Re: Toy Aisle Trolls

Solution: Non collector friendly packaging.

While its been nice to keep boxes to store un displayed figures, its probably time for Hasbro to change up the packaging enough that one cant simply open a box and swap out BAF parts or entire figures and return them to the retailer without question. Not saying full on toybiz plastic clam shells, but there has to be another way.

I have probably seen at least one figure/BAF swap on every visit to walmart for the past 3 years. As much as I'd love to say "train employees better"...the bottom line is most of them just don't care.

I saw a Batroc at the Deer Run WM with a Thanos' arm and an instruction manual in place of Thanos' body and shoulder piece

A paper manual.... unreal.

A while back I found a Ironman Electronic Helmet box empty at Markville Walmart. Either it was returned this way or someone put it on and walked out.

Re: Toy Aisle Trolls

This was a good one from the weekend. Switched out head for the onslaught BAF and removed the hands. Agin Court mall Wal-Mart. Was also a jackal returned with a hobgoblin leg but that's far less shocking than this one.

Actually, I think the figure body and helmeted head are from an old Stealth Iron Man figure, so I guess the whole figure was swapped, but this guy couldn't be bothered to leave the hands in. Still never seen an Iron Skull in the wild at Ontario WMs.
