So after all the hype and spending a fantastic 14hours queuing for my MF I now have a question to put to anyone who cares to comment.
While we queued we were handed a "business card" that stated a number out of 150 which was to let us know our position in the queue. We assumed the first 100 would then get the corresponding VIP cards and then in turn purchase the set that effectively was also the corresponding number sold. So I had businesses card #17 meaning I would get #17 VIP card followed by purchasing the 17th set to be sold.
However what actually happened was as we entered the store by our queue position we headed upstairs to one of the tills to receive our VIP card which had been randomly mixed up behind the tills. To highlight this I stood at one till as LegoBoy stood at the one beside me. I received VIP card #5 while he received #88. We then joined others collecting scratch cards and collected our prize from that. We then headed downstairs to either join one queue to collect an unsigned box or the other queue to collect a set and have it signed.
By the time we got to have our set signed it was impossible to tell how many physical sets had already been given out.
So the question is if you had your set signed and numbered would you of gone with either the original queue position card or the VIP card number??
