Seems like the usual Wal-Mart business (at least in my areas) Seems like we have M'Baku body and not Thanos

Here is a fantastic one I found not to long ago at my Wal-Mart I had to laugh at hard

What if The Punisher was the Vision and called himself Thor?

Glad you're amused. It's hard enough finding these things when all you have to worry about is spotty distribution, retailer indifference,, on-line mark-ups, brick 'n mortars dropping like flies, and HONEST competition.

I don't need these F-tards peeing in the well. My only solace is that these ball-washers are to bloody stupid to realize, at 19.99 a pop (39.99 for two-packs), it odesn't take that many five finger discounts at all to graduate from annoying misdemeanor to felony. Then all it takes is getting caught once, and you're explaining to some lonely tattooed gang-banger how you were sent up for stealing Captain America dolls.

Yeah, I'm bitter.

I agree as much as I am amused it's solely now because it is such common place for me to see these things, I guess here in Canada with the price tag of 29.99 a figure and about 69.99 or more for 2 packs, 3 packs being about 100, this happens alot, and extra specially at Wal-Mart, it really pisses me off personally, because I barely see alot of figures around where I am I need to go at least 40 minutes to get to anywhere where I might find better stock or stock at all and those are always run down because they are in central traffic areas, if I wanna find any jack pot I need a car and a couple hours, so yeah I get it it sucks alot, Canada is a hard place for ML collectors, but in the end you just got to laugh that some jerk was pulling a fast one and the employees are so daft they had no clue, really strikes me pathetic you need to resort to stealing toys, if you are going to be such a thief go snatch something worth while

The only time I did this was when I opened a M.L., impatiently to display, only to find the same figure with better paint apps. When returning the figure I placed everything that was included back in the oringinal box. I have found swapped figures in my local retail establishments, and frankly it’s a loser thing to do.

I think this one was an actual hasbro blunder, I’ve double checked the tape and it appears to have never bern purchased. I bought it for the hands, as I will eventually change out the lightning hands on my Electro (Space Venom wave).

That's weird if it is a Hasbro blunder, doesn't look right too me, But who knows I'm sure Hasbro most certainly has had a few blunders here and there. I don't know why it would be a human done thing though since everything is intact and nothing was taken it's just the wrong box

I doubt its a blunder. Someone probably just hung onto the plastic tray for Iron Fist, bought either Vision or Doc Strange, then shoved Iron Fist and the tray into the Vision/Strange box and returned it.  Its a bit weird since its a fairly neutral swap (none of the 3 figs are particularly rare or valuable afaik) and while Hulkbuster is a cooler BAF than Odin, iirc Odin's legs were kind of hard to come by later on.   My guess is the swapper was close to finishing Hulkbuster and wanted the piece for free. I'm surprised they actually included all the hands and Odin's leg since most of the time swappers just throw in a fig and random junk.

Lol! I bought especially for the hands and when i got home I was shocked to see the back of the packaging was for doctor strange/vision... upon further inspection, I saw no tampering? The original tape was intact, with no tape over? Pretty weird

Hhahaah I've seen this before, hell though for that price I would have bought that swapper b.s. and all that figure is worth more then 19.87, but also how did this get past the employees are they that moronic, really when is a figure packaged like that? , they really just don't care at all what they are selling

Heh, most of them around here just return the figures without the BAF pieces.  On the plus side I got an extra Multiple Man for $15 by pointing out he was missing a piece.

Yet, if anyone has ever tried to bring this issue to the employee's or even management's attention, you'll understand it's a total lost cause. They simply don't care. Most of the people working at these big box stores are just on the payroll trying to make a living. They could simply care less it the mega million dollar corporation looses $20. Furthermore, there seems to be an intentional move for stores like Walmart and Target to place people in charge of departments where they have little knowledge and little interest in the products they are charged to oversee. I understand it's in an effort to prevent the management from cherry picking or holding back products of their own personal preference to purchase with an employee discount, but at least the company is being paid for the product rather than putting a tampered with product back on the shelf and eventually being written off as a total loss or massive discount. Alas, this is a problem that's never gonna go away, and in all honesty, if anyone has ever worked at one of these stores, you'll know that you could most likely just walk in, pull the product off the shelf and walk out with it before most people have realize what happened. And even if someone did take notice, it's most management's policy that no employee give chase for something as insignificant as $20. No one wants to get stabbed for the price of a large lunch and everyone knows that comic and toy nerds are a violent, volatile bunch.

Yeah number one problem with all of this swapping and stealing is that the employees don't care, and as you said have no interest in caring, I have more then one Wal-Mart where this is such commonplace in fact there is a Wal-Mart that I go to that has never had a non messed up swapped out Legend for over 15 months, they usually having nothing at all but when they do they have been botched, I have brought it to the attention of several employees and the response is consistently the same, they have no idea the part was swapped or figure was tampered and think you are a fool for bringing it to there attention, or they lie and say they will do something about it, and then the next time I go there it's back on the shelf. I have had numerous times at Wal-Mart where I've asked why there are no Legends on the shelf at all, and if they possibly have any unstocked in the back, more then one occasion the employee says "What is a Marvel Legend?" so thats really the fact... they have No clue what they are looking at, really quite sad, I do know there is one Wal-Mart in my area that is just ravaged by one lone scalper who buys every fig, and knows when they show up, I've seen his take aways it's a real piss off

    • I know that we just got the Spider-Man and Mj 2 pack, but I still really want an Mcu Marvel Legends Shocker figure. We got the basic figure for the movie, but not only was that not screen accurate, but it also doesn't fit in very well with the Marvel Legends. And I can only see us getting a figure in a 2 pack, unless he appears in a future movie. Since we're getting "citizen/no super" characters like an Mj figure and Luis figure from Ant Man and the Wasp, then maybe we could get either Ned or the Tinkerer with him. Who else could be possible candidates for this 2 pack?
    • I pre-ordered the “Homecoming” Spider-Man and MJ two-pack from Target when it was first announced back in February.   With people saying hey picked it up in stores I checked on my pre-order and it still had no movement on it.  I clicked in to the product and found it available in store at my local Target, so I went to go see. There weren’t any out on the shelves, but I gave the SKU to an employee and he was able to go grab one for me from the back. So as soon as I had it in hand I cancelled my pre-order on the Target app.
    • Agreed, I have seen people quoting Kevin Feige saying that Deadpool isn’t broken so don’t fix it. So I can’t see R rated Deadpool fitting in with The Homecoming Spiderman. Unless we have a much different character post snap in Far From Home.
    • Well, we had our first couple of 90 degree days (and its not even #@$% June yet), which only serves to remind me how much figure hunting in the dog-days of summer SUUUUUCKS, so I went ahead and pre-ordered most of the big summer releases through Pulse. Hulk vs. Wolverine, Spider-Woman, Hydro-Man, Scorpion, Rock Python (sounds like an early 80s metal band), Comic Series Loki, Union Jack, Beta-Ray Bill, War Machine and Rescue (whew!). Guess I'm down the rabbit hole now! I can officially throw out that no pre-ordering rule. Looks like I'll be hitting Target today.
    • I love this, haven't had a War Machine since the old Toy Biz one
