    I stumbled upon a craigslist posting that reads thusly:

    I've no plans to contact the poster, of course. It's foolish to try making deals with a kindergartner. So it's more out of curiosity that I'm bringing it up here. I can decipher all but one name -- what the hell is a "biastert"?

    My guess? It's a collector who wants people to think he's a kid so they'll either (A.) give him stuff or (B.) cut him a really sweet deal. I just don't see an actual six year old--who just barely learned how to read let alone type--getting on craiglist AND actually knowing enough about Transformers names from 20-odd years ago.

    By the way, I do think it's Blaster, though if you pronounce what he spelled, it's "bastard."

    Seconded. That, or it's a pretty smart 6-year-old who's parents are big G1 fans. Maybe he's been trolling around on the Wiki, catching up on G1 in between his college classes.
