Toy Aisle Trolls > Pilot Filch

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.

Wow, been a while since we had one of these.

Poester NS sends in this sample:

All of the figures in the Force Unleashed set have been swapped out. The two good pilots in the pilot set have been swapped, the lame clone pilot in the middle has been left alone.

Ah, Star Wars–probably the earliest and most frequent victim of these attacks. Force Unleashed? More like douche unleashed. Here’s hoping he contracts leprosy.

  • I was extra grumpy with this one, because it was at my local TRU, which is usually good about this stuff.

  • Terrible.

    I'm kinda wishing I would have snapped a pic of what I saw last week. A Walmart in Sacramento had a few of the new Sea Spray, and one of them had been re-painted in a terrible, thin wash of yellow and blue. I guess this failed "customizer" didn't want to lose the bucks on his poor attempt to emulate the original Seaspray, so he repacked it and returned it. Just terrible. I was too disgusted to shoot the pic, instead I just reported it to the toy dept. manager.
