Scalpers, fucking you out of New York Comic Con Tickets, and Quiet......As of 2015!!!

UPDATE : New dialogue.

So one day, I read a kotaku blog post about a beauty who is my favorite character in Dragon’s Crown and it reminded me of my venture to NYCC 2015.

Ah yes, NYCC 2015. The panels, the comics, the merchandise, the scalpers....

I was fortunate enough to get a ticket this year, and due to my refund check from school, I had a hefty sum in my wallet as well as a hefty intention of doing as much impulsive spending as I possibly could on Play Arts: Kai figures. More specifically, Play Arts Kai: Quiet.

I felt like an Emperor Palpatine conquering the Star Trek universe.

Kneel before Darth Magia, peasants.....KNEEL! Okay now rise....FOOLS, I DID NOT TELL YOU TO SPEAK! *force lightning*

Ah yes, with MGSV being a go to game on Steam for me, and Quiet being a badass bombshell who surprisingly was a good character, there was no way this could have fucked up...Except, the Scalpers found a way to ruin it for me....I booked it to the Play Arts: Kai stand the MOMENT I remembered they had a limited stock. Guess what figure they were sold out of?

Yep......

I asked when they sold out due to sheer curiosity, and maybe I could have ordered one online? Turns out, they sold out Thursday, because people decided to buy these figures in volumes of 4-8 when they realized what a great character Quiet was.

Of course, this got people to BOOK IT to the Square site, as a result they sold SO many quiets and NYCC venom snake variants that they had to cancel the order page FOR Quiet AND said Venom Snake variant.

Of course, people also went to other figure-distribution sites which allow you to be put on a waiting list for the figure.

Now, as for the Scalpers? These sons of whoresons decided to sell them on ebay and amazon!...For 500.00 a piece......

She is not amused with you scalping sons of bitches and you know who you are.

Wasn’t all bad, I got the last Satsuki Kiryuin figure, a limited Dragoon figure, and Play Arts Kai Sakura from Street Fighter IV. . . . .But I didn’t get the figure that mattered.

Update: Varying sites still have Queit as Sold out, but many will enable you to enter a waiting list. Ebay and Amazon scalpers have reduced their prices from 500-600 to 400-500 so, that’s something to tell you about the frequency of scalper sales.
