OK, so there were "exclusive figures" from Gentle Giant at the San Diego Con. I couldn't go. Then on this past Thursday I get an email from Gentle Giant that the so called exclusive figures are now on sale to the premium club members but that on Saturday August 2nd, that's today, they would to on sale to the general public. Well if you follow the link provided in the email, they go to a error page that the link is outdated. On that page is a link to their blog. They have the same thing posted there with links. The links there also go to a dead end but there is a place to make comments. I was not alone. There are 54 so far of ticked off club members and fans about this. Most of them are avid Star Wars fans who wanted certain exclusives and they are the ones that are really mad. Me, I just wanted the Fred and George Weasley busts. A couple of others mentioned them as well.
No one is at Gentle Giant today so nothing is being done about it. People are furious with them. Even the phone number posted on their site is wrong. I went to E-Bay and did a search for the Fred and George Weasley busts and found one guy who had them up for $5.00 more that GG was asking, so I got them. Paid by Pay Pal instantly and it's done.
Added my two cents to the blog comments and told them they were losers. They are going to lose a lot of fans and club members over this. A horrible way to run a business and a horrible way to treat fans and customers.
