Transformers shopping rules: 1. Once inside the store, do a quick look-around for anyone you know who doesn't know you "that well". 2. Get in, scan aisle for new stuff, get out. 3. Don't make eye contact with any potential "collectors". 4. Try not to get too excited, especially verbally, when you finally find that Downshift you've been searching for over a month. 5. If a kid and his/her parent are looking through the TF's, just walk away and come back later. 6. If someone asks you why you're an adult buying toys, don't lie to them: Tell them you're a geek with some serious issues. Nothin' wrong with that. 7. If you do run into another collector, don't let them know that you know as much as you do about TF's. Better to pass up a potential friend than have a over-zealous fanboy latch onto you for the next five years. There. Probably harsh, but to the point. Now to go downtown and read aloud from The Book of Tech-specs.
