    this isn't news, just wanted to tell a story:



    So Elrod over at TFans, a buddy of mine, told me he was in his KB (in Texas, mind you), and that the shelves were lined with 08 BBs... so I told him I really don't like to shop there, because they gouge you like 20%. I'm not paying 13-14 bucks for a Deluxe.

    Then I thought...


    How many times have I made trips looking for him? (and others)

    How much gas have I wasted?

    Fargit, I go to Franklin Mills Mall. Now, I haven't been to KB in awhile, as you know.. The mall is shaped kind of like a W, and I walked in at the point in the middle, and went down the wrong side....20 minutes before closing. I really wanted an 08 BB, and granted them being in TX does not guarantee them in PA, but I had to try :) 

    So I ran the distance of the mall, to get there in the last few minutes...all out of breath and out of shape. only to find...they weren't in the toy aisle at all!!

    Turns out they had a special spot near the front of the store...filled with Cyber Slammers and Protoform Starscreams...


    :( 

    ...and one FAB Frenzy. :drunk  The only FAB I wanted...

    Grabbed it and (walked) off...

    Well, whatever way this 30 year old can get his exercise, I don't know why I wanted it so bad...maybe just the thrill of the hunt?

    Anyway, the toy is pretty kickass!! Go get it.

    I don't think there's a Bee in the entire state of Pennsylvania.

    I can't wait until I move out of here...

    Hey Im in Houston... Could you ask your friend if Franklin Mills Mall is the same as Katy Mills Mall? (I doubt it but worth asking.)

    Ah, yes - Pennsylvania is truly a barren Transformer-less wasteland.

    No, I'm not going mad. Honest.

    The thrill of the hunt is a huge part of it anymore for me. I like finding new things even if I am not going to buy them.

    Now I'm curious to head by a KB this weekend.

    My KB actually has the latest wave of Deluxes. Had 'em all when I went yesterday, too. I just bought Bumblebee for now. I was too excited to even care about the 20% markup.

    Ahh $15 for a Deluxe - I'd pay that! Over here it's more like $26 (£12.99)!

    I like Frenzy. He seems like the most complicated FAB to me too.
