Often, blind boxes get a little roughed up by people who have no idea what they are and don't really get the concept; they think they might be able to see inside so they try. It sounds silly to us, because we're used to the idea, but a lot of people just don't get it. However, the way those boxes are cut really look like someone knew what they were doing. It's really unfortunate, and does take some of the fun away when people decide to resort to cheating.
In happier news, Solomon Pond Mall Disney Store is open again! It randomly closed for a couple of weeks for renovations, but it's back, and I was able to find a Yzma (V2) in the trade box!
I've seen that plenty of times in stores overhere too... I think because the stores here don't have any information on what vinylmation is (either a poster nor a display) people might be tempted to see what they are...but also it could just be someone feeling around to see if there is a neck piece in there to get the chaser
Just started collecting, and dont' think i will stop any time soon
I see a lot of boxes in that condition here as well. There are three different stores by me and all of them have some degree of tampering. Some stores are worse than others. What kills me is that the boxes are usually right by the cashier and the CM's don't say anything to the culprits.
Dreams do come true
When I buy blind boxes, I make sure now to inspect the boxes individually. I look for dents, openings, or anything that I may believe the box was tampered with.
Northpark had Rocky, Gears, and Tatoo Businessman. I felt like doing a good deed, and left my Audio-Sonic Bot and took Rocky. But she's going right back in today if anything's changed up.
I was surprised to see that they had 25th anniversary (not light up one) ones and the Brave set, about 20 of each. Almost got a Brave one, but passed for now. Saving money for May 28 and the light up ones.
St. Augustine outlet had yellow 40th WDW, Celebrations Confetti and U3 Little Dragon. I would've traded from their 24 mystery box but a nagging feeling was telling me that, after that rash of P6/U5 cases being sold at alarming rates (in which wiped out the outlet's blind boxes completely and probably for a while), the only things in that box will be the clearance open box vinyls.
Clear purple is a great find!
Northpark has their mystery trade box out. We put in the purple monster from Park 8, Audio-Sonic Bot, and urban Snakes. We got Cutesters 2 kid, CLY Hippie, and a Gorilla. We traded a couple in the store for the Sheep from the latest urban series, and put the cutesters 2 kid in the clear trade box for the power button.
I really must have overlooked the trade box. Is it near the clear box? That store is a little crowded for me, but fun to see a different DS. Jealous of the sheep and power up button. The only two I like of that series. Can we fast forward to next Monday? This boy needs some new vinyls.
