If Target is made aware that there's been a switch and still keeps the figures on the pegs to sell them, they are just as guilty of fraud.
It's times like these I wish I had a good video camera so I could make a little youtube documentary showing the switched figures on the pegs, including audio of me calling the manager and letting him know, etc. It would be like Dateline 20/20.
Anyway, I think the Asset Protection guy may care a bit more than the manager.
I think kids will know a difference. Those figures are crap, bad paint, worse plastic, and come with 1/10th the accessories as real G.I. Joes. Wouldn't you be upset if you were a kid whose parents bought you that for your birthday or something, and then when you complained they thought you were just whining? Something needs to be done about this, we have to make an example of this Target. Get over there with your video camera alcinde. Use a small digital one because Target doesn't allow taping I think.
