    I don't know why this happened, but there were these two figures sitting quietly on the pegs. When all of a sudden, they jumped into the shopping cart and came home with me today.
    I wasn't thinking about them, I wasn't planning on collecting them again, it just happened automatically.

    I guess I'll be trying to collect the rest of the CHUG series now. :) 

    Has this happened to you? Unsuspected victim of toy's jumping into your shopping cart without your permission?

    I had 4 Hero Factory sets magically float into my arms at TRU the other night. And back in 2007, Movie 1 Leader Brawl somehow convinced me that he was a living space necessity, which actually kick started my collecting.

    Cursed. Don't worry, you have no faults in this accident!

    I know how it is. Somehow transformers, without my permission, just comes home with me. I tried to tell them no but... they keep coming!

    Happens to me and my fiancee all the friggin' time.

    We'll just be walking through Target, doing our usual shopping, and suddenly at the register, one or two TFs will be with our purchases.

    Sometimes figures rob my wallet and hack my online account and rob me blind. Sometimes they don't even exist when the police look for them. The police tell me there are third parties involved called "preorders"

    Lucky swine, Wheeljack isn't even coming out over here.

    Actually, this happened on Friday. Went to get HFTD Highbrow. Came home with PCC Huffer, too. No idea how. Then Top Spin climbed in to my arms while I wasn't looking. Crankcase tried to get in but I was wise to it by then.

    Because he rules.


    I was walking through Target today with the family. Unpacking the bags this afternoon and there was a Generations Warpath in the bags. Wife said "Didn't know if you had it but, it looked cool."

    I LOVE my Wife!! Yes I have one but, I love that she thinks of me.

    DOTM Thundercracker actually did fall off the shelf and hit my arm when I was browsing figures at Target. Does that count?

    Some of the biggest offenders to me have been by the organization they called "BBTS". For some reason tons of tons of transformers jammed their way without my permission, charged my bank, and entered my PoL. Before I knew it, they invaded my house and stole my real estate by standing on it. Real evil I tell ya. Within matters of months, entire shelves! Taken!

    They're forcing me to make a trip to Denver and visit the new Ikea store. After month's of saving money which is impossible when the same damn bastards force me to buy them from this source and that source.


    Man, I need to start playing the lottery again and hope to win big! LOL!

    I went into a Toys R' Us last week. Was just going to buy maybe one or two deluxes.

    I walked out of that store with just about one of every cyberverse figure thats been released that they had on the shelves, and my wallet went from obese to anorexic in a time slot of about five minutes.

    You're lucky. It could have been Chef Boyardee that followed you home.

    Yep, you chugged something alright!

    Completely
    Horrid and dumb
    Usage of an acronym for
    Generations or any other TF toy

    I can see why that would be confusing :/
