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.
Unfortunately, the holiday season seems to bring the worst out in the world’s Toy Aisle Trolls, as I’m being inundated with TAT entries (I need to start putting together some sort of award for these, like Marvel’s No-Prizes). President Juggernaut sends in this latest, which he found right in my own backyard (figuratively speaking).
Here’s one from the Framingham, MA WalMart. Someone swapped out two of the new superarticulated Vintage Collection Sandtroopers with a couple of POTF2 Sandtroopers. The packages were obviously tampered with, but this could easily fool a young kid, or a parent in a rush.
Two words: Douche. Bag. Give me a break–just pay for the damned toys like a responsible member of society. Otherwise, you’re a thief. A common, scum-of-the-earth thief who likes to make children cry (and not just by the sight of your ugly face).
