Damn I hate errors like this. I've been searching and searching for Lando Skiff, so when I finally found him on Friday, of course he had no vibro-axe in the bubble - I'm a major accessories fan too so this was very disappointing. The bubble definitely hasn't been tampered with, it's a factory error, so I guess I'm going to hang onto it until I find a proper Lando Skiff and then exchange it. I really hate owning figures I can't open though.
Anyway, if anybody's interested, I can take a couple photos.
