Hah! After the stories I've heard with all the wait times people had to endure, and the craziness to get some of the pieces for everyone... that's the least you could do.

For anyone next year asking for stuff... please don't cheap out :)

I guess it really depends on what the thing is, and how hard it is to get it, and what they want to do with it when they get it?

I muled several Hasbro toys for a buddy of mine here in Canada, and he paid me 70$. It was a nightmare getting them, I wouldn't do that same type specifically again for even 100$ :lol: But I wasn't making a business out of it, I was trying to help a buddy when I wasn't working.

Had a $50.00 item muled for me this year (first time i've done this). I provided the boardie with $105 for time and shipping. They (eckotyper) agreed and was able to score the print I wanted was that a fair amount? Just want to make sure i did my part so I know for the future.

thx

Really depends on what it is. I bought a Dragatomi Android Blindbox series for myself, and just walked up to the booth one morning and bought it. I'd mule something like that for free to help, no problem.

Getting some Hasbro exclusives turned out to be a whole-day thing, starting at 4am, waiting in 3 separate lines. It was a nightmare, not doing anything like that one again.

Getting KR exclusives seemed relatively quick and carefully planned/scheduled, so maybe it didn't take too many folks away from experiencing the show?

I asked a buddy and his girl if they could try to get us a Wilkowski Labbit well before the DKE schedule was out - he agreed to try for both for me. Then when the schedule came out he said that he and his girl werent going preview night. I was pretty bummed and even tried a couple other people last minute with no luck. Well - yesterday, not one but both colorways showed up via Priority Mail! Turns out they wanted to surprise us - between my buddy, his girl and 3 of her friends, they got 2 greens and a red. They only wanted a green so I got both!

I was so blown away that I paid him for ours and tipped him $150 to pay for his as well...

^^^ Very Proper thing to do
from SKET
"total disgrace, alot of artists have been screwed by mindstyle, this is a claim that can be backed up BIGTIME!. In fact we could write a book on it! I don't have a grudge cause my situation has been done n gone, but i know of many other HUNGRY people wanting to produce work who will never see what they so rightly deserve, payment and samples, and whatever mindstyle decides to do with your art...you will have no say or control"

Damn,you big tippers are making me look bad.

I will tip Mutantshark as much as I can afford as he is a Legend among Legends. Anyone who mules for us for the love of the vinyl deserves Legendary Status. Mutantshark (2 years running SDCC) and Ninjaskills (NYCC last year and hopefully this year) are truly great boardies and I cannot sing enough praise for them.

I slept through last years NYCC but was able to get the dead kenny doll anyway which made me happy... the box was broken but im happy... kenny is happily dead in my show case.

I dont kno wif i will be able to go to NYCC this year since we just had a baby and I most likely will not be able to leave her with anyone.
