This Li'l Tepig... ALL the Way Home!

First, I forgot to mention, I found a new 'zine on the Barnes & Noble racks last Friday, something from Blast! featuring B&W artwork, a bit of info about Pokemon and the games, additional info on 3DS games and also games for other platforms.  The 'zine (pictured) is $6.99 and since it's mostly artwork, is a great source for pin-ups after you're done reading.  The 'zine does have a lot of screenshots from various games, but is more visual than text, although I really enjoyed some of the pictures citing the history of Pokemon.  Still, LOL, nothing can match the old Pojo 'zine with the foil embossed covers and extensive price lists.  Say, Pojo-?!


 
And now... Pojo knows well the ordeals I have endured over the last week and a half pursuing what shall now be dubbed Greased Lightning.  Multiple visits to TRU ($4/gal. gas--might I mention I pumped over $100 in the last 2 weeks, but to be fair, that incls. work and errands), multiple calls to TRU, loads of misinformation and delays... Anyhow... not all TRU's have the "Pokemon Feature Shop" up yet.  And not all TRU's even have B&W merch. out.  Some are holding in the stockroom for heavens know what reasons (several employees told me this--but at latest, they were saying it should've been out today!).  I can tell you that the Jakks stuff has to be street date most definitely as of April 24 if not earlier (look at all the pix online, too, when people found stuff on April 15, incl. me) due to the corporate "sale" sign (price reduction) on several Jakks B&W items noting April 24 as the start date.  I owe a HUGE thank you to one customer service oriented TRU employee that assisted me due to the fact that the Feature Shop, which a "manager" told me would be up by today (April 27--the start of the Egg download in TRU's electronics dept.), was delayed in setting yet again.  I paid for my little Tepig and thanked the employees that had mercy on me after all the effort I went through to secure the little guy.  He's $6.99 and I also purchased a figure, $5.99, at TRU.  The Feature Shops that are up have a scant amount of goodies due to slow delivery.  I spotted figures, plush, trading cards, DVDs (incl. Arceus movie and TV eps. collections), books, t-shirts, games, etc.  The figures include Pikachu, the B&W starters, Zorua, Zoroark, Munna, Zekrom, Reshiram--but the singles are going really fast; the 4-figure tubes are a little easier to find.  Two dragon themed t-shirts are available in youth sizes, one in red, one in grey, both $12.99 ea.  Hopefully, a pre-weekend restock may help the displays.  Considering how much shelf space TRU has allocated to the endeavor, it's a pity that shipments have been slow/delayed; I know everyone is eagerly awaiting the swag!


 
I never thought the little piggy would capture my heart--I'm somewhat fascinated by snakes (Snivy!), just mebbe not the one in Harry Potter!  Anyhow, looks like my Fast Ball finally succeeded and Greased Lightning will now have to find a good spot among my other Pokemon plushies where he'll be cherished and loved like all the rest.  A good end to a rather traumatic pursuit!  LOL!
