Not in Practice. Remember LeBron? Hell even with Plastic Windows we get swaps
Now Hasbro wants to go fully windowless for their Plastic Free Package. If we get weird mishaps like a Sgt. FLASH with no hands straight from the factory, how can we be OK paying for a figure, sight unseen and get a 2 left feet Luke Skywalker, an Eye on the chin Generation X Emma Frost, or worse 2 right thigh Smart Hulks... QC is incredibly awful on most figs nowafays... that's not counting what the swapper/swipers can do to them.
This is not about being "environmentally friendly" this is about cutting as much costs as possible. But this stupidity is not exclusive to Hasbro... Mattel is in on it too! Imagine having Matchbox cards inside a box where you CANNOT SEE THE CAR!!
There needs to be a better way to ensure quality product for collectors AND be "environmentally friendly". Going 100% plastic free on packaging is not the way.
The only ones who benefit from these "Environmentally Friendly" packages are scalpers and scammers. Scammers win by swapping then at Brick and Mortar stores. Scalpers win by buying them in bulk at reputable etailers and reselling online or in person.
