Not Amused

(no subject)

Shortpacked!@TNI: Mike's first prediction comes true.
Shortpacked!: And again!

Man, there was such a brouhaha over Pimp Daddy Destro at SDCC. It was a fuckin' mess, dudes. Seriously, I don't even want to talk about it, other than to say it involved one poor HasbroToyShop guy with a small box of tickets (to allow one to get in line to buy toys) and a swarm of about two hundred people. I wouldn't be surprised if one or two HasbroTS dudes are hospitalized right now. It was not good. Not good at all.

There was shoving.

Destros sold out on Thursday. Thursday! And alas, I made off with neither the silver or the gold-headed version, which deflated me thoroughly for the rest of the convention. Man. Well, eBay time.

Titanium Series Menasor also sold out, but I did manage to snag Alternators Rodimus midway through Sunday thanks to two generous readers who loved me so much that they independently sought me out to tell me that tickets were no longer required to get in line for buying exclusives. I am eternally grateful.

I've uploaded more SDCC toy photos to my LJ gallery, including some shots of Star Wars Transformers Death Star/Darth Vader, JLU Joker, and Hilarious Emo Peter Parker. Enjoy, and be sure to browse through pictures I have not linked directly.
