Toy Aisle Trolls > Skal(lox)ped

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

What It’s Supposed to Look Like: This

Long time reader, first time “caller”! I was in a Walmart in Catonsville, MD and I stumbled upon the attached example of a Toy Aisle Troll. As you can see, they stole the Skallox/Nite-lik Red Lantern body and replaced it with a *broken* Atom body. Atom’s broken leg was just free-floating in the package. The package rim was covered in tape, so it was obvious to anyone that it had been opened. Surprisingly, the Stel part was still there.

    I've seen that one around. Did you just leave it there? Most Wal-marts will restock clearly broken figures.

    I'm thinking this guy is a customizer.

      I’m thinking more he just wanted the spare Red Lantern buck and probably had the broken Atom lying around. The retail versions of the Metallo wave was super prone to snapped hips.

      That way he gets to have both Skallox and Nite-Lik.

    I see stuff like this constantly around here. I’ll have to send some pics next time.

    Love the new logo. “got first” is a classic moment of jerkery.
