EaW Poor quality control?

Recommended Posts

Never had any issues with di for Awakenings or SoR. This time round though I am seeing loads of faults on dice.

 

White flecks of missing colour. Cracking clear sections in the main colour of dice. Then I have noticed my second hounds tooth doesn't appear to have the protective coating on the di, I go to rub what look like a bit of fluff/paper off one of the sides and a quarter of the deal comes away...

Bit disappointing. More so because it is a legendary and FFG will send out a random booster for the fault... glad it isn't something more expensive like an ancient lightsaber!

I know for sure that the larger box hasn't helped with the cards. Of my 4 boxes that I have opened and 2 of those boxes have had quite a few packs with majorly warped cards in them. I never opened a pack in the earlier sets with any issues with the cards.

I had two dice defects in SoR (Force Speed + Vibroknife). FS was the plastic of the dice was missing a chunk, which was printed over. The vibroknife was like some flecks between the print and the dice caused the print to blister off small parts.

In EaW, my friend has a pregnant A280 on one side (not sure what he is expecting) and my Kanan has the early stages of middle-age bloat all over.

I got a warped Darth Vader die from the first set. Wasn't real keen on the idea of  a booster pack for it. I figure I'll give it to a kid at the local store one day.  They will just be happy to have one.

Well im guess im some kind of lucky cause after opening 2 boxes, and shtload of boosters im yet to find any faulty dice. But i have seen one vader's dice that is warped true. Guess its just a normal random thing, shame the replacement is just a random booster. But if thats just a minor crack, or misprint i would not bother and play it normal.

You weren't keen on the idea of a free booster pack? ... What? You don't have to send them the damaged dice.

I'll give it to a kid and he'll  enjoy it for years. Sounds better than a 3 dollar booster

I'm not sure it is any worse. My first box of Awakenings had a die with a big hole in the middle of one of the die faces on my first Survival Gear, which is kinda sad as I do like that card. But was also happy because the replacement booster I was sent had a Holdout Blaster... so all was good.

I've had no further problems so far.
(Aside from getting the same 3 legendaries in each of my 3 boxes... do we know if they do r1 / r2s and l1/l2s? Cause this was ludicrous... no one wants 3x LR1Ks.)
