I just received my SDCC Destro Legacy set in the mail today. It's factory sealed. I popped the tape on the outer box myself, and it definitely hadn't been tampered with.
I crack the book open, and after gasping and various "Oohs" and "Aahs," I slide the figures out. They come in retaining boxes that slide into the book. These retaining boxes have a rubber band on each corner to hold the cardback in place.
Now, evidently what happened is whoever packed mine at the factory just kind of jammed the cardback into the box to get it in there with the rubber bands. The cardbacks are warped and creased all to hell.
I'm normally an opener, but this is a REALLY nice set, and I wanted to keep it MOC. So, anyone else have this problem?

No, I had a friend snag me one from the Con. But still, I trust him, and like I said, I could tell it was still factory sealed. Just want to see if this is a common problem.

I've opened 1 of the sets I picked up from the Con and while it did have some warping, overall, the cards were in decent shape...
I may open other, but I'm not sure yet...

habro isnt known for there commitment to detail when it comes to shipping. i remember during the sdcc destro fiasco 2 yrs ago them tossing the carded destros with only a couple air bags and that was it. alot of people got there gold and silver head destro dinged and bent. so a bent card on this set just doesnt surprise me one bit.
check out my store for great deals
