Hello old friend, it's good to see you, too!

Hey I don't bust out the old Care Bears lyrics for just anybody

The triumphant return of Mr. Duck Zoid!!!!

So was this from Toys 'n Joys??

No, I gave up on Toys N Joys after the second time they sent me the wrong thing. I decided to keep the Helic Memorial '83-'84 box they sent me and stop dealing with them.

I went to eBay where I found a seller that had a Helic Memorial '83 set with a BIN of $59.99. I took a day pondering whether or not to get it, and in that time some other guy bought it! That's when I knew I wanted one badly.

Then the same seller put up another Helic '83 set for 5 bucks more and I jumped on it. I figure the 5 extra dollars was dumbass tax I had to pay for not buying the first one when I could have.

Cool beans, EKM! I'm glad to hear you landed the set. I vaguely remember having at least one Zoid as a kid.

I was more into Robotix. I've had many urges to replace the Robotix toy set I had as a kid.

On a somewhat totally irrelevant note, I wish I could find a Takara Blaster reissue with a good Ebay BIN price. I've been scalped twice in the last two weeks now, by a dollar each time.

Ugghhh...the pain a toy robot addiction can have.

In my last comment, I meant sniped, NOT scalped.

The sound of that little wind-up motor takes me back.
