    it happens sometimes. For monster high I have a Draculuara in one of the Abbey' packages, and for 200x I have a Rattlor with a Tri-klops insert for the name. for the most part they are nice oddities, every once in a while you can find a packaging oddity collector if you find enough of them you can get something out of the figure.

    This used to happen with shocking frequency in the 200x days if I remember right. As a result the error cards weren't worth anything.

    This happens occassionally in action figure lines, going all the way back at least to Kenner's Star Wars in the 70s and 80s. It was really noticeable with Toy Biz's earlier Marvel lines too. Generally, there's not real added worth to this type of thing, though people do sometimes keep/collect them as a novelty thing.

    This is not an unusual occurence in a normal retail line. You don't see it very often in MOTUC because the figures are usually not packaged at the same time. We have seen it happen a few times. Most recently, we saw the Fisto figures in the Sorceress white mailer boxes. However, in your situation, the Mer-Man and Hordak reissues (two of the few true reissues) were produced at the same time. That is how this strange packaging combination occured.

    If you are curious about "worth"... It is only going to be valuable to folks that collect packaging variations.

    Should be worth a few hundred thousand in a few years. Wealthy collectors live for these kinds of mistakes.

    It's funny you mention this. The 200x Green Carded Beast Man on Mer Man card is worth LESS the the actual Beast Man on his own card....this one is quit hard to find.

    I think it used to happen more frequently in the early days of Classics. I remember reading stories of it, though that may have just been the name inserts and not the actual cards. I remember that my reissue Hordak even came with the name insert of The Goddess lol.

    Agreed.

    Of the two-hundred-and-some odd number of Mer-Men that Matty shipped out (as apology gifts), you got the one that will now be worth a little more!
