Re: Toy Aisle Trolls

At the ToysRUS in Surrey, BC.

LEFT: Accessories are complete
RIGHT: Sword missing, mostly likely from a return.

Even at clearance value, people still have to steal.

Re: Toy Aisle Trolls

Found these at my local Sherway gardens Wal-Mart. Stuff like this is the reason i tend to stay away from buying my figures at Wal-Mart anymore. My biggest question is what this person put in place for the baf piece...In person it looked like shredded garbage bag or napkin. What a mess.

I think "BAF pieces" were fragments of a coat from Mattel's WWE figures. The head also looks like it was from a wresting figure as well.

I saw those this morning too and had a good chuckle.

The best part was the customer service rep that scrutinized my transformers toy returns earlier in the day. My returns were never opened and the figures clearly had the little plastic ties intact yet the customer service woman reviewed the figures approximately ten times each because of all the clear tape that is used on the packaging. She kept insisting that I opened the figures and re-sealed them. Thanks for wasting my time, lol...

LOL, looks like someone got the new Deathlock and is now ditching the old toybiz figure.

Hasbro needs to figure this out, the collector friendly packaging is nice but it just leads to all sorts of "this".

Looks like the same dude strikes again at Walmart Sherway.

Saw a new ML Moon Knight missing some accessories and the baf part being substituted in a ML Wally Excl. Thanos box.

Re: Toy Aisle Trolls

I saw two Cosmic Spider-man Marvel Legends that have the unmasked human head removed. It looks like someone sliced opened the box with a cutter in the store. They were at different Walmart locations (ie. Vancouver Grandview Highway Supercentre and New Westminster Supercentre), but I am sure that it was done by the same fking guy.

Looks like the guy was still fond of the weapons from the old figure.

Re: Toy Aisle Trolls

Wal-Mart south oshawa had a kitty pryde last night with the toy biz version swapped in and the BAF part was an arnim Zola leg. My gf gave it to one of the employees explaining the situation but it wouldn't surprise me to See the figure back on the pegs next time I'm at the store.

Saddest part is they had some figures marked down to $10 and someone bought this and then returned it...the store finally decided to clear out old stock at a fair price and some jerk still pulled a fast one.

Re: Toy Aisle Trolls

I was at the Aurora Walmart yesterday night and found this Antman and the Wasp figure on the Clearance aisle but it seem out of place. I took a double take and noticed that the figure had been swapped out for an older wasp fig. Don't understand how Walmart could be so blind in returns. Guess they don't know or just don't care as long as there is a figure inside the box during the returns. Sadly somebody buying this will not get the right figure.
