    Something very odd happened to me today. Last night?

    Anyway, I had a dream where I was at Wal-Mart with my father (who had passed away Sunday). I was specifically looking for MP Skywarp, and planned to buy it as a birthday gift, and then stash it away until my birthday (with the fear that I would never find one in stores a month from now). I found the last one hidden away, and my father bought it for me.

    I woke up. Proceed to "FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU-"

    Now, I convinced my mom to bring my brothers and I to Wal-Mart, again looking for MP Skywarp, but IRL this time. I casually walked to the TF aisle, not expecting to find him. I didn't see any at first glance, but dug a little deeper through the exclusive Ultras and Blowpipe boxsets. Lo and behold, I found the last one. I brought it to my mom and explained to her my story. She gave her own motherly "Cool Story, Son" and bought it for me, as a birthday gift.

    I was glad to get him, but I found the circumstances extraordinarily odd. I'm sure 98% of you guys are convinced I'm bullshittin' you, but I really have no reason to lie. Pics anyway, if it helps.

    still, nice to know you have it. i think a lot of people on these boards are startin to get a little anxious that they won't ever see him in stores....especially with all the stories of wal-marts poor stocking consistency and people buying carts of them at a time...

    and with the whole non-replenishable thing too. makes me wonder if i should have bought more than 2...

    I really don't think you can even sell it at this point. You could give up the hobby and sell off your entire collection down the road, but this particular toy is connected to a loved one.
