Can I start begging now?

Due to Mattel's incredibly ******* stupidity, Gleek is only available at SDCC.  Since the Wonder Dorks are pointless without their stupid blue monkey, I need someone going to please grab me a Wonder Twins set with Gleek (the twins are boxed and the monkey comes in a bag).  I'll reimburse cost plus a bit extra for your trouble if someone manages to get the complete set.

Let me know if someone can help.

Thanks.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Check out THIS POSTING.  Apparently Comic Con may have outgrown San Diego.

Comic-Con Mulls Move from San Diego
Lunacy? Heresy? Sacrilege?
Common sense? Necessary? Just business?
 According to a report in Variety, once again Comic-Con International: San Diego is toying with the idea of dropping the “San Diego” portion of its name and pulling up stakes in favor of Los Angeles or Las Vegas.
 “We can't accommodate the people we need to,” Comic-Con marketing director David Glanzer complained to the entertainment industry journal. “(This year) we had a wait list of exhibitors in excess of 300. We sold out before the doors even opened.”
 The convention, which began with about 300 people at a local hotel, has grown into a multi-media event around which Hollywood studios, toy companies, publishers and video game manufacturers plan major marketing pushes. More than 125,000 people have attended the last two shows.
 “Yet as the event has exploded in popularity over the past decade, organizers have found it increasingly hard to ignore the logistical limitations presented by wrangling more than 125,000 attendees into the San DiegoConvention Center, where the show is booked through 2012. From fire-code violations to body-odor issues, overcrowding is the complaint on everybody's lips,” Gregory Ellwood wrote for Variety.
 In addition to the size of the convention center, the relatively inexplicable hotel reservation system and the cost of hotel rooms took a beating in the feature.
 Los Angeles, which reportedly made a big run at taking the con away previously, and Las Vegas, are again named as cities vying for the show. No mention is made of the extra expenses fans and exhibitors would incur as a result of those moves, such as rental cars and parking.

Hey, I don't doubt it.  I love the local toy show, which is small by comparison of course, but the BO factor is off the number chart and into the "holy ****, i gotta change aisles" category at times. 

I think it's a hazard of the hobby though, unfortunately.

Does anyone know where I could download a copy of Hasbro's PowerPoint presentation?

I'm going tommorow, hopefully it's not too crowded or smelling bad.
