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.

So I’ve recently started collecting Transformers, including the Human Alliance stuff from the movies (quality of the films aside, the HA figures are wonderful toys). I’ve managed to track down every figure released so far except the original screen-accurate releases of the twins–until this morning. At my local Walmart (where else?) I found Skids just sitting on a shelf. Box is a little damaged but he’s clearanced down to $25 from $30 AND he’s two years old AND I want him real bad…so who cares about a crushed box? I’m excited.
I get to work, pull him out of the package to size up my new prize–aaaaaaaaaaand it’s not a crushed box. It’s a STABBED box. And the Megan Fox driver figure has been ripped out.
God. Damn. It.
(Yes the human figures are ass, but I did at least want the two main characters.)
If I may? Since he obviously has such an (understandable) aversion to the twins, may the blighter be tied to a chair and forced to rewatch all of the Skids / Mudflap scenes from Revenge of the Fallen. On a loop. For a month.
Or be crushed when his Decepticon car spontaneously transformers with him it.
Either / Or.
