I'm sure most of us here have caught a collecting bug at least a time or two. Recently I contacted a fever Rick and Morty mystery minis. These little figures have reawakened the dormant virus. Many years as an avid collector of Marvel's Mighty Muggs and legends lines as well as the short lived DC Universe Classics.
I knew first hand what it took to collect. The rabid frenzy searching every store making calls and the anxious rounding of the corner to see what was on the rack. The thrill of finding the missing figures from the waves. The mystery minis are a tad bit different though as the name would entail the blind boxes provide a daunting and frustrating challenge. It can be a money sink so trying to find them all is well in a word dumb.
So tell me why I have all the first wave. It's a fever I have a problem I know. There are other options to help with the search EBAY. Yes the long known EBAY can be a help when searching for almost anything but you are at the will of the sellers. The high prices can be exorbitant. So what to do!? I need my fix. That's not to mention the rarities. That's another whole can of worms. 1/72 72!?! It's just wrong. So with the odds stacked against me I soldier on trying to find the rarest of the rare. So I devised a diabolical plan but keep it on the low.
Here is the scoop; a weight scale. The grams never lie. So off I go at the Walmart with a sheet full of weights that I already had. So I'm innocently weighing the boxes and cross referencing weights when it happens... Security asks me what I'm doing and so I come clean. I'm escorted out buy an armed guard! AN ARMED GUARD!! I was able to weasel my way out of a intent to distribute charge. I guess it's back to EBAY I go.
