I found this posted on another TF board...
I've cought it happening a few times, and I've kicked it back to the appropriate departments.
Aaaand they wind up back on the shelves. Stupid. I tried to tell them.
But I have to say that this type of... mistake... can happen at any retail with a return desk.
What the other figure anyway...
Inferno, from the Energon line.
Talk about being re-formatted...cyclonus is looking a little red these days....
Isn't Inferno more expensive than the BiS set?
its bad enough this happens and there are assholes out there that do this. karma is a bitch though.
what is worse is that even if you tell a worker it ends up on the shelf. i mean yeah maybe it is not there job to care, but as a business it is as that is obviously not the correct product and a parent may not know or someone else.
i once went to a target and saw a tftm leader prime in a rotf prime box and told the girl and said oh wow thanks and placed it right back on the shelf in front of me. i called her an idiot and left.
but then i did see not to long ago at a kohls someone stole all the minicons out of the PCC 2 packs which pissed me off as I finally found some new CONS with no minicons. I told someone and they were really pissed off. The had to get a cart to put them all in because they were now open and missing a piece.
If I didn't still have my Energon Inferno, I'd totally pick that up just for the Rodimus and Inferno.
Product and colors may vary....
Energon Inferno? Surely not.
Really? I swear I saw him for $50 on BBTS one time...
Damn Wal Mart. Only place were I have seen this.
I'd be desperate enough to buy it. Mostly because I haven't seen a single set around here at all.
I haven't seen this kinda stuff going on around our town.. I dunno if I just have bad timing or what.. if hasbro was thinking they would sell targetmasters on HTS, they could make some cheese that way
Wow... didn't even try swapping with the Universe Cyclonus. Just dove straight into the ridiculous.
If he is complete, he usually sells on eBay for $10.
I saw this actual set on my way to work today. This swapped wonder is at the Walmart in Exton, PA. I ended up PM'ing the original poster to ask if he was from around there, but I didn't see his first line about how he found the pic on another board.
It certainly was a shocker finding the pic on the boards considering I just saw it today. I also debated buying it...another board member I am friends with skipped Inferno back in the day, and I'd take another Rodimus. Maybe if I go back out...
That same Walmart has a G.I.Joe Mech Suit missing the figure, an empty box belonging to a G.I.Joe bravo class vehicle, and two Human Alliance figures with no plastic cover and missing the human figures. It's the crappiest Walmart ever.
These people amuse me.
Some a-hole musta really needed that twenty bucks.
I dunno, but he's pretty lousy
