The real companion
The Fredmeyer next door has 8 boxes of series 10. For the first time ever I have the complete cmf series, I got carried away trying to find the "girls". Happy to say not a single duplicate:-) For some reason though everytime I come across Medusa I feel like buying that pack.
Is that darker gold on the legs "clumped"?
Having variations in the color of the chrome is actually normal.

I know we have had our issues, but I do like the response ;)
"Well, don't get all mushy on me."
Wishing the best of luck to all you guys out there hunting! Xxxxx
They are replacing the defective one but she has to return it first. (See Margot's post 14 up from yours). When I said I was glad she was keeping him, I was referring to the fact that she was thrilled to have found him, defect and all, and that she and her son were going to keep him and enjoy having him in their collection rather than selling him.
Felt thru less than 2 boxes, felt a top hat, felt good, got home and opened the packet, felt real good!
Number 93 in the UK. 2672/5000
4487 Left to find.
Oh the horror, the horror!
Not sure if it's accurate or not, just came from one of the store employees.
Thank you WHS for not having the cmf box in the open (kept behind counter).
Anyway no. 2629 is mine and will be staying with me in London, UK.
Good luck to all still searching.
Basically I had given up all hope of finding one.
I had got all 16 within the first few days of release.
Since then I have searched various stores - Lego Westfield, TRU (Brent Cross, Hayes and Watford), my local Tesco and Sainsburys, but it was apparent that others also had the same idea.
Today it happened that I needed some lunch, Subway was calling me.
A WHS was in the same retail park (Greenford), I asked to look at the opened case, not many had been removed. Luck was shining on me.
Random in that I did not expect to find it or went particularly to look for it.
As soon as I picked up the packet I knew what was in it, star wars hilt and gem biggest give away.
As a side note, have been told that there is a fella who found (actively looked for) 3 Mr Gs in Uxbridge.
So my plan is that unless I find myself with an unusual amount of time on my hands at the further stores or Store #3 gets them, i'm throwing in the towel.
While I do have interest in him, the major reason I was a gold hunter/dreamer of finding MG for the last month was to pass time until a video game I REALLY want comes out. Now that it's down to 5 days, I just don't have the desire to seek MG anymore. Good luck to those still seeking though.
