ToyFarce News: Toy Collector Sees Action Figure He Already Owns At The Store, Buys It Anyway!


Recommended Posts

Picsart_24-05-27_14-37-16-179.jpgAn unexpected turn of events took place over the weekend in a Walmart store in Tulsa, Oklahoma, as Jonathan, a seasoned toy collector bought a figure he already owned! "It wasn't even an accident!" claimed Jonathan. ToyFarce investigated...

"It was a nice warm afternoon, and I decided to go to Walmart, to grab some groceries, and of course, I had  to check the toy section" said Jonathan. "They had the usual stuff I always see, but this time, they also had a couple of other items I hadn't seen in a while, including the Jada Toys Street Fighter Ryu action figure. Man, what a great figure... Don't get me wrong, I got it months ago, I've opened it, played with it, took pictures, enjoyed it thoroughly! But there's something about seeing it in its packaging, brand new, in the wild... I had to get it."

According to experts, this is definitely not the first time that a situation like that happens: "Impulsive re-purchasing" (or "Impulse army-building) is a known tendency to buy something you already own, just because. "It just looked so good, on the peg, in its packaging, all crisp. And they had a sale, so I even got it for a bit cheaper. Listen, I can try to justify this all day long, but in the end, I just wanted it...again."

More news at 11:00... We've all at least thought about it once... right?

Yeah that's kind of happened to me before. I've had a gut reaction to buy a figure I already own before like snapping out of it and just leaving it lol.
