Found a human in Microchanger blind bag

Just found these Kreon Micro-Changers at my TRU for the first time on my lunch break. Picked up 5, didnt know the ID #s but knew enough to pick 5 different ones. I opened one so far, and it is not one of the twelve listed on the back of the bag. It's a human, Witwicky looking guy that obviously does not change and does not have a stand. He's got the yellow/orange construction hat with the orange shirt and tan legs.

Has anyone heard of this? I believe the number on the top/back of the bag was one of the standard 12 numbers. Could this just be a mistake?

Are they part of the Preview wave or Wave 1?

Sounds like a factory error. I'd hate to think it's a chase figure, since that's the worst idea for a line about transformable robots ever. "Gee whiz! A human!"

If it makes you feel better, I once found a human in a trash can. I couldn't use it as a toy, though. The smell was too much.

This is wave one. He has the Id number for rampage but is actually one of the human kreons from the destruction site devastator set. Go figure.

So last night I opened the other five I bought and they were all human Kreons from other sets. Went back to the store determined to feel the bags for the stands and sure enought the other 10 in the store had no stands. Then I noticed they were all cut at the bottom and re-sealed.

Be careful out there.

I suspected as much. So even those aren't safe from toy-swappers. Bring it up in the news and have the stores force a no-return policy :-x

Try and bring it up at the store manager, and explain to him Toy Swapping is identical to theft and shop lifting.

Oh yeah, of course. I did all of that. Took them all off the shelf and laid a stack of them in his hands. This was a really neat and precise job. You could hardly see the slice in the bottom of the bag even after it's pointed out. Didnt appear that any tape was used either, so like I said - be careful.

Also, there was no display box for that wave 1. These were mixed into the preview wave box. It also looks like there was a Hasbro Canada sticker on the back of the bags, so these probably weren't even purchased at that store and maybe not even in the US where I found them. For all I know, it could have been an actual store employee who did this. Maybe even the manager I was speaking to, LOL!
Thanks.
