Being a huge Venom and Spider-Man 2099 fan I just wanted to get these two… except every single figures feels so similar to the other that it’s impossible to tell who is who in the package. Having a free afternoon and a few extra bucks in my pocket I decided to roll the dice and see if I can score the characters I wanted. I don’t recommend this practice as it never usually ends quickly or the way you want.
I grabbed a bunch of packages and walked up to the register. I told the lady I was going to buy one at a time and open each right there at the register until I get the one that I want. I of course let other customers through when they had one – but if not it was all me just sitting there opening package after package looking for Spidey 2099 or Venom!
If you’re familiar with this blog then you’ll know this is not an uncommon practice – I’ve done this before and usually the employees get into the whole experience with me. So, if you do the simple equation I snagged a Spider-Man, Black Cat, Gwenpool (mask and no mask), Parker, Goblin and 2 Spidey 2099 before I was able to snag a Venom.
