    so, i went to walmart yesterday, and to my shock and surprise i found alternator rumble...i was stoked...i reach down to pick him up, and notice he's moving around inside the bubble...then i realize that someone had apparently bought him, cut him out of the box (by cutting the tape on the bottom, then cutting inside of the bubble from the underside) Tf'd him, then put him back in the box and returned him....and walmart took it...with not directions either....and i didnt see his weapons, though i really dont know where they would be either....walmart didnt even tape it back up...i coulda just opened the box and put him in my pocket....i hate people....you shouldnt be able to return something just because you didnt like it after you've opened it.....i hate people....

    Sure you should, but you should at least TRY to seal it back up properly.

    No worries, people hate you too. <-- just joking

    If the box was kind of damaged, you may have been able to get a discount. The weapons are in the trunk and under the hood, so they may still be there, I'd want to check to see before I bought it.

    As far as instructions, Rumble isnt all that complicated, so they arent all that necesarry.

    And make sure everything it came with is back in the box.

    EDIT: Nevermind. Sy-Rein beat me to it.

    There really needs to be a thread for theiving TFs, but it'd get kicked out for promoting bad stuff.

    I can buy no good Tfsin my area, all they're selling are some Classics, Titanium, and Cyb, but it's all the same characters, no ofthe ones I really would like spendin' money on. <SigH> You should've bought the damn thing and taken the discount, or stolen it

    While it is a bit unsavory for an individual to do something like that, your ill feelings should really be directed towards Wal-mart in this case. Not only are they the one's in this instance who chose to take this item back in this condition but also the one's who decided to put it back on the shelf for sale in that condition.

    there's nothing wrong with returning a tf. Maybe a parent got it for there kid, and the child either a) didn't want it or b) already had the same thing. I'd return something in a heartbeat if it didn't live up to my expectations. It's not clothing or magazines.

    Me, I hate people who, oh, I don't know, kill and rape the weak. Especially when they do it in that order.

    Not resealing returned Transformers? Well, if that's the worst you have to deal with, I think you should have unconditional love for everyone around you.

    That was certainly justified.

    My Rumble was sealed and had no directions. I figured it out. They did have a richochet that was in a questionable state though.

    oh, dont get me wrong, squirrelcar, i hate those bastards too...and i hate walmart as well....which is why its so unfortunate for me when they get exclusives in.....and i doubt a parent bought it, and took the care to open it from the underside....and i think i am mostly bummed because i got so excited, but im not about to buy a opened toy from a huge retailer....my LCS, sure...but not walmart....so now the waiting game continues....

    oh, and i doubt i need the instructions, but i like to have them when i can, especially when i sell them....Tfs in my store sell quicker when they have instructions.....so i just keep them in case i ever decide to sell....

    I think there was a thread about this a few months ago, but with similar ill will towards the folks at Wal-Mart. There isn't much of a quality service component to product return; they seem to take back just about anything that remotely resembles a product in its appropriate box. There was some picture of a Power Ranger shoved into a Cybertron Metroplex box that had been restocked in the toy section.

    Yeah. Those Wal-Mart folks sure are attentive!

    Does anybody else hit Wal-mart while they are restocking, open the box and take it right to the cash wrap?

    Works every time.

    Very informative, I wish I had partaken.

    *copy paste* If I ever get so desperate I'll know what to turn to :ev: 

    And the topic has shifted towards that cancer, Wal-mart sucks but gotta shop there for the prices. And it's the only place that deserves to be theived from yet actually has the damn military stationed in its parking lot. But most times when the alarms go off the people juz keep walking

    I tried that once with a damaged Silverstreak, box was F'd up and it looked like one of the doors was screwed up.

    Walmart FLAT OUT REFUSED to give me a discount on it. :mad
