    Question about the re-released Falcon-

    Sorry if this has been asked already, but
    does the new re-released Action Fleet Millenium Falcon have the secret message inside from JKF?

    I believe only the orginal single pack had it, not the Classic Duels Falcon. I haven't seen the new one yet with the re-paint.

    Anybody open theirs up yet?

    BTW, the classic duels TRU-exclusive 2pack version definitely does NOT have the inscription.
    Darth Vader is becoming the Mickey Mouse of Star Wars.

    If anybody has the single pack Falcon I'd love to see the inscription. I've never seen it before. It'd also be nice to get a photo for my site as well but I don't plan on buying a single pack Falcon since I have a both the Classic Duels and Saga Falcon already.

    It's virtually impossible to photograph or scan IMO because it is so shallow that you can't get a shadow, and it's molded from the same light color plastic as the rest of the ship. It reads:

    Cool. Thanks for relaying what the inscription said, JT.

    I saw four X-Wing and Darth TIEs at a Walmart in Greeley today. No Falcons. Hope everyone has been successful in scoring the Falcon if they were in need.

    thanks

    cool, thanks for the info, sorry I didn't realize it was already in this same thread!

    1997! hard to believe that was 5 years ago, the original AF falcon.

    wow.

    Sure thing, glad I could help.


    I saw a couple X-wings and TIE Advanced tonight, and the BOX for a Millennium Falcon... sans the Falcon! Yeesh, what a world this is when people have to resort to petty theft for toys.

    I saw 2 x-wings and a TIE at Wal Mart today. I snagged the one good X-wing, but the TIE's box was crunched, and on one of the X-wings the laser cannon tips were bent or skewed so they diverged away from each other instead of being parallel to each other like this... < instead of this... =

    I've seen a lot of lack of inspection/Quality Control problems with these EP2s. Heck, my own X-wing has the bad landing skid!
    Prior to the EP2 stuff, I took good build quality pretty much for granted with the AF line. I can't think of ANY major defects in any of my pre-EP2 openers.

    Other than the inconsistent paint - mostly on the falcon, has anyone else seen more quality problems in the EP2 AFs than previous releases?

    I've seen a Saga (I'm not calling it "Ep 2", sorry ) Falcon that had a super loose sensor dish at its base.
