But seriously. Some people bitched about the accurate leaks from punch, others appreciated it. Some bitched about the scheduled drops vs surprises, most seemed to like not wasting their time sitting in an area to buy a poster they might not even give a fudge about, etc.

So yeah, same fudge, different day, really. Just take a month worth of drop drama and compress it to 4 days.
When stressed about getting a drop, just remember: it will decay into the same organic matter as inevitably as your rotting corpse no matter how much museum glass you put in front of it.

Breathe deep and chill. It's just ink and paper.

I literally cannot believe the stupid "leak" of information is still being discussed. Who gives a fudge?

From what I heard having the pre-sale was the best thing ever because it did just that, allow you to not have to hang out waiting for something to drop and miss out on everything else. Adding to that, the way the pre-sale was done was top notch as well. Requiring ID to pick up your print, forced a 1 per person purchase and cut out the whole online PBing thing. First time I can honestly say that Mondo made a great decision and executed it nicely.

We moved past caring about leaks and onto caring about opinions of leaks.

Yes, it's as sad as it looks.

So...timetable on SDCC leftovers drop? Maybe next week? Can't be this week, that'd be so soon...

Also, Edmiston show! Looks great so far, I know it's on another thread but it's still Mondo...

And from the sounds of it Mondo did it right this year with their scheduled drops and preorders. Reading through the SDCC thread where people were trying to get a t-shirt and getting screwed over because of line jumpers or wrong drop times sounds frustrating as all hell.

I enjoyed SDCC way more this year then last. If the leaks were or weren't supposed to happen I don't care! It made my con more enjoyable.

Yeah, as a non-attendee I also appreciate the Moss regs and vinyl coming to us online. Seems like everything went alright outside of people on here having an opinion about leaks.
