Found a figure at Wal Mart I can't find on Ebay or even Google.

Recommended Posts

It is not a Marvel figure but I had to share this with you guys and get your thoughts.


I went to a Wal Mart I had never been to before to track down a Black Panther and Nick Fury a friend had hidden for me. I decided to look over the DC Multiverse DKR line of figures and found a totally new Superman figure that was factory sealed in the package as if it was the same older "fat" Superman from the DKR comic series. I have tried to find this figure on Ebay and Google but can't find a single image. Did I find some sort of factory mishap? I have attached a picture of the figure if anyone knows what this is please enlighten me.

No one has any idea? Would this be worth something if it is the only one of its kind?

No looks like someone swaped out the Dark Knight Returns Superman with a older New 52 Superman and then returned it to the store.

I understand why you think a customer did this but I am 99 percent sure it is factory sealed. It still has the little rings holding his hands in place his cape is slotted perfect and the box just appears to never have been open. I thought factory errors were worth something?

I'm not even sure Mattel(DNK figure)makes the DC Collectibles(New 52 fugure) figures. So a factory error may not even be possible.

 

Hmmmm that is a good point and I don't know but if you can inspect the figure up close you will see it still has the small adhesive rings holding his hands in place and everything just looks too perfect. If someone really wanted to replace the 20$ DKR Superman with DC Collectible Superman I doubt they would go through all that trouble. Does anyone know if a factory error is possible? If it is a factory error would it have any value?

Sadly, the new "collector packaging" makes this especially sleazy form of shop-lifting easier than ever to pull off.

 

Of course, I once saw an Amazing Spider-Man Venom on an old-fashioned blister card for a DCSH Mongul figure you would swear was fresh from the factory.

 

It's truly pathetic how skilled some of these a-holes get at this.

This seems to very common in stores like Toys R Us and Walmart. When Hasbro first took over the Legends line, I found a Marvel Select Thor in a Marvel Legends Thor package (Diamond figure in a Hasbro Package). It looks factory sealed, so I bought it thinking it may be worth something later on, maybe to those that like collecting error packaging. Past few years, I have bee seeing a lot of other error figures: Captain America from the Mandroid line with light blue arms and a bald man's head in place of the Mandroid head; a Toy Biz Wasp in a Hasbro Wasp package; Machine Man with squigy purple plastic pieces in place of his arms...I have also seen similar package errors with the DC Universe line, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and Monster High.

honestly it isnt hard to put a figure back in the packaging like that. just takes a little patience and some tweezers. i put my icons flash back into its box that way. takes several minutes but it works and looks like it just came off the shelf. that is definitely not a variant for that line
