Could be someone who works at that TRU and finds loose figures and other stolen/parts missing packs they have at that store. Maybe that GM of that store wants to impact their shrink number in a creative and very devious way!
Could also be a way someone is getting rid of theft items and making a profit on people who do not know better when they are returned to the store. I don't think the box says exaclty what comes in it, though I never really looked a troop box over that much in detail. I see tons of backing cards and blister bubbles sitting on shelves just about everywere I go in some cases just missing the figure and all the accessories are still there.
In any case, its wrong!

The thing I find the most confounding is that someone took the Cobra Commander out of the Ranking Officer 3-Pack, and didn't want the Trooper and Officer. No matter how many different ways I try to approach this, I cannot find a logical explanation. Well, maybe a scavenger hunt...

God damn, this shit is the most lame thing on earth.
I see this in the STL area and it pisses me off until no end.
I hope toy karma meets these dicks in a dark alley.
(toy karma usually shows up as a pissed off t-rex with lazer guns on it like something out of "Dino Riders" fyi)
FINALLY updated my trade list. Come get your trade on with me.

There is nothing about collecting that upsets me more than when I see something like this on the shelf.

That SRO Cobra 3 pack is a strange repack. As has been pointed out, who would keep the Cobra Commander but return a troop builder? I have been contemplating picking up another 2 of these but the thought of two more Cobra Commanders has held me back. All 3 figures were removed at some point, the trooper is where the officer should be and vice versa. Also, I think the trooper is missing his gloves, although I don't have my SRO figures handy to verify this.

i would buy that cobra 3 three pack in a second. If I found that. The hell with the cobra commander. That's three troop builders.
