There have been numerous posts like this over the years and it seems only right that we concoct a nefarious plan to foil the evil schemes of scalper-jerks.Originally posted by Wonderboy
Jasner: I hit the Target in Burbank this morning...there were about 6 Hot Wheels guys there. They totally hit the SW stuff first now before they even head to Hot Wheels...what a bunch of JERKS! As we were waiting for them to open, one of the guys was talking about how much he has been getting for SW toys at some swap meet. I actually spoke up and told him that I thought what he was doing was just crap and he laughed and replied "I'm a business man..." What an idiot...I wanted to leap on his back and chew his ear off.
Try this next time you're out. While the evil-ones are hitting the Star Wars aisle first, let them.
Casually head over to the HotWheels section and clear the pegs into a cart or two. Then don't buy them. Just stand there with that passive-aggressive look on your face. It'll work better if you've got back up to ward off their attempts to dip into your cart. But then you've got leverage. Fair trade your entire cart for their ill-gotten figs.
Who's with me!
