It’s taken me a few weeks, but I was finally able to track down a First Edition Transformers Prime Cliffjumper for a decent price! It ended up being the Takara version (which was sadly cheaper than Hasbro's), but at least I was able to snag one.
Last week I was lucky enough to stumble upon a fresh case of the new Transformers Prime: Robots in Disguise. I say lucky because my favorite character, Soundwave, is apparently only one per case and I was able to snag him. Yeah!
I spend a disproportionate amount of my income on Mattel toys. As a result, many of my Rants are aimed at Mattel. I don’t like that. I want to spread it around, so to speak. Last night, Noisy gave me a revelation. I don’t have a lot to rant about on other companies because they’re not doing as good a job tempting me with their product as Mattel does. That, he said, is a rant unto itself...
I know that toy companies sure aren’t perfect, and I don’t expect them to be. But, what I do expect is for them to think and try. So here are a few pointers to help out those companies that are a little confused. If they’ll follow a few of these suggestions, they’re bound to get featured in my column more often than they do now.
