    This isn't news...

    WalMart takes a lot of returns... Look for the 'blackout variant' thingy in the toyark

    wow, that's sad, but funny at the same time, lol. Oh, and this isn't news, or a rumor for that matter. The Toyark is more suitable for this.

    Happens all the time. I used to see Star Wars toys at Wal-Mart that had been repackaged with those CORPS figures

    It really takes a retarded "fan" (I don't think idiots like that can qualify as fans) to do such a swap. I so wish I would witness one trying to return that kind of stuff.

    Sad thing is, them things probably have a better transformation/bot mode than the real Scorponok.

    Its still AWESOME that walmart takes anything back, in case you accidentally break a transformer, scratch the paint, find a defect, etc. But its good if you tell them that its defective instead of just letting them resell it like that....

    Walmart's good with returns but they've got some real idiots working the counter if they don't check it at all. How hard is it to tell them "when toys are returned, check the back of the package to see if it looks right", otherwise you're basically making a completely legal and unpunished way to shoplift from the store.
