Toy Aisle Trolls > Giant-Size Trollery

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

The Problem: Phillip writes: “Spotted this at a ToysRUs in Austin yesterday. It looks like someone replaced every single figure in this new X-Men 6-pack.” [I think Nightcrawler and Colossus are supposed to be there. –PG]

What It’s Supposed to Look Like: This

Poe’s Note: I’m going to stop writing the karmic paybacks, folks. Not because I don’t think these bastards deserve it, but because it’s kind of exhausting trying to come up with a clever new one each time. However, feel free to come up with your own suitable punishment for them, and describe it at length in the comments.

Poe & the Four Horsemen: How It All Began

    mech, that's disgusting… especially if stan likes a backdoor entry… but i digress.

    may this party forevermore find hair in their soup and sand in their seafood.

    Karmic Payback: Every time he tries to read an X-Men book, it magically transforms into one from the '60s.

    I can only say this, this is the most trolled item I've ever seen, at my TRU there is literally is a bin designed to clearance out the tampered sets. They have figures have been replaced with others, figures stolen (blades slashed with openings) sets returned with out the figures…there is about 8 or 9 boxes of these like that. And as you can guess its Storm and Nightcrawler taken out. I would take a picture, but I'm too embarrassed….

  5. Are we, as toy fans, going to be forced to take the law of the toy aisles into our own hands? Forced to patrol for trolls and mete out justice? Is vigilantism the answer to the troll scourge?

    I'm especially mad this time, since I just want that Nightcrawler figure. Man up, buy the set, put the ones you don't want on eBay, done.

    I hope this utter dreg of humanity see's a toy he wants up on a high shelf, tries to use the shelf to climb up and get it only to have this very set fall in his eyes* and blind him for the rest of his miserable life.

    *No, I don't know how it would work either, but the thought of him doubled up on the floor with a Wolverine sticking out of each socket while he screams, 'MY EYEEEEEESSSSS!!!' and claws at his face fills me with a worryingly warm glow….
