50$ + shipping + customs for a simple exclusive but cool figure .And then having to fight with bots and be at a specific moment with no guarantee of securing one?

By happenstance I was online at the right time - I had no idea this was going up for sale when it did and for the limited time that it was. I could have just as easily said ''I'll order it later'' as I often do.

I don't buy much these days so the price was tolerable for me.

Got him!

Glad they offered a second chance as at my job I didn't have access to the sale on Friday to order. So gave it shot today and was pleasantly surprised at the smooth transaction. I was expecting a nightmare. But not so.

I went to the anniversary screening with my Dad for father's day on Sunday. It was awesome to finally see The Thing in a theatre. He saw it back in 82 while in the Marines.

It was annoying how many people showed up late, there were still people finding their seats 10 minutes after it started. Plus, I noticed at least two children. Not sure why they were brought to an R rated movie.

I saw it on the big screen for the first time on Sunday too, I think it's my favorite movie after Alien. The were a few people show up late to it also...it seemed to not have any trailers in front of the movie to sit through before it started and I think it caught those people by surprise.

I'm looking forward to new NECA figures, hopefully there is a Palmer-thing on the horizon at some point.
