I don't collect MOC, no room for such things, but I am curious aboutbhow people feel about the recent figures having the website tag hole-punched through the card.
I haven't read anything about it, and when I saw them at Target, I figured it was done in store, and people would be pissed! I've seen them elsewhere, so far only wave 1 assortment 1, so I guess it's done at Hasbro because the holes all match.
I'm curious, is anyone actually rebuying figures with the tagged cards for completion? Is anyone pissed that the hole and dangly tag ruin a perfect specimen? Is "unpunched" the new "foil card?"(no)
I think they look a little funny, like beanie baby tags, but it doesn't affect me at all.

Contrary to popular belief these are not done by reps coming in stores. These come in sealed cases and only 1 or a few per case. I have opened cases and seen this.

I figured they were done by Hasbro, but I didn't know it was so few.
Seems like most of the early stuff that is getting restocked has them, but that's probably just because they aren't selling as briskly as newer waves.
I suppose they are "rarer" but I do really hope this doesn't become considered a legitimate variant. If only because it will drive people crazy. Plus, if some figure is not available with a tag, it would be easy to attach one to rip off the gullible.
