    Ok, not sure if one of these have been posted or this is the right board or not. But found this today at Walmart in Houston, what the hell is this?? The name says Blackout, the box say Backout, but what is this green spaceship?

    Lemme' clue you in here, you've purchased a Cybertron Jetfire, sans wings, that some jerk put in the box of Blackout after he bought him and returned him, basically getting a free Blackout. Sorry to disappoint, I know it sucks. :eek: 

    Also, I take back the 'rape' comment. I was just pissed, and no one deserves that. But they still deserve some jail time, that's for damn sure.

    It seem to be factory sealed, so this is just a mstake or something? I was surprised to see this sitting on the shelf, at first I though it was a new release, until I saw the name.

    Chipandchris, you got ripped off. You bought a swapped toy. Someone bought a real Blackout, took it out, put an older toy in the box and returned it. You need to take this back to the store as soon as possible and get your money back. Pics of the real Blackout are available elsewhere on this site.

    Wonder if they will catch the error when you bring it back.

    Is it definitely not a mistake. Someone took the wings off Cybertron Jetfire and put him in the box of Blackout. Your box is not factory sealed. I know you think it's somethinig rare, but it's not please go get your money back and tell an employee about this so they can send it back.

    Exactly. Explain the situation to the store and they're OBLIGATED to give you a refund. Buy and beware doesn't apply here, don't take 'no' for an answer, they're legally bound to give you your money back.

    What does that say about your store? "Hmm, the picture on every side of the box is of a blue-gray helicopter, and there's a green spaceship inside, seems on the up-and-up, sure, you can return it"


    Good luck returning it. "This isn't the toy that was supposed to be in the box, I paid for it and went home with it and brought it back because the toy isn't the same"

    Please if they employees were to question it, they would get crap from teh managers. That is what used to happen to me. I worked Lingerie at JC Penneys. People would return bras that obviously worn, sweat stains and smell of perfume. I would say "umm let me ask my manager" and sure enough, she would have me give the person back store credit.
