Default Good News Everybody!

Well, after 4 years of bitching at Graffiti about this bullshit raffle they do, I am pleased to announce that they STOPPED doing it this year!!!!

I just got back from Wondercon and the GL Exclusives have been completely available when you walk up to the booth! No Wait! No Raffle! Apparently it was like this yesterday too when they opened! Keep that in mind for those going to C2E2 Next week!

UNFORTUNATELY The Amazing Larfleeze that we've all been pining over fell a little short. The paint job is Horrible and spotty. The insides of the joints aren't even painted, it's like he was painted standing up and thats it. He's fine if you leave him standing, but make sure to check the exterior paint job too, I need to do a few touch ups on him, but Guy is awesome!

wow, validity? Is that how much we don't trust people on here? This used to be a great community.

As one of the ones bitching about this raffle since 2009, why would I have the need to make this up? And how could a picture prove anything? It could easily have been as simple as not taking a picture of the the raffle sign. They never once had it plastered at the booth that there was a raffle.

Don't believe me, fine. Don't go to the con because of a possible raffle and pay double for them on eBay.

But it happened and I was just sharing for my friends on here that hate the raffle as much as I do.

And I you

Seriously though careful with the larfleeze the joints are tough cause it was painted after it was assembled. Otherwise, pretty cool figure.

Good to know. Which means the figures will probably be on Graffiti's website after C2E2 and I'm sure they'll be at SDCC.

I know last year at SDCC, Graffiti did away with the raffle on the third day of the con.

Man, I really hope WonderCon comes back to San Francisco. It couldn't come back to SF this Easter Weekend because of the gamer's convention.

They actually had a few John and Atrocitus 2 packs left.

Ill probably hate myself for saying this but I want it to go back to SF too. Each time it's here I've never enjoyed it and if it comes to paying eBay prices for the one exclusive I want, I wouldn't be tempted to drive 5 hours, get a hotel, and buy it. It would save me the headache. I spent 2.5 hours getting off the free way and parking for it Saturday.

Good to know that the raffle nonsense has been eliminated... at least for now. Hope you had a good time at the show, Hazard.

For SDCC, they might have a different exclusive. They've had something different almost every year thus far. Maybe it'll be Bleez and Hal.
