PCL: Eyewitness to Blind Buying

http://coolandcollected.com/
 
Anyone who has seen my illustration posts or heard me on the Geek Fallout podcast knows that I don't do anything without a plan. So while its not for me, I was an eyewitness to blind buying this past week.
 
While out shopping with my neighbor Asia (she's the kind of person who should be post for the League as she fits more with the toy collector crowd) She was squeezing the Star Wars figure bags looking for a Boba Fett. "This one's a BB-8!" she declared matter-of-factly. I suppose the unique shape would give it away. She ended up getting a Darth Vader.
 



She did the same thing with the Disney Princess bags. She left with Tiana, Merida and Cinderella. She arranged them on my dashboard and had them sing Skyler sister songs from "Hamilton" the whole way home. She seemed satisfied.

  1. My wife uses the squeeze method on Lego mini-figures for me. While the base plate and body are obviously the same, she can somehow tell who it is by the hair and accessories...

    I have had almost no success with the LEGO Minifig fondling method.
