I know this happened a couple weeks ago during the Rams/49ers awful MNF game, but they keep playing it on the local sports radio station and it makes me laugh each time - The guy is drunk!
I ordered two cases of the online only wave, the second case solely to get a second Royal Guard. I ended up selling the extra Ahsoka to McMetal, popped it in a bubble mailer and it apparently got crushed in transit to him. Always felt bad about that one so I'm glad he has a chance to get a MOC one (or for me to make that one up to him).
I fully expected the possibility of getting shut down. I didn't even bother to argue, because it wasn't worth it. I can just go back to the same store on Friday.
I just found it annoying that they put that much new stock out without heeding the street date instructions on the cases.
