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.
I don’t know enough about Transformers these days to have any clue what Sabertron Toys is talking about in regard to this set, so I shall present it as it was received.
So picture this 35 year old guy stopping by his local Toys R Us to pick up the latest and greatest toys in the ROTF line. Picture him going through ALL of the racks (as usual) looking for something new behind all of the S.O.S. Now picture this guy finding WHAT HE THOUGHT was a Shaghai Showdown ERROR Box Set. Ok?..now picture this guy dancing around the Toys R Us store, pushing MILF’s out of his way to point at their kids and laugh because he THOUGHT he had an error box set worth at least $10,000,000 dollars! (I used the TF Fans Blue Book)… Ok, so take this 35 year old, and place him in his home, sitting with his wife at dinner. Picture him telling her how awesome the day is, and how it just couldn’t get any awesomer because you had just found the most awesomest thing in the world. Picture this…me carefully inspecting the box and finding out that the Demolishor was switched by an hASS-BRO instead of HASBRO! I know that somewhere near me, a village is missing his idiot. That idiot left the new ****-stained twins in and only swapped out the Demolishor with a stupid re-tape job. I would have noticed this early if I hadn’t danced around the Toys R Us like some 35 year old fan boy transformer collector who….uhm…scratch that last statement.
