    Walmart employees who are trained to believe that the customer is always right and never question them.

    I just came to the United States recently and didn't know that such a phenomenon existed before. That's because back in my country, customers rarely can return bought items. So I searched Tfwiki to find out more.

    Wow, never knew some collectors could be so EVIL. Supreme Cheetor for Devastator? That's low.

    With these stories you always have to wonder what is sadder? That people are such low life scum that they don't care what they are doing is stealing, or that stores care so little they will put the stuff back out on the shelves.

    The only way to get it off the shelves permanently is to say it was broken (helps if it is actually broken too). Then they'll sent it back to Hasbro.

    At my local Walmart, I've seen a Deluxe Jolt package with a KO Gi Joe figure inside. Cheesed me off because I was looking for Jolt at the time.

    Guys, every time someone makes a thread on this, it's locked, or at least under heavy scrutiny by the mods. I'd keep it civil if I were you.

    I saw a black Hot Wheels car wired into a 07 movie Voyager Ironhide box at Wal-Mart. Very sad.

    I haven't seen much toy swapping where I shop, the only one I've seen recently was a regular preview BB in a HA BB package.

    Not the worst, but I saw a SW Crossover mixup.

    Magnaguard inside of a Luke Skywalker box. Very much clear that that was NOT Luke Skywalker.

    The weird thing was, it looked like a packaging mistake rather than a repack. I took a picture which I might post later on ;) .
