    Hey Dennis-I don't know exactly what you guys are gonna have, but if possible, could you snag any James Bond display kinda stuff that Best Buy has? The first 2 box sets come out this Tuesday, and if there's any cool POP(point of purchase NOT Princess of Power)stuff that they're gonna throw out after they're done, I'd gladly take it!

    I would have come to the meeting, but five hours of driving would have been a bit much.

    I'm sorry, I just read this thread far too much.

    Sounds like you guys had fun. Glad to hear it.

    Skullface, if you are interested, Cornerstonecomics.com all of a sudden is taking more orders for ML 15 variants, but they jacked up the price. I broke down and ordered the variants for Wasp (Red), Moon Knight, and Spider-Woman. The others are sold out. They are also taking orders for the variants for 14. I ordered them all expect the Psylocke variant which sold out. That's my own fault for debating about placing the order or not all day.

    I'm not too worried about the preorders that sold out on the variants. I know a lot of the other online stores haven't even got 14 in stock, and none of them got 15 at all. I'm sure once they all get them, there will be plenty to choose from off of e-bay. Speaking of which, some dumb... paid $202 for a Blue Wasp variant.

    BTW - I know want to explain all the problems I've had as of late, but I'm never shopping at Best Buy again. I even closed out my Best Buy card with them. Nobody believes in customer service anymore, and no one believes the customer is right anymore. This now brings my "enemy list" up to:
    Wal-Mart
    Best Buy
    Jewel
    Dominick's
    France
    China

    Clearly, the solution is this: you need to go to college somewhere in Chicago so you can hang out with us more.

    If anybody is thinking of buying a Nintendo Wii from Target on launch day, here's how to find out the expected amount your store will be getting:

    http://wickedsick.org/wii_finder/index.php?str=

    Type in the zip code, town or the store number if you have it.

    Seems like most stores are looking to have between 40-60, with some exceptions.

    Target walks the line. If I could find another store to shop I would.

    Dennis didn't do anything wrong. But I'm sure his store has the same $7 per hour help walking around with no clue as to what planet they are on, much less how to help a customer.

    I bought it last night at 12:01. Haven't gotten much sleep since. It's awesome, but some of the vocals suck.

    Hey guys... I see you are all still alive... thats good.

    I got an email a week or two ago and meant to pass it on to you... got my contact from the web site, so maybe you already have been contacted... not sure as I haven't read the threads in a while... so if so, just disregard ::

    Hi Kevin,

    My name is Adam with the sketch comedy troupe Q5. We recently performed a sketch show called "Skeletor's Talk Show," and uploaded it to youtube. We
    perform in Chicago and figured this show would really appeal to the Chicago
    Horde.
    Please give it a view, and if you like it, and want to link it from your
    site, that would be appreciated.

    Thanks!

    Adam, Jeff and Jay
    Q5

    :::

    Anyway, hope you are all well!
    Kev!
