I was in KB Toys yesterday looking for Lord of the Rings figures for myself and Star Wars for a friend. One of the associates saw me looking at the T.I.E. Fighter/Pilot KB exclusive and asking my buddy if it was a variation (as I could have sworn that the one I got from KBToys.com had an insert depicting a hanger bay and not the Death Star trench). He comes up to me and tells me that he too got the hanger insert in the mail and that yes, this is a variation. Then he procedes to tell me about the Jorg Sacul figures that they are recieving at 1 per 100 cases and that they got a case that accidentaly came with two JS's in it.
About this time, my buddy (who is hearing the entire exchange via my cell phone) tells me he knows this guy and he is full of crap (which I was 63% of the way toward figuring out all by myself). Then the guy throws off all the covers to reveal himself as a true liar by telling me that there is a T.I.E. Fighter Pilot variation of Jorg Sacul.
I wonder why people feel the need to create such idiotic stories. The only explanation I can think of is that they are desparate for attention because they are too socially unskilled to develope a friendship.
On the other hand, I did Buy two of the T.I.E. Fighters because I collect errors and there were three of them with the ship packaged upside-down. Now I need to do some research to see if he opened them and turned the ships upside-down himself.
