    Well, you got a better toy, IMHO. Why someone would swap a Thundercracker for a Grimlock is beyond me, assuming this was done by someone doing a swap and not some bizarre factory mistake.

    How the hell did that get past you!?!?!? :D 

    Grimlock is a great toy. Hopefully, you don't already have him.

    I'm calling 'factory mistake' as opposed to 'toy swapper' on that one.

    Ok...why, after seeing the pic, do I get some "Toy Story"-ish idea in my head that Grimlock was determined to NOT stay at that store, no matter the cost...so he hijacks Skywarp's box at the very second someone is about to pick it up? "Me Grimlock no want TJ Maxx, me Grimlock want go home Buddha!"

    Well... this is what happened.. I work for Jetblue as an Inventory Auditor.. I had just literally gotten off the plane after a 60 hour work week in California.. Flew back to New York. Went to TJ MAXX with the little lady and was half in a daze when she handed me Skywarp.. i said AWESOME, zombified me didn't think to take the time to check it out.. lol.

    So yeah it's fail on both me and the silly chinese. :D 

    But i do like the toy storyish idea.. Like he killed skywarp buried him in the lady garments section, then jumped on it to be adopted by my girl and i... ahhh imagination! lol

    Grimlock and Shockwave are the two Animated toys I chose to keep and not sell, so I think you made out.

    That reminds me of The Simpsons episode "Bart the Mother" where Nelson invites Bart over to shoot off a BB gun. When Bart uses it and accidentally kills a bird, Bart feels guilty and decides to nurse the two orphaned eggs. When they hatch, the eggs are found to be lizards.

    I think that was a win-win... if it was Grimlock or Skywarp. Although, I'd lean towards Grimmy. lol

    Maybe the swap is why it was on discount at TJ....?

    Either a factory screwup (wouldn't be the first time, not by a very loooooong shot), or a toy-swapper. But it could have been worse. It could have been Classics Grimlock in there instead of Animated.
