This entire situation sucks.
So far I have spent $60.00 and over 15 hours on the road looking for them over the past 2 weeks or so.
For all that effort I should of just paid the Ebay price.
Here's my stories.
I live in Canada so I have to pay toll it $8.00 us round trip, I've gone out 3 or 4 times now looking for them? I can't remember.
I've also called quite a few stores I haven't gone to, and I'm coming up with nothing but reports of stuff in transit or on order.
Today they said, at one store, they were on order but the warehouse shows zero on hand, so he said it would be a week or so.
Now here is where the story gets worse.
9 days ago I was at the same store in the morning, got a girl to scan the # "there are 8 in transit so they'll be here tonight" she said. Unfortunately i work midnights and would be at work that night for when stock comes out and I can't call from work!
So I called 2 days later "yes we have 8 on hand but we can't find them" I found out after 17 minutes of waiting on the line.
So I went their the next day, I see the day toy manager, fat #%&@! I should say. This guy is completely unhelpful and misleading, to boot.
So I sent my Wife over to spy on fat#%&@! went over to electronics and got a young, unjaded, kid to scan the # and he says he'll go look for it.
In the meantime my Wife comes back and say's the Manager, I'm sorry, FAT #%&@! was going in the back.
About 5 minutes later the kid comes back with a box, but says it's GI JOE, which it was,
but someone had taken the shipping sticker off the Avengers case and put it on this one.
This way it appears as if they are still there but probably hidden.
I just gave up at that point which is very unlike me, but I really am getting too old for this arguing or kissing ass to get unprofessional people to do their job.
I swear, I think Fat #%&@ is a scalper I think I saw him with tables at Gibraltar Trade Center or some flea market years ago.
So that's my whacked out story, I am officially throwing in the towel and not looking for them, come onnnn reverse psychology, toy gods karma, then I might find them.
So with that said if anyone has any extras other than Iron Man, got him from WB Collect, at a reasonable price plus shipping, let me know.
I'll throw this out there as well, Remember, I make dioramas on a regular basis.
If you want something and you are fair and reasonable about it - and if it is worth my time and money, say $100.00 for the 5 figures including shipping. Maybe we could come to an agreement. You would get an awesome diorama and I would get my Avengers figs.
If negotiations go well.
The person would also have to be patient and give me about a month or so to build it and you would have to pay for the shipping on it.
Sorry I'm tight on funds right now.
I would also have to see the figures in your hands in a picture.
I would take your ideas and send you back pictures of the project as it is being done etc. etc.
Anyways, legal jargon aside.
Just remember, and this is very important, I'VE NEVER DONE OR OFFERED ANYTHING LIKE THIS TO ANYONE BEFORE.
SO YOU WOULD BE THE SOUL OWNER OF A ONE OF A KIND CREATION BY 66JEDIKILLER66.
if all goes well.
