Found this @ walmart. There’s a troll who does this on a regular basis @ this walmart this is my 7th repack I’ve seen Â since last year
lol i give them credit for also including a helmet to take the place of red skulls hat
you know i had always just thoguht about these as plane and simple theft, but maybe this really is a troll mentality. they are doing it not to save money, but ti drive other collectors insane
This is so lame. Seriously, I don't at all condone this type of behavior but you can at least kind of understand when someone does this with a boxed set or a vehicle with an exclusive figure or something. Still wrong, but you can get where some unhinged/ slightly evil person decides that they don't want to buy 4 figures they already have for one new figure. But one single figure that sells for under $10? That's lame.
It really pisses me off when I see collectors do this with heroic figures like Batman and Captain America. Something about it just seems so wrong. At least this dude stole a villain, which definitely suits them better. I like to think that when someone does this with heroic figures, they're eventually driven mad by the stares of the heroic action figures they own, silently judging them until the make things right.
