The last time I was returning something a sketchy dude was bringing back a coffee maker with more clear tape on it than 50 coffee maker boxes should have. They started the process of removing all that tape to check inside, so he grabbed it away from the lady & left.  :shakehead:

There are some strange folk out there. LOL
I'm just looking forward to the Solo figures coming out. Word is only one wave of 12 figures is being put out on Wookiee weekend along with the 2 packs and vehicles.

Toys R Us is better. I refunded a Marvel Legends two pack and the guy was checking the tape and making sure it was legit. Guy was probably a fan cause we started chatting about Marvel Legends toys and the movie.

Walmarts are starting to get the new 2 packs in. Just saw at my local Walmart in Kirkland that someone swiped Rose, her blaster and BB-9E and shoved Baze and his gun in their slots leaving only BB-8 and the big gun.  :sign0065:

That's awful.  >:( Never saw that 2-pack still at retail. Got mine from another source. They are out?

I've seen so many disgusting swapped stuff at Walmart over the last few months and years. Transformers replaced by Marvel Superheores. And the opposite: a yellow car Transformer (typically very mechanical looking) in a 6" Marvel Superheroes box. A bendy Drogo from Games of Thrones (no idea which line that came from) replacing a 6inches Thor. A BB-8 from the TFA 3pack replaced by a Hot Wheel car! Plenty of basic SW 5POA cards ripped opens with figures or accessories or both missing, still hanging on the pegs or laying on the shelves.

Walmart stores are becoming a place of ridiculous findings. The stores employees (especially in the toy sections) simply don't care and leave the area like a mess. The clerks at the customer service counter are the worse I think, for accepting almost anything back. It reminds me of Zellers stores where you could see the exact same things...

I dunno if TRU is better. Last week, I've seen a bunch of Black Series 3.75" Walmart exclusive Leias on the pegs at TRU. Those figures are not even sold by TRU. How come they could provide a refund and put it back on the pegs is a mystery...

Well... that's a new one. The weirdest find of mine ever was a Gentle Giant Clone Wars Obi Wan bust at Jean Coutu of all places. For $35. Needless to say, I bought it right away.

I just saw a new one at the TRU in Pointe-Claire. Someone swapped out the Praetorian from the Rey 2 Pack and stuffed in TFA Han(without his jacket) and his build-a-weapon part.

Meanwhile they've filled at least 9 full pegs of series 1 and 2 of R1 figures again. LOL  :speechless-smiley-004:

With product like this, no wonder they are having problems. Hasbro must have made a ton of Force Awakens and Rogue One figures. They are everywhere.

I've actually stopped seeing TFA for the most part. 1 or 2 still hang at various Jean Coutu locations near me. Of course there's the mandatory one Zuvio that still hides on the pegs at Walmart.

I'm hoping Solo figures are easy to find.

Nothing new in my area as of this morning.  Walmart’s pegs are almost bare.  Now planograms are up, so there is hope.
Nothing new at the Disney Store either.

I read some of that on JTA forum,  not about Canada though. I thought they were talking about target stores.  I will reread again tonight. But wouldn't that be a nice surprise at check out! :luke:

When I went to Walmart, I saw they re-stocked the Jyn Erso wave.  They had Jyn, Ashoka, Lando and Ackbar left.  I don't actually remember what else was in there.  The Deathtrooper?
