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.
Poester Mysterious Stranger sends in this gem:
I was at Toys R Us last week, searching for the new G.I. Joe figures and vehicles. This particular store didn’t have the figures yet but they did have the vehicles. They had about 3 or 4 of each and this particular specimen was hidden behind some old DVD packs. Yeah, some dick took the figure (White Out) and replaced it with a Rise of Cobra Neo-Viper, and not even a complete one either, just the figure with no webgear or weapons. That’s just cold.
His punishment? Forced to wear a chastity belt lined with Icy Hot until he finds a woman who will love his Cheeto-stained soul.
