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: Here’s one for the ages. The shields of both Cap and U.S. Agent have been replaced with painted bottle caps. PAINTED BOTTLE CAPS. We’re through the looking-glass here, people. Cap’s parachute is also handmade.
I don’t even know how to assess this one. Why would this sad, sad person want to steal just two shields and a cheap parachute? Did they swap them in the store or buy them and return them?
This one seems less like an act of theft and more like a cry for attention. It’s the first TAT that really makes me wonder if I’m actually encouraging this sort of behavior. Perhaps it’s time to retire the feature…?
Update: Poester Braystreet points out: “The Fortress Assault figure is in the Parachute Package and the Paratrooper figure is actually supposed to be a plain Captain America.”
