Oh, it's just dumb, random luck that I even know the guy.
I usually avoid getting into long conversations with people who work the cash registers at stores and shops, but if I hadn't started up an awkward, spontaneous discussion with him a few years ago we wouldn't know one another. He's a pretty good guy...he can't always score the stuff I want, but when he does he's very reasonable about the price. If you lived in my area I'm sure he'd try to set you up with a few things you wanted...he deals in all different sorts of toys. He even has the original MEGO Star Trek dolls from the 1970s, including Uhura and the Klingon. If you like it, there's at least a passing chance he has at least one of it in his shop.
