Day 7: TOYS!
or "YouTube clips and a lot of rambling"
Is it just me or does the blurring of their faces make it really creepy?
I know I had some, if not all, of the Constructicons.
I know I had some of the Insecticons too. Well, I know I had Bombshell for sure.
My two biggest Transformer scores when begging for toys were Jetfire and Shockwave. I think Jetfire was $29.99 or something which might as well have been a million dollars when I was a kid. Thanks Mom!!!
Like G.I. Joe: The Movie, Transformers: The Movie left me kind of bummed out when I was a kid. Playing with toys was becoming passé. Soon it was all about rescuing Princess Peach from Bowser and running around Hyrule killing Octoroks.
One of the cool things about M.U.S.C.L.E. was that they sold multi-pack trashcans in opaque packaging. A picture of the "trash can" multi-pack can be seen here. Like Mystery Minis today, you never knew what figures you were going to get.
