    So i was at Target and was pleased to finally see Universe Galvatron, and Animated Swoop; I also picked up Activators Bumblebee. I could tell the cashier was nerd, so I went to him so that I wouldn't get any funny looks and I was right.

    So hes checking them and says, "Oh, you got Swoop and what else?" He picks up Galvatron and says, "Wow! I've never seen this," he spent a good 30 seconds reading the bio while I stood there thinking, Let's go so I can go home and open the damn toy. He was done and says, "I'm kicking myself now because I had all of the original Transformers back in the day. I even had this Unicron that had cloth wings and its worth about 500 dollars now." I said, "Cool" when I knew that was bs.

    There is no Unicron with cloth wings thats worth 500 bucks today is there?

    Nah, there was a Unicron with cloth wings from back in the day. I know for sure it was real, because a friend of mine who's dad worked for Hasbro had it.

    Oh you guys wouldn't know who he was, he doesn't live around here.

    For real.

    Heh. It's like people sometimes need to lie to make themself sound interesting to talk to you. I had a guy in a local comic shop start chewing my ear off about TF's and talked all about this lost Marvel comic story and I said "How do you know?" and he said "Because I work for them!". He uh...doesn't work for Marvel.

    My cousin had one of three prototypes for the hoverboards from BttF2, they were real!



    (I actually heard this basic story when I was a kid. For real.)

    Don't remember anyone giving me fantastical stories of TF knowledge, nothing beyond basic ignorance anyway.

    I did have a cousin who swore that Mezmeron (the ghosts' boss from the Hanna-Barbera Pac-Man cartoon) made an appearance in the original Pac-Man video game if you played far enough and 'won', however.

    "I have a Playstation 6. My Dad totally works for Playstation, isn't that awesome?"
    I actually heard that when I was a kid. The PS2 hadn't even come out yet.

    Man I hate it when ppl try to talk like experts on a subject you know 1000000 times more than them. They should make an idiot stick your allowed to carry around and just pop them with it until they shut up.
