Toy Aisle Trolls is a feature highlighting acts of vandalism to in-store toy items. If you find a ruined package, a stolen figure, a swapped-out figure, or any other such acts, take a photo (cell phone photos are fine if they’re not blurry) and email them to poe AT poeghostal.com. Also, please note: I’m deliberately being over-the-top with my condemnation of these people–I don’t actually wish bodily harm upon them. Just severe mental anguish.
Today’s Toy Aisle Trolls comes courtesy of Poester Nik.
It’s from Walmart in Henrietta, NY. The box is of the currently shipping and somewhat hard-to-find Bludgeon from the movie. The figure is very desired because it is an update of an old Pretender Decepticon who was featured heavily in the Marvel comic. I am unfamiliar with the toy inside the box. It is not a Transformer at all. It seems to be a Zoid or zoid-like mechanical bull robot. It is definitely not a tank.
Well, whatever it is, he who put it in there is unquestionably a full-fledged, card-carrying POS. And so unto him I bestow this Karmic Payback: May his junk-food-filled gut be gored by a mechanical bull, spilling half-digested buffalo wings all over the floor of cheapest bar in town.
(Incidentally, how totally awesome is it I was actually able to use that post title and have it make complete sense? I bet that’s only happened a handful of times since the development of the English language.)
