Is this in Australia?
at least its the same character and mold i guess
not a repack but.....looks like they were caught in the act or something?
Guess so. It's even funnier since Thanos is getting a release in a 3-pack with Iron Man and Dr. Strange now.
Yep, that’s someone getting ready to shoplift the whole thing and the coward got spooked. If you’re going to be scum try not to be a pussy about it.
I know right? Here's the thing....why effin put it together...... just take the parts and pocket them dumb@$$. I kind of feel like it was a "kid" just messing around. I work at that store and have at least got to humiliate or thwart thieves like that in the past. However there are times I literally watch ppl take things out the door and load it in their vehicle not paying for it. Nothing I can do, that blue vest isn't bullet proof and it's against policy, so smell you later. I did LMFAO when a rather large girl ran out the fire exit with a laundry basket full of junk to a waiting car....she couldn't even get in the car her pants were falling down, full moon, and every time the driver tried to speed off she almost flew out of the car door...did somebody say dotm haha.
Man, if only i had a camera that day.
BUT it happened, i was in walmart, it was christmas time (20th dec/2008), and i was just an innocent kid.
And there a was a LOT of swapped toys there, IIRC, i'll count somes that i remember:
1-.A venom figure inside of a LC Optimus Box.
2-.Green Goblin inside of a box of star wras with a legend class Bee
3-.Star Wars box (black series?) with a jazz legends inside of it.
4-.Megatron voyager in the box of the leader.
5-.Like 3 optimus legend class in the box of the voyager.
And the oddest and strangest part of the story...it's that they were sold, yes, you've heard me, most of these were actually sold, even the ones with the shitt**st box were sold.
However, they were very cheap (so i suppose because of the swapping), still a very chaotic memory. lol
From that night my fathers bought me the 2-pack of Prime and Megatron from TFA, fortunetaly, they were safe.
Strange part was I was excited to see beast wars back on the shelf almost as much as the hope of something new stocked.
Sorry to see you got a crapmaster in your area. However I would be pretty excited too to see a Beast wars toy these days. Wonder why they refuse to do them again?
I do dream they will go full out into Beast Wars. Grateful for the the few updates we have been given.
Is that a build a figure that was being assembles? Wtf is wrong with people? You know this had to have been a grown man, too. Pathetic
I have to wonder about these pics I see- wonder if they are staged. Granted I only go to BnM stores occasionally, but I have never seen anything near what I see posted on this thread
lol some were funny looking and any one can tell just lookin at most of the packeges that the wrong figuers are in them
Lol. Wow. No shame in this fools game. xD
It’s a “shame” my country has strict return policies, meaning I’ll never see these marvels in person until I die.
I think they’re hilarious if not mildly malicious.
I also guess they might give me a chance to pick up the DOTM toys (albeit with missing parts and sharpie marks from head to ass) I passed on long ago.
Alright, which one of you jokers posting Abominus pics in the Let's See Some Cool Stuff thread did this?
Man, I would have been happier with the BW figure in all honesty. Love that little guy, and I even need to orange version to boot.
So, because you haven't personally seen this happen you accuse people of staging the pics?
I didn't accuse people of staging the pictures - I said I wondered about it. If you look earlier in the thread, other posts mention this as well
I really think it depends on who is taking the return at the store. Some employees just don't know/care, while others do question. The last figure I returned (PotP Elita-1) was scrutinized to make sure all pieces were present. I was both surprised and impressed.
Sorry, that's how it read to me.
Aside from a few weird times (the Soundwave one) I highly doubt these were staged. The depths some people go to to steal knows no bounds.
