This guy found a vintage Gamorrean Guard at an Kmart that was closing down.

I'm calling B.S.  That guy brought a figure into a K-Mart and did a video for cheap clicks on Youtube.

Agreed. I saw that video last week, you'll notice we never see the Gamorrean when he goes to the price scanner. The only time in the entire video he was sure not to show the figure is when he "scans" it to get a price. Total BS

I've heard stories about vintage stock turning up at the odd K-mart before.  But it seems almost like a collecting urban legend at this point.

The chain definitely has a lot of history, and some of these store locations have been operating for decades.  It definitely doesn't seem feasible that something like this could happen if the store has reasonably competent management.  But I don't think that something like this is a complete impossibility

I’ll say legit.

About 10 years ago, a local TRU did a major remodel and in a spot where they were moving the shelving into a new configuration there was a pile of debris.  Dirt, papers etc. and there were a few toys that looked like they had been found between or underneath the shelving and one of them was a vintage ESB Dengar. I asked to buy it but was shot down. It was in similar shape as this one.

Calling BS too.  Nobody doing YT videos didn't tape this whole experience immediately.  Don't know the guy, don't care, just calling BS haha.
