View Full Version : Why black out words on package?

I asked this question in another thread :

"I just bought the Nightblade set at Toys rus. Why or what is the word before the word sword on the Strom Shadow description, for some reason it has been blacked out w/ a marker.. The same has been done just below that in front of the word whipstar. I thought maybe this was something Toys rus did, but when I opened it the paperwork inside has had the same words blacked out. Anyone know why or what, lmk. Thanks."

If the word is magnetic, why black it out? And not all "magnetics" were blacked out. Just seems weird to me.

It is the word Magnetic. Because the storm shadow figure does not have a magnetic sword, even though it might have, or it was a mistake.

Yeah, oftentimes it's when they change an accessory slightly, or decide the name of the accessory isn't what they meant. Star Wars does it all the time as they change in mid run. It's probably cheaper than throwing out all the old cards and printing new ones.
