[Update: Reading is fundamental! I posted this thinking the sale was today, but it’s next week. Oops!]
I often miss living in NYC (rarely during the oppressive summers or freezing cold winters, though), and today is one of those days.
Starting in a short while at Noon EST On Friday next week, Mezco is opening up their vault and making some unique items available for sale to collectors like you and me.
So if you’re in the Tri-State area,
now’s next Friday the time to tell your boss that you’ve come down with a summer cold, and get your butt to Mezco in Long Island City and pick up some loot. I’d be there if I could!
