    I bought 2 to keep, I'm using them, and the Cinemark light up head, for accessory storage.

    Same but I got one for popcorn and the other for my son to use for accessory storage - it holds a lot and much better than just laying on a shelf. I also ordered the Cinemark one online which showed up yesterday. I really like the OP head, but the AMC truck is the clear winner of the popcorn bucket challenge!

    Got one for my son while watching IMAX. Wasn’t expecting but seems plenty available on Sunday. Came with separate large drink and large popcorn so win win. Movie is great!

    This silver straw (chrome smoke stacks) set is nice. And you get for straight straws and four angled straws. I have two more sets coming. this set would’ve benefited from being a tad wider. I will find the best.

    these just came in. They are a little bit longer and a little bit thicker. It’s a extremely tight fit but they do fit. That’s nice because then the straws do not wiggle around at all. It also highlights that the smokestacks are straws.

    edit for @ckhtiger’s question below:
    It is a super tight fit… I did not push the bottom of the straw in out of fear that it “might” crack. Most likely would not but did not want them to get stuck there either. I think I could push them all the way in if I really wanted to. If you really want me to try it let me know.

    I am not worried about the paint chipping but again it is an EXTREMELY tight fit:

    Gotcha, I was confused how you “lost” $70. The theatre closest to me is AMC, so I was fortunate to get it with popcorn and drink. My son loves it for rolling accessory storage!

    I just found one of these on Facebook Marketplace for $10!

    1000021677.png

    Cost me about another $6 in fuel and tolls, but still a bargain. Needs a cleaning, then I'll start to look at how to separate the trailer.

    EDIT: done and done.

    1000021690.jpg 1000021689.jpg 1000021687.jpg

    If I finished things I started, I would move the trailer hitch forward so it sits between the 2 rear axles, and cover the exposed hollow space behind the cab.

    I just cut the blue frame at its thinnest point, which leaves a nice tail for the cab section.

    1000021691.jpg

    I also extended the forward screw post to serve as a hitch post, and glued a spacer onto it to give the bottom of the trailer some clearance to turn.

    (Long post for a gimmick toy, I realize.)

    Just putting this out there, I have 4 extra,unused straws if anyone needs them. Would just ask for the unfortunate cost of shipping, but better than not having them at all if you're a completionist like me ;)
