Should Look Like: DC Universe Classics Exclusive Action Figure 5-Pack

Submitted by: JM

I’m not sure if this counts as a “toy aisle” troll because I found this 5-pack in a comic shop in San Antonio, Texas, not at a Walmart or Target. They were selling it for $70 as a “mispack variant”. I know the guys who run the store and they know their stuff…except when it comes to action figures, so I wonder if someone took this into the shop and was able to convince them that this was, indeed, a rare error variant and traded it for store credit.

  • Man, if they thought that was actually an error/variant, maybe I can sell 'em the Golden Gate Bridge. Seriously, there's pictures on the back of the box of what figures SHOULD be in the package, and several of those figures are from different waves (and in Cybrorg Superman's case, an entirely different series) entirely. I doubt even the day laborers who work for peanuts in the toy factories overseas could make that big a mistake,
