Devastated! Meeting Leonard Nimoy And Having The Rain Ruin Everything! RUIN! Fanboy Fail! Autographs! Sadness! And More Star Trek Goodness!

Devastated…. I’m devastated. And I’m not even being fanboy dramatic.

It was like the ran came and washed Mr. Spock away.

I had to write this up fast because I’m freaking out and the best way for me to stop freaking out is to share my pain.

Tonight Mr. Leonard Nimoy was out and about doing a super rare q and a for the 2009 Star Trek. Big Mike and I were also out and I brought my 1974 Mego Mr. Spock action figure still in the package.

Now, I wasn’t alive when these were released but this figure was bought for me by my father one christmas when I was a kid. He bought me the Mr. Spock figure and the Captain Kirk figure and I’ve kept them all this time… In remarkable condition I may add…

My father passed away a long time ago, in like 1999 I believe and these two figures were a great memory for me. Now, when I was back home, I had boxes and boxes to go through and low and behold I found my Star Trek figures. I made sure and took these home.

So, flash back to tonight. Leonard Nimoy was doing the q and a.

There were about 9 people waiting and it really wasn’t bad. It was a nice night, nothing that would ever allude to the disaster that was going to come.

We were waiting and waiting, passing the time talking about life and randomness…

Then Leonard Nimoy’s car pulls in.

He sits in the car for a bit and we honestly don’t have much hope he’s going to come over and sign. He’s “retired” and not out that much. Plus, he charges quite a bit when he is out at the conventions.

Leonard Nimoy finally gets out of his car and comes right on over to us.

He is so nice. He asked us why we weren’t inside. I told him we tried to get tickets and that it sold out weeks ago.

Then we asked Leonard Nimoy if he would mind signing and he came right on over. He signed one each.

And then…

It…

Happened…

Rain.

Rain… It’s frakkin’ Los Angeles… It’s doesn’t rain in Los Angeles? What the frakk? For the one minute that Leonard Nimoy signs for us it rains just enough for the water to sit on the package of my figure.

I looked at it… It’s ruined. RUINED. I don’t even think it can be saved.

I called Scotty on the way home and I told him he needed to talk me off the ledge.

Sigh…

This is a huge fanboy fail…. Sigh…

Guys, I needed to share my pain… Sigh…

Until next time kids…

Mother fucking rain…
