    The 30 year old virgin?

    I go to the store today with the wife so we can buy some toys for a local charity for kids. I walk into the area where the transformers are and as I'm trying to decide what transformer a kid would like, this guy proceeds to tell me that "there's nothing new here". I respond with an "I'm sorry?". And this guy elaborates on how there are no new transformers here. Now, I was annoyed at "there's nothing new here". But to respond to another human I respond, vaguely, with my intentions. The guy proceeds to tell me that "I'm a collector" and I give the "smile on my face seeming to be sincere smart***** response" of "I figured this much." This guy was so into the transformers that he didn't listen one bit about my intentions for buying a toy. I'm pretty sure HE thought it was odd that another person could be buying a transformer for someone other than themselves. Weird.

    I really sort of hate it that when I take my nephew into Toys 'R' Us they have signs up limiting certain toys to five per customer, and when my nephew wants a cool toy he has to elbow past 40 year old fat shut-ins who all want the same thing. It's pathetic.

    I worked at Toys R Us for two days. On my second day, I helped open the store. There was a LONG LINE of old dudes with beards waiting for over an hour before the store opened because it was new toy release day or some stupid thing.

    Then, once the store opens, they get mad at the girl I was working with because the store didn't sell some specific thing the dudes were looking for, as though it was the employee's fault. And I mean they were MAD at HER, directly.

    After they left, she told me that happens every week, sometimes more. She said she would help more old dudes than families/kids every single day.

    That wasn't why I quit the next day, though...

    They aren't just loser collectors. Some of those people are buying for the sake of reselling.

    I personally was very excited when the new figures came out with the re-release of the first triology. My parents got me some figures, and I took the time to go look a few times for one or two specific ones. I tucked them away so I could give them to my kids when I have them, but not before opening each one, and spending a few minutes with my memories.

    My fiancee got me 3 more for christmas this year, some of which didn't exist when I was a kid. I seriously cannot wait to play star wars with my son(s) or daughter(s) whenever they come along.

    You should have said " Ya know, your right, the gobots were so much cooler anyway." and watch the roof lift off,

    I once got a Gobot (or maybe a few Gobots) as a gift, and I was upset that they weren't Transformers. My mother said, "Don't be upset. They're the same thing!" I think I looked at her in stunned horror that she would say such a thing

    I did the same thing. They bought me the freaking motorcycle that was the leader of the bad guys of the Gobots, if I remember right. I used to have the autobots and decepticons gang up and beat up it and the other couple gobots I had. I eventually turned them into "battle damaged" by ripping off arms, etc.

    I was pre transforming toys. All we had was G I Joes (the big ones) and Legos. If we wanted to transform our toys, we would switch their heads or clothes.

    If you consider my nun's habit "cross dressing" then yes. I save the lacy stuff for the sheep.
