Background / HistorySeries 10 was a very controversial series of minifigures as problems occurred from both fans and stores.
Many Toys "R" Us stores placed signs near the minifigure packets to tell fans that they had all been checked by staff for the Mr. Gold minifigure, and that any found are kept and presumably sold by the store due to it's high value.
Some major supermarkets also faced the problem of having people rip open each individual packet to find Mr. Gold (or any other minifigure they desired) and then stealing them.
As a result of this, some Sainsbury's stores in the UK were forced to place each individual packet inside a security protected case to prevent people from ripping open the packets in the hope of finding Mr. Gold.
