I just had a really strange experience this morning. I stopped by a local TRU on my way to work and was scanning through the figures. My eyes caught a bunch of Battle Droids and noticed that something was amiss. Someone had repackaged an E1 droid in the Saga packaging and gave it the force effect blast from the Super Battle Droid! The droid had a blue breast plate (I can't remember if this is an actual release of just a repaint) and was repackaged so badly that it had to be some joker who bought and returned it as a gag or something.

Why would anyone take the time to do this? Has anyone seen this sort of thig before?:confused:

Isn't the blue battle droid from that Trade Federation Scout Tank?

Well it helps get a free figure. Like those that would buy POTJ figures from stores along with a cheap POTF2 or E1 figure, take off the UPC sticker of the POTJ figure then slap it on the POTF2 or E1 figure and take it back therefore only spending a clearanced amount.

I guess, but it just seems like a CR*PPY thing to do.:stupid:
