Oktober Guard JoeCon Exclusive Stolen

Postby BL4CK5H33P » Mon Jul 02, 2012 5:04 pm

I am postin' this for the victim... Flint @ OG13...

I had promised the 3 3/4 inch set to my friend KushViper. I've known the guy for years, and he's a great guy who came down to the convention hoping that someone would want to trade with him. If anyone knows anything about me, like me, dislikes or whatever, I have no problem trading or outright giving people Joes to further the Community or to just make a die-hard collector happy.
So from what I am hearing is that another "collecter" put his box sets down next to mine and grabbed mine as well and took off.
Let's forget for a minute that there were apparently witnesses to this who didn't say anything, but hey, again, I know I wasn't exactly in a perfect frame of mind either. But what pleases me to no end is that there may be pictures of the incident taking place that are going to be e-mailed to me.

Now, what I am going to do with those pictures I'll keep to myself. But for example, let's say this thief runs a Gi Joe website that, I dunno, buys and sell convention exclusives, I might posts those pictures there, and on every other forum site I am a member of (and if I am not a member, I am sure that I've done enough for people over the years that they will be happy to do it for me).

So I want the set returned to me by the end of the week. I should have the pictures by then anyway - so Saturday could be an interesting day.

Let's see how this game plays out.

So when I tell you that someone stole the Oktober Guard Box set as we were paying for our other purchases, it's not that I am out the set. It's that this son of a b***h stole a set that was promised to someone else...KushViper.

And for the record, if any of you people buy an Oktober Guard set, ask to see the Certificate of Authenticity. I would suspect that if you buy it from a "reputable" dealer it will certainly be included. If not, drop me a PM on http://www.og13.com.

ALSO THIS: I will pay $100.00 for each original photo of the a**hole seen stealing my stuff. I already know I have at least two on the way as of this afternoon. $500.00 upper limit - so three more pictures please.

im sorry to hear that sort of thing happened, i hope you make some headway in recovering you items. it's always disconcerting to hear things like this, being a collector can often times be a difficult hobby already with all the price hikes and exclusivity on many things with out having to worry about other people doing the worng thing and stealing from you....

Did you ever reach a resolution to this? I remember reading about it over on OG13 as well. What a scumbag!
