The Silver Clones finally hit Central PA...I had my name on a list at the TRU near Williamsport and finally got the call. bbbuuutttt...I got figures meant for someone else. Ya know folks, last time I checked, when my first and last name are not on the sticky note, and I don't recognize the phone number either, it's a sure bet that the TRU animal handler should not hand over the goods!
I pointed this out and got the weakest excuse...the guy, kinda didn't materialize??? I was actually told this-am I lost in a Star Trek episode? I told the clerk I didn't want to take figures meant for someone else and she kinda got....well...very angry. When I asked if there was even anything held for me, she pointed out then that they got in a limited quantity and OOOPS didn't have enough. SOOO, if you had one or two or four on hold and didn't jump right down to get 'em, your stock got sold. What is going on???? This is simply awful and judging from the way TRU handles their customer relations there is a potential time-bomb ready to go off.
Whoever this guy was, I know his "note with phone number" got tossed; I watched it. Unless the clerk goes dumpster divin', if this guy shows up, well, even though he had figures on hold, he ain't gettin any. The clerk said they were out and would not be getting anymore.
The figure does, as had been reported, look like a near-empty spray paint can of fauz silver was used to paint the clone. In the warm 60 degree PA sun, it didn't exactly radiate that mirror-quality of other fine silver metal-vac'd figures of old. As an opener, I was suprised at the...glue is it?....used to keep the gun in place. I was also shocked to see a rather large human hair stuck in the glue on the figure's left "barrel" hand.
Bad paint jobs are one thing, human hair in the figure is entirely another.
Speaking of bad paint jobs, you can reference my reply in the LA just found forum for more info, but there is one, count 'em, one Ozzel at the Walmart near Williamsport. The face is not only gravy stained, but Yakuza sliced. A good buy for people who want the ever-elusive choked and facially soiled variant!
