    Well, for about a month now my dad kept telling me that he is putting a "Care Package" together for me. It will consist of various Transformers stuff. Today, I finally got the box he sent me. Now, I was expecting maybe a coloring book or two like before, but no way! What was inside blew me away and showed that my dad truly listens to me and knows EXACTLY what I collect. :D

    Pictured are the following items. Some I have, some I don't. :D 

    Gears and Games Coloring Book
    Allspark Cubes Party Favors
    Transformers the Game Guide Book
    Look and Find Transformers Children's Book
    Two Sets of Magnets
    Two Packs of the 3D Battle Card Game
    One Pack of the Movie Collectors Cards
    Water Reveal Battle Scenes
    One Booster Pack of Attacktix
    Movie Puzzle (Have this one, but it got DESTROYED by the dog. So I was extremely happy to see this in the box.)
    Radio Shack Starscream

    Man oh man! What a great surprise! Not a figure in sight, which just shows me that he really knows that I collect mainly just oddities and nothing else. This blew me away! My dad freaking ROCKS! :rock 

    Oh and he said this in his P.S. at the bottom of the letter he sent me. :D 

    I so need to call my dad now. :lol

    It's nice to see parents that know what their kids like... My dad got me some of the GM ads from the dealership he works at.

    That's pretty cool Alphie, always nice to know that your parents/friends/family know what you like and are willing to support a hobby and what not.

    That's righteous of your father--my parents are pretty cool about the collecting, but I can't remember the last time they got me anything. Think that's mostly 'cause they know I've probably bought it by the time they see it.
    I was about to tell you to give it a few years, but then I saw that you're older than me. That sucks--I hope he doesn't give you a bunch of grief about it.

    Thanks guys! Yeah, my dad is freaking amazing. He can even talk TF, which is awesome. If Botcon is held in Cali next year SEVERAL people will get to meet him since he's going to make the trip to hang out with me.


    Oh and I did open up the Attacktix and two of the pack of cards. All new items! How lucky is that. Heck, one of the Attacktix was a chrome base Megatron vehicle mode. Yay! :rock
