BOO!

Post by another_waver » Sun Apr 29, 2007 3:13 pm

Meet Boo.

http://www.wonderwall.co.jp/products/ww/boo/index.htm

I assume most people have seen Boo before but you may
not know the backstory behind Boo... so here it is in a nutshell.

A new creature was discovered on an uninhabited island and we humans
caught a bunch of them, boxed them up, and brought them back to the
city for study. But Boos are fiercely independent and mischievous creatures—
you can't just lock them up and study them and expect that they're just
going to let you. Uh-uh. So of course they escaped.

Image

Catching a Boo is no easy task. They are incredibly well-adapted to a
life on the run. They have the ability to change their colors according
to their environment, much like a chameleon.

Image

We have continued to chase them for years, but they always seem to get
away... because they never stay in one place for too long...

Image

...

Yesterday I heard it through the Touma grapevine that some of the mini-Boos that had escaped from the Los Angeles facility had been spotted! I rushed to the scene and captured two mini-Boos.

Here is one of them playing with my ratty old baseball cap...

Image

and the other trying to lay a rap on a knuckle bear (who, incidentally,
didn't seem to be having any of it).

Image

So anyway... long story short... I only turned my back for a second!
I swear!... they escaped again. I had already tagged them so I can
track them but I won't be able to approach them again. Too skittish
around me now. So I need help.

The tracking collar places them on the 3rd Street Promenade in Santa
Monica. I would assume they're probably in the vicinity of the old KR,
they have strong instincts like those turtles who go to the same place to lay
their eggs every year. So I'd assume they're somewhere nearby. However,
it is highly doubtful that they have remained looking the way they do above.
Most likely they will have gone into a defensive mindset, blending
themselves into their environments and laying low.

If you can help, meet me down there. If you can catch one, I'll give you
a KR Goodie bag containing the following: S3 Tilt, S3 Attaboy, S3 Pardee,
S3 Mishka, S3 Friends With You, S3 CW, LA Series Fawn Hoodie, LA
Series Hollywood, LA Blaine Stitch, Blue mini-Goon, YoyaMart mini-Goon
and an S3 Abe OR a Blank White 16" Bear Qee. First one to return a mini-
Boo to me gets their choice. Second mini-Boo returned gets whichever
prize is left.

First four people to "check-in" and say hi get a mini-Boo keychain. I'll
wear my hat so you recognize me. :)

Anybody who stops by to find the escaped Boos and says hi gets a free
mini-fig (only up to 25 people, after that you just get a "hi, how are ya").

Boos never stay in one place for too long, so this is all gonna be over by 6:00!

Fun stuff. Well, I decided since I'm not too far from the Promenade I'd take a painting break and cruise on down. Good choice- I found Boo #2 and scored the big rump Qee Bear :D

Both the first and second place prizes are gone, but he still has a big bag of loot and I don't think he wants to take it home with him, so go on down and say hi.

Big thanks to Mark for doing this fun giveaway.

Hey all, I called it a day at 5:00 instead of 6:00... I'm pretty sure it was well over at that point so if anyone was down there looking for me after 5:00, send me a pm and I'll get something out to you. :)

Anyway, it was nice to meet some board people today (even got a chance to talk to someone about maybe doing a custom for me).

The big prizes went to Vinylwhanker and RC44—congrats!

No these LA Boos are pretty provincial, they don't even go to the Valley.



Quick side story—I had a large green KR bag loaded up with blind boxes and was hanging out near where KR used to be... a lot of people would walk up, see the bag, do a double-take at the store (or where the store used to be), then look back at the bag, the store, the bag... and then their faces would just kind of scrunch up like some fuse in their brain blew. Heheh.
