It's like having your very own ROBOT TIME MACHINE


I didn't want to go on vacation without putting up more ads from Cincinnati before I left. So over at the Vintage Space Toaster Palace there are at least a dozen new ads in the Transformers 1984 section and four new Kronoform ones. You can do a CTRL+F search for "Cincinnati" and the new ones will pop up. I got some nice new Transformers stuff like an ad for the minicars with a picture of Gears and an ad with some nice Megatron lineart, but I also got better pictures of a number of ads I'd already come across before. Now there's better shots of the Decepticon cassettes ad and the Shockwave ad that Gold Circle ran on December 16th, which is one of my personal favorites. I was happy that the Kronoform ads weren't all about the robot watch, which are so common that I've started skipping them whenever I see them. There's new ads featuring the Protectron, Attakon, Invaceptron, Modulator and of course everybody's favorite-the Multiforce 14. Still all those combined don't outnumber the ads I've found for that darn robot watch. If I put up every Kronoform robot watch ad I saw I'd have to change the name to the Vintage Toaster Watch Palace.

Those prices are making me cry. How in the hell could I not afford $2.50 for a Bumblebee?!

Oh right, I had no damn money as a kid. Crap.

Yeah, it really kills me, too. I totally forgot what it was like to be a little kid until I was hanging out with some of my little 8 year old nieces and nephews. The way they begged and groveled at my feet at Wal-Mart for things that cost only a few dollars was embarrassing to watch. I felt bad for them.

It sucks because the lowest priced Transformers I'm seeing in the Animated line are around $9 now. The basic price of admission into toy robot world for the kids these days is so high that I'll bet a lot of humiliating behavior is going to go unrewarded, which is sad. Yeah, occasionally my dad would say no when I embarrassed myself at the store begging for new He-Mans or whatever, but it paid off a lot more often than not.
