My great story...
Thursday I called my friend in California just to say hi and see what he has been up to. He answers the phone and I can barley hear him with all the noise in the background. I'm like "where are you"? He says, "I'm at the Con". I was like dude you’re kidding me!?!? Can you check out the GI Joe booth? And he says he will call me back when he gets there.
20 minutes he calls me back and says he is at the booth. I ask if they are selling the Cobra Commander Exclusive. He said yes. I ask him if he can pick me up one or two. He said he would try. He called me back 15 minutes later and says he was on line then realized that he was on the line to get tickets to get onto the line for buying the figure. I told him to forget it but he says he is staying on line because now he wants one too. Then a guy comes and says no more toys will be sold today. Everyone in line of coarse is very upset. Then another guy comes out and picks like 8 to 10 people out of a crowd of many and brings them in a back room and tells them that they are the last people to get toys today. Well to my luck my friend was one of these 8 to 10 people. Then the guy tells them that they need the ticket and the Con pass in able to get the exclusive. My friend didn't have any off them.
So now my friends back there with a small group of people waiting to get the Cobra Con exclusive and he doesn't have a ticket and he lost his Con pass. He calls his friend and asks him to bring over his Con pass to use. So his friend obliges and brings my friend his pass to use. But now he still needs the ticket to get the exclusive. Well the people next to him overhear him and tell him they have an extra ticket that he can have. So he wound up getting me a blue Cobra Commander Exclusive and a blue and black one for himself.
I was soooo happy! I couldn't believe what had just transpired just because I made a phone call to a friend out of the blue. The only beat thing is that he didn't get me a black one to go along with the blue, but beggars can't be choosers.
