Yesterday, during my travels for work, I came across these 3-packs at a drugstore in rural Utah:
One was at the front of the pegs, the other two buried toward the back. Can you see what is wrong?
Take a closer look. At first glance everything is normal.
That Firebird in green at the top looks right at home, doesn’t it? The only problem is it is a Matchbox.
Before you pass this off as a standard “buy pack – take model – return with replaced model” scenario, let me assure you these packs were not opened. You can always tell a homemade job, and these aren’t. Factory sealed.
So how did a Matchbox model get in there? I have no idea. The reason is probably as interesting as watching paint dry, but there is an explanation out there.
Has anyone else encountered these?
