    I present a multi path adventure in the same vein as @tikgnat ;) 

    You live in a seaside town they forgot to close down.
    After reading on TFW2005 that the latest wave of transformers has been released, and checking in the sightings thread that the newest goodies have been spotted in your county, you think about heading into town to see if you can find anything...

    If you head into town click here The quest for transformers.

    You decide not to bother. You know you won't find any, and it looks like rain. You try to order from Kapow. They have sold out. So have ID toys and TFS Express.

    You should have put a preorder in....

    The end.

    You decide to head into town.
    You start the car, but notice the fuel gauge is low. You drive past Asda and notice unleaded is a penny cheaper than Morrison's.
    Do you get petrol now or on the way back?

    Play it safe and fuel up now click here The quest for transformers.

    Drive on click here The quest for transformers.

    You pull into Asda (part of the Walmart family) and remember petrol pumps have that crappy one way system designed to send you back out afterwards. You pull into the car park and think you may as well have a hunt while you are here.
    You go down the sorry excuse of a toy section.
    The only transformer they have is a warrior windblade which has been sitting there for six months. You look for the Hot Wheels. The shelf ticket says they are three for £3. You like this bargain, unfortunately they are out of stock.
    You leave empty handed, but at least you can fuel up and be on your way.

    Whilst stopped at the traffic light waiting for a Coffin Dodger to cross, you notice a poster on a bus stop for Resident evil.
    You have no idea whether this is for a film or a video game in the series.
    You now feel as old as the Coffin Dodger....

    You barely find a parking space. You won't have time to look every where today, so you just go to wilko.
    They have no Transformers at all.
    You go home empty handed.
    When you check the sightings thread it is reported the sainsburys you passed up on "had" the latest wave, but they have all been snapped up.
    You decide to play with the Transformers you already have.

    The end.

    You give the cookie monster £1.
    After looking through the usual tat, you notice they have some Hot Wheels in. They have been mixed up with Matchbox. This sets your mild OCD off. As you are separating them you see some Spectra flame paint. Could this be a super treasure hunt? The real rider tyres would suggest so, and yes! On the card behind the vehicle is the gold flame logo!
    Triumphantly you take your prize to the tills, only to find the card readers are out of order. Cash only please.
    That's ok, you've got a pound coin in your wallet so....
    Oh, crap. You gave your last pound to the cookie monster!
    Hiding the Hot Wheels in a safe place, you run outside to the nearest ATM.
    After withdrawing a tenner, you go back to claim what is rightfully yours, but what's this. It's gone!
    A small boy has it and is heading to the checkout.

    Do you let it go click here The quest for transformers.

    Do you try and get it back click here The quest for transformers.

    You let the young lad have it. You smile as he hands his pocket money over to the cashier.
    "Thank you lady" he says. He then walks over to his mum. "This is the best day ever mum!"

    Seeing how much joy a toy car has bought to a child leaves you with a warm glow inside.
    You may not have any new toys yourself, but you feel good on your way home.

    No way are you going to let some snot nosed kid take your prize from you!
    "Hey kid, don't you want this one instead?"
    "No thanks."
    As he heads for the tills you rugby tackle him.
    He screams in shock.
    A silence falls.
    All eyes are on you.
    The police are called.
    After four hours you are released with a caution.

    You go home to assess your life, wondering how it came to this.

    The end

    You wait 30 minutes before someone else gives any money. You enter the shop cold and miserable. What a skinflint you are. Well, nothing in here, time to go home.
    You start sneezing.
    Next week you develop a stinking cold.
    All to save one pound.

    You forget the whole thing and go home. It's raining again.
    When you get in you put the telly on, only to find out on the local news that Ashens, yes THE Ashens was spotted in the poundland you were outside!
    It turns out that while he was finding tat to review for his YouTube channel, a group of fans recognised him, leading to an impromptu Q&A session and autograph signing.

    Sigh. You spend the rest of the day browsing eBay.

    You decide to head to Sainsburys.
    Their toy section is slowly being annexed by the stationary, but hey they might have something.
    Lo and behold! The latest wave!!!!
    You can't believe your luck.
    You can't believe what else your seeing.
    Someone has just sweept the whole lot into their basket!!!
    They are now heading to the self service checkout to avoid any disaproving states from the cashier.
    Suddenly you realise it's a scalper!

    Do you confront the scalper? The quest for transformers.

    Do you not confront the scalper? The quest for transformers.

    You approach the scalper. You didn't notice he was over six feet tall.
    "Um, excuse me, but I wanted to buy some of those too." You say.
    "Well you can buy them on my eBay later." The scalper grins.

    You don't want to start anything, so you just leave.
    When you get home you start ranting about scalpers on TFW2005.

    Your followers put you on ignore.

    You tell the scalper that it's not on.
    Swear words are exchanged.
    Punches are thrown.
    The security guards arrive.
    Both you and the scalper are banned from sainsburys for six months.

    That's... a rather depressing story. You either walk away with nothing or you go to court.

    :lol  it's only a slight exaggeration of my actual transformer hunts. I've never been in trouble with the law though ;)
