I intentionally bought a Marvel Legends She Hulk missing the Fin Fang Foom head. I mentioned to the cashier that the toy is missing a head and ask if I can get a discount after I paid in full, so she asked a manager and I told him that its missing a head piece, and he said is there another one on the shelf or you want to exchange it. I said No. He said he can give me a 30 % and I said fine.
After I talked with the manager, I let him know that they should hire someone who knows their toys, and he said good idea.

I wanted to buy a Best of 5 pack that had 4 2000-2001 but the customer service lady argued with me so much about how nothing was wrong with the set that I just left it with her to deal with

In 98 I cleaned out a TRU of 5 Cobra Rages missing their Alley Vipers. Got them for $5 each

There is an Ace/WW comic pack at my sh*tty local Walmart that's missing Ace. It's been there at least since october when I started collecting this line. A few months ago, I decided, sure, I'd like a Wild Weasel. So first I get the runaround, every associate I asked about it told me to go to someone else. I'm finally directed to the CS desk. I ask the lady, she calls a manager and said manager proceeds to tell me that all she can do is 10% off, since they can just send it back and get a refund from Hasbro. No big deal, I'm not paying $9 for Wild Weasel. But why the hell is it still there? At least 4 months, it's been on that peg. I wish they'd clearance it, I'd still buy the damn thing.

i bought a hiss tank at walmart last week missing the driver. instead it had a clone trooper in it from episode 2. i was fine with that because i wanted the hiss but not the driver. I wanted the clone trooper too.

No, and thanks to everyone here for the education into repackers. This site by far has been the best site dealing with my collectable habbit/hobby.
I like to collect MOMC and display them as is. everytime I look at my collection it always brings back to those good old days when you could buy a toy gun with out those damn orange plugs.
I plan to pass my collection down to my 2yo GI JANE and my GI JOE due in may.

nope. repacked items are easily noticeable spot-on.
it's only those who work at customer service who don't know a thing or two about the product itself, thus they get back on the floor.
