I realized I allowed your continued ineptitude to drive me away from characters and a mythos I’ve loved for most of my life. I realized the 200x is truly dead with glaring holes never to be filled. I also realized for about $5.00 more a Classics figure, I could avoid you altogether and let other people put up with your nonsense for me. That’s how I went about things.
It took five open browser windows to do it, and I had to cart him in one and pay in another, but I got Roboto on 15 October in about five minutes. Not bad, Matty. If I had any faith the next few months weren’t going to be a clusterMatty with several more-desired figures coming out, I’d breathe a bit easier. But I don’t, so I won’t.
Will I manage to get Grizzlor, two sets of palace guards, and whatever else my love/hate relationship with the Masters of the Universe Classics line demands through you, Matty? Or will I have to pay someone further Matty Frustration Fees to get what I want?
Either way, you’re going to hear about it.
Your Former and Current Friend,
Two By The Ways…
First, to my fellow MOTUC nerds, I know what the problem represents, but the reversed shoulders on Roboto were a non-issue. I know I would never have noticed them if not for the torrential flow of Gotcha preceding the sale and I’d venture to guess 95% of you wouldn’t, either. Some things are not worth an uproar.
Second, my re-dedication to the Classic line, and indeed to Masters of the Universe itself, lead me to take on a little project to share with my fellow fans. I finished it about a week ago and will post it soon. You may get a kick out of it, you may not, but it’s the type of nerd minutia I love and I really enjoyed putting it together.
See you back here soon.
