This. Not gloating, sorry to anyone who got shut out tonight - but there was a decent delay between going up and tweet, which helped quite a bit since I could truly sit and F5 and didn't have to at least look like I was doing work.

On the Bridesmaid drop I had it eyed and everything. Got stuck on shipping calculation and the redirected to mondo's mobile site. Never seen that before. Still missed out after all of that. Hoping to get a print for my wife.

Edit to add I didnt get any tweets after the Rango second offering.... Oh well

NEVER PAY VIA PAYPAL GIFT. NEVER PAY FRIENDS/FAMILY. PAY THE FEES YOURSELF, THE 3% IS WORTH IT TO NOT BE SCAMMED

Wow - that might have been the most brutal Mondo drop I've ever tried for. I was manually refreshing, saw Hugo, opened it up... cliked add to cart and it just timed out. I tried on two windows and just nothing. Mondo was "offline" for me for a good two minutes - so bizarre.

Oh well -- just wish I wasnt sitting around for the last 30 minutes. Usually if I get in quickly I can at least get to my cart!

wow, I can't believe I finally got through on any Mondo release.
Managed to get a Rango and Hugo Varient.

Only 4th time trying to get stuff through Mondo, but 3 other times I struck out big time.

So happy with the outcome tonight.

I have to admit, this "tv event"-centric drop was kind of fun. I wonder what other things they could do themed drops for. :)

I have read and re-read that post a few times, and it makes me laugh, because I have no idea what the hell is going on there, yet I can just imagine someone who was playing the old Scorcese drinking game time, just hammered and typing away!!

YAY!!!
All in all, a great night- I got Bullhead and Hugo regular.
I was worried that I wasn't going to get the Hugo because it hung up while processing shipping, but thank goodness for it being a run of 295. I would've been happy with either- so I'm glad I went with the one I had a better chance at.


Thanks for being entertaining Justin on twitter and making my heart skip a beat everytime I saw a tweet from you.

How the heck did you do it? I couldn't get through for anything....
Got in well before the Tweet, got to the final step with the variant and hit the mother of all lag.
