I have a few of these things now – pretty happy with the haul. Most of the people I talked to gave me a strange story of how they “donate” all this stuff to children’s charities or schools. Most of which was baloney. The BK guy told me that he gives it to a school in Plymouth. I asked which one and he said the Elementary one. There is about a dozen Elementary Schools in Plymouth. He didn’t know which one he gave it to. Listen, If you’re not going to give me the stuff – just say no – don’t concoct some elaborate lie about how you’re a good guy donating to schools.
But some of the people I talked to were extremely pleasant and didn’t have a second thought about giving the promo stuff (which happens to be thrown away when they are done with it) giving this stuff a second home! In my collection! The people at Circuit City – who had no clue about what there exclusive Hulk DVD did – were very happy to hand this over. I was psyched!
The man who runs the Blockbuster near me was very glad to save the Hulk stuff for me. He was such a nice guy and even gave me a few of those little backer cards as well. He saved the display and the advertising standee for their DVD exclusives.
