    Did they fix the tight wrists and the weirdly springy ankle tilts that don't wanna tilt?

    Picked up the only Gnaw and Jolt at North Belt Walmart in St. Joseph tonight, so didn’t even need to stop anywhere else.

    Toyman Show in Bridgeton today. Probably won’t make it to this one but I’m interested to hear if there’s anything good.

    Saw the reissue Optimus Primal at Cameron Walmart. Neat but I'm not sure I'm going to be in the market for the Beast Wars reissues.

    I also got the last Jolt at the North Belt Walmart in St. Joseph, but I saw more of the wave at the South Belt store (no Gnaws, though). No Sweeps anywhere nearby yet.

    Yeah great toys, I have four copies or so already. I’m not sure they’re going to move.

    I was dreading this all weekend. The Kingdom grimlock set arrived and i'm not sure if it shows up in the pictures but both the inner and outer box seem to have been used for kickball practice. Big ol' hole right there in the front.

    The best part is how soneone saw the damage, took the inner box out, went to happytown with packing tape and then just thrust it back in and did the same to the outer box. The tape is over the amazon label so I don't think it was the warehouse guys.

    Grimmy's leg is damaged. Not by much but it is a tab...and for as much as I paid for it, dangit, I'm getting a clean copy. Supposed to arrive in a couple days. Sad. IMG_20210926_201543483~2.jpg IMG_20210926_201521505.jpg

    I still remember buying the original Optimus Primal twenty some years ago in the store, it was fun times. But when I picked up this new one it just didn't give me the same feelings. It also didn't help that the new box is a one size fits all so they can use it for both Primal and Megatron, but it just makes it seem too big to even just have as a display piece. Still I like the idea of it and I'm glad Hasbro is going in on these reissues, just I think for now I'm going to pass.

    Ah, 'twas xmas '96 for me. Primal and Megs together. Damn that was a good feeling. Still got both of them 25 years later. Will be strange seeing them in store again.

    It wasn’t personal, I was just having a bad day and I took it out on his package. Sorry.

    I thought I recognized the tear pattern. Dangit, 'Hawk. We talked about this. Use your Inside kickboxing for unresolved personal conflicts. Do I need to call Jean-Claude again?
