979 He Lies!


How many people expected that shit? NOBODY, THAT’S WHO! Carol least of all. XD He’s a loose cannon, I tells you!

The site seems to be sorted out mostly again, except that array thing appeared and it won’t go away again. Anyway, let me know if you have problems so I can look in to them.

I guess I have to commit myself to the idea of getting this new set of blind bag ponies. I’m dissapointed that they are only sparkley and metallic though. It makes them seem less real to me. Which is an insane thing to say, but I think most of you can understand what I mean. That said, I doo like looking at the clear sparkley ones in sunlight. Especially the green and blue ones. I’ve always liked stuff like that. I even have little bits of wrapping paper that I’ve saved so I can look at them from time to time. Am I alone in this? The new Turtles figures are nicely colored too. Each one has his own pallette, as is common with the cartoon style toys. The new version is especially good. The colors are saturated, but matte finish for the most part. It makes them look like they are made of Play-Doh. And some parts are a little squishy, so I like that. Even the plastic of their weapons is unique, although they are still either a shade of brown or a shade of gray. the color choices suit each turtle. It’s very well planned, I think. Anyway, hopefully the new Bb ponies will last long enough for me to get a complete set. I’m not married to the idea, but I do like having sets of things. For no good reason…

I am slowly coming to terms with the fact that I will probably never get another Masterpiece Transformer figure again. Which is a shame because I really wanted Soundwave, but it’s getting to be a real either or kind of deal anymore. With the economy not picking up, and people unsure about the upcoming election, things are just too expensive for me now. Even the small stuff is going insane. The Avengers guys are about $11 per now. No way are they worth that. Those are $5 toys MAX. Star Wars guys are about the same way. Transformers too. I actually really like Transformers Prime, but the guys are just too much anymore. They’ve more than doubled around here. I don’t know what it’s like everyplace else. It must be similar throughout chain stores though. The tiny Transformers are about $7. That’s just insane. I understand the why of it all, but man. Games are holding steady for the most part, which is good because I actually do things with them for longer, so they’re a better deal. XD In fact there have been some good values to be had here and there. I guess it all just moves in cycles. It’ll all sort itself out before too long. It’d bee cool if it would get on with it though.
