    I had this idea for a thread after getting tired of seeing these in stores. Share your finds here! I spotted this one at Walmart.

    What's strange is that I have never seen one of these in person, just damaged or opened boxes. Honestly, I find this kinda funny instead of annoying. Kinda.

    The only one I have ever saw was actually recently some one returned a deluxe aoe scorn in the tlk voyager box at the local Walmart.

    Maybe wait until the "supposed" figure is no longer current by a line or two, so as not to give these a-holes attention?

    The word your looking for is Toy Swapping. Repacks refer to figures from previous assortments being re-rereleased in new assortments.

    Anyways, fantastic idea. Nothing beats the ROTF Soundwave Tomatos or the hornests nest(which I can’t find pictures of for whatever reason?)

    EDIT: lol

    Still not as good as Tomatowave.

    I think I'd rather have the crossover figure.

    The last swap I saw was TLK Slash replaced with the one-step from AOE at a Walmart.
    Haven't really seen any truly horrible ones.

    Found all 3 of these at the same walmart in ohio recently. Pointed them out to management and they still made it back onto the shelves somehow. 1 of them actually has a g1 mindwipe inside, but a bit messed up.

    Someone swapped out a Quickswitch for a Sixshot at my local Walmart. That was a head scratcher.

    The people who do this are borderline sociopaths ... and yet I still find it hilarious.

    Walmart truly is the worst.

    Haven't come across any myself, but someone did post a pic of a TLK Barricade box with half an AOE Evasion Mode Optimus Prime inside it somewhere around here.

    And another use of the term used to be "older toy shipping again in different packaging but without any apparent changes to the toy itself".

    This could be either a toy that was originally sold alone being made available as part of a multi-pack, or an unchanged toy rebranded as part of a different line or sub-line.

    I would honestly have sprung for that one, if the staff allowed.
    My only experiences include a GDO Swerve split open with what looked like an RTS Windcharger inside, a backwards TLK Barricade with no wrist gun but two pistols and something to do with MV1 stuff. i'm thinking Bumblebee variants, but it has been a while.

    I would totally buy that if it included the headmaster.
