View Full Version : Sigma 6 Mint On Card-ers...Package Variation Alert

So my local Wal-Mart gets another shipment of Sigma 6 figures. It's only the second shipment that has ever been seen there or in this town for that matter (small town). The last shipment was series one and that was a few weeks ago. This shipment was the current Commando wave with Destro and all. I picked up a couple since they were so minty fresh thinking I can swap them up for the ones I have that aren't so minty fresh (freakin' customs). Get the packages home only to find out...

THE CANADIAN PACKAGING IS COMPLETELY DIFFERENT THEN THE AMERCAN.

And not in a good way. There's an incredible difference between the two. No character art on the front. No file card on the back. Stickers were stickers shouldn't be. Words were words shouldn't be or missing all together. And yes...the infamous...bilingual text. Anyhow pics are at the end. It really puts me in a "the do I do now" kinda mood. The Canadian version looks cheap to be honest. But it likely will be more rare. Ugh. And yeah I know...the openers are just going to say..."if you opened them up...you wouldn't have that problem." Which of course...they are right.
Onto the pictures!!!

Cybersteak, thanks for posting about these!!!

I wonder if the Canadian issue figures will be available nationwide in the US? What state did you find these in?

I'm from Ontario Canada. I should note that these appear to be international packages. Didn't realize at first but besides having french on the package, there's also spanish.
