    I went to Target today looking for any new Star Wars or Transformers figures. In the TF section, Devastator caught my eye. Something seemed off. I picked it up and things were loose. Then I noticed that Devastator's head was actually the RPM Devastator head! Someone swiped Mixmaster and Scavenger and replaced it with the the RPM head. They did a shitty job of it too because the top plastic part of the box was ripped because the head is too tall.

    I took the box to the cashier in the back of the store. I would hate for some parent or grandma to buy that as a gift not knowing something is wrong.

    A couple of weeks ago, at another Target, someone also ripped off some 4 pack X-men Heroes figures. What caught my eye was that one of them was a Ninja Turtle character. Then I noticed that there were only 2 figures in the package instead to 4. Then I found another box hidden behind that one with the same thing. 2 out of 4 in the box.

    Whoever did that took the plastic insert out and just twist tied the two figures centered.

    This proves that it happens outside of Walmarts as well.

    To be fair, he'd still be upset when he opened the box, even if it was the right figure.
