    I been a victim of re-packer in Walmart in La Calle 14, Ponce.

    Someone returned a Human Alliance Bumblebee without a head, probably the purpose for custom or something. I bought it and now I have an headless Bumblebee with a Shia Lebuff action figure. Great. I freaking hate re-packers!

    The missile was also missing but paying full price for this really bothers me. For the life of me I can't find the receipt.

    Man, that sucks. I hate it when you can't tell when it's in the box. I hope you find your receipt.

    I just found the receipt in the car. I'm going tomorrow morning. See if at least I can get my money back or get Barricade instead I didn't see any other Bumblebee. The other Walmart had one missing the Sam Witwicky figure that's why I went to the other Walmart farther away from my house.

    I recently began collecting Human Alliance as I got a Skids for 5 bucks on Ebay. Which made appreciate the line a bit. To my surprise that happened. A shame too the figure itself looks great and sturdy I might see the definite Movie Bumblebee figure.

    At least the repackagers around my parts are dumber than rocks. They can't even put stuff back fully transformed 99% of the time. The other 1 %, the managed to barely get it, and they put the figure back in backwards or upside down. Plain and simple, obvious.

    I actually have an HA head if you want to frankenstein yourself that one together, got it in a misc lot of heads for customizing. See if they will give you a discount or something. Tell them you want it for about a head shy of $10.00 :)

    Well to late I got my money back.

    However I'm planning in getting it in the near future. I just don't want to drop 40 dollars for an alternator size figure. I saw Bumblebee at K-mart but 40 bucks, but is to much.

    I just got into buying the movie figures. I got for 30 bucks leader Prime an is awesome. Also got HA skids loose for 5 bucks on ebay. I figure why not buy BB as he looked great.

    I have seen WAY too many repackages/toy swaps.

    It's sickening.

    That really stinks, but maybe you could customize the sam figure to become a headmaster of sorts for BB? Just a thought.
