    I just went to Toys'R'us in Laguna, CA and found out someone took out the Human Alliance Bumblebee and return it with the Deluxe Class Cannon Bumblebee.

    Not news.

    Try finding one of the 300 "toy swappers suck!" threads in the Toy Forum.

    What are these people made of?

    I found a Star Wars Legacy Kashyyyk Trooper that was carefully opened package then swapped with a hoth Speeder Biker at a local TRU. I was so pissed.

    It seems this kind of technique got spreaded so fast.

    wow, I always hear about people swapping out toys but I never see any pics :lol  Actually besides the figure being much smaller, I think someone could mistake this for the real thing

    This really is a case of both asshole-ness and pure stupidity. Idc if the employees don't have interest in the stuff that's on the shelves, but a deluxe sitting in a box that's bigger than it and sam combined is pretty much a really big give away. I know the box is big enough to accomidate the 2 as is, but seriously, open your frealin eyes tru employees!

    Exactly. Some kid out with his mom who knows dick about TF's picks up this shit, takes it home, after overpaying for a toy and gets screwed over. Yeah. What a douche.

    I'm sure you'll just be laughing your ass off when you finally find the figure you've been searching for, only to find it's the wrong figure. I know we'll be laughing. And pointing.

    It's not just a simple swap. It's shoplifting too. Swapping an item of lower price for a higher priced item is the same as ticket switching, which is shoplifting.

    Toys R Us should be ashamed of themselves for letting such an obvious theft slip past them.

    I told the employees overthere about it...they were surprised. Don't call me snitchin' but that just wrong that they be swapping TFs and think they can get away with it.
