It happened again!

Postby brushlessmcpx » Mon Sep 17, 2012 9:06 pm

I will let the picture speak for itself!

All I can say is "REALLY?"

And yes, I took the figure and gave it to an employee to be taken off the floor.

Well the one way of selling a custom LoL !
I saw a Marvel Universe frost giant in a clearance section of a walmart a while back and I picked it up and took a look and it was the old toy biz 1990's 10 inch sabretooth and you could tell it was a returned package off the bat . But it was just funny.

Yeah it does. The camera flash is just blocking it. These are 99% likely returns. Happens all the time with wrestling toys. People buy the new mattel ones aandtake the belt sometimes replacing it with old crappy jakks belts. Sometimes replacing the entire figure with a jakks figure

So lemme get this straight, people buy the figure, take it out, and then put a lesser quality custom in there and get their money back so they basically get the figure for free?

yup. Or they will just take the build a figure piece and put nothing with it because they know the cashier are too dumb/uninterested to pay attention. Heck I play a card game called yugioh and they have video games, the games come with cards sometimes the cards are worth 10,20,30 dollars so they buy the game take the cards and exchange the "defective" game for another copy with more cards and they keep repeating it

i saw a TRU xfactor back that had a gladiator instead of an angel, a different ice man, and the MU apoc. such a monkey move. why would you want the new shitt cap anyway? i'd raher have the mr fantastic for his sweet bum parts.
to their credit tho the paint job looks solid! i worked at a kb before, they took anything back no matter how beat up the package.
