Toy Aisle Trolls > Crime Syndicate of Troll-Land

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.

The Problem: Owlman and Johnny Quick have been replaced by Dr. Mid-Nite and a regular Flash. UPDATE: I missed the fact that Power Ring appears to have been replaced by a regular Green Lantern, Superwoman has been replaced with a Marvel Legends Valkyrie, and Ultraman’s head has been swapped for a 1990s mullet-haired Supes head. Ugh.

Poe’s note: I just realized that I used the same title for two different TAT posts–and no one even noticed.

Anyway, clearly this set is serious troll-bait. Meanwhile, you can get an Owlman off eBay for the price of a single DCUC figure.

  1. Pretty sure those GL hands have been Sharpied. So nauseating.

  2. All these examples of the Troll mutilation of this set (this example is the worst!) show that anyone selling a loose Owlman on Ebay is probably a crook. Don't buy from them. Unless you are a crook yourself.

    • All the cheap Owlman figures on eBay are from Hong Kong or China. They may still be stolen, but I suspect they were taken by factory workers directly from the factory, not trolls here in America. Still dishonest, obviously.

    And Ultraman has had a mullet Supes head swap too.

  4. Wow…some thought actually had to go into that. At least Owlman was replaced with an Owl-themed character?

    And Johnny Quick is replaced with his good counterpart…

    As was mentioned though, Superwoman has been replaced with a Marvel Legends Valkyrie.

    Also, Ultraman's head has been replaced with a mullet hair Superman. Also, Power Ring's head has been replaced with a Hal Jordan Green Lantern head.

  5. Yeah, I think Power Ring has been replaced by a Green Lantern, too. Ugh.

    Man, I kinda want that set now, though.

    Total troll! Superwoman has bee replaced by ML Valkylrie, Ultraman's head has been swapped for mulleted Superman, GL is some sort of weird Franken-Lantern kit-bash. No coal in this jerk-off's stocking, just a fist in the mouth.

    ……

    So, someone decided that Valkyrie, Dr. Midnight, Hal Jordan, The Flash, and Long-Haired Not-Ultraman would make a better boxed set than the ACTUAL Crime Syndicate.

    …….

    Karmic Punishment: Every DVD/BluRay they order next year turns out to be a season of the Golden Girls.
