odd find at walmart

odd find at walmart

was checking out the clearance section looking for stray thundercat & monsuno stuff when i noticed a couple of gijoes. I noticed them because they werent new ones they were old ones from the 90s. First thought was hasbros reissuing finally but after looking closer i noticed they were opened at some point. Apparently someone took 2 new figures & swapped them with the 90s Slice & Dice figures then returned them. They even through in a bunch of weapons from that era of GIJOE as well. Why anyone would do this is beyond me, its like taking a beast hunter figure & replacing it with a G2 figure then returning that to the store. But hey i got 2 mint condition 90s gijoes plus weapons for less than 2 new ones.

The only time where toy swapping actually works out for the collector :)

How much have G.I. Joe figures changed in the last few decades anyway? I mean noticeably changed? Not by much I bet if something like this were to be unnoticed...

Wait, did you say Walmart? Forget I said anything then.

They've improved a lot since the old days. The articulation is far better and they don't have those rubber bands holding them together anymore.
