    I was at Walmart cruising the toy isle when I found two very cool items.

    G.I.Joe 25th anniversary Cobra Commander with battle armor but he was no snake face packaged instead was a Starwars Return of the jedi Scout Trooper

    and

    G.I.Joe 25th anniversary SSGT Rock & Roll but not the old Machine gunner packaged instead was a tuskin raider without a gaffi stick

    I put down the transformer I was going to buy and bought the two figures instead then proceded to walk the whole toy section looking for more but didnt.

    what do you think of my find.

    No evidence of tampering? We have a clown around here that does figure swaps in the packages... Marty got a Luke ROTJ like that once.

    Bet you could get a fortune if you ebayed them. I am curious though what does your receipt say does it just says toy or state the type of toy cause if it does not just say toy that might be a clue if someone switched figures or if it was a weird case of packaging. On a sort of off topic discuss I can remember one time when I was actively collecting hockey cards and once got a insert from a previous years set in a pack that there should be no humanily possible way of it being in.

    there is minor signs that they could have been tampered with but ive seen normal packaging with the same.

    anyways, why would someone buy two G.I.Joe figures, two starwars figures swap them then bring back the figures to a store and put them on the shelf. just for kicks, knowing someone may buy them thinking they got something special. sounds like a real winner.

    well if they are fakes, well I guess I got duped, and they become a curious part of my starwars collection like they were gonna be anyways.

    Have you tried contacting Hasbro to see if they are genuine? They may not be sincere but its worth the effort.
