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.

So not only did this scumbag score a Beast Boy and a Power Girl, but he was so goddamned cheap he swapped in other figures and returned them to get his money back (and naturally, Walmart threw them back on the shelf…sigh). No doubt in his mind he was “sticking it to the Man,” but all he was really sticking it to was his own soul.
Karmic Payback: His water heater breaks at 3:30AM on Christmas morning, flooding his living room and thoroughly soaking all his presents under the tree.
