My god I didnt think I would ever see it. I found it at Target and picked it up and began to love all over on it, then I realized what was up. The box looked slightly mangled (not that unusual for toys at Target) but Short-Fuze was missing completely and so was the turret gun from the mobat (a commonly broken or misplaced piece on vintage mobats)
WTF!!!!!! I swear to the gods that if any repackers read this, or if I ever catch you M*Fers in the act I will skin you motherF#$&er alive. You are lower than snail shit and deserve to be sodomized by big silverback gorrillas. burn in hell and die...
If you cant afford the toys dont collect them. Dont buy shit, steal parts you need / want then return it.
Im stepping off my soapbox now...

Wow, that sucks. are you having trouble finding a UBP? Most stores only stock one at a time, have them check that store or others nearby for stock. I've found more then 3 at every store in my area.

Thats Lame Man!
Repackers should just quit collecting if they can't afford it.
And "sticking it to the Man" is not a valid excuse.
All they are doing is sticking it to the Fans.

I've never seen anything like that but I can honestly say that my anger would mirror yours. These creeps are in need of severe beatings! I try to think how I would have felt as a kid if I had gotten a toy set like that only to find out it had been raped by some re-packer. I would have been devastated. I did have a similar situation as a kid. My mom got me this Star Wars playset that was supposed to come with 3 droids. The tape on the box was torn off but as a kid, I didn't think of things like that. I was just anxious to getting at those toys so I could start playing! When I opened it, the droids weren't there. Someone probably stole them...this was the early 80's so collectors/scalpers probably didn't do it but it's all the same. I was really sad. Luckily mom called up the store and they gave me 3 BETTER figures to make up for the mess but I remember that disapointment I felt when I couldn't find those droids. Maybe a kid wanted that UBP but was really looking forward to that Shortfuse figure the most and when he finally gets that UBP for Christmas/birthday/Kwanza/etc.., there's no Shortfuse to be found. I suppose re-packer scum don't think of things like that. You'd need a soul first.

I would be so pissed, but there are a few "out of the closet repackers" on the tank like if you read the VINDICATION thread under the General Gi Joe discussion forum and it's that same mindset of "I'm just sticking it to the man, crap" I agree if you can't afford the hobby don't buy, don't cry and don't lie!

Wow I feel your pain man! Everytime I see some shxt like this I bring it to the front desk and tell them, only to find it back on the shelf the next day!
I believe this lady I always seen and would talk to about the joe stuff she would buy for her son was returning stuff that way too (I trust my feelings)! I have a feelin that she may have not known she was doin that for him but she knew almost all the characters so I could be wrong (this way the comic pack arah era)!
