So, I apologize that I'm posting again so soon (there will be another post tomorrow night with any luck, then I'm going AWOL for a week or two), but I wanted to give some info on the 20th Anniversary Darkrai plush and figures.
So, I went to two Gamestops this morning in order to get my figure and plush. I have had confirmation from the manager at a Gamestop that each store is receiving two plush, and six figures. At this time, she said that they don't know if there will be a restock, so I'd get them ASAP if possible, so you can avoid scalper prices.
Speaking of scalpers, I have a funny story. I arrived to my local Gamestop at 10:06 this morning, and a woman had purchased the last plush, and two figures, leaving no plush and three figures, after 6 minutes of the store being open. So, there's a second Gamestop about fifteen minutes away that didn't open until eleven. My Dad decided to tag along on my adventure, so we went there to wait for about half an hour. We ended up camping out outside the door, to be first in to get the plush (I got the figure at the first store), when lo and behold, the woman from the first store shows up waiting behind us, trying to edge around us. After a few minutes, four more people lined up, and the store opened. Luckily, the woman at the counter led us in in the order we were waiting, so I was able to get my plush, but the woman got the last one, and some more figures as well. Now comes the funny part- my Dad has never dealt with scalpers, and he was furious! I was chuckling to myself about that.
So as a warning- the scalpers are out to round up the darkrai merch, so get them ASAP!!!
Here be my spoils by the way :3
Talk to you all soon! :D
