    went down to the local walmart today with the kids and my son like me loves the mighty realm of transforners ... saw a transformers finger board (you know those skate board things for fingers) ... so we baught the all 4 that they had at 2 bucks a pop ... when we got home and look at them a little better one of them was a spiderman board in the transformers package ... kinda cool cause of the mess up but a little sad at the same time

    Unless the packaging is clearly mint, you sir just bought a swapped out toy, as in someone bought that already, then swaped it out for a similar item (which is rare actually), and then got returned to the store.

    Augh! Toy swapping is just ridiculous. Glad you at least got a couple actual TF fingerboards though.

    I like those boards I now own all 6. I never saw a messed up package one though.

    I doubt this is the case. Toy swapping on sealed cards like this is nigh impossible to do perfectly.

    This is a glue only card I believe which is different than a normal carded TF which is glued and taped. Call me out if I'm wrong, please.

    They put out all kinds of these boards as of late. Iron man, spidey Transformers etc. It could be very possible that one got mispackaged. I have found lots of toys packged wrong or with the wrong parts. One time I bought a marvel legends with 2 right arms. A collector bought it from me for about $20 more than I paid, it may have been worth more but I was glad to get the money and a new figure! If I were you I would not open it, that would be cool to show people.

    Well at least you got 3 boards, it really sucks that some scum bag would go and swap out the board for a different one and then return it. If thats not the case and you got a rare srew up, maybe you should return it to get the last one.
