I looked at 35 ROTS Sneak Preview figures at the local Wally World today. Has anyone else looked closely at these?
1. Tape - The neatness of the tape application on the back and bottom of the cards varied from barely acceptable to abysmal.
2. "Sneak Preview" sticker - All 35 stickers had air bubbles under them.
3. Flash - A few had flash along the curved edge on the side of the bubble where it meets the back of the card. This is easily cured with a hobby knife, but why should we have to do it?
4. J-Hooks - These cards had literally only been on dsiplay for an hour when I looked at them. Three already had the J-hooks bent. The J-hook is a definite weak point in the design.
It appears that finding the new card style in truly excellent condition is going to be a real challenge.
