Toy Aisle Trolls > Crime Syndicate of Troll-Land

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.

The Problem:¬†Owlman and Johnny Quick have been replaced by Dr. Mid-Nite and a regular Flash. UPDATE: I missed the fact that Power Ring appears to have been replaced by a regular Green Lantern, Superwoman has been replaced with a Marvel Legends Valkyrie, and Ultraman’s head has been swapped for a 1990s mullet-haired Supes head. Ugh.

Poe’s note: I just realized that I used the same title for two different TAT posts–and no one even noticed.

Anyway, clearly this set is serious troll-bait. Meanwhile, you can get an Owlman off eBay for the price of a single DCUC figure.

    So, someone decided that Valkyrie, Dr. Midnight, Hal Jordan, The Flash, and Long-Haired Not-Ultraman would make a better boxed set than the ACTUAL Crime Syndicate.

    …….

    Karmic Punishment: Every DVD/BluRay they order next year turns out to be a season of the Golden Girls.

  • Total troll! Superwoman has bee replaced by ML Valkylrie, Ultraman's head has been swapped for mulleted Superman, GL is some sort of weird Franken-Lantern kit-bash. No coal in this jerk-off's stocking, just a fist in the mouth.

  • Yeah, I think Power Ring has been replaced by a Green Lantern, too. Ugh.

    Man, I kinda want that set now, though.

  • Wow…some thought actually had to go into that. At least Owlman was replaced with an Owl-themed character?

    And Johnny Quick is replaced with his good counterpart…

    As was mentioned though, Superwoman has been replaced with a Marvel Legends Valkyrie.

    Also, Ultraman's head has been replaced with a mullet hair Superman. Also, Power Ring's head has been replaced with a Hal Jordan Green Lantern head.

  • All these examples of the Troll mutilation of this set (this example is the worst!) show that anyone selling a loose Owlman on Ebay is probably a crook. Don't buy from them. Unless you are a crook yourself.

    • All the cheap Owlman figures on eBay are from Hong Kong or China. They may still be stolen, but I suspect they were taken by factory workers directly from the factory, not trolls here in America. Still dishonest, obviously.
