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.
Where to start with this crap? First off, that’s the lame Superman from way back in Mattel’s early 2003 “Batman” days. This asshole couldn’t even be bothered to put a decent He-Man in there. That’s douche-y enough.
Then he puts a Green Goblin body with a first-release(?) Skeletor head on the non-Skeletor side of the second pack, and crams The Leader–THE LEADER–into what’s clearly labeled as the Skeletor side? And this thing was on the shelf at TRU?!
First off, may the jackass who did this be forever stuck in his parents’ basement until the despair drives him to suicide by masturbation. Second, while I try to have sympathy for beleaguered, overworked, underpaid toy store personnel, this is pretty ridiculous.
