Tahat is really odd, what is that piece he has with him?

are these errors or returns???

cause the boxes are just ever so slightly different as the error has Ages 4+ on it while the original doesn't... hmmmmmm



The age 4 is on both I assure you.

On both packages you can see on the back one had scotch tape and the other had really wide packing tape. Both of these were opened and resealed.

All I can say is "REALLY?"

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

Dude, you know that error figures sell for major bucks...right? Remember the DCUC "naked" cheetah? Even if a figure is place in the wrong packaging are very collectable. I know a comic store owner in Chicago that would of given you $50 on the spot!

Why can't I find figures like these? :roll:

I used to think these were mildly amusing until I found one in my neck of the woods. Somebody had replaced a Destroyer from the Thor line with it's McDonalds counterpart, it was the first Destroyer I'd seen so I though hasbro had gotten really cheap.

Holy cow! I can hardly believe this is happening. It makes me pretty angry that scalpers n swappers make it so hard on honest collectors but I have to admit, someone making a custom just to return it to the shelf is kinda funny. It's like a knockoff Picasso duping the curators at a museum or something. I wonder how bad the problem is and what they're doing to stop it.

Once when I worked at Wal-Mart, someone returned an Original Game Boy that had a brick inside. Heh.

I found a video on You Tube a while back I meant to post about this very thing happening in Houston,TX. Link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9uYmqf7i5ps

I'd buy an new but used ML if it was a decent older figure. It'd be kind of like jumping into a time machine. :lol:

Agreed. But you know since these finds I haven't seen one since.

Funny.

There's a few stores near me where people swap in toys that looks nothing like the original figure, like putting a 3.75" Star Wars fig in a ML package.
The icing on the cake though is when I notify customer service and they look at me like I'm an idiot.

Back when legendary comic book heroes were in the stores I found a bunch of them that someone had returned and put unaltered spiderman two figures inside. What I don't understand is why go to all the work of making a halfway decent custom just to get one figure for free!
You'll be lucky if you're one of the few to find someone who can tolerate you.
