Re: The Action Figure and Toy Collecting and Discussion Thread!

My close buddy down in Florida was in a Walmart this afternoon and witnessed a mother and her child deliberately vandalizing Star Wars and other action figures because collectors like my friend "hog all the toys for themselves and won't let kids have them, so nobody's going to have them now!"

My friend recorded some of the good ol' fashioned family vandalism on his iPhone and turned it over to the store manager and the local cops for investigatory and prosecution purposes. He'd have sent it to me to send to the Star Wars collecting sites so they could discuss the criminal activity and irresponsible parenting, but he doesn't have possession of the phone footage anymore.

Wow. That kid was a brazen and stupid little brat, but his mother was a real turd for encouraging it and participating.
