i find some at a cheap price, i see that as money in the bank.

I collect for fun, not profit- I haven no intention of selling my stuff, and I don't buy multiple same figs at the store when I know other people are looking for them.

to each his/her own. I understand your view, I just have another. I just can't pass up things that are different. Just like my darth maul that i bought(with the unpainted chest), I love it!

It sounds like either you are pulling our legs or someone returned some bad custom carded figures to get their money back.:nerv:

I'm not making this up- I've never heard of people returning "customs". I'll see if they are still there tonight and try to snap some pix. I looked to see if the bubbles had been re-attached (as if someone returned old POTF figs in new cards), but they looked pretty convincing. The only thing really wrong was the missing decals on the front.

I checked Target again tonight, and those odd figs were gone (once again, I didn't make this up). I did look back at the POTF Han Solo with Endor Cape accessory, and that was the same fig I saw on a blue card. Anyway, I found a Deluxe Jabba, so I came out a winner anyway. My apologies for not getting any photos.

Some A-hole bought some new figures and then returned some old stuff that he resealed to get his money back for the new ones. The strange thing is, I live in Burbank CA and go to that Target almost everyday and didn't see these. Maybe someone told customer service and they took them off the pegs.
