So yeah, Friday I took my Wifey to see Duran Duran in concert in Boston, and it was an absolutely fantastic show. Every song a crowd-pleaser. Great time. I said in a sarcastic tone to the Missus that afterwards we'd have to stop by Toys R Us on the way home (the timing was about right)...as a co-worker and fellow SW nut informed me Toys R Us was doing this event.... so Sure enough I get off the Pike at 12:10AM, and look at the Wife, who woke up as I was paying the toll...and she goes "So, are we stopping (in a thoroughly apathetic tone)...so I goes "Hell Yeah", to spite her. We get there and there's like maybe 25 cars there. As we walk to the storefront, you can see a HUGE Darth Vader display. I wasn't prepared for what I saw next. A mix of the finest SW geeks ever assembled, a bunch of collectors, and my co-worker and me. The Wife soon departed from the geek-off to wander the store. I witnessed people pushing each other out of the way to get certain figures. People spewing off about a special Yoda thing that was an exclusive and the obligatory "I'm not leaving without one, and there's only 5" comments... Now there's a little part of me that just cannot let go of my SW addiction, but I was completely embarrassed to see myself reaching for figures out of the box as the guy was trying to shelf them. I stopped after 3 figures, and promptly came back down to Earth, and got what I wanted: a Jedi Starfighter for me, and one for my Son Jake. Got out of there right quick, before anyone else spotted me. What I don't understand is these people were buying FULL cartloads of figures. Doubles, triples, quadruples of the same figures. WHY?!? I understand some collectors are deluded enough to think that in some way one of these may become rare...but really. Insanity. I can now say I lived thru a toy presale with a modicum of dignity intact. Not much, but.... Did I mention Duran Duran was really good? I've never heard Simon LeBon sound better.
