Met up with Figgy B over at Burbank TRU this morning. They put out 1 case of Wave 6 & I grabbed the 2 McSnowies. The cards were purposely bent on two different corners (I mean REALLY bent as in folded over) and there was a razor blade cut in one of the bubbles. Pretty funny because I noticed Dazed & Confused was working and I was suprised the McSnowies made it to the pegs for once. Then I got a look at the cards. Doesn't matter to me since I was going to open them, but it still made me shake my head. I guess D&C got his fill of them before but didn't want anyone else to score so he destroyed the cards. The rest of Wave 6 had mint cards, of course.
Not sure which is worse at this point - Burbank TRU or Burbank KB. Speaking of Burbank KB, stopped by there the other night and some Forrest Gump looking guy in a KB uniform came up to me: "Are yew lookin' for anythin' in parrrticular?" I was like, "Yeah, do you have any new SW figures?" He went in the back to check, but he came out with nothing as I figured. "Yew should try our store downstairs - we have lotsa them Star Wars down there." I just laughed in his face. Next thing you know, the manager of KB (or is he the former manager...not sure) comes walking in: "You looking for Star Wars? Oh yeah, check out the store on the first floor." Another mind-boggling experience.
Anyway, Burbank TRU also put out one case of the new CARS - grabbed a Pit Crew Fillmore and a Pit Crew Hudson Hornet - they had the rest of the wave but someone else grabbed 'em. Saw Plumber Bob and he had a bagful of Johnny Lightnings, but no CARS. Not sure who grabbed them.
Then some goof in the parking lot asked me where to get the new CARS and I told him to try Panorama City Walmart. Hopefully he gets gangbanged over there.
