I'm always amazed by accessory thieves. What, you couldn't even afford $5 to pay for the figure?

I saw this once a while back...I was shocked to see Kyle but had to put him back due to the missing lantern.

Wow that is such a douchebag move. Wouldnt it be great to see someone get arrested for stealing the accessory They should be ashamed. It's a hobby. If you cannot afford it then stop collecting. Jeez...

I havent seen any Kyles yet, but had planned on buying a few just for the Lantern.

What amazes me more that people steal super-hero toys.

I can't imagine the thought process there

Maybe they read comics idolizing the Super Villains instead of the Super Heroes.

At my local TRU a Huntress figure was missing from a 3-pack. Talk about shady, and now that 3-pack will sit there forever.

I wish I was surprised, but I'm not. I've posted about it before, I've stopped counting the number of times I've seen three-packs returned with a common figure substituted for a new one. Kyle's lantern and Shining Knight's sword keep disappearing from packages. I even saw an instance where somebody swiped a Black Mercy from a Supes package.

My amazement mirrors JQ3x29yz4a. I can't comprehend why anyone would steal super-hero toys. That's missing the point in a big, big way ...

It boggles my mind. Luckilly, I haven't noticed any of that in my local stores. That's really pathetic.

I saw my first carded Kyle at a Target last night., He still had the lantern. I carried it around the store for awhile thinking I would buy it... but it was really $5 for an accessory that I already had from a John Stewart release (just a slightly differnt color plastic). So I put it back.

That's odd. I saw the same thing at a TRU a while back. Only it was in the clearance section. Got me a loose Atom and another Batman for five bucks.

I sooooo wish I could catch one of these pack-in bandits in person. Usually, I just see their handiwork, or what's left of it. At least my Kyle has his lantern. Guess I got lucky?

I've seen an Etrigan figure carved out of a three-pack and a Shining Knight with no sword at a couple of Targets. Thieves are worse than scalpers.

Kyle doesn't need a ring. In the comics anyway. he's become more than that, taking the name "Ion".
