The number of demented devotees was exceeded only by the record-breaking box office receipts. Clad in their officially-endorsed uniforms, the AGOGALIGALEGION surged forward uncontrollably. This could be worse than the time the bottom dropped out of the Pokemon market. Wallace watched warily as the pumps were primed on the water cannon...
