    So I went to Walmart today and found one for my personal collection. As I transform him I noticed this gigantic crack on his chest. Jacked up right. That's not even the best part. He didn't come with instructions. I heard thats normal but come on $13 of pure crap. Can hasbro replace my toy? Walmart won't take it back because it been opened

    Since when?

    Wal-Mart's had the reputation of taking back anything.

    Even painted wooden blocks in the place of actual Transformers...


    Unless you didn't keep the packaging...

    I totally misread this and though that a Hasbro rep took the animated wreck-gar from you AT Botcon this year. Like they just walked up to you and said "I'll take that!" and then ran off into the crowd yelling "Hahaha you'll never find him here!"

    Walmart will take it back. If some random clerk tells you that, ask for a manager. They'll take it back.

    Hasbro will take it, but you'll get a "figure of equal value", meaning any random deluxe figure.

    That's the first I've heard of instructions missing.

    yeah hasblo sucks i told them i wasn't hunting for the same figure if they couldn't replace the exact figure so they told me they would send me the right one without sending the old one back first and ended up with the first edition version from them nice but not what I wanted.

    Double bullshit. Walmart took my opened Arcee back.

    Show a manager the problem and your receipt. Should make it work out.

    Are you saying they sent you a first edition vehicon, or some other first edition figure? If you're saying Hasbro sent you a first edition vehicon, then that's kind of impossible. Hasbro US has no first edition vehicons to give to anyone.

    thats what I thought it was about.

    Anyways just keep it and say he's "battle damaged." It's not like you'll be finding another anytime soon.

    Yelling at Hasbro will get you nothing. And even if you don't yell, unless you're incredibly lucky you'll not get a Vehicon sent back if you do send your faulty one to them. That's not how it works.

    Just return it to Walmart. If they don't have another Vehicon to swap it for them you'll just have to chalk it up to life and the unfairness of it.
