Shaken, Not Stirred: The BS Bubble Issue

You’ve read reports that the The Black Series 3-3/4″ line has an issue with the bubbles not being fully adhered to their respective card backs. Here is a video I shot this morning at my local Target. Do not try this in the store. 

 

(Note: I bought this figure afterward)

    Ok, I know I shouldn’t laugh, but damn, that is funny!!!!!

    Wow… How did this get past Quality Control?

    • Rykrof_Enloe

      I’ve been wondering that about their Phase 2 clone helmets for a while too!

    Hasbro have really lost the plot.

    Glue prices have skyrocketed

    Maybe the people in quality control were some of the people who were sacked, too many questions lol.

    LOL for those of you like myself who cut the bubble off carefully with a box cutter or whatever and keep the cardback, that’ll save you some time!

      My stack is about 14 inches high. I use an X-acto.

        At first I was storing them in a clear Sterlite box with the snap-on lid and handle but that one is so full, I couldn’t fit another cardback. So I had to switch to one of those flat “under bed storage” containers with about 3X more room than the carry box.

        I don’t know if I’ll continue it but with the Clone Wars cardbacks, I was using the hole-puncher for a 3-ring binder so you could flip through them in order of figure #. With all I’ve accumulated over the past 5ish years, that’ll be a project best set aside for a snow day when I’m bored outta my mind.

        The plastic bubbles all goes into the recycle bin. All it takes is five minutes of Hoarders until I freak out and go on a recycling binge. Luckily for everyone around me, I don’t take recycling to the Beverly Sutphin level LOL!!

        JUST the part about “WEAR. YOUR. SEATBELT!! IT’S THE LAW!!!”

    I bought an R4 P17 saga legends fig and the bubble had been STAPLED to the card. I double and triple checked to make sure it wasn’t swapped before buying it.
