I thought we all had our say on the scalpers and idiots who bend cards!
I was wrong!

No. This horse has been buried. Let it RIP. This thread has the bad habit of going from honest debate to flaming/bashing. Let it die.

I've noticed that the packaging - especially on single figures - has been bent on many of the Joe figures and not just in one store, but a few of them.
Is this something collectors to do prevent scalpers from buying the figure? Or, do scalpers do this when they return the figures because they couldn't sell them? Or, am I just going crazy????

for the most part I think people do this in an effort to stop scalpers, but the person it hurts the most are the MOMC guys.

Some people bend the cards that open them up, I'm sure. Its a messed up way to stop MOC collectors from buying it, so they can buy it when they have the money. Sometimes it might be just someone who just thinks its funny to do it.
I just bought another HISS Tank the other day to open up. It had a cut on the side from a box cutter. One of the employees did that to it, when they opened the box of vehicles up.
