The toy itself, is nicely done. Bought 3 Twilight Barbies, all came in same shipping box. (Edward, Emmitt, Esme) for a Christmas gift.
Exterior of shipping box was fine. Each and every Barbie box inside was dinged and the clear plastic on them was scratched with clear scuff marks on front and sides. Showed no care at all in handling these. Looked like boxes were rubbed and slid together across a sidewalk. I was embarrassed when I gave the collector these Barbies. I had no time to return them, but I shouldn't have had too.
I am a Prime member so I tend to look for sellers with Prime. Unfortunatly, Amazon is careless when it comes to collectible figures.
I have made multiple Barbie/DC action figure purchases through Prime with same result; serious scuffs and bent boxes. Unfortunately, I will not purchase any items fulfilled by Amazon for future collectibles. If you want your items in a collectible state, I recommend NOT going with orders filled by Amazon.
Select a reputable seller from the seller list that knows how to handle and ship in an appropriate box. I have been burned multiple times, so I have come to expect it.
Sorry, this review focused on orders fulfilled by Amazon. The Barbie itself, inside the packaging, is nicely done.
If you are going to:
Not open the box: go with a reputable seller
Open the box: Amazon is fine
Give as a gift: Reputable seller
It's upsetting when you pay for Prime but can't use it for collectibles because they either don't use care in handling or stuff the item in a box that is too small.
Prime gives you speed, not care.
I have learned.
(I will be attaching this review to the other items, so you may see this more than once.)
