    Our polar pals have finally found a home!!!

    www.omgcnfo.com has announced that they are the mystery carrier of the highly anticipated penguin 2-pack. The penguins are going to debut at San Diego Comic Con, and any left over will be sold at their website. They are in very limeted supply. So, pick one up!

    You can actually pick them up now. They changed the original plan and will allow a few pre-orders before Comic-Con.

    Wow. And three types of Uncle Deadly too.

    I had no idea Uncle Deadly's trousers had holes in their knees. Now I know.

    AND OH MY GOSH! HE has a TAIL!

    My they sold out quick, I fear I missed out on that.

    But what on earth is the point of having an on-line exclusive if you are going to sell all the stock at a convention? I mean, why don't they call it a convention exclusive and leave it at that.

    Well, maybe a little late but a Pre-sell is where they charge you right away so that they know that people are commited to getting the item and they know that they have the items sold. A Pre-order doesn't get charged until they ship the item.

    Originally it was announced as a Con exclusive. They also stated that the rest of the :zany: would be sold on the website after San Diego. But enough people moaned and groaned over on the Palisades forums that Oh My God proved once again how cool they are and changed to Pre-selling a select few.

    Got them this time - took me about 15 goes to pay properly though! (if I end up with 30 penguins I don't know what I'll do!)

    Big thanks for pointing this out theprawncracker - I had all but given up hope...

    I'm very glad OMGCNFO stocked them after all - but I still think that it is a bit odd that when they are earmarked for a convention, you would have thought that they would just have sold the last few on the Palisades site.

    With all that excitement I hope they realise they all realise how foolish it would be not to stock the monkey...

    I've been in contact with OMG about the penguins and UD, and in my latest e-mail I asked them about their situation with Sal. Hopefully they'll reply soon...:D

    Oh and Harvey, if you end up with 30 penguins I'd be happy to just take a few off you...;) :smirk:

    Hey guys I'm back!

    I talked to OMG about Sal via e-mail and asked them this:

    And they told me:

    Then I asked:

    They replyed:

    And once more I asked:

    And they replyed:

    So that's the standings of OMG and Sal so take it as you will...:smirk: :sympathy: :attitude:

    I never have got a change to order the penguins! Anybody have an idea where I might be able to get them now? OMG is currently closed out of them! :zany:

    Oh, (BADWORD.) I really wanted the penguins, too. I love the bit in MWoO where they all faint upon Kermit's head being ripped off.

    Hey That Announcer and mikealan, OMG is still going to sell the left over penguins from SDCC on their website. So I'd be stalking omgcnfo.com the day after the show to see when the penguins pop up for sale.:D

    So what day will be the day after the show? And how much are the penguins?

    theprawncracker Well-Known Member

    July 18th is the day after the Con, but I just realized it's a five day con, so gettin penguins might be pretty tough...:sympathy: The penguins were sold for 10.25 on OMG.

    Oh my, a 5 day convention? I doubt we will see the penguins again.
