    How many people expect someone to return the new leader class prime with the old leader prime in the box. I was thinking about this earlier and was hoping no one would be that low.

    hopefully the stores aren't that stupid. Then again most places can't tell you Megatron from Cliffjumper.

    It's going to happen and someone will post a cell-phone picture of it here talking about how disgusted they are with their fellow TF collectors. It's definitely a crap thing to do, but we're never going to be able to stop it. Stores like Wal-Mart and Target don't pay attention to the actual figure in the package because the people working the returns are typically not collectors. If the barcode matches something in the system and you have your receipt, you'll get away with it.

    thats true. Most hourly employees at the big box stores will just tell you to "go get another one". They would not have any idea. *****very bad Karma to anyone who does that.******

    People get away with this because the retards at the return station are to f'n stupid to actually LOOK and see if the toy is grossly misshaped for the box. It takes like 2 seconds. No collectors required.

    With any luck, maybe since the TF1 Prime has some much more bulk and kibble, he will not be able to fit in the plastic tray section of the ROTF box.

    I can hope... but I think I'll see this happen a few times.

    It's inevitably going to happen, I jus thope I never encounter it. It's also probably going to happen with Starscream and Ironhide (though probably to a lesser extent with Ironhide). It's really sad that people are able to get away with it, especially when the stores (almost always Walmart) do nothing about it.

    It diffinetly isn't the right thing to do. And more than likely unless we all get jobs as customer service/returns people at walmart and target, it will happen. But i got other things to do with my time than worry about it.

    I can't spell deffinitly...i know. I'm too lazy to look it up.

    I plan on buying the new leader prime. I will display the new leader prime in robot mode and display my old leader prime in truck mode.

    It'll happen. Though it is stealing and wrong, it'll happen. Man, with this and the fact that Devastator will warm the shelf, this really may be the end for hasbro.

    If I ever see someone do this, or meet someone who has admitted to doing it...I'll have to hurt them.
