    The other day I was at the local zellers, just to browse, I really didn't have any money. (maybe 2$ max, and I was going to buy some Vitamin Water with that.)
    Anyway, looking through the TF's, I saw a ROTF Leader Prime. Just sitting there. Mistransformed, his box ripped open, out of the twisty ties and everything. Anyway, I ran it to Customer Service, and I was told I could have a 20$ on it. I was overjoyed, until I remembered I had no money. :( 

    Does this crap ever happen to you?

    Oh and I didn't even end up buying any vitamin water.

    I always see that where I work with those HotWheels that come in the black bubble/"blind-pack" dealy. But, I don't have any interest in HWs, and some of those collectors are the biggest bunch of assholes you'll ever find in this hobby.

    next time you have money go to the store, pick up a lc prime and fall on it. walk around a while then return to it (to lower the suspicion, remember the walls have eyes). take it to cs and fufill your destiny.
