    I was at ToyRUs today to return my Sentinel Prime for a better one (My Sentinel Prime's side panels and top kept popping out no matter how hard I pushed the pegs into the holes, but my new one works like a charm) until there was this customer trying to return an ultimate Bumblebee (the one from 2007). The clerk at the counter would not return it because it was a discontinued item. The Customer was so mad the he demanded to speak to the manager. The Manager said the same thing that they can't take it back because it was a discontinued. The customer was so mad he yelled all over the store are started throwing toys at the employees and say, "I Want My Money Back, Give Me Back My F..... Money." next thing happen, they called mall security. They tried talking to him, but he threw a big tantrum and started yelling at the security guards. Eventually they dragged him out of the store with no refund. Let me tell you that man was scarier than the Beast from Disney's Beauty and the Beast or scarier than my dad. Have you ever tried to return a discontinued Transformer or any other toys they don't make anymore?

    Seriously? After it being out for 4 years? The guy's an idiot for thinking he could get away with it.

    Nope. Never. I've never even really returned a transformer period... unless it was broken or if I broke it.

    I would've loved to see that.

    The only transformer I've ever returned was PCC Double Clutch because it was a piece of shit.

    Not only discontinued, but the manager could have also argued that it was about 4 years past the 90 day return policy.

    I love when I see a ridiculously upset customer. I try to hang close and make as many comments about asshole-ish customers as possible. It's way cheaper than therapy and insanely more enjoyable.

    I've heard of that before. Someone who put the TFTM deluxe Jazz in the Human Alliance package and would return it. Still a douche bag move, but better than screaming like a 12 year old girl in front of the whole store.

    Don't ask what kind of toy it was. All I'll say is that no one got hurt.
