I had a great NYCC Pop hunt today. The only bad thing about it was the cold, rainy weather. This is the first time I wasn't paying close attention to the details online throughout this process, so I actually showed up at the mall yesterday, not knowing that they pushed the release date back a day. I returned today, an hour late, but me and one other guy that was at the same stores at the same time appeared to be the first Pop hunters to buy anything. I got my top want at HT, Captain Rex, and he bought Rex and the 6-inch DBZ Pop. This is the first time my local HT received 6-inch convention Pops. They just simply never got any of the previous ones.
At B&N they had a table packed full again. They especially had a ton of Beric Dondarrion, my only other purchase. I chatted a little bit with the other hunter there about Game of Thrones and the Pops they had. We talked about how the 3-pack would of been something to consider at a lower price, but at the absurd price of $40, we both skipped it.
I decided to skip GS and FYE, since they had nothing I wanted.
I got both of the Pops I went there for, so it was a good day.
