He has stuff to sell. Now the whole fandom knows where to find him. Dollars to donuts, he will be "persuaded" to part with the figures when they are no longer on the market and he can set his scalping price high enough.

It's rather sad to see an adult who has lost such a sense of perspective that they would spend serious cash for such a reason.

But yes, it does remind me of the people who wanted to burn some recent books, until it was pointed out that they had to buy the books first, which meant that the authors collected the royalties.
My cousin's memoir of love and loneliness while raising a child with multiple disabilities will be out on Amazon soon! Know the Night, by Maria Mutch, has been called "full of hope, light, and companionship for surviving the small hours of the night."

(bolding mine)  :o  Burn books??!!  Do people actually still do that?  I'm saddened to hear that.

Honestly I would minimize my contact with this person, IMHO it sounds like there's something wrong with him.
Always be polite, even to nasty people. Not because they are nice, but because you are.

He sounds like a ninny and the best thing to do is roll your eyes and avoid him.
If wisdom’s ways you wisely seek,
Five things observe with care,
To whom you speak,
Of whom you speak,
And how, and when, and where.
