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.
I’ve been getting a slew of TAT submissions lately–apparently trolls the world over have been emboldened by Jon Cryer’s coming-out party. Anyway, this one comes from Toyninjas:
After purchasing the new Pokemon game I made my way to the action figure isle. Lo and behold I find this gem. Deadpool theft is very unfortunate.
Bleh–this is your standard, straight-up trolling, taking the desirable fig and swapping it with one no one wants.
Convince me otherwise, world.
That Wolverine was a Diamond Distributors Exclusive from 2007.
And AmericanHyena is correct…the Deadpool taken from that particular set was the blue & yellow variant.
Wait, there's still Marvel Legends at TRU?
Oops. I can't read today. Please disregard that earlier post. (I tried to delete/edit it.) I had read the previous post as being about the Wolverine. My brain is just not in gear today.
And while it might be in the running for the worst Marvel Legend, it is certainly on the short-list for most unnecessary.
No, I think you're thinking of the Red Hulk series variants.
That looks like the variant of the Blob series Wolverine, which, I believe, was a TRU exclusive (the variant, that is).
Wait…wouldn't that have been the blue and yellow X-Men costume Deadpool?
sadly, for me, warpath was the sell feature of that pack… i prefer my ml6 deadpool. so this really makes zero sense.
may this troll be scorched by charlie's fire breathing fists!
Dead Man Walking
That Wolverine is quite possibly the worst Marvel Legend ever released. On second thought, there is too much competition for that title to be certain.
Weird. Isn't that the Variant blue wolverine from…eh one of those hasnro legends series?
Believe me, if Hasbro could get away with releasing Wolverine in place of every Marvel character, they most certainly would.
