What an asshole that guy is. Could you maybe leave a few for others? For fuck's sake.


Every store that got them got at least 8 - so he left at least 5 for other people. Some stores even got 12, so he potentially left 9.

Yeah I'm really wondering who are all these people in this thread that would go to the store, see 4 Little Macs on the peg , take only one and then think to themselves " there, I'll leave the rest of these here so that some other collectors can buy them." haha, right pal.

 

And honestly, when it comes down to it the guy at my store only bought 4 when he could have bought 7. He didn't wipe out the store.

Wow... flippers are buying them up. You'd think BBY would figure this out by now but guess. 

 

I'm surprised that other stores aren't getting any in. 

They didn't seem phased by it - just kept expressing how lucky I was that I had gotten in touch with the manager last night.

And does the box have a copyright of 2014 or 2015?  Let me guess, 2014?

It's 2014, but I'd be willing to bet this restock was not a reprint. It was literally just stock being held up by the dock strike. This particular store never received Little Mac to begin with, so I'm guessing this was the shipment they expected all the way back in December.

I spoke too soon. I got a follow up email from the manager of the Cary, NC Best Buy saying they just got a shipment of 8 Little Macs. I just went over there and picked up my free Little Mac, so they did definitely come in.

 

Just FYI, they're totally sold out now. Someone was buying four as I got there and three other people grabbed the remaining three. I'm lucky I emailed the manager yesterday to remind him about my canceled preorder.
