ToyFarce News: A Store That Sells Empty Boxes, For Loose Figure Collectors Who Want To Convert?

Boxes.jpgJust when we thought we'd seen it all... Last week, an ebay listing was brought to our attention: The seller offered a completely empty box from the G.I.Joe Classified Series Spirit figure, for about the same price as if the figure was in it.

ToyFarce decided to investigate and found out about a store in Florida (Florida man, again?), who sells only empty boxes, complete with plastic inserts and twist ties. The owner of the store explained us that it can be either for collectors that bought a loose figure but want to keep it "MOC", or for loose action figure collectors who want to convert and become "mint in box" collectors.

"Come visit our store, we have it all: Hasbro, Neca, Mezco, McFarlane Toys, Super7, Mythic Legions, SH Figuarts, ... We got all the empty boxes you need. If you got loosies, we got their boxes!" said the owner. "We even sell a "mint scent spray", that you can spray inside the box to give it that "out of factory" smell we all love!"

More news at 11:00... Talk about thinking outside the box!

*ToyFarce News is parody news for laughs and not meant to be taken seriously!

Haha, is this parody or a sad, sad reality?  I almost bought an empty box off Ebay once... (scour that fine print!)(the vendor was kind enough to depict an unopened box in is solicitation for empty boxes)

Maybe they could create a market for custom window boxes for the new blind packaging model Hasbro is rolling out.

This will definitely be the subject of an upcoming article 😆
