Yep, current location lets me get online but no outgoing emails. Kinda weird and they can't figure it out. Anyway, I have it saved in a draft and will send as soon as I get home tonight.

The stores are piled high with unsold submarine McMissiles. A toy car without wheels, not very kid friendly. Maybe should always have been for collectors only.

Since I live in Los Angeles I checked a couple of prices to see how much it would cost to help a few members out.
$47 one day non-member show ticket
$12 minimum parking at the Anaheim Convention Center (let's assume my time and gas are free)

Mattel is asking $19.95 for Finn + local sales tax (Orange County, CA 7.75%) $1.55 = $21.50

So for six Finns, $47+$12+$129= $188/6 = $31.33 each and then shipping to each of around $10? (48 states?) or about $42 per Finn.

Just seems like too many hoops to go through because Mattel was not willing to do their own shipping. 🙁

I would have felt differently if this was a unique casting like Barry Diesel.

I will keep an eye out at the Mattel Company store and if they turn up there after the show I will post immediately.
