Black Series box with power of the force inside? HELP!

Postby trooperjango » Fri Oct 17, 2014 2:01 pm

I recently went to my local Wal-Mart and bought something I thought was very odd. It is a 1995 storm trooper still on the card in a 6" black series storm trooper box is this a line they did? A variant, a screw up? I'm confused too be completely honest. It is still sealed with the original tape on the top and the bottom.. Any info would be appreciated thanks.

100% certain that's just a figure swap. Someone bought it, took it home, replaced the figure with that, and returned it. While it's one of the more gutsy swaps I've seen, it's just a scam people run on retail to get the figures they want.

That is quite a bold move for someone to have switched them out. Ridiculous that no one notices or cares at the store.

Thats is just scummy!

You know swaps don't seem to happen here in the UK, maybe are staff are more scrutinising with returns.
If i wanted figures like Rebels and Legends series i'd build a time machine. Even if i did want them, i'd probably still need a time machine..

bout as bad as the guy on ebay a few years back who was selling the POTF Deluxe line ( dewback, ronto, jabba) .. he'd remove the crature and replace them with used oil filters to resemble the weight.




Here, that's a shop lifting charge.

I was thinking the same thing that it was swapped but the tape was never cut. It is the weirdest thing I have ever seen before lol. I had that thought when I bought it but I payed the money for the story itself lol. If anyone has any other ideas I'de love to hear them lol

The tape was probably carefully removed and replaced, there really is nothing special here.

It's definitely not special in anyway, unless you count scamming as special. The factory didn't have a stored away POTF2 figure waiting for this specific box. Some scum bag on the other hand did!
