Let me tell you, this was a VERY
hard set to obtain. After the the first day of the con, it seemed as if eveyone
desired this $40 tin of plastic. Of course, I was one of those people. On the second day, I got in line for the con about 1 and 1/2 hours before it opened. No luck. The line for the exclusive had already wrapped around the LEGO booth by the time I entered the floor.
Oh yeah, did I mention that LEGO was allowing 2 exclusives per person? And since they were selling 250 sets a day, you pretty much had to be one of the first 125 people in line to even have a chance
of getting one. If all that
wasn't enough, they were allowing the exhibitors to get in line for the exclusives as well. On the third day of the con, I got in line 3 hours before it started, just to ensure that I'd get one. This time when I got in, I ran
to the LEGO booth. But there was already a huge line, longer than the previous day's. I had accepted that I wasn't getting one that day, but then I spotted a member of the fan site "Jedi News
" closer to the front of the line. I told him that I visited his site every day, and asked him whether or not he was buying 1 or 2 sets. He said he was buying one, so I kindly asked him if I could give him $40 so he could buy me one. He accepted, and about 20 minutes later I had myself a Star Wars Celebration VI exclusive! Woo-Hoo!
On the last day of the convention I got there 3 hours early once again, in hopes of buying extras. But alas, I'd wasted my time. The line at the LEGO booth was already very long by the time I'd arrived. So that's my story about how I obtained my set, and thanks for using up a few minutes of your free time to read about it. Bye!
