Dont want to brag or anything, but Santa put something extra pretty
into my Christmas stocking early. I was out last night, and found
a golden Dooku sitting pretty right there on the shelf at my local Suncoast.
Im gonna keep it in the dark until Christmas eve, and put it into Dad's (my)
stocking. My son (who's getting a Vader mini in his) will be excited also.
This makes my 3rd goldie. I got the golden Obi AFB via PSWCS bud Jack, and
the golden Cloney-Wan via another PSWCS bud, Tronz. Yesterday's score
was my first lucky break with the minis. Frankly, Id been to store after store,
asking if ANYONE had ever seen a golden mini actually get PUT onto a shelf.
A coupla guys had confessed that they had, but employees scooped them up;
and they never actually hit a shelf for a lowly collector to buy (for the std $35
price). So this post serves to restore everyone's hope, that sometimes these
*do* slip through, and can be found. Too bad the odds are maybe 3720:1.
