Figure Swapping


Recommended Posts

As I've been out hunting for 25th Joes lately, I've kept running into a common problem at a few Atlanta area WalMart stores: namely, someone's been returning EVO troopers & Shadow Guard figures.


At least according to the bar code.


What they've been doing though is taking the older clone troopers from the 2003 Pre-vintage/ROTS clones and opening the packs, then inserting the bar codes from the newer star wars figures over them, then re-stapling them and returning them to WalMart.


And of course, no one checks the back to see that they're basically 5-6 year old toys getting swapped out for the newer ones.

heard of it, just hadn't seen that version before with swapping up the bar codes to fool walmart employees, as opposed to just returning it with a different figure in the package. lol i still have yet to see someone just try to put a green or tan plastic army man in a gi joe pack and try returning it. that would take some balls & a stupid employee!
