My first day at the Con would have sucked big time if not for Kate and the Palisades crew. Do you guys have ANY idea of how HARD it was to get a friggin Keldor for someone?!?!?!?!?!?! I waited in line for at least 20 minutes for a TICKET with a bloody number that would tell me if I "WON THE CHANCE TO BUY THE FIGURE!!". And then I went back to pick it up, found out I was one of the "Lucky" winners who got the wonderful chance to buy one (and the stamped my pass...do they even WANT to sell these?!?!). I left the Con around 2:30 in a fit. And I wasn't even ALLOWED to purchase a Silver Boba Fett because I had a four day pass and they were only selling them to people with Thursday-only passes, after the line had been capped off from being a 3 to 4 hour wait. BULL.
Thusly, I'd like to take this opportunity to THANK PALISADES for picking up every toy company's slack (in regards to exclusives) in my eyes. I went to the Palisades Booth, spoke a few friendly words to Kate, asked for a Swedish Chef and Animal Tour Edition, paid for them, and was on my way (okay, after ogeling the Janice figure...so sue me.).
THANK YOU SO MUCH EVERYONE AT THE PALISADES CREW, whenever they get to see this. I'd post it over on the Palisades Board, but hey it's down. But man, thank God they know how to handle an exclusive.
