So it turns out there was TWO different ACME companies represented at the Con! Found the right one today and picked you up a Grevious key Dale. Hope you still want it!

Sweet!     You bet I still want it, I'll send ya a PM.  :)

Another ACME company, hmmm...   :D

Ben:

Darla from Buffy the Vampire Slayer
"Bloody" Marv from Sin City

Well, I did some pretty good damage to this list, but unfortunately wasn't able to get everything for everyone.  Real sorry about that, but I ran out of time during my brief (1 day) stay, and I couldn't even carry anything more by the end of the day anyway (had about 10 bags).  BTW, the Holographic Leias (with Starcase) were $15 each, not $14 as I'd previously thought...

I've already PM'd most of the folks I got stuff for, but have a couple more to go at this point.  I'll try to contact the last couple people soon, so the rest can keep an eye on SWS.com for the Holo Leias when they presumably show up in the next day or two (like the C3 Vaders did after C3).

- Matt

Matt, you honestly don't get enough praise for helping people out...  Some guys talk big game about what they do for the hobby, but you actually put your $ where your mouth is and always go the extra mile to help everyone out that you can...

You got my respect bud...  You do more than the vast majority to make the hobby "better" for people, and give a lotta guys peace of mind that you will help them out if it's at all possible.

A general vote of thanks, not just for your efforts at this year's SDCC, but all the other efforts I know you go to, to make sure Star Wars collecting fun for people.  Thanks man.

I'd like to echo those sentiments.  I know you'll just brush them off as "something that anyone would do", but seriously, I've never seen anyone go out of their way as much as you to help guys get what they need from these conventions.

Thank you.   :)

Your opinion might not be so high if you ever saw him drunk.   :P

Matt, went back to a store -out of his way- to get me a fig he had just returned the previous day! I really needed that charred Annie. It's great to have people like that, that help out. A guy on RS passed several CW SA Clones on to me when they were impossible to find (actually, they were always impossible to find...). I don't feel like I've given much back to the community. :-\ Seems like I usually either can't find anything good before anyone else does, or I'm just flat broke.

Hey!  What the hell's going on in here?!?  This is the Comic Con thread, not the Feedback Forum.  You folks better get your asses back on topic or I'm gonna have to close this one down and ban you all...  >:(

Besides, anyone else would do the same, I'm sure.  :P



And Jason's full of ****.  I'm an excellent drunk, dammit.  :-X

Nothing like Matt coming in and going all GNT(T) on us to totally dispell all this happy sappy talk.  Nice.
