Incase anybody was wondering who the mystery woman was that won GG’s raffle; it was my fiancé.
In the mist of all the chaos on Thursday with SWS line to no end, Hasbro and SS, we finally worked our way over to GG’s booth. After gawking at all the new busts and taking shots of everything, including the full scale Jabba I finally made my way over to the pre-order line. While online, and me being totally unaware, she went up to the raffle box and put in for two tickets for the both of us. She normally doesn’t bother with these raffles, but will do so if it’s for a good cause such as this one. Speeding up to Sunday evening shortly before 6:00 pm, I’m over at the AFA booth when she calls me…
Her: “Honey, guess who called me!!!”
Her:” Gentle Giant!!”
Me: “huh, why the hell are they calling you for?”
Her: “ I won, I won”
Me: “ Won what, what are you taking about”
I then walk over to GG’s booth, which was the next isle over, and sure enough, there’s her name on the little white board. I then handed over my cell to one of the girls there. Soon after, I then realize that the prize was not only the Elvis bust but also a Blackhole trooper promo bust and a 2004 holiday Sandtrooper bust. The whole thing just blew us away.
CIV was the first celebration for both of us and right up to the final hour was a phenomenal experience. We also attended MR’s private party afterwards were we ran into Ken aka Elvis trooper. Hellava great guy.
On a final note, none of the items are for sale and nor will you see them on eBay.
